to her writing style, qualities that speak directly to my reader s heart.Strawser has taken a bit of flak for the miscategorization of her novels mostly from readers under the assumption her work resides in the suspense genre, for one reason or another which somehow feels unfair So, let s take a minute to clear the air Similar to her two previous novels, Forget You Know Me is women s fiction with a very slight edge of suspense, not a thriller Regardless of what you might glean from the blurbs floating around, you won t find a true suspense novel within these pages, no matter how you approach it What you ll find instead, a three dimensional cast ready to ensnare readers with their relatable relationship woes and full gamut of emotions The heartbeat of this story is the exploration of relationships from the perspective of marriage, friendships and siblings and the very real notion that it takes effort from both sides to maintain a bond No matter how hard we try to avoid it, sometimes relationship change Time and distance leads to space and that closeness slips away People move on We no longer know one another the way we once did.For Molly and Liza, it was a no brainer best friends since childhood they would always be each other s number one Always Well, until Molly s marriage to Daniel and the addition of their two children to the mix Followed by Liza s urge to start over somewhere new, putting Cincinnati in her rearview, and Chicago on the horizon Chicago also meant the addition of lovable Max, Liza s everyday bestie Glasses of wine shared over Skype, dubbed girls night , starts the true unraveling of Molly and Liza It s been a while since they ve taken the time for one another, meaning things start off on somewhat of an awkward note When they cut through the phoniness and really start to reconnect, it s Molly s daughter that puts things on hold Sitting in Molly s living room alone, waiting for her to return to the screen, Liza sees a masked intruder enter her friend s house, inciting mass panic on her end So, why is it that Molly gives Liza the brushoff later via text of all things insisting everything is fine And why does she practically slam the door in Liza s face the next morning after she drives through the night on a hunch that something just isn t right Ok, I know what you re thinking a masked intruder Yes, it s one heck of an opening, but again, this is not a thriller so, let those thoughts go And prepare to focus on the people at hand, instead Molly, Daniel and Liza take over, each telling their version of how they ended up here For Molly and Daniel it s a lonely marriage haunted by resentment and years of pain For Liza, it s the loss of her best friend for reasons unknown and the longing to return to Cincinnati, even if it feels like a failure somehow It s a battle of hurt, ego and turning elsewhere for comfort Is it ever too late to get back what you once had I think it s probably fair to say we ve all experienced the loss of a close relationship at one time or another, which is what makes this novel so fascinating With her writing prowess Jessica Strawser delivers an emotionally charged look at the lengths some of us will go to start over, to once again have that person close While this is nowhere near what I would consider a fast paced novel, I found myself so enraptured with the characters especially Liza and her battle with fate vs luck I couldn t bear to set it down Meaning, I spent the better part of a day devouring a book I had planned to savor Fingers crossed Ms Strawser is hard at work on her next release A HUGE thank you to St Martin s Press for providing my treasured review copy flag 263 likesLike see review View all 61 comments Sep 15, 2018 Larry H rated it liked

Cincinnati to Chicago for a job, it put a real strain on their friendship, and that strain began working its way into Molly and Daniel s marriage as well.But one night while Daniel was on business travel, Molly and Liza are determined to remedy their lack of connection Once Molly s kids are asleep the two settle down to a long Skype chat, complete with wine For a few minutes, things seem like they used to and then one of the kids begins crying for Molly While she attends to her daughter, Liza finds herself staring at the blank computer screenand then suddenly she sees a masked man, dressed all in black, come into the frame Liza screams for Molly, tries calling her cell phone, but the intruder closes the computer screen.Liza is at her wits end She is in a panic, constantly trying to reach Molly, and then eventually calling 911 to see if they can make sure everything is okay But when Molly finally responds via text, no less her replies are curt, leaving Liza confused Suspecting something complicated is occurring, Liza decides to drive to Cincinnati to see Molly herself, but after driving all night, she is sent away following an angry confrontation that Liza doesn t understand at all.Meanwhile, Daniel, who returned early from his business trip, doesn t understand why Molly didn t even call him about the intruder, nor can he figure out why Molly would have sent Liza away with such anger What is she hiding from him He s curious to know, although he isn t without secrets of his own, secrets which could upend all of their lives.When Liza returns home and discovers she narrowly avoided a brush with disaster, it sends her into a tailspin when coupled with the apparent dissolution of her and Molly s friendship She s still determined to find out what Molly is hiding from her, but she also needs to pull her own life together, as everything seems to be spinning out of control.I had been under the impression that Forget You Know Me was a thriller, but while it has a tension filled, pulse pounding start, it becomes an exploration of the stresses, the secrets, and the lies that threaten to tear our relationships apart It s a book about marriage and friendship, of fear and bravery, of giving voice to the things that threaten to destroy us.While many of the problems facing the characters become obvious, the mystery of the masked man lingers, although many may figure out his identity For me, it almost was a distraction once it became apparent that the book wasn t really focused on that incident as much as everyone s problems At times I felt that the book wasn t quite sure what it wanted to be, and I wondered whether one incident in Liza s life would wind up coming back into the plot as well.I like the way Jessica Strawser writes, and really enjoyed her last novel, Not That I Could Tell see my review , which was released earlier this year I didn t feel that this book was as strong, because the characters aren t all that likable, and because I really didn t know what to expect from the overall story However, even though it was a tiny bit slow at times, I couldn t stop reading it, because I needed to know where she was going to take the story.Once you understand this isn t a thriller, you may be able to enjoy the book for its storytelling, and for the twists and turns Strawser throws in She s definitely a talented writer, one who can take ordinary situations and turn them into drama.NetGalley and St Martin s Press provided me an advance copy of the book in exchange for an unbiased review Thanks for making this

