A solid mystery with an appealing upstate New York setting. A bit of pagan ritual, some family dynamics and a love triangle (of sorts) add color as a folklore teacher unravels a cold case that leads to more present day murder.

This dark academia thriller was likely an homage to Donna Tartt’s The Secret History. It was not quite as well-crafted, but it did not suffer from the latter’s excesses either. A solid story.

It took me a while to get into this one.....Daphne is a completely unlikable and annoying character and her mysogonystic and whiney husband is simply insufferable.

While bringing postpartum depression to light is a commendable effort....this book contains too much inaccuracy on the subject. This trend of victimizing, almost glamorizing, these women who harm children is deplorable. PPD has become the designer disorder of new Moms. Pushing these ideas and normalizing a lack of bonding with your baby is not ok....nature ensures the future of our species through procreation.....instant bonding and selfless love for our children ensures the newest and most vulnerable members of our species are nurtured and protected. Failure to bond with an infant isn't normal...in fact, its a red flag.

The plot was fairly easy to figure out....although there were enough plot twists to keep it interesting.The ending was a bit too unrealistic.

Overall....it was a decent read but the PPD angle, the unbelievability, and unrelatable characters keep it from being really good.
