Review

This book was an interesting and unexpected thriller.

The story begins with a journal entry from Stephanie Henderson talking about her newborn daughter and secrets she has been keeping. Then we are launched into Jess’s perspective as she learns that her sister and, Stephanie, and her niece are missing. Jess quickly teams up with Adam, Stephanie’s husband, to piece together Stephanie’s last movements to try and determine what may have happened to her.

Stephanie is not the type of woman to just walk away from her life, especially with her newborn in tow, so both her family and the police are at a loss. We get shifting perspectives between Jess and Adam and also back to Stephanie’s journal and we find out that there is more going on than what’s on the surface.

I won’t spoil anything, but this book took a turn that I haven’t seen in other thrillers. I think it takes on some important issues while still maintaining that edge-of-your-seat-suspense feeling.

My only issue with this book were the unnecessary details/scenes that really had no bearing on the story. I found myself skimming a bit more than I normally would, but this did not detract from the overall story for me.

Thank you so much to NetGalley and RedDoor Books for the opportunity to read and review this book!

Synopsis:

I’m not the wife you think I am

Just weeks after giving birth, new mum Stephanie Henderson and her baby girl disappear.

With husband Adam in despair, and the police investigation stalled, it’s up to her sister Jess to find them. But when Adam starts to behave suspiciously, Jess starts to question what really happened.

Following news of a tragic accident, she suspects the worst and, in turmoil, goes in search of answers. But Jess isn t prepared for what she uncovers . . . or for what happens next.

This is a twisted psychological thriller that will make you question what is real, and whether you really can trust those you love.
