One dead, one missing, and one who was never there.
In a sleepy town in South Carolina, nineteen year old Addy Marks has spent the past two years coming to grips with the mysterious death of her friend Beau and the disappearance of her boyfriend Mason. After the annual Dogwood festival, three boys were seen heading toward a local silo. When morning arrived, Beau’s body was discovered, Mason was missing, and Hunter, the best friend of the two boys, claims he wasn’t at the silo.
Two years later everything is turned upside down when Mason unexpectedly returns to town, but before Addy can meet with him he is found murdered. Coping with her best friend’s lies, uncovering the last standing Silo Boy’s sealed alibi, and protecting her friends from harm, Addy must figure out what happened that night at the silo before anyone else loses their life. As she exposes the tragic mystery, she realizes that everyone holds tightly to their secrets and misdeeds.

It’s my first time back to the silo since everything went horribly wrong, and all of the excitement and romance have long left the air. We built our relationships here, but now without my friends or Mason, it seems haunted…a shell of what it used to be. There are no more boisterous cheers from five friends racing up the metal stairs to play with the Ouija board, split a flask, or share their secrets. The secrets live by themselves in the silo now.
The looming brick structure that once filled me with such joy and adventure currently fills my bones with sadness. It looks so hollow. The farm grows quiet; I hum to myself, because if I stop making noise, I fear that I might hear the echoes of the boys yelling down at us from the window, our converse low-tops pounding up the stairs. The ghosts of who we used to be.
I want to thank the author for providing me with a copy of this book via R&R Book Tours in exchange for my honest review.
When this book was offered for review I read the synopsis and was instantly intrigued. Going into it I knew I was going to like it but I didn’t think I was going to be into it as much as I ended up being so that was a pleasant surprise.
I only have one complaint about this book but at the same time it’s not a complaint. The author has an ability to go into detail about stuff that doesn’t really matter much to the story but she does it in a way that doesn’t bore you. There were a few times while I was reading this that I would be reading a descriptive part and I just wanted to rush through that part because it didn’t matter to the overall story. The only reason I wanted to rush through it though was because I wanted so badly to know what happened to Beau and Mason.
This is a quick read and it had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I never knew who this killer was until it was revealed. Addy was constantly suspecting people and I was right there with her but I never once suspected who it actually ended up being.
Overall I really enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it. It gets 4.5 stars from me.
