We all have stories we never tell.
Before Owen Michaels disappears, he manages to smuggle a note to his beloved wife of one year: Protect her.
Despite her confusion and fear, Hannah Hall knows exactly to whom the note refers: Owen’s sixteen-year-old daughter, Bailey. Bailey, who lost her mother tragically as a child. Bailey, who wants absolutely nothing to do with her new stepmother.
As Hannah’s increasingly desperate calls to Owen go unanswered; as the FBI arrests Owen’s boss; as a US Marshal and FBI agents arrive at her Sausalito home unannounced, Hannah quickly realizes her husband isn’t who he said he was. And that Bailey just may hold the key to figuring out Owen’s true identity—and why he really disappeared.
Hannah and Bailey set out to discover the truth, together. But as they start putting together the pieces of Owen’s past, they soon realize they are also building a new future. One neither Hannah nor Bailey could have anticipated.
I devoured this beautifully written and HUGELY addictive novel in one sitting- it is absolutely one of those books that pringles like, once you pop, you can’t stop.
Hannah is happily married to Owen, the only slight hiccup being her seeming inability to connect with her stepdaughter. But then Owen goes missing…leaving behind only the words “Protect Her”…
After that you are hook line and sinkered as the author takes you on a twisty path towards the truth. Perfectly set and cleverly layered this is one of those unpredictable stories that doesnt disappoint with its final denouement.
I loved it. Definitely one of the best psychological drama’s you’ll read this year.
