When Chloe Daniels regains consciousness after a car accident, she doesn’t recognize her own family, and she isn’t sure they are telling her the full truth of what happened before her accident. The premise of this book is so chilling and suspenseful. It truly stands out from other books that deal with memory loss as well. Michelle Adams has a unique voice and perspective, and I enjoyed Between the Lies so much I purchased my own finished copy! This is a fantastic psychological thriller!
Chloe Daniels wakes in a hospital with no memory of what happened before. She doesn’t recognize her family. She doesn’t know who she is. She doesn’t remember who she was. A car accident is what they told her. But now she is isolated at her family’s home, trying to regain her strength and sense of self. But things don’t quite add up. Her family isn’t telling her something. They are lying to her. And what about her father and his therapy sessions he conducts with Chloe? The more Chloe uncovers, the more she realizes she can’t trust those she is supposed to love the most.
Chloe is a truly fascinating character. As opposed to how readers connect with most leads, Chloe is actually sort of a non-character at the beginning. She doesn’t know exactly who she is or what her life is, so through the early part of the novel, we get to know Chloe as Chloe gets to know herself. It’s an interesting way to develop a character, because we are shocked by the details of her life we learn right along with her. We are placed in her shoes.
As Chloe learns more about her life, there are these fascinating moments where Chloe’s moral compass kicks in and we see her doubt whether she was the type of person she wants to be. She is often shocked by behaviors or actions other describes, and without context, motive, and feelings, she doesn’t always know how to reconcile those stories with who she is now. It’s truly a fantastic and gripping way to learn about a character, seeing her question what she learns about herself. And all of that contributes to her confusion over who is lying to her—because what she hears about her life doesn’t sound like who she is at all. And maybe it isn’t who she is!
I don’t want to say much else, because I don’t want to spoil any of Chloe’s stories, but I will say I loved this novel! Very suspenseful and unique, and Michelle Adams is so talented as a writer. It was so compelling learning about Chloe’s life as she does, trying to make sense of the stories she is told and the fragments of memories that come back to her. A fantastic thriller that readers will love!
Chloe, wakes up in the hospital following a car accident and cannot remember anything, not her name, her family, nothing. Her parent and sister are trying to help her remember. Her father, who is a psychiatrist is trying to help her through hypnosis. She starts to remember snippets of things but does not know if they are real or imaginary. And then she find out that her parents and sister have been lying to her. And as she peals back their lies, she starts to remember things about her life and what happened the night of the accident.
Like I said to me the first part of the book was a bit slow, and then as Chloe starting remembering bits it started to pick up. I did have most of it figured out. So the whole big reveal was not a shock to me. Though did have tears in my eyes as it was all spelled out though. And I did like how the author ended the book, I think that was nicely done.
Cannot really say I cared for the characters of the book, except for Chloe. Her father was a jerk, and her mother and sister were kind of flat and distant. I did like Chloe though. She was determined to find out what happened no matter what her family said. She kept fighting and pushing forward.
The knowledge she has about herself is limited. She knows that she is 32 years old. Before the accident, she worked as a lawyer. And, she has a house of her own not far from her family's estate.
Something happened that night that nobody wants her to remember. There is something about her life before the accident that they don't want to tell her. They are keeping the truth from her. She doesn't believe a word they say. She had a life she can't remember & the people who should be helping her have done nothing but lie to her.
Her father, a psychiatrist, believes that by creating false memories under hypnosis, he can get Chloe to believe in something that has never happened & also, to forget something that actually has.
It's only a matter of time before Chloe starts to remember more about the life she used to live. Little by little, snippets of her memory return. Chloe visits the places from her past in order to recall lost memories. At some point, she visits the site of her accident. She needs to remember the painful memories of that night, which will in turn give her the freedom to move on with her future.
Michelle does a phenomenal job taking her readers inside Chloe’s amnesiacs mind post car accident. The detail of how she is feeling and coping is just incredible. You could tell she was really passionate about this character and wanted to bring out the best in this scene. It was an incredible original story with a lot of depth to it.
There is a good lesson in this book that I walked away with. Trust has to be earned not given. Don’t believe everything everyone tells you. Chloe found this out the hard way.
One thing is for sure Michelle is an incredible storyteller with an amazing imagination!!
This book had an amazing cast of characters and thrilling storyline I would love to see this be made into a Netflix Original Movie. I think it would do really well.
