Publisher's Summary

Carly Holbrook and Brian Westbury are weeks away from their high school graduation. The young couple plans to marry before they head to college, and their future seems bright with promise. Everything changes one spring night when their six closest friends, including Brian's younger brother, are killed in a fiery car accident that Carly and Brian witness. The trauma leaves Carly unable to speak, and Brian is forced to make unimaginable decisions about a future that once seemed so certain. With Carly incapable of going forward with their plans, Brian leaves home - and Carly - for good. Fifteen years later, disturbing new clues indicate the accident that wrecked so many lives wasn't an accident at all, bringing Brian home to face a past - and a love - he's never forgotten.

Emotionally wrenching...FANTASTIC writing!!

I LOVED this book! What a beautiful, tragic, moving story. Marie Force truly knows how to play on your emotions, taking you to the lowest low and bringing you back to pinnacle. This is a love story with a HUGE whodunnit, but it also covers the impact that the wreck (the tradgedy that spurns the whodunnit) has on not just hero/heroine, but the community, the families of those involved...but in such a great way you're contstantly immersed in the story. I didn't want to turn this one for a second, I just wanted the story keep going. The narration was fabulous!!
Nothing about this wasn't a WIN!!

Incredible romantic suspense!

This book, in true Marie Force style has a little of everything..romance, suspense, sadness, angst, and hot sex. Going from high school to their thirties, we were able to see Brian and Holly deal with the death of their best friends in completely different ways. The frustration that was felt by both was evident throughout and when they finally came back together, even when in danger, you let loose a huge sigh of relief. The plot twists in this book kept me completely surprised, and the ending was a complete shocker!

Holly Fielding as always gave an incredible performance in the audio version.

Great thriller & mystery

Couldn't stop listening. Every time I though I knew who it was, I'd change my mind by the next chapter. Loved it. I could swear the narrator was a man and a woman.

Not plausible to me

While the Wreck was well written and some of the characters were interesting, the main plot just didn't seem plausible to me. Someone who is traumatized by witnessing a violent event does not "snap out of it" 15 years later, and suddenly act and feel normal. People can & do recover from many difficult experiences but usually it's a gradual process the involves counseling and setbacks. This story had potential but .....

Disappointing at best

I’ve read AND loved every single Marie Force book I’ve ever read or listened to. Figured I’d most certainly love yet another. The story itself would’ve and could’ve been told as a short story. Dragged on forever.
What a disappointment. Made the main female character Carley seem so weak and unable to think for herself! Annoying. The final plot was very anticlimactic at best. I’m seriously bummed about the story. Bummed about wasting a credit too. The overall story wasn’t horrible. Sad at times but not bad. Just wouldn’t recommend. As for narrator…? She just sounded bored! No matter the topic, character she wasn’t very good. At all! So sorry. I know from my profession the importance of referrals but I had to be honest. Read/listen at you’re own risk / credit. Marianne

Love the story!

I Love Marie’s books. However, I had to listen to this at 1.3 speed, this is not my favorite narrator.

The wreck

This was an enjoyable book with a mystery to be solved and a romance. It is a small town story with interesting characters.

Just ok

I love Marie Force and I wish I read the book instead of listening. I think the narrator ruined it for me. I finally turned up the speed on the narration and that helped a bit.
