Today I have a review of The Last Thing She Remembers by J.S. Monroe. The Last Thing She Remembers will be available from Park Row Books/Harlequin on May 28, 2019.
The main character in The Last Thing She Remembers has no name. Why? She can’t remember it. She arrives at the train station and realizes her bag is gone. In it, her passport, keys, and credit cards are all missing. The only thing she still possesses is her return train ticket.
She arrives in the tiny village of Wiltshire where she thinks she lives; however, the people in town are fearful of her and begin to spread rumors of conspiracy. The police are also interested.
The premise of The Last Thing She Remembers is completely original and captivating from the start. The woman has stress-induced amnesia, and I could not help but think this could happen to me or anyone.
I was on the edge-of-my-seat waiting to find out if the main character was someone sinister. There were so many theories as to what could have happened, who she may be; it all kept me guessing.
Overall, I found this an original take on an amnesia plot, with easy flowing writing and a solid pace. I would say this is more mystery than thriller, but I was intrigued and invested in solving this one from the very start.
I received a complimentary copy. All opinions are my own.
Who can you trust if you don’t know who you are? She arrives at the train station only to realize her bag had been stolen–her passport, credit cards, laptop, house key now all gone. And even more disturbing, when she goes to report the incident, she can’t recall her own name. All she has on her is a train ticket home.Suffering from stress-induced amnesia, the woman without a name is a source of mystery when she appears at the sleepy Wiltshire village where she thought she lived. She quickly becomes a source of conspiracy and fear among the townspeople. Why does one think he recognizes her from years earlier? And why do the local police take such a strong interest in her arrival?From the critically acclaimed author of Find Me comes a shocking new tale of dark pasts and deception, leaving us breathlessly analyzing the role memory plays in defining who we are–and who others think we might be.
