What happened to Zoe won’t stay buried…

When Anna Cicconi arrives to the small Hamptons village of Herron Mills for a summer nanny gig, she has high hopes for a fresh start. What she finds instead is a community on edge after the disappearance of Zoe Spanos, a local girl who has been missing since New Year’s Eve. Anna bears an eerie resemblance to Zoe, and her mere presence in town stirs up still-raw feelings about the unsolved case. As Anna delves deeper into the mystery, stepping further and further into Zoe’s life, she becomes increasingly convinced that she and Zoe are connected–and that she knows what happened to her.

Two months later, Zoe’s body is found in a nearby lake, and Anna is charged with manslaughter. But Anna’s confession is riddled with holes, and Martina Green, teen host of the Missing Zoe podcast, isn’t satisfied. Did Anna really kill Zoe? And if not, can Martina’s podcast uncover the truth?


Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Spoiler Free Review

Anna Cicconi takes up a summer job as a nanny in Herron Hill, a small village in the Hamptons. But, when she arrives, she is in the thick of the disappearance of Zoe Spanos. This does not help Anna’s case who looks mysteriously like the missing Zoe.

As we dive deeper into the disappearance of Zoe Spanos, we get hints of Anna’s life and the past and present notions of her life as the investigation of Zoe Spanos continues on.

I gave I killed Zoe Spanos 3.5 stars. I did enjoy parts of this novel but I felt like it didn’t hold as much attention that a murder mystery novel like this book would hold. There were many different aspects to the way Anna is displayed and sometimes there were just some situations were I was just slightly irritated with Anna.

I am a huge fan of murder mystery but something about I Killed Zoe Spanos didn’t really hit the marks for me. Which, is why I’ve always been very picky when it comes to crime fiction and murder mysteries.

I felt like I Killed Zoe Spanos didn’t have the aspects of crime, there was not much of an investigation, except for the short excerpts of Anna being interviewed throughout the book. With murder mystery, there was some thing that did not bring satisfaction to me when reading.

Thank you again to NetGalley for providing me an ARC in exchange for an honest review
