'What We Forgot to Bury' by Marin Montgomery

I am excited about reading again! I don't give Five Stars lightly. Marin Montgomery slowly paints the background of this twisted tale and gradually clues you in on secrets necessary to put all the puzzle pieces together that will lead to the explosive conclusion. I felt equally bad and angry with both characters at some point in the story, and I was engrossed in this thriller until I reached the end, which left me saying, "Wait, what?" I had to think back over the journey to see how this could have happened, and yes, it could happen, and I didn't see it coming. Charlotte and Elle's tragic lives strategically collide, and they'll never be the same. Sometimes the "bad guy" isn't the worst guy you'll encounter. I will definitely find more work by this author.
