    2. This is a very enthralling psychological thriller with some great mystery thrown in. I found this book to very addictive and read it in two sittings, it is full of excitement, tension and suspense. It really is a story of what goes on behind closed doors, the interaction of family and their agenda's , secrets and desires.Rose looses her daughter Viviene, we are not sure how her death has occurred, is it a suicide or something more sinister? Viviene and Rose have never been close and slowly the c [...]

    3. The story starts with an intriguing premise. A dead body lies at someone’s feet but we don’t know who the person standing over the body is or whether the death is by suicide or murder. With chapters told in the first person by Vivien’s mother Rose and also by way of flashbacks narrated by Vivien, a picture is slowly painted of the truth of Vivien’s life. Rose has never been that close to Vivien, she loved her, but as a single mother struggling with a young child and trying to build a car [...]

    4. Forget Me Not was a really good psychological thriller - one of those eminently readable clever books that really keep me involved, some intriguing if often dislikeable characters and a beautifully twisted storyline.Rose and her daughter Vivian are estranged, for what reason we do not know. When Vivian is found dead in a suspected suicide, Rose tries to piece together the minutae of her daughters life. But the police are questioning and things may not be at all straightforward - yet Rose is dete [...]

    5. Rose is mourning the recent death of her daughter Vivian in this psychological drama, but just how did Vivian die? For much of the read we don’t really know what happened, although we can guess, and guess again when more characters are introduced. However, we don’t find out exactly what happened to Vivian until right at the end of the read. Rose wants to help son in law Ben bring up her granddaughter Lexie, but Ben is reluctant – after all Rose has been rather a distant mother in law and g [...]

    6. I found Forget Me Not to be an engaging and tantalising psychological thriller. Really enjoyed this book finding Luana Lewis’s writing very readable and the story well written encouraging the reader to keep going and wanting to know the truth. Definitely in my view worth a read and an author on her second novel is one to watch.We follow Rose as she comes to terms with the tragic loss of her daughter Vivien. It seems to be a case of suicide but the police are asking questions and don’t seem t [...]

    7. The first time I saw it, I was immediately attracted to this book's cover. I like the contrasting effect the bright blue forget-me-nots have over the rest of the cover that is chiefly black. Reading the intriguing blurb, only reinforced my wish to read the book.This is a very tense, compelling and at times emotional read that kept me on my toes throughout. Unfortunately when I started this book, I was caught up with extra hours at work and I ended up frustrated, longing to immerse myself once ag [...]

    10. This one is a good mystery, not exactly a thriller though. More character based than action packed. Kept me interested all the way and guessing about the background of the mysterious death in question. Good plot, decent ending. 3.5 stars.

    11. Forget Me Not is the second novel from Luana Lewis. I reviewed her first book, Don't Stand So Close in February 2014.Reading back through my review of Don't Stand So Close, I see that I commented on the reliability of the narrators in that story. It's clear after reading Forget Me Not that Luana Lewis excels in creating dark, disconcerting characters. Once again, the reader will struggle to know just who or what to believe. Populated by a troupe of players who confound and amaze in turn, this re [...]

    12. Wow. Read this book in under a day. Absolutely loved it. Full of unlikeable characters and lots of red herrings thrown in! Was totally gripped throughout and highly recommend this book.

    13. Another psychological thriller that I just lovedd I didn't see the twist coming. The book was filled with red herrings, and because of those I had my suspicions about the underlying story, but I was wrong. This isn't a very long read, at 299 pages, but those pages definitely flew by and I was totally gripped. There was a good mix of characters to love and hate, and the overriding feeling that not everyone was always telling the truth was always there. I also thought that the novel was very well [...]

    15. I have been snatching every minute possible today to read this book to its dramatic climax. Luana Lewis first book Don't Stand So Close was one of my stand out holiday reads from last year so I was always going to want to get my hands on an early copy of her second book and gobble it up!Rose doesn't seem to react the way we expect after the death, possibly suicide, of her only daughter Vivian. Very early on in the story we realise that they did not have anything near a normal mother-daughter rel [...]

    17. Very easy read, fine thriller, satisfying ending! You can't stop guessing , you keep turning pages to find a clue! In the end it only seems that it COULD have happened!

