From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of One of Us Is Lying comes your next obsession. You’ll never feel the same about family again.

Milly, Aubrey, and Jonah Story are cousins, but they barely know each another, and they’ve never even met their grandmother. Rich and reclusive, she disinherited their parents before they were born. So when they each receive a letter inviting them to work at her island resort for the summer, they’re surprised . . . and curious.

Their parents are all clear on one point–not going is not an option. This could be the opportunity to get back into Grandmother’s good graces. But when the cousins arrive on the island, it’s immediately clear that she has different plans for them. And the longer they stay, the more they realize how mysterious–and dark–their family’s past is.

The entire Story family has secrets. Whatever pulled them apart years ago isn’t over–and this summer, the cousins will learn everything

My Review- So, while I have all of Karen’s books, I haven’t yet gotten a chance to read them. Until now. And now that I’ve read THE COUSINS. I will be reading her other three books. I was so pulled in to this story, I couldn’t put it down until I found out the who, the what, and the why. I love a good family drama, the darker the secrets, the better, and McManus definitely delivered on that front. This would make an incredible movie!
