Secrets of Eden by Chris Bohjalian (audio)

"Believe no one.  Trust no one.  Assume all of our stories are suspect."

I've been on a Chris Bohjalian fix lately with audio books.  This one is filled with complex characters, heart wrenching situations, unique relationships.  

The book begins after Alice Hayward and her husband are found dead one night in their house.  Alice is thought to be killed by her husband, who then supposedly kills himself.  The story is told from the point-of-view of three different characters: Drew - the town's minister, Katie - Alice's teenage daughter, and Heather - an author of angel books who also survived the murder/suicide of her parents. As the investigation of the deaths continue, each of the characters begins to suspect that they might have got them wrong.

This book was a decent audio book, but it wasn't really the type of book that I love and just have to finish.  I didn't figure out the ending to the last couple chapters, so that was good - but, I just found myself not caring enough about the characters.
