It was the perfect place to disappear…
One sultry summer, Maureen Haddaway arrives in the wealthy town of Opal Beach to start her life anew—to achieve her destiny. There, she finds herself lured by the promise of friendship, love, starry skies, and wild parties. But Maureen’s new life just might be too good to be true, and before the summer is up, she vanishes.
Decades later, when Allison Simpson is offered the opportunity to house-sit in Opal Beach during the off-season, it seems like the perfect chance to begin fresh after a messy divorce. But when she becomes drawn into the mysterious disappearance of a girl thirty years before, Allison realizes the gorgeous homes of Opal Beach hide dark secrets. And the truth of that long-ago summer is not even the most shocking part of all…
This book follows two timelines- Maureen in 1985 and Allison in present time. Maureen went to Opal beach to start a new life, but before the summer is over, she vanishes. Decades later Alison is offered to house-sit in Opal beach and after a divorce she finds it a great idea. The more time she spends in Opal beach, the more she starts to put together the pieces what happened to Maureen decades ago.
It was a good thriller, it kept my interest from starting the book until finishing it. It wasn’t very fast paced book, but it was very atmospheric and parts of the book gave an eerie feeling while reading. It was an excellent read; the story had a good conclusion with interesting twists towards the end.
