TW: Sexual Assault, Self-harm, Suicide, Sexual Exploitation of Children, Drug/Alcohol Abuse
Eden is a book full of dark secrets and the lengths to which a town will go to keep them buried.
Evelyn left Eden, LA a long time ago and has tried to forget that tragedy that befell her family. In fact, in a haze of booze and prescriptions, Evelyn finds that she has gaps in her memory. Her world is turned upside down when a call comes from Eden telling her that her sister’s body has been found. Evelyn returns to Eden, and discovers that she can’t trust her memory as much as she thought.
I enjoy a dark mystery, and small town, buried secrets always intrigue me. I liked the different character perspectives, and the journal entries. I always felt like I was starting to understand what was happening, until Schwartz gave more information and I would be lost again.
If you’re a fan of Karin Slaughter or Gillian Flynn, I think you’ll enjoy Eden.
I received a copy of this book for free and am writing this review voluntarily.
