You Will Remember Me by Hannah Mary McKinnon

An unputdownable amnesia thriller that begs the question: how can you trust anyone when you can't even trust yourself?

Forget the truth.

Remember the lies.

He wakes up on a deserted beach in Maryland with a gash on his head and wearing only swim trunks. He can’t remember who he is. Everything—his identity, his life, his loved ones—has been replaced by a dizzying fog of uncertainty. But returning to his Maine hometown in search of the truth uncovers more questions than answers.

Lily Reid thinks she knows her boyfriend, Jack. Until he goes missing one night, and her frantic search reveals that he’s been lying to her since they met, desperate to escape a dark past he’d purposely left behind.

Maya Scott has been trying to find her estranged stepbrother, Asher, since he disappeared without a trace. Having him back, missing memory and all, feels like a miracle. But with a mutual history full of devastating secrets, how far will Maya go to ensure she alone takes them to the grave?

Shared fates intertwine in a twisty, explosive novel of suspense, where unearthing the past might just mean being buried beneath it.

3.5/5 stars

This is only my 2nd novel by Hannah Mary McKinnon - The Secret Sister was my first.  I love this cover, it very much gives that trouble is brewing vibe.

You Will Remember Me is somewhat of a slower paced story with secret keeping characters. Told between a number of POVS its about trying to remember the past while adjusting to the future and having to trust an unreliable bunch.

McKinnon wove this story while slowly revealing the past and concluded with an ending that left me rather stunned.   The mystery itself was interesting enough, with both unreliable and unlikable characters.  Predictable on one hand but with an ending I didn't see coming - well done!

You Will Remember Me releases in just a weeks time and available in all platforms.

My thanks to the publisher (via Netgalley) for a digitial arc in exchange for a honest review.
