Synopsis from Goodreads: Lila Ridgefield lives in an idyllic college town, but not everything is what it seems. Lila isn’t what she seems. A student vanished months ago. Now, Lila’s husband, Aaron, is also missing. At first these cases are treated as horrible coincidences until it’s discovered the student is really the third of three unexplained disappearances over the last few years. The police are desperate to find the connection, if there even is one. Little do they know they might be stumbling over only part of the truth….

With the small town in an uproar, everyone is worried about the whereabouts of their beloved high school teacher. Everyone except Lila, his wife. She’s definitely confused about her missing husband but only because she was the last person to see his body, and now it’s gone.

My Review: This was such a unique and intriguing thriller! I loved the way this one was done. It left you questioning everything. Who did it? How are things connected? What is really going on? I can't say I really liked Lila but I really enjoyed learning about her and watching her work her way through the mystery. She was smart and clever, plagued by insecurities and anxiety but intriguing never the less. The mystery was well done and I really enjoyed it!
