"If you liked Big Little Lies, you'll want to crack open this new novel by Nicole Baart." -Southern Living An engrossing and suspenseful novel for fans of Liane Moriarty and Amy Hatvany about an affluent suburban family whose carefully constructed facade starts to come apart with the unexpected arrival of an endangered young girl. I have something for you. When Quinn Cruz receives that cryptic text message from her older sister Nora, she doesn't think much of it. They haven't seen each other in nearly a year and thanks to Nora's fierce aloofness, their relationship consists mostly of infrequent phone calls and an occasional email or text. But when a haunted Nora shows up at the lake near Quinn's house just hours later, a chain reaction is set into motion that will change both of their lives forever. Nora's "something" is more shocking than Quinn could have ever imagined: a little girl, cowering, wide-eyed, and tight-lipped. Nora hands her over to Quinn with instructions to keep her safe, and not to utter a word about the child to anyone, especially not their buttoned-up mother who seems determined to pretend everything is perfect. But before Quinn can ask even one of the million questions swirling around her head, Nora disappears, and Quinn finds herself the unlikely caretaker of a girl introduced simply as Lucy. While Quinn struggles to honor her sister's desperate request and care for the lost, scared Lucy, she fears that Nora may have gotten involved in something way over her head-something that will threaten them all. But Quinn's worries are nothing compared to the firestorm that Nora is facing. It's a matter of life and death, of family and freedom, and ultimately, about the lengths a woman will go to protect the ones she loves.

"Listeners will be engaged from the opening cryptic message: "I have something for you." Quinn receives the text from her sister, Nora, just before Nora drops off a mysterious little girl at Quinn's lakeside home in contemporary small-town America. When Nora disappears, three protagonists, the two sisters and their mother, plus other key characters, are forced to examine loyalties as secrets are revealed that rock the foundations of the family. Narrator Susan Bennett rises to the challenge of bringing to life a wide group of mainly female characters. She uses subtle vocal cues rather than full-blown characterizations. This suspenseful listen is further enhanced by Bennett's well- paced and assured narration, which will keep listeners engrossed right to the story's dramatic end.
