In this chilling psychological thriller, one woman's dark past becomes another's deadly future.
In 2003, 16-year-old Rebecca Winter disappeared.
She'd been enjoying her teenage summer break: working at a fast-food restaurant, crushing on an older boy, and shoplifting with her best friend. Mysteriously ominous things began to happen - blood in the bed, periods of blackouts, a feeling of being watched - though Bec remained oblivious of what was to come.
Eleven years later she is replaced.
A young woman, desperate after being arrested, claims to be the decade-missing Bec.
Soon the imposter is living Bec's life. Sleeping in her bed. Hugging her mother and father. Learning her best friends' names. Playing with her twin brothers.
But Bec's welcoming family and enthusiastic friends are not quite as they seem. As the imposter dodges the detective investigating her case, she begins to delve into the life of the real Bec Winter - and soon realizes that whoever took Bec is still at large and that she is in imminent danger.

Books are a big part of my life. Happiness is a beautiful evening on the houseboat with a good book :)
I almost gave up on this book but I'm glad I stuck with it. The beginning was interesting and it had me wondering how it could possibly end for Bec (the main character). There were a lot of detours and story lines after that and it seemed a bit muddled. Then the ending came practically out of no where. It had so many twists and turns in the last couple hours (of audiobook) that I didn't see most of them coming. Right up until the end, there were more surprises. Hard to dislike a book that has such an exciting wrap-up!
loved this book. kept me intrigued. definitely psychological suspense without all of the police procedural that I get sick of. more about the characters and the inner workings of their minds
I listened to this book in its entirety one day at work. It was a great listen. I didn't love the very first chapter but it picked up the pace and was a refreshing and new premise. Loved the surprises and twists. And the ending was great.
the entire book is about a girl who gets arrested for shoplifting but who has studied the life of another missing girl who is her doppelganger. the shoplifter convinces the police she is the missing girl and the police release her to the family of the missing girl. after that the story takes several twists and turns to a surprise ending.
This is a thriller that actually thrilled every sense I've ever thought about having! So good, so worth the credit and your listening ears!
this was a decent suspense-thriller, well written, unfolds at a good pace, and you don't have to "get into it" since it is interesting from the very beginning. The minor aspect keeping my rating higher is that the ending came out of nowhere, there were not enough clues or hints throughout the book to make the conclusion sound and in flow with the book.
I couldn't stop listening to this book. And was totally blind sided at the end. Would recommend to anyone that likes suspense novels and trying to piece the puzzle together!
It kept me interested but the ending kind of ruined it all. There was a lot of detail missing in places that needed more. And more detail in places that didn't particularly need it.
Lately, I'm not having much with books claiming to be psychological thrillers, like Girl On The Train and Gone Girl. This story was OK, but certainly not suspenseful! Almost all of the characters that the author created were strange, probably to confuse the listener. So many of the events that happened to Beck were never explained. Definitely loose ends. Also, there was no real point to the author introducing animal cruelty to the story. Thank goodness I purchased this audiobook as the daily deal, but I still intend to return it and hopefully, find a better selection next time.
