Confessions on the 7:45 summary

Confessions on the 7:45 follow Selena Murphy on her commute home on the train. When she strikes up a conversation with the woman sitting next to her she quickly finds out that she’s been having an affair with her boss. In turn, Selena confesses how she suspects that her husband is having an affair with the nanny. When they part ways Selena expects to never see or hear from her again. Then the nanny disappears. After being strung into this mystery she starts to question who the woman on the train really was.

What I thought

Confessions on the 7:45 is a book that has been on my TBR (to be read) for a while. I’m not really sure why I waited so long to read it. Around this time last year, I had actually started the book but for some reason, I stopped reading it. I guess at the time I just wasn’t really feeling the book. But I’m glad I finally listened to the audiobook.

The only thing that bothers me with Confessions on the 7:45 is how Selena didn’t leave her husband a lot sooner. There were many signs that should have made her leave long before this point. I get she wanted to stay because of the children, but children pick up when parents aren’t happy. To me, that could potentially cause more damage to the children rather than just separating.

I get that there probably wouldn’t have been much of a story if things had happened that way. Other than that I found the story interesting. I wouldn’t say this is one of my favorite thrillers out there only because I found myself getting bored. There were a few aspects of the story I just didn’t care enough about.

On top of that, I didn’t care about what happened to Selena. Did she deserve it? No. I honestly just didn’t like her enough to care what happened in the end.

The plot was a bit slow for my taste and didn’t get to the point fast enough. Unfortunately, the whole story was a bit meh to me.

I can see those who enjoy slow-burn thrillers enjoying this one!
