Wrong Number (Wrong Number #1)Wrong Number by Carys Jones

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A missing husband. Mysterious calls. And the biggest lie of them all. Read with caution – you may never want to answer your phone again…Will and Amanda Thorne are living the dream until, one day, their phone rings. Within 24 hours, Will is missing and Amanda’s world is shattered. Who was on the phone? Where has Will gone? Amanda is determined to find her husband and is drawn into a world of drug dealers, criminal masterminds and broken promises. As the truth becomes clearer, she has to face the terrible possibility that she may never have known her husband at all…

Actually the ‘biggest lie of all’ is that line ‘Read with caution you may never want to answer your phone again’! I find it really irritating when books make bold claims that are clearly not credible. This was an okay read. I finished it. Did I enjoy it? Yes and no. The plot was too trite at times and I got annoyed with Amanda for being so bloody dumb! The hair brained chase up to Scotland was – well hair-brained. So, an okay read, which would have been better without the claims that it just couldn’t live up to and so in the end the book proved to be a disappointment. Oh, and don’t get me started on the end! But that’s all I’ll say as I don’t want to leave a spoiler.
