Littleport, Maine, has always felt like two separate towns: an ideal vacation enclave for the wealthy, whose summer homes line the coastline, and a simple harbor community for the year-round residents whose livelihoods rely on service to the visitors. 

Typically, fierce friendships never develop between a local and a summer girl – but that’s just what happens with visitor Avery Greer and Littleport resident Sadie Loman. Each summer for almost a decade, the girls are inseparable – until Sadie is found dead. While the police rule the death a suicide, Avery can’t help but feel there are those in the community, including a local detective and Sadie’s brother, Parker, who blame her. Someone knows more than they’re saying, and Avery is intent on clearing her name before the facts get twisted against her.

3/5 Stars

The story line is good, it’s a very slow build up to the “climax” but the twist at the end makes the story a bit more exciting. It’s dreadful to read. The first 10 chapters go by so slowly, yes you get to know the characters but not as fast as I would like. Also, if you’re listening to this book on audible the narrator is HORRIBLE, so I would recommend a tangible book.

“I’ve known enough of loss to accept that grief may lose its sharpness with time, but memory only tightens. Moments replay.”

Megan Miranda, The Last House Guest

“Their world was old money that said you didn’t have to show it to prove it. The clothes didn’t matter; it was the details, the way you carried it, and I could never get it just right.”