the authorities When she finally contacts her friend the next day, she is stunned by her friend s icy reception which ends with anger and hostility.The opening of the book is strong and instantly grabbed my attention Molly s reaction to Liza being concerned had me scratching my head Just what the heck is going on When Liza returns home, she gets another shock Then there is Daniel, Molly s husband who was away on a business trip and is concerned when his wife fails to mention an intruder being in their home Ummm that is huge, why not mention it Sure, their relationship has been strained and over the years, they too have had some distance come into their relationship as hurt, resentment and lack of communication crept into their lives.It is obvious that there is going on than meets the eye The opening scenes along with the book description may make this book look like a thriller but it is really a look at relationships and how relationships can become distant, lonely and lose their luster It shows how lack of validation in a relationship can damage it How people want to be acknowledged, heard and respected It also shows the effects of secrets and how one act of bad judgement, once committed begins to snowball until one is making one poor decision after another It s a look at what happens when you get in over your head and you don t ask for help Relationships Love Distance Secrets Resentment Guilt Intruder.After the intense beginning, this book slows down and has a slower pace as it explores the relationships of the main characters Strawser is a gifted writer but even with her great writing, this one just didn t blow me away Having said that, I did enjoy this book especially how the Author showed how sometimes life gets in the way and individuals need to make time for their relationships Friendship is important Making time for those in our lives is important Communication is important I enjoyed Liza but found that I never warmed to Molly or Daniel as I would have liked I really enjoyed Strawser s other book Not that I could tell and had high hopes for this one For me this was just a little too slow I would advise everyone to keep in mind that this book is about friendships, marriage, relationships, choices, secrets and lies It s a slow burn which is satisfying but if you are looking for a lot of action, you may be disappointed This was a solid 3 star read for meThank you to St Martin s Press and NetGalley who provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review All the thoughts and opinions expressed in this

suspense thriller novel but it didn t end up working out that way Regardless of reason, the important thing is to NOT go into this book expecting a thriller or even domestic suspense for that matter because the book definitely won t deliver on either front.Just like with her previous 2 novels her debut Almost Missed You as well as her sopho novel Not That I Could Tell , Strawser starts off her story with an explosive scenario in this case, it is one of the main characters Liza video chatting with her best friend Molly one night while her husband is away on a business trip, when Molly steps away to tend to her kids and suddenly, through her laptop s webcam, Liza sees a masked intruder entering Molly s house The screen goes blank and when Liza s attempts to confirm Molly s safety prove unsuccessful, she makes the rash decision to drive hours across state lines Liza is in Chicago, Molly is in Cincinnati to check on her, only to have her best friend be annoyed by her unexpected appearance and subsequently slam the door in her face Angry and saddened, Liza returns home to Chicago, only to find out that she is about to have a near miss of her own Reading the first chapter with the above opening, plus the vagueness of the summary describing the book itself, I can see where the misunderstanding of this being a suspense thriller may possibly come from Despite the shocking incident that opens the story though, it is apparent a few chapters in that the incident serves merely as a catalyst to jump start the story after that, it becomes background noise of sorts, a plot point placed on the back burner in order to make way for the real plot mostly a character driven exploration of relationships, marriage, family, friendship, and just how badly lies and secrets can drive even the closest of friends and family apart One of Strawser s talents as a writer is her ability to draw up realistic portrayals of characters whom we can all relate to in one way or another characters who are flawed and vulnerable and often dealing with issues that ordinary people face on a near daily basis Going deep into her characters minds and giving us a thorough understanding of their thought process and rationale, we get to know Strawser s characters intimately, though I will admit that with this particular book, it goes a little too deep in the sense that at certain points, it felt like some of the characters were overthinking and overanalyzing their situations a bit too much This made the story a bit tedious to read at times, as some parts seemed to ramble on a bit unnecessarily With that said though, I still enjoyed the book overall and the topics explored did leave me with some food for thought afterwards, which is always a good thing when it comes to my reading.This is the third novel of Jessica Strawser s that I ve read and though none of her 3 books thus far have made it to my favorites list, I still enjoyed reading each one I like the way Strawser writes and also the strength of her storytelling, which manages to keep me engaged and interested in the story even though there might not be much going on in it This is an author whose books I know I will continue to read and look forward to each new release Received ARC from St Martin s Press via NetGalley flag 35 likesLike see review View all 12 comments Nov 29, 2018 Carol rated it liked it

    I grew bored with Molly and Daniel posthaste, but enjoyed Liza s story, her relationship with Henry, the pilot and the excellent plot connection to her near miss life threatening experience.

