In this twisting domestic suspense thriller from the acclaimed author of The Secrets We Share, the aftermath of a murder in a quiet New England coastal town reveals a web of dark secrets . . . Monreith, Massachusetts, was once a small community of whalers and farmers. These days it's a well-to-do town filled with commuters drawn to its rugged coastline and country roads. A peaceful, predictable place--until popular restaurateur Laurel Thibodeau is found brutally murdered in her own home. Suspicion naturally falls on Laurel's husband, Simon, who had gambling debts that only her life insurance policy could fix. But there are other rumors too . . .Among the group of six friends gathered for Alice Stone's fortieth birthday, theories abound concerning Laurel's death. Max Barbosa, police chief, has heard plenty of them, as has his longtime friend, Unitarian minister Georgia Fitzhugh. Local psychiatrist Farley Drake is privy to even more, gleaning snippets of gossip and information from his patients while closely guarding his own past.But maybe everyone in Monreith has something to hide. Because before this late-summer evening has come to a close, one of these six will be dead.  And as jealousy, revenge, adultery, and greed converge, the question becomes not who among these friends might be capable of such a thing, but--who isn't?… (mais)

Who to Believe by Edwin Hill

Brilliant, well-crafted, riveting read ~ drew me in, grabbed hold, and wouldn’t let me go ~

What I liked:
* Superb story telling
* The plot, pacing, and setting
* Multiple – seven – viewpoints all sharing new elements that build the suspense
* That characters are more than they appear to be on the surface
* Thinking about what it might have been like to have been any one of the characters in this story and deciding which one, if any, I could most relate to or might find myself willing to call friend
* Thinking about what would have motivated the murders and what would create a person willing to kill someone – or more than one person
* The few more sane characters that helped balance out those who were less so
* The dark, twisted, deviousness of the story and just how brilliant it truly was
* That it made me think and care and really hope that at least the teenagers might come out okay in the future

What I didn’t like:
* Who and what I was meant not to like
* Thinking about evil, murder, and the way some can appear so “good” but have rather rotten centers

Did I enjoy this book? Yes
Would I read more by this author? Yes

Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books for the ARC – This is my honest review.

I had so much fun with this book. It was filled with twists and turns that kept me guessing until the end (which is hard to do)… The Friday after small town restaurant owner, Laurel Thibodeau’s body was found brutally murdered, a group of friends gather to celebrate Alice’s 40th birthday. In attendance are the chief of police, the town’s psychiatrist, the town’s mechanic, the town’s preacher, an out of town true-crime documentarian and two of the town’s outcast teenagers. On the surface the party goes off without a hitch, but by the end of the weekend the body count will rise, and everyone will be a suspect. Gasp! I really liked the format of this book; each chapter covers one person’s perspective from Friday to Sunday. Person by person the pieces of the puzzle start to fall into place and things you thought you knew in the last chapter, are now shining in a new light. The entire story is fresh, and the small-town atmosphere gives it a claustrophobic vibe. Everyone knows everyone, but everyone keeps secrets. You will never guess the outcome of the story, but you will have fun trying. Fans of Gillian Flynn, Lane Moriarty and Ruth Ware will have a fun time with this book. ( )

4.5 stars.

Who to Believe by Edwin Hillis fiendishly clever mystery with plenty of shocking twists and unexpected turns.

This exceptionally well-written mystery has a great cast of well-developed characters. Each of the characters are well-drawn and easy to relate to. The chapters are written from different perspectives and each voice is quite distinct. Everyone seems to have a secret so when another person turns up dead, could one of them be the killer? And why would anyone want to kill the newest victim? Could the motive be tied to the still unsolved murder from the week prior?

Who to Believe is a suspense-laden mystery with an engaging storyline.The coastal setting springs vividly to life as do each of the characters. Tantalizing revelations keep the story moving at brisk pace. Edwin Hill brings this brilliant mystery to a unexpected yet highly satisfying conclusion. ( )

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

The murder of a woman in a small New England town opens a malignant Pandora’s Box of secrets, lies, and betrayals.

Hill takes this reliable setup and uses it, via rotating first-person narrators, to explore the secret lives of half a dozen people intimately involved in a series of brutal killings driven by narcissism, fear of exposure, and even a kind of inside-out vigilantism. “Who to Believe” is more than a title – it’s a cautionary note to the reader, because most of the characters in this tightly-packed novel have only a nodding acquaintance with the truth.

If there’s a problem with the book, it’s that it’s hard to find anyone to root for, with the possible exception of 13-year-old Chloe, whose family life goes from bad to worse as Hill’s other protagonists and victims trade places in an intricate dance of betrayal, deception, and violence. And, if one wants to be picky, it all slots together just a shade too slickly. There’s no reason to play Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon here, because no one is more than two degrees away from murder.

Readers interested in character development will find a lot to chew on as each character slowly reveals more and more of their inner self, and fans of whodunnits will have a ball, trying to foresee all the twists and turns. But if you’re looking for true nail-biting suspense or brilliant crime-solving tales, you’re going to need to keep looking. ( )

Who to Believe by Edwin Hill is a fast paced mystery with each section told by a various character, each with many reveals, all adding the perfect addition to the story. With the last character adding a fantastic twist at the end.

With so many secrets, dead bodies, and past deeds being presented, Hill is able to keep the reader engaged and wanting to continue to read to find out what happens next. I really enjoyed when the characters' stories would intertwine a bit and you could see how one thing was happening simultaneously with another. I thought this showed a lot of skill being able to write like this.

Each character was very well developed, and even the teen girl was very believable, which can sometimes be a big feat for an adult, male author. And I enjoyed Det. London, a character from The Secrets We Share, being part of this book too. I love when authors do crossovers with their characters. Between the many, and some, major reveals, great characters, and a very satisfying conclusion, I highly recommend Who to Believe. ( )

[Starred Review] As soon as readers think they’ve found a safe landing place for their sympathies, Hill detonates one of the series of game-changing twists he’s planted throughout the narrative. Fans of Riley Sager will want to check this out.

[Starred Review] Structured to maximize suspense, the tale unfolds in seven parts, each with its own nuanced first-person-present narrator and unique voice. Every new section delivers a kaleidoscopic turn, reframing all that came before and keeping readers perennially off-kilter. A devilishly clever delight.
