The story’s are the envy of their neighbours: owners of the largest property in their East Coast Island, they are rich, beautiful and close. Until it all falls apart.

The four children are suddenly dropped by their mother with a single sentence: you know what you did. They never hear from her again.

Years later, when 18 year old cousins Aubrey, Milly and Jonah story receive a mysterious invitation to spend the summer at their grandmothers resort, they have no choice but to follow their curiosity and meet the woman who’s been such an enigma their entire lives. This entire family is built on secrets, right? It’s the story legacy.

This summer, the teenagers are determined to discover the truth at the heart of their family. But some secrets are better left alone.

After reading the authors previous two books, I just knew I would love this one.

This was an incredibly refreshing slow burner, with enough twists to leave you with a sore neck.

The characters in this book were unbelievably thought out and well written, the majority of which were likeable once you got to know them, off first impressions not so much, especially with the cousins themselves.

The plot of this book was impressive with each twist 100% unexpected.
