Book Review | Bring Me Back

bring me back

A young British couple are driving through France on holiday when they stop for gas. He runs in to pay, she stays in the car. When he returns her car door has been left open, but she’s not inside. No one ever sees her again.

Ten years later he’s engaged to be married; he’s happy, and his past is only a tiny part his life now. Until he comes home from work and finds his new wife-to-be is sitting on their sofa. She’s turning something over in her fingers, holding it up to the light. Something that would have no worth to anyone else, something only he and she would know about because his wife is the sister of his missing first love.

As more and more questions are raised, their marriage becomes strained. Has his first love somehow come back to him after all this time? Or is the person who took her playing games with his mind?

Last year I had heard a lot of hype around B.A Paris and her first book so when The Breakdown came out I made sure to get my hands on it and found myself disappointed. When I heard about Bring Me Back I decided to give it a shot hoping that the outcome would be better than the last one and I’m pleased to say that it was.

I felt like I was thrust straight into the heart of the story and the pace from then on was like an express train, it didn’t let up at all. This was helped greatly by how the story was set out, it switched between the present day twelve years after Layla’s disappearance and the past, the events that lead up to her disappearance. It gives the events of what happened in a trickle that really starts to build the suspense as you start to wonder what exactly happened between Layla and Finn.

From the beginning I was questioning everyone’s stories, Finn’s most of all, he is the kind of character that you just can’t figure out. You can always tell that he’s not being entirely honest and that really helps with the tension in the story, I was never sure if I should feel sorry for him or angry at him.

When I read The Breakdown I figured out what was going on pretty early on which did leave me a bit deflated but with Bring Me Back I felt like I kept predicting something only to find out that I was entirely wrong, and that I have an elaborate imagination. It feels like you are just about to get to the truth of what has happened and that excitement bubbles up only to be given another misdirection which just prolongs that feeling until you’re impatient to find out. I would never have guessed that ending!!

I definitely see what everyone has been raving about with this book it is gripping, will have you flipping the pages easily and on the edge of your seat. I’m looking forward to the next.
