Oooh what can I say about the deliciousness that coursed through me when I read this story? Hooked to it I was from beginning to end. The words, the plot, and the wicked mind of author Jackie Kabler, all three made the best combination to rock my world and keep me cosseted in it too. The author was quite nimble in keeping me on tenderhooks throughout the story. I never would have guessed the different plot lines. (My guesses were a bit sci-fi, and they were all wrong.)

Husband Danny disappeared, wife Gemma was worried. She went to cops and tables turned when certain evidence forced the cops to charge her as the prime suspect in his ?disappearance ?murder.

Having read the earlier book by this author, I was most excited to get my newly sanitized hands on this beauty. The story pulled me in from the get-go, where my mind raged with brilliant theories. The author managed to shoot them all down with every chapter. Emotions coursed through me when the cops wore their blinkers, but that gave me a pause too. Was that possible? How exciting!! A few of my thoughts.

The story reached a zenith where the cup of woes overturned. The plot raced through like the galloping horses, pulling me with it. I barely held on. There were a few unbelievable scenes, but that made the book more exciting. Go figure!

After the far-fetched, never could have thought in my entire life, unbelievable world crisis, nothing in this book remained within the realms of far-fetchedness. My mind said it could be possible, and there it was. A big 5 star for transporting me to a different world for a couple of hours.

I heard parts of the story via the audiobook, and the narrator had done a great job with it. I am a slow listener, but with this I could hear half the book between 1-3 am.

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

The perfect couple…or the perfect lie?

A year and a half ago, Gemma met the love of her life, Danny. Since then, their relationship has been like something out of a dream. But one Friday evening, Gemma returns home to find Danny is nowhere to be seen.

After two days with no word from her husband, Gemma turns to the police. She is horrified with what she discovers – a serial killer is on the loose in Bristol. When she sees the photos of the victims she is even more stunned…the victims all look just like Danny.

But, the detectives aren’t convinced by Gemma’s story. Why has no one apart from Gemma seen or heard from Danny in weeks? Why is there barely a trace of him in their flat? Is she telling them the truth, or are there more secrets and lies in this marriage than meets the eye?

  1. This did have a crazy plot and that is why I loved it too. My mind went between agreeing with Gemma’s conclusions and thinking I was reading an unreliable narrator but I never expected the actual conclusion. Great review, Shalini!

  2. This is another author I have not read, but it sure sounds like I should read one. Awesome review, it sounds like you really enjoyed it.

    1. I read the last book of hers, so I think she is quite a good author. Quite far fetched in the end, but I don’t mind. It distracted me
