We’re first introduced to the main character Tess on the eve of her engagement to her boyfriend Harry, who she had been living with for a while. They have some celebratory drinks and fall asleep. Unfortunately, Tess wakes up like 10 years later with no memory of what happened in between.
Her “husband” is next to her in bed and tries to comfort her. It turned out she was in a bad car accident and had a head injury. They start every day like this. It definitely has some 50 First Date vibes, but you can tell within the first few chapters that her husband is no Adam Sandler. He just has this underlying sinister vibe. He doesn’t do anything bad to her at first, but you can tell he’s a creeper.
He hands her a letter that she wrote to herself to try and explain her situation. She spends each day the same way and just tries to figure out what the hell is going on with every new event that unfolds. She has a sweet dog that she has no memory of, and each day she woke up I was scared her dog wouldn’t be there and she wouldn’t even know.
She eventually gets a text from her old boyfriend Harry, and things start to unravel. I really liked this book. She was a believable character who I liked and wanted good things for. And the ending wasn’t like “poof, everything is perfect and the bad guys are dead”.
