Where the Memories Lie - Sibel Hodge

Reading Challenge Category: Book from Amazon Kindle Unlimited

Official Blurb:

Twenty-five years ago Katie ran away from home and never came back. But now she’s suddenly reappeared in her best friend Olivia’s life—in the form of a chilling confession. Olivia’s father-in-law, wracked with guilt, says he murdered her all those years ago. Tom suffers from Alzheimer’s and his story is riddled with error and confusion. Except for one terrifying certainty: he knows where the body is buried.
As Olivia and the police piece together the evidence, they are left with one critical question. They have a crime, they have a confession, and now they have a body—but can any of it be trusted?

My Thoughts:

I’m afraid this wasn’t the best of Sibel Hodge’s books.
It was very average, and for the majority of the time, not a lot happened. When things do happen, it is all a bit overkill at once, it was like she wanted to throw every problem she had at this family, and it made it all that more unrealistic.
I felt like the book was really all about the big reveal at the end. You knew that was why it was quite bland throughout, as it would have this big blowout at the end. However, when the big reveal did come, it was a bit of a letdown as it was so predictable. It wasn’t shocking in the slightest.
I have come to expect magic from Sibel Hodge, her books always enlighten me into the hidden mysteries of the world, but this one did nothing for me, I’m afraid. It was just an average psych thriller and not one of the best I’ve read.
