Darkest Corners by Kara Thomas

Kara Thomas writes for Warner Brothers and she is also the author of PREP SCHOOL CONFIDENTIAL, so to me this seems like a drastic change from her normal writing.
This book is a well-written, suspenseful thriller that checks all of the boxes. If you like all the "Girl" books, you'll love this-it's as well written as Pretty Baby & The Girl on the Train, but avoids the pitfalls and stiltedness of Gone Girl. Tessa is a girl who has lost everything but her Gram. With her dying father, AWOL mother, and a sister who left her, she comes back to her hometown and finds herself trying to piece together the years before a girl went missing-the victim of the ORM (Ohio River Monster). As she struggles to make connections that don't come easily, she stumbles into a web of depravity that will change her life forever.
