Description

Twenty years ago, she survived. This time she may not be so lucky.

On the night that changed everything, Amy Brewer walked out of a house party, trudging angrily away from the friends who made her feel like she didn't belong. Within the next hour, all five of those friends would be dead.

The Memorial Day Massacre, as it came to be called, rocked their small California community and Amy—the girl who had walked away just in time—couldn't escape the media circus...or the guilt.

Twenty years later, ten people with connections to the crime have been invited to a remote cliffside house by a journalist looking to do a story on the murders. But the group quickly learns the event is not what it seems. As a storm closes in and guests begin to die, Amy realizes there is someone in the house who knows more than they admit about what happened that night long ago… and they will stop at nothing to protect their secrets.

Twenty years ago, she survived. This time she may not be so lucky.

On the night that changed everything, Amy Brewer walked out of a house party, trudging angrily away from the friends who made her...

Amy, or Therese as she is known now, is the only survivor of a massacre which left her group of friends dead, twenty years later she is asked to attend a weekend getaway by a journalist with others with connections to what happened years ago.
Amy attends reluctantly but when all the attendees phones and and car keys disappear and one of the group is murdered it becomes clear that one of the party is intent on killing and Amy is in their sights.
This is a really satisfying locked room mystery with an impressive cast of characters - it is really well paced with plenty of twists - i really enjoyed it.

When Amy 'Therese' Brewer is invited to tell her side about a group of teens murdered twenty years before, she walks in to the weekend getaway to find a group of people with close connections to the massacre. The awkward meeting quickly turns deadly, but only after the group's phones and car keys go missing. One of the people in the isolated house is a murderer, and it's only a matter of time before they come for Therese.

Stacie Grey does an excellent job of drawing her cast of characters, giving them complex motivations and secrets, and compelling personalities. But the most impressive part is how Grey manages her twists; I've read quite a few 'murder in an isolated house/hotel/island' books, and Grey managed to take this one in directions I've never seen before, while still giving the reader the type of puzzle they expect. If you like twisty closed-circle murder mysteries, you'll love this book.

Thanks so much to the author, the publisher, and NetGalley for allowing me to review this ARC.
