A young British couple are driving through France on holiday when they stop for gas. He runs in to pay, she stays in the car. When he returns her car door has been left open, but she's not inside. No one ever sees her again.
Ten years later he's engaged to be married; he's happy, and his past is only a tiny part his life now. Until he comes home from work and finds his new wife-to-be is sitting on their sofa. She's turning something over in her fingers, holding it up to the light. Something that would have no worth to anyone else, something only he and she would know about, because his wife is the sister of his missing first love.
As more and more questions are raised, their marriage becomes strained. Has his first love somehow come back to him after all this time? Or is the person who took her playing games with his mind?
This is one of those books that I ended up liking but it took me a while to get into the story. I actually started this book and then I kept getting confused between the back and forth of the timeline and this story was not keeping me interested. I finally put the book down read a few other books and then finally came back to it.
Once I got about 45% in I started to be okay.
We start the story off where Finn and his girlfriend Layla pull off to a rest stop this is where Finn's nightmare beings. When Layla goes missing Finn has learn to put it behind him once he realizes she isn't coming back though it is never too far from his mind. When weird Russian dolls start appearing, then his fiance believes she saw Layla, and then finally the weird emails start to come in, Finn doesn't believe her to be back but what if she is. Where has she been all these years? Once all this starts up we see how Finn handles it all and he does seem to go a bit mental. Now Finn as a character drove me crazy and I can't pin point exactly what it was. I honestly could not wrap my head around the fact that he is with his the sister of Layla. Though everything starts to make sense towards the end when we start getting all the answers. Pretty neat how the author did this. Mental illness will play a part within this story and it is up to you to determine who has it.
