The Memory by Lucy Dawson @lucydawsonbooks @bookouture #bookreview

TGIF! Hope you are having a wonderful Friday!

Thrilled to share with you today my review for this exceptional psychological thriller! Huge thanks to Kim for my invitation to the tour and to Lucy Dawson for her terrific tale❄️🖤

My Thoughts

oh boy! This book! It was so dark, disturbing, and unsettling! And SO GOOD!

This book was one wild and crazy ride that took me places I was not expecting! A creepy story that completely draws you in, and you are convinced you know what direction you are headed, but boy was I wrong! Secrets and lies and deceit all leaving me completely bewildered! This is the third book I’ve read this year from Lucy Dawson all have been spectacular and unique… not only unique from one another, but different from all other psychological thrillers….

This book starts with a bang! a tragic event that will change the lives of Yves, Isabel,Adam and Tim forever… the tragedy appears to have impacted Isabell the most, leaving her permanently trapped in a childlike state… this also greatly impacts the lives of eve, Isabel’s mother and Adam, the man who is in love with her… when Isabel’s life is completely upheaved, a move and the return of a blast from the past… secrets start to spill out!

Told from the alternating points of view of eve and Clare… I thought this was brilliant Eve obviously has been in the midst of all the drama from day one… but Claire is a unwitting newcomer…. can only imagine how disconcerting it would be to meet Isabell, this stunning woman with the voice of a child and perhaps the mind…. then to find out that this woman has ties to your significant other… so much manipulation and deceit running throughout the pages of this book! So hard to write this review I want to convey how much I loved this book and I don’t want to give a single thing away…. just know you will need to buckle your seatbelt for this rollercoaster… the ride to the top of the hill may take some time… but once you get there watch out! The other side is one crazy twisted ride that will leave you breathless!

Absolutely recommend to anyone who enjoys a well done perfectly paced thrill of a story!

About the Book

I look down at her, lying fast asleep – always my little girl, and so beautiful. She gives a low moan as her head turns restlessly on the pillow. It reminds me of the soft growl of a cornered animal. Where is my poor child? What is she dreaming?

People always notice my daughter, Isobel. How could they not? Incredibly beautiful… until she speaks.

An unsettling, little-girl voice, exactly like a child’s, but from the mouth of a full-grown woman.

Izzie might look grown-up, but inside she’s trapped. Caught in the day it happened – the day that broke her from within.

I know why my daughter is the way she is. There’s nothing I could have done to save her… is there?

An unputdownable psychological thriller about families and secrets, perfect for fans of Gone Girl, Shalini Boland and Lisa Jewell.




Meet the Author

About me by Lucy Dawson: 

I’ve been writing psychological suspense novels since 2008, when my first bestseller – His Other Lover – was published. I write full time (mostly on the playroom sofa) from my home in Devon, where I live with my husband and children. Before that, I used to edit a magazine for six to twelve year old girls for a living, making absolutely no use whatsoever of my psychology degree from Warwick University, but it was a lot of fun. 

I’m addicted to writing about the extraordinary things that can happen to ordinary people – stories that jump in at the deep end, with a gasp. When readers take the time out to let me know they’ve stayed up all night because they couldn’t put the book down, it makes my day. 

I really enjoy catching up with readers and always reply to emails. You can reach me at lucy@lucydawsonbooks.com. I’m also on Twitter @lucydawsonbooks and have a Facebook page at lucydawsonbooks. Alternatively you can download a free short story of mine at www.lucydawsonbooks.comor if you want to look at a lot of pictures of the beach and books that I’m reading, find me on Instagram at lucydawsonbooks.
