It all started with the bereavement flowers with my name on them.
Not the best way to wake up, right? I work in a flower shop. I know a funeral arrangement when I see one.
I know a killer when I see one, too. And one is standing in my hospital room right now, straight behind the man who saved my life.
I can't tell anyone the truth, because that's the fastest way to really die. So I do the next best thing. I "lose" my memory.
I fake my amnesia.
Pretending not to remember a brutal attempted murder has its perks. The killer is backing down, spending less time around me, loosening the noose.
The less I claim to recall, the more my rescuer, Duff, works to help me "remember." I hate lying to him.
But he doesn't understand that my memory is dangerous. To me. And to him.
Fooling everyone isn't easy. It's the hardest thing I've ever done.
Except it's starting to look like I've been fooling myself.
In more ways than one.
Read Book 1 in the newest series from USA Today bestselling author Meli Raine.
"...intrigue and dark humor on display in this thriller..."
While the immediate—and more compelling—tension in Raine's (A Shameless Little Bet, 2018, etc.) heart-pumping series opener comes from Lily's constant proximity to her would-be killer, the action takes place against a backdrop of secret government scandals.
Fortunately, Lily's voice is captivating, wry, and tough enough to sell this thriller. The novel ends with a cliffhanger that startles, if only because readers will have become so attached to Lily.

Loved! In this book, the first of the trilogy, Lily wakes from her coma after she had been shot months before. She decides to fake having amnesia to protect herself and her family from her shooter, who walks amongst them as if he’s an ally. The writing in this is great, you can really feel how horribly frustrating it would be for Lily, being stuck in a hospital bed for so long, unable to really do anything, and unable to protect herself in any way, except to pretend she knows nothing. As always in these trilogies, there’s twists and turns and it’s amazing! The endings always leave you wanting the read the next book immediately.
Great story with lots of unknowns. On to the next to find out what happens next.
