In Jessica Strawser’s new novel, FORGET YOU KNOW ME (StMartinsPress), a video call between friends captures a shocking incident no one was supposed to see. The secrets exposed threaten to change their lives forever.
Molly and Liza have always been enviably close. Even after Molly married Daniel, the couple considered Liza an honorary family member. But after Liza moved away, things grew more strained than anyone wanted to admit―in the friendship and the marriage.
When Daniel goes away on business, Molly and Liza plan to reconnect with a nice long video chat after the kids are in bed. But then Molly leaves the room to check on a crying child.
What Liza sees next will change everything.
FORGET YOU KNOW ME is about love and how we go about receiving it, as well as protecting it. Strawser’s novel explores how we deal with the distances between one another, how time affects our recollection and other obstacles. It’s a suspenseful mystery that will have you thinking long and hard after you’ve finished it.
