Phoebe Matthews' My Deja Vu Lover grabbed me right from the start and kept me turning the pages until I reached the end of this intriguing tale of love, friendship and psychological suspense.
April's nightmare begins when she enters into a fugue state in which she sees a nasty car accident. The crash appears to be fatal for herself and her best friends, and worst of all, she causes it. But April doesn't drive -- she's always been afraid to learn. And there's one person involved in the accident whom she doesn't recognize. Until she meets him...and falls for him hard.
When she continues to have visions of living decades in the past, during Hollywood's silent film period, April begins to wonder if she and her friends are reliving a tragic set of circumstances. Or is she simply going nuts? What if what happened before happens again?
Smart, witty dialogue combines with memorable characters to create a delightful blend of romance, suspense, and self-discovery. I also loved the historical detail about the early days of Hollywood. Highly recommended!

“The first time I saw the accident was on Tuesday afternoon.”
So begins MY DEJA VU LOVER, a fascinating blend of paranormal, psychological suspense, and romance. This story drew me in slowly as hints of darkness provided an enticing foil for the innocent spirit of the heroine, April, and her three closest friends.
Were April’s visions of a woman named Silver and a mysterious man named Lawrence buried memories, or the kind of seductive delusion that led to madness? When April’s present-day life began to echo her waking dreams of Silver and Lawrence, my suspense grew to page-turning compulsion.
In MY DEJA VU LOVER, Phoebe Matthews has created a fascinating multifaceted story in which a hint of Maeve Binchy’s gentleness pulses with a touch of the psychologically dark obsession of a Barbara Vine novel.
All that, and a great ending! I’m thrilled to have discovered Phoebe Matthews, and I’ll definitely be reading more of this talented author.

Right along with April who doesn't know why her world is turning upside down. She has visions of Hollywood in the time before talkies and is overwhelmed by memories of a passionate love affair. And then she meets her lover's double in present day Seattle and all the problems repeat, moving her toward disaster. This is a great romance and a warm love story, with suspense right up to the last page.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
