This was another excellent audio book written by [author:Nicole Trope|5830919] and narrated by [author:Susan Stafford|521888].
I got hooked into this audio book very quickly. It was a gripping, suspenseful story with realistic characters, combined with lots of tense emotion, accusations, and personal suffering. And secrets, lots of secrets!
At first I wondered how the author was going to manage to write a full length novel based on only two days of interrogation of the two friends. The two friends are being questioned separately by two detectives each who are trying to get to the truth about what exactly happened that caused the accident that killed Anna's daughter, Maya. I needn't have worried. It flowed along easily and didn't become slow or drawn out at any point during the book. There was no break from the escalating suspense and it did not feel rushed, either. Very well done.
I have to commend [author:Susan Stafford|521888] for doing another exceptional performance. She puts so much emotion and drama into the characters, adding to the increasing suspense and anxiety, and brings the characters into 3 dimensional, true to life people. I love listening to her.
This is the second book by [author:Nicole Trope|5830919] that I've listened to.
I liked the first one, [book:Hush, Little Bird|25398542], also narrated by [author:Susan Stafford|521888] a little better. But I highly recommend both, especially in audio book format, without pause.

This is a story about two women who were good friends but whose circumstances almost blew that apart. Both had challenges in their lives, caring for a child whose behaviour was challenging and living with the constant urge to drink. It's a very human story with many sad, happy and frustrating moments. The warmth of friendship shines through despite desperate behaviour.
I think if I'd read this I might not have finished it. Nicole Trope has written better - I much prefer the boy under the table.
I thought this was a bit slow when I first started. once i got t into the book it engrossed
me. grwat but sad story wrote and narrated with great sensitivity.
