In an obsessive mystery as thrilling as The Girl on the Train andThe Husband’s Secret, New York Times bestselling author J.T. Ellison will make you question every twist in her page-turning novel—and wonder which of her vividly drawn characters you should trust.
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.
I received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review.
Hot dog I was impressed with this story. I literally was captivated until the very end and when this HUGE twist came about I sat back and "naw there was no way that happened like that." I have to say this author did a might fine job of having us readers me especially think certain things only to have that thought ripped from us and in its place something else entirely. I love books like this.
We go back and forth in the present and the past with Aubrey when she was younger to now. We also have Josh's account of past and present to what leads up to his death. I think the author did a great job with doing this timeline that way. Though she also threw in other characters p.o.v. in the mix which was okay it wasn't bad you just got to make sure you know who you are reading about when you flip the pages to the next chapter.
I kept waiting for when we would find out what really happened to Josh and I was glad when it all came to light.
For five years Aubrey has been dealing with the fact her husband has been missing, his mother Daisy doesn't believe him to be missing because she believes him to be dead and she believes Aubrey has something to do with it.
When the state of Tennessee says he is dead everyone has to come with terms with it but what happens when Aubrey believes she might have seen him? It seems she goes on her on conquest to find answers. Who are these shady characters that come into Aubrey's life are they the same ones who might have had a hand in her husband's death? This book will keep you wondering what happened, how did it happen and who is all involved. Keep turning the pages because when the huge twist comes you may be just as surprised as I was.
Would I read more from this author for sure, as this was a great suspense and mystery book for me.
