Arden Maynor was just six years old when she was swept away while sleepwalking in a rainstorm. Fame as the survivor of Widow Hills undid her life, until she moved far away and changes her name. She begins to feel like she's being watched and, soon, her past comes back to haunt her.

Booklist Review: "As the twentieth anniversary of her childhood trauma nears, Olivia Meyer's life begins falling apart. She's the girl from Widow Hills, Kentucky, who, as six-year-old Arden Maynor, went sleepwalking in a record storm and was swept away into drainpipes, from which she was miraculously rescued three days later, becoming a national news story. Now with a legally changed name and a master's degree in health-care management, she keeps her past a secret while making a new life for herself as a hospital administrator in North Carolina. But then she starts sleepwalking again, stumbling one night over a murdered body between her yard and her neighbor's. When the victim is found to be the man who rescued her 20 years earlier, her past is likely to be revealed. Worse, she doesn't know whether she had a part in his death. Miranda, a best-selling author of thrillers for both adults and YAs, sprinkles the present-day narrative with transcripts and reports from Olivia's past, building suspense with startling plot twists that lead to a stunning climax. Another compulsive page-turner from an accomplished author."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "The hospital administrator who now calls herself Olivia Meyer, the narrator of this suspenseful but far-fetched page-turner from bestseller Miranda (The Last House Guest), has put as much distance as possible between her and the drama that riveted the country two decades earlier when, as sleepwalking six-year-old Arden Maynor, she was apparently swept away during a storm into the drain pipes of her hometown of Widow Hills, Ky., until a miracle rescue three days later. But despite the subsequent charitable outpouring, the future proved far from rosy for the traumatized child, who was unable to remember most of her ordeal, and her troubled single mother. The adult Liv seems finally to be starting fresh in Central Valley, N.C.--until one night, while sleepwalking, for a second time, outside, she stumbles over a dead body. As Liv tries to keep Det. Nina Rigby at bay while she investigates further herself, the author throws suspicion on a succession of suspects. The pace quickens with a second murder and the appearance of a stalker. Even though Miranda opts increasingly for surprise over plausibility, psychological thriller fans will enjoy the ride. Author tour. Agent: Sarah Davies, Greenhouse Literary. (June)"
