Review of Six Years by Harlan Coben
I was so excited when I was given the opportunity to read Harlan Coben's latest work of suspense/thriller fiction. The story begins with Jake Sanders sitting in a church watching the love of his life, Natalie, getting married to a man named Todd. Jake just had to see for his self that the woman he cherished deeply was in fact marrying someone other than him. Someone who seemed to have just appeared out of thin air. At the end of the wedding, Natalie asks Jake to promise not to look for her. That promise he kept... for six years. Harlan Coben is great at putting an average person into the most bizarre of circumstances. After seeing the man Todd listed in the obituaries, Jake sets off on an insane journey of locating his long lost love, Natalie. Much to his chagrin, she doesn't seem to exist. Unable to accept no for an answer, Jake is determined to find Natalie.
