Publisher's Summary

A gripping psychological thriller with edge-of-your-seat suspense

Loving husband? Or total stranger? 

When Ella wakes up in a hospital following a hit-and-run incident, she is scared and confused. Close to tears, her eyes fall on a get-well-soon card on the window sill, and the nurse reassures her that her loving husband will be back soon....

But Ella has never been married. 

In fact, she has lived alone her whole adult life; working hard, rarely socializing, quietly harboring a terrible secret from her past.

Fear sweeps through Ella when she instantly recognizes the man who enters the ward. He is not her husband, but she knows that she must do as he says and play the part of dutiful wife. What choice does she have? He was there the night of the fire; he knows her secret, too....

Do you absolutely love twisty and unputdownable psychological thrillers like Girl on the Train, The Wife Between Us, and Gone Girl? Then you will be totally hooked by this jaw-dropping novel about the dangerous secrets behind a perfect marriage.

Would recommend

I really enjoyed this book. Halfway through I started predicting the end, which it turned out I was correct, but I still found this an enjoyable read and one I could not stop listening to!

Leave Already!

Very unrealistic. I hate when the story just gets stupid. She had a million ways out of her situation. I kept rolling my eyes while I listened, not a good sign.

Can't Get Through It

I couldn't get through it. Hated the narrator's voice. And if I heard Ella Bella one more time, I might have thrown up. Hated it.

Draggy start

I couldn’t stand the nurse at the beginning or the long descriptions or the completely nonsensical thoughts of “Ella Bella”. I didn’t make it more than a few chapters before skipping ahead to chapter 50 just to find out the end and had already guessed half of the twist before it was revealed. Not a fan.

Good twist at the end but barely made it there

The first 90% of the book was so annoying - hard to get through. Good surprise at the end but you have to make it there painstakingly!

Don't waste a credit

This is the hardest book to listen to. It was going no where fast, and boring as heck. I made myself listen until chapter 20, then just quit. How this book got any good reviews is a mystery to me.

Left unfulfilled

The story wasn’t that great. Unclimate ending. Not worth the credit I used from amazon prime.

Not Worth Bothering With!

What happened at the end??? 😕🙄 The overall story was OK, but the twist near the last chapter was just plain dumb!!! It made no sense, and it really felt like the author didn’t know where to go with it. As for the book as a whole, it did drag on, like others have said, and “Ella Bella” also got on my nerves after awhile. Narration was average at best, and male voices all sounded the same. Definitely asking for my credit back, but still was a big waste of time!

Needed more

This story dragged on forever it seemed. Once it got into the final parts of the story, it was interesting, but It needed more.
