‘The new GIRL ON THE TRAIN’ Observer

She was his.
She was perfect.
And then, she was gone.

If you liked My Lovely Wife, you’ll love this.

Alice has always been haunted by the women from her husband’s past. As a politician and now a TV personality, George Bell’s reputation as a ladies’ man precedes him. But when Alice falls pregnant, her unease becomes an obsession.

And there’s one ex in particular she can’t get out of her head, a beautiful student who went missing before they finished university: Ruth.

When Alice thinks she see Ruth on a train, she can’t shake the feeling there’s more to the disappearance than George has told her. But does she really want to know what her husband has been up to behind her back all these years?

Another crime/mystery story

This was a crime/mystery story. The ending was unexpected and the book ended abruptly. There are some darker themes in this book but it was realistic and the way the main characters unfold the mystery is plausible. I felt the ending was wrapped up on a nice bow but too short. It would have been nice to have a prologue three months or one year later. Overall I did like the book and all of the main characters.
