How do you know who to trust…
…when you don’t even know who you are?
You are outside your front door.
There are strangers in your house.
Then you realise. You can’t remember your name.
She arrived at the train station after a difficult week at work. Her bag had been stolen, and with it, her identity. Her whole life was in there – passport, wallet, house key. When she tried to report the theft, she couldn’t remember her own name. All she knew was her own address.
Now she’s outside Tony and Laura’s front door. She says she lives in their home. They say they have never met her before.
One of them is lying.

The description of Forget My Name had me intrigued that is why I requested it, plus I do like a good thriller/suspense book to get my teeth into. It starts with a woman turning up to a house in a village she knocks on the door and says she has forgotten her name but remembers the house, detailing the layout of the house. The couple now living there feel a bit sorry for her and offer to put her up for the night and take her to the doctor the following morning. During this time the husband decides that she looks like a Jemma and so she is called that. But there was a murderer called Jemma from that village too, who did live in the same house, a coincidence? Will she get her memory back and find out she is, in fact, the murderer called Jemma or is something else going on? Well, you will have to read the book to find out.
This book did have me completely hooked as I really didn’t know what was going to happen next. Just when I thought I had sussed it all out something would happen and I was back to square one. And when I did realise what was happening it was like a movie, the suspense kept me on the edge of my seat just waiting to see what would happen at the end. I was not disappointed. I absolutely loved this book!
