Spoiler alert I understand having an unreliable narrator, but you can t just pull a 180 and have that tie everything together I enjoyed the premise and 85% of the book, but the end ruined it all for me.

No No No Don t bother.I am not even going to review this one I could barely get through it I am done reading books that are compared to GONE GIRL and GIRL ON THE TRAIN I am done reading books with unreliable narrators and those that have twists that really don t make any sense other than to be a gotcha know what I mean When you know there is one and are looking for one, you re prepared and it is a gimmick I want to believe my characters and like them and even if I can t, I still expect plausibility in context I am thankful to NetGalley for offering me the e book ARC when I requested it. Now anyone that follows my reviews thank you will know that I m a huge fan of twisty tales, those stories with incredibly well drawn characters that keep you on your toes for the entire time and hopefully surprise you at the end.There have been rumblings that this type of story has now been done to death, that there are no surprises, nothing new Well whilst J T Ellison has not necessarily done something new here what she HAS done is written a corker of a psychological thriller, with some intensely disturbing yet loveable characters, subtle twists that make you crazy and created a brilliantly atmospheric page turner.Aubrey is entirely fascinating dealing with the loss of her husband, facing down an uncertain future and haunted by a challenging childhood We first meet her just as Josh is being officially declared dead, from there things just start happening, she keeps seeing familiar faces but is someone watching her or is she going crazy Frankly I think I ve gone crazy trying to get a handle on her, but this is the beauty of this kind of novel when it is done this well.Aubrey is not alone in the fascinating character department As we start getting snippets of the past, time hopping to start bringing the bigger picture into focus, we have Mother in Law Daisy who has never liked Aubrey, new man in her life Chase, best friend Meghan and indeed Josh himself Weaving an intricate web around this bunch, J T Ellison creates a truly engaging tale of human nature and nurture, reminding us once again that you can never really know someone when it comes to their inner thoughts or motives Clever, unpredictable and GREAT fun to read.You may or may not see the end coming, but it doesnt matter in No One Knows the solution could be anything some seriously twisted people in here JUST the way I like it.Highly Recommended. MY BLOG Melissa Martin s Reading List Fairy tales don t come true Parents die and leave you alone in the world Little girls get molested Lovers die husbands lie, and disappear, then try to pretend all is well. Aubrey s husband Josh has been missing for five years and now the evil mother in law, Daisy, is having him declared dead And Aubrey is livid that this woman is doing this, I didn t even know a mother could override the wife, but anyway The story moves back and forth in time, from when Aubrey and Josh knew each other as kids, between Aubrey then now and some with Josh then and up to the day he went missing I know it sounds confusing, but it s really not The book reeled me in and I just wanted to know what happened It wasn t all that climatic when the reader finds out what truly happened but it did have an end game and a happy ending in my opinion One evening when Aubrey and Josh are on their way to their friends bachelor and bachelorette parties, they get into a little fender bender, nothing major They run into the back of a vehicle, exchange information and continue on, they get to the hotel and go to their separate destinations within the hotel and that is the last time Aubrey sees her husband Where did he go She has to wonder this over and over for five years, she writes letters to him on his email praying he will one day answer Even after her mother in law declares him dead, Aubrey has a hard time moving on And on top of that she has to deal with Daisy taking her to court to contest the insurance money from Josh, it s a huge chunk of money and Daisy thinks she deserves it and not the wife, Aubrey Daisy is one evil lady She has treated Aubrey like dirt since her and Josh were young kids Aubrey has a long history with Josh, he was there for her when she got put into a foster home He doesn t really know all that happened to her there, but Aubrey has a sort of savior in her foster brother Tyler, even though he s in and out of jail Aubrey has always loved Josh and misses him so much, I can t even image if someone I loved just disappeared off the face of the earth I think that would be worse not knowing, at least if you know they died or something, you had some kind of closure There are a great group of characters in the book that all take part in this story We start to find out some strange things that finally comes to a conclusion and what happened to Josh We also found out Daisy was keeping a very big secret from everyone and it is strange how it all comes about, but it actually works out for the better I think the author did a very good job of creating characters you wanted to learn about and wrote the book in such a way that you wanted to hurry up and get to the end to find out what happened I would like to thank Netgalley and Gallery, Threshold, Pocket Books for a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I don t understand how this has good reviews I don t know how to say this without revealing the ending of the book, so I ve hidden it because of spoilers How in the world did we go through the whole book with Aubrey narrating.and not know that she knew the whole story This book was a cheat You can t have an unreliable narrator and then have the narrator know everything at the end and call it a twist ending That s not a twist ending that s a lie I thought this book was barely okay until the end I didn t like the writing too much and the love scenes were unnecessarily long, but the ending was just ridiculous And there was absolutely nothing that brought Chase into this story It s just a coincidence that they are brothers What are the chances of that happening, seriously. This book has a premise that always draws me into a story someone missing without a trace I was engrossed throughout and really wanted to know what happened However, I felt manipulated by the author in the end Here are my opinions I had to put a spoiler warning because there s just no way to say this without it being a spoiler If she knew about everything, then why were we, the readers, led to believe that she didn t throughout most of the book That twist just came out of nowhere She was the epitome of the unreliable narrator Plus her drug use was a puzzle, just kept getting thrown in there from time to time but it wasn t really a factor.Some other puzzles were Meghan character had so much potential, but ended up being a red herring Chase being his brother was WAY too convenient The only thing that saved it was the thin thread that she thought he was dead because he didnt come back for her But that just elevated it from a 2 star to a 3 star This book was provided free by the publisher in exchange for my honest review. 3 1 2 starsMy View The premise of this book enthralled me, the execution did not.This book did not follow through with its promises I did discover the merry go round but it made me dizzy and did not entertain Unfortunately there were large tracks of this narrative where I could no longer suspend my disbelief events, situations and characters that confused or just didn t work for me.Maybe it was me Maybe I was tired and unable to give this the concentration it needed And a few of the plots twists and reveals I guessed so the impact wasn t there My main issues were uneven writing and I was not able to suspend my disbelief maybe you can Are all the really good reviews a joke I don t get it Way too much going on in this book, the twists were ridiculous, the plot was a mess, the characters were laughable I hate reading a book with so much buzz that falls so flat Skip this one
