For nearly a year, Beth has been planning for this day. A day some people might call any other Wednesday, but Beth prefers to see it as her new beginning. Beth has given her plan significant thought, because one small slip and her husband will find her. A couple of hundred miles away, Jeffrey returns home from a work trip to find his wife, Sabine, is missing. Wherever she is, she’s taken almost nothing with her. Her abandoned car is the only evidence the police have, and all signs point to foul play. As the police search for leads, the case becomes more and more convoluted. Sabine’s carefully laid plans for her future indicate trouble at home, and a husband who would be better off with her gone. The detective on the case will stop at nothing to find out what happened and bring this missing woman home. Where is Sabine? And who is Beth?
Wow, this book was so good! Kept me guessing for a good portion of the book. Beth’s story is told so well, and I was rooting for her the whole time, hoping she escaped her husband. By the second half of the book, I had a feeling about what was happening, but I still felt so invested in the books and the characters right until the end. I loved the different character point of views, and how we saw the story through all of their eyes. I would have liked to see some of the story told from Sabine’s sister, even just a chapter or two but that was really the only thing I felt was missing. Reading this book has definitely made me want to read more from this author, and I’ll be picking up some more!
