Synopsis from Goodreads: Who is Mr. Nobody?
When a man is found on a British beach, drifting in and out of consciousness, with no identification and unable to speak, interest in him is sparked immediately. From the hospital staff who find themselves inexplicably drawn to him, to international medical experts who are baffled by him, to the national press who call him Mr. Nobody, everyone wants answers. Who is this man? And what happened to him?
Some memories are best forgotten.
Neuropsychiatrist Dr. Emma Lewis is asked to assess the patient in a small town deep in the English countryside. This is her field of expertise, this is the chance she’s been waiting for, and this case could make her name known across the world. But therein lies the danger. Emma left this same town fourteen years ago and has taken great pains to cover all traces of her past since then.Places aren't haunted . . . people are. But now something—or someone—is calling her back. And the more time she spends with her patient, the more alarmed she becomes that he knows the one thing about her that nobody is supposed to know.
My Review: I was so excited to read this one, having loved Something in the Water (the authors previous book) but I was sadly not as in love with this one. The writing is still there, the plot was intriguing and I was really interested for the first part of the book. After that though the twists just didn't feel as provocative, the pacing felt off and the ending was messy. Overall it was only okay. I do however have faith that this author can write another great book so I fully intend to check out her next one!
