In The Dark We Forget: A Novel by Sandra SG Wong

(Thank you to the publisher and TLC Book Tours for providing me with a copy of this book!)


about book: (summary from Goodreads)

A jolting psychological suspense novel from an up-and-coming Chinese-Canadian crime writer about missing parents, a winning lottery ticket and the lies we tell ourselves in order to survive.

Some things are better left forgotten . . .

When a woman wakes up with amnesia beside a mountain highway, confused and alone, she fights to regain her identity, only to learn that her parents have disappeared—not long after her mother bought a winning $47 million lottery ticket.

As her memories painfully resurface and the police uncover details of her parents’ mysterious disappearance, Cleo Li finds herself under increasing suspicion. Even with the unwavering support of her brother, she can’t quite reconcile her fears with reality or keep the harrowing nightmares at bay.

As Cleo delves deeper for the truth, she cannot escape the nagging sense that maybe the person she should be afraid of...is herself.

With jolting revelations and taut ambiguity, In the Dark We Forget vividly examines the complexities of family—and the lies we tell ourselves in order to survive.

my thoughts:

Suspense and thrills at its very best! I LOVED In The Dark We Forget by Sandra SG Wong! What an exciting and entertaining read!

Cleo wakes up on the side of the road not remembering who she is or how she got there. She soon find outs that her parents are missing. Apparently they won the lottery and have since vanished. Say what?! Yep, a mystery to be sure. Cleo's memories start to tumble in and soon she is doubting her self and the people around her.
