In Copper Falls, Maine, Lizzie Ouellette was the village outcast. Daughter of Earl, the owner of the local junkyard, Lizzie never fit in even after ten years of marriage to Dwayne Cleaves, former high school baseball star and son of the local preacher. When she is found gruesomely murdered in her lake house she rents out during the summers, everyone is concerned. But less about the death of Lizzie and primarily because their beloved Dwayne is missing and is considered the main suspect in his wife's murder. While the focus remains on finding Dwayne, Maine State Police Detective Ian Bird is interested in learning more about Adrienne and Ethan Richards, a wealthy couple from Boston who had been the last ones to rent Lizzie’s lake house. Ethan is a disgraced billionaire. While escaping charges of bilking his clients of their money, he is reviled in the public’s eye. Wife Adrienne, a social media influencer, is also hated for being entitled and overly arrogant about her extravagant lifestyle. Could they be connected to this local tragedy?
No One Will Miss Her is a clever mystery/thriller that is filled with some very good twists and turns. Author Kat Rosenfield keeps things moving fast. In addition to revealing more and more about the case in a manner that will keep you glued, the book also proves to be an interesting commentary on the haves and have-nots in society. The description of the depressed environment in Copper Falls tells volumes. If your interest is piqued, head straight to the book as you don’t want any spoilers to get in your way.
