Imagine you meet a man, spend seven glorious days together, and fall in love. And it’s mutual: you’ve never been so certain of anything. So, when he leaves for a long-booked holiday and promises to call from the airport, you have no cause to doubt him. But he doesn’t call. Your friends tell you to forget him, but you know they're wrong: something must have happened; there must be a reason for his silence. What do you do when you finally discover you're right? That there is a reason – and that reason is the one thing you didn't share with each other... The truth.


I listened to the audiobook of this and it was a bit of a slog to start with, I’m not going to lie. Sarah meets a guy, he disappears, and she pines about it for a significantly long time. I can understand the sentiment but oof, it dragged. However, once things do actually get moving, the mystery starts unravelling and THAT twist I didn’t see coming at all, well then it got good and has actually stuck with me ever since. Perserverence was the key to this one, but it was worth it.
