Publisher's Summary

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.

This book is dreadful! Hard to believe that Harlan Coben could have turned out such drivel. Or that the publisher would except this manuscript for publication. Like one of the previous commentators, I soldiered on only for the opportunity to write this brief note. Harlan Coben would now qualify as 25th runner-up in the James Patterson look-alike contest. All he has to do is declare in the name of the person who ghosted this bookfor him.

Confusing

Overall I liked the ending of the story but it was quite confusing at some points. It had a few twists here and there though and overall it wasn't half bad. The performer definitely sounds like the guy from Dexter though.

Audio Page Turner

Have you ever listened to a story while driving and had to get to a good stopping place before you can get out the car having reached you destination. First, the narrator was excellent. Second, but none-the-less more important was the story line. There was mystery, intrigue, romance, comedy and suspense, but the story was easy to follow. It was somewhat predictable, but that did no take away from story or characters.

GAG

If I wanted a romance novel I would have downloaded a Nora Roberts or Danielle Steele book. This book had promise in the beginning, but became a predictable gag-inducing romance novel at the end. Don't waste the credit.

Grabs you!!

At first I was thinking..... ehhhh. The more I listened the deeper I was tangled. Into a mystery so complex that I did not want to stop. Terrific ending...yet so unanticipated. Scott Brick does the story beautiful justice. Another winner!!!!
