I won't judge the author by a single book but while the story was mildly interesting, I felt as if the entire story was being retold every few minutes. Finn's decade-younger girlfriend goes missing after a fight. Her sister turns up and after a while, they're getting married. Signs keep turning up that the girl isn't missing, chaos ensues but in a silly kind of way. I ended up listening to this on 1.75x just to finish it.

Callemarie Was this your first ba Paris book? 1mo
IamIamIam @Callemarie It was and that's why I'd give Paris another shot. This wasn't awful, just clunky and repetitive. Are you a fan? If so, what do you suggest for a redeeming book choice? Lol 1mo
RachelAmphlett I haven‘t read this one, but I enjoyed Behind Closed Doors when I read it earlier this year if that helps 1mo

Callemarie Yeah her other two are crazy but good. This one was the least favorite of mine. Def read one of her others. 1mo
IamIamIam @Callemarie @RachelAmphlett Thanks so much for the suggestions! I'll be checking my library for more audio. Any other good suspense/thriller authors you enjoy? I do like Harlan Coben and Ruth Ware so I'm flexible ad long as there's minimal romantic nonsense, lol 1mo
Callemarie I love me some riley sager, I just finished an arc by Steven Cavanagh called 13 I FREAKING LOVED that one... fiona barton is good, jennifer mcmahon is great-- hers are more like supernatural suspense but still good, good me bad me was a interest and crazy book, jt ellison is great too. I could probably go on and on hahaha 1mo
IamIamIam @Callemarie Great recs!!! Thanks! Feel free to go on!!! Lol, my TBR only has about 750 books on it... let's get to 1000 today!! 😂 I love horror but it's hard to find really good horror that isn't plain gore for shock value. I find thrillers give me the same edginess without the gore. Lol 1mo
RachelAmphlett @IamIamIam I really enjoy Robert Crais‘s novels featuring Elvis Cole and Joe Pike - and I tend to read all of those as they‘re released! Which books do you do that with? 1mo
Callemarie Omg please read penpal by dathan Auerbach and the meadows by London clarke then 1mo
IamIamIam @Callemarie I need to grab a few Auerbach books! Our library doesn't carry them and I've only heard wonderful things about them!!! 1mo
IamIamIam @RachelAmphlett Excellent suggestions, thank you! I'm not familiar with any of those authors! I'm way behind on current releases but Carl Hiaasen is an auto buy and so is Richard Russo. I feel like I plow through mysteries & thrillers so quickly, I like to pick them up second hand. 😁 1mo

I enjoyed the narration and listened to this in about 3 main chunks so I would say I obviously found it compelling. I had 2 possibilities for the end result and my 2nd choice turned out to be correct. I liked Finn because I found him to be complicated and not completely likeable, nor necessarily reliable.

The main character of Finn was very compelling. It is very easy to feel for him because of his missing girlfriend (Layla). The mystery of the emails and the Russian dolls was so intriguing and I couldn‘t wait to figure out who was behind all of the mayhem that was happening because of the chaos. Is Layla really back after all this time? Where has she been? Why now? A wonderful thriller with a great twist in the end.

Audiobook - loved the narration. I enjoyed how the story is slowly developed. A bit of a thriller mystery. I waffled between liking the main character and being a afraid and hating him. It was great!! There‘s a sad lesson to be learned. Perfect ending. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

My husband and I figured out the twist in this book halfway through but it was still very entertaining to listen to on our road trip. It can be a struggle to find something that we are both interested in. The audio version is well done and there are many twists and turns to keep things interesting.

Started off really gripping and I wanted to love it however the ending felt a bit absurd to me and completely ruined my overall feeling of the book. Characters were great, writing was great, basically everything was great except that ending.

I enjoyed this psychological thriller and give it a 4/5 🌟 rating. I was surprised by the ending. I didn‘t see that last twist coming and can understand why it didn‘t seem to impress others based on the reviews I‘ve read. It was a bit weird, but I can appreciate the effort to create something different for a very popular genre.

After 10 years of Layla missing, Finn has moved on and is about to get married when he gets a phone call saying someone has seen Layla. A game starts and Finn can‘t tell if someone is messing with him or if it really is Layla.

This thriller has me hooked from the first page but I figured out the twist pretty early on. I think it could have ended 50 pages earlier because Finn got redundant and all I wanted to know if I was right!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Finn and Layla go for a drive, and at a rest stop Layla disappears. 12 years later, Finn is engaged to Layla‘s sister Ellen...and pieces of his past with Layla start popping up.
Super quick read, fairly predictable, not realistic. But fun for what it was!

A quick read on a rainy day, with my dog cuddled up. I figured out the twist fairly early and the main characters were just blah. Not a fan of this unlikeable protagonist trend in suspense lately. #suspense #dogsoflitsy

I finished a book! I have been dealing with a lot, and haven't been reading. I don't think I have finished a book yet this month - but I did it! I needed a good thriller to get me engaged.This one was interesting. The beginning was kind of strange, but once I got more than a quarter of the way in, I was hooked!The characters are so interesting.I did guess the twist before it was revealed, but there were enough things that I didn't quite figure out

GingerAntics I had the same thought. 9mo

This was an interesting, unexpected book. I did have a hunch before it was revealed what was going on but still enjoyed the journey. No happy ending here,but a realistic ending to a slightly unrealistic story.

Finn and Layla are on the way home from a skiing vacation when Finn stops to go to the toilet. He leaves Layla in the car sleeping. When he comes out, Layla is gone or at least this is what Finn tells police. Twelve years later Finn is going to marry Ellen, Layla‘s sister when it all goes wrong. I was baffled until the very end. My theories were all going in the wrong direction. I loved this book. B. A. Paris is an amazing storyteller.

ShelleyBooksie I concur! The stories are link chips - I just can't stop! 9mo

The baddie in this book has to be the worst, most poorly written villain I‘ve read for a long time. Maybe it‘s just because I had it figured out around halfway through, but I was super annoyed with both the villain and the ‘victim‘ for most of the book. Way too predictable. 😬

I‘m a terrible skeptic when it comes to thrillers/mysteries. This one definitely pushed the plausibility a little too far for me. The beginning premise caught my attention at first and the alternating narratives make it pass quickly but once I got busy I didn‘t feel particularly motivated to pick it back up.
