That would have made sense why her vendetta was what it would have been. And she and Eamon could have been working together. The whole ending was just way too confusing and ICKKKKKKK.

What the fuck?

Sorry, but this book just doesn't... work. To be fair, my reaction to Feeney's Sometimes I Lie was pretty much "what the fuck?" as well, but in a really good way. She has once again managed to pull out an out-of-this-world twist, but here it is so ludicrous that I felt like laughing instead of gasping in shock.

I was bit turned off with this one right away, if I'm honest. I don't know about everyone else, but I'm getting tired of this meta style of narration where the unreliable fem

Aimee Sinclair is an actress on the verge of stardom, but she hasn’t always been Aimee, she was once a little girl with another name. Aimee’s life is about to take off on a whirlwind of twists and turns, but just kick back and experience this roller coaster ride of a journey with her!

Aimee’s husband Ben has gone missing, his keys and cellphone are on the dining table but it’s unlikely that he’d leave them behind. They’d had a huge fight the night before in which they both said some pretty awful

Sometimes a book immediately resonates, and you know you’re in for a great ride! This was one of those books!

Aimee is an up-and-coming movie starlet! Everything is falling into place for least professionally. Her home life however, could use a little Hollywood magic. Her husband has grown distant as her star-power has risen, leaving him in the shadows.

After a long day of shooting on the set, Aimee returns home to find her husband missing. His wallet, phone and shoes still in the home.

I already wasted my time reading this, so that's pretty much all you're going to get aside from mentioning the shock and awe twist at the end? Stupid. And gross. Easily the worst thing I've read so far this year.

4.0 Stars— So how do you rate a book that held me entranced throughout, that exemplified a brilliant writing style and caused me to take multiple breaks at work so I could find out what would happen next? But, when all of this greatness is coupled with one of the most ridiculous, unbelievable finales that left me completely flabbergasted that such a great novel by such a talented writer could end that badly, it leaves you uncertain as to whether you should recommend this book to others.

Feeney's style is so unique and she knows the best way to impress us, her new book I KNOW WHO YOU ARE is a perfection full of unexpected dark twists and great drama!
You can tell when a psychological thriller is great when you have no clue what's going on or who's doing what! Alice is the best when it comes to thrillers and we have enjoyed her book so much! She has merged different topics in very mixed and difficult emotions to swallow, her way of elaborating the acts is so great written it make

I read Alice Feeney’s other book “Sometimes I Lie” which was a 5 star rating from me, so I had high hopes for this book!!

Aimee Sinclair is an actress married to Ben, when she returns home from her daily jog she discovers that Ben has disappeared leaving his wallet, shoes, phone and coat behind.

Aimee is used to acting the part and seems to be hiding a big secret!! The police suspect her of harming Ben as they have video evidence of them arguing in a restaurant and her slapping him in the face. S

This book is an excellent read. I like the distinction between the voice of an adult Aimee and the voice of a five year old Aimee. I like following adult Aimee’s thought process because there are many good advices especially because she’s an insecure person. The kid Aimee reminds me of a children’s series called Amelia Bedelia where she doesn’t know the idioms of such things as hold your horses as in wait a moment instead of actually holding a horse. I like the surprise point of view when the pa ...more

More air bubbles than a glass of least the champagne has quite the kick and you know you'll be getting a decent buzz. Hardly that in this one.

I Know Who You Are is a double layer of the missing. Aimee Sinclair, an up and coming actress of questionable talent, comes home to find her husband Ben missing. It's as if aliens have beamed him up (now that may have been a more interesting storyline) with his car, wallet, and phone all left behind. Aimee calls the police and the lead det

Oi Goodreads, me and you are going to fall out!
I keep noticing that my reviews and ratings keep disappearing and considering I spend so much time wring them, I’m finding it a tad annoying!!
Thankfully I can recall really liking this riveting thriller...

When actress Aimee arrives home to find her husband Ben has disappeared, she puts it down to a recent argument - that’s until she discovers that her bank account has been emptied.

Lying is what I do for a living. It's what I'm best at; becoming somebody else. The yes are the only part of me I still recognize in the mirror, starting out beneath the made-up person. Another character, another story, another lie.

HOLY. MOLY. WHAT. DID. I. JUST. READ. This was a WILD ride. I read Alice Feeney's Sometimes I lie last year and it was one of my top 5 reads of the year. It definitely set the bar high for this one but I can deny that this was so good.

What in the actual fuck?

Why did you do this to me, Feeney?!

Sometimes I Lie was one of my more favourite reads last year, so I was pretty pumped up to read the second offering from this author, but unfortunately, I’m W-T-F-ing all over the place with this one.

I mean, seriously. Why? Why that ending?

I should have fucking known I was going to be disappointed by this.

Every weekend no matter what I’m reading I take a book from my own personal pile (as opposed to my review books) and this is the one I chose.

