Sibel Hodge can really weave a believable story I know we reviewers say a lot of Cliches but this really is a cannot put down book It really gets under your skin and keeps your attention The trouble was, each time I thought another chapter then bed I got to the end and was saying this until dawn broke and I was so tired the next day How can you get up and leave a film that your e watching part way through Well, it was the same for this.When someone suffers from Alzheimer s, how do you know what [...]
3.5 starsI didn t feel this played out as a gripping psychological thriller as its marketed to be, but as a compelling mystery whodunit revolving around a tight knit family that has the rug pulled out from underneath them in the least suspecting way.Tom, aging father of 3, has Alzheimer s and is in a nursing home During a visit with his daughter in law Olivia, he blurts out I killed her I had to do it to protect my family With these words the story unfolds, taking you on a journey into the past [...]
3.5 Tom was an honorable man, a man who always put his family first, a man who would do anything for his family, a man who now suffers from Alzheimer disease and lives in a nursing home He is now saying that he murdered a young woman, many years ago, but how seriously should he be taken A solid story about a decades old tragedy, many secrets and a family in crisis When Jenny left all those years ago it was presumed, aided by the note she left, that she had run away But how far did she get The di [...]

I really enjoyed Look Behind You and so was really looking forward to getting stuck into Where the Memories Lie, the author s latest psychological drama The description hooked me Tom, an old man suffering from Alzheimers Disease confesses to his daughter in law Olivia that he murdered her best friend Katie who suddenly disappeared 25 years ago, with everyone believing she had run away from home Anyone who has ever known someone suffering from the condition will know that in amongst all the usual [...]
Sibel Hodge s Where The memories Lie is an enthralling look at the impact of personal disaster upon relationships What does it take to break the trust between a married couple, the trust in a family unit, and once broken, can that trust be repaired I used to think that everything was black and white Crimes should be punished People shouldn t tell lies Not big ones anyway Not important I ve just killed someone lies But then I d never been in this situation before Tom is the patriarch of a close k [...]
REVIEW WHERE MEMORIES LIE by Sibel HodgeAn engrossing, can t put it down, mystery, WHERE MEMORIES LIE deals as much with human emotions as it does with its actual, very tangled mystery It also paints a compelling portrait of an Alzheimer s sufferer, and the pain for both patient and loved ones It s a terrible thing to see memory shrivel and fade, as the adult children, in laws, and two grandchildren of Tom Tate experience A man who acquitted himself wonderfully as a long time single father, an e [...]
I give this book 3.5 rating,really disappointed with this book as it was lacking loved her book look behind youill going to read of this authors books.
This book is an ideal test of your skills as a literary detective Usually when I suss out the perpetrator in a mystery story, I dock the book a star for being so simpleminded or derivative that even I can figure it out At the other end of the spectrum are authors who also lose a star because they bury the clues so deeply that you ll never spot them, least I ll never Not the mention authors who out out cheat by withholding essential information from the reader Unlike them, Sibel Hodge plays absol [...]
Wow There s a few hours of my life I won t get back I wanted this to be thrilling But it was amateurishly written And Spoiler Alert the ending was ridiculous and not beliveable And I don t mean in the, wow didn t see that coming how exciting way It s like it was unfinished Are we supposed to believe the police suddenly stopped looking I can t understand the great reviews To each his own of course, but there s alot better fiction out there to read Just a bad, bad novel.

I absolutely adored Sibels last book Look behind You which was her first psychological thriller so i was rather excited to get a copy of her new one from Netgalley but also rather nervous Would Where the Memories Lie live up to my expectations I am please to say that it did Olivia lives an idyllic lifestyle with her husband Ethan and daughter Anna Ethan comes from close family but his father Tom is now in home as he has been diagnosed with Alzheimer s disease When Olivia visits him one day, Tom [...]
A memory to forgetI read the few reviews that were available and most all thought this was a great book I could only get to Chapter 5 before I was done with it I then read the epilogue and the author asks the reader a moral question I started off liking the characters and the plot but it became clear we could lose multiple chapters and not miss anything It started off at a good pace and then became cumbersome I didn t need a whole chapter about a beach picnic I wanted to get back to the plot The [...]
this took me too long to get through because I had trouble keeping my interest and I felt the ending was too easy.
Holy Moly This book is absolutely one of the best psychological thrillers I ve read in a long time As soon as I read the blurb, I knew this was going to be a cracker of a thriller just not this good Every action has a reaction Every deed has a consequence There s always a price to pay Family secrets can be destructive They wedge a boulder between those who know them and those who don t When exposed, as happens in this book, they test a family s bond to the limit, shattering lives and relationshi [...]

Very poor characters had no substance and main character was dreadful The plot was ridiculous and so much of the dialogue felt contrived Really glad to finish this one and move on to something better

I didn t want to finish this book It worried me that I might not like what I found out Does dementia free memories so secrets are exposed If these memories are real, would the kids and the rest of the family be able to handle the dark secrets Would I conceal the truth to protect the family in a similar situation I was twisted up in knots I woke with the story invading my dreams and just had to know who did it I love it when the writer gives me this creepy feeling Then I wonder who I know that ho [...]

Not quite a 4 star rating 3 1 2 Olivia s best friend Katie runs away over 20 years ago and no one ever hears from her again Father in law Tom is in a nursing home suffering from Alzheimer s and confesses to a terrible deed From that point on there is no stopping Olivia as she is like a missile intent on finding out what happened to Katie I liked the story, the way it was written, how you were led to think different things at various times, but it was a bit too long with lots of unnecessary domes [...]

Review copy provided by Thomas Mercer for an honest review.Full review to come asap.
So, a family secret, you say Blurted out by a frail Alzheimer s patient Would you really take everything at face value from someone who only last week was under the impression that he s Gregory Peck The story had potential, but imagine you stumble upon this secret in the man s diary The one he d written when he was still at full mental capacity Now that, I could get into.This book is not really a suspenseful thriller, a story about a tight knit family and the lengths they would go to protect th [...]
This was a fairly good mystery suspense novel I enjoyed it for the most part Some good thoughts But the foul language rather spoiled it for me.
