Quiet in Her Bones
Quiet in Her Bones tells the story of famous author Aarav, who has recently moved back in with his father and stepmother after a car accident. After a few weeks of being back, a car with remains is found in the forest near their exclusive Cul-de-Sac. The remains end up being those of Aarav’s mother, who disappeared ten years ago with a quarter of a million dollars. Everyone assumed she had run off, tired of the way her husband treated her. Turns out that she never made it further than the forest, as she was most likely murdered that night. Aarav is determined to discover what really happened to his mother, but there are so many secrets under the beautiful façade of this Cul-de-Sac. Some will do anything to keep them that way.
Excellent writing and characters. You can’t quite make out with Aarav’s head injury and his lapses in memory, whether he’s a reliable narrator or not. Aarav’s character was well developed throughout the book and you spend most of the time getting to know him from his perspective as well as others. We really are our own worst critics. It’s not fast-paced, but thrilling all the same.
