My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Out May 28th! Pre-order from Amazon here!
This is a book that I fear is going to be grossly underestimated. I have to admit that I haven’t seen this book all over social media and hadn’t heard of it before the publisher sent me a copy to review. But, I always find that when publishers send me books that I haven’t requested, I discover some of my favorite authors so I thank them for that.
The Last Thing She Remembers was such a pleasant surprise. A fast paced, mysterious, twisty thriller that kept me on my toes from start to finish, I thoroughly enjoyed J.S. Monroe’s work.
The story begins when a young woman shows up on Tony and Laura’s doorstep with no recollection of who she is, where she came from, or why she is there. Tony and Laura take her in and try to help her regain her memory. What follows is a crazy roller coaster ride of stuff that had me guessing all the way until the end. There are quite a few surprises along the way that any thriller-lover would enjoy.
I will say that you kind of have to suspend reality in a few parts of the book because there were a few things that happened that were a tad too coincidental for me to believe. This is definitely not a story that could actually take place, but not many thrillers are.
Bravo to J.S. Monroe on a successful novel. I hope this one gets more publicity and chatter on social media as publication date gets nearer because it is worth the book-reviewing community’s attention.
I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to NetGalley, J.S. Monroe, and Harlequin Trade Publishing for the opportunity to review.
