About the Book:
It all happens so quickly. One day you’re living the dream, commuting to work by ferry with your charismatic neighbor Kit in the seat beside you. The next, Kit hasn’t turned up for the boat and his wife, Melia, has reported him missing. When you get off at your stop, the police are waiting. Another passenger saw you and Kit arguing on the boat home the night before and the police say that you had a reason to want him dead. You protest. You and Kit are friends—ask Melia, she’ll vouch for you. And who exactly is this other passenger pointing the finger? What do they know about your lives? No, whatever danger followed you home last night, you are innocent, totally innocent. Aren’t you?

My Review:
I am a big fan of Louise Candlish and this read is my favourite so far. The characters are well drawn and the plot moves quickly, I was able to read this in a day...I was left guessing through the whole book as to who and what was really going on and hated to stop reading. This is the typical new couple moves in and old couple makes friends with them trope BUT Ms. Candlish has a way of making it fresh and new. The characters are well defined with some welcome amorality and there are definitely a couple of surprises as the story unfolds. Skillful writing and a great plot, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Half a star off because I kinda figured out one of the reveals.

Thank you NetGalley, Louise Candlish and Atria Books for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
