Six years have passed since Jake Fisher watched Natalie, the love of his life, marry another man. Six years of hiding a broken heart by throwing himself into his career as a college professor. Six years of keeping his promise to leave Natalie alone, and six years of tortured dreams of her life with her new husband, Todd.
But six years haven’t come close to extinguishing his feelings, and when Jake comes across Todd’s obituary, he can’t keep himself away from the funeral. There he gets the glimpse of Todd’s wife he’s hoping for...but she is not Natalie. Whoever the mourning widow is, she’s been married to Todd for almost two decades, and with that fact, everything Jake thought he knew about the best time of his life - a time he has never gotten over - is turned completely inside out.
As Jake searches for the truth, his picture-perfect memories of Natalie begin to unravel. Mutual friends of the couple either can’t be found or don’t remember Jake. No one has seen Natalie in years. Jake’s search for the woman who broke his heart, who lied to him, soon puts his very life at risk as it dawns on him that the man he has become may be based on a carefully constructed fiction.
Harlan Coben once again delivers a shocking novel that deftly explores the power of past love and the secrets and lies that such love can hide.

Worst Coben Book Ever Worst Scott Brick Narration
I agree with Lynn, Gail and Malia. Malia said: "Drop the soapy love obsession. It got old after the first few times; I found myself saying, all right already. And I really wished the guy would quit getting beat up. I wanted someone I could cheer on; instead I found myself joining the other characters who told Jake, DROP IT ALREADY!!"
That is a very good summary. I was hoping Jake would get beaten up again or even killed. I hated this obsession book.
I am also getting tired of Scott Brick. Lynn said: "Usually (I) like Scott Brick but the overly dramatic and breathless narration on this is really annoying. I... dislike the main character intensely and do not know whether it is the story or the narrator because the narration is so extreme."
The book had a snail's pace progress and Scott Brick dragged that out even longer. I just kept wishing this book would end. I almost stopped reading it a number of times but I had already invested so much time. Plus I wanted to be able to truly rate the book and felt that if I had not listened all the way I could not accurately rate it.
The ending was easy to guess. I knew who the "killer" was by about half way through.
This is easily Coben's worst book ever. I have decided to stop buying his stuff unless it's a Myron Bolitar novel.
No just more stand alone Harlen Coben books
I used to like Scott Brick. Now I find that he is way over the top with his breathless narrations and long pauses and very slow reading. I am going to avoid his books for a while.
Every long sappy introspection by the main dopey character.
Avoid this book!!!
