    **ARC provided in exchange for an honest review**"Now, there was only Eve. Broken, broken Eve. The girl with no name."I usually don't read a lot of books outside the romance/paranormal genre, however every now and then I do. What made me pick up The Unremembered Girl was the intriguing and mysterious vibe I got from the blurb. I love books focusing on small town families, and the not knowing which direction the author will take with the character...

    I'm pretty sure the author believes this is a tragic, yet hopeful love/coming of age story. Unfortunately it's actually the story of a selfish ass justifying all his bad decisions (view spoiler)[AND HE EVEN GETS A HAPPY ENDING, WTF. The complete lack of sympathy for Eve and all the trauma she'd suffered throughout her entire life was incredibly upsetting. How can you not only expect a woman pregnant from rape to be happy about having a baby, but ...

    Upon reading the word ‘girl’ in the title (coupled with its uninspiring cover) I almost skipped over this one. I’m so glad I paid the book summary closer attention as it delivered an addictive read which I read in one sitting this afternoon.Lots of subtle things keep the momentum ticking along nicely as threads are cast out to connect the mundane goings-on in community where an unidentified and dishevelled young woman appears out of the blu...

    Actual rating: 4/10Yeah, no. Definitely not my favorite book. The plot jerked along for the whole novel and the characters were two dimensional. While it does smooth over a bit during the second half of the book, I was thoroughly Over It by then and only reading because I Ain't A Quitter. A few notes:1.) When I say the plot jerked along, I meant it. The transitions between scenes were messy and confusing. Sometimes I had to re-read whole passages...

    No. Just no.Maybe it's my own fault for not recognizing the "[x person] is ~BROKEN~! The valiant hero must ~fix~ them!" vibes from the summary, because I despise these stories. And this was one such story. This wasn't a love story or a hopeful story or a tragic story, it was aggravating and uninteresting, at least to me. I came very close to DNFing it, but I persevered, and sadly I can't say that my efforts were rewarded at all.I received a free ...

    It took me a while to read this because I am reading another book and trying to get ready for Christmas. But, this is a must read. Oh my, Henry has to be one of the strongest characters and I hated Eve all the way through. I never felt their relationship was nothing more than codependency. I do recommend this book if you like mysteries.
  • Amy Yingling
    Wow, what a twist! That is all I will say. If you enjoy psychological thrillers/suspense you'll want to pick this one up!
  • Lesli
    Not for me. Unbelievable characters. The relationship between Eve and Henry is very confusing to me. The infatuation is unbelievable.

    You can also read my review at This book was my Kindle First choice for October. The life of a rather dysfunctional family living in the backwaters of Texas is turned upside down by the appearance of Eve, a young woman who has suffered terrible indignities and abuse from a very young age. Having escaped from traffickers, Eve has been secretly watching the family and studying their relationships, and it tri...

    It's not very often that a book has me hooked from the first chapter. The connection between Eve and Henry is beautiful but also so bizarre. The storyline is an amazing and well balanced mixture of romance, suspense, & horror. If this book was ever made into a movie, I would be one of the first to buy a ticket.
