I loved it! Entertaining and fast paced. If you read mysteries you want to be entertained and this book fits the bill. Recommend the book as a quick read, enjoy.

I don't really know how to feel about this one. I think I was definitely intrigued by all the high ratings, but this just fell so short for me. The concept was great, meeting a random stranger on a train and confessing to them what is happening in your life. But who really does that? I know personally I wouldn't, but that's really not the point. I was hoping for a good can't put down mystery. I had NO problem putting the book down and leaving it down. I understand it was necessary for the author to have so much back details to set up the whole climax of the story, but ugh, at times it was just too much. The book just dragged at times and it was quit obvious to the reader to figure out the catch of the book early on. I think I had a little over half the book to go when I realized how the characters were all connected. I would say the last quarter of the book, was very fast paced and if someone was reading it and didn't pick up on the foreshadowing, would be so surprised by the last twist. It's worth reading, but don't buy into the hype of a fantastic can't put down read.

I immensely enjoyed reading this book! It was full of twists and turns and kept you on your toes. I really love this author and I strongly recommend this book if you like thrillers.

I always think that if an author can make you have strong emotions for the characters - good or bad - that that’s a sign of good writing. However, the characters in this story were hard to like, all of them. They all seemingly had more problems than the average person, so in that respect, it was fairly unbelievable. The development of each of the characters was clever in the sense that just about everybody was interconnected, so that took some good writing skills.
All in all, I would say this was simply an average read.

Lisa Unger always writes entertaining novels. This one was predictable, but I enjoyed watching the author weave the seemingly unrelated threads together.

Lots of hype for this title had me looking forward to an exhilarating read!

Not so much. I found the main character, Selena, totally unreal, but maybe some people are like that? Overall, disappointing cast of people, unbelievable events and actions, but I plodded through to the predictable end.

Complicated and engaging, this book screams “what happens next?”

Lots of unpredictable twists and turns make this an entertaining read for fans of the genre.

Disappointing. Had potential, but ultimately the most predictable "thriller" I have ever read. Would not recommend.
