Staff Reviews

I couldn't put down this combination thriller/love story. It has twists and turns that are unexpected abs characters who I cared about. The main character, Emma, has a secret that she wants to tell her husband about but can't figure out how to do it. In the meantime, her husband, Leo, stumbles into information that makes him realize his wife is not the person he thought she was.  This book reminded me of Laura Daves’ The Last Thing He Told Me, another GGP favorite.

“Rosie Walsh’s The Love of My Life is my favorite kind of thriller—gripping, heartbreaking and impossible to put down.”—Laura Dave

A dazzling supernova of a book, it picks you up on line one and doesn't let you go until the very end. Each chapter is filled with heart-breaking twists and revelations, and it is brimming with human warmth and intelligence.”
—Lisa Jewell

“Combining the gripping pace of a psychological thriller with the tenderness and sorrow of a love story gone wrong, this one’s a winner.”

I have held you at night for ten years and I didn't even know your name. We have a child together. A dog, a house.
Who are you?

From the New York Times bestselling author of Ghosted comes an up-all-night page-turner that has “cleverly integrated twists that not even jaded readers will be able to predict…"*

Emma loves her husband Leo and their young daughter Ruby: she’d do anything for them. But almost everything she's told them about herself is a lie.

And she might just have got away with it, if it weren’t for her husband’s job. Leo is an obituary writer; Emma a well-known marine biologist. When she suffers a serious illness, Leo copes by doing what he knows best – researching and writing about his wife’s life. But as he starts to unravel the truth, he discovers the woman he loves doesn’t really exist. Even her name isn’t real.

When the very darkest moments of Emma’s past finally emerge, she must somehow prove to Leo that she really is the woman he always thought she was . . .

But first, she must tell him about the other love of her life.
