Publisher's Summary

“A heart-pounding thriller. When I Was You pitches two women with the same name against one another, and the rug is pulled out from under you the moment you decide to trust one of them.” (Sandie Jones, USA Today best-selling author of The Other Woman)

“Amber Garza has upped the game on the classic stalker novel!... A fast-paced, beautifully plotted book.” (Samantha Downing, USA Today best-selling author of My Lovely Wife)

You meets Fatal Attraction in this up-all-night story of suspicion, obsession, and motherhood.

It all begins on an ordinary fall morning, when Kelly Medina gets a call from her son’s pediatrician to confirm her upcoming "well-baby" appointment. It’s a cruel mistake; her son left for college a year ago, and Kelly’s never felt so alone. The receptionist quickly apologizes: There’s another mother in town named Kelly Medina, and she must have gotten their numbers switched.

For days, Kelly can’t stop thinking about the woman who shares her name. Lives in her same town. Has a son she can still hold, and her whole life ahead of her. She can’t help looking for her: at the grocery store, at the gym, on social media. When Kelly just happens to bump into the single mother outside that pediatrician’s office, it’s simple curiosity getting the better of her.

Their unlikely friendship brings Kelly a renewed sense of purpose - taking care of this young woman and her adorable baby boy. But that friendship quickly turns to obsession, and when one Kelly disappears, well, the other one may know why.

Interesting but sad and dark

The story portraits a woman who put up with abuse and neglect and infidelity from her husband. A man who thought was distant, cold, and at a “higher” level than his wife and son, just because he was a man.
A neglected girl who is very messed up as consequence of her up bringing.
Not a happy ending what so ever.

Slow Going and Predictable

This one was mediocre. I found Part I to be slow going and mundane; Part 2 was predictable.

Predictable.

Every says it was so shocking with twists and turns but I was one step ahead the whole time and was hoping to get shocked. I wasn’t 🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️

Cliche mom shaming

I really didn't like this book and debated returning several times. Some ok parts at the end, but mostly filled with upper middle class parenting cliches. Main character was judgemental, annoying, and difficult to like.

Amazing

I loved this so much. I pre-ordered this book and was looking forward to it with anticipation. It was worth the wait! I loved the suspense, and the plot twists, great characters. 5 stars!

Great Ending

Alot of the content was certainly predictable the last 1 hour or so of the book had some unexpected twists and turns. I had a lot of difficulty getting through most of the book. I usually devour books but this one took me over a week to finish because it just didn't keep me on the edge of my seat. It has an amazing last 10 minutes though!!!

Keeps you guessing

Fresh story and the the whole book kept me engaged. They break it down into 3 parts which part 1 is the longest.

There was a moment in the middle where I wanted to hit fast forward.
