If you liked the mystery part of Gone Girl but were less a fan of the characters involved, this is the disappearing wife thriller for you! Hawkins' debut sounds similar to Flynn's blockbuster on paper - she brings us the inner workings of flawed female characters through multiple POV narration - but the novel has an entirely different feel in execution. It's a rollicking, satisfying ride from start to finish, and I devoured each of its well-earned twists and turns. -Jenni's January Staff Pick, 2015

EVERY DAY THE SAME
Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and night. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She's even started to feel like she knows them. Jess and Jason, she calls them. Their life--as she sees it--is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.
And then she sees something shocking. It's only a minute until the train moves on, but it's enough. Now everything's changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel goes to the police. But is she really as unreliable as they say? Soon she is deeply entangled not only in the investigation but in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?
