Polly sits on a barstool in Belleville, Delaware, and Noah engages her in conversation. But neither Polly nor Noah is there by chance. Both have secrets, and one is playing a very long game. Each says they are just passing through, but they both wind up staying for the summer, working in the local tavern at which they met, and embarking on an affair. The fun of this book is figuring out who is the good guy and who is not, and it’s not a spoiler to say you won’t be sure until the end. A solid thriller.
