Listened as an audiobook, really enjoyed it. The character development throughout made my heart happy and it was an interesting storyline. :)

This was a good yarn. It was more of a mystery than a thriller. I didn't find it scary or suspenseful except a little at the end, but I liked the story and the characters. It was almost heartwarming in parts.

There are parts I wish didn‘t exist, parts I can‘t look away from now. In one way or another, this is the deal we all sign when we love someone. For better or worse. It‘s the deal we have to sign again and again to keep that love. We don‘t turn away from the parts of someone we don‘t want to see. However quickly or long it takes to see them. We accept them if we are strong enough. Or we accept them enough to not let the bad parts become the story.

This was Top Choice of Mysteries per Goodreads for 2021 and I‘m throughly underwhelmed. Way too simplistic of a plot for a mystery (in my opinion). That being said, the writing was good and kept me listening. Just wish the plot was twister. Not my jam, per say. The final third was a big misfire - but until then I was pretty on board.

4¾⭐
Wow, the reviews for this are all over the place…from one to five stars, and everything in between. For me, this story was engaging throughout and when I wasn‘t listening to it, I wanted to be. The story was interesting and not the least bit predictable, it may have been a tad unrealistic at times…but that wasn‘t really an issue for me.

12-30-21: My 131st finished book of 2021! Hannah, a woodturner, and Owen, her husband of less than 2 years, happily live in Sausalito with Owen‘s 16 year old daughter, Bailey, who isn‘t very fond of Hannah. When Owen‘s tech company boss gets indicted for fraud, Owen disappears, leaving Hannah to take care of Bailey and figure out what Owen has been hiding. It kept me guessing. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 👍🏼📖#️⃣1️⃣3️⃣1️⃣

This was a very entertaining mystery/suspense/family drama. A husband goes missing, the wife is left with a cranky teenage step daughter. Some delightful twists and turns. Great audiobook also. 4⭐️

This was good, w a few moments of annoyance. The lead was maddeningly perfect. This was supposed to be (I think) a run of the mill common person tries to solve a mystery, but this lady could have her own series. She‘s a joiner and genius designer (ok, HOT), great with teenagers and psychopaths (I wanted to punch everyone and she was analyzing them like a career psychologist, w the upmost calm), and the most loving perfect wife to boot. Continues⬇️

Nalbuque Anyways, it was a cool story, that made me want to listen in one go. It was the right length for that as well. I wasn‘t crazy abt the ending but I guess it was cute, in a way. Go for it! 1mo

This was marketed as a thriller which it is definitely not. It‘s a good mystery, especially if you‘ve ever tried to parent a teenaged daughter. She really captured the angst and apathy of a teenaged girl. I enjoyed this a lot and the audiobook narration was excellent. We listened to it in one day on a long road trip and it kept us guessing and engaged the whole day.

The thing that made me disappointed: suspense. This was a thriller but it didn't feel like it because there wasn't suspense. Thriller without suspense?? Not a thriller for me. I was so disappointed. And I hated the ending.

This book was boring, but I think I might have liked this more without waiting for reading a captivating thriller.

This was book 8 during #novelnovember

This is not one to pick up if you want a pulse-pounding thriller. This is a really good mystery that starts slowly, building and layering as you keep reading. I never would have guessed the direction the story ended up taking and I absolutely loved the way it ended. The relationship between Hannah and her stepdaughter Bailey was complicated and wonderful and, for me, they were the driving force of the book.

I'm so confused. What am I missing about the rave reviews on this book? I felt like I was reading the same chapter for the whole book. I didn't really care about the characters, just felt disconnected. Quick read though. The only reason I finished it was because it was a short, easy read. But nothing really to chew on or make me a better human in this book. Just your typical... easy reader thriller story... if you call it thrilling.

fredthemoose Beautiful setting!! 2mo

This was a shockingly easy read - finished in just over a day. Hannah's husband, Owen, mysterious disappears, leaving a note only saying "Protect Her", in regards to her 16 year old stepdaughter. There were a few parts I kinda skimmed over but it was a pretty interesting book. Ending definitely got me in the feels a little.

So, so good. An intimate and exciting thriller and an unexpected joy to have much of it set where I live in Austin Texas. Love that! Great characters, deeply layered and fantastic writing that kept moving the plot forward. Went to bed thinking about it, woke up thinking about it. #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks

I had a sleepless night last night and managed to finish this book; I don‘t know if I was awake so I read the book or if I wanted to read the book so I didn‘t sleep but either way the story was interesting and I loved Hannah and Bailey together.

No real surprises for me. Nice enough for a light thriller. Fast paced and fun but ultimately unmemorable.

Grabbed this one because reviews all said it has twists and turns, is gripping, etc. Not so much. It felt underwhelming. The only reason I finished it was because it‘s a breeze to get through. I didn‘t find myself caring much.

Hannah has been married with Owen almost for 2 years and live with him and Bailey, Owen‘s 16 y/o daughter. One morning she received an envelope from her husband indicating “protect her”. Owen then disappears. At the same time, the corporation where Owen‘s work is under FBI investigation. During Hannah‘s searching for answers she discovered her husband is not who she thought he was. Mystery and suspense. There were parts I enjoyed 3.6⭐️

This month‘s book club pick was a popular book and I expected more. It was an easy read but not a lot of depth with the characters. We didn‘t get enough for their motives and the choices they made. Maybe tomorrow‘s discussion will help but for now this is just a nice pool/beach book.

Hannah‘s husband disappears leaving her a note that says “Protect her.” Hannah concludes that the “her” is her teenage stepdaughter, Bailey. Hannah and Bailey team up to search for the missing man and to uncover his secrets. I enjoyed the characters and the story, although I was a bit disappointed in the reveal. The plot moves along at a good pace, and I happily painted my son‘s room while listening. A good listening experience!

I really wanted to like this book better, especially since it‘s a Reese pick and she tends to pick really good book club books. But I just didn‘t.

Maybe I was hoping for too much, since I know I‘ll discuss this with my own book club. But there just doesn‘t seem like there will be much to talk about. It‘s kinda just a light family mystery 🤷🏼‍♀️

A delightfully implausible page turning thriller. Perfect for a summer day off on the deck. (My one beef is that the author said coder when she meant programmer too often…)
