No One Knows by J.T. Ellison #XOXperts


In an obsessive mystery as thrilling as The Girl on the Train and The Husband’s Secret, New York Times bestselling author J.T. Ellison will make you question every twist in her page-turning novel—and wonder which of her vividly drawn characters you should trust.

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 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? Was he murdered? Did he run away? And now, all this time later, who is the mysterious yet strangely familiar figure suddenly haunting her new life?

In No One Knows, the New York Times bestselling coauthor of the Nicholas Drummond series expertly peels back the layers of a complex woman who is hiding dark secrets beneath her unassuming exterior. This masterful thriller for fans of Gillian Flynn, Liane Moriarty, and Paula Hawkins will pull readers 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. 


Aubrey is a school teacher whose husband, Josh, has been missing for five years. The state of Tennessee finally declares Josh dead.  Aubrey cannot believe it. She feels deep down he is still alive and she cannot let go. 

Every single character in this novel is flawed and screwed up!! There is no hero or knight in shining armor. I think this is one of the main reasons this tale is so enthralling. Each character plays a unique part in the deception. 

The deceit and treachery running through this story really keep the reader riveted to the pages. Is he dead, is he alive, is he envolved in something??? The author did a great job keeping the outcome a secret. 

There were many times in the story I just KNEW I had it figured out. There were many scenerios floating around my thoughts. So, needless to say, the ending was a bit of a shocker. I had part of it figured out but not all. I am trying desperately not to give any spoilers away. So be prepared. 

A compelling tale indeed!! 

I received this novel from Simon and Schuster as an XOXpert
