Finn e Layla erano giovani e innamorati. Al ritorno da una vacanza, Finn si è fermato a una stazione di servizio e ha lasciato Layla sola in macchina. Quando è tornato, lei era scomparsa. Questo è ciò che lui ha raccontato alla polizia. Ma non è tutta la verità...
Dodici anni dopo, Finn si è costruito una nuova vita insieme a Ellen, la sorella di Layla. I due si sono trasferiti fuori città e adesso hanno deciso di sposarsi. Ma, all’improvviso, la serenità di Finn viene turbata: prima la telefonata del suo ex vicino, che sostiene di aver visto una donna identica a Layla. Poi, la sera, Ellen che stringe tra le mani una matrioska, dicendo di averla trovata davanti casa. Per Finn, quell’oggetto ha un significato preciso. Possibile che Layla sia tornata? Il dubbio che qualcuno abbia scoperto il suo segreto diventa ossessione quando lui stesso trova un’altra matrioska…

What is it you want Layla?...YOU 1 1/2 stars. I swear I gave it my best shot. I really wanted to love this book. Paris' Behind Closed Doors kept me on the edge of my seat, but her sophomore novel The Breakdown bored me, so I figured two out of three ain't bad , right? Sorry, it's a Meat Loaf kinda
Entertaining but utterly ridiculous!The plot is derived from a soap opera and the main character is a moron. However, it's a fun mindless read! Unfortunately, I was less than impressed with Bring Me Back. I feel like all the soap opera watching I have done helped me to figure things out rather e
Holy Moly! The 'Do Not Disturb’ sign was definitely displayed (mentally if not physically) while I read Bring Me Back! Seriously, if this book had been edible, I would have made myself ill devouring it! British couple Finn and his girlfriend Layla, are on their way home from a skiing trip in France Leggi tutto
Please don't hate me. I have mad respect for B.A. Paris; I felt her debut novel Behind Closed Doors was a forerunner in the domestic abuse thriller genre and I think the quality of her writing is incredible. Unfortunately, this one was just too over the top for me. Like a few other people have mentio Leggi tutto
3.5 stars Have you ever read a book where you think "It was okay. I liked it." and then find yourself thinking about it and then realize that you enjoyed it much more than you initially thought? I had that experience with this book. Upon reading it, I kept thinking about it and the plot and realized Leggi tutto
**4.5-stars** Bring Me Back is the third novel written by one of my favorite Thriller authors, B.A. Paris. I cannot tell you the last time an author has come in and swept me off my feet like she has! This story, like her previous two, starts off with a bang and NEVER lets up. The speed at which her st Leggi tutto
*2.5 Stars* After having LOVED this author’s past two novels, it pains me that I cannot say I loved this one as well. But I can say some other *stuff*, so here goes... I’ll start with the positive because life is good: When I open a B.A. Paris novel, I know I’m about to be put under her spell. I’m rea Leggi tutto
Well done B.A. Paris! If you are a serious thriller fan, this book has everything you crave in a perfectly crafted thriller! When Finn’s girlfriend Layla vanishes one night he’s left devastated. Like being frozen in time, he’s been unable to move on for years. Part of the problem… he can’t quite reme Leggi tutto
I don’t mind suspending belief (it’s commercial fiction after all) but when I enter the realm of the ludicrous count me out.
Addictive, fast-paced, and mind boggling! It’s been awhile since I could refer to a book as “unputdownable” but here we are. Finally! Every single theory I had about where the plot was going was given to the main character as part of his ideas at a little past the halfway point, and I was stuck there Leggi tutto
