When Shea Walker, a sunny, easygoing mom, is found dead in a bathtub with a stomach full of booze and pills, the shocking discovery shatters the complacency of her comfortable suburban community.
Kat Burrows, Shea's longtime friend and former neighbor, is hit hardest. How could a woman she thought she knew so well come to such a sordid end? What could lead happy, well-adjusted, responsible Shea to accidentally overdose on alcohol and narcotics? Or, worse, drive her to suicide?
Compelled to uncover the truth of Shea's final months, Kat delves beneath the orderly surface of her familiar world to discover a web of thwarted desire, shameful secrets, and shocking betrayal that suggests a scarier explanation for what happened to Shea. As her carefully constructed reality begins to crumble, Kat must question every reassuring assumption her life is built upon to solve the mystery...and summon the courage and resourcefulness to survive it.

I expected so much more...
From E C Diskin. I have listened to her other books (Broken Grace & The Green Line) and both were outstanding. This book was like listening to an episode of Hollywood Housewives, or what I think an episode would sound like. The characters were not likable, very catty, gossipy and were lacking in common sense.
I made it through about 5 hours but just could not listen anymore. Once I start a book I generally like to finish in hopes of a redeeming quality but I gave up.
The narrators did a good job.
I hope this author will return to her previous writing style.

Dark Emotional Story
This is the theme to this story.....Shea is found dead in a bathtub at the beginning of the story, the rest of the book we find out about the lies and fantasies that all her friends and husband share. Who is really telling the truth and can one friend figure it all out before it is too late. This story has so many twists and turns and will have you guessing right up until the end.
Coleen Marlo and Emily Sutton-Smith were outstanding with the delivery of the story
