Background: This story follows a married couple Anne and Marco Conti. To those looking on the outside in, Anne and Marco seem to have it all. While at a dinner party next door, Anne and Marco’s baby Cora goes missing. Just like in any child abduction, eyes fall on Anne and Marco as being the responsible parties behind Cora’s disappearance. Anne has secrets, Marco has secrets and those secrets begin to unfold as the investigation of their daughters disappearance is underway.

My thoughts: As the story progress we see lies, and unfaithfulness come to surface. You will find yourself wanting to mourn with the Anne, and there are times when you want to hate her. You will have your suspicions of Marco, and then you will find yourself feeling sorry for him. But what you will not expect is the biggest twist of this book.  It literally is mind-blowing. When you finish this book, you will more than likely be so upset that you did not piece two and two together sooner. I love me and a good domestic suspense and this was everything! I will say that I did not enjoy the ending of the story, I felt like it was thrown in there, when the ending could have stopped with who the mastermind was behind the disappearance of Cora. But with that being said, it was such a fantastic read.

Until next time, until the next book.
