Publisher's Summary

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - REESE’S BOOK CLUB PICK

Nothing brings a family together like a murder next door.

“I just loved how intriguing the mystery is but also the dynamics between a grandmother, a mother, and a teenage daughter."" —Reese Witherspoon

Think: Gilmore Girls, but with murder.

High-powered businesswoman Lana Rubicon has a lot to be proud of: her keen intelligence, impeccable taste, and the L.A. real estate empire she’s built. But when she finds herself trapped 300 miles north of the city, convalescing in a sleepy coastal town with her adult daughter Beth and teenage granddaughter Jack, Lana is stuck counting otters instead of square footage—and hoping that boredom won’t kill her before the cancer does.

Then Jack—tiny in stature but fiercely independent—happens upon a dead body while kayaking. She quickly becomes a suspect in the homicide investigation, and the Rubicon women are thrown into chaos. Beth thinks Lana should focus on recovery, but Lana has a better idea. She’ll pull on her wig, find the true murderer, protect her family, and prove she still has power.

With Jack and Beth’s help, Lana uncovers a web of lies, family vendettas, and land disputes lurking beneath the surface of a community populated by folksy conservationists and wealthy ranchers. But as their amateur snooping advances into ever-more dangerous territory, the headstrong Rubicon women must learn to do the one thing they’ve always resisted: depend on each other.

Easy listening and intriguing

I enjoyed the matriarchal element of the story and how 3 generations of women come together to solve the mystery. like Agatha Christie meets Columbo.

Light and enjoyable

Kept me guessing to try and solve the mystery through the whole book. The end was drawn out a little bit, but it was still a very nice enjoyable light read for when you just want something to take your mind to another place.

Easy listening

It was an easy book to listen to. Catchy but kinda predictable. Would recommend if you don’t want something too heavy.

Murder She Wrote vibes

Lana’s character is my favourite in this book. High class strong business woman becomes an amateur detective. I found myself enjoying the relationship side of this book more than the actual mystery of a murder.

Somewhat. Interesting

The story was good-enjoyed the tension between Beth and Lana- but overall it was fairly predictable. Best character was Lana!

Definitely a Gilmore Girls meets Murder Mystery vibe

And I’m here for it. What’s there not to love about Lana’s character, the stone cold Mother that’s yearning for thrill and the simple life of a Mother-Daughter duo who’s life gets rattled by a murder near their home. All the twists and turns keep you guessing and it’s all so much fun.
