Goodreads Book Blurb:

All Rob ever wanted was a normal life.

Nothing like her childhood, growing up in the lonely, wild Mojave Desert on her family’s ranch, Sundial. Surrounded by dogs, coyotes, and research assistants.

For a while, it seemed like Rob got her wish: A husband, two daughters, the white picket fence, and margaritas with the neighbors. But when a frightening accident in her home reveals a disturbing secret in her oldest daughter’s bedroom, Rob knows her luck has run out. What’s buried out at Sundial could never stay a secret forever, and Rob must risk one last trip out there to protect her family’s future.


My Review:

***Thanks to NetGalley and Viper for an eARC of this book. The following review is my honest reflection on the text provided.

absolute favourite:
I never had any idea where this was going, and any time I tried to guess, I couldn’t have been more wrong. Like any good psychological thriller, not one of these characters is likeable.
Well, Callie grew on me – surprisingly.
This made it even more challenging to predict what would happen because who in this cast of terrible people could be the good guy we’re supposed to be rooting for?

I finished Sundial with more questions than I started with, and while I usually hate that, the genius of this narrative – the secrets and twists – made it entirely acceptable. I’m not going to give anything away, but the manipulation and suspense make this well worth the read.

I am filled with a heart-stopping anxiety, made worse by the suspicion that I am the architect of my own destruction.
