While many of the characters were present in previous books, the focus is on an entirely new story line and the focus is on different characters and issues. Great story and enough "mystery" out and about to keep you reading!

Remembering all of the character relationships and enjoying the new ones as well as learning some of the "secrets" make this a great read. A relaxing and most enjoyable time.

Interesting read, though not Ann's best. Could understand why it took so long to catch him. Great police doggedness and determination.

Kate Carlisle has done it again. A novel that is edgey, but not too, and manages to keep you interested throughout. the whodunit with just a hint of romance and many potential guilty parties. Enjoy!

Reading about the investigation that led to the arrest of Gacy was so interesting. Recognizing many of the places discussed as hangouts was a bit creepy, but added interest.

Surprise! This cozy mystery was a fun read. Characters from previous book made we want more. Author develops mystery at a craft fair with interesting sidelights. Would love to go to one like this. Suspects all viable and unique twist, not a steamy read. Just enjoyable.

Because all three authors are talented in their own right, writing a book together had to offer challenges. Thinking about high school and the petty attitudes teenagers have toward each other. Seeing the petty jealousies that had emerged and and the events that had occurred placed focus on those who carry grudges, possibly for 20 years. The planning for the reunion was what seemed to be a thread that pulled the book together and held me. While you began to identify the main culprit early, how the story was finessed to an end, was a gift from all of the authors. Three writing styles of the same genre married into a terrific story.

When characters see spirits or are contacted by them, what is happening? Having that experience confirmed or affirmed can lead to an even more "spirited" adventure.

This book was a page-turner for sure!

This story had so much. Characters you could relate to, relationships you could see change, a horrible situation, and a tragedy that was very real in today's world. Jodi Picoult is a one-of-a-kind author who has a true gift for portraying emotions that leaves you thinking long after the last page.
