Iris and Will have been married for seven years, and life is as close to perfect as it can be. But on the morning Will flies out for a business trip to Florida, Iris's happy world comes to an abrupt halt: another plane headed for Seattle has crashed into a field, killing everyone on board and, according to the airline, Will was one of the passengers. Grief stricken and confused, Iris is convinced it all must be a huge misunderstanding. Why did Will lie about where he was going? And what else has he lied about? As Iris sets off on a desperate quest to uncover what her husband was keeping from her, the answers she finds shock her to her very core.

I really enjoyed this book! Instead of the usual 'my husband died and had a secret life and now I question him and our whole life', the main character wanted to find out about his life but always loved him and never questioned or regretted the life they lived together. The book had a great storyline and kept me reading.

A great suspenseful book! Kept me guessing. Looking forward to reading another of the author's books.

A fun and fast-paced mystery. I wasn't quite sold on the characters' motivations within the story, but I appreciated that the author didn't take the cliché path. This is not a book you'll likely remember in a month from now, but it was a fun way to spend a Saturday.

Was overall pretty predictable. Decent beach read, but nothing that wasn't similar to what I've already read.

This was a ridiculous story with unbelievable characters and a plot full of holes. Strictly amateur hour, folks.

What a great book. Loved the characters, the pace and the writing. Hope to see more of her books on the shelves soon.

Psychological thriller about a woman coming to grips with the death of her husband in a plane crash and the questions that arise from him about why he was on that specific flight when he had told her he would be on another. This leads to her questioning her marriage. What other lies might he have told? , and her quest to figure it out. Nice easy read, lots of implausible scenarios and a summary ending. Why does an author feel like they have to retell the story when they already told it?
