BRING ME BACK by B.A.PARIS #BlogTour #BookReview


A young British couple are driving through France on holiday when they stop for gas. He runs in to pay, she stays in the car. When he returns her car door has been left open, but she's not inside. No one ever sees her again. 

Ten years later he's engaged to be married; he's happy, and his past is only a tiny part his life now. Until he comes home from work and finds his new wife-to-be is sitting on their sofa. She's turning something over in her fingers, holding it up to the light. Something that would have no worth to anyone else, something only he and she would know about because his wife is the sister of his missing first love.

As more and more questions are raised, their marriage becomes strained. Has his first love somehow come back to him after all this time? Or is the person who took her playing games with his mind?

B.A. Paris has done it again!!! Having devoured her previous books I was unsure whether another book could make me stay on the sofa reading from start to finish - this one did exactly that!! And what a ride of a read it is! It had me swearing at characters, shocked, disturbed and the next time I see a russian doll I'm going to feel a little unnerved!!

The book starts with a flashback to 12 years ago and the disappearance of Layla while away with her partner Finn in France. He left the car at a service station and she was gone when he got back. But the story he told the police wasn't the entire truth and we begin to find out what really happened that night as the story unfolds.

His life now is settled - he's doing well in business and is engaged to be married to Ellen, Layla's sister! But the past is about to make an unwelcome return to his present life and what follows is a pulsating page turner as cracks begin to appear in his controlling persona and the truth of what happened that night Layla went missing becomes clearer.

This book was so cleverly written as I had my mind changed a number of times as to where it was going, who to trust and just what the frig was going on! I love the fact that the unlikeable characters - namely Finn! - were made to feel threatened and scared by what was unfolding around him. His whole outlook on life was to be in control and you see that when he loses that he doesn't know how to act. 

Having the story told by Finn and Layla, in the past and the present was also a massive help in building the tension and intrigue and made for a truly addictive reading experience!! It looks back on how they met and the impact that had on one another in the short time they were together before that trip.

The phrase 'just one more chapter' never seems to work for a B.A. Paris book!! Once you start you just can't stop reading!! Highly recommended!

Thank you to the publishers for the advance copy in return for a fair and honest review.
