Pressure She Must Recover The Time She Lost Before The Time She Has Left Runs OutFeaturing Kate White S Signature Twists And Turns, Have You Seen Me Is A Harrowing Read That Will Keep Readers Guessing Until Its Shocking Ending What Is this it Are there any pages that I forgot to read Seriously How did book end like this It is worse than last 15 minutes of Seven s What s in the box scene Sorry but I think the thrilling book I ve been looking for cannot reach, read at this moment Beep Yep it might have gotten lost at the tunnel The book made an intriguing, exciting start Ally finds herself at her old work place she quit five years ago and she thinks that is her first work day after her short break Then she bumps into her ex lover and also her ex boss Yes, she just faints and finds herself in the ER with short term amnesia She slowly starts to remember she is married, she is freelance finance journalist and she has a secret from her childhood which buggers her lately She keeps some important information about the crime scene she witnessed when she was nine.Well, at first half of the book bored me so much I didn t understand why Ally s husband treated to her wife as if she is Airbnb renter Their cold, meaningless, unfriendly, boring relationship made me yawned I wished I could position toothpicks into my eyes to keep them open Roger, brother of Ally also acted so suspicious and his wife was annoyingly noisy and disturbing gossipy element I also didn t understand the unfinished business between Ally and Damien which made me think, I m reading an angsty romance between two lovers who recently broke up from so many misunderstanding and communication breakdown in the meantime I m listening Led Zeppelin to calm my nerves after the damage this book created on me So Ally hires a private detective to gather lost pieces of her last two days which connects with the murder she witnessed when she was a child but as soon as I read the conclusion of the story I said WHAT WHAT WHAT The bad guy was a little bit obvious from the beginning, wearing a sign on his her head but the revelation part was so tasteless, still boring, meaningless And of course there is tons of misleading and blanks at the story needed to be filled The ending was aimless I felt like the author has been kidnapped and somebody pulled a nasty prank by writing this ending to torture us And Ally seems like blind, deaf and one of the most lost and dumbfounded characters I ve ever read for so long If a person pokes her with a gun, she doesn t find out he is bad guy till she s bleeding to death I want to scream at her to open her eyes and stop acting like Snow White who recently poisoned by a tasty apple and waiting for her prince s awakening kiss.I kept reading this one because there were too many five starred reviews so I got patient and I think the story would go to some different direction and guess what It didn t Overall I m giving two stars and declaring my shiny place in the minority I did everything to enjoy this story and look from the brighter side but pacing, story development, characterization and ending with so many blank spots truly disappointed me.Special thanks to NetGalley and Harper Paperbacksto share this ARC COPY in exchange my honest review I wish I enjoyed this story but unfortunately it didn t work for me Ally, a finance journalist goes to work one morning only to find out she has not worked there in five years Ally has somehow lost 48 hours of her life While trying to figure out what has transpired, many twists and turns are revealed I believe most readers will love this novel. Kate White has done it again Her latest novel, Have You Seen Me stars Ally, who shows up at her old job with no memory of why she shouldn t be there White starts with a bang and keeps the suspense high throughout, weaving together a labyrinth of buried memories and disturbing revelations that blur the lines between what s true and what s not An addictive, up all night stunner. Well, I mostly enjoyed this one.While not a fan of present tense storytelling, this was a very readable book I liked our main character, really liked that she wasn t an idiot, and was very interested in what had happened to her and why.Unfortunately, I didn t love the way our plot and subplots were tied up While I did figure out the who in one subplot, the why was weird and out of left field.I generally liked the author s style and would read the author again, I just found myself disappointed in the way everything wrapped up ARC Provided via Net Galley Kate White delivers another riveting page turner in her new psychological thriller, Have You Seen Me Ally Linden arrives at work soaking wet and missing her key card She quickly runs into her old boss and former lover who is surprised to see her since she hasn t worked there in five years Ally begins to piece back together who she is when she arrives at the hospital remembering she is a financial journalist and married to a man named Hugh However, she can not remember anything from the past two days Ally begins to try to figure out what triggered her to go into a fugue state hiring a detective to help Her situation is further complicated by the fact that she discovered the body of toddler whose murderer was never apprehended