International bestselling author Paullina Simons delivers a riveting novel about a young woman whose search for her missing friend turns into a life-shattering odyssey.

The truth will change her forever.

Living in bustling New York City, Lily Quinn has plenty of distractions and is struggling to finish college as well as pay her rent. But that all pales in comparison when Amy, her best friend and roommate, disappears without a trace.

Spencer O’Malley, a cynical NYPD detective assigned to Amy’s case, immediately captures Lily’s attention. Though he is wary and wrestling with his own demons, he, too, is irresistibly drawn to Lily.

But fate has more in store for Lily than she ever expected. As she looks deeper into the mystery surrounding Amy’s disappearance, Lily finds answers she never imagined she’d find—answers that challenge everything she knows about her own life.

Lily’s search puts her on a collision course with tragedy and love, and gives her a glimpse into the abyss that swallowed her friend . . . until she faces a final confrontation with her own life-changing destiny.

“Part mystery, part romance, part family drama . . . in other words, the perfect book.”—Daily Mail

Ohhh my goodness. Paullina Simons can do no wrong. She is absolutely one of my most favorite authors. The first book I read by her was, "The Bronze Horseman", which blew my whole world apart. It’s a life changing book and so was this book.

The one thing I will say about Paullina Simons’ books is, you have to have patience. Sometimes it takes a minute to get into the story but once you’re in, you will not put the book down. Her books become your whole life while reading. So, it was no surprise, I devoured this book.

Lily Quinn has a seriously rough time. She is a college student that barely has money to eat and has just enough to pay rent. If that weren’t bad enough, she finds out her boyfriend is a cheater and he leaves her, taking the bed they shared together. Now she has to figure a way to pay more for rent. If her worries weren’t stressful enough with those situations, her roommate goes missing. Oh my gosh, when I tell you to prepare yourself for one crazy ride, you better believe it.

In walks Detective Spencer O’Malley. He is in charge of Lily’s roommate’s case. This is where Paullina Simons is a mastermind. The chemistry/tension between these two is so completely off the charts.  It indescribable  how intense this book is.  Just so so so good.

I’m rating this book 4.5 stars because it was such a good book. It took me a little bit to get hooked but when I reached the hooked point, I was so slayed. I highly recommend this author and this book!
