    One thought on “What She Didn't Know”

    1. 4 STARS "Come out, come out, wherever you are.” Tammy Falkner delivers an entertaining story that was very well paced with some clever twists and turns. Our hero, Mason’s beloved wife Lynn has disappeared/hiding and he’s determined to find out why. I thought I had the whole story figured out yet there was one twist I didn’t guess. Our heroine is a multifaceted woman to the extreme and our hero loves all the parts of her. "I didn’t mean to fall in love with all of them,”

    2. An addictive page turner. Tammy Falkner expertly weaves a wonderfully stirring story about the healing power of love. My reviews usually follow the same pattern: initial thoughts, pseudo summary of the book which describes a bit of the plot and characters, the characters themselves, notable likes and book essentials. This one will be different. Not only because this story is a departure from Tammy’s previous books, but also because I really can’t say much about it without spoiling you. And w [...]

    3. Wow! What a wild and crazy read! This book tumbled me about until I wasn’t sure where I was going to land. And I loved every minute of it.Mason’s wife Lynn is missing. He’s beside himself trying to find her. When he connects with one of her friends, he has hopes she will be able to help him locate her. What follows is a path unlike any I’ve read before. It is much better if you go into this blind. Don’t read reviews, just step in and do it. If you like your romance with some twisty tur [...]

    4. ***I received this advanced readers copy in exchange for an honest review***I remember the first book I read where the character had DID, Tell Me Your DreamsI enjoyed it so much and it left such an impact that whenever I come across a book/movie featuring a character with DID, I always read/watch it.This book was predictable. After the first few pages I had an idea what was going on. Lynn, the wife of the MC Mason, has disappeared. He tries reaching out to her "friends" and they tell him she is [...]

    5. Stories with the topic of mental illness in this genre as written by the author is small. Although I quickly found out what was going on, it was nice to see how Mason accepts and loves his wife's friends.For my taste too much sex and too general description of the disease and cheezy ending.But nevertheless, a solid book.

    6. It took me 23 pages to conclude the entire story. It got a touch of mystery but, the romance theme surpass everything. I have to say the romance part left a bad taste in my mouth. It felt so wrong. When I saw the title, my first thought was, Mason did something evil. But what he did was downright icky. I don't even know why it was marketed as romance. The writing was smooth. That was the best part about reading this book. The multiple pov not so much. But, if you figure it out early on, then it [...]

    7. I don't have much to say about this one, other than it has and interesting topic (that I don't read often) and it's well written until the end.The end ruined it for me. You don't know what's happening until the author subtly let's you in the mystery, followed by some amanzingly well written descriptions, feelings, situations. And then it all goes to hell. I can't believe it, honestly, that it has such a terrible and oh-so-cheesy ending, where everyone lives happily ever after and love wins. What [...]

    8. 4 Stars!!I couldn't put this down. Such an intriguing look inside the mind of mental illness. Mason's love for Lynn was so heartwarming, but at times his actions made me wonder. The blurb was a little deceiving, so I kept waiting for the shoe to drop. Unfortunately, when the twist was revealed, I was hoping for something more. I still loved the relationships Mason formed and thought he was truly selfless in giving his love. It was difficult to see Lynn's background play out, but it was very subt [...]

    9. WowI am in awe of the twists and turns in this book, with the overriding ability to make me love and care about Mason. Not knowing where the story was going or what was real, I still loved him and wanted it to all work out.

    10. this book is crazily goodi knew what is happening after a few page but im confuse in shelly's this book is worth the read,but be ready for some cray!

    11. I honestly can’t tell if I liked this book or not. But I do have a book hangover. ***Spoilers ahead and read at your own risk***This was a clever book and it reminded me of A.Torre’s Black lies. The big difference was that it was the girl who had the disorder and not the guy. It all began when Lynn who was married for 19 years to Mason, (a psychiatrist) had disappeared. She had gone alone before but never this long. He was worried. But one day, Ash came for a visit, and he knew his wife Lynn [...]

    12. This is something very new and different from Tammy Falkner and I really enjoyed it. The book was entertaining, fast paced with some very clever twists and turns. I won’t say much about the story as it’s best to go in without spoilers. I will say that I was able to figure out the major twist very early on in the book as I had read something previously that had a very similar twist. However knowing this, didn’t detract from the overall enjoyment of the story.Mason’s wife, Lynn has disappe [...]

    13. This book was so confusing, I know it was meant to be like that. But the first part of the way through I was like I just do not know what is going on. Then I put the book down started thinking about it like what if she has this disorder, which I was completely right about. But it just confused me so much up until I figured it out. That is why I gave it 3 stars. I love Tammy Falkner. Her books are amazing. And this book was so great too. I was just so confused during most of this story. But I am [...]

