    1 star if it weren’t for the ending

    Thank you29758021 to the publisher and NetGalley for an advance copy of this book in return for an honest review. This book is billed as a chilling, twisty, compulsive thriller. Unfortunately, it missed the mark for me. It is chilling at times, but the twists don’t come until you have read at least three-quarters of the book, and the story is dragged out so far that there is no compulsion to keep reading. The story is good, and there is a twist at the end, but it would have been much better as a novella. I kept turning the pages, but quickly as I skimmed through the story, as I couldn’t take another five or six pages of the main character, Hannah, in her drunken state moaning about her fate. Hannah and her boyfriend, Matt, live together for four years and one day she comes home to find him gone. Not just gone, but erased. All his things are gone, and her belongings are back in their place, as it was when he moved in. In addition, he is erased from Facebook, Instagram and every other social media. His phone number, call history and e-mails are erased. She begins searching for him in the likely places, but he has quit his job and his mother has moved. Then strange things begin happening. Someone is watching Hannah, entering her home when she is at work, sending message she thinks are from Matt. It’s a great plot line, and there is a twist at the end. However, the repetition of Hannah’s inability to cope, turning to drink, being hungover, attempting to work, coming home to an empty house, etc. is tedious and boring. I couldn’t quite work up any sympathy for her either (that sounds so terrible), as Hannah wasn’t a nice person to begin with. While Matt’s disappearance is certainly intriguing, you just know it has something to do with Hannah. I would have given it 1 star if it weren’t for the ending. Still, I don’t think I’d recommend anyone read it just for that.

    Didn't work for me

    This book and me did not get along. I was so excited to read this novel because the story sounded exactly like the kind of book that I enjoy. I thought it started out okay but then I found myself wanting to put it down. I would set this book aside and read another book and go back to it and quickly find that I was bored again. I actually ended up reading a couple of other books in the middle of this one which is something that I rarely do. I considered not finishing this book but I pushed myself to finish it instead. After finishing the book, I do wish that I had just stopped as soon as I realized that it wasn't working for me. Hannah comes home from work to find her boyfriend, Matt, gone from their home. Matt has taken absolutely everything that he had in their home. It is like Matt never lived there. Photos are gone. He even erased all of the phone records, texts, and emails. Hannah is stunned and has no idea where Matt has gone or why he left. She can't get his loss out of her mind and starts working to figure out where he has gone. After the initial shock of Matt's leaving, there didn't seem to be a whole lot going on in this book. Hannah does not deal with his leaving well at all and her spiral downward is detailed in the story but it seemed to me that the story needed something to keep things moving forward. I found that I spent most of the book rather bored. The story does have a big twist and the last quarter of the book does pick up the pace. I would imagine that most people will really appreciate this giant twist but by the time it was revealed, I had really lost any investment in the story that I had ever had. I did find that the last section of the book did seem to move faster and was more entertaining. I think that this is a book that some readers will love but it will not work well for others. Unfortunately, I was in the later group. I wouldn't discourage anyone from reading it that really thinks that they would enjoy it based on the description but I won't be encouraging readers to pick it up either. I received an advance reader edition of this book from Berkley Publishing Group via NetGalley.
