My rating:

Fifteen years ago Ellen Smith vanished from the woods near her small Welsh village. Never to be seen again.

Eight people were in the woods that night: eight splintered lives, eight people hiding a terrible secret. But who can remember the truth?

Now, Ellen’s best friend, Detective Ava Cole is all grown up back in the village where it all began, and everyone is asking the same question. What really happened to Ellen?

Filled with shocking discoveries and traumatic memories this fast paced thriller is perfect for fans of Friend Request and Close to Home.

Remember Me, the debut psychological thriller from D. E. White, certainly has the right title; I'll definitely remember it but for all the wrong reasons I'm afraid. The main issues were too many characters and too many different threads to the story that my way of relaxing turned into such a slog. I am not a fan of writing negative reviews and usually, there are redeeming features to help balance out my critique, but I am hard-pressed to find any here sadly.

The plot concepts were all sound and could've led to an exciting, compelling read, but there were far too many ideas and they didn't all belong in the same book. It was also rather slow in terms of pacing, which didn't exactly help. It indeed had its moments, but they were far and few between and not enough to keep me interested in finding out what happened in the end. The writing was pretty decent, so I hope the authors next book is better than this turned out to be.

Many thanks to HQ Digital for an ARC.
