Title: Bring Me Back
Author: B.A. Paris
Genre: Psychological Thriller
Publication Date: 2018
On the way back from a ski trip in France, Finn and Layla make a quick stop at a service station so Finn could use the rest room. However, once he returns to the car, Layla is nowhere to be found. After searching all around for her, he decides to go to the next service station so he can contact the police. At least this is the story he tells the police, but this is not the whole story.
Ten years later Finn is engaged to Ellen, Layla’s sister. There has been no news on what happened to Layla all those years ago, but Ellen has never suspected Finn was involved as many others have.
One day out of the blue a small Russian doll shows up at the house identical to the one that both Layla and Ellen used to have as children. There are only three people who know about the history of the Russian dolls, so is Layla alive or is there something more sinister going on?
Bring Me Back is my first B.A. Paris book, though I have a few others on my TBR, and I must confess that I was impressed. It is told through multiple perspectives, Layla and Finn, and multiple timelines, before and after Layla disappeared.
This was one twisty thrill ride where you really don’t know who to trust, who is telling the truth. While I did figure out the ending before I got there, I did find myself looking in several different directions along the way. Paris did a good job with misdirection in this one.
I would recommend this for those looking for a dark, twisted psychological thriller. I am looking forward to digging into the other Paris books sitting on my TBR shelf.
Thank you to St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley for the copy of this book
