ABOUT THE BOOK:

Lila Ridgefield lives in an idyllic college town, but not everything is what it seems. Lila isn’t what she seems.A student vanished months ago. Now, Lila’s husband, Aaron, is also missing. At first these cases are treated as horrible coincidences until it’s discovered the student is really the third of three unexplained disappearances over the last few years. The police are desperate to find the connection, if there even is one. Little do they know they might be stumbling over only part of the truth….

With the small town in an uproar, everyone is worried about the whereabouts of their beloved high school teacher. Everyone except Lila, his wife. She’s definitely confused about her missing husband but only because she was the last person to see his body, and now it’s gone.

MY REVIEW:

An addictive, who-done-it novel that will have you guessing and guessing again as you flip through the pages. A scorned wife, a missing husband, and a whole lot of twists and turns, you will devour this book!

Meet Lila Ridgefield. She is married to Aaron, and she finds a hidden phone of his that has questionable videos on it. Of course Aaron downplays it and says it is not what it looks like, but Lila is no fool. Suddenly Aaron disappears and no one has a clue where he could be or why he suddenly vanished. Of course, eyes all turn to Lila. She pleads she has no idea where he is, but she has to play it cool and not look suspicious, even though she is shaking inside – after all she IS the last one to see him. And when she left him, he was not alive. How does a body suddenly go missing?

I loved the suspense surrounding the plot. Where did Aaron’s body disappear, and how? Was he truly not dead when she left him and now he is out to seek his revenge? Is someone else involved? There is so much going on it it unsure who to trust and who to believe. I kind of suspected what was going on but wasn’t 100% certain, so I enjoyed how this novel kept me guessing until the end, when all is revealed. A definite must add to your TBR.
