Six years have passed since Jake Fisher watched Natalie, the love of his life, marry another man. Six years of hiding a broken heart by throwing himself into his career as a college professor. Six years of keeping his promise to leave Natalie alone, and six years of tortured dreams of her life with her new husband, Todd.
But six years haven’t come close to extinguishing his feelings, and when Jake comes across Todd’s obituary, he can’t keep himself away from the funeral. There he gets the glimpse of Todd’s wife he’s hoping for...but she is not Natalie. Whoever the mourning widow is, she’s been married to Todd for almost two decades, and with that fact, everything Jake thought he knew about the best time of his life - a time he has never gotten over - is turned completely inside out.
As Jake searches for the truth, his picture-perfect memories of Natalie begin to unravel. Mutual friends of the couple either can’t be found or don’t remember Jake. No one has seen Natalie in years. Jake’s search for the woman who broke his heart, who lied to him, soon puts his very life at risk as it dawns on him that the man he has become may be based on a carefully constructed fiction.
Harlan Coben once again delivers a shocking novel that deftly explores the power of past love and the secrets and lies that such love can hide.

The writing was weak - full of terrible dialogue and silly phrases. This sounds as if Cobin's teenage child wrote it for Daddy.
Write it as if real people were talking and get rid of the cliches.
Everything - his performance was quite good
No - it needs a re-write
I'm a Cobin fan. This book had Decent suspends but weak writing.
People that find Harlequin Romances too intellectual.
No Harlan Coben can write a reasonable book but this certainly was not it.
Scott did a reasonable job but the material was soppy.
Removing Jake Fisher would have significantly improved the book.
a different narrator. and less over dramatic writing.
I have read his books before. Depends upon the choices.
wanted to put more let's get on with the story--
No. It's a bit ordinary and predictable.
Yes, I usually enjoy his books more.
No. It ended where it ended.
This book felt a little like an older HC book, Tell No One. Both really enjoyable and the Scott Brick/Harlan Coben combo is always a good listen, but it's a standard HC mystery/thriller. I'm looking forward to the next Myron Bolitar book.
I LOVE to read!! I prefer mysteries but I dabble in every genre!!
I would just say it was time spent. This was neither a bad story nor a good one. The beginning was strong but the end was weak. I literally cringed at some points in the story because it was so absurd. But if you love Lifetime, you'll probably love this book!
This was my first Harlan Coben book so I would give him another shot. I would probably be more interested in his earlier works.
Sure. He didn't put me to sleep so that's good!
Yea, it inspired me to avoid romance books disguised as mysteries.
I like Coben but this book needed some serious editing. Quite repetitive and some of the plot line was obvious.
Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift that's why it's called the present
My first Harlan Coben book. I was not necessarily wowed by the story. I felt the character was very NEEDY almost to the point of unrealistic expectations.
Yes. Since there are so many, including my husband who feel he is great, I'm willing to try another book. Perhaps Six Years was not his best.
The story could have a more interesting turn in the end.
This one didn't hold my interest as much as other Coben books. Scott Brick's narration was also a bit of a snooze fest, but maybe it is because he didn't have much to work with. Might be worth a listen if you're a fan, but it didn't have me on the edge of my seat, which was disappointing.
The pacing is rather odd... it starts to pick up pace and then slow down again at strange times.
Well, that was anticlimactic.
Scott Brick does a good job of giving the main character some personality.
Not really, no.
