This is still the only cover image I have at the moment! Huge thanks to Cara Frances for my ARC of this book!

About the book (via Goodreads):

In the small, affluent town of Fairview, Connecticut everything seems picture perfect.

Until one night when young Jenny Kramer is attacked at a local party. In the hours immediately after, she is given a controversial drug to medically erase her memory of the violent assault. But, in the weeks and months that follow, as she heals from her physical wounds, and with no factual recall of the attack, Jenny struggles with her raging emotional memory. Her father, Tom, becomes obsessed with his inability to find her attacker and seek justice while her mother, Charlotte, prefers to pretend this horrific event did not touch her perfect country club world.

As they seek help for their daughter, the fault lines within their marriage and their close-knit community emerge from the shadows where they have been hidden for years, and the relentless quest to find the monster who invaded their town – or perhaps lives among them – drive this psychological thriller to a shocking and unexpected conclusion.

My thoughts:

I had seen a lot of buzz surrounding this book on social media before I was lucky enough to get a copy! #mysterythriller was everywhere so I was dying to know more about it!! There was definitely a reason for the hype, All Is Not Forgotten is a superb read!

The book is narrated by Jenny’s psychologist, and is interspersed with first person narratives from the other main characters. The was the book is written makes it very easy to follow.

The premise is excellent. What if you could erase the memories that exist from the attack? How would you deal with the aftermath of such a controversial treatment? How do you explain the emotions that still exist even though you can’t remember the actual assault happening?

All Is Not Forgotten is a spectacular thriller, it twists in places you wouldn’t have ever expected! Right from the outset you are invested in the story, as eager as Jenny and her parents to discover the perpetrator of the heinous crime.

At times, the book may be hard going for those of a sensitive nature as the attack is described in great detail and there were moments for me where I felt more than a little uncomfortable while reading it.

That being said, All Is Not Forgotten is an absolutely riveting read. It kept my attention from the very first page and did not let me go until the very last full stop. It completely exceeded my expectations, and left me feeling more than a little bit emotionally rung out by the end of it.

I cannot recommend All Is Not Forgotten highly enough. This book is character-rich, full of tension and it keeps you reading until you come to the unexpected yet brilliant final few chapters. It just doesn’t let up, in the best possible way!

I gave All Is Not Forgotten 5 easy stars on Goodreads. It is most definitely a book to watch out for. It’s released in July but you can pre-order your copy by clicking the link below!

  1. Great review! I’m really looking forward to reading this one. I have it scheduled to read after I finish my current read–The Midnight Watch by David Dyer–and the next one–Mrs. Lee & Mrs. Gray by Dorothy Love. Having read your review, it’s going to be even more difficult to wait it out and keep to my schedule!

      1. I am sorely tempted to do the same with mine! I’ve had this one for a while, but since I read based on release date, it got pushed back several times.
