Embry Woods has secrets. Small ones about her past. Bigger ones about her relationship with town hero Luke and her feelings for someone new. But the biggest secret she carries with her is about what happened that night at the Sea Cliff Inn. The fire. The homeless guy. Everyone thinks Embry is a hero, too, but that couldn't be further from the truth.
Embry thinks she'll have to take the secret to her grave, until she receives an anonymous note—someone else knows the truth. Next comes a series of threatening messages, asking Embry to make impossible choices, forcing her to put her loved ones at risk. Someone is playing a high stakes game where no one in Embry's life is safe. And their last move...is murder.
I really enjoyed this book! Embry wasn't the best person, she lied and made mistakes, but she wasn't evil, either. She made mistakes, but yeah, this wasn't the way to make things right, It just made things worse.
This was a really fantastic mystery! It was so captivating, to have the choice, come clean or something bad will happen, do something bad or something bad will happen, yeah, she had pretty impossible choices. I just wanted to find out what was going to happen next!
It felt like things were just crumbing to, well, pieces, around her (though that's not what the title refers to, the title is about the pieces of Embry that she keeps hidden) and it just kept getting worse and worse! Which was just so great to read! Loved it!
When we found out what was going on, yeah, that was a pretty tense scene, where there wasn't any good choices, again. And it was sad, that this happened, it was just kinda heartbreaking. that this is what it came to. I was satisfied with how it resolved, and it came to a great ending!
Such a great book, and I enjoyed reading it so much!
