Lie Still

Lie Still - Julia Heaberlin Lie Still ended up being an OK read for me. Emily and her husband have moved to Texas from New York so he can take the job as chief of police. She is finally pregnant with her first child. Life seems to be looking up. She meets the "society" women in town and realizes that their leader thrives on secrets. I did find the ladies amusing, especially Letty.

The beginning of is pretty harsh as Emily tells the story of her rape in college. I wasn't sure what it had to do with the rest of the story. In my opinion, it really didn't. I kind of felt like I was reading two separate mysteries. I think without the rape story-line the disappearance of Caroline and her murder would have been an enjoyable read. For me, it ended up muddying the story with too many suspects and pathways. I was surprised in the end. I thought that the author did a good job in building up to the reveal. I ended up listening to the audiobook and I liked the narrator.
