Greer’s demand for glamour, Riddle has her hands full juggling her eccentric
parents. When she accidentally witnesses a crime close to home, her confusion
and fear keep her silent. As the summer unfolds, the consequences of her
silence multiply. Another mysterious and powerful family, the Devlins, slowly
emerges as the keeper of astonishing secrets that could shatter the
Camperdowns. As an old love triangle, bitter war wounds, and the struggle for
status spiral out of control, Riddle can only watch, hoping for the courage to
reveal the truth. Download and start listening now!
