Iris and Will have been married for seven years, and their marriage is as close to perfect as it can be. But on the morning Will leaves for a business trip to Florida, Iris' happy world comes to an abrupt halt. Another plane headed for Seattle has crashed into a field, killing everyone on board, and, according to the airline, Will was one of the passengers.
Grief stricken and confused, Iris is convinced it all must be a huge misunderstanding. Why did Will lie about where he was going? What is in Seattle? And what else had he lied about?
As Iris sets off on a desperate quest to find out what her husband was keeping from her, the answers she receives will shock her to her very core.

It was alright...
I listened to the book all the way through, its a fairly decent story although no real twists in the tale, its almost handed to you, and the end is very predictable. My opinion is the author played it safe with the characters and really should have put them through the wringer a bit.

I very rarely give up on a book/audiobook but had to make an exception for this.
Irritating narration made it worse but the main flaws were in the bland, stereotyped characters, sprinkled with lazy tropes about race and sexuality (black men are good at running, she knew the brother was gay before he did... ETC!), coupled with the ‘twist’ I saw coming a mile off.
I couldn’t empathise at all with first-person perspective character Iris because she was too annoying and somewhat stupid. On occasion this can be an excellent device (e.g. Wuthering Heights) but I don’t *think* that was intended here.
I was so bored I couldn’t be bothered to find out how it ended. I also couldn’t take any more of this narrator’s attempts to do male voices- apparently all men speak like they’re waking up from a drug-induced coma. Bad attempts at character voices really push me out of the story. Better not to bother - just read the story in your own voice.
Not for me. The first audiobook I’m going to try and return.

Just a Middling Story --Long & Trite at Times
This book didn't quite captivate me -- perhaps because it just sounded like a whiny, good-wifey person trying to figure out what her husband had done to their marriage throughout most of the story. Of course, she found out -- although the finding out was tedious and somewhat contrived it seemed to me. In the end, the whiny wife got her revenge -- but it wasn't a satisfying ending to the story at all. It just seemed that two evil, immature people found each other and made a mockery of marriage. If I could do it over, I wouldn't spend the time or money.

Last third of the book doesn't hold up
Any additional comments?
Ultimately disappointing. Kind of a romance book mixed with a thriller, or a thriller about a romance. The husband's motives for lying to his wife and not going to Florida felt pretty weak. Then they threw in this handy new love interest who also happens to be a lawyer, (Evan) so he can now help Iris with looking into Will's background, chasing leads, and dealing with the police. He makes Will look bad in comparison, with what meager shading in of his character we do get; plus he's more interested in saving and protecting Iris than almost anything else, despite the fact that he just lost his wife and child in the same plane crash. He even invites her to stay at his home for her safety, saying he can't stand how empty it feels. Idk, i just feel like a lot of the characters motivations seemed manufactured for plot ease.
On the other hand, it's a pretty good thriller, better than your typical dime mystery whodunit, and I liked the twist at the end (the last sentence.) Not a big twist, but kind of an ironic twist; a cynical statement about forgiveness and reprisals, I suppose. Like other reviewers said, it's pretty strong for the first 2/3rds. And it's not as if the last third is weak, exactly, I just felt disappointed by the answers
