Pieces of Her by Karin Slaughter

What if the person you thought you knew best turns out to be someone you never knew at all? Andrea Cooper knows everything about her mother, Laura. She knows Laura has spent nearly her whole life in the small beachside town of Belle Isle, Georgia; she knows Laura's never wanted anything more than to lead a quiet life in this conventional community; she knows Laura's a kind, beloved speech pathologist who helps others; she knows Laura's never kept a secret. But Andrea's certainty is shattered when a horrifying act of violence reveals a different side of Laura-a cool woman who calmly faces down a murderer. For nearly thirty years Laura has been hiding from the woman she once was, lying low in the hope that no one would ever find her. But now she's been exposed, and nothing will ever be the same again. To save her mother, Andrea embarks on a desperate journey following the breadcrumb trail of her mother's past. Andrea knows that if she can't uncover the secrets hidden there, there may be no future for her mother ... or her. Audiobook.
