You Will Remember Me by Hannah Mary McKinnon

Jack wakes up on a deserted beach in Maryland and has no idea of who he is, where he is, or how he got there.

Meanwhile, Lily, his girlfriend, wonders why Jack never stopped by or hasn’t called.

Jack runs along the beach trying to find something familiar, and the only thing he sees that is familiar is a Maine license plate on a trailer.  He climbs in and is taken to Maine without the owner’s knowledge.

When he arrives in Maine, memories surface, and he remembers a phone number.  He dials the number, and his stepsister, Maya, recognizes his voice and finds him at a convenience store.

Jack has no idea who Maya is but trusts that she is his stepsister and goes home with her.

Maya had a crush on Jack when they were growing up and was devastated when he left home.  She didn't want to lose Jack again and was so happy to find him.

Maya figures out Jack has amnesia, but doesn’t really want him to regain his memory.  She hides the fact from Jack that he is a missing person.

The tension in this book is subtle, but you definitely feel it and know it is there.

What is Maya’s story and what are her secrets?

Why did Jack leave in the first place?

Will Jack's memory come full circle?

What will he really remember?

If you are a fan of thrillers, biting your fingernails, solving mysteries, and page-turning suspense, YOU WILL REMEMBER ME should not be missed.

What a terrific read and ending.  5/5

This book was given to me as an advanced digital review copy by the publisher via NetGalley.
