Blurb from Goodreads

The day Adam Dunne's girlfriend, Sarah, fails to return from a Barcelona business trip, his perfect life begins to fall apart. Days later, the arrival of her passport and a note that reads "I'm sorry--S" sets off real alarm bells. He vows to do whatever it takes to find her.

Adam is puzzled when he connects Sarah to a cruise ship called the Celebrate--and to a woman, Estelle, who disappeared from the same ship in eerily similar circumstances almost exactly a year before.

To get answers, Adam must confront some difficult truths about his relationship with Sarah. He must do things of which he never thought himself capable. And he must try to outwit a predator who seems to have found the perfect hunting ground ...

My Review

Sarah is giving Adam time to work on his script, the biggest break of his career and it has been a long slog. Sarah is away on a business trip and keeping contact to a minimum, until that is no contact and her passport appears home with a very brief note. Adam starts looking into his girlfriends disappearance until he is consumed with it, Sarah loved him, she wouldn't leave him would she?

The storyline jumps about a wee bit characters, Adam, Romain (a child who death and bad luck seems to follow) and Corrine a maid aboard the beautiful and luxurious cruise ship. All seemingly unconnected, layers unraveling as the reader is pulled in. Tense, not knowing where the stories are going and from the get go wanting to know what has happened to Sarah and just how much do you know about your partner. What would you do and how far would you go to find the person you love, even if you discovered secrets about them along the way. 3.5/5 for me this time, this was my first dance with this author, I look forward to reading more by her!
