Everyone has secrets…
Iris and Will have been married for seven years, and life is as close to perfect as it can be. But on the morning Will flies out for a business trip to Florida, Iris's happy world comes to an abrupt halt: another plane headed for Seattle has crashed into a field, killing everyone on board and, according to the airline, Will was one of the passengers.
Grief stricken and confused, Iris is convinced it all must be a huge misunderstanding. Why did Will lie about where he was going? And what else has he lied about? As Iris sets off on a desperate quest to uncover what her husband was keeping from her, the answers she finds shock her to her very core.

Will and Iris Griffith have the perfect marriage and a dream home, and they've just started talking about children on the morning that Will leaves for a business trip in Orlando. When a plane bound for Seattle that same day crashes and kills everyone on board, Iris is stunned to discover Will's name on the passenger manifest, and the conference in Orlando at which he was scheduled to speak turns out not to exist at all. With the help of her brother, Dave, Iris attempts to learn why Will was bound for Seattle, and in the process, she discovers that almost everything she knew about Will is a total fabrication, including his birthplace and his friendships and there's also a large sum of money suddenly missing from the company where he worked. Each piece of the puzzle seems to create more questions than answers, especially once Iris's phone begins receiving anonymous text messages ranging from concerned to outright threatening. This is not a unique premise, and Belle's (The Last Breath) main villain is a little bit cookie-cutter, but numerous skillfully executed twists will force readers to constantly shift their allegiances from character to character, never entirely sure who to trust or what's really going on. A surprising and fast-paced read.
Love, drama, suspense, anger, etc.
You name it, this read had it. I read this in two days of vacation on the beach. It was fast moving, easy to follow, exciting and had great plot twists. The ONLY reasons I didn’t give it five stars is because 1) the ending is open. Obviously intentional but I wanted reconciliation. 2) the hole of a one-way ticket to Seattle and no one questioned that. There could have been a whole new twist there.
All in all great book that I recommend to crime and drama lovers alike.
Kept me guessing
Thoroughly enjoyed my first Kimberly Belle novel. Though I wasn’t sure I liked our heroine initially- she draws you in as you get to know her. The story pulls you in with Iris and you travel her doubts and hopes and grief until the very end. Definitely the most enjoyable and entertaining read I have experienced in a while.
Don’t waste your time with this lame, over emotional, boring and stupid ending book. The main character is just dumb and whiny, so annoying. Sentences like “Pangs of hurt deep inside rip me open again” are about every other sentence in the book. In the audio book, the reader reads all of the males as sounding half drunk, slow and stupid. Sometimes she uses a southern accent, sometimes she doesn’t. I laughed out loud at how dumb the writing was, didn’t even bother to finish it because I knew the ending was stupid. What a waste of money. Horrible reader on the audio book. Can’t believe it was even allowed to be sold.
