I'm also joining in Book Beginnings on Friday. It's hosted by Rose City Reader.

I just started reading this one.   The excerpts are from the E-ARC.


All Our Little Secrets


She watched.  That was her gift.  To disappear into the black, sink into the shadows behind and between.  That's where you really saw things for what they were, when people revealed their true natures.  Everyone was on broadcast these days, thrusting out versions of themselves, cropped and filtered for public consumption.  Everyone putting on the "show of me."  It was when people were alone, unobserved, that the mask came off.
From 56% on my Kindle...

"This one still thinks he's going to save the world.  One cold case at a time."

Synopsis from Goodreads: 

From master of suspense Lisa Unger comes a riveting thriller about a chance encounter that unravels a stunning web of lies and deceit.

Everyone has a secret… Now she knows yours.

Selena Murphy is commuting home from her job in the city when the train stalls out on the tracks. She strikes up a conversation with a beautiful stranger in the next seat, and their connection is fast and easy. The woman introduces herself as Martha and confesses that she’s been stuck in an affair with her boss. Selena, in turn, confesses that she suspects her husband is sleeping with the nanny. When the train arrives at Selena’s station, the two women part ways, presumably never to meet again.

But days later, Selena’s nanny disappears.

Soon Selena finds her once-perfect life upended. As she is pulled into the mystery of the missing nanny, and as the fractures in her marriage grow deeper, Selena begins to wonder, who was Martha really? But she is hardly prepared for what she’ll discover.

Expertly plotted and reminiscent of the timeless classic Strangers on a TrainConfessions on the 7:45 is a gripping thriller about the delicate facades we create around our lives
