    Amber wakes up in the hospital, able to hear everyone around her. Only she can’t move a muscle, can’t speak a single word. She is trapped in her own body and has no way to communicate. How did she get here? What happened?

    What a finely-crafted whodunit!! It will have you questioning absolutely everything! What’s real, what isn’t! What’s the truth, and what’s a lie!

    Amber wakes up in the hospital, able to hear everyone around her. Only she can’t move a muscle, can’t speak a single word. She is trapped in her own body and has no way to communicate. How did she get here? What happened?

    What a finely-crafted whodunit!! It will have you questioning absolutely everything! What’s real, what isn’t! What’s the truth, and what’s a lie!

    As the story unfolded and I tried wrapping my brain around the mind-blowing twists, my head actually started to throb! But that’s a good thing with a thriller...right?

    Every guess made as to what was truly going on - every theory I conjured up how this would play out...all wrong! Love that.

    Alice Feeney has delivered a diabolically twisted thriller that will leave you speechless. Did I mention this is a debut from this author! Seriously! I cannot wait for — follow up! I’m already standing in line.

    Highly recommend!

    A superb, extra-large Traveling Sister read that we all couldn’t stop talking about!:)

    A Crazy, Intriguing, Twisty-Turny Psychological Thriller that Makes Your Heart Pound and leaves you Completely Dumbfounded.

    You've heard about the plot:

    My name is Amber Reynolds.

    There are three things you should know about me:

    1. I'm in a coma.

    2. My Husband doesn't love me anymore.

    3. Sometimes I lie.

    And that is all I will say about it, as you must read this one for yourselves.

    The characters are flawless. But can they be trusted? Is Amber's memory of them reliable? Sorry, but I'm afraid I can't tell you.

    When reading the book more often than not, my heart pounded and my breath caught in my throat. I constantly tried to figure out what was real and what was not real and more often than not, I was wrong.

    Published on Goodreads and Amazon on 5.9.17.

    !

    Amber is the most unreliable narrator I’ve ever encountered. This book will have you questioning everything you thought you knew all along the way. I found the premise completely original.

    The only fault I found was that, while the diary chapters were necessary to propel the plot forward and connect the loose threads of the intricate web, they were a bit too lengthy.

    If you like endings that are tied up neatly, or even endings with simple closure, this book may drive you mad! 🙃 There is quite a bit left to interpretation, and I liked that because it fit with the whole questioning tone of the book.

    I don’t want to give even the tiniest bit away and spoil the fun for you. Curl up with this blockbuster early in the day, and you’ll be wondering where the time went! 😴

I've seen varied reviews of this one and I'm definitely on the love it side of the spectrum! While I was expecting a little bit of the ending (only because I'd heard of this book many moons ago from my U.K. Friends), it didn't ruin the story for me one bit. There were plenty of twists and turns I didn't see coming throughout the entire book. It's been awhile since a novel took me by surprise in such a way.

    Don't read reviews going into this; just go in blind. You will be so glad that you did. For what it's worth, I think a good amount of the reason as to why this was a 5 star book in my experience was the narrator! Holy cow was she amazing! She knew just the right, subtle inflections to give throughout for each character; there was none of that awkward trying to fully change her voice in a cheesy form. She was absolutely brilliant, so much so that I immediately went to audible to find out what other books she's narrated as I would listen to her reading out her grocery list. She's THAT good!

    Highly recommended to all psychological suspense fans.

    Amber Reynolds wakes up and doesn’t know where she is. For a moment she wonders if it might be a hotel. But then she realizes she’s in a hospital. She doesn’t know how she got there.

    Why can’t she open her eyes?

    She knows her name, that she’s thirty-five years old, and that she’s married to Paul. Memories come but she pushes them away. Something very bad has happened but she can’t remember what or when.

    But she may already know the answer.

    She screams but no one can hear her.

    There is a word that she doesn’t like. She’s alone with the word. She can’t move. She can’t speak.

    She wonders how badly she’s injured. She’s all there in body and mind. She’s starting to have a hard time separating dreams from reality. Time has a different meaning. She counts seconds. She realizes just how long she’s been alone.

    She doesn’t know what happened to her…

    Now

    there. He’s crying. She doesn’t want to be alone with him but she doesn’t know why.

    he says.

    So many questions…

    Another person comes in …another voice.

    Whoa! My head is spinning. What a mind-bending and engrossing read! I had been hearing great things about this novel, and I’m happy to say that for me, it absolutely lived up to the hype.

