Publisher's Summary

I don't know where you are...I don't know what I've done....

Teenager Abigail Ryder is devastated when she gets home from school to find her family gone. Nothing makes sense. Things are missing from the house and her stepsisters' room is completely empty. But the police think she's trouble, and when grandmother Eleanor tells her to forget them all and move on, there's no choice other than face the future - alone.

Fourteen years on, Abi and Adam are a happy couple on the verge of parenthood. But when the past comes back to haunt Abi, the only way forward is to go back and uncover the truth - and reveal the dreadful secrets a mother has been hiding all these years.

Wow!

This is an emotional roller-coaster. Trigger warning for anyone plagued with a tumultuous mother - daughter relationship, but excellent none the less.

Predictable and boring

I am a huge fan of psychological thrillers, but this one, please save ur money. There's maybe one or 2 unexpectedthings, the rest were predictable, the narrarator wasn't great, and it didn't hold my attention. I even fast forwarded where there was too much background given, or conversations that went on forever. Save ur money and get "The wife between us" That's a great book!!!!

I just wanted it to end

I liked the performance but this story was a bit boring with zero payoff. It's as if the author had this idea for a premise but then forgot to develop it. Elena was the only interesting character yet she didn't feel real at all. Katherine was ridiculous and I'm a little annoyed that her condition wasn't researched further so that it could feel like it actually belonged in the story and wasn't just thrown in there for added spice. So annoying when authors just touch on important issues like that without really doing the work. The whole thing was seriously not good or satisfying in any way. So glad I got the audiobook. The performance was the only good thing about it.

What a fantastic read!

This was a very different book from my usual mystery’s and thrillers but so very capturing and entertaining from the very beginning. A definite must read.

So glad I stayed with it !

Not a good beginning, and characters I could not relate to at all. Even the narration made me wonder at times if the reader was that bad or if the character was just that annoying . But I'm so glad I stayed with it! The story and the characters developed into a very interesting, original, and well read book

I really like this book

The storyline was riveting. It’s not an off the hook, meaning I caught your attention immediately. I don’t want to spoil your reading so I won’t go into too much detail so I will just say it was a great book.

it was interesting.

the narrator struggled with the male voices, and the book was a little convoluted at times. But it was well worth the read, I enjoyed it. I hope you will too!

interesting twists and turns

This was a captivating story, there were many instances where I couldn't see where the story was heading but everything always ended up being cohesive. I was expecting a more dramatic explanation of events because as the story unfolded I had a hard time seeing such circumstances happening in real life. But if you can get past that, it's a decent book overall.

Excellent!

It starts off slow, but give it a chance. It has a twisty story line that will hold your interest in, and the narration is perfect.
