Rachel catches the same commuter train every morning. She knows it will wait at the same signal each time, overlooking a row of back gardens. She’s even started to feel like she knows the people who live in one of the houses. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. If only Rachel could be that happy. And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Now Rachel has a chance to become a part of the lives she’s only watched from afar. Now they’ll see; she’s much more than just the girl on the train...
The Sexy Nerd's Review
What was she doing, you ask? Lying to her flatmate, Cathy, about still having a job. You see, Rachel lost her job due to her drinking. She didn’t have the heart to come clean and tell her flatmate that she’d been fired, so she’d get up alongside Cathy, and go about her daily routine as if nothing has ever happened. And what’s worse, not only is she lying about her career status, but she’s also making up things in her mind about a couple she’s been watching while riding the train every morning.
Her ex-husband Tom and his new wife Anna and their baby girl live not too far from the couple she thought was so wonderful. So, imagine Rachel’s surprise when she learns that the woman who was kissing this strange man was found murdered and her face was plastered all over the news. Uh oh, Rachel has a dilemma. The police immediately suspect the husband, who’s name is Scott. Rachel doesn’t believe Scott killed his wife because she knows that Megan, the deceased, was having an affair. So, Rachel does the unthinkable. She reaches out to Scott to tell him her story and that, readers, is where this story really goes off in several different directions.
The Sexy Nerd gives The Girl on the Train four extra seats to carry the load. What an experience to ride a train and then to read about it was just the icing on the cake. If you haven’t read this story, I most definitely would recommend that you start. You’ll be so glad you did. Until next time, Nerds, you know what to do!
