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?
Bring Me Back starts off strong and doesn’t let up till the end. It takes us through Finn and Layla’s history and the present. Layla went missing while going on holiday. It’s been 12 years now, no trace of her still. That is until the little Russian dolls start showing up. Creepy right!
Those Russian dolls are something that only Finn, Layla and her sister Emma knew about. Now they ar being left for Finn and Emma. What do they mean? What purpose do they serve after all these years after Layla went missing? Or maybe, they are being left to taunt Fiin and his fiancé.
The story is told to us by Finn from before Layla’s disappearance, and the present. Finn gives us all the clues a little at a time. He seemed to be a realistic character as well as Emma. It’s been years now, he and Emma both are trying to move on from the past, together. They’ve fell in love, but is it real or out of grief? This just adds to the already looming questions.
The story kept me turning the pages, so many questions, too many coincidences and what do they mean. This kept me engaged from the start until the ending which brought me some disappointment. While it was a good little twist, I felt like it took away from the story as a whole.
Overall, this was a pretty good little mystery, it was intense and eerie in places which I always look for when reading a psychological thriller, and I do believe that fans of this genre will like this one.
