SPOILERS for Pieces of Her by Karin Slaughter

So Andy's mom, Laura, was in Witness Protection.  She was part of the cult in the 80's.  It was her brother, dying of AIDS, that convinced her to turn them all in to the feds in exchange for Witness Protection.   She was pregnant with the leader's baby, Andy, when she went to the feds. 

She was recognized when the story of the mall shooting went viral and Laura was worried about Andy's safety, rightfully so. 

After being captured herself, Andy is rescued by her mother.  Her mother then visits her father in prison while wearing a wire and guarantees that he will never be released from prison.

SPOILERS for Give Me Your Hand by Megan Abbott

SPOILERS for Give Me Your Hand by Megan Abbott

Kit's Secret - She had a sexual encounter with the (adult) man that she dog-sat for in exchange for a pair of running shoes. 

Diane's Secret - She killed her father. 

When Diane appears in the lab all those years later, Kit gets drunk and sleeps with her colleague.  In the throws of passion she tells him about Diane.   A few days later she goes to the lab to convince him to keep the secret and a beaker explodes cutting his artery - he bleeds out.   Diane comes in and believes that Kit killed him and "helps" her clean it up.  And refuses to let her call the police.  Kit follows her lead, but lives in fear of being found out. 

Diane also kills Segei.  And frames him for the murder of the colleague. 

But their mentor figures it out. And calls the police. 

The epilogue is ten years in the future and it is revealed that the man who was part of Kit's initial secret was the boyfriend of Diane's mom.  Diane had figured that out from Kit's secret and tried to get her narcissistic mother to see the truth.  Instead she banished Diane and started the chain of events that ruined her life.

SPOILERS for Charlotte Walsh Likes to Win by Jo Piazza

We don't know who wins. (This irritates me to no end!!!)  The author ends the book on election night as Charlotte and Max go to hear the results. 

Their marriage was in tatters because Max had an affair a few years ago and his mistress got pregnant. With a son.  Charlotte had her transferred out of the country before Max found out.  Charlotte's opponent found out and released the information.

SPOILERS for Ghosted by Rosie Walsh

Wow!  So much to spoil with this one!

First of all, it was Sarah who killed Eddie's sister in a car accident all those years ago.  Through the whole book, I thought it was Hannah who died.  And then I thought it was Eddie who had killed Hannah.  I was shocked to find out how wrong I had it.   Eddie's sister was Hannah's best friend. And after the accident, Hannah refused to speak to her sister.  They have gone nearly 20 years without speaking to each other.

When Eddie and Sarah finally connected again it was so that she could tell him her side of the story from that day.  He listened to her, kissed her goodbye and walked away from Sarah. Forever.

And then it is revealed that Sarah is pregnant!

Then Sarah receives a phone call from her sister. In an effort to hear her better she crosses the street, only the author leaves you thinking that Sarah gets hit by a truck!

The timeline jumps forward and back to England.  Eddie discovers that Sarah is back in England and pregnant.  After the author plays with your fears that Sarah is going to die in childbirth, they end up back together.  And Sarah and Hannah have made up.

SPOILERS for The Party by Robyn Harding

Hannah's friends snuck in boys and drugs and a lot more booze for her party.  In the haze of drugs and booze, one of the girls got injured and lost an eye.  The daughter of a single mother. 

Another one of Hannah's friends started to hit on her father and he didn't think that he could tell anybody about it because then she would tell that Jeff gave them champagne.  Oh yeah, and there is a little fact that Jeff had been doing LSD.

After the party, there was a lot of bullying going on and Ronni attempted suicide.  That is what shook Kim out of her affluenza and realized that staying married to Jeff was only going to destroy them all. 

The book ended with you realizing that Hannah was a little sucky and always looking to insert herself into the popular crowds.

SPOILERS for The Summer List by Amy Mason Doan

First of all - the reason why Alex faked the invitations to both Laura and Casey was that Casey was sick. She has ALS and Alex wanted the girls to come to terms before it was too late.

Laura ran away all those years ago because she overheard a conversation between her boyfriend and Alex and she misinterpreted it to be that they slept together, in reality, Alex knew about the ALS gene and didn't want to tell Laura because Laura wouldn't be able to keep the secret from Casey.

Finally, Laura and Casey ended up being half-sisters.  They shared the same father.

Oh and Casey is gay.
