Single mom, Jane moves to a small seaside town on a whim with her young son.  She immediately befriends Madeline, when she stops to help injured Madeline out of the road on the first day of school.  Jane’s son is wrongfully accused of bullying and parental cliques start to take sides.  The author deftly weaves a variety of viewpoints alongside developing police interviews that indicate someone is murdered at a dramatic school trivia night.  Terrible personal secrets come to light, parents behave badly, and the suspense builds all the way to the end when we finally discover who is dead.  A quick, fun read that makes it easy to get wrapped into the small details of each of the characters lives.
