really liked it

What a book! This story is about Laurel Nicholson, a celebrity actress, who tries to unravel a mystery about her dying mother, Dorothy (Dolly). One day, she and her sisters find a photo of their mother and "Vivien", dated 1941. Who is this woman? They thought that they knew about their mom's life but there are some secrets that their mom kept. Then Laurel remembered an incident when she was young, she watched her mother kill a stranger who had come to the house during her baby brother's birthday party. Who was this man? and why did her mother do this?

The story is written from varying viewpoints with flashbacks to fill in the pieces. It is not until the end that the full story is revealed, with a twist at the end! (that I so did not see coming). I wonder how this would be as a movie.
