Confessions on the 7:45 by Lisa Unger

Be careful to whom you tell your darkest secrets… Confessions on the 7:45 by Lisa Unger.

From master of suspense Lisa Unger comes a riveting thriller about a chance encounter that unravels a stunning web of lies and deceit.

Be careful to whom you tell your darkest secrets…

Selena Murphy is commuting home from her job in the city when the train stalls out on the tracks. She strikes up a conversation with a beautiful stranger in the next seat, and their connection is fast and easy. The woman introduces herself as Martha and confesses that she’s been stuck in an affair with her boss. Selena, in turn, confesses that she suspects her husband is sleeping with the nanny. When the train arrives at Selena’s station, the two women part ways, presumably never to meet again.

But days later, Selena’s nanny disappears.

Soon Selena finds her once-perfect life upended. As she is pulled into the mystery of the missing nanny, and as the fractures in her marriage grow deeper, Selena begins to wonder, who was Martha really? But she is hardly prepared for what she’ll discover.

Expertly plotted and reminiscent of the timeless classic Strangers on a Train, Confessions on the 7:45 is a gripping thriller about the delicate facades we create around our lives.

Selena is seeing her life change before her. With a nannycam that shows a cheating husband, Selena isn’t sure who she’s more disappointed in – her husband or her nanny. And while she knows that her husband has had issues for a while, she thought that they had gotten past those issues.

When Selena misses her first train and hops on the next, only to be delayed, she doesn’t expect to strike up a conversation with a complete stranger. Little does she know that this conversation will come back to haunt her.

With a missing nanny and a husband she just can’t trust, Selena will have to figure out how to put her life back together.

Everyone has a secret and everyone is willing to protect their family. Who has the most to lose? Where did the nanny go and what does this mystery woman have to do with her life falling apart?

While this story is told from multiple viewpoints, it’s Selena’s that spoke the most for me. You’ll try to figure out what’s happening and where all the parts are moving to. It’s like a chess game. You’ll have to think three or four moves ahead.

I enjoyed the plot, but overall, the story kind of fell a little flat for me. I think I was expecting more danger or something. So while I enjoyed the book, it didn’t wow me.
