Summary

When I wake up with the sun in my eyes the morning after my daughter’s birthday party, I know something is very wrong. I go straight to her room but feel a surge of panic when I see an empty bed. Downstairs everything is totally quiet, and the front door is locked. Why didn’t I hear her scream? Who took our little girl?

My husband says I’ve been struggling since Skylar was born and that sometimes I forget things. But I remember every moment of my daughter’s party - including him locking the door after our family and friends left. Yes, we both had a drink and I slept heavily but I know I would have heard my child cry. A good mother always does.

My therapist says I need to stand up for myself. She wants me to confront my husband about the woman I heard him talking to the other night when he thought I was asleep. And about the child’s toy that I found that does not belong to Skylar. Is he hiding something?

But as the hours race by I soon realize I was totally wrong about everything that happened that night. I thought I’d put my past behind me long ago but I was wrong. All I know is this: I’ll do whatever it takes to save my child.

Will you believe me?

A heart-pounding, unbelievably twisty psychological thriller that will have you sleeping with the light on! Fans of Gone Girl, Behind Closed Doors, and The Stepdaughter will be utterly gripped.

Not what I expected

The book is alright. If you’re looking for a book about postpartum depression and the effects it has on a the family. Otherwise… the first 3 hours has nothing to do with a missing child. Im on chapter 20 and Im still waiting for the “thriller” part to come in.

Predictable

This audio book wasn’t relatable and predictable in almost every way. I didn’t care for the infidelity usage.

A dragging start to an even worse ending

This is possibly the worst book I have listened to. Sad I spent a credit on it. Don’t bother.

Stupidest book I’ve ever read

That was the stupidest book I have ever read in my life. At first it was interesting but by the end I was laughing at how absolutely ridiculous it was all wrapped up in a little bow. Do not bother!

Good Story

Here are my criticisms w NO spoilers. 1. There is zero chance in H that a 2yr old child speaks that extensively. 2. I suppose we can chalk it up to mental illness, but there are a million more sane/effective ways that protagonist could have executed the plan.

Don’t waste your credit

So painful to get through. Writing of events very repetitive and forced. I almost returned boom several times throughout my listening experience.
