    I Know Who You Are

    Loved this. Found myself forgetting to breathe at times. Nail bitingly good.

    All An Act

    3.5 Stars This could have been a superb book, a shining example of the genre. Unfortunately, it all goes a little bit off the rails and strays in to territory that is, quite frankly, absurd bordering on the ridiculous. This is a real shame as the author has worked hard to get the reader invested in the characters, to get them as confused by the events as Aimee is and then off we wander in to sensationalism and baffling decisions. The tale does tug itself back in to line for the denouement but barely. What Ms Feeney does startlingly well here are the flashbacks to Aimee's early years, her formative years. Importantly the years where she learned to act, to become someone else to please others. The voice of young Aimee comes through wonderfully in the written word and feels, dare I say it, authentic. The adult Aimee is far more circumspect and cautious, jealously guarding her privacy. The contrast between the two voices works well and even manages to create a bit of tension between the two versions of Aimee we are introduced to. The insecure actress trope did grate on me a little, it is so overused and it did feel a little slapped on; particularly as Aimee is clearly resourceful and tough so to paint the adult as this fragile woman just didn't really work once you get a few chapters in. On top of that you have a red herring stalker that even if you are reading casually you can see through. Couple this with a police investigation that we only really see from Aimee's perspective that is, not to put too fine a point on it, is facile and it can make for a very frustrating read. This is certainly no procedural drama. The bits that work do so very well but there is such a lot of filler that I did become frustrated with Aimee and her adult whiny neediness. Child Aimee is a much more rounded character, pity there is so little of her remaining in the adult. Their are two events that could be described as the "killer twist" one of which invites us to suspend disbelief that she genuinely did not recognise this person from her past, the other loses some of it's impact because it comes after such ridiculousness. Overall I did enjoy the read. However, I would not rush out to buy another book by the author. THIS IS AN HONEST AND UNBIASED REVIEW OF A FREE COPY OF THE BOOK RECEIVED VIA THE PIGEONHOLE.

    Brilliant!

    If your favoured reading material is a novel with a good sprinkling of darkness, surprise, doubt, twists and lies, then feel free to read this great book by Alice Feeney - I Know Who You Are. The book was really big surprise, but as this was my first novel by Alice Feeney, I had no particular expectations, either great or otherwise. Alice Feeney’s début, Sometimes I Lie, received such wonderful praise that others' expectations were very high for this novel. This was a gripping story, full of twists and turns, wondering whether the narrator was telling the truth or not. Aimee Sinclair wakes up to find her husband gone, and she's no idea what has happened. As the story progresses, the reader gradually learns more about Aimee's past and the bearing it has on her, currently. While the police investigate her for the suspected murder of her husband, the story keeps the reader in suspense and on tenterhooks. Did Aimee kill her husband or will the killer be someone else? Set in London, the story was based around two main characters - Aimee & Ben Sinclair. It was written from both the past and present perspectives of Aimee. What really worked for me was the distinction between the voice of the adult Aimee a successful, but insecure, actress who had a rocky marriage to Ben. and the voice of five-year-old Aimee who led a very secretive and tragic childhood. The writing style was absolutely wonderful and I found myself enjoying the story immensely, in this very well written and fast paced read. The pacing of the book was spot on though there was not enough explanation as to why the bad do what they do. Hooked from the start, the story was good, but the way it was told was the most enjoyable part. Alice Feeney’s ability to construct such creative twists was amazing and I must give full credit to her for coming up with some wicked, cunning and crazy moments and a jaw-dropping ending! The final twist was fantastic - I definitely didn't see it coming! I Know Who You Are was a stand-out novel and was well worth the time invested. Overall, this was a really interesting story with some unexpected turns and there were a lot of things to enjoy about it. I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel, at my own request, from HQ via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

    Fantastic start ... Fantasy ending

    I loved the way Alice Feeney got me hooked in to this novel. Switching between past & present in short chapters makes for addictive reading. I just had to find out more about little Aimee, John and Maggie. Some of the plot reveals are superb and I just had to read on. However, some of final truths just seemed too far fetched - almost an impossible combination of events culminating in a fantasy ending I loved reading the book but felt let down by the final revelations
