Oh my!! What a book. It thrilled from the beginning when secrets of the past and present collided on the 7:45 train, and none realized that their path was getting derailed.

Selena led a good life with Graham and the boys and their nanny, with just a small twist. Graham was sleeping with the nanny. On the 7:45 train, she met Martha, and both confessed secrets about themselves. And life exploded when the nanny went missing, and cops got involved.

My first book by author Lisa Unger held me in thrall from the first page and never let me go. It took me time to reconcile with Selena’s character. I could see shades of myself in her. The first section with multiple POV seemed confusing initially, until I figured out where their lives would entwine.

In such a story where lies were paramount, I was amazed that the author could make me feel empathy for the characters. Life was shown in different shades. And all the characters including a retired cop had their ups and downs.

There was just a tiny nigglette, if you could call it that, the best friend and the would be identity of one of the characters were the same, so that confused me. I thought it was another subplot. But it wasn’t.

Overall, a fun breakfast read where I needed something fast to get my adrenaline flowing.


Rating: 5 out of 5.

Everyone has a secret… Now she knows yours.

Selena Murphy is commuting home from her job in the city when the train stalls out on the tracks. She strikes up a conversation with a beautiful stranger in the next seat, and their connection is fast and easy. The woman introduces herself as Martha and confesses that she’s been stuck in an affair with her boss. Selena, in turn, confesses that she suspects her husband is sleeping with the nanny. When the train arrives at Selena’s station, the two women part ways, presumably never to meet again.

But days later, Selena’s nanny disappears.

Soon Selena finds her once-perfect life upended. As she is pulled into the mystery of the missing nanny, and as the fractures in her marriage grow deeper, Selena begins to wonder, who was Martha really? But she is hardly prepared for what she’ll discover.

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.
