I just finished this book, while it is a fast read and did have one interesting plot twist, I just felt it didn't have much depth. It seems like the kind of light romance novel I try to avoid, disguised as a "suspense"novel. The characters are unlikable and the storyline is pretty thin. Would not recommend unless you are looking for something quick and simple, not necessarily thought-provoking.

This fast paced page turner offers many surprises as the story is told from two perspectives. It's almost impossible to put down so be prepared to read it in one or two sittings.

Couldn't put the book down! So many great elements --- interesting characters, good plot , excellent writing . The author's own loss of a child is an undercurrent of compassion for his characters.

I did not like this book at all. I think it was a waste of time and only finished it because it was for my book club. The two main characters were unlikeable and a good majority of the book was told from the perspective of an unreliable narrator. It was boring and repetitive.

Just get past the first part of the book - that's my advice.  You may want to stop reading, but don't.   The story becomes much more thoughtful and the writing becomes more elegant and nuanced.  There's a reason why the fist part is a but hum-drum.  But it takes off and the writing, the story, the characters, everything changes dramatically.  You'll be rewarded with a richly developed story of loss, grief, and "what might have been."

This book was something of a revelation. It had me hooked from the beginning and just when I thought I knew where it was going, the author threw in a major development that I did not see coming. A good character study and commentary on the toll taken by unresolved emotional issues and grief.

Now I was completely blown away! Here I thought Arthur was someone I love to hate but 'WHAM' I got slammed and my first thought of him flew out the window. This author took me on a ride, falling in love, jealousy, vengeful feelings, separation, desire, obsession, status quo, regrets but the twist to this story just caught me by surprise. I had this palpitation of anger slowly building towards Arthur then the twist of the story made my heart grow heavy with pure grieve. Russell's remembers first love, Betsy remembers being a mother, Elizabeth protecting her love of her life, Arthur remembering how he feel in love and the inevitable "regrets." Mind spiraling until you have no control. We exhibit different ways of coping but sometimes we get lost in them and can't find our way back, huh this book exposed that side of the human emotions. I cannot say more because it would only disclose the book's "twist" but what I can say, the author described Arthur's emotional stress so vividly that I could see it on a screen. Strange how everything came full circle between Arthur, his wife Elizabeth and their son Ethan and Betsy and Russell. I wish I could tell you more but I would completely give the story away, that's how wonderfully good this book is. I felt the emotional pain they were going through, the credit goes to the author. I read the acknowledgement at the end of this book and this is when I realized why this book was an emotional piece of excellence. My heart goes out to the author and his family. I learned a long time ago writing does soothe the soul. Our deepest feelings grasp our hands and as fast as you think of it your utmost feelings is in plain view. "A wisp of a thought brought to life." I won this book on Goodreads, First Read Giveaway. Thank you, Darlene Cruz

Keeps you in suspense

I've only started  the excerpt and come across clumsy writing like," They don’t need to speak, for they are both drinking in the moment, the day, the happiness of their boy, and the gift of this experience"   or, " A couple of times they suggest they should keep walking"   PULEEEEZE!
