"Gorgeously written and fully immersive...With prose that positively vibrates and characters who defy expectation, Kelly Simmons brings us straight to Nantucket, into the bright, beating heart of this one-of-a-kind family, and never lets us go."New York Times bestseller Kate Moretti, author of The Vanishing Year and Blackbird Season
Sometimes the people you know best are the ones you should fear the most
Any of the Warners could have been behind the accident. Every one of them had a problem that threatened to tarnish more than their old-money silver.
Having spent the past three decades' worth of summers on Nantucket, the Warners are as much a part of the island as the crust of salt on the ferry. But this year is different: Tripp is no longer the father he was, and it becomes clear that nothing not the beams that hold the house together, and not the values the family clings to can survive the ravages of time. When tradition turns to tragedy, the creaky old house swirls with suspicion. There are just so many reasons to want someone gone.
With no easy answers as to how, why, or who, the Warners must face another frightening question: do they really want to know the truth?

This book was not as lighthearted as I thought it would be. I guess when I see Nantucket, I'm thinking fun in the sun, a vacation with no worries. This book was nothing like that. This family was so dysfunctional in every way. They all walked around each other like they had corn cobs up the arse. The tension was bleeding through the pages as I swept through this story. I don't know who I felt sorry for the most. A thoroughly broken family saga that, believe it or not, was a great escape. Thanks to Sourcebooks Landmark and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
