Two people. One love story. Six days.
He loves me… He loves me not… He loves me…
Gemma knows that she and Finn are destined to be together. They are soulmates. But then, on their wedding day, he never arrives at the church.
Gemma is convinced Finn wouldn’t abandon her like this, even though he has disappeared once before. But back then he had a reason. She feels sure something terrible has happened, but no one else is convinced. Even the police aren’t concerned, telling Gemma most people who disappear usually turn up in a week… assuming they want to be found, that is.
For the next six days Gemma frantically searches for Finn, even though every shocking revelation is telling her to give up on him. Before long, even she begins to doubt her own memories of their love.
How long can she hold on to her faith in Finn if everyone is telling her to let him go?
***Thanks to NetGalley and Head of Zeus for an eARC of this book. The following review is my honest reflection on the text provided.
enjoyable/easy to read:
Atkins writes a seriously gripping story. I honestly had no idea what to expect and struggled to decide whether Gemma’s faith in Finn was inspiring or misplaced. The tension is well-balanced with flashbacks of their love story, and I was totally on board for the whole rollercoaster of emotions.
While I definitely wouldn’t classify Gemma and Finn’s relationship as instalove, the emotions are sky-high pretty quickly when they start liking each other. I didn’t particularly like either of them as characters, and their complex relationship had some red flags (on both sides), but if these flags didn’t exist, there wouldn’t really be a story here.
Six Days is a good representation of messy and complicated lives. Everyone has a story, and nothing is ever as simple as it first appears.
