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?

Opinion

From Library Staff

A woman is locked in a coma after a car crash that may not have been an accident. She hears everything that goes on around her, but can't communicate. Wake up! The suspense builds steadily in this page-turning psychological thriller. Suggested by Marie B.

Agree with a couple other reviews. Very confusing as author hops back and forh from present to past and is very repetitive. Then she seems to rush to finish and leaves a feeling of "what did I miss"? As a result, I did not feel I was able to figure out what happened.

This book confirms my theory that when all the reviews are provided by author friends there will be a lack of quality, originality, nuance and impact. Not recommended.

Tight plotting, fascinating characters and good writing make this psychological thriller fun to read. My brain was trying to unravel this mystery the whole time. I'm pleased to say the author shocked me with the ending.

Really enjoyed this new author. The plot is suspenseful, and moves along at a fast pace. Definitely a "who done it" novel that keeps the reader guessing.

A few really good twists and turns but the author spent a lot of unnecessary time getting there only to really rush through said twists and turns before concluding. It was OK I guess, I just wish she didn’t set us up initially with yet ANOTHER female protagonist in a psychological thriller who is just seemingly pushed and pulled without any agency. The author really didn’t spend time building the suspense that this genre requires to support the multiple twists and turns. There are much better psychological thrillers out there honestly.

More twists than a 3-story rollercoaster. Kept me guessing until the end. If you love psychological fiction, grab this book. There were several places where I couldn’t figure out why we were being shown certain events, but they all dovetail together beautifully. Highly recommend!

Now this is what you call a psychological thriller! This book had me hooked, loved every bit of it. A chilling story, with a plot that slowly reveals itself to you. Excellent writing too, throughly enjoyed it.

As someone said below, I feel like I should go back and read this again because I did get a little confused at the end. (I'm pretty sure I figured it out now.) Otherwise it was a great read. Each chapter left me guessing; how in the world is this going to end. It usually takes me 3 to 5 weeks to read a book; but I couldn't put this one down. It was a dark story, (to me). So if you are looking for something upbeat you may want to choose another book.