    Overall though, FORGET YOU KNOW ME was a bit of a tedious read for me , but does peak my interest to where Jessica Strawser might go nextrhaps a true thriller.

free, electronic ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review Molly and Liza have friends for years Even when Molly got married and Liza moved away, the two have retained their strong bond One night, during a video call, Liza sees an intruder in Molly s house and, worried for her friends safety, she drives all night to ensure her friend is not in danger However, Molly seems almost put out by Liza s unexpected arrival, claiming all is well and practically slamming the door in her face Liza is convinced their friendship is over, but when other secrets are revealed and Liza has a close call of her own, both Liza and Molly are left with no one but each other to uncover the mystery Forget You Know Me is the third novel by author Jessica Strawser I was a huge fan of Almost Missed You and although I have not yet read Not That I Could Tell , I heard great things Know Me is an entertaining women s fiction novel, which, heads up, is not my favourite genre I found the writing to be creative and of course, Strawser is talented, but I was not engaged by this novel The plot was slow moving and the novel itself was one of those daily life stories, where we hear about what Liza and Molly ate for breakfast or spent their day, instead of focusing on the mysterious stranger and its implications Liza was a wonderful character, and I thoroughly rooted for her the entire way and although I was not a huge fan of Molly at first, she grew on me as I began to understand her motivations and flaws The fact that this novel did not have many characters was a huge draw, as the plot was not difficult to follow The friendship between Liza and Molly was the basis of the book How the two met, how they have grown apart in recent years, and the drastic events that bring them together now Know Me speaks to the realities of an adult female friendship, torn apart by relationships and distance, and the challenge it takes from both parties to maintain its importance This aspect of the plot is obviously relatable, and the challenges are depicted honestly and openly, showing both parties as being mutually responsible for the slow drift of the friendship I would ve preferred action and drama, as opposed to daily life adult struggles I get enough of that in my own daily adult life but the novel itself was entertaining, and Strawser is definitely a top notch writer More mystery and suspense and this novel would ve been my exact cup of tea, but fans of women s fiction will eat up this novel I can t help but read Strawser s works, as I am always wowed by her writing chops, but I do look forward to a little excitement in her next one flag 28 likesLike see review View all 16 comments Sep 30, 2018 Selena rated it liked it review of another edition I received a free e copy of

all the overthinking of the two women characters, I often felt overwhelmed reading the story Which brings me to why I probably enjoyed the side characters than the main charactersthe side characters

through the night to race to the rescue, Molly gives Liza the cold shoulder, not even inviting her in It is almost as if Molly has told Liza to forget she even knows her The premise is a good one, but the title is a problem It sets up an expectation of a thriller, which this book isn t Even lamer, it is based on a quote that nobody actually even says Moving on As we move deeper into character, we see what each of them is dealing with Liza is lonely and dissatisfied A tragedy closer to her own home plays out while she is still in the car returning from Cincinnati, and she is shaken by it Meanwhile, Molly has an autoimmune condition that creates chronic pain, and we learn that because she uses experimental pain treatments, she is deep in debt to a predatory lender She doesn t want to tell her husband Daniel what she has done meanwhile, she is developing a close bond with the male neighbor whose daughter plays with hers He is a widower, and easy to talk to At some point, she has to choose whether to remain in her marriage or step away and try again with this other guy I enjoy Liza s character She s sassy, smart, and hopeful I enjoy seeing her interact with her family once she is near them again I also like Daniel, the spouse in Molly s troubled marriage Molly, on the other hand, is a pill, but I am not sure the author intends her to be We see a lot of the challenges that chronic pain presents, but do we want to Some that experience chronic pain in their own lives may find some validation here some of us with chronic pain issues read fiction to escape it, and we don t necessarily need this reminder Ultimately, this is of a relationship story, and what little mystery it contains the guy in the mask is hardly even part of it, and his identity proves to be fizzle than pop I suspect this story might receive accolades of it were titled and marketed as a romance or even just straight fiction However, Strawser has made a name for herself with psychological mysteries which I enjoyed a good deal also and by sticking to her brand, she may see some good sales The question is whether her readers will still be receptive once they read it I hate to be the wet blanket here, because Strawser is a capable writer I look forward to seeing what she writes next This book comes out February 5, and I recommend it to Strawser s fans, but get it free or cheap unless your
