Review: Forget You Know Me

Forget You Know Me


Forget You Know Me is that book you can’t put down, and can’t stop thinking about when you are finished.” —Sally Hepworth, bestselling author of The Family Next Door

When a video call between friends captures a shocking incident no one was supposed to see, the secrets it exposes threaten to change their lives forever.

Molly and Liza have always been enviably close. Even after Molly married Daniel, the couple considered Liza an honorary family member. But after Liza moved away, things grew more strained than anyone wanted to admit—in the friendship and the marriage.

When Daniel goes away on business, Molly and Liza plan to reconnect with a nice long video chat after the kids are in bed. But then Molly leaves the room to check on a crying child.

What Liza sees next will change everything.

Only one thing is certain: Molly needs her. Liza drives all night to be at Molly’s side—but when she arrives, the reception is icy, leaving Liza baffled and hurt. She knows there’s no denying what she saw.

Or is there?

In disbelief that their friendship could really be over, Liza is unaware she’s about to have a near miss of her own.

And Molly, refusing to deal with what’s happened, won’t turn to Daniel, either.

But none of them can go on pretending. Not after this.

Jessica Strawser’s Forget You Know Me is a “twisty, emotionally complex, powder keg of a tale” (bestselling author Emily Carpenter) about the wounds of people who’ve grown apart. Best, friends, separated by miles. Spouses, hardened by neglect. A mother, isolated by pain.

One moment will change things for them all.

Rating: 3.5-stars


Forget You Know Me by Jessica Strawser had me hooked. The blurb was so mysterious, I needed to know more. After opening the book, I realized the book wasn’t really a thriller but a contemporary novel. It showed the complications of life and how twisted situations can become. Two friends were reconnecting in a nice manner when everything suddenly changed. That part also grabbed my immediate attention. But then, it was too strange/mysterious and kind of forgotten. The strained relationships between the two female friends and among the married couple got worse with every page. I was still not in the clear as to how it would all wrap up together. But it did. Jessica Strawser is great at keeping readers like me in the dark.
