TGIF! Thank you Simon & Schuster Audio for the gifted copy of this audiobook! 

Hannah’s life changes when she receives a quickly scribbled note from her husband Owen. The note simple says “protect her” referring to Owen’s 16 year old daughter Bailey. Soon after,  the news soon breaks that the tech company Owen works for is under federal investigation, Owen’s boss has been arrested, and Owen has disappeared. Hannah must find out what happened to Owen and keep Bailey safe. But from who? 

Author Laura Dave’s compelling thriller pulled me right in. Hannah is a strong, level headed, and likable main character. Her strength shows in her decision to be proactive in her search for answers and her focus to keep Bailey safe. Her relationship with her stepdaughter isn’t perfect. Bailey’s spent most of her life with just her dad because her mom died when Bailey was a small child. Bailey isn’t used to sharing Owen with anyone else and she resents Hannah’s inclusion in their lives. Kudos to the author for making Bailey a believable teen character. She’s sullen and snarky at times, but her character never becomes an eye-rolling teen clichรฉ. 

Rebecca Lowman’s excellent narration adds nuisance and depth to Hannah’s character and the story. The story races along at a fast pace and the plot twists and turns to kept me guessing. This is an  enthralling thriller about betrayal, secrets, family, lies, and sacrifice. Available now!


What’s everyone reading and doing this weekend?
