Something She’s Not Telling Us by Darcey Bell
Charlotte has the perfect life with a wonderful career, great husband and perfect young daughter. She knows she shouldn’t be anxious all the time. Compared to her childhood her current problems are relatively minor. Sure, she still worries about her brother Rocco. But Rocco is still sober and he seems to really like his new girlfriend Ruth even though there is something about her Charlotte doesn’t trust. Could it simply be that her daughter Daisy, a cautious and anxious child like her mother, really enjoys being with Ruth? And that Ruth really cares about Daisy? But when Ruth signs Daisy out of kindergarten without anyone’s knowledge the whole frantic family realize that no one knew Ruth at all.
This is a compulsive read that will have you up late and then leaves you wondering what just happened. You’ll be puzzling this one out for a while after you’re done.
