Ghosted by Rosie Walsh (PCGBooks, $24.99) was not what I was expecting.

Walsh did a great job of instantly pulling you into the story about Sarah and Eddie, dropping hints but slamming you with a story line that I didn’t see coming.

Walsh alludes you to a tragedy from Sarah’s past, but it isn’t the focus of the story. It’s important and likely shaped the person Sarah became – a strong woman, a good friend and a caring person – but the main story was about how she and Eddie meet expectantly and fall instantly in love, spending six days together, talking and being happy in each other’s company and silence. The pair share a connection and both promise they want to be together when Eddie returns from his holiday. But Eddie never calls and basically disappears, leaving Sarah convinced something has happened to him.

“Minutes, days, weeks go by as Sarah becomes increasingly worried. But then she discovers she’s right. There is a reason for Eddie’s disappearance, and it’s the one thing they didn’t share with each other: the truth.”

I can’t say anything else, but I will say it was a quick read, a page turner and a middle I didn’t see coming.
