    Thoroughly enjoyed

    This is a book I’ll remember for a long time yet. Why? Because it was so exciting! I loved it. This author surely knows what a reader wants when it comes to psychological thrillers, drama, family, twists that the reader bends around and finds there’s a sting in its tail where the plot really does thicken. Imagine arriving in The Lake District where you were joining your husband and two children. Only to find the place empty. That’s it there.....I’m saying nothing more. At the beginning Mel was telling the story, the Police were called of course along with Rescue as she thought her family may have gone on a short hike. Not unusual, it’s something they enjoyed . Father and children. The plot thickens like black treacle wherever you step in this story you are stuck to the pages. I’m kidding you not. I just loved how this book was laid out. Going back over the lead up was superb, I enjoyed being lead. I do believe this author has another book, so I’m definitely buying it. I love how she writes, how she kept me guessing and boy oh boy, that ending.

    Psychological Thriller That Doesn't Leave Easy

    This is a psychological thriller that hooks you immediately. It starts with Luke's POV and then switches to Mel's. First, she seems hopeful, excited even, then as the evening wears on emotional and nervous over the lapse of time in which she'd fully expected her hubby and two children back to the holiday cottage they'd rented for a getaway and a chance to "sort" things out. But is she really a reliable narrator? The book is divided in parts (there are always two sides to the story--right?), and it isn't until you're into the book that you really begin to get a glimmer that this may be a whole other scenario than that originally posed of a missing man and his kids. Off on a hike. Lost? In addition, to the change of narrators are jumps in time. Yes, you can buy that as it is a way to understand how we got to this point. And it isn't pretty. It's heart-wrenching. Luke is working on putting his life back together and the two kids are his. Mel is pushing her biological clock and Luke. Lies, misdirection, twists, changes of POV and time stamp. Little by little more secrets come out. Support characters offer some hope, and most are sympathetic, engaging, well-developed. Luke's parents are aging and their health is not the best. His mother, always a strong woman, is battling a debilitating disease. Cousin Ted just adds stress and tension. The pacing of the well-plotted narrative is swift. No commercial breaks. It's a race to the conclusion, and it's beginning to look like everything will work out. And then, WHAM! The final twist. Did NOT see that one coming! Loved the book; opened up a new premise for me (and an argument as well), although several elements pushed some disbelief. I had a little problem with Luke's mother's attitude at the end. There were some edit misses, but really this is such a fast and furious read you tend to barrel right over those. I received this ebook download from the publisher and NetGalley. Totally appreciated the opportunity to read and review and can recommend for any reader looking for something off-track, fast, and thought-provoking. This is one that will resonate after the last page. 4.5/5

    Good plot

    A few gaps but entising to the end. Dragged a bit in the middle. Liked the ending.

    Not my cup of tea

    not for me personally. It wasn't until about chapter 17 that I really understood what direction the author was going, and it didn't get much better. Positive: made me love my kids and husband more, lol!
