Book Review: B.A. Paris’s ‘Bring Me Back’

A Marmite book that initially comes off as Best Day Ever-turns-Gone Girl.

It’s actually the story of a man whose fiancée-to-be disappeared twelve years ago and was presumed dead five years ago; but now that he’s engaged to marry her sister, the fiancée-to-be is lurking in the shadows, forcing him to choose between them.

Another mind game like Behind Closed Doors, but lacking that originality. As with The Breakdown, the author takes what’s been done before (hence my having worked this one out at around 25%) and — cleverly, but not altogether convincingly here — makes it her own.

Despite knowing the outcome, I found it to be A HIGHLY ADDICTIVE, FAST-PACED READ and recommend it to beachgoers who aren’t fluent in the language of psychological thrillers.
