Publisher's Summary

Press, tap, refresh....
When Autumn Carpenter stumbles upon the social media account of the family who adopted her infant daughter years ago, she finds herself instantly drawn into their picture-perfect existence.
From behind a computer screen, Autumn watches Grace's every memory, from birthdays to holidays to bedtime snuggles. But what starts as an innocent fascination soon spirals into an addictive obsession that comes to a screeching halt the day the McMullen family closes their Instaface account without so much as a warning.
Frantic and desperate to reconnect with her daughter, Autumn applies for a nanny position with the McMullens, manipulating herself into Grace's life under false pretenses. And it's only then that Autumn discovers pictures lie, the perfect family doesn't exist, and beautiful people? They have the ugliest secrets.

If you're looking for a fresh, relevant, unpredictable psychological thriller, you'll like this book because the summary doesn't do justice for the depth of the characters and plot development. The author doesn't use cheap surprises and curve balls for shock value, rather she allows details to unravel on their own to speak for itself. I was wrong almost every time I assumed something and was left impressed with the author's ability to not include unconnected elements. I read a few negative reviews and I think they're due to not just accepting certain realities and not understanding how traumatized people can be left from the past - without this, I can see how one may think some content and detail the author provides to the story line are far-fetched. This book definitely held my interest throughout and I highly recommend it.

I love it! Didn't see the end coming!

If you could sum up The Memory Watcher in three words, what would they be?

Blew my mind!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Peeking inside the minds of the two main characters made them both seem very real. It brings into perspective that you don't ever really know someone just from the outside appearance or even their actions. The story developed smoothly and kept me wanting to listen. I thought the first main twist was amazing, then there was another and the final twist at the end - wow! I had to smile and say to the author - you got me! I never would have guessed. Great book!! Buy it - you won't be disappointed!