    So many things I didn’t see coming. I thought I had things all figured out until something would happen that had me second guessing myself. Nothing is as it seems. With so many great twists and turns, you have no idea who you can trust.

    is Alice Feeney’s debut novel and what a debut it was! This was a well-written and compelling psychological thriller. I can’t wait to see what Alice Feeney writes next.

    ** 4.5 STARS**

    All psychological thrillers mess with your head, that's what we expect, but Alice Feeney has taken it a step further with this clever, compelling story. A story related to us by Amber Reynolds as she lies in a hospital bed whilst in a coma.

    I really don't want to give anything away here - it would be way too easy to give away a crucial segment of the plot and spoil the whole thing for anyone else, let's just say that this is possibly one of the most twisty turny books that I've had

    All psychological thrillers mess with your head, that's what we expect, but Alice Feeney has taken it a step further with this clever, compelling story. A story related to us by Amber Reynolds as she lies in a hospital bed whilst in a coma.

    I really don't want to give anything away here - it would be way too easy to give away a crucial segment of the plot and spoil the whole thing for anyone else, let's just say that this is possibly one of the most twisty turny books that I've had the pleasure to read.

    The characters are brilliant ( some of them are chilling ) but they're very much at home in their own skins. As I've already indicated, the plot is superb, and has everything that a great psychological thriller should have. I don't know whether I'm on my head or my heels right now. What an almighty twist awaits those of you who have yet to read this book - phew!

    Alice Feeney is one talented writer, the narrative was spiced with some wonderful phrases, almost poetic. Here are just a couple of examples -

    'I tread carefully over a carpet of lies, trying not to disturb them'

    'We all have to have something or someone to love, otherwise the love inside us has nowhere to go '

    Well, I think I've rattled on enough right now - if I were you, I'd just grab myself a copy just as soon as I could. I'm sure it'll keep you as enthralled as I've been.

    the story alternates between three different points in amber’s life: now/then/before. or more precisely, in coma/leading up to coma/childhood journal, and it’s full of messy relationships, tangled secrets, plots, lies, and much shade.

    I'm not usually a fan of books that hang everything on their twists or reveals, but it seems I can make an exception when my mind explodes multiple times from all the surprises.

    I'm not usually a fan of books that hang everything on their twists or reveals, but it seems I can make an exception when my mind explodes multiple times from all the surprises. This is a book where it's important to go into it knowing as little as possible, which makes it difficult to review. But I shall try.

    Amber Reynolds wakes up in hospital, but to everyone else she is in a coma. She can't move or speak. She can hear the people who visit her, but they're not aware of it. The narrative jumps between the "Now" in the hospital room where Amber attempts to uncover what happened, a "Then" leading up to what happened, and childhood diaries from decades ago.

    It all starts very intriguing but it also seems like a standard mystery. Amber knows her husband is somehow involved in what happened to her, but she can't remember why. Through her narration, we must piece together the truth. Well, the truth as Amber sees it. Or the truth she gives us.

    is compelling, but I gave it four instead of five stars because it lingers a little too long on the not-knowing in the earlier chapters, through hallucinations and dream sequences.

    . I'll let you work out when that is.

    If you figure out all the twists and turns, then you must be one hell of an astute reader. I thought the author set it up perfectly, framing the narrative secrets just right so that I didn't even fully work out the questions I should be asking, never mind the answers. There were parts that left me speechless in shock.

    The epilogue leaves the story open for a sequel. I'm interested to see what the author will do with it; I only hope it is actually necessary, seeing that all the secrets seem to have been given up in this book. But who knows? Maybe the author has even more wild surprises up her sleeve.

    Trigger warning:

    Three narratives intersect:

    A woman lies in a hospital bed in a coma. She can hear everything that is going on around her but cannot communicate to let those who love her know that something is very wrong.

    Switch to days before her accident, and we learn about her life. Her marriage is failing, she’s about to lose her job, and she’s sick of playing second fiddle to her sister.

    We also go back in time to read a young girl’s diary written in the 1990’s, which gradually reveals that all is not what it seems.

    I found myself really bored while reading this. The only part that piqued my interest was the young girl’s diary. Her voice was chilling, and I loved reading her POV on the events that defined her childhood. I love a manipulative narrator, and the author of the diary did not disappoint. On the other hand, the other two narratives moved slowly (too slowly IMHO),

    Maybe I have just read too many thrillers and have become too jaded to enjoy outrageous plots and twists, which was certainly the case with this book.
