My Thoughts

I have had this book around forever, so it counts as digging into my backlist for 2020!  Some of my backlist books have been some of my favorites this year.  Hint hint to self.

Alice Feeney is a new to me author and now an auto buy one at that.  So when I saw that she is coming out with a new book called His & Hers at the end of July, I knew I had to read this one first! 

Alternating between NOW – Amber “waking” up in a coma, THEN- the days leading up to the accident and BEFORE – the diary entries~will keep you guessing. Someone wants Amber dead, and the list of suspects isn’t short.  Her husband could want her out of the way so he can continue his alleged affair with her sister, her co-worker could have figured out who was putting her career in jeopardy, and the list goes on. I suspected all of them!

There were so many twists and turns that I had to reread a few times to keep up!  No, that couldn’t be right! Oh but it was! Yeah, I thought that a lot.  When one of the biggest twists was revealed I wanted to go back and reread some parts of the book.  I still might, because now I would be reading with a whole new perspective.  Then there is that ending! Wow! Way to set it up for a second book, which I’m really hoping she does.

If you love a good psychological thriller and a few WTF moments, this is for you!  His & Hers by the same author, Alice Feeney, comes out July 28th and I am so excited! 

Book Rating: 5/5

Goodreads Synopsis

My name is Amber Reynolds. There are three things you should know about me:
1. I’m in a coma.
2. My husband doesn’t love me anymore.
3. Sometimes I lie.

Amber wakes up in a hospital. She can’t move. She can’t speak. She can’t open her eyes. She can hear everyone around her, but they have no idea. Amber doesn’t remember what happened, but she has a suspicion her husband had something to do with it. Alternating between her paralyzed present, the week before her accident, and a series of childhood diaries from twenty years ago, this brilliant psychological thriller asks: Is something really a lie if you believe it’s the truth?
