This story is told in dual timelines. The night before and the day after.
There is also a conversation from months ago with what looks to be her therapist. Laura is angry, self-destructive and obsessed with finding love.
We find out bits and pieces seen through the eyes of Laura as well as her sister Rose.
Laura grew up believing her father loved Rose more. And then he left. Is Laura simply not loveable? She has a pattern of falling for unavailable men and then exploding when they don’t commit. So when her latest relationship is over, she heads home to Rose and Joe. The first thing she does is sign up for a dating app. When she doesn’t come home after one date, Rose isn’t sure who she is more frightened for. Laura or John.
As Rose, Joe and best bud, Gabe search for Laura, long-buried secrets come bubbling to the surface. Did any of them really know the others? The past seen through the eyes of all of them is quite different. But who is right?
This one sent me in so many different directions! It was like trying to untie a complicated knot! There were secrets inside of secrets and when it all came to a head at the end I was left sitting there with my mouth hanging open! What???
