Confessions on the 7:45 by Lisa Unger

Publication Date: October 6, 2020
Publisher: Park Row Books

Strangers telling each other their deepest secrets starts the ball rolling as we find many characters with secrets, characters who tell lies, characters who are manipulative, and characters who aren’t who they seem. 

Martha and Selena meet by chance on the train coming home, and they exchange secrets.

Martha is having an affair with her boss.

Selena saw in the nanny camera that her husband was having an affair with the nanny.

Martha replied by saying that maybe the nanny will disappear, and then the nanny does disappear.

Selena doesn't reply but regrets telling her secret.

What do all of these characters have to do with each other and with the events that have been happening?

There are quite a few characters to keep straight and characters that cross paths, but how do they all fit in and connect?

CONFESSIONS ON THE 7:45 is truly addictive.  It is one surprise after another. 

You won’t want to put it down because of the writing and the cunning, who-do-you-believe characters and the who-could-think-of these things that are happening.

Make sure this book makes it into your TBR for this fall. 5/5

  1. I'm wondering why Selena seemed okay with her husabnd having an affair with the nanny. I'm a bit weirded out with Martha as well, with the nanny disappearing straight after Selena told Martha about it. Sounds like an intruiging read!

    1. It is good.

      ENJOY if you read it.

      THANKS for your comment, Bookworm blog.

  3. HI Elizabeth! I've seen this book around and I have one Lisa Unger on my Kindle that I should still read.

    This has elements of Strangers on a train and The kind worth killing - both books I loved!

    Thanks for sharing and I hope you are well, Elizabeth
