Synopsis from Goodreads: A young British couple are driving through France on holiday when they stop for gas. He runs in to pay, she stays in the car. When he returns her car door has been left open, but she's not inside. No one ever sees her again. Ten years later he's engaged to be married; he's happy, and his past is only a tiny part his life now. Until he comes home from work and finds his new wife-to-be is sitting on their sofa. She's turning something over in her fingers, holding it up to the light. Something that would have no worth to anyone else, something only he and she would know about because his wife is the sister of his missing first love. As more and more questions are raised, their marriage becomes strained. Has his first love somehow come back to him after all this time? Or is the person who took her playing games with his mind?

My Review: I loved the story but the end of the book left me with a bitter taste in my mouth. It was an interesting twist but I just couldn’t believe it. I don’t want to give anything away so I won’t say why but it bugged me. However I devoured the book and stayed up far past my bedtime trying to figure out what was going on! The book flowed nicely though it jumped around between the past and present as well as through multiple viewpoints. The book was also just on the edge of creepy and really made me think scary thoughts. I had plenty of guesses about what was happening though and none of them were correct. If you love a good domestic thriller check this one out!

*I received this book from Netgalley and St. Martins Press in exchange for an honest review*
