ABOUT THE BOOK:
Be careful to whom you tell your darkest secrets…
Selena Murphy is commuting home from her job in the city when the train stalls out on the tracks. She strikes up a conversation with a beautiful stranger in the next seat, and their connection is fast and easy. The woman introduces herself as Martha and confesses that she’s been stuck in an affair with her boss. Selena, in turn, confesses that she suspects her husband is sleeping with the nanny. When the train arrives at Selena’s station, the two women part ways, presumably never to meet again.
But days later, Selena’s nanny disappears.
Soon Selena finds her once-perfect life upended. As she is pulled into the mystery of the missing nanny, and as the fractures in her marriage grow deeper, Selena begins to wonder, who was Martha really? But she is hardly prepared for what she’ll discover.
Expertly plotted and reminiscent of the timeless classic Strangers on a Train, Confessions on the 7:45 is a gripping thriller about the delicate facades we create around our lives.
Wow! This book has so many revelations, surprises, secrets, deception, betrayal and lies, lies, lies. I loved this book! Definitely a must read for the year!
I loved the various characters in this novel and reading about their lives, both past and present. I enjoyed reading about what they have been through in life and how that has made them into the people they are today, and how the characters are all connected. Lots of shocks and surprises that I did not see coming and I love that in a book as it keeps me guessing only to shock me when I least expect it. It adds to the excitement of the book and this book does exactly that!
There are several characters in this book, but it is easy to follow along and keep track of them all. Some characters are despicable and easy to hate, others are sweet and easy to adore.
A great novel that I definitely recommend.
MY RATING: 4/5 stars
