Their reunion just became a crime scene . . .
Five former college friends reunite over the summer break and English professor June Moody isn’t exactly thrilled about going.
Her oldest friend and enemy Sadie, is hosting a girls’ weekend baby shower at her massive estate where she lives with June’s old crush, now Sadie’s husband, and Sadie’s pregnant cousin Amy, who she has always looked after.
Things are tense and there is a very uncomfortable feeling to the entire group. The husband is living in the lake house and the cousin living in the guest house and the gardener is living in a yurt.
After a night of drinking and revisiting old grudges, the morning finds them with no memory of what happened. The house is destroyed. There is blood on the landing. And Sadie is gone.
Everyone is a suspect and with memories sketchy, the suspense was palpable. The women were all pretty horrible and everyone is lying. I think we all knew who did what early on.
As a character, June was my least favorite. I just did not care for her. But the story will leave you wondering how well you know the people you call friends.
