Publication Date: October 6, 2020
Publisher: Park Row Books
From master of suspense Lisa Unger comes a riveting thriller about a chance encounter that unravels a stunning web of lies and deceit.
Be careful to whom you tell your darkest secrets…
Selena Murphy is commuting home from her job in the city when the train stalls out on the tracks. She strikes up a conversation with a beautiful stranger in the next seat, and their connection is fast and easy. The woman introduces herself as Martha and confesses that she’s been stuck in an affair with her boss. Selena, in turn, confesses that she suspects her husband is sleeping with the nanny. When the train arrives at Selena’s station, the two women part ways, presumably never to meet again.
But days later, Selena’s nanny disappears.
Soon Selena finds her once-perfect life upended. As she is pulled into the mystery of the missing nanny, and as the fractures in her marriage grow deeper, Selena begins to wonder, who was Martha really? But she is hardly prepared for what she’ll discover.
Expertly plotted and reminiscent of the timeless classic Strangers on a Train, Confessions on the 7:45 is a gripping thriller about the delicate facades we create around our lives.
Miss W’s Review:
Confessions on the 7:45 by Lisa Unger is honestly one of the best books I have ever read.
This is a TWISTY read that I could not put down. The plot is precise and intricate with multiple characters. The story is told alternating between the past and the present.
Two women meet on a train and share secrets. The story alternates between the perspective of Selena and Martha.
This thriller has a story within a story! Not everything is as it seems and twist after twist is thrown at you. The characters are complex, complicated and so well fleshed out that they will leave you speechless.
The story is EVERYTHING you want in a thriller. You will be thrown off your reading chair in disbelief after reading this one!
Go out and get this book now!!!!
Until the next chapter,
