This is the second book by B.A. Paris whose debut was "Behind Closed Doors". I have to say that book was good but it lost my attention at points. But the ending was well worth it.
This new book will have you from the first page. Imagine you have the perfect life and one night driving past a broken down vehicle causes you to start to lose your memory. Like how to work a microwave or dishwasher, items arriving you never ordered but you did.
This book will keep you till the end and the ending won't let you down.
I have been on such a dry spell, must have started 10 books that had high ratings but were not that good. THIS IS THE BEST BOOK OF 2017 HANDS DOWN.

Lived It!

If you liked Girl On A Train, you are going to love this story. The narrator was spot on!

Average, but Cozy

I quit this a few minutes in, then went back and stayed. It's a *beach read;* what I call an airport pick-up book: not spectacular but it becomes easy on the ears and comfortable. It has that settle in and go along quality that is easy to drift with. The story itself is transparent, easily solved far before the author reveals the facts, but lends itself to pleasantly picturing the events without effort as long as you leave logic in your pocket. Sometimes the perfect book is the one you can pick up, set down, pick up again all without worrying about a book mark.

Wanted to love it

I absolutely loved "Behind Closed Doors," and while the narration for this one was equally good, the story was not. Similar build-up, just much less believable or exciting. The build-up was slow and boring. The motives, which were revealed after several painful hours at 1.5x, were cliché and boring. I felt no connection whatsoever to the main character/narrator and was disappointed overall.

Another Girl on the Train it isn't!

Trite, contrived and boring. Just finished and I'm still waiting for it to warm up. Awful jut awful. Save your credits.
