Aza Holmes doesn’t have a lot of friends, and her best friend Daisy, a gregarious and outgoing fan fiction writer, sometimes finds her a bit exhausting. This is not surprising, as Aza struggles with anxiety and OCD. When local billionaire Russell Davis Picket goes missing and there is a reward offered for news of his whereabouts, Daisy remembers that Aza knows his son. Daisy orchestrates a scenario so that Aza can reconnect with Davis, who she hasn’t seen for a few years.
Aza and Davis met at a camp for children who’d lost parents. Aza’s father died, as did Davis’ mother. With his father missing, Davis and his younger brother are pretty much orphans. There’s a housekeeper who cooks for them, but they are left to their own devices in a huge and lonely house, and when Daisy and Aza suddenly show up, Davis is naturally suspicious about their motives.
The book is told from Aza’s perspective, and I found it rather difficult to read on occasion, as Aza’s mental illness keeps spiralling out of control more and more as the book progresses.
