This is one of those books that has the most gorgeous cover that attracts anyone to want to read it!
Thank you Little, Brown and Company for gifting me a copy in exchange for my honest review.
Synopsis: The French Riviera – 25 years ago: One freezing night, as her campus is paralyzed by a snowstorm, 19-year-old Vinca Rockwell, the most beautiful and glamorous girl at her prep school, runs away with her philosophy teacher, with whom she has been conducting a secret affair. She will never be seen again. The French Riviera – present day: Once inseparable, Thomas, Maxime, and Fanny—Vinca’s best friends— have not spoken since graduation. But when they receive a notice from their old school, detailing plans for a new gymnasium and inviting them to come to a class reunion, they know they must go back one more time. Because there is a body buried in the gym’s walls…and they’re the ones who put it there. What really happened that long-ago winter night? Now nothing stands in the way of the truth.
Guillaume is one of France’s best selling authors so I was really excited to get a chance to broaden my horizon in reading international fiction. This was a bit different than I anticipated, but not a bad read! I’m a high school teacher so I’m all for anything that deals with schools. I’ve attended a few of my high school reunions personally, but this was nuts! What a cool thriller! Lots of timelines and characters to keep track of, but a great ending.
