The Deepest Secret, by Carla Buckley, is part intimate family drama, part gripping
page-turner, exploring the profound power of the truths we’re scared to
face . . . about our marriages, our children, and ourselves.
Eve Lattimore’s family is like every other on their suburban street, with one exception. Her son Tyler has a rare medical condition that makes him fatally sensitive to light, which means heavy curtains and deadlocked doors protect him during the day and he can never leave the house except at night. For Eve, only constant vigilance stands between an increasingly restless teenage son and the dangers of the outside world.
Until the night the unthinkable happens. When tragedy strikes, it becomes clear that this family is not the only one on the quiet cul-de-sac that is more complicated than it appears. And as Eve is forced to shield her family from harm, there are some crises she cannot control—and some secrets that not even love can conceal.
Jenny Milchman's Ruin Falls is an edge-of-your-seat story about a mother determined to find her missing children. On a family vacation, Liz Daniels and her family stop at a hotel for the night. In
the morning, when Liz goes to check on her sleeping children, Ally and Reed are nowhere to be found. Blind
panic slides into ice-cold terror as the hours tick by without anyone
finding a trace of the kids. Soon, Paul and Liz are being interviewed by
police, an Amber Alert is issued, and detectives are called in.
Frantic worry and helplessness threaten to overtake Liz’s mind—but in a sudden, gut-wrenching instant she realizes that it was no stranger who slipped into the hotel room that night. Someone she trusted completely has betrayed her. Though she knows that Ally and Reid are safe, Liz will stop at nothing to find them and get them back. From her guarded in-laws’ unwelcoming farmhouse to the deep woods of her own hometown, Liz follows the threads of a terrible secret to uncover a hidden world created from dreams and haunted by nightmares.
