The day Aubrey Hamilton’s husband is declared dead by the state of Tennessee should bring closure so she can move on with her life. But Aubrey doesn’t want to move on; she wants Josh back. It’s been five years since he disappeared, since their blissfully happy marriage—they were happy, weren’t they?—screeched to a halt and Aubrey became the prime suspect in his disappearance. Five years of emptiness, solitude, loneliness, questions. Why didn’t Josh show up at his friend’s bachelor party? Was he murdered? Did he run away? And now, all this time later, who is the mysterious yet strangely familiar figure suddenly haunting her new life?

In No One Knows, the New York Times bestselling coauthor of the Nicholas Drummond series expertly peels back the layers of a complex woman who is hiding dark secrets beneath her unassuming exterior. This masterful thriller for fans of Gillian Flynn, Liane Moriarty, and Paula Hawkins will pull readers into a you’ll-never-guess merry-go-round of danger and deception. Round and round and round it goes, where it stops…no one knows. 

My Thoughts…

Have you ever read a book and known where it was heading?   Yet even knowing where it was heading you had no clue how it could possibly get there. This is that book.    I could see where J.T. Ellison was taking me, I could feel the anticipation of getting there, but I was so incredibly clueless on how I could possibly be taken there.    This book is quite a ride.  Hold on tight!  

Coming to terms with the mysterious disappearance of your husband and having him declared dead is just mind boggling to me.     How could a man just poof be gone?   Where would he go?   Was he dead?     This is Aubrey’s life.   Every day she has to deal with this over and over again.  I felt for Audrey.   How do you live like that?    As she starts to move on with her life I want to cheer.    The life insurance policy is paying out, which is not what she wants, but I could see how it would change her life and not necessarily for the good.    She meets Chase, who seems too familiar, yet is becoming a good friend to her.   

No One Knows kept me up at night.   It is a thriller with a psychological twist.    I kept guessing, J.T. Elliot kept giving me clues but were they the clues to the right answer or just another twist?   I didn’t see the ending coming.    Boy, am I glad that I didn’t.     It was absolutely amazing!   

I cannot recommend enough that you pick up a copy of No One Knows immediately!    It is a must read book for 2016.
