Every morning and evening, Zoe Walker takes the same route to the train station, waits at a certain place on the platform, finds her favorite spot in the car, never suspecting that someone is watching her... It all starts with a classified ad. During her commute home one night, while glancing through her local paper, Zoe sees her own face staring back at her, a grainy photo along with a phone number and listing for a website called findtheone.com. Other women begin appearing in the same ad, a different one every day, and Zoe realizes they've become the victims of increasingly violent crimes--including rape and murder. With the help of a determined cop, she uncovers the ad's twisted purpose...a discovery that turns her paranoia into full-blown panic. For now Zoe is sure that someone close to her has set her up as the next target. And now that man on the train--the one smiling at Zoe from across the car--could be more than just a friendly stranger. He could be someone who has deliberately chosen her and is ready to make his next move

I enjoyed the book and I did not know who all was involved. I found the end very interesting to find who all was involved and maybe the story will continue into another book?
The plot does bring to light how we as a society are not paying attention because we are so into our cell phones and GPS to see who is watch you. Someone told me once to not walk the same route in my neighborhood as I was waking home one night in the dusk. I know I need to pay more attention to my surroundings...this book made me think...........about how we post pictures of ourselves for strangers to see us.

I absolutely loved this book. Couldn't put it down. Wonderfully written with a few twists along the way

In the beginning of the book I found the characters a bit confusing but they did clear up quickly, it became an interesting story until almost the ending which I thought was very disappointing. The ending did keep me in suspense, but it felt like the writer was just wanting to end the story so she picked someone to be responsible.

The first book I read by this author was I Let You Go, which I thought was very good, but this one is a let-down.

Not as good as her debut novel but still good enough to keep me reading. Did start to drag a bit at the end.

Zoe is just an ordinary young woman - until the day she finds a classified ad with her photo - for a dating website that she’s never heard of. She soon discovers that other women featured in similar ads have been victims of violence. Is she next?

Slow story, dragging most times. I did not find it creepy or tense. I saw the ending coming, but had to keep reading to find out if I was right.

Tense thriller with a final-page twist.

We are creatures of habit. Each day we take the same train, walk the same direction, of course we do, we're going to work. But how vulnerable does this make us to predators who know our habits? In this creepy novel, members of a website can download a woman's commute in order to follow her. Maybe just to ask her out, maybe something more. The author does a good job of illustrating every woman's dilemma: who to trust. In this case, who is the bad guy? Is it the loving partner, the ex-husband, the pompous boss, the angry son or the daughter's smarmy new boyfriend? We're really kept guessing until the end when the author chooses to give the knife a nasty turn. Great suspense. I think I liked this one even better than her first novel: I let you go.

I really enjoyed the premise of this book and the alternating viewpoints in the chapters. At times it was a little slow, but overall it worked for me and was entertainingly creepy.

Formulaic. Ticked off all the elements on a check list. Creepy. It just lacked the spark of her first novel.
