Publisher's Summary

What if you couldn't remember the last year of your life? And the people closest to you were lying about what really happened?

Gripping, shocking psychological suspense that fans of Liane Moriarty's The Husband's Secret, Clare Mackintosh's I Let You Go and Linda Green's While My Eyes Were Closed will love.

She can't remember the last year. Her husband wants to keep it that way.

When Jo Harding falls down the stairs at home, she wakes up in hospital with partial amnesia - she's lost a whole year of memories. A lot can happen in a year. Was Jo having an affair? Lying to her family? Starting a new life?

She can't remember what she did - or what happened the night she fell.

But she's beginning to realise she might not be as good a wife and mother as she thought.

A gripping debut novel

I really enjoyed the slowly evolving story as we moved between now and 12months ago.

Ok

Poor editing. Several times there was a sentence being repeated and corrected throughout. Very Distracting!

Great story, mediocre recording quality

A good book spoilt by poor sound quality. At times l could barely here it plus shabby chapter editing. A shame because it was well narrated and a gripping plot albeit a bit unfeasible.

Yawn!

What disappointed you about Close to Me?

Struggled to get through the book and took days to finish. Thin storyline with no direction.

Interesting twists - enjoyable listen

Always choose to listen to any books narrated by Rachel Atkins. Such a variety of voices. Although I found the voice of the daughter irritating she was so wingey and spoilt like a 16 year old rather than the 22 she was supposed to be.
This book was interesting and just when you think she’s solved the next step in her story, it changes again
Although there was all sorts of issues in the end.
