Publisher's Summary

Hello? Police? My husband and our children...they’re gone.

When Mel arrives at the holiday cottage in the Lake District, she expects to find the heating on and her husband, Luke, and the two children waiting for her. Maybe a bottle of wine open....

Instead, there is just a note on the side, saying they’ve gone out for a walk. But they aren’t back several hours later, and Mel knows something is wrong. Really wrong. When a search doesn’t find them, she has to confess to the police that her marriage isn’t all that it seems. Even if that risks her own secrets being revealed....

Turned me off, too much abuse.

How could this author think a fictional book filled with child abuse, animal abuse, a marriage filled with emotional, horrible physical abuse involving children and a dog even adults is entertainment????? I was screaming " GROW A SET!" regarding the male main character. I wouldn't recommend but I did end up finishing. Just did not care for this one by R.H.

Hard to listen to as a mother

Definitely not what I was expecting. I had to pause during parts of the book and take a breath. As a mother it was hard to listen. The book was overall good and ended appropriately but I could have went without the abuse. I also spent a majority of the book hating the father who is weak and a sorry excuse for a father who cannot protect his children. Utterly disgusting!

Oh the twists

Did this go in a completely different direction than I thought it would. I really enjoyed this listen a lot. I even thought I had it all figured out. It was nothing what I thought. I recommend this to anyone that wants to hear a great story.

What a page turner!!

This book is action packed with twists and turns from start to finish - twists I never saw coming. The book contains some domestic violence scenes that may be difficult to read. Overall, an interesting story that kept me guessing and wanting to know what was going to happen next.

Interesting but predictable

not a bad listen but I felt there could have been more. The story seemed like it was condensed and glazed over areas that could have added so much more to the story.

Not my cup of tea

Actual rating 2.5 🌟. The blurb for this book really pulled me in and I went into this audio book excited and feeling like it was going to be a gripping listen. However, the tone of voice of the narrator was whiney and I had to turn the speed up several notches just to add a bit of pace to the book.
The story itself is ok. Could have been alot better and put across in a more exciting and gripping way but I did listen from start to finish. Not a book I will have about and recommend but for £2.99 on Whisper Sync through Kindle, it was ok.

Really good

So clever throughout and my first for this author. Bereaved father meets femme fatale, marries in haste and lives a nightmare. Has he resorted to killing himself and his family in order to escape? They have disappeared and there are no clues whilst his wife appears distraught and desperate. The novel takes us back into the past then reverts to the present and the truth of their marriage is gradually revealed - but just where are they??? Twists and turns, violent and disturbing but thoroughly enjoyable.

Started Well

I had high hopes but for me this book didn't deliver. I didn't feel invested in any of the characters so couldn't bring myself to care much where they'd gone, but again, that's probably just me.

Good but needed editing down

There were one or two twists in this book, but 85% of the book would be better described as drama as opposed to thriller. At least 1/3 of the story could have been edited out.

slow start, implausible in places but trots along

Bit of a slow start, implausible in places, but once story gets going, gets bit more interesting. Good characterization of the lead female in the story (dont want to give anything away), cleverly drawn, and very believable. Not brilliant but entertaining enough in the background

Great story line.

Wow! I really enjoyed this book. I hadn’t read any of Rona’s books before. This will certainly not be the last! I listened to this in one day while cleaning my house & doing the weekly washing. It certainly helped me through such tedious jobs.
