This is the premise of this story.
LaurieHere - Contemporary Fiction and MORE - Book Reviews
Despite the mystery of Claire's husband's disappearance, and the what-ifs of their past and future, the story is supremely family-oriented.

I ended up reading the entire book in one day!

I've had this thought a few times in life, usually after someone disappoints me by not being the type of person I'd made them to out to be: How well can one person truly know another? Unless you can read minds, you really have not one iota of an idea of what someone else is thinking or keeping from you at any given moment. So instead, we trust.

And sometimes that comes back to bite us in the arse.

For Claire, the main character in Thought I Knew You, that moment comes when her husband mysteriously disappears and she begins to find out things that she wishes she hadn't about him and their marriage. While the plotting was good and fresh, it was only the frame work for Moretti's masterful use of words to convey the flesh of the story. More than once I found myself nodding as I read a sentence, agreeing with myself that "that was a beautiful way to put that feeling into words."

Fans of Jodi Picoult will like this novel, as well as people who tend to read Oprah book club selections. This novel has that feel of being "more than a book" as it painstakingly slices open one woman's life and examines what it's like for everything to be derailed without a moment's notice.

I also want to add that the title is perfect. I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't address Claire's thoughts about herself post-derailment, just as much as it seems to be aimed at the betrayal by her husband. All in all though, this is a book I highly recommend!

***A digital copy of this novel was sent to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.**

"Thought I Knew You" is one of the most engrossing books I've read in a long time. Claire's story of a vanishing husband and the aftermath of this life-shattering event is both extraordinary yet believable. I found myself empathetically wondering what I'd do and how I'd react if faced with this devastating situation. Claire navigates this journey in compellingly human fashion.

This is a story of relationships - between Claire and her husband Greg, her childhood friend and lifeline Drew, her children, her college roommate Sarah - and the characters are richly drawn. On that level alone, the book is an excellent read - but the underlying mystery of what happened to Greg, and whether we will ever learn the truth, elevates this book to must-read status.

I also loved Ms. Moretti's writing style and can't wait for her next book. Her stellar debut novel sure made a fan out of me.

Thought I Knew You is a skillful examination of a marriage from the wife's point of view after her husband goes missing. The writing is wonderful, the story fresh and entertaining, and the ending is a surprise which left me thinking Wow, I didn't see that coming! I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys character driven stories with solid plots.

Format: Paperback
Claire Barnes thought she had a good marriage. She and Greg were together for ten years and they have two adorable little girls. But something hasn't been quite right over the last year. Greg is distant and quiet and they don't talk as much. Still every marriage has its ups and downs, it is just a rough patch. When Greg doesn't come home from a business trip, Claire's world comes crashing down. Claire is forced to examine her marriage. As she searches for her missing husband, she uncovers some puzzling facts, leading her to question whether she truly ever knew her husband. Will Claire find Greg and save her marriage?

What I Liked:
*I love it when I pick up a book and get an unexpected riveting and fascinating read. Thought I Knew You by Kate Moretti was one of those books that caught me by surprise. I was absolutely glued to the pages and couldn't put it down. I ended up reading the entire book in one day! This book is thought provoking and compelling and it raises some questions that I will be pondering for days to come. If you enjoy a book with lots of mystery, suspense and ideas that will make you think, don't miss this one.
*I thoroughly enjoyed following Claire as she falls down the dark rabbit hole of despair and depression once she discovers her husband is missing without a trace. Over two years time, she slowly claws her way out and puts the pieces of her life back together. Without Greg, she is forced to maintain a stable household for her two daughters. It is a horrifying situation to deal with the sudden absence of a loved one. In some ways it is worse than a death because there is no closure. Claire struggles with the startling questions left behind. Did Greg really just walk out on Claire and his daughters with no explanation?

This is an OUTSTANDING read! Mystery/Suspense/Psychological Thriller all the way! Yes! I am singing HIGH praises about this book because it deserves it!
I am really missing this book now that it is over, too! I feel like a lost puppy who can't find it's own tail, which only goes to show you how MUCH I LOVED this book! I really enjoyed it! Koodles to this author, Kate Moretti!
Claire's husband disappears in this book. This really makes me wonder about my own spouse! This book gives quite the shock value.
Do "I" really KNOW my own husband? Probably not. No. Not 'every' secret, but do I really want to know 'every' secret? No, I do not. Some secrets are better left alone. With that said though, this book really makes you ponder this question. You live with your spouse every day, 24/7, minus work schedules, friends, etc., but do you really think you know all there is to know? Do each of you know everything you need to about the other? Do you know enough about the secrets both of you carry in order to not worry that the other may just some day disappear? Is there anything you don't know that could just make your spouse disappear given the right buttons are pushed too far, and one or the other psychologically breaks?
Who's to say OUR own spouse would ever just disappear into thin air, that it couldn't happen to 'any' one of us? Yet it does happen.
This is the premise of this story. Here is what happens, minus any spoilers, of course!
Claires is a married, stay at home Mom to two beautiful young girls, ages 2 and 4. Once a month, her and her husband, Greg, make sure to at least take one evening a month for their 'date night'. This is their time to spend together, just the two of them. As dedicated as their date night is, their sex life is not.
