LoveReading View on Everything You Told Me

This is interesting. Of course  the mystery is not revealed until the last few pages  and although some of it I guessed, I certainly didn’t guess it all … very clever.  Sal wakes up in the back of a taxi on a cliff top in Cornwall.  She is drugged, remembers nothing and is staggering around dangerously close to the edge when she is rescued by a dog walker.  We then, with her in first-person narrative, attempt to discover how and why she is there.  Post-natal depression?  (She has two small children.) Suicide? attempt to get her husband’s attention?  All these things are explored.  Her family gather round: a possessive, professional mother-in-law, her down-to-earth shopkeeper parents, a brother with a new celeb girl friend.  Some help, some hinder as we fumble through clues and questions.  The poor woman is indeed very confused and begins to believe herself ill.  Help is obviously needed. ~ Sarah Broadhurst

Everything You Told Me Synopsis

Impossible to put down psychological suspense, perfect for fans of Louise Jensen, Tammy Cohen and Claire Douglas. You went to bed at home, just like every other night. You woke up in the back of a taxi, 300 miles away. You have no memory of the last ten hours. You have a suicide note in your coat pocket, in your own writing. You know you weren't planning to kill yourself. Your family and friends think you are lying. Someone knows exactly what happened to you. But they're not telling...
