Okay, so far I already have two names in the hat for this one. Go Angie, go Mindy! Anyway, this book is fabulous. I keep thinking about the movie Sleeping with the Enemy. You know the one starring Julia Roberts? Anyway, that movie was one that kept me on the edge of my seat. This story, Remember to Forget, is similar, but IMHO it's even better. The element of constant fear is not present like with the movie, but the small town feel and her desire to remain hidden and not be found out is the same. I really identify with the heroine. The author did a fabulous job showing a character who is living an unflattering and unlikeable life and you still identify and sympathize with her. I haven't felt like slapping this woman even once. That's impressive considering she is not exactly being honest with the people who seem to care. But trust is an issue. I love watching a fearful, needy person learn to trust, to take emotional baby steps. Maybe that's why I'm a social worker. Bravo, Deb Raney! This one is a keeper.
Oh, and one last thing. From this point forward whenever I mention the book Remember to Forget in a post, all you have to do to win the book is comment on that post and tell me you want to win. And puhleeeze, if you are not in my address book, can you leave some way for me to contact you if you win? Thanks.
