Review: On an icy winter’s day in southwest Michigan, Grace Abbot wakes up as the survivor of a car crash. But she’s left with a traumatic brain injury and a terrifying reality: she can’t remember anything.
Left in the care of her sister, Grace returns to the family’s secluded old farmhouse to recover—but within an hour of her return, the police arrive. Grace’s boyfriend has been murdered. Without any memory, Grace has no alibi.
With suspicion weighing heavily on her and flashes of memory returning, Grace searches for clues to her past. But with every glimpse, her anxiety grows. There is something about the house, her family, her childhood…perhaps the accident isn’t the only reason she can’t remember. Are the dark recesses of her mind hiding something even more sinister and terrifying than she could ever imagine?
Is someone willing to kill again to hide the truth?
I tried really hard to finish this book, but gave up less than half way through, so I can’t give it a true review. I enjoyed the descriptive language and the premise of the story was very interesting, however, I found it to be anticlimactic and felt no connection to the characters.
I feel that Diskin has the potential to be a decent writer, just chose the wrong genre.
