Confessions on the 7:45

By: Lisa Unger

People didn’t fall in love with other people. They fell in love with how other people made them feel about themselves. And so, it was easy to get someone to love you—if you knew how they wanted to feel.”

Finally!!! A book that, while it does go back in time, makes you feel like you’re reading a flowing story! Every single book I’ve read lately has one chapter in the present, the next in the past, and it keeps going like that.

Selena Murphy missed her normal train home, and thus, she has to take the later train. It is on this train that Selena meets a beautiful woman named Martha. Martha tells her that she’s been sleeping with her boss, and in turn, Selena confesses that she believes her husband is having an affair with the nanny, Geneva. The train then stops at Selena’s station, and the two women say goodbye.

Soon thereafter, the nanny disappears. Where did the nanny go? Who is repsonsible for her disappearance. Everyone seems to hold a piece of the answer, and no one is outright saying anything.

I really enjoyed this book. I was a little weary because I didn’t LOVE the last book I read of hers. But this one was so much better! The pages just flowed and I couldn’t stop reading. The author kept you guessing until she wanted you to figure something out.

What I enjoyed the most is that I haven’t read something like this before. This idea of con men/women isn’t new, but how it plays out in this books is, at least for me.

I would highly recommend reading this book! You can purchase it here.
