I love @meganlmiranda books and this was really good! It fast paced with so many great twist and turns. I really enjoyed the characters and felt they were easy to connect with. I did feel like the story dragged a little in the middle so I was starting to lose interested but I kept reading and it pick back up. I enjoyed the relationship with Arden and her Mother because it felt real and showed the turbulence between them. This isn’t my favorite of Miranda’s book but still a good read. Thank you to @netgalley and @simonandschusterfor the ARC. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫.
Arden Maynor was just a child when she was swept away while sleepwalking during a terrifying rainstorm and went missing for days. Strangers and friends, neighbors and rescue workers, set up search parties and held vigils, praying for her safe return. Against all odds, she was found, alive, clinging to a storm drain. The girl from Widow Hills was a living miracle. Arden’s mother wrote a book. Fame followed. Fans and fan letters, creeps, and stalkers. And every year, the anniversary. It all became too much. As soon as she was old enough, Arden changed her name and disappeared from the public eye.
Now a young woman living hundreds of miles away, Arden goes by Olivia. She’s managed to stay off the radar for the last few years. But with the twentieth anniversary of her rescue approaching, the media will inevitably renew its interest in Arden. Where is she now? Soon Olivia feels like she’s being watched and begins sleepwalking again, like she did long ago, even waking outside her home. Until late one night she jolts awake in her yard. At her feet is the corpse of a man she knows—from her previous life, as Arden Maynor.