when she was only nine Could this somehow be connected with her current predicament Joining Ally on her quest to piece together where she was over the course of two days and find out the root of what caused her to dissociate from herself was a lot of fun There were several twists and turns that I didn t expect Have You Seen Me was very suspenseful and kept me up long past my bedtime Fans of Kate White will not be disappointed with her latest installment Thanks to Edelweiss and Harper Paperbacks for this ARC in exchange for an honest review. Full of lowkey tension that had me on edge the whole time until a slightly rushed ending dampened things a bit BUT still very solid, and a hearty recommendation if, like me, you like suspense novels driven by taught interpersonal conflicts, deep buried secrets, and a heroine who both can t quite trust herself OR anyone she knows This book plays on the amnesia trope nicely without doing a full wipe the main character can remember everything except for the past 72 hours But something BAD must have happened to her in those 72 hours, and now she doesn t know who to trust.The book has a lovely throughline of low, simmering tension I was on edge with the MC, re who to trust A few of the twists and turns were pretty intense, and very engaging I was fully on board until the very end The big reveal is a tick rushed, with a few missed opportunities for rising tension and a big finish I just felt like my suspense, anticipation and excitement was punctured just a beat too early That said, the rest of the resolution of things was satisfying I always appreciate a few chapters after the climax to chew on all the threads coming together, and settling into the MC s feelings about everything.This one will work for those who like a bit of domestic suspense, a bit of Lifestyles of the Unbelievably Rich New Yorker, a bit of intriguing dark childhood secrets, and of course amnesia trope It was a good read, but I do wish the ending had been a homerun I gave this 4 stars mainly because it s Kate White and I ve been a Kate a White fan since Bailey Wiggins in fact that s one of my favorite series even some of White s other stand alone are some of my favorites This book however just didn t work for me the plot was a little boring and just never climaxed Ally was a annoying and some of the other key players just felt like they didn t fit The back story of the little girl Jaycee I didn t see where she came into play For me this was of a 2.5 3 read but I love Kate White so she gets a star on her own Thanks to Netgalley for my advanced ebook copy. I was going to give this 5 stars.but, I really disliked the end It was an awesome book, kept me reading the whole thing in one sitting Then, I felt seriously let down, like, some of the story just didn t come together I feel it needs at least a few chapters to tie up loose ends. I loved this book so much It was everything I hoped it would be and The pacing is perfect, I never lost interest, even if I had to put the book down for a couple days I constantly wanted to keep reading and find out what happened next and get to the bottom of the mystery I had my suspicions of what happened and where the plot was going but I was never 100% sure and in the end, I was completely wrong and didn t see the plot twist coming at all The ending was a little bit rushed but it wasn t a big deal to me Overall, I have really nothing critical to say about Have You Seen Me I haven t enjoyed a book this much in awhile and I d definitely recommend it if you re looking for a good suspenseful mystery to pick up. I was super excited to receive an advanced reader copy of this book to review I enjoy Kate White s writing and really enjoyed her new upcoming psych thriller Wasn t as fast paced as I anticipated but definitely kept me engaged I began it on a Saturday and finished Sunday evening I was eager to get to the end and get answers Sometimes I have an inclination of what s to come this novel had me as clueless as the main character. harpercollinspublisher.4 On a cold, rainy morning, finance journalist Ally Linden arrives early to work in her Manhattan office, only to find that she s forgotten her keycard and needs to have a colleague she s never met let her in When her boss finally arrives, he seems surprised to see her because she hasn t worked there in five years.Ally knows her name, but little else, and it s only after several hours in an emergency room and multiple interviews with the hospital psychiatrist that she begins to piece together important facts she lives on the Upper West Side she s now a freelance personal finance journalist she s married to a lovely man named Hugh But she still can t recall what happened to her during the previous two days When she learns that she s experienced a dissociative fugue state, Ally tries to think of triggers and remembers that she d been seeing a therapist about a traumatic event from her childhood, in which she came across evidence for a murder that was never solved.Desperate to unearth answers, Ally focuses on figuring out where she spent the missing forty eight hours As ominous details of the two days pile up, so does the terrifying pressure she must recover the time she lost before the time she has left runs out.
