Bring Me Back by B.A. Paris - Book Review

"Bring Me Back" by B.A. Paris is a thriller that follows a man named Finn. At the beginning of the book, Finn is recounting how his girlfriend Layla disappeared after a fight that they had. No one can find her, and that is still the case when the book resumes about a decade or so later. In present day, Finn is dating a woman named Ellen, who is actually Layla's sister ( yeah, kinda weird.) They are both pretty spooked when signs of Layla start appearing in their lives. Finn especially because he is also secretly receiving some spooky emails as well. All of this leaves them both wondering if maybe Layla is actually still alive, maybe someone is holding her hostage, they really aren't sure who these "Layla signs" could be coming from. This book was a pretty big bummer for me - somewhere between two and three stars, just depending on my mood. But here's the thing about this author, even when this book was unbelievable and I was rolling my eyes, like - are you serious!? - she still managed to give me goosebumps. So, I'll still be reading her next book!
