New Synopsis Remember me

A young mother befriends a new neighbour—but soon finds her an unwelcome presence, in this psychological thriller with a powerful twist.

Sharni and her husband have just moved into 24 The Pines, and they appear to be ideal new neighbours to Clare and Chris. Sharni seems especially fond of Clare. She admires her and is always there to help, especially with childcare for Clare’s two-year-old son.

But Clare is starting to wonder whether Sharni just wants to be a good neighbour—or wants something more. Like Clare’s husband. Or her child. Or her life. And her anxiety starts to build every time Sharni comes near.

Is she just being overprotective, or are her worries justified? As Sharni’s influence touches everyone around her, Clare finds herself fighting for both her sanity and her family . . .

New Review Remember me

Clare, Chris, and their two-year-old son Ben, lived a quiet life. That was until Sharni and Tom moved in next door. The couple are a bit ‘full on’, and go out of their way to get to know their neighbours, with Clare being the main target of attention from Sharni.

Clare keeps on getting a niggling feeling about Sharni, but then starts to doubt herself, blaming the amount of prescription medication she takes, clouding her thoughts, medication that she can’t get through the day without.

Over the coming weeks Sharni imposes herself more and more on Clare, Chris, and Ben, even offering her baby-sitting services when Clare is given more hours at work.

Clare’s niggly feelings come to the forefront when Sharni tries it on with her husband Chris, leading to Clare trying to distance herself from her. But has Sharni really managed to infiltrate Clare’s life, or is it Clare that is the one who is unhinged?

I’ve read nearly every book by Lynda Renham. I love the laugh-out-loud, feel good factor that they give you, so when I heard Lynda had written a psychological thriller, I was a little apprehensive of whether someone who writes chick-lit for a living, could turn her hand to such an ‘on the edge of your seat’ genre. The easy answer is; Yes!

Remember Me will have you caught up in the lives of Clare and Sharni. At the start you get the sense that Sharni is the unhinged one of the two. Well this is a woman who basically wants to be Clare. Styling her home like Clare’s, dressing like her, and taking an unhealthy interest in her son. But as the story progresses, and you get to know Clare more, you start to doubt yourself, especially when you get to read Sharni’s point of view about Clare.

Alongside the plot there are pages with a woman visiting a psychiatrist, talking about her past, and feelings. You are kept guessing as to which woman is having the therapy.

Remember Me is filled with twists, turns and plenty of ‘red herrings’. It will have you in suspense until the very end, keeping you on the edge of your seat. Be warned, this book may just have you wary of getting to know your neighbours! Fantastic job Ms. Renham, just fantastic!
