Bring Me Back

Summary: 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?


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I really enjoyed Behind Closed Doors and The Breakdown by B.A. Paris and have to admit that the summary of Bring Her Back appealed to me.

But Bring Her Back did not give me the thrills that the previous books did.

I read a lot of thrillers, mystery, suspense, psychological thrillers, etc…. And truth be told- that while I LOVE them mainly- I’m not always completely surprised. Maybe it’s the Gone Girl effect that causes me to really dig deep into the words and the meanings and the possibilities.  But I had 2 theories about this book around the halfway point. One theory was a bit too logical, but actually might have thrilled me more.

The other theory was left field theory…. meaning it came out of left field and it was kinda easy to dismiss at first, but then it just kept circling in my brain…. and I was right. And then I was kinda disappointed because there was at least 2 other ways this book could have gone that I think would have been more bang for the buck. Oh well…

What I liked:

The cover!

How the story was set up. It just started off sounding shady as hell.


Bottom line: For me this was def a like not a LOVE book. And if you want to start a drinking game with your book club- take a drink every time Russian dolls are mentioned. You’ll be hammered by halfway through the book.
