Lisa Ballantyne, international bestselling author of The Guilty One, delivers a compelling domestic thriller with impeccably observed characters and masterful edge-of-your-seat storytelling in a novel that leaps between past and present with page-turning finesse
They’re calling it the worst pile-up in London history. Driving home, Margaret Holloway has her mind elsewhere—on a troubled student, her daughter’s acting class, the next day’s meeting—when she’s rear-ended and trapped in the wreckage. Just as she begins to panic, a disfigured stranger pulls her from the car just seconds before it’s engulfed in flames. Then he simply disappears.
Though she escapes with minor injuries, Margaret feels that something’s wrong. She’s having trouble concentrating. Her emotions are running wild. More than that, flashbacks to the crash are also dredging up lost associations from her childhood, fragments of events that were wiped from her memory. Whatever happened, she didn’t merely forget—she chose to forget. And somehow, Margaret knows deep down that it’s got something to do with the man who saved her life.
As Margaret uncovers a mystery with chilling implications for her family and her very identity, Everything She Forgot winds through a riveting dual narrative and asks the question: How far would you go to hide the truth—from yourself…?

Everything She Forgot takes place in the present and 1985 and is told from different perspectives. This can be quite confusing but in this case it worked. All the different perspectives gave a whole story, if this was told with only one perspective the book would not have been quite such a great read.

The connection between the present and past was not hard to figure out real soon, but still I was compelled to keep reading just to see what would happen next and to see if I was right of course. This is labled as a thriller but to be honost the suspense is missing in this story. Do not get me wrong this is still a great read and I really enjoyed it.

I enjoyed the different characters there were mainly three (and a few others) Margaret, Big George and Angus. The character development was good and Big George I liked the best, but to be honost I would like to see what would happen next with Angus, well especially his family actually.

I do not want to go into detail about the story too much since it would be a shame to give to much away. I am conviced that this a book to check out. The story really is good and the different characters and perspectives make that you'll keep flipping the pages, just don't expect a thriller.

My rating 3/5
