Publisher's Summary

Twenty years running from your past. Today it catches up.

A gripping psychological thriller for fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train.

Leah Mills lives a life of a fugitive - kept on the run by one terrible day from her past. It is a lonely life, without a social life or friends until, longing for a connection, she meets Julian.

For the first time she dares to believe she can live a normal life. Then, on the 20th anniversary of that day, she receives a card. Someone knows the truth about what happened. Someone who won't stop until they've destroyed the life Leah has created. But is Leah all she seems? Or does she deserve everything she gets?

Everyone has secrets. But some are deadly.

The Girl with No Past spent over four weeks at number one in the Amazon chart.

    "Readable but not memorable"

    I enjoyed this book in parts and it had the potential to be a captivating thriller. Told in first person, the story flits between events in the past and events in the present. However, I found so many of the actions of the main character completely unrealistic, far more than bad judgement and just ended up irritated. I wanted to read to the end to gather all the pieces of the story but I wasn't wowed by the quality of the language, which as it's told in first person is speech like. Readable definitely but I'm glad it was on sale.

    "very dull"
    How could the performance have been better?

    Very monotone throughout.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    By the ending I didn't really care what happened or who did what.

    "Returned"

    Never returned a book before but just couldn't listen to this, jarring, mono-tone narrator with an odd rhythm to her voice. Couldn't listen and gave up! too tricky to follow

    "a good thriller overall"

    a well written and entertaining piece. I found the latter part of the book slow with a disappointing finale. such a pity as there is potential for a more complex relationship.

    "How did this get published???"

    An overwritten, self indulgent waste of time. The author uses 50 words when 5 will do. Take out the irrelevant filler and this book would be 5 chapters long... 5 chapters too long. Generally love narration by Lisa Coleman but not even she could save this one. Beware!!!

    Story
    "Leigh Mills - the girl who wants to lose her past"
    What made the experience of listening to The Girl with No Past the most enjoyable?

    The book is really two books; one is Leigh's past and the other is Leigh's present. Each chapter relates to one of those periods; no two consecutive chapters related to the same period.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, the past is only revealed in small parts yet the past in total explains the present. Thus, as the author relates bits and pieces from the past, the reader begins to understand the present.


    Have you listened to any of Lisa Coleman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but she is perfect for this book


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not so much moved but the next to the last chapter was somewhat of a surprise and somewhat mystifying. I don't want to reveal the plot but one wonders how she survived.

    "Strange to Follow"

    A huge disappointment is all I can say?
    I tried listening to this audio several times over to no avail...... Lisa Colman's narrative
    voice is the only thing that allowed me to continue five attempts to try and understand this Strange audio book that only got Stranger to me each chapter. If I rated this novel 1-10 books I have listen to .... it's a one and it's hard to even do that because Lisa Colman's narration was very good however because she even read this story to us I gave it a one. Croft I'm totally upset your publishing company told you this was okay??? DeAnn DeVille

    Story
    "Dribbling the Plot"

    The author can write well with a wonderful turn of phrase but she needs some help with the plot. The later story was a solid mystery if a bit predictable but chapter after chapter of the earlier story was badly paced. I kept thinking, "Get to the point already...". The early story was needlessly tedious. The ending was also no big surprise.

    Narration was spectacular.

    Honestly I liked this book and thought it was good, although not my favorite. It definitely kept me interested, but at times it got a little cheesy and unbelievable.
