Twelve years after the disappearance of his first love, Layla, Finn is engaged to Layla's sister, Ellen. Yet Finn has doubts about Ellen--doubts that turn into fears when someone from Finn's past reports that Layla is alive and hiding in plain sight.
Finn and Layla are young, in love, and on vacation. Driving along the highway, Finn stops at a service station to use the restroom. He locks the doors behind him; when he returns Layla is gone, never to be seen again. That is the story Finn told to the police ... Twelve years later Finn is engaged to Layla's sister, Ellen. His heart wants to believe that she is the one for him, even though a sixth sense tells him not to trust her. Then someone sees Layla, hiding in plain sight. Items from Layla's past keep turning up. If Layla is alive, and on Finn's trail, what does she want? -- adapted from back cover.

Agree that this is similar to Gone Girl, which I didn't like. I barely got through half of this book. The plot is totally implausible and the main characters, particularly Layla, are either vapid or in her case, wicked and self-absorbed. Total waste of time!

There's a major flaw in this book. The chasing around all the mind games could have ended in a day if the main character had installed a camera outside their home. How did this escape the author when the story is set after 2010 ???

Simplistic and at times silly, but most of all boring....first time I'd read something by this author, but likely the last!

Very unhappy with the last chapters, not realist with life.

I for one could not put this book down. Yes, there was a lot of back and forth but I enjoyed it all the way to the end.

Stopped reading after the first few chapters - reminded me a lot of Gone Girl which was horrid

I read "The Breakdown" and found the ending predictable and the story so-so. Despite this, I decided to give B.A. Paris another chance by reading her latest psychological thriller.
"Bring Me Back" had so much potential and the first few chapters were great, but things quickly went downhill because most of the novel was downright silly and difficult to believe. I can honestly say, however, that the ending was a surprise and perhaps redeemed the book.

Not her best work. This was written like a first time author, not a third novel expertise one. Storyline was not interesting. Ending fell flat. Only good thing was very short chapters, making this book a quick read.

Twist after twist in this book with a compelling lead character will leave you wondering, did he or didn't he? An English Gone Girl, it will leave you gasping after you read the last chapter.
