A stunning new psychological drama with twists that will shock you!
By Amanda Reynolds
A page-turning psychological drama that is full of twists, and perfect for fans of My Husband's Wife and I Let You Go.
'Gripping, claustrophobic and often deeply unsettling, Close To Me exerts a magnetic pull from its first pages' Kate Riordan, author of The Girl In The Photograph.
She can't remember the last year. Her husband wants to keep it that way.
Dramatic psychological suspense for fans of Liane Moriarty's The Husband's Secret, Clare Mackintosh's I Let You Go, and Linda Green's While My Eyes Were Closed.
When Jo Harding falls down the stairs at home, she wakes up in hospital with partial amnesia - she's lost a whole year of memories.
A lot can happen in a year. Was Jo having an affair? Lying to her family? Starting a new life?
She can't remember what she did - or what happened the night she fell.
But she's beginning to realise she might not be as good a wife and mother as she thought.
Amanda Reynolds teaches Creative Writing in Cheltenham, where she lives with her family. Close To Me is her debut novel.

From the first page I was invested in Jo's story and desperate to know what had happened to her. Amanda Reynolds is in no rush to reveal the details of Jo's past, but instead masterfully peels away the layers to keep the reader turning the pages. The first-person, present tense narrative keeps us right at the heart of the story and its lyrical prose all adds to the wonderful experience of reading this accomplished debut. — Kathryn Hughes, author of Number 1 bestseller The Letter
