This was a fun quick read with so much suspense. It had a couple of plot twists I wasn't expecting which made me want to keep reading. If I had been able, I would have finished it in one sitting.

Book #13. I couldn‘t put this one down. I enjoyed this book. The ending…. Not what I was hoping for….but I liked the ending.

I‘m not sure how to rate this one…

Do you ever feel like maybe you just weren‘t in the right mindset? Or you finished a previous book that was just so different and you still had a hangover from it?

I feel like this was what happened to me while I was reading this one.

I will say, interesting premise. Wished there was more of a focus on the main character‘s marriage relationship. But then again, maybe that was the point…

I was intrigued by the premise of the book (husband disappears under mysterious, possibly criminal circumstances) and I wanted to know how it would turn out but ultimately the plot and the actions of MC Hannah didn‘t make sense to me.

This book was both beautifully written and agonizingly sad. The writing style was atmospheric, beautiful and paced just right. The characters felt so real to me. This was a lovely read.

Good read!! Husband/Dad Owen disappears and leaves new stepmom Hannah the singular feat of protecting his daughter, Bailey. A good mystery of life that deals with love, loss, hurt, betrayal, and harbored feelings. Caught myself having to pay extra attention but enjoyed it!!

I was so looking forward to this book and raced through it as I was watching it on Apple TV. Read a few reviews about the ending being far fetched and a swift end to what turned out to be a not very interesting mystery. A shame because it starts off well and seems intriguing.

While it does get slow at times, overall it‘s a decent read. My only frustration is that the “mystery” has a lazy wrap up where instead of bringing it out in pieces, the author just paused mid book and explains it all in 2 pages. Second half definitely better than first half.

Before Owen Michael's disappears, he manages to smuggle a note to his new wife Hannah: protect her. Hannah knows exactly who Owen needs her to protect-his teenage daughter Bailey, who lost her mother tragically as a child.

It‘s been a while since I‘ve read a truly absorbing suspense novel. This one definitely fit the bill. Great pacing combined with an intriguing story makes for an excellent start to my summer reading. I figured out part of the mystery just before the MC did. But from there, she was way ahead of me. I was rapt until the full story unravelled to its satisfying conclusion. I‘ll definitely seek out more books by this author! 5/5⭐️

I enjoyed the twists & turns, and the character dev. I never understand why people just don‘t cooperate with law-enforcement, when this happens in books/TV it drives me crazy, but then we wouldn‘t have such a captivating story. I‘ve seen many characters make stupid mistakes,but Hannah did such a fantastic job for her family. The last line in the book might have been my favorite & it sealed the deal for how much I truly liked this one.Book#38in2023

This book is a big page-turner and I wanted to know what happened, but I didn‘t love the writing style. Then the climax felt like it happened faster than it needed to with an information dump, and that felt very unrealistic. Did not love the ending.

I don‘t think I‘ve ever finished a bookspin book this early in the month! Hannah‘s husband disappears and she has a mystery to unravel. I turned the pages quickly because I really wanted to know what happened next. I enjoyed it for what it was but it‘s not a compelling story that will stick with me.

A quick and suspenseful story. Chief developer at a potentially shady internet start up disparate leaving limited info behind for his daughter and recently married wife. Somewhat fantastical I galloped through it and am claiming for #pantone2023

3½ ✨

Fast paced and engaging with a very interesting premise.
Even if it does seem a bit too unrealistic at certain points.
The fact that Hannah seems to know exactly what everyone thought and felt worked a bit on my nerves, but I could look past that and focus on the story.

Great read, well developed characters and great plot. In addition to being a great mystery, it makes you ask yourself a lot of questions.
Also I recommended to buy the book from here from this Amazon seller, thanks me later🙂

I liked the gradual revealing of who Owen really was. Kept me wondering throughout. I didn‘t mind the non-conventional ending, but the whole last portion of the book felt kind of weak, like it could‘ve been MORE. But still eager to see it on screen.

Not my usual genre to be hooked on but I really enjoyed listening to this one! I liked how the author kept me wondering “who IS Owen and what could his past possibly be?”

I know that technically the two women were the protagonists of this book, but I didn‘t like that everything they said and did was about the man in the situation. It bothered me that the main character rearranged her entire life around this man she‘d known 2 out of her 40 years. I must be heartless, but at the end, I wanted her to make a different decision. Ha! I did love the setting in Austin, it‘s a very cool city that I recently got to visit.

The.Great.Catsby You know... I never thought about it like that. But you're totally right. And didn't she move her whole life to be with him? I was not a fan of the ending. 11mo
Erin.Elizabeth10 @The.Great.Catsby Yes! She left NYC, her home, her studio… and then dedicated her life to taking care of his fallout. I mean, maybe that‘s what marriage is, but still… 😝 I am glad I‘m not alone in disliking the ending!! :) 11mo

The premise: the husband goes missing leaving his wife, Hannah, alone with his 16 year old daughter to piece together what happened. At first, it pulls you in, going through pages trying to find out. As the story continues, it is almost as the author prolonged the story and some extending scenarios instead of just using Google. At the end of it, I just felt meh. I‘ll give the author another try.

Meh. I didn‘t find this twisty or suspenseful at all. The good news is that by the time the series premieres on Apple TV next month, I will have forgotten everything about it.

I saw the movie trailer & had to read the book. The first half seemed so familiar, but I‘m not sure why. The second half did not. It was an adventure…I mean what if your new husband just disappeared in the middle of a scandal at his company and left you with his 16 yr old daughter that hates you.
