Forget Me Not by A.M. Taylor Review

This was a slow-burning mystery for me. It took a while before something actually happened and caught my attention. Once it did, it wasn’t bad, it was just a bit too slow for my liking. 

The protagonist, Maddie, is trying to solve the mystery of her missing friend from 10 years ago, after a terrible event happens that she thinks is connected. This was a great premise, but I do wish there would have been more investigating on behalf of Maddie. I felt like most of the book she was running in circles with a “deer caught in the headlight” look. 

However, I did love that it was from the perspective of Nora’s friend. It solidifies the idea of how friendships can be very deep-rooted and can have a major impact on our lives.

The ending was a bit of a surprise (the foreshowing kind of gave it away), but that being said, the ending was my favorite part of the novel. That’s when, for me, the action really started. Otherwise, I felt like the chapters kept repeating themselves, with a lot of flashbacks that didn’t add that much to the story, in my opinion. Plus, the chapters were quite long.

Still a good story and the ending was wrapped up pretty good. I recommend if you enjoy slow burning novels.

Thank you to Harper Impulse and Killer Reads for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions

When Maddie met Nora, their friendship felt as easy as breathing. And when Nora disappeared, all the air went with her. Without her best friend, Maddie’s life became impossible.

Ten years later, Nora is still missing and Maddie is still searching. People have been questioned. People have even been accused. But no one has managed to find Nora.

Then, in the same spot where Nora went missing, the murdered body of Nora’s little sister is found. Convinced this is no coincidence, Maddie resolves to uncover the killer and find Nora – dead or alive.

But will she be able to cope, when we learn what really happened to Nora…?
