Well written story, and very well narrated. I would recommend this to someone that either likes psychological thrillers, or stories where the main character has forgotten who she is.
Orlagh Cassidy is likely the perfect voice for this.
The premise was interesting but there are definitely moments that you have to suspend logic. So much of what happens leaves you scratching your head and saying to yourself, "there's NO way".
There was a lot of repetitive dialogue and phrasing. The worst was the "Ben" character... Although the narrator did an excellent job overall, the "voice" she used for him was highly annoying. And it seemed he was set on "replay". He said the same phrases over and over and was just irritating from start to finish.
My biggest complaint was one mentioned in a previous review... the "F bomb". It was used WAY too much to the point of distraction. Very unnecessary and disappointing.
This one started slow for me. Just as I was thinking I might give up, it started gripping me. I'm kind of wondering if it was the narrator that put me off a bit since some narrators can't pull off suspense.
Anyway, I loved the story and loved the ending. I will be looking for more from this author.
After reading the comments I decided to give this book a try. I'm glad I did, it was read well, she did a great job. The story had some slow parts but overall it was a good book.

I would describe this book as 50 First Dates meets The Girl On The Train. Not comparing it to 50 First Dates because of the comedy but the subject matter. A main female protagonist who suffers from amnesia and remembers almost nothing about her life. Christine wakes up in someone else's bed with someone else's husband when she makes it to the bathroom just to realize she has no idea who the person in the mirror is.
What a way to start a book. The mystery starts to unravel slowly throughout the story. Who is Christine who is this man she woke up next to and what happened to the last 20 years of her life can these memories be retrieved can she figure out where she is and who she was in bed with and how did the memories get lost in the first place. All these questions are brought to light in this story and you will learn as you read that you do not know the true nature of any of the characters even the one telling the story.
All will be revealed and many readers will not see the twist and turns coming. Just enjoy the ride through this great story.
Felt long winded at times.. But the story kept my interest and provoked great thought on how the plot would conclude...
Would definitely recommend! Great narration also. :)
really enjoyed book. an interesting mystery. ending a little lackluster definitely recommend the book to anyone interested in a thriller mystery.
