"The author of What Lies in the Woods returns with a novel about three sisters, two murders, and too many secrets to count. Emma hasn't told her husband much about her past. He knows her parents are dead and she hasn't spoken to her sisters in years. Then they lose their apartment, her husband gets laid off, and Emma discovers she's pregnant--right as the bank account slips into the red. That's when Emma confesses that she has one more asset: her parents' house, which she owns jointly with her estranged sisters. They can't sell it, but they can live in it. But returning home means that Emma is forced to reveal her secrets to her husband: that the house is not a run-down farmhouse but a stately mansion, and that her parents died there. Were murdered. And that some people say Emma did it. Emma and her sisters have never spoken about what really happened that night. Now, her return to the house may lure her sisters back, but it will also crack open family and small-town secrets lots of people don't want revealed. As Emma struggles to reconnect with her old family and hold together her new one, she begins to realize that the things they have left unspoken all these years have put them in danger again"--… (mere)

I had to look this book up too. I got too behind in my reviews and I can't remember anything. The reviews triggered some memories of the book that a girl gets pregnant and her and her husband go back to live in the parent's house where the parents were killed. Everyone in the small town thinks that Emma had killed them. Oh, I think it's coming back. And then her husband dies which was a very thankful ending. I couldn't stand him. And then after that, I remember there were some video cameras involved that captured some things on tape. It made it seem like maybe it was the sisters, but in the end, I think it was the cop in town, who was friends with her father, that did it. I did enjoy this but probably not the best thriller ever. Definitely had me guessing a bit trying to figure out who did it and I thought it may had been the sisters. But turns out, it was just a dirty copy again. Oh, there was a flash drive, I remember the flash drive. It's all coming back. And trying to figure out the sisters whereabouts when they were young and this happened. Made you think it was the sisters for a while. Overall, good read. Maybe I would've rated it higher if I reviewed it right after reading it, but here we are. ( )

No One Can Know is a fast paced family drama that centers around the murders of Randolph and Irene Palmer where for years, the focus of the investigation has been centered on their then fourteen-year-old daughter, Emma. But when Emma, now in her late 20s, and her husband Nathan, come back to the house where Emma grew up and her parents were killed, secrets, sisters, and salacious gossip crawl out of the woodwork.

Juliette and Daphne, Emma’s sisters, have been estranged from Emma and each other since the murders. Each having told their own version of the night in question to save themselves. When Nathan ends up dead only weeks after being in the Palmer house with Emma, she is again looked at for murder.

There is a lot going on in this one; perhaps a bit too much. I occasionally had a tough time keeping up with the “then” from the “now” and the stories of Daphne, Emma, and Juliette. I appreciate the hard work that went into this one and Kate Alice Marshall did a good job tying up all the loose ends; no plot holes, no lingering questions. But for as much as there was going on, this one fell a little short. ( )

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. ( )
