Rating: 3/5 Stars
Synopsis from Goodreads: What would you do if you woke up and didn't know who you were? Chloe Daniels regains consciousness in a hospital with no memory of how she got there. She doesn't recognise the strangers who call themselves family. She can't even remember her own name. What if your past remained a mystery? As she slowly recovers, her parents and sister begin to share details of her life. The successful career. The seaside home. The near-fatal car crash. But Chloe senses they're keeping dark secrets--and her determination to uncover the truth will have devastating consequences. What if the people you should be able to trust are lying to you?
My Review: I loved the idea of this book far more than the actual book. While the writing was good and I liked the characters I had a lot of issues with the plot. Firstly, it got boring and a bit repetitive. When someone lies to you it takes a while before you are open to listening to them again, even if they tell you something shocking. Yet despite that Chloe goes back to the same person over and over despite each new lie. That was really frustrating for me. I also saw the culprit (its not a murder mystery really but there is a definite villain in this story, actually more than one but that’s debatable) coming from a mile away. I usually don’t guess so the fact that it was obvious to me kind of ruined it a little bit for me. However, I thought the ending was really well done so I’m still open to trying books from this author in the future!
