Publisher's Summary

A woman disappears and frames her husband for her murder - but she soon learns the past isn’t so easily left behind.

Jace and Tessa appear to be a young couple in love with nothing to hide. But looks can be deceiving.

When Jace Montgomery comes home late from entertaining clients, he discovers that his wife, Tessa, is missing. There’s broken glass at the back door. Clumps of her hair. Blood. The cops in their small New Jersey town have him pegged as a suspect, especially after he explodes at a reporter during a press conference. Jace maintains his innocence despite the mounting evidence against him, but when a coworker he’s accused of having an affair with also disappears and a search warrant turns up an illegal gun in Jace’s home, all signs point to him as the culprit. What is he really hiding?

Meanwhile, Tessa finally feels safe, having set up her husband to take the fall for her disappearance - and someone close to him is helping her put him away. Breaking her lifelong pattern of bad men is only one hurdle she has to overcome. The other is outrunning her secret past while trying to stay alive, especially when those in her new life aren’t who they appear to be.

Jace’s lies don’t add up, and the authorities are closing in. Will Tessa’s old life catch up to her and drag her back to a life of abuse before justice is served?

Finding Tessa is a smart domestic thriller where nothing can be taken at face value, where every twist reveals a deadlier secret than the one before. Fans of Gillian Flynn, Samantha Downing, and incisive, fresh psychological suspense won’t want to miss it.

Do not recommend- graphic abuse situations

Warning: contains graphic descriptions of abuse. Nothing in the book description even hinted at the scope of this. Drug abuse, physical abuse, sexual abuse situations.

Messy and uneven

The male narrator did a nice job, but the female narrator was annoying. The story timeline and presentation was a bit confusing, it hopped around from past to present. I personally don't care for that format but it seems to be the trend lately.

The story was a bit messy and all over the place. Things just didn't make sense and weren't believable. There were random plot lines started and abandoned, not red herrings, but plot holes.

Overall, this is not a memorable or compelling story and I would not recommend using a credit on it.

Good story but fell flat

Enjoyed but dragged in the middle. Lost its energy. I think it would have benefited from another edit. It was also very sexist I thought. Women's characters were flat, not well thought out, unrealistic.
