I love J.T. Ellison. She never disappoints. 
This is a very well told psychological thriller. All the characters seem to have a touch of craziness. This book chronicles the lives of Josh and Aubrey, from their first meeting as children to their happily ever, which is taken away from them too soon. Totally recommend.

After reading a few chapters, I decided this book held no interest for me at this time nor was it a good fit for my blog.  I elected not to finish the book now, but it may well be a case of "the wrong book at the wrong time" syndrome and I might be willing to try it again in the future.  Thank you to Gallery, Threshold, Pocket Books and NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to sample this title.

Yes, this book definitely fit the psychological thriller category. I was pretty much sucked into the story quickly although none of the characters really connected with me.

Wow, this book had many twists and turns. More than I think I've ever come across. There weren't many characters so someone had to know something they weren't telling. I couldn't figure it out. The chapters flipped back and forth from Aubrey today to Aubrey past.

Finally after almost finishing 70 chapters, I hit the shocker that the author threw in. Wow, I never saw that happening in a million years!! Other than feeling that the ending was a bit rushed, I enjoyed the book very much.

* I was provided an ARC to read from the publisher and NetGalley. It was my decision to read and review this book.

A well told psychological thriller. All the characters seem to have a touch of crazy. This story chronicles the lives of Josh and Aubrey from their meeting as children to their happily ever after that is snatched away from them too soon.

A few years ago, Gone Girl kicked off a huge trend that’s been reverberating through fiction ever since it was published. It’s not just using the word “girl” in the title (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is probably responsible for that one), but the use of unreliable narrators that prevent the reader from figuring out the mystery before the book ends. If the protagonist’s very words cannot be trusted, how can the reader possibly get ahead of her?

Aubrey Hamilton's husband disappeared five years ago. She was charged with his "murder" and then released, 
 but nobody knows if he is really dead or if he just vanished 

I was quite shocked by the ending of this novel but I really enjoyed it. It is a book which has all the right twisty, disturbing, dysfunctional characters and the plot is fabulous

Ellison is one of my favorite authors, and while I didn't like this one as much as the books in her two series, I did enjoy it. 

No One Knows has characters that are very interesting and a storyline with some twists and turns. I was kept on the edge of my seat by the engrossing plot.

At first there are a lot of fellow-female support feelings for Aubrey, the main character. She has some closure finally after her missing, but presumed dead husband has finally been ruled dead by the State. Unfortunately she was accused of murdering him prior and had that struggle to deal with, along with all the emotions and the wondering of what exactly happened to Josh initially.  This is how the reader feels throughout the book WHAT HAPPENED???  Wait, but it’s not in a “I am lost, what is going on” way, but more of a... “Oh my, this is so mysterious, I am on the edge of my seat” way! . The characters are very likable and you can connect to them easily and realistically.  This book by J.T. Ellison definitely has the plot twists and the ah-ha moments, that you would expect going in.  My latest reading obsession is one for psychological thrillers and this is one that was written superbly!

This novel was crazy and full of one bonkers plot twist after another. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. The author knows how to weave together a suspenseful tale in a way that has you desperately turning the pages to discover what mental event will occur next. The characters were likeable, and then not, and I felt the author pulling me in all kinds of directions. Let's face it, it doesn't seem like the most realistic plot, but I could see someone attempting this on one of those true crime programmes you see on TV, so I was swept up in the madness of it all. 

It's a novel that keeps you on your toes. So if you enjoy being constantly surprised and thinking "What the hell? How is that possible?" then this is the book for you!

A well deserved 5 stars. A real page turner of a book. Gripping, with so many twists and turns to keep you guessing all the way through!

This is a twisty tale that kept me reading and kept me on my feet.  I really felt the writing was strong in the beginning, but the ending felt rushed.

First, I'd like to thank Netgalley and Gallery, Threshold, Pocket Books for the ebook!

The story seemed promising, the character were quite well written, I really felt for Aubrey and though I was in for a ride. 

Well, it was more of a back and forward, what with all the flashbacks! But flasbacks can be good, cause they bring some better understanding of a situation, or a context. So I was happy to read them, as they let me appreciate Aubrey. 

Some stuff seemed quite strange though: the fact that nobody saw Josh at the wedding was a bit of a stretch for me. The wedding was quite far away, they arrived together, people saw her but not him and if he wasn't there, nobody asked her where he was... sure.

And then, just as I was enjoying the story, I felt cheated! I do love a good twist but not easy ones. And some explanation and twists were too much deja-vu for my taste. And the more I read the more I was "gosh, the author didn't use that trick too!" but he did.

A page turning thriller, that delivers. It is somewhat similar to the Girl on the Train, and Gone Girl in the type of narrator. I really enjoyed the book, but the last 10% was not what I expected and seemed to be a little far fetched. Despite that, I still thought it was a good, fast read. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. All views are my own.