    18. "Forget Me Not" is the first book by Luana Lewis that I've read, but it blew me away so much that I will be keeping my eye on her next releases for sure, and am going to check her debut novel as well. From the very beginning "Forget Me Not" has just sucked me in and I couldn't put it down - I, in fact, read it in a little more than only one day - I was simply drawn in. Even though the subject of this novel doesn't belong to the most optimistic ones (what an understatement on my part), it was wri [...]

    19. What this book is about:When Vivien, mother of 8-year-old Lexi and wife of a rich businessman, Ben, is found dead in her bathroom, the investigators are not sure whether it was a suicide or a murder. Rose is devastated by the tragic death of her daughter but she is trying to keep it together for the sake of her granddaughter while Vivien's life is decomposed right before her eyes and dark secrets are slowly revealed. Vivien didn't have the perfect life that everybody thought after all.This is my [...]

    20. To Luana Lewisease keep them coming! I absolutely loved Don't Stand So Close and was excited to see this second novel. Like the first book by the author, I BREEZED through it. It has been a roller coaster of a year of reading for me this year. I have read some great books, and then others some books that I almost abandoned. I am glad to have ended the year on a really good book.A tragic suicide? When Rose’s daughter, Vivien, is found dead in a suspected suicide, Rose has questions nobody can a [...]

    21. The prologue of Forget Me Not is interesting, ending with the line, ‘ I am not really here, I never was,’ – the suspense is there from the beginning.Reading about Rose, Vivian’s mother, I wondered what the hell her problem was, her daughter has just been found dead in the bathroom, and she just seems so cold, as if she is hiding something.Even before Vivians death, you can tell the characters have not been happy. There is much to learn about them and the secrets they keep.Rose is the nar [...]

    22. Forget Me Not, by Luana Lewis, is a psychological drama about grief, guilt and family secrets. It explores the emotional impact of upbringing, the guilt of a working mother, and the tightrope family members walk between confronting difficult issues and maintaining a comfortable home life.Most of the story is told from the point of view of Rose, a senior neonatal nurse whose grown up daughter, Vivien, has been found dead in her bathroom. It is unclear if Vivien took her own life or if she was mur [...]

    23. When Rose’s daughter Vivien meets with an untimely death, leaving behind a husband and 8-year-old daughter, Rose must come to grips with a range of emotions. Guilt, for putting her work as a senior nurse before her daughter when she was a small child. Self-recrimination that she has not tried harder to repair the rift that has led to their estrangement over the last few years. Grief, that she will now never be able to make things right with her daughter. And fear, that she will not be involved [...]

    24. With a prologue entitled 'The day she died' I knew straight away that I was going to be up all night reading this book, and I wasn't wrong. I would have read it in one sitting had I not needed to eat and feed my I'm a Celebrity addiction.The clever hook from the prologue is that we don't know who finds the body of Vivien. Indeed, what kind of person would find a dead body and not report it? Could it be the same person who killed her, or was it a suicide as it appears? So many questions were flyi [...]

    25. I somehow overlooked putting this on at the time, so here is my review.I can't believe so many loved this book. Supposedly a psychological thriller, there was nothing thrilling about it. A mystery perhaps but a very simplistic one. For me the story dragged on too slowly and I didn't warm to any of the characters, they were all pretty obnoxious. The only thing that kept me reading was to find out how Vivien had actually died but by the time we got to that I didn't care anymore. Not recommended.

    26. What a great book! I was hooked from the minute I began to read. The characters became so real and the plot so nerve-tingling tense, that I could not put this book down. By the time I got to the last few chapters, I found myself reading faster so that I could find out what would happen next. There's a cracking pace here and an author showing a great deal of skill in setting up atmosphere and tension.Forget Me Not is a well written psychological thriller which keeps you guessing right till the ve [...]

    27. Forget Me Not is an excellent psychological thriller. I read in her author's bio that she's a clinical psychologist and I think that her background really shows in how she crafts the mystery and the psychology of the characters that are involved.The book begins with Rose's daughter Vivian being found dead by a mysterious individual and then speeds ahead, to the present where Rose is trying to grapple with her daughter's death. On the surface and as an adult, Vivian seems to have the perfect life [...]
