What I’m Reading: Have You Seen Me?

I’m on a roll with LOTS of good books from Hoopla.  It seems I haven’t hit a bad one in quite some time.  My latest pick was Have You Seen Me? by Kate White.  I hope I didn’t jinx myself by saying how many good books I’ve listened to lately….

About this book, good.  I was liking it from the very beginning.  It caught my attention and my attention stayed.  I was a little surprised at the ending.  There really were no clues leading up to the twist at the end and sometimes I do like to have a bit of a clue…just so it keeps me guessing.  Overall, it was good though….

Here is what Amazon had to say:On a cold, rainy morning, finance journalist Ally Linden arrives soaked to the bone at her Manhattan office, only to find that she’s forgotten her keycard. When her boss shows, he’s shocked to see her—because, he explains, she hasn’t worked there in five years.

Ally knows her name, but is having trouble coming up with much beyond that, though after a trip to the psychiatric ER, she begins to piece together important facts: she lives on the Upper West Side; she’s now a freelance journalist; she’s married to a terrific man named Hugh. More memories materialize and yet she still can’t recall anything about the previous two days. Diagnosed as having experienced a dissociative state, she starts to wonder if it may have been triggered by something she saw. Could she have witnessed an accident—or worse—had something happened to her?

Desperate for answers, Ally tries to track where she spent the missing days, but every detail she unearths points to an explanation that’s increasingly ominous, and it’s clear someone wants to prevent her from learning where those forty-eight hours went. In order to uncover the truth, Ally must dig deep into the secrets of her past—and outsmart the person who seems determined to silence her.”

Amazon readers gave the book 4.4 stars.  I think I’d agree.  I listened to the book over the course of the weekend.  I found things to do so that I could keep listening.  That’s always a sign it’s a good book.  I’ll be checking to see what other books the author has written.  That’s always a good sign I liked the book as well.

If you’re interested, you can find the book HERE on Amazon.

    I don’t understand- if she’s only missing two days, why did she show up to a job she where she hadn’t worked for FIVE YEARS? That doesn’t make sense!
