Publisher's Summary

The day Aubrey Hamilton's husband is declared dead by the state of Tennessee should bring closure so she can move on with her life. But Aubrey doesn't want to move on. She just wants Josh back. It's been five years since he disappeared, since their blissfully happy marriage - they were happy, weren't they? - screeched to a halt and Aubrey became the prime suspect in his disappearance. Five years of emptiness, solitude, loneliness, questions. Why didn't Josh show up at his friend's bachelor party? Who anonymously sent Aubrey her favorite cocktail at the bar where Josh stood her up? Was he murdered? Did he run away? And now, all this time later, who is the mysterious and strangely familiar figure suddenly haunting her new life?

As her heroine faces the possibility that everything she thinks she knows about herself, her marriage, and her husband is a lie, New York Times best-selling author J.T. Ellison expertly peels back the layers of a complex woman who is hiding dark secrets beneath her unassuming exterior. In a masterful thriller for listeners who love Gillian Flynn, Liane Moriarty, and Paula Hawkins, Ellison pulls you into a you'll-never-guess merry-go-round of danger and deception. Round and round and round it goes, where it stops...no one knows.

This book is so bad

I kept listening just because I couldn't find another book to replace it with and a lot of time to fill packing and moving so I needed something, but I regret every minute of it. This book was so bad it made me angry to listen to it. The dialogue is weak, the relationships are unbelievable, the characters are a joke and the story is not only ill conceived but all over the place...pick a direction, a plot, a story line!! Don't waste your time with this book. I don't understand how the author is a New York Times best selling author because he/she struggles with the basics like character and plot development. It's like a talented middle schooler wrote this book.

Redundant, prolonged story line.

This novel had great potential but never made it. The storyline unnecessarily dragged on for hours without progressing the plot. Ultimately none of the main characters are very likable.

Unlike several other reviewers I didn't mind the ending. However I would have enjoyed the book more if the repetitiveness was edited out.

Crazy bad plot

This book came up as a 'recommended' selection for me. I listened to the preview and thought, "hey that's not to shabby". So after reading the great reviews, I thought I'd give this a try.

First impression... Ellison can write. I have encountered few authors that can carry a story along through prose as well as Ellison. Its effortless. I'd equate this not to a literary master, but James Patterson or Harlan Coben. The can of book that just flows.

So why am I bashing this book so hard? The plot is AWFUL. Its ridiculous beyond comprehension. I can't go into detail without spoiling the story for you. But man almighty. Skip this story if you want any semblance of intelligence in what you listen to. If you are into light romance and plot is secondary as a concern, this might be just what you are looking for.

Preposterous

Turns in the plot are totally unsupported. Awkward, psychologically ridiculous characters and events. Maudlin dialogue. I won't be reading/listening to this author again.

I still don't know...

The writer's attempts to save twists for the reader lead to confusing, inconsistent characters. You will spend over 12 hours getting to know them only to be left with a vague "why would they do that?" feeling in the end. I was very surprised by the ending but not in a satisfying way. I was surprised that it ended so flat.

Not great but not bad-

I bought this on a whim because it sounded like an interesting mystery. There were definitely some surprises as the author dished out information in bits and pieces but some key parts of the plot were not very believable which is why I only gave it 3 stars. Not a complete waste of time but nothing to rave about either. Some real soap opera elements and some bodice-ripping sex that didn't do much for the plot. It could have been a lot better with less of the soap opera drama - but I suppose it could have been worse.

Who Dun It that drags a bit

The book really drags in parts and the back and forth needed better editing. The "surprise" ending left a few undone nits. There were also a few characters left out in the wind that made me feel left undone. Overall ok but not a top recommendation.

OMG! This Book Is Amazing! No One Knows Is Right.

I had so much fun reading this book. No one knows is a perfect title since I didn't know either till the end. I had to go back and reread a few chapters so I could laugh at how naïve I was. Great Book!!!

An Enjoyable Disappointment

The explanation of Josh's disappearance was a disappointment. The story was enjoyable and the narration was very good. The pace, and structure of the story is what made the book " just okay" for me. The pace was steady but slow at times. Using flashbacks can be very effective and intriguing. It was intriguing at first but the author used them to prolong the story.

Hard to Rate this One

If you could sum up No One Knows in three words, what would they be?

Keeps You Guessing

What did you like best about this story?

Lots of twists and turns - and people I enjoyed disliking.

Have you listened to any of Teri Schnaubelt and Nick Podehl ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No - but I thought the performance was well done.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No it was much too long for that.

Any additional comments?

I had guessed the ending so I wish it had a final twist that I didn't see coming.
