About the Book:
Hollow’s Edge used to be a quiet place. A private and idyllic neighborhood where neighbors dropped in on neighbors, celebrated graduation and holiday parties together, and looked out for one another. But then came the murder of Brandon and Fiona Truett. A year and a half later, Hollow’s Edge is simmering. The residents are trapped, unable to sell their homes, confronted daily by the empty Truett house, and suffocated by their trial testimonies that implicated one of their own. Ruby Fletcher. And now, Ruby’s back. With her conviction overturned, Ruby waltzes right back to Hollow’s Edge, and into the home she once shared with Harper Nash. Harper, five years older, has always treated Ruby like a wayward younger sister. But now she’s terrified. What possible good could come of Ruby returning to the scene of the crime? And how can she possibly turn her away, when she knows Ruby has nowhere to go? Within days, suspicion spreads like a virus across Hollow’s Edge. It’s increasingly clear that not everyone told the truth about the night of the Truett’s murders. And when Harper begins receiving threatening notes, she realizes she has to uncover the truth before someone else becomes the killer’s next victim.
The darkness at the heart of us here, with our view of the water and our lazy summer days. Our barbecues and friendships and parties. Such a close familiarity. Such a quiet place.
Wow, Megan Miranda has really delivered with Such a Quiet Place. This slow burn of a novel had me flipping the pages fast entire way through. It is intelligently written and has so much mystery and suspense...I loved this whodunit and was surprised by the reveal. Mary Kubica is a master at dropping clues, some that have you scratching your head and some that hit you right in the face...but they are all so darn well placed. You need to be on your toes to try and put together your own theory and mine was completely wrong...I love when a book can do that. This is my first book by Ms. Miranda and it definitely won't be my last. I highly recommend.
Thank you NetGalley, Megan Miranda and Simon & Schuster for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
