Farren (mmmcookies) | 357 comments Everyone knows the story of “the girl from Widow Hills.”

Arden Maynor was just a child when she was swept away while sleepwalking during a terrifying rainstorm and went missing for days. Strangers and friends, neighbors and rescue workers, set up search parties and held vigils, praying for her safe return. Against all odds, she was found, alive, clinging to a storm drain. The girl from Widow Hills was a living miracle. Arden’s mother wrote a book. Fame followed. Fans and fan letters, creeps, and stalkers. And every year, the anniversary. It all became too much. As soon as she was old enough, Arden changed her name and disappeared from the public eye.

Now a young woman living hundreds of miles away, Arden goes by Olivia. She’s managed to stay off the radar for the last few years. But with the twentieth anniversary of her rescue approaching, the media will inevitably renew its interest in Arden. Where is she now? Soon Olivia feels like she’s being watched and begins sleepwalking again, like she did long ago, even waking outside her home. Until late one night she jolts awake in her yard. At her feet is the corpse of a man she knows—from her previous life, as Arden Maynor.

And now, the girl from Widow Hills is about to become the center of the story, once again, in this propulsive page-turner from suspense master Megan Miranda.

Krystal Ayers | 4319 comments I got behind on books in general but I'm starting this today, lol. I have it in physical book and those are always harder for me to get too than ebooks.

Krystal Ayers | 4319 comments Up to chapter 5 and I'm actually a little bored with this. I just don't know what direction it could possibly go in.

I sped this audiobook up to get through it but the whole time I felt like there wasn't much of a plot. (view spoiler)


Farren (mmmcookies) | 357 comments End (view spoiler)

I think I rated this one 2.5 or 3 stars. Megan is capable of writing more interesting stories than this.
