A cozy little presence until it never again was. A private and ideal neighborhood. Place where neighbors dropped in on neighbors, celebrate graduation and parties together.
However then came the murder of Brandon and Fiona Truett. Ruby Fletcher, a flat mate of Harper Nash, was seen as guilty of the murder and judgemented to serve 20 years.

The second half was mostly about shocking surprise. overall, Such A Quiet Place by Megan Miranda is another great read from her.
