Before We Were Strangers
Before We Were Strangers | Brenda Novak
Something happened to her mother that night. Something no one wants to talk about. But shes determined to uncover her familys dark secrets, even if they bury her. Five-year-old Sloane McBride couldnt sleep that night. Her parents were arguing again, their harsh words heating the cool autumn air. And then there was that other soundthe ominous thump before all went quiet. In the morning, her mother was gone. The official story was that she left. Her loving, devoted mother! That hadnt sat any better at the time than it did when Sloane moved out at eighteen, anxious to leave her small Texas hometown in search of anywhere else. But not even a fresh start working as a model in New York could keep the nightmares at bay. Or her fears that the domineering father she grew up with wasnt just difficulthe was deadly. Now another traumatic loss forces Sloane to realize she owes it to her mother to find out the truth, even if it means returning to a small town full of secrets and lies, a jilted ex-boyfriend, and a father and brother whod rather see her silenced. But as Sloane starts digging into the past, the question isnt whether she can uncover what really happened that nightits what will remain of her family if she does?

I love that my apartment has a book swap area. I dropped off 7 books, and came back up with these 2 ♥️😂 #NeverEndingTBR

Hooked from the very first page. Definitely my favorite read so far this year. Very realistic and relatable characters which made it so interesting to me.

Let's just say that... I didn't like this book or I hated it. Cos ex-boyfriend marrying the best friend and they share a son together. And the best friend has been trying to act good yet she's kind of double-faced. Turn around and did something bad. The Mr Big bad McBride really gets on your nerves at one point and when you thought you know him, there's a turn in the story. #romanticsuspense

Though it took me a while to get this read, it was really good. I was caught off guard by the ending. My hubby has got the living room done.

SW-T It‘s nice to have a project completed! Looks good 😊 8mo

Haven't been able to spend much time reading. My hubby is laying wood floor in the house, and I have helped a little. Plus we were gone Saturday and Sunday. Hoping to knock out some more of this book, if not all.

This is do next week, so I guess I need to read it. I picked up more books today at the library, with 8 due next Thursday. Hoping I can get them knocked out!

SassyPants617 I‘m in the middle of one, have 3 next to my bed waiting to be read, and am heading to pick up another one waiting for me at the library. Oh, and 3 more library books on my kindle. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤓 I can‘t wait to have tomorrow night off to cuddle up and READ! 8mo
Monica5 @SassyPants617 I know. When I go to return books I tell myself that I am not getting anymore, b/c I usually still have some at home. Of course I leave the library with more.📚 8mo
