It takes only a moment to unravel a perfect life....

When Grace’s fiancé vanishes without a trace the night after proposing, her life is turned upside down. But has Nick walked out on her, or is he in danger?

As Grace desperately searches for answers, it soon becomes clear that Nick wasn’t the uncomplicated man she thought she knew. And when she uncovers a hidden tragedy from his childhood, she realises an awful truth: that you can run from your past - but your secrets will always catch up with you....

I just kept hoping..

Having read the previous reviews I'd hoped this book would eventually kick in but unfortunately, it just didn't. Save yourself the agony and read something else, I wish I had.

So many twists and turns I had no idea where it was going.

It kept me guessing right up until the end, so exciting. Brilliant believable characters, excellent narrator, just so sad that it has finished!Would make a brilliant TV six parter

Predictable with poor narration

Narration was just a serious of statements, no emotion or suspense created, very dull to listen to. Story was really unbelievable, couldn't wait for it to finish so don't get the rave reviews??

Great twist!

I really enjoyed listening to this book. It does take a little to get used to with the very indepth descriptions but keep going. Great twist towards the end. Very happy with my purchase!

Terrible

Too much irrelevant detail, no real storyline and did not enjoy the narration. Don't waste your time. I only listened to it all because I'd paid for it.
