Half Moon Bay by Alice LaPlante

A year after the accident that killed her teenage daughter – followed by a divorce and an understandable meltdown – the suddenly-rootless woman moves to Half Moon Bay, a small town on the California coast, to rebuild her life. Shortly after her arrival, though, a small child is kidnapped and later found dead… and then there’s another and another. The protagonist doesn’t have an alibi, but she did arrive about the time the murders began, and her earlier meltdown did include criminal acts, so it’s only natural that suspicion should fall on her. This suspense novel is a cut above most, with good writing and plotting, and well-drawn characters.