I can only say I may be sitting on the fence here coming down neither one side or the other.

The concept of the book wasn’t original. Reading so many books each year as reviewers do we are bound to come up against similarly written books.
But this really is mash between a mystery, contemporary book and thriller plus “whodunnit”.

This book received so many mixed reviews, I wasn’t sure about reading it. But, wow...that cover (the black one)!! Alice Feeney’s debut received such great praise, expectations were high. Fortunately I haven’t read it yet, so no expectations here!

I’m happy to say I was hooked from the start. The story was good, but the way it was told was the most enjoyable part. Feeney’s writing is superb and her ability to construct such creative twists is amazing! Some described the ending as unbelievable or f

This was one of the books I was most excited to read this year, and sadly I ended up really disappointed with it! I buddy read this one with Jayme, and we were exchanging guesses about what was happening, and ended up guessing the ending of this one pretty early on. That alone wouldn’t have been a huge deal, but I *hated* the ending. I don’t want to give away any spoilers, so this will probably be annoyingly vague, but the ending was so implausible to me that it made it hard for me to rate this ...more

Unpopular opinion alert!!

“Sometimes I Lie” was a 5 star read for me, so I could not wait to get my hands on this book. It was originally titled “Sometimes I Kill” and with the way that the last book ended, I thought we might be in for a sequel..but, that is not the case.

Aimee Sinclair is an actress, on the verge of becoming a star, but she is not really comfortable being in the limelight.

I loved my previous read by this author (Sometimes I Lie) and before I start reading this one I was wondering why this has such a low rating. When I was reading it I still was wondering why! Because I liked the writing, it was well-written with well-developed characters. I liked the plot, I have scenarios in my mind. It contains short chapters with unreliable characters.

I know Who You Are by Alice Feeney is my first by this author and I'm definitely interested in reading other books of hers.
I know Who You Are is the book you read that after every chapter your left with that sick feeling in the pit of your stomach and the need to quickly turn to the next page.
It's a perfect tense filled psychological thriller Ideal for that easy summer read.🌞
I also needed a little more as i felt a few things were left unanswered but it's still a book I would recommend 📖

I Know Who You Are by Alice Feeney is a book that stays with you after you read it. Dark, twisted and unpredictable until the very last chapter.

In the very beginning, we are met with the unknown. Aimee Sinclair is an actress and when she comes home, she realizes her husband is missing. The police suspect she is hiding something. They are right, she does have a secret…

The book switches between two timelines; the first being Aimee today and the seco
Not everybody wants to be somebody. Some people just want to be somebody else.

This was, most assuredly, not the ideal Christmas read.

If I'm being completely honest, and I'm always honest in my reviews, I have no idea what I think about this novel--brilliant or hot mess?

So, here's the thing...Alice Feeney is the ultimate in unreliable narrators. The problem is, after 300+ pages, I'm more-than-over these memory-faulty characters. This time around, unlike with Sometimes I Lie, I had v
Thanks to Flat Iron Books for the ARC!
This was one hell of a ride. I was enjoying the hell out of this book and had so many predictions and every single chapter ended on a cliffhanger and I thought it was excellent.. until that final plot twist.

This book follows an actress named Aimee Sinclair who’s husband has recently gone missing, and their shared bank account has been emptied. In alternating chapters we get flashbacks of Aimee’s horrific childhood (view spoiler)

ALICE FEENEY HOW DO YOU COME UP WITH THIS STUFF!!!!!! I seriously applaud the creativity of a writer who manages to write a completely different book stylistically on their sophomore effort and still wow me. I was absolutely hooked on this book from the beginning and had no clue where it was headed - and honestly, that’s my favorite kind of twisty - when I just don’t know where it could go and the outcome is even more OH EM GEE than I could guess...

Aimee is an up and coming actress. She has always been an introvert but when she is acting she can be someone else. She is very good at acting in front of and away from the camera. One night she arrives home after a long day on the set to find her husband missing. He has gone out without his car, wallet and phone. They’d had an argument the night before. Surely she couldn’t have killed him! Could she?

This is a tale of two stories. One is about Aimee Sinclair - a well known actress who is on the verge of becoming famous. One day towards the end of her shoot on her latest film, Aimee comes home from filming to find her husbands mobile phone and wallet on the dining room table. He never goes anywhere without them. When she goes to her favourite coffee shop the next morning, her card gets declined. The bank tells her that her account has been emptied. She suspects her husband but the bank says t ...more

You may remember me raving about Feeney’s debut novel, Sometimes I Lie all year last year so I was so anxious to see if her second novel would pack the same punch as the first and the answer to that is a resounding hell yeah!! I was just as blown away by this one and can say I’ll be reading anything the author writes in the future.

This is told via two timelines, one with Aimee in 2017 London and the other back in the 80’s follows a little girl and that’s all I’m going to say about that. Both tim
