Seven perfect days. Then he disappeared. A love story with a secret at its heart.

When Sarah meets Eddie, they connect instantly and fall in love. To Sarah, it seems as though her life has finally begun. And it's mutual: It's as though Eddie has been waiting for her, too. Sarah has never been so certain of anything. So when Eddie leaves for a long-booked vacation and promises to call from the airport, she has no cause to doubt him. But he doesn't call.

Sarah's friends tell her to forget about him, but she can't. She knows something's happened--there must be an explanation.

Minutes, days, weeks go by as Sarah becomes increasingly worried. But then she discovers she's right. There is a reason for Eddie's disappearance, and it's the one thing they didn't share with each other: the truth.

My Takeaway

The wording on the book cover, “Seven perfect days. Then he disappeared” had me eager to get my hands on Ghosted. The first half of the book had me somewhat amused and interested but afterward, I was asking myself, “is this the same book and author?” I felt the story dragged on way too long and at times the plot moved slower than molasses. I wanted to like this book, but there were just too many coincidences, which made the story too unrealistic for me. Though many readers have absolutely loved this book, it missed the mark for me.

Thank you to Pamela Dorman Books and Edelweiss for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
