Publisher's Summary

Dr. Olivia Simon is on duty in the emergency room of North Carolina's Outer Banks Hospital when a gunshot victim is brought in. Midway through the desperate effort to save the young woman's life, Olivia realizes who she is - Annie O'Neill, the woman Olivia's husband, Paul, is in love with.
When Annie dies on the operating table, she leaves behind three other victims: Alec O'Neill, who thought he had the perfect marriage; Paul, whose fixation on Annie is unshakable; and Olivia, who is desperate to understand the woman who destroyed her marriage. Now they are left with unanswered questions about who Annie really was - and about the secrets she kept hidden so well.

Captivating story and characters

Any additional comments?

The author creates interesting characters that I came to care about and will follow thru the rest of the series. She manages to weave history and details seamlessly throughout so that you end of learning about stained glass or lighthouses while following the trials and joys of the characters. Very much recommend!

not her best work

i finished the book, but i admit i fast forward some places. it was a little too drawn out. i feel that you could condense the book in half and still get the substance of the book

Emotional Twisted Tale of Love, lies & Secrets

Wow, this is a book guaranteed to make you cry as the characters deal with grief, curl up in anger and/or anxiety and become restless with seeking and needing to know the truth!! Towards the end, the twisted lies and secrets begin to unfold and show how far acts of abuse, however far in the past can reach into the future if not dealt with. It's a story that tells of the importance of knowing and preserving history with the discernible need to leave the past behind in order to have a future.
This book was engaging from start to finish, well written and overall enjoyable. Fans of Liane Moriarty, Jojo Moyes, Dorothy Koomson and the like will love Diane's books.

Not what I was expecting

this is a story of Annie who dies in the first chapter. Every one in the town thought she was an angel. But she had a dark side to her. Three guys loved her. It becomes a web of love and lies. The truth comes out in the end what Annie has been up too. This book is the first of three in the Kiss River Trilogy. 5 stars from me.

A great story, very addictive story.

I loved it, I had to finish it so I knew what happened but was sad when I had finished it because it was over.
