Una splendida serata, una festa fra amici: si ride, si scherza, tutti sono un po' brilli.
All'improvviso Gretchen, la bellissima pianista, sale sul cornicione, avanza, barcolla e... Dillon la spinge nel vuoto!
Marissa ne è certa: Dillon Archer ha ucciso la sua migliore, fragile amica.

I have read some of this authors books before and have enjoyed them. I wouldn't put them quite on the level of Mary higgins clark but close. She writes a good fast paced mystery. I had no idea of the killer until I was at the end and while I did enjoy the book I found the motive for the murders to be a little far fetched and not very logical. Nonetheless I did like it and will read many more of hers.

I love to support West Virginian authors.

Marissa witnessed the death of her closest friend years ago, yet the police decided to use another person's "eyewitness" account instead. Now though, people who were close to the victim are dying. Has the killer returned? Thompson, a WV Writer, is good, but I did figure out "whodunit" just not why.

A murder occurs on an island and many years later the people present come together again. As they become reaquainted, murders begin to occur. Everyone believes the person responsible for the murder years ago has returned. In the last two chapters the plot takes a totally unexpected twist. This was a very enjoyable book and a quick read.

Enjoyed the book, very good mystery, I had thought I had figured it out (knew it wasn't Dillon) had someone else in mind, what a surprise at the end. I started reading this book around the middle of February on my lunch break, but had to take it home tonight (weekend) knew I would be itching to finish it to see if I was right. So glad I did,

I checked this out of the library & I really enjoyed the book. This is the first book I've read by this author & I'll definitely be reading some more of her books. It was a good mystery that I couldn't put down. I was surprised at the ending & was completely engrossed. My husband was making fun of my gasps as I read the book. Definitely recommend this book.

I just have to say this was such a good book!! First I wasn't sure if I wanted to read it but I'm so happy I did. It kept me intrigued and kept me coming back for more. And I must comment that I was in love with Eric and Marissa.

I haven't read a mystery/thriller in awhile so maybe they're not my genre anymore. This seemed to me overkill in the body department, the buildup and drama. Lots of characters and it was easy for me to put this book down for several days.

Not one of the better Thompson books. The heroine/hero were very strange. They were written very young/immature in terms of language/actions. The story carried along, but it felt like without any real interactions from the people within it. I start with an older book - maybe from the late 90s.

Too many characters, too long a set up and a story that just couldn't be followed is the impression I got. I could not make it past 75 pages, maybe it gets better, but I wasn't "into it" and didn't feel like putting in the time.

Good book,easy to read. If you like Mary Higgins Clark as I do you will like Carlene Thompson.

Probably too many distractions but I didn't have as much problem putting this book down as I usually do with her books.

I like Carlene Thompson's books - she writes very much like Mary Higgins Clark...another favorite author of mine.

Sure didn't see that coming. Good read. Shocking ending.

This was a good "who done it"! It will keep you guessing as the body count increases.

For the most part it was good. It could of done with a little less back story and more mystery. I will probzbly read her again.

I have liked a couple of her books, but there just wasn't substance for me in this one. Predictable and i found myself skimming to get thru it.

Like a good murder mystery should be. Kept me wanting more and prioritising the book over other things I should be doing!

I figured out the killer about halfway through the book, so there was little tension for me. It was just okay.

Update to review: I've finally finished this book! I was right, I didn't like this book. The conversations didn't get any better throughout the whole book (even at the end!!). I'll say about 90% of the book's conversations felt fake (again, I say "fake" because I can't think of a better word to use). The characters were even annoying. Considering this is one of her newer books, I'm not even going to try reading any other books by her because they'll probably have the same feeling of falseness as ...more
