Close to Me by Amanda Reynolds: review.
The idea for the plot is good: a memory loss is always intriguing and the story goes back and forth adding more tension to the drama.However, I had a hard time finishing this book and felt truly sad after reading it.
This is novel about a dysfunctional family whose members don't love each other the way they should. We don't really know why or if they ever had a good relationship except for in their holiday pictures. We only know that they seemingly ignore this fact and they keep on interacting with each other until the situation becomes unbearable.
If you are looking for an entertaining novel about the ups and downs of a happy family with a positive outcome, this novel may not appeal to you . On the other hand, if you enjoy reading about troubled families and unloving relationships with a little bit of mystery and twisted characters, this may be a good book for you.
