When Hannah Hall receives a note from her husband that says "Protect her", she knows that Owen is referring to his sixteen-year-old daughter Bailey. Phone calls to Owen go unanswered. Hannah learns that her husband's boss has been arrested for financial fraud and the FBI want to talk to Owen. Hannah quickly discovers that there are many things about his past that her husband never told her.

Hannah and Bailey do not have the best relationship, but Hannah is determined to protect Bailey and find out why her husband has suddenly disappeared. Hannah and Bailey dig into Owen's past and uncover more than they bargained for.

This book was told from Hannah's point-of-view. I would call this book a domestic mystery. There really wasn't any suspense to the story. The pacing was very slow. I kept waiting for something exciting to happen, but it never did. Maybe I missed something when I was listening to the audiobook, because I still had questions at the end of the book. My rating: 3 Stars.

Hannah Hall thinks she's found the love of her life until he disappears. Owen Michaels leaves Hannah a note that says, "Protect her." The note refers to Owen's sixteen-year-old daughter, Bailey, who lost her mother tragically as a child and wants absolutely nothing to do with her new stepmother. Hannah quickly realizes her husband isn't who he said he was and Bailey may hold the key to figuring out Owen's true identity and why he disappeared. The characters felt real and believable and the plot was very intriguing with lots of twists and turns. The story was told in first person by Hannah and had me hooked from the very beginning. It alternated between the past and the present. It will not be my last read by Laura Dave as I enjoyed her writing. If you like domestic thrillers then I am sure you will enjoy this book.

This book starts out with a good premise, but it takes so long to get to the point, the last 1/3 seems to drag.
