Forget the truth.
Remember the lies.
He wakes up on a deserted beach in Maryland with a gash on his head and wearing only swim trunks. He can’t remember who he is. Everything–his identity, his life, his loved ones–has been replaced by a dizzying fog of uncertainty. But returning to his Maine hometown in search of the truth uncovers more questions than answers.
Lily Reid thinks she knows her boyfriend, Jack. Until he goes missing one night, and her frantic search reveals that he’s been lying to her since they met, desperate to escape a dark past he’d purposely left behind.
Maya Scott has been trying to find her estranged stepbrother, Asher, since he disappeared without a trace. Having him back, missing memory and all, feels like a miracle. But with a mutual history full of devastating secrets, how far will Maya go to ensure she alone takes them to the grave?
Shared fates intertwine in a twisty, explosive novel of suspense, where unearthing the past might just mean being buried beneath it.
One day in Maryland, a man woke up on a beach with no memories. He couldn’t remember who he was or why he was there, but he makes his way to his hometown in Maine to find the answers. Lily Reid’s boyfriend has gone missing. When she starts searching for him, she learns that he had been lying to her about his real identity. At the same time, Maya Scott has been searching for her stepbrother for the past two years when he disappeared without a trace. Now, he’s back, but he isn’t the same. They all have dark secrets to hide that threaten to destroy everything.
This was such an amazing thriller! It was so hard to put down. There were loads of secrets and hidden pasts in each of the three narratives, which kept me hooked. The story slowly unraveled to reveal a twisted secret at the end.
The story ended abruptly but it worked really well. One character seemed suspicious from the beginning, and I was right in suspecting them. I couldn’t figure out all of the secrets though, so I was still surprised at some parts. Even though I suspected one character, it was a suspenseful read that I couldn’t put down.
You Will Remember Me is a suspenseful thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat!
