For fans of Jodi Picoult comes an enthralling domestic thriller about the lies we tell, and let ourselves believe, in the name of love.
The first thing you should know is that everyone lies. The second thing is that it matters.
On her way to her nineteenth wedding anniversary celebration, Natalie Falcone leaves the struggling restaurant she owns with her brother-in-law, Vince. She doesn??t speak to him on her way out; they haven??t spoken in months. Out on the sidewalk, she gets a phone call every mother dreads: It??s from a hospital emergency room in the town where her daughter, Arden, attends college. Arden??s been in a fire, along with Natalie??s niece, Rory??"Vince??s daughter and Arden??s best friend.
Natalie rushes to the hospital and learns that both Arden and Rory lie unconscious, and that another student has died in the blaze. The police suspect arson.
As the investigation mounts, Natalie struggles to piece together the elusive details of Arden??s and Rory??s freshman year. Growing up, Rory was charming, popular, and charismatic, while Arden was artistic, perceptive, and reserved. They were different yet inseparable, more like sisters than cousins. But the case unearths a different portrait??"of a complex friendship, a love triangle, a fight, and a girl who was struggling more than anyone realized. To discover what really happened that tragic night, Natalie??s and Vince??s families must confront the one truth that ultimately emerges: Nothing is ever exactly what it seems.
