Kind of an unusual story, when one of the protagonists is dead. At first I thought that might be overly depressing but the narrative takes over and interest in untangling the threads of the story overrides that. McCreight masterfully switches perspective between mother and daughter to slowly unravel the mystery of Amelia's death. I appreciate that McCreight didn't anchor the narratives of Amelia and her mother in the need to have "successful" love lives. They were able to be autonomous characters without needing to be "romantically rescued". The story tilted a little toward the YA genre at times when narrated by Amelia but not in an overly immature way. I enjoyed this book; McCreight is a very competent author and storyteller in the thriller/suspense genre.
