Claire wakes up in a hospital room. She learns that she is in the Florida Keys. But how or why she got there, she has no memory.
With photos, she can piece together some of her life. Her husband Charlie and her best friend Rachel comb through boxes for photos that will help bring Claire’s memories back.
But Claire feels that something isn’t right. There’s something they aren’t telling her. Did something happen between the three of them? Did she do something awful?
This book is told from alternating points of view. As Claire gradually gets a bit better, she tries to figure out what has transpired in her life. And why the two people closest to her are holding something back.
I thought this was a good read. But I was somewhat curious about the relationship between the husband and the two women, who at various times were in relationships with Claire’s husband.
It was just a little confusing. But all in all, a decent book.
