    Reading the premise for this book I knew I had to read it I’m fascinated with the concept of characters having no memory of who they are Anything involving amnesia captures my interest right away Is that strange?A woman shows up in a small village knocking on a door she’s positive is her home Just a small issue there is another couple Tony and Laura living there Because this unfortunate mystery guest can’t recall her name Tony takes to calling her Jemma But could she be the notorious Jemma Huish that was locked away for years? Of course the gossip mill is pumping at full capacity and everyone has their own theory on who this woman could beAs much as I wanted to love this one I just couldn’t get there The story line just didn’t flow for me and I felt like I was constantly shaking my head at all the charactersand I mean each and every one of themA very fast and light read that just lacked the execution I’ve come to expect in my thrillersA buddy read with Susanne 🌸Thank you to NetGalley Harleuin Park Row and JS Monroe for an ARC to read and review

    4 stars A spine tingling suspenseful storyA woman shows up on the doorstep of a young couples home in a small Wiltshire village The couple answer their door to find this strange woman who doesn’t know her own name or why she is on their porch only that she just got off a flight and has lost her luggage passport and personal belongings Not knowing her identity or anything about her past the strange woman is drawn to the town and tries to piece her life together She must rely on the kindness of the locals to try to find answers to her puzzling situation This book had me hooked from the first page I felt as though I was caught in an eerie fog of mystery along with the main character throughout her journey The author JS Monroe does an excellent job building a dark and foreboding atmosphere which gave me a chilling feeling and kept me curious throughout The chapters switch perspectives between several characters adding deeper layers of intrigue Each chapter ends with a cliffhanger which left me eager to continue on to find out how things would concludeI enjoyed the storyline however there were a few situations that seemed far fetched I am usually turned off by any sort of unrealistic plot points however I was able to overlook them and simply enjoy the journey The writing was excellent which had me flying through the pages and kept me fully engrossed within the plot Thank you to HarperCollins for sending me a physical copy to read and review

    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 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 My reviews can also be found on my blog wwwjennifertarheelreadercom

    After reading the blurb on this book I couldn’t wait to start as it sounded like I could really sink my teeth into it and was I disappointed? Definitely not The first line “I can’t remember my own name” had me intrigued straight awayA mystery woman arrives at Tony and Laura’s house claiming she lives therebut has Amnesia and no proof of ID They let her stay but who have they invited into their homeThis is a twisty thriller that draws you in I didn’t guess how this would end and thoroughly enjoyed trying to guess how this book would endThank you to Netgalley for my copy in exchange for a review

    Wow ok this one totally missed the mark for me Yikes A woman is fresh off the plane from Berlin and shows up at a married couples home Tom and Laura not knowing who she is or where she came from This is the typical amnesia plot The couple takes her in and tries to help her remember her life etc They end up taking her to the doctor and they think she is a woman that used to live in the same house three years ago Jemma Huish But then the police get involved and rule that out So who is this mysterious woman?Ok where do I start? You really have to suspend disbelief in this one There was way too much going on in this book and I was just super confused I also kept getting annoyed with Jemma's decisions she makes in this book and kept rolling my eyes The book was way too long I'm a little tired of the memory loss scheme in all these booksOverall didn't really enjoy this one and would suggest skipping this one 25 starsThank you to HarleuinTrade Publishing for the arc via netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewPublication date 52819Published to Goodreads 22219

    3☆ A very Twisty Thriller FORGET MY NAME is a twisty thriller with a psychological thriller feelWhen I read the blurb for this book I was really intrigued I enjoy my thrillers to be a little different and haven't read many books where the main character suffers from amnesiaA mysterious women arrives on Tony and Laura's doorstep She believes this was her house But you see she doesn't really know who she is or if she even really lives there as she has amnesiaTony and Laura are uick to take the mysterious women in and try to help her reconnect with her memories to work out who she really isThis screams alarm bells to me Who would invite a complete stranger into their home who has no memory Asking for troubleFor me I did find the plot to be rather disjointed and a little confusing There was a fair amount of characters whom I felt were not particularly likeable or relatableWhich is perfectly ok as with thrillers you don't always necessarily like the characters but the amount of them meant it got a lil overwhelmed trying to keep up The storyline does stretch your imagination which I don't mind as thats the great thing about books you can jump from reality but not all readers enjoy this so just to make you aware be prepared to expand your imagination to get into the gritty plotOverall Forget My Name is a twisty psychological thriller that at times had a sinistercreepy undertoneBut unfortunately had a few too many characters to keep me hooked and drawn inThis is my first book by Monroe and I will be intrigued to read I do recommend reading Forget My Name if you enjoy your thrillers to be twisty lots of characters and a creepy plotThank you to Head of Zeus for this copy which I reviewed honestly and voluntarilyMy Review is also on my Blog Website

    I’ve been in a weird reading mood lately y’all I’m either absolutely raving about a book and pushing everyone to read it or I hate it and am pissy Just wanted to put that out there before I get started on my thoughts about this one because unfortunately this one fell on the the I didn’t like it all side of things 🤷‍♀️I’m not going to sit here and completely bash this one but I do wanna uickly share why it didn’t work for me I wasn’t invested in the characters and I think it’s partly because there were way too many of them and none were fully fleshed out They were very one dimensional to me and I just didn’t really care what happened to them in the end I also felt like it was longer than it needed to be and I really had to push myself to finish and I’m talking once I got to like eighty percent That’s never a good sign for me usually when I’m reading a thriller the ending is where I’m hooked and don’t want to put it down and I didn’t feel like that here at all The plot itself was fine at least most of it but I did find certain aspects to be far fetched and just highly unbelievable Overall I just didn’t care for this one the characters the writing the story I was very apathetic about the whole thing and I can’t say I recommend it

    Forget My Name started out like it was going to be a great thriller that I could really get lost in Unfortunately for me it didn't keep going in the same vein and I lost interest Too many characters and theories being tossed around that were so far fetched I figured out the who early on but not why I wanted to like this one just wasn't for meA woman turns up at a house that she believes she lives in only to find another couple living there She has no memory and can't even remember her name The couple invite her in and let her stay while she tries to figure out who she's is and why she is there I was confused by some of the actions of these people who had no idea who this woman wasThanks to Head of Zeus and NetGalley for my advanced copy of this book to read All opinions are my own and are in no way biased
