Oddly enough, I was just replying to Tracy at Pen and Paper about judging a book by it's cover. I remark on that because I saw Forget Me posted on GoodReads as a giveaway, which I didn't win of course, but I really loved the cover. It really sets a tone. So, I downloaded a sample once it was available which is the subject of this installment of To Buy or Not to Buy.
Forget Me by K.A. Harrington
Book Description (From Amazon):
Publication Date: August 7, 2014
Two names. One face. A dangerous secret exposed.
Morgan never minded her boyfriend Flynn’s dark and private nature. She found it mysterious and alluring. But now he’s dead, and she can’t move on. She feels much like her dying town, River’s End, with its overgrown amusement park and abandoned houses: once happy . . . now fading away.
Hoping for some closure, Morgan uploads her only picture of Flynn to the social media site FriendShare along with a note to say good-bye. But she’s shocked when the facial recognition software suggests she tag him as Evan Murphy. She’s never heard of Evan. A quick search reveals that he lives in a nearby town and looks exactly like Flynn. Same eyes, nose, jawline. Only this boy is very much alive. Digging through layers of secrets, Morgan questions everything she thought she knew about her town, her boyfriend, and even her parents’ involvement in this massive web of lies.
Forget Me is a heart-pounding novel that draws you in and keeps you guessing until the very end.
My First Impression:
I put this book on my wish list because I really liked the cover. It’s moody and mysterious. And I really couldn't wait until the book was released so I could check it out.
Morgan is heading to a party by herself because her boyfriend Flynn said he had plans with family. ON the way to the party, she sees him on the side of the road. He explains that he is just out thinking. When she gets out the car so she can look him in the face, he tells her to get back in the car and jumps in the passenger side. He says he wants to go anywhere and be with her and then starts the car for her. He keeps checking the road behind them as she drives.
Morgan demands to know what is going on with him and just as suddenly, Flynn tells her to pull over and let him out of the car. He tells her he doesn't want to go to the party, that he only wants to be with her. Morgan suggests they go somewhere and talk, but he doesn't want to talk either. He then accuses her of checking up on him and tells her he doesn't want this anymore.
He gets out of the car and starts walking down the road when he gets run down by a SUV that kept driving.
Based on the book description, I’d say this has enough mystery to be interesting. There are many questions in need of answers, the primary one being why was Flynn out alone on a darkened road and why did he keep looking down it?
To buy. And so I have.
