I really enjoyed reading Best seller “Look Behind You” and “Trafficked: The Diary of a Sex Slave“. Then when I heard about British Author Sibel Hodge’s new mystery/thriller, “Where The Memories Lie” I knew I had to read it. Sibel Hodge is a very talented writer that writes from a mix of genres, including romance, mystery and thrillers and young adult.

“When the memories lie, sometimes it’s best to let the truth stay hidden.”

This is the story about a man who takes his secrets to his grave.

Nadia, Ethan and Chris had all lived in an old barn that Olivia’s father-in –law, Tom had renovated. Then when Tom got Alzheimer’s, Ethan, an architect married to Olivia, a part-time nurse and teenage daughter, Anna bought the house from him. When things became more difficult to handle, Tom was moved to a Nursing Home.

Olivia’s sister-in-law, Nadia, an accountant and office manager for the Tom’s business is married to Lucas, a pilot, and parents to a teenage daughter, Charlotte.

This story is told by Olivia…her thoughts…her discoveries…her decisions.

Twenty-five years ago Katie ran away from home, leaving a note and never came back. But now she’s suddenly reappeared in her best friend Olivia’s life. Olivia’s father-in-law, confesses that he murdered her all those years ago. Tom suffers from Alzheimers and his story is based on memory flashes and confusion. But he knows where the body is buried!

“It was an accident”

As Olivia and the police piece together the evidence, they are left with one critical question... Who would do such a thing? But more important, how could they believe someone suffering from Alzheimer’s to be telling the truth?

This was a fast-paced book that was a little slow at the beginning, but soon took off and held my interest till the end, with lots of twists and turns and revelations. I will definitely continue to read more by this author.

People can all make terrible mistakes, mistakes they must live with. And sacrifices are made to save the family.

“How far would you go to protect the ones you love.”

Many thanks to the author, publisher and Netgalley for the ARC. Much appreciated.

Susan May Sounds good Sue. Gah, I wish I was a speed reader. I'm stuck at the moment on this 850 page sci-fi book that is really slow going. You think the end of the world would be interesting, wouldn't you? lol. Thanks for the recommendation.

Thanks Susan. For someone who is not into sci-fi, this book would be really long for me! Thanks for your like.

I love sci-fi. In fact, the book after the next book I'm writing is going to be sic-fi, but this is too filled with detail of science that isn't interesting. If it's well written sci-fi is great and the characters interesting, but this one is about the science and that makes it dull.

I try to be more open with the genres I select from, and will have to give sci-fi another chance.

You know what, you could try The Martian. I loved that book and the film is out in October with Matt Damon. Very immersive story and quite thrilling. I felt as though I was on Mars with him.
