Me and Will. Will and Me. A perfect match. He said he would always be there for me, but it’s been a year since he drained his coffee, walked out the front door and vanished. Did he leave me? Or did something terrible happen? I’m scared someone finally found out about what happened on the drive home that night… I lie awake at night trawling the internet for rental properties, desperate for an escape. Until I see my husband’s gorgeous face smiling back at me from a photograph on the fireplace in someone else’s home, and something inside of me snaps. At the house, I find no trace of him and the woman who lives there has no idea who I am. But I’m certain she’s hiding something behind the locked door upstairs. I know that if I want answers, I have to stay. You might think that what’s inside that room is the answer to all my questions and the end of all my pain. But it’s only the beginning…
I’m really conflicted about this book and I’ve spent the day trying to decide how to write this review. The truth is, I didn’t connect with it at all. I feel really bad saying that though, because the story was so good and I’ve loved all of Hayes’ other books that I’ve read. I think the reason I felt no connection to it had a lot to do with the fact I was so preoccupied all of last week. The times I normally read I spent taking power naps so I could be awake when more votes came in. When I was reading I had CNN on in the background so I had one eye on that. So the reason I probably felt it was too slow and not exciting was because I wasn’t investing enough of my attention in it. That’s why I feel like my review mightn’t be the best indicator of how good this book is. In the last 30-35% I got really into the story and I started to care what happened which makes me think I would have enjoyed it more had I read it at a different time. So, what I will say is that the book has a great story to it and the ending was really good. It is a good thriller and I am going to recommend it!
