“An addictive read; a strong recommendation for those who like suspense tinged with a little romance.”—Booklist A woman without a memory struggles to.
Table of contents

Inside it was a photograph of a toddler called Dylan. If there was the smallest chance your son was alive, what would you do to get him back? I could give a trigger warning for those who have been through a similar experience, as it very well might be too much for someone too close to that current situation, but as a survivor of this type of mental illness I felt wholly capable of reading this book without it being too disturbing to my psyche.

Proceed at your own caution, but know that this book was well worth the time and emotional effort required of me to read it, in my humble opinion. After that, each chapter mostly alternates between present day, which is directly after Susan is released from prison and has changed her name officially to Emma, and these flashbacks to a group of boys committing atrocities that are seemingly unrelated to the present day.

There are multiple mysteries that tie together into a single storyline, which is just the type of read I love most. The intrigue between each thread that appeared to be separate coming together was what really won me over, and I was gripped from beginning to end. This was a bit of a slow burn in the beginning that picked up over time, and until the end was more of a psychological suspense than a full blown thriller with action sequences.

I felt the ending was perfect; while there was much needed closure on the big mystery, it also left a bit to the imagination which is always appreciated here.

Miley Cyrus & John Travolta:I Thought I Lost You Lyrics

I've just read a book with a very similar premise so I don't want to read all of this one, I just want to know what this author did with a very similar story. How on earth could he adjust to an upheaval at his age and move back to his mothers care? And noone seems …more About a baby who was alive the whole time.

And noone seems too bothered about the baby who took his place at the mortuary??

I Thought I Lost You (feat. John Travolta)

No, I didn't kill either of my children, but I've visited some deep, dark places that I would never wish upon anyone. I could give a trigger warning for those who have been through a similar experience, as it very well might be too much for someone too close to that current situation, but as a survivor of this type of mental illness I felt wholly capable of reading this book without it being too disturbing to my psyche.

Proceed at your own caution, but know that this book was well worth the time and emotional effort required of me to read it, in my humble opinion. The prologue is Susan's letter to her parole board in a plea for consideration of release and also as a confession of remorse toward the horrible act she committed. After that, each chapter mostly alternates between present day, which is directly after Susan is released from prison and has changed her name officially to Emma, and these flashbacks to a group of boys committing atrocities that are seemingly unrelated to the present day.

There are multiple mysteries that tie together into a single storyline, which is just the type of read I love most. The intrigue between each thread that appeared to be separate coming together was what really won me over, and I was gripped from beginning to end. This was a bit of a slow burn in the beginning that picked up over time, and until the end was more of a psychological suspense than a full blown thriller with action sequences. It won't be for everyone, and those who are particular savvy with psychological thrillers may figure out the ending, but I can honestly say I didn't have it all solved and only picked up on parts here and there.

I felt the ending was perfect; while there was much needed closure on the big mystery, it also left a bit to the imagination which is always appreciated here. View all 10 comments. I thought the basic premise of this book was really interesting, it definitely caught my attention as something I wanted to read This was a Traveling Sister read and of the 7 that started it only 3 of us finished The characters were really hard to connect with ALL of them However, I was interested enough to finish this book I really wanted to know how the author was going to pull this all together and she did even if it was extremely convoluted There were some definite tense page turning moments towards the end of this book, and I really appreciated the fact that Brenda and Marie Alyce stuck it out with me, so I had somebody to vent to when I was done!

In a market saturated with some pretty darn good psychological thrillers, I unfortunately cannot recommend this book, however I have heard her first book was a lot better! View all 57 comments. I have to start off by saying how much of a fan I am of Jenny Blackhurst! She has slowly climbed up my top favorite ladder of authors. So, as you can say I was extremely excited to be given the opportunity to read "How I lost you". Here we are introduced to Susan Webster who has just been released from Oakdale Psychiatric Institution for murdering her 3 month old baby boy.

Susan has the chance to start a new lif I have to start off by saying how much of a fan I am of Jenny Blackhurst! Susan has the chance to start a new life living under her new name as "Emma Cartwright. Susan aka Emma is starting to re-build her life when strange things start to happen to her. Emma receives a mysterious envelope that is addressed to her former name Susan Webster. How does anyone know her new address and where she is?!

The envelope holds a key to Susan's past She was charged with suffocating her son with a pillow? How can this be?! Susan is determined to find the answers about her son and what truly happened that horrible day she was charged of murdering her son.

See a Problem?

Now, if that doesn't grab you.. I don't know what will! I was having a hard time connecting to the characters and understanding exactly what was going on in the beginning. Finally, around 50 percent the plot starts to bubble up and grabs your attention. She is supposed to be living under a new identity. So, that was a little odd to me. At times, in the book I literally wanted to hit her over the head and was screaming at her to SEE the red flags!!

The ending and surprise to the story was lacking for me big time. I found the story to be a little over the top with it being some what ridiculous. The previous novel I read by Blackhurst had so many twists and turns and I was shocked by the ending. I was disappointed that I didn't enjoy this one more. I still am a huge fan of Blackhurst and look forward to seeing more from her :. Overall 3 stars on this one. Thank you to Netgalley, Atria, and Jenny Blackhurst for the advanced arc.

This one tested our ability to suspend disbelief throughout the whole story and pushing us over the edge with the ending. It was fun and entertaining and there was some great tension that kept us going to to see how this one played out. It brought out a great discussion and we really enjoyed readi Short and quick review for this Sister Read with Marialyce and Berit.

How I Lost You by Jenny Blackhurst is s psychological thriller that is mostly told from the point of view of Susan, a grieving mother that had been accused of suffocating her baby that is now out of the hospital. Some parts also flash back to other characters to tell another side of the story of just what led up to that day that Susan lost her baby boy and who was behind it. The story of a child's life at stake is certainly one that I found quite compelling. I found myself quickly turning the pages to find out if I should be rooting for Susan or perhaps hating her if she had killed her child.

As the story unfolded I'm still not quite sure if I'm a huge fan of the ending overall but I didn't take off too much of the rating as I was definitely interested in getting to the end. I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley. View all 4 comments. Jan 08, sue added it Shelves: netgalley-challenge. I tried. I really tried. The plot was a bit OTT for me.
