An innocent night of fun takes a shocking turn in NOT
THAT I COULD TELL, the next page-turner from Jessica
Strawser, author of ALMOST MISSED YOU.
When a group of neighborhood women gathers, wine in hand,
around a fire pit where their backyards meet one Saturday
night, most of them are just ecstatic to have discovered
that their baby monitors reach that far. It’s a rare
kid-free night, and they’re giddy with it. They drink too
much, and the conversation turns personal.
By Monday morning, one of them is gone.
Everyone knows something about everyone else in the quirky
small Ohio town of Yellow Springs, but no one can make sense
of the disappearance. Kristin was a sociable twin mom,
college administrator, and doctor’s wife who didn’t seem all
that bothered by her impending divorce―and the investigation
turns up more questions than answers, with her husband,
Paul, at the center. For her closest neighbor, Clara, the
incident triggers memories she thought she’d put behind
her―and when she’s unable to extract herself from the
widening circle of scrutiny, her own suspicions quickly
grow. But the neighborhood’s newest addition, Izzy, is
determined not to jump to any conclusions―especially since
she’s dealing with a crisis of her own.
As the police investigation goes from a media circus to a
cold case, the neighbors are forced to reexamine what’s
going on behind their own closed doors―and to ask how well
anyone really knows anyone else.
