(2 customer reviews)



Book Summary

Finn and Layla are young, in love, and on vacation. They’re driving along the highway when Finn decides to stop at a service station to use the restroom. He hops out of the car, locks the doors behind him, and goes inside. When he returns Layla is gone – never to be seen again. That is the story Finn told to the police. But it is not the whole story.

Ten years later Finn is engaged to Layla’s sister, Ellen. Their shared grief over what happened to Layla drew them close and now they intend to remain together. Still, there’s something about Ellen that Finn has never fully understood. His heart wants to believe that she is the one for him…even though a sixth sense tells him not to trust her.

Then, not long before he and Ellen are to be married, Finn gets a phone call. Someone from his past has seen Layla – hiding in plain sight. There are other odd occurrences: Long-lost items from Layla’s past that keep turning up around Finn and Ellen’s house. Emails from strangers who seem to know too much. Secret messages, clues, warnings. If Layla is alive – and on Finn’s trail – what does she want? And how much does she know?

A tour de force of psychological suspense, Bring Me Back will have you questioning everything and everyone until its stunning climax.

    Remember when everyone was screaming about Behind Closed Doors last year? And then soon after, Paris came out with The Breakdown and that also brought about a lot of discussion? I know there’s a lot of mixed thoughts on both of these books and I have a feeling the same is going to happen with this one. I absolutely fell in love with Behind Closed Doors, read it in one sitting and the ending gave me literal chills. Then The Breakdown fell slightly flat for me. This one fell right in between these two and let me tell you why.

    The concept isn’t something that is very new to this type of genre: Guy loves woman. Woman goes missing and is said to be dead after so many years. Guy falls in love with said woman’s sister. Past comes back to haunt them. It’s the execution that makes this a fun read. Paris keeps her chapters short and hanging so you continuously keep turning the pages until you realize you’ve just finished the whole damn book. Genius. For this particular story, I caught on fairly early what the twist was going to be …. well, mostly. The twist ended up being a little bit of a different variation to what I was thinking but the same concept was there.

    I did find myself getting utterly annoyed with the characters but I expect I’m supposed to. Again, COMMUNICATION people!! But when it comes to matters of the heart, communication is usually nowhere to be found (when things start to go haywire anyways). I think what got me in this story line is that even though I was certain where the book was going, as the main character kept questioning himself, I found myself doing the same…. I needed to know. Am I right? Am I wrong? DO I CARE either way?

    There is definitely going to be some divisiveness with this book amongst the thriller readers, I think. As a shorter novel, there wasn’t as much character development as in her other two books and does lull a bit in the middle. What worked for me, and why I ended up loving this more than I had initially though I would, is an ending that’s not so happy. And that’s not ruining anything, folks. You’ll need to read to find out why and decide for yourself. B.A. Paris, you have a fan in me. AUTO BUY AUTO BUY AUTO BUY

    B A Paris is one of my all time favorite authors. This one is WEIRD, sometimes it works for me and sometimes it doesn’t. This time it worked. Could I be biased? Maybe. But if you are obsessed with this author and haven’t read this one, you must! If you are new to her then I recommend starting with Behind Closed Doors. Once you get through this one I would say this is my second favorite, it does require the ability to suspend belief. I found the ending chilling.
