Genre: Mystery/Thriller

Catherine is only a few weeks away from marrying the love of her life Dominic when an anonymous package is sent to her workplace. It contains her dead sister’s snow globe, with an unexpected and grisly addition inside. Determined not to let this horrible event derail her wedding plans, Catherine conceals the snow globe, and tried to find out who might want to pull such an awful prank on her.

For years Catherine has tried to forget her dead sister’s cruelty, but as more and more sinister pranks and messages appear, she can no longer hide from the past. What really happened to Rachel on that Swiss skiing holiday? Is she really dead? If she is, who is tormenting Catherine and her family now? And why?

I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley.

Forget Her Name is told from Catherine’s viewpoint as she first receives her sister’s snow globe, throughout her wedding and the events that follow. I felt her fear and confusion, and desperately wanted to know who it was behind the sinister events that kept happening. The distrust she felt for her parents, and the growing insecurity she felt regarding Dominic, other family members, and friends, only drew me into her world further. My own theories as to who was/wasn’t involved kept changing with every twist and turn.

The plot is gripping and the mystery will keep you flipping the pages. The ending is unsettling, but suited the characters perfectly.

If you like mystery novels with a psychological edge then add Forget Her Name to your to-be-read-list now.
