Abby goes to her doctor and finds out she is pregnant. The last time she had sex was over a year ago so how can that be. The only thing she can think of is that she drank so much alcohol on New Years Eve and someone took advantage of her.
The only way Abby can find out what happened is to retrace her footsteps, speak to people who were at the same party and try and put all the pieces together.
This book had me fooled from the get go. I thought I knew what happened to Abby ...more
So this is one of those stories that actually sounds much better than it actually was.
There was nothing really wrong with this, it was well written and all but I felt that everything seemed to take forever and a day to accomplish here and events began to get a bit stale and then same all, same all.
The beginning and end of this were quite good it was the middle here that managed to lose me somewhat.
This still had a lot going for it and I was still invested in the characters and their eventual fat ...more
Thank you to the publisher Quercus Books and Netgalley for the free eARC copy of this book to read and review.
This cover completely drew me in and the caption on the cover – wow! This book was a gripping thriller from beginning to end. A young girl attends a NYE party, and a couple months later finds out she is pregnant but has no memory of how that could be possible? Not very much of a memory from the NYE party night i ...more
Deliver Me is a terrifically fun and engrossing read. The book grabbed me from the second I picked it up until I reached its surprising conclusion. The thriller genre is a bit overloaded these days – some are quite good, others are not good at all. Fortunately, Deliver Me is excellent addition to the group.
What makes this book stand out is an oh-so-cle ...more
Thanks to Netgalley for this copy.
Whilst I read a couple of books with a similar “amnesia” storyline last year, I have to say that this book really did blow those others out of the water! The premise here that forms the basis of the storyline really was one that shocked the hell out of me! What would you do if you went to the doctors because you were feeling ill and he diagnosed your pregnancy? Well that would be great news…unless you hadn’t had sex for more than a year!! And that’s what happens when Abby takes a positive pregna ...more
I went into this book not sure what to expect. I thought the premise could be really interesting, but I also thought it could potentially be really mishandled, however, I think the author did a pretty good job with some really tricky subject matter.
I found it extremely frustrating how all, except one, of the characters refused to believe that the main character had been raped. Even if the main c ...more
Deliver me is a highly disturbing read that will see you jumping at your and your cat’s shadows. Well that’s what it did to me. I don’t think I’ve become so jumpy at a book before.
This book had plenty of twists and turns, and plenty of stories about what actually happened on New Years Eve.
Towards the end of the book, when the final big twist came, I had to read it twice just to make sure I had read it right, I had, but it was so unexpected.

Abby attends a New Years Eve party, two months later she learns that she pregnant she can't recall anything that had happened at the party or having had any sexual encounters, so how has this happened? Deliver Me was full of twist and turns and had me quessing a few times, I was completely captivated during this book and absolutely loved every minute of it. Highly reco ...more
I received an eARC from NetGalley. Abby’a doctor tells her she is two months pregnant. But how can that be true? She hasn’t had sex in a year. However, multiple tests confirm she is indeed pregnant, and the only night she might have had sex which fits the timeline was a New Year’s Eve party where someone must have taken advantage of her intoxicated state. As Abby tries to discover who may have raped her, anonymous me ...more
Deliver Me gave me so many mixed feelings, although I did spend almost the entirety of a day glued to it because I just wanted to see the ending through.
Some people may call major spoilers on me for saying this next bit, so be warned. My progression of feelings went exactly like this:
1. I know who the rapist is. Why does this book keep going back and forth, and why does no one ever suspect him?
2. Abby is batshit nuts, how do you just run a ...more

She begins investigating what actually happened that night.
I really liked the premise of this book. I thought it was pretty unique. I felt like Abby’s behav ...more
I enjoyed this book, it was a pretty easy read. At the beginning, it was nice but I couldn’t get into it since I found her story too far fetch. Abby was a little frustrating with her naïveté. I thought it was interesting how the author tries to explain her actions by adding her internal thoughts. That was a nice touch. During the last 20% of the book some things start to unravel and it became more interesting. I d ...more
