Six Years
Six years have passed since Jake Sanders watched Natalie, the love of his life, marry another man. Six years of hiding a broken heart by throwing himself into his career as a college professor. Six years of keeping his promise to leave Natalie alone, and six years of tortured dreams of her life with her new husband, Todd. But six years haven't come close to extinguishing his feelings, and when Jake comes across Todd's obituary, he can't keep himself away from the funeral. There he gets the glimpse of Todd's wife he's hoping for . . . but she is not Natalie. Whoever the mourning widow is, she's been married to Todd for more than a decade, and with that fact everything Jake thought he knew about the best time of his life--a time he has never gotten over--is turned completely inside out. As Jake searches for the truth, his picture-perfect memories of Natalie begin to unravel. Mutual friends of the couple either can't be found or don't remember Jake. No one has seen Natalie in years. Jake's search for the woman who broke his heart, and who lied to him. soon puts his very life at risk as it dawns on him that the man he has become may be based on carefully constructed fiction.

I haven't read a Harlen Coben book for quite some time, Six Years reminded me how much I like his books. I don't usually read a book in a day but I had to find out what happened. Lots of suspense and plot twists and the ending was good.

Light ... Camera ... Action!
Ha-ha-ha. Incredible Adventures of Professor Fisher.
In this book there is nothing of the genre "mystery". But I like a sense of humor of the author.

Great story which I would have enjoyed more if I had not just finished reading "Tell No One", which has a very similar plot and more suspense.

Fast paced, great characters and a twist half way through that kept me reading.

I also like Coben's other series with main character, Myron Bolitar.

You can't go wrong with any of Harlan Coben's writing.

this installment was very disappointing... the start was slow and the plot just wasn't up to Coben's usual standard... it was as if he was trying to convince himself of his own plot! Coben is usually a 4+ star writer and this only got 3 stars for loyalty...

Okay, it was my own fault for picking any available book for the tablet. And I suffered through it, even though I did want to put it down at least fifteen times. Overall, I thought it was poorly written and I could not maintain the suspension of disbelief required to enjoy drivel like this. Also all the characters were flat and unlikeable. Did I mention that I didn't like this book?

Kept me turning pages. Somewhat weird plot - where do authors come up with so many strange plot twists - I guess to keep us turning pages. This was a light break from the Bolivar / Winn series.

Read this in a couple of days. I really enjoy this author and his ability to spin a tale that keeps me tuned in throughout. A great summer read.

I really enjoyed this book - actually couldn't put it down yet, after reading some of the comments, wondered if I should cancel my hold on it. So glad I didn't.
