I Killed Zoe Spanos by Kit Frick
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?
“Inspired by Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca.” INSPIRED BY. inspired by. INSPIRED BY. Y’all, Rebecca is one of my favorite classics if all time. It’s haunting, gothic literature at its finest, and it has me teetering on the edge. This sounds like the contemporary retelling that I never knew I needed. Between the murder, mysterious arrest, and podcaster detective, I’m hooked. I need to devour this one ASAP.
✔️ THIS BOOK IS ARIEL APPROVED!
This story is set in a seaside town, which Ariel certainly would love. And the storyline for Rebecca falls slightly in the realm of Ariel and Ursula.
