Publisher's Summary

Charley Willis was 13 years old when her parents were killed in their family home and she was found hiding in a cupboard upstairs.

Fifteen years later, Charley is marrying Seth Chambers. It should be the happiest day of their lives, a chance for Charley to put her past behind her, but just hours after the ceremony, she is missing.

No one saw her leave. No one knows where she is.

One thing is for certain…Seth is about to discover he doesn’t really know the woman he just married. And his nightmare is only just beginning. 

A totally gripping psychological thriller that will keep you listening until the very last jaw-dropping twist.

Great story

Great plot. Great characters. No major surprising twists in my opinion, but still held my attention. I loved it and thought it was well written.

Soap opera? NOT a psychological thriller!

I'll be honest, I just couldn't finish this. This reads more like a soap opera, annoyingly so. Moves too slow.
The narration was just plain weird. I usually love Brittish narration of audiobooks, but this was just too much syrup and drivel...does anyone really talk like this in real life? Think Mrs. Doubt fire, yeah, that strange.

Good, but no more than that

The book was good but disappointing. The premise was good but much of the book moved too slowly and was far from the “gripping” mentioned in the subtitle, though it definitely held my interest. The second half moves faster and the last 20-30% has more twists etc. The narration was good overall, but I found it ranged from great to good. Particularly with the portrayal of Charley. At times it was really good, but other times I found the little girl voice she used to be irritating, especially when she sounded like whispering in a tiny breathy kind of voice.

Completely Engaging

I was completely engaged in this book. I could hardly put it down. I wanted more. The story was captivating. If you want a story that has suspense, romance, and hard to predict this is the book for you.
