Finn and Layla are young, in love, and on vacation. They’re driving along the highway when Finn decides to stop at a service station to use the restroom. He hops out of the car, locks the doors behind him, and goes inside. When he returns Layla is gone—never to be seen again. That is the story Finn told to the police. But it is not the whole story.

Ten years later Finn is engaged to Layla’s sister, Ellen. Their shared grief over what happened to Layla drew them close and now they intend to remain together. Still, there’s something about Ellen that Finn has never fully understood. His heart wants to believe that she is the one for him...even though a sixth sense tells him not to trust her.

Then, not long before he and Ellen are to be married, Finn gets a phone call. Someone from his past has seen Layla—hiding in plain sight. There are other odd occurrences: Long-lost items from Layla’s past that keep turning up around Finn and Ellen’s house. Emails from strangers who seem to know too much. Secret messages, clues, warnings. If Layla is alive—and on Finn’s trail—what does she want? And how much does she know?

A tour de force of psychological suspense, Bring Me Back will have you questioning everything and everyone until its stunning climax.

Angie’s Thoughts:

Bring Me Back is a fast paced thriller that will leave you on the edge of seat until the last page.

Finn and Layla went on a vacation and she disappeared. The only ones who know what happened that night is Layla and Finn. Finn didn’t tell the whole truth of what happened that night and as we read we get glimpses of what truly occurred between those two.

Flash forward and Finn is going to marry Layla’s sister Emma. All of a sudden he starts finding these little Russian dolls everywhere. Then more messages start appearing and he doesn’t know who is messing with him.

This story had me hooked pretty much throughout the book. I figured out the major plot about 3/4 into the book but that didn’t stop me from liking it. I did hate how it ended. I still had questions and it felt like it was rushed. Overall, though, this is a great suspense book that you won’t be disappointed to read.

The Verdict:
