When Charlotte announces she’s sold her first novel, Ella’s first reaction is jealousy. Then pride. Then trepidation. Charlotte has a habit of using her family as the basis for her writing, which was all well and good when the stories weren’t published for the entire world to read. Ella is not thrilled that her life—thinly veiled—will be in the hands of readers everywhere.
After Charlotte disappears without a trace, Ella turns to her manuscript for clues. And finds that she knows very little about Charlotte’s life. Was she secretly involved with three men, and could one of them be responsible for her disappearance?
Dead Certain asks how well we know the people we think we’re closest to. If you are anything like me, you may start looking at your siblings a little differently and searching for the cracks in their stories.
And I have a recommendation for my sister: Read. This. Book.
