It has been 6 years since Jake watched the love of his life, Natalie, marry another man. When he sees the obituary of Natalie’s husband he decides to go to the funeral. He’s shocked to find out that this man was married to another woman for many years and there is no sign of Natalie. Now he is determined to figure out what happened to his ex.
I wasn’t a huge fan of this book because mistaken identity-like plots annoy me and this reminded me of that. I figured out the mystery about halfway through the book so it seemed predictable to me. I started to like it more towards the end. It got more interesting as they through in some more details about what was going on.Â I think I’ll check out more from this author.
Rachel’s Holiday by Marian Keyes
When Rachel overdoses on cocaine and sleeping pills in New York, her family brings her home to Ireland to go to rehab in the Cloisters. She doesn’t believe that she is an addict, but the Cloisters is where pop stars go so she thinks it will be like a health spa with famous people lounging about.
I listened to this on audio and spent most of it wanting to smack someone. Rachel is horrible and hateful which is to be expected when she is the grips of her addiction. But, her whole family is absolutely horrible too and made me want to start doing drugs in sympathy. I liked this book most towards the end when she got out of rehab and is trying to remake her life.Â I’ve loved the rest of this author’s books that I’ve read.Â This is an early one so maybe that’s why I didn’t love it as much as her later books.

Dr. Abigail Silva has waited 10,000 years for God to honor a promise to make her human.Â Now she needs to decide if she will sacrifice her chance for redemption to save humanity.
This is the third book of the Soulkeepers series.Â This wasn’t my favorite book in the series but it was a good end to it.Â I love that cover too.Â That’s a bad thing about reading on an iPad.Â You don’t really get to see the artwork.
Made you want to take drugs in sympathy? Yikes!
I’ve had that experience where an author’s earlier books don’t please me as much. For some authors, I just won’t read anything written before a certain year, no matter how many times they reprint those titles!
I must check out this Harlan Coben, I am normally such a fan but the last one I read of his just didn’t hit the mark.
