Lie Still by Julia Heaberlin

When pregnant Emily and her lawman husband move from New York City to a small, wealthy Texas town, she finds herself enmeshed in mean girl culture and doesn’t take it seriously until the town’s queen bee goes missing–and a mysterious package hinting at her own dark past shows up on her doorstep.

Lie Still is your next read if you liked Gone Girl–and if you did, this is probably all I need to say.

Lie Still hooked me from the very beginning with its promise of an unreliable narrator, a setting and secondary characters with tons beneath the surface to discover, and a relentlessly forward-moving plot. Yum and delicious. Like any good thriller, I felt like it was over too soon but was completely satisfied with how well Julia Heaberlin wrapped things up.
