Bring Me Back
by B. A. Paris
While driving through France, Finn and Layla stop so he can go to the restroom. When he returns to the car, Layla is gone. She is never seen again. Twelve years later, Finn is happy and engaged to Ellen, Layla’s sister. Mysterious messages start to arrive, and they seem to be from Layla.
Told through alternating time periods – before Layla went missing and after. About halfway through, the narration also alternates between characters. The story has plenty of suspense to keep the reader interested, but I was not a fan of the characters. I never connected to them, and, ultimately, they felt a bit flat.
Psychological thriller. Unreliable narrators. Twisty ending.
I received a digital copy of this book from St. Martin’s Press and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
