Author Lynda Renham
I spend a day and night reading Remember Me by Lynda Renham. I found this book to be chilling and emotional. I couldn’t put this story down just because I wanted to know the end and I found the author did a good job at confusing the reader to which character to put trust in throughout the story.
The story itself follows Clare as she meets Sharni her new neighbor, they become fast friends and Clare lets her guard down enough to leave her son Ben with her when there is a problem with his nursery. However, over time Sharni take more and more of an interest in her family, in her looks and life style. But mostly in her son Ben…
All too soon she’s driving Clare mad, playing with her anxiety and her memory. While she makes plans to take everything she holds dear from her. Will she run off with Clare’s life, with her son, and friends? You’ll have to read this book to find out.
I found what both women had gone through rather heartbreaking, and the moments when Clare or Sharni were talking about their feels really do make you feel for them both and want something good to come out of their heartbreak that is affecting their lives. I think the author did a great job at creating a lot of emotion in her characters especially in those moments.
I found the end really disturbing and explosive and for many I think reading the book will like how this story ends. However, for me I felt a bit conflicted about the ending, on one hand it made for interesting reading, On the other a huge part of me wanted things to work out better for all concerned.
But overall I would recommend this book to anyone that like stories with lots of twists and turns, with character who are great to follow and try and get into the heads of when reading and a plot that will keep you guessing until the very end this book is for you….
