Up-and-coming floral designer Charlotte, the heroine of this twisty thriller from bestseller Bell (A Simple Favor), lives in Manhattan’s East Village with her husband, Eli, and their five-year-old daughter, Daisy. Charlotte worries about her daughter, a shy asthmatic child. When Charlotte’s brother, Rocco, introduces her to Ruth, his latest girlfriend, Ruth strikes Charlotte as an improvement over his many previous girlfriends. But as Rocco and Ruth become more serious, Ruth develops what Charlotte views as an unhealthy attachment to Daisy, and she’s jealous of her daughter’s close relationship with Ruth. When Charlotte goes to pick up Daisy from an afterschool program and learns that Ruth has taken her, her worst suspicions about Ruth are realized, and she’s determined to find Daisy before any harm can befall her. Bell seamlessly shifts between the present and the past, exploring how Charlotte’s secrets have influenced her. Fans who like surprises around every corner will be drawn to this intriguing tale.
