You Don’t Know Me
Simon & Schuster Australia
He’s guarding a dark secret, but so is she.
Lizzie Burdett was eighteen when she vanished, and Noah Carruso has never forgotten her. She was his first crush, his unrequited love. She was also his brother’s girlfriend.
Tom Carruso hasn’t been home in over a decade. He left soon after Lizzie disappeared, under a darkening cloud of suspicion, and now he’s back for the inquest into Lizzie’s death – intent on telling his side of the story.
As the inquest looms, Noah meets Alice Pryce on holiday. They fall for each other fast and hard, but Noah can’t bear to tell Alice his deepest fears. And Alice is equally stricken – she carries a terrible secret of her own.
Is the truth worth telling if it will destroy everything?
Sara Foster is an excellent storyteller and a nice person to boot 🙂
What Sara always does well:
Dialogue – always realistic, fitting of the age groups involved/the relationships, the times.
Relationships – so well developed and again, realistic.
Surprises – the twists are good and in this one I couldn’t see the revelation coming.
The writing – always engaging.
What more could you want in a book? A great read.
It certainly sounds suspenseful, Carol! And I do like stories that blend past and present like that. Interesting family dynamics, too…
It’s a well told story Margot with a revelation you won’t see coming – very well plotted
my Mum wants this for Christmas 🙂
I am sure she will enjoy it Lily – isn’t it good to be able to buy someone a gift they will really enjoy ?
