Very interesting book. It is hard to write too much about it without spoiling the story. I think it is much better to dive into the book and discover all that is happening. It is definitely a different story line than I have read before. Good character-driven story, with good character development. Not a difficult book and it speeds right along without a lot of slow, set-the-stage type of writing. It did seem to rush through things at the end but still done well in my opinion. I agree with an Amazon reviewer about "anyways" snapping me out of an otherwise smooth read. There was something else of a similar vein that grated on my read but I have forgotten it. All in all, a better than average book, though. ( )

I admit, I didn't expect much from this book - I was really just looking for a time-killer. But it was engrossing. I tend to go for books that are more character-driven and this one definitely qualifies, but I'm not used to such character-focused novel being so tense (I don't read a lot of suspense - maybe it's normal, I don't know). As the tension ramped up, it was hard to keep myself from skipping paragraphs because I wanted to know what was going to be revealed next. There were a few moments in the middle when it was shifting from very character-driven to a bit more plot-driven that I worried it was going to get overly-dramatic and ridiculous (thanks to a couple of try-hard-feeling chapter cliffhangers), but that settled out as the pacing picked up. Very entertaining read. ( )

The initial hook seemed farfetched, but I went along with it, putting my faith in the author that she had a plan to resolve it. I let myself get caught up in the story as it appeared, piece by piece, and especially by the characters (although the husband, Rory, is a mere caricature). As the remaining pages dwindled, I grew concerned, but kept my faith. Then the book ended. It turns out that there was no plan to tie things together. The whole plot is just a freak coincidence between the two main characters, and a freak plane crash. What a disappointment. By adopting this thriller writing style, I feel that there is an implicit promise that there will be a thriller-like conclusion—a twist ending, perhaps—to wrap things up. There has to be some deeper story, or perhaps a conspiracy, involving the husband. But no. Aside from this, I enjoyed the novel. ( )

I ate this up in one day a mystery thriller about two strong women whose lives intersect, each running from dangerous men. Exciting! ( )

What a page turner this was! This could be read in one sitting if possible without interruptions.

I much preferred reading about Claire for obvious reasons. She has the most exciting part of the story and the one you're on edge about. There are some face palm moments for her as she has moments of absolute stupidity but to be fair she's always walking on egg shells and on high alert and you can't blame her.

I wish there a bit more to Eva's story. It started off really good but it falls pretty flat half way through. Nothing much else happens when there was a lot of potential to add more to it.

I did like how everything came together. It was seamless, smooth, maybe a little too coincidental but it worked well.

Highly recommend this quick read. ( )

Dedicated to all the women who have come forward with their stories. Whether it be in front of a congressional panel on live television or alone in a windowless human resources office--- we hear you. We believe you.

The loss had faded, as all losses did, replaced by something harder. Stronger. She could see now what she couldn't see then. All choices had consequences. It was what you did with those consequences that mattered.
Everything you ever wanted is on the other side of fear.
This is what it's like to die, having left so much unfinished. It still tethers you---like an in breakable thread, always leading your thoughts back to if only. But if only is a useless question, a spotlight shining on an empty stage, illuminating what never was, and never will be.
"You know, life is long. Lots of things can go wrong and still end up all right."
This was the funny thing about regret. It lived inside of you, shrinking down until you could almost believe it had vanished, only to have it spring up, fully formed, call forwarded by people who meant you no harm.
