Summary

A Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestseller.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover comes a novel that explores life after tragedy and the enduring spirit of love.

When Leeds meets Layla, he’s convinced he’ll spend the rest of his life with her - until an unexpected attack leaves Layla fighting for her life. After weeks in the hospital, Layla recovers physically, but the emotional and mental scarring has altered the woman Leeds fell in love with. In order to put their relationship back on track, Leeds whisks Layla away to the bed-and-breakfast where they first met. Once they arrive, Layla’s behavior takes a bizarre turn. And that’s just one of many inexplicable occurrences.

Feeling distant from Layla, Leeds soon finds solace in Willow - another guest of the B&B with whom he forms a connection through their shared concerns. As his curiosity for Willow grows, his decision to help her find answers puts him in direct conflict with Layla’s well-being. Leeds soon realizes he has to make a choice because he can’t help both of them. But if he makes the wrong choice, it could be detrimental for all of them.

Critic reviews

“The audiobook is narrated by the late Brian Pallino, who provided distinct voices and powerfully reflected the emotions of the characters.” (Library Journal)

“Surprising and emotionally tense, this paranormal romance is sure to entertain.” (Publishers Weekly)

“The love between Leeds and Willow has a very appealing, slow build, while the many plot turns will keep readers guessing through to the shocking resolution.” (Booklist)

Was okay

Not a typical romance but feels like it’s dragging at times and can be hard to finish

ALMOST DNF this, good thing I didn’t!

My low emotional quotient made me almost DNF this, but out of respect to my favourite author I kept on reading….and I’m thankful I did. Different genre from her books that I read, but CoHo did it again!! As always!

Kudos to narrator Brian Pallino, really think he did a great job!

Mind. Blown. Read the whole review!

A few chapters in and I was enjoying this book. I’ll be honest though, a few more chapters later and I was wishing the story would hurry along a little. However, a few more chapters later and… well, all I can say is that the twists (yes, multiple) left me absolutely hooked and opened mouthed at times. A fantastic read, which I will definitely be recommending this to family and friends!

I adored this book. If you like a Hitchcock film this has got the vibes!

Great Reader

the reader was very good and had a good relaxing voice. The story started really well and then became a little ridiculous. Still a relatively good yarn but could have been so much more.
