Just finished reading. Thoroughly enjoyed the book - well-developed characters, descriptive but not overly-so language, plenty of plot twists. Disclaimer: I listened to this using Audible so it's possible I missed something. But ... Carolyn? Are we provided an explanation for that relationship? For anyone who is still reading, I don't wish to ruin the ending. but ... ?

Lauren I'd say this was the one part of the story that didn't work. I also never understood why Carolyn felt mad at Amanda, in that last call.

Jenny SPOILER: I also listened to the book and walked away with the same question. The last phone conversation with Carolyn seemed important and kept the mystery going. Leaving it as, "oh it was just a delusion" seemed like a cop out. I thought the imagined father and Carolyn were the weakest parts of the plot.
