About the book

The day Aubrey Hamilton’s husband is declared dead by the state of Tennessee should bring closure so she can move on with her life. But Aubrey doesn’t want to move on; she wants Josh back. It’s been five years since he disappeared, since their blissfully happy marriage—they were happy, weren’t they?—screeched to a halt and Aubrey became the prime suspect in his disappearance. Five years of emptiness, solitude, loneliness, questions. Why didn’t Josh show up at his friend’s bachelor party? Was he murdered? Did he run away? And now, all this time later, who is the mysterious yet strangely familiar figure suddenly haunting her new life?

In No One Knows, the New York Times bestselling coauthor of the Nicholas Drummond series expertly peels back the layers of a complex woman who is hiding dark secrets beneath her unassuming exterior. This masterful thriller for fans of Gillian Flynn, Liane Moriarty, and Paula Hawkins will pull readers into a you’ll-never-guess merry-go-round of danger and deception. Round and round and round it goes, where it stops…no one knows.

My Thoughts

I really wanted to like this book. The synopsis sounded really good, and I was seeing some buzz on the internet about it. But when I’m doing everything I can to avoid reading it, I need to cut my losses and move on, right? Well, I didn’t – I kept reading and this book just didn’t win me over. I couldn’t connect with the characters. It was pretty predictable (although the ending did shock me a bit). I definitely didn’t love it like I had hoped. Oh well, you win some, you lose some. Some authors aren’t going to be my cup of tea and that is okay!

Bottom Line

Just an ‘okay’ read for me and not an author I will seek out in the future.

    That rots that the book didn’t turn out to be a good read. I hate when that happens, especially when you keep reading in hopes that it gets better. Oh well. I think you are right though, some books are just not winners. I’m glad I didn’t request this one – I almost did.

    This one is a She Reads book, there are two and I have chosen the other one to read as I am not really a big thriller reader. Disappointing for you that you didn’t enjoy it.

    Oh, no! I was so hoping you would end up loving it. 😦 Now, I’m scared because I bought the audio with hopes to listen next week. Yikes! I hope it’s what I’m in the mood for at the time.
