Publisher's Summary

Everyone has secrets.

Iris and Will have been married for seven years, and their marriage is as close to perfect as it can be. But on the morning Will leaves for a business trip to Florida, Iris' happy world comes to an abrupt halt. Another plane headed for Seattle has crashed into a field, killing everyone on board, and, according to the airline, Will was one of the passengers.

Grief stricken and confused, Iris is convinced it all must be a huge misunderstanding. Why did Will lie about where he was going? What is in Seattle? And what else had he lied about?

As Iris sets off on a desperate quest to find out what her husband was keeping from her, the answers she receives will shock her to her very core.

Just a Middling Story --Long & Trite at Times

This book didn't quite captivate me -- perhaps because it just sounded like a whiny, good-wifey person trying to figure out what her husband had done to their marriage throughout most of the story. Of course, she found out -- although the finding out was tedious and somewhat contrived it seemed to me. In the end, the whiny wife got her revenge -- but it wasn't a satisfying ending to the story at all. It just seemed that two evil, immature people found each other and made a mockery of marriage. If I could do it over, I wouldn't spend the time or money.

Last third of the book doesn't hold up

Any additional comments?

Ultimately disappointing. Kind of a romance book mixed with a thriller, or a thriller about a romance. The husband's motives for lying to his wife and not going to Florida felt pretty weak. Then they threw in this handy new love interest who also happens to be a lawyer, (Evan) so he can now help Iris with looking into Will's background, chasing leads, and dealing with the police. He makes Will look bad in comparison, with what meager shading in of his character we do get; plus he's more interested in saving and protecting Iris than almost anything else, despite the fact that he just lost his wife and child in the same plane crash. He even invites her to stay at his home for her safety, saying he can't stand how empty it feels. Idk, i just feel like a lot of the characters motivations seemed manufactured for plot ease. <br/><br/>On the other hand, it's a pretty good thriller, better than your typical dime mystery whodunit, and I liked the twist at the end (the last sentence.) Not a big twist, but kind of an ironic twist; a cynical statement about forgiveness and reprisals, I suppose. Like other reviewers said, it's pretty strong for the first 2/3rds. And it's not as if the last third is weak, exactly, I just felt disappointed by the answers

Mostly engrossing but not a shocker

A good listen. A somewhat lightweight "suspenseful thriller". But I figured out who the culprit was and what was going on pretty early on. I'm not giving myself credit. I'm just saying it's easy to figure out. Mostly enjoyable nonetheless. Although when the narrator went into the other voices it was a bit annoying. Like, oh she's doing the male voice now.i guess that can't totally be avoided but still annoying. I love thrillers, and I will not listen to this book again, like gone girl which I can listen to time and again. Not bad but not great.

Putrid

The main character in this book would have to be severely retarded to make the storyline even slightly plausible. The narrator is hideous (especially her version of a mans voice). I cannot believe I bothered with this giant bowl clogger.

Ridiculous

This is without a doubt the most ridiculous book I've ever read. How it got so many good reviews I'll nvr understand. The narrator is awful also. Do not waste a credit. You've been warned.

Hated it

I don't even really know where to start. Unrealistic plot. Overly whiny and naive main character who also had no growth throughout the book. Horrible narrator who used an awful fake southern accent at time, other times she just spoke normally (for the same character). Introduced characters who implied they'd have more of a part of the book yet disappeared. Frustrating read and waste of a credit.
