Kept me guessing and kept pulling at my heart.

I love it when there's a plot I think I've got all figured out- one where I am just listening to a nicely told tale of things I know will unfold. But this one I couldn't guess at no matter how hard I tried. I was stumped right up until the final chapter, which bothered the control freak in me. And while it's a great mystery, it's also an emotional tale that kept pulling at different places in my heart (I'm a big sister, and a mother). The characters are rich and complicated, no one is completely perfect or completely awful. I kept myself busy with extra chores so I could finish listening to it; my house longs for me to find books like this.

This is a debut novel for Ms. Lupton, and I'm looking forward to the sequel, Afterwards.

It is entirely worth a spent credit.

Sad but insightful story

I ordered this book because I have a sister, a twin, that I adore and because it sounded like an interesting mystery. I enjoyed the authors writing and insight into sisterly love and connection. The story was almost unbearably sad, however. The narrator read this book well but painfully slowly. I was desperate to speed it up; not only in time but also to lighten the unbearable sorrow of the story. The sadness of it makes me want to hug my sister and I know it will take a long time to shake the story and the feeling that I'm left with.

Sooooo gooood!

This is a wonderful novel. I really liked it. It is more than a story of sisters, it is more than a crime story and it is more than a story of love and loss. The story twists and turns and is well written. You can not stop listening because you have to find out what has happened and what IS happening. I also liked the narrator. She read well and had a nice voice.

A great listen

Though a little frustrating at first with a slow start, I was soon hooked. The twists and turns of the story took me in all sorts of directions but it wasn't until the last moments of the book that it all fell into place - brilliant. A highly recommended listed.