    14. I loved this book couldn't put it down. Mason met Lynn on his sixteenth birthday and couldn't stop thinking about her so he would go to the hospital were she worked, but she also was a patient. Mason and Lynn married years later even when his parents didn't want him to because of her condition. Lynn has four friends Ash,Jamie,Charlie and Shelly that always help her and take care of her when she feels she couldn't handle things. Mason developed feelings for each of her friends to were he loved th [...]

    15. Format: ebookTissue warning: possibleHEA: yes.Triggers: mental disorder, child abuse (non-graphic in flashbacks)Narrative: First person, following Mason till the end where we get a Lynn and Shelley POV.My reviewer rating: 4 out of 5.Recommend read: Yes. Published: November 1, 2017Thank you, Netgalley and the author for my free e-copy of What She Didn't Know in exchange for my honest-to-goodness review.I will admit that I had this story figured out super quick, within the first 5 Kindle pages, bu [...]

    16. This is a voluntary review of an advanced copy.I usually stick to strictly romance books so I was not expecting this different kind of romance book, and at the beginning, I didn't like or understand Mason! I started to suspect the situation Mason was experiencing but then later there was a twist that I did not see coming!I don't want to give away any spoilers as this book really needs to be read straight through for the best effect. I normally give in to temptation and read the ending of a book [...]

    17. Tammy Falkner has written an emotionally charged stand alone story in What She Didn't Know. It proves that love conquers all. It is unlike any story I have ever read and has a unique storyline in and of itself. It took a moment for me to wrap my head around this book, but once I did I could not put it down. It proves to me the lengths one will go to love all facets of the one they are with. Tammy Falkner had the ability to capture her reader heart and never let go. I cannot wait to see what she [...]

    18. Another new to me author and another entertaining read. While this trope has been done before I really enjoyed it, especially the selflessness of our hero. While I saw the plot coming a mile away I loved this authors spin on it and she really gave a great insight the struggles of mental illness."They all thought that Lynn’s crazy would break me. But I was pretty sure that mine would break me first."

    19. HELL!Wow!I loved this! It catches the reality of a specific mental illness, as we!l as the challenges of loving a broken soul. And it does it with splendidly completed characters - all of the essential people so well drawn and dancing through life, challenging anyone to dare to question their right to exist.The book wraps up in a surprising fashion, but neatly and completely.

    20. The blurb sounded really interesting when I read it so I 1-clicked right away and started. The plot was ok but a little confusing at times. The issue I had was I couldn’t connect with the Hero at all. He rubbed me the wrong way and his actions contradicted how he claimed to feel. I figured out the big reveal early on so it wasn’t too shocking. It was still a book that held my attention and I’m hoping the next book will be about a certain character (fingers crossed). 3.5 Stars!

    21. I have to admit that I almost didn't read this book but I'm so glad i did. From a few reviews I read I guessed what was happening but I still enjoyed the story. I have read all of Tammy's books and this one was totally different. I couldn't stop reading it. Loved it!An ARC received from NetGalley for an honest review!

    22. 2.5 StarsDID (Dissociative Identity Disorder) kinda book. It's A LOT to take in because there were so many personalities and having to separate characters who were real vs an identity. One thing I can say is THERE IS NEVER A DULL MOMENT but I don't think I can read another book containing DID again. My brain hurt.

    23. I was extremely intrigued by the blurb and where this story would take me. Straight away its pretty obvious what is happening and you think you have figured out the story line and then it took i turn i really wasn't expecting. I stayed up way later then i should of just to finish this book and i loved every minute of it. I can't wait to check out more from this author.

    24. Tammy Falkner has a talent for commanding your attention from the first page and holding you captive until the very last page.What she didn’t know is a story of a husband who is trying to find his missing wife. While looking for her all of her friends come to visit him. I did figure out the story line quite quickly it it did not stop me from devouring this book.Loved it! .

    25. WOW!! What a story! It was heartbreaking and beautiful at the same. Unique storytelling at it's best. I started it late last night and stayed up till after midnight this morning to finish it. It was that good and a real page turner. One of the best stories I've read this year!

    26. 3.5 StarsThis was a very different read from the other books from Tammy Falkner I've read. The story is complex and dark and at times, a little hard to follow. I can't say much without spoiling the plot, but I did figure it out fairly soon.

    27. The plot is a lighter take on mental illness and abuse. There are a few heavy scenes but overall they're mostly suspense than drama. This is something new from this author. I liked it. I suggest to read this book without going through any reviews with spoilers.

    28. This book was so different and so wonderful. I could not write a review that deserved it. The twist and turn and the emotional cyclone made me wanna keep reading it again and again. You would hate Mason and then you would love him just like Lynn did. I loved everything about it.5 stars

    29. Wow! No spoilers here, but this book grabs you and will not let go! I had to finish and stayed up WAY too late--but no regrets! Incredibly interesting characters and a lovely story that reaffirms the importance of acceptance and love, no matter the circumstances.
