Publisher Description

For seven years I believed my husband was dead – until the note arrived this morning… 

The day her husband Tom disappeared, Rachel’s life fell apart. Childhood sweethearts with two young children, they’d done everything together. And then, suddenly, Tom was gone. Without a word, without a note, without a single sign of where he might be, leaving Rachel to survive alone. 

Now, nearly seven years later, Rachel has come to terms with life as a single mother, caring for their children who still secretly long for their father’s miraculous return. 

But in his absence, Tom’s hidden life started to emerge, and Rachel has discovered things a wife should never have to. A secret life that betrayed everything Rachel thought she knew. Not knowing where he’d gone was no longer the main worry keeping her awake at night – it seemed much more likely he’d been silenced. Forever. 


Until today, when – with just one month until Tom is to be declared legally dead – Rachel receives a note in handwriting she recognises with dread: 

My darling, I’ve missed you so much. Give me a chance to explain. I’m coming home.

The husband she’d lost is alive. 

And so are all his secrets…

A totally addictive and suspenseful thriller that will have you reading late into the night, perfect for fans of Shari Lapena, T.M. Logan and Lisa Jewell.

My Review:
I want to start off by saying that I really love this author and her books. I’ve read most of her books so far and have loved them all. In my opinion this book was good but not her best. My biggest complaint would have been that I saw that ending coming from a mile away. That is the main reason why I knocked my rating down. I would have also liked a few more twists that were shocking. Put all of this aside and I thought this book was pretty good overall. I read this one very quickly and loved the fact that everyone was a suspect. I also loved that the ending came together nicely was wrapped up in a tight bow. There was no cliffhangers or questions that I had that were unanswered. I will definitely be reading more of this author in the future.

In conclusion, the plot, the characters and all the twists in this book made this book an enjoyable read. I would definitely recommend it and happily give it 4 Hearts❤️❤️❤️❤️
