The day Aubrey Hamilton's husband is declared dead by the state of Tennessee should bring closure so she can move on with her life. But Aubrey doesn't want to move on. She just wants Josh back. It's been five years since he disappeared, since their blissfully happy marriage - they were happy, weren't they? - screeched to a halt and Aubrey became the prime suspect in his disappearance. Five years of emptiness, solitude, loneliness, questions. Why didn't Josh show up at his friend's bachelor party? Who anonymously sent Aubrey her favorite cocktail at the bar where Josh stood her up? Was he murdered? Did he run away? And now, all this time later, who is the mysterious and strangely familiar figure suddenly haunting her new life?
As her heroine faces the possibility that everything she thinks she knows about herself, her marriage, and her husband is a lie, New York Times best-selling author J.T. Ellison expertly peels back the layers of a complex woman who is hiding dark secrets beneath her unassuming exterior. In a masterful thriller for listeners who love Gillian Flynn, Liane Moriarty, and Paula Hawkins, Ellison pulls you into a you'll-never-guess merry-go-round of danger and deception. Round and round and round it goes, where it stops...no one knows.

Good but the ending...I would of really enjoyed knowing more and why she did what she did. I do not want to give away the ending but it sure leaves a lot open for question as to why!!!!!
Almost reads like a teenage novel
This is just not a very good book. It is waaaay too long, the writing is extremely unsophisticated, the sex scenes are embarrassingly gasping and over-dramatic. It's like chick lit meets mystery novel, and does not come off well. Add to that, the narration is bad and there just is nothing to recommend it.
Book had some major twists
The book wasn't my favorite, but it was pretty good.
