Equally a mystery of a past murder and the relationships and trust issues between sisters. I didn't love this as much as What Lies in the Woods, but still very enjoyable. ( )

When her husband Nathan loses his job, pregnant Emma Palmer returns to her childhood home – the same home where her parents were brutally murdered fourteen years ago. Emma and her sisters Juliette and Daphne were separated after the tragedy and have each gone their own way. Though they have drifted apart, together they share ownership of the family home. Emma’s return is accompanied by whispers and speculation, visits from the investigators who believe that Emma is the key to solving the cold case from fourteen years ago and the return of significant people from Emma’s past including her estranged sisters. Everyone has secrets and no one is above suspicion. Emma has never forgotten that fateful night but continues to maintain silence on what transpired on the night of the murders, not even sharing the story of her family tragedy with her husband before she returned to Arden Hills. After all, “No one can know..” and the sisters haven't yet broken the pact they made all those years ago, but it’s only a matter of time before the past comes back to haunt them.

No One Can Know by Kate Alice Marshall is a well-written, intriguing read that I overall enjoyed. The author deftly weaves past and present timelines into a tight-knit, suspenseful narrative shared mostly from the perspectives of all three sisters. Though the premise of the novel does not strike you as quite original (for fans of this genre), the skillful execution, excellent characterization, the twists and turns and the satisfying ending make for an engaging read. The pace does falter in parts, but this does detract from the overall reading experience. I loved that the author keeps you guessing till the very last page and I especially enjoy such reads when my predictions turn out to be wrong!

Though I didn’t enjoy this novel as much as What Lies in the Woods overall, I found it to be a satisfying read and would be eager to explore more of the author’s work in the future.

Many thanks to Flatiron Books and NetGalley for the digital review copy. All opinions expressed in this review are my own. ( )

This book is filled with secrets.
Emma Palmer and her two sisters, Juliette and Daphne, were orphaned 14 years ago, when their parents were murdered in their home. No one ever found the killer, but the police suspected it was Emma, since she openly despised her parents and wished them dead.
Now, Emma is pregnant, and with her husband Nathan, is forced to return to the home. The police still suspect Emma, but she is defiant. Her estranged sisters return to watch her and they have secrets of their own. Emma wonders whether they did the right thing years ago.
Secrets about their parents, their friends, and the girls come to light in this thriller.
I enjoyed it, but wasn't surprised about a few twists. ( )

Kate Alice Marshall's newest novel, No One Can Know, is a fast-paced thriller filled with twists and turns. Out now, definitely add this page-turner to the top of your TBR.

A plot-driven family drama revolving around the murder of Randolph and Irene Palmer. Returning to the home she never expected to step foot in again, Emma sets in motion a series of events that she couldn't have anticipated. Told from multiple viewpoints and in a dual-timeline of when Emma and her sisters were teenagers and them now. Emma's older sister Juliette, now going by JJ, had left for college right after their parents deaths, never to be seen again...until now. When younger sister Daphne also shows up after years of estrangement, the tension between the sisters is palpable. Needing to work together to truly solve their parents' murders and clear Emma's name, things get worse when another body is found at the house.

The writing gripped me from the beginning, I read this in four days, which is quick for me (I'm not the fastest reader, although I wish I were). With so many twists and turns, I thought I knew what happened multiple times then found out I was completely wrong. The relationships between the sisters are relatable and understandable, and they each are fully fleshed out characters.

There are trigger warnings for controlling relationships; abuse; and mentions of drugs, alcohol, and promiscuity.

All in all, this is a well-written psychological thriller filled with red herrings and family drama. If you have enjoyed her other novels, then definitely grab this one! I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys the novels of Karin Slaughter, Riley Sager, or Ruth Ware.

Thank you to @NetGalley and @Flatiron_Books for a digital copy for review consideration. All opinions are honest and my own. ( )

Emma and her sisters suffered a terrible tragedy after their parents were murdered under mysterious circumstances. Everyone in their small town knew it had to be one of them that caused it, and it was Emma that took most of the suspicion. None of them talk anymore, and they've all stayed away from the town and their childhood home since.

Emma is now married to Nathan. She's pregnant, which should be a happy occasion, but Nathan reveals he's lost his job. But Emma owns her parent's house, the house she swore she'd never go back to. Nathan convinces her to have them move into the house.

When Emma returns she is immediately met with suspicion and fear. The police still think she did it, after all these years, they just haven't been able to prove it. It becomes clear that whatever happened all those years ago, the consequences are still waiting for Emma and her sisters in that house.

This is my second Kate Alice Marshall book, I've really enjoyed both of them. Thank you netgalley and Macmillan audio for giving me an advanced review copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review. ( )
