Do You Remember? Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Tess Strebel can’t recognize her own face.
She can’t recognize her home. Her bedroom is unfamiliar. And she can’t remember the handsome stranger lying next to her in bed. A stranger who claims he’s her husband.
Tess reads a letter in her own handwriting, composed during a rare lucid day, explaining her life as it now exists: she was in a terrible car accident one year ago. Every morning, she wakes up unable to remember most of the last decade. Including her own wedding.
Tess has no choice but to accept her new life and hope her memory will return. After all, why should she doubt the letter she wrote to herself? Or the kind man from the wedding photos on her dresser who seems to genuinely care about her well-being?
And then Tess receives a text message on her phone. One that changes everything:
"Don’t trust the man who calls himself your husband."

The first chapter of this book is so captivating and unsettling...Tess wakes up next to her husband Harry like any normal day. Except it's not Harry lying in bed next to her. It's not a bedroom she recognizes. The unease mounts as Tess realizes her long hair is now cut short, and most unsettling of all, when she looks in the mirror, she recognizes herself, but she looks several years older.
Seeing her panic, her "husband" Grant gently produces a letter in her handwriting, a letter she wrote to herself. There was an accident a year ago, and her memory has huge gaps.
But an accident a year ago doesn't explain why Tess looks several years older or why her last memory is her ex Harry proposing to her. As this story progresses at a frenetic speed, it doesn't become obvious what's happened to Tess until the last few chapters.
I know many thriller fans are weary of the amnesia trope, but this book does NOT fall under the category of typical. What's happened to Tess is far more sinister and unexpected than a simple accident. Put this author on your radar today! You won't regret it.
Tess Strebel has forgotten all of the above, her entire life. Every morning when she awakens she does not recognize her husband, her home, or even her face when she looks in the mirror. She was in a car accident a year ago and sustained head trauma resulting in amnesia. She spends the entire day learning everything fresh and new only to have forgotten it the next day and having to do it over again. She has even written a letter to herself explaining her current situation, make the best of it and see if her memory returns. She finds writing on her thigh, but it is partially erased and she cannot understand it. Miraculously she still knows how to use her phone and she sees a text message telling her not to trust her husband.
This is the starting point of Freida McFadden’s newest novel “Do You Remember?” However the novel is about forgetting, forgetting everything.
This is an edge of your seat psychological thriller. You will not be able to do anything else until you finish it and I defy you to figure out the ending.
At some point I skipped forward in the book to the last several chapters.
It didn't feel like I missed anything, to be honest.
If ai compare this to her other wonderful books, I'm disappointed.
But when compared to ALL books, it's a unique and fascinating story.
I generally don't enjoy the "person lost their memory" story structures though, so it may just be a matter of personal taste.
Another factor could be that I didn't really have time to sit down and enjoy a book like I had all the time in the world.
Ideally, I should have taken my time to enjoy it as it unfolded.
She is a GREAT writer, so read everything she's written! You won't regret it!
I felt that I was kind of stuck in a Groundhog Day sort of story after every - thing I found out on day 1 seemed like it was going to repeat itself on day 2 and so on. If you feel the same way...keep on reading! I'm really glad I did and as usual with this author, there are huge surprises to come, right up to the very last page! I highly recommend you read this book.
