Publisher's Summary

Press, tap, refresh....

When Autumn Carpenter stumbles upon the social media account of the family who adopted her infant daughter years ago, she finds herself instantly drawn into their picture-perfect existence.

From behind a computer screen, Autumn watches Grace's every memory, from birthdays to holidays to bedtime snuggles. But what starts as an innocent fascination soon spirals into an addictive obsession that comes to a screeching halt the day the McMullen family closes their Instaface account without so much as a warning.

Frantic and desperate to reconnect with her daughter, Autumn applies for a nanny position with the McMullens, manipulating herself into Grace's life under false pretenses. And it's only then that Autumn discovers pictures lie, the perfect family doesn't exist, and beautiful people? They have the ugliest secrets.

Unlikeable characters

To quote Autumn, "I couldn't care less".
In order to enjoy a book, there must be at least one character that I can root for, understand, or enjoy. The characters in this book were so mean and unlikeable. I kept thinking, 'How long do I have to listen to these people?"
Even though I had the audio book and a long drive ahead, I finally gave up and turned on the radio.

Good Psychological Thriller

I enjoyed this story. The ending certainly wasn't what I expected. This makes for a good book.
The narrator's were excellent.

Unfinished

The story was going great and at the end after a few big reveals it just left you There was so much more that could have been tied up and not enough for sequel - A bit of a let down.

Meh. Contrived and 2-D.

I made it through, the pacing was ok (on 1.15x speed lol) - but the characters were 2-D and just didn't ring true. Especially Autumn and Daphne. This had potential but lacked heart and depth. Scared to try any others by Kent - tho Stillwater girls sounds perhaps up a few notches in its plot and depth.

Great ending!

Well written and expertly performed. I felt the characters were well developed and I could see the whole story playing out in front of me. The ending has a clever twist you will never see coming!

Disappointing Ending

I really like the story but let down by ending - kind of fizzled out and left me disappointed

Memory Watcher opinion

the narration was excellent. story plot line was very good, but I found the story dragged quite a bit and it wasn't until the last hour or so that it became really good.
