On an ominous night ten years ago, Trumanell, a beloved and legendaryly beautiful small-town queen, and her worthless father disappeared. Trumanell is presumed that she is dead and the town is still obsessed with finding out what happened to her. They’re okay with their father staying away, but the whole town never let Trumanell go. They also blame their brother Wyatt for their disappearance. Although there was never a single piece of evidence linking Wyatt to her disappearance, the whole town blames him and he becomes a social outcast, an outcast.
Wyatt never came by that evening. Not only does he live as a lonely hermit due to the hatred he receives from the town, but he actively sees and talks to Trumanell. He keeps the house very clean and weighs down the delicious life. Did I mention he’s not exactly mentally stable?
One day Wyatt finds a one-eyed, mute, barely alive girl on the side of the road, lying in a circle of dandelions. Of course he does what any unstable man would do and takes her home to Trumanell. I’m sure Trumanell can take care of her. Right??
Several people in town see him in his truck with the young woman and call the police. Then Odette appears in the story. Odette is a cop who has a long history with the Trumanell and Wyatt. In fact, the story of his life is also connected to the night Trumanell disappeared. That night, while running away from Wyatt and Trumanell’s home, he was in a car accident and lost his leg. She has a soft spot for Wyatt and convinces him to let her babysit this girl.
As Odette continues her obsession with finding out what happened to Trumanell while protecting this lost girl, she finds that she cannot trust anyone and fears for her life. Will you turn the wrong stone and upset the wrong person? Are you wrong about Wyatt? It is dangerous? Where did that stupid dandelion girl come from? Many questions!!!!
WHAT I LOVED
This is a Texas based story and I love it, especially when the writers don’t make all Texans sound like hillbilly. Also, I did the immersive reading with the Kindle and Audible versions and the narrator’s Texan accent was perfect! It’s not finished yet, but it’s definitely not the Midwest. LOVED. IT IS. EVERYONE. In addition, Julia Heaberlin named several Dallas landmarks and neighborhoods. But that’s pretty specific to me and maybe not a big deal for everyone.
I loved Odette as a character. She was so multidimensional, smart in so many ways, but prone to big mistakes. Much of his current life has been closely tied to his past.
I felt unbalanced the entire time I read it. I felt like I was in a car sliding on ice; sometimes in control but mostly out of control, never knowing where it would end up. I was never sure which characters to trust. It always felt like that something was waiting around the corner, but then the question was, who is it waiting for? Who was in danger? Was it Odette? The mysterious girl? Wyatt?
The fact that Trumanell and his father were never found left so many possibilities that I wondered if they would come up. Heaberlin was brave enough to make unexpected choices for his characters. Some were a bit sad but added a lot to the overall story.
There were some interesting topics in the book that you’ll want to delve into; Dandelion, prosthetics, family dynamics, loss, disappointment, etc. The writing style was lovely, Heaberlin’s writing style was far better than needed for such an entertaining and suspenseful plot. Such vivid descriptions and perfect metaphors.
WHAT I DON’T LOVE
There were some things that didn’t make much sense to me and didn’t seem likely. But that goes for almost every thriller.
The plot went off on some unnecessary tangents. There were a few small storylines that could have been cut out, which would have streamlined the story and made it a bit more focused.
Another Julia Heaberlin hit! A fascinating and exciting storyline with fucked up characters and an above average writing style. I recommend it to my friends at GR who love thrillers and to anyone in Texas who is tired of reading books that reduce us to stereotypes.
