Thank you to NetGalley and G.P. Putnam's Sons for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Lucy King flees from Brooklyn to rural, hippie-town Woodstock with her small dog and few belongings to escape a life she needs to disappear from. Renting a small cottage on the outskirts of town, she befriends neighbors Vera and John, becoming completely bewitched by their life together. Stories about John float through town, and the couple decides to stage an "accident" that will allow them to disappear themselves, abandoning the whispers and rumors in their community. Lucy becomes entangled in their plot, and can't figure out who she can trust.
Liked: Overall, I enjoyed the setting of Woodstock and the author does well in describing John, Vera, and the home they share there. The writing was strong.
Disliked: Nothing sticks out, I just tend to be very hard on mystery/thrillers...more than any other genre for sure.
I recommend this as a fun summer read! 🌟🌟🌟🌟
Next to travel, reading is my greatest pleasure. When I can combine the two...even better.
