Mary Rose Moreland and Simon Blake are the perfect couple: successful young professionals in Philadelphia, attractive, madly in love, and ready to start a life together. When they travel to England for Simon to ask her parents’ permission to marry Mary Rose, he learns an unsettling secret: Mary Rose disappeared when she was a little girl while the family was vacationing on a remote Scottish island. She reappeared mysteriously thirty-three days later in the exact same spot without a scratch on her and no memory of what had happened.

After Simon hears about this disturbing episode in Mary Rose’s childhood, he becomes obsessed with finding out what happened. He proceeds to launch his own investigation and arranges during their honeymoon for them to visit the island where she disappeared. But as Mary Rose’s behavior gets stranger after their engagement, the need for Simon to unlock the truth about her past grows even more urgent. What he uncovers is beyond his most terrifying fears.

  1. This book sounds really neat, but it’s hard to tell from the synopsis what kind of mystery it is. Paranormal? Psychopath? Something we’ll never actually know? Hard to say. Guess I’ll need to wait for someone I know to read and review it. 😉

  2. Ooh, is this based on the play by J.M. Barrie by any chance? It sounds like it is, and if so I’m very intrigued! I read the script and then saw an adaptation on stage earlier this year and liked it, but thought it could be developed a bit more, so maybe a novelised version would be the perfect way to do just that!
