Finished Only Daughter by Anna Snoekstra. I received a copy for review.
It’s been 11 years since Bec Winter vanished. She had been acting strangely before–claiming that there was a ghost or something in her house, saying that blood would appear in her room despite there being no obvious injuries. Now someone claiming to be Bec has come home. (She was arrested for shoplifting and she looked like Bec, so she knew it would work to get her off the hook.) Except Bec’s family is kind of weird. Now fake-Bec (we never know her name) wants to solve the mystery of what happened.
This novel is just really, really unsettling. I spent most of the time viewing everyone as a suspect–poor Bec; there are a lot of potential killers in her life. And then we learn what happened and it is just both completely unexpected and completely obvious. Anna Snoekstra tells us everything; we just ignore what doesn’t fit our own preferred narrative of what happened to Bec.
