About The Book:
An accomplished photographer and the devoted mom of an adorable little boy, Allie Ross has just moved to an upscale DC suburb, the kind of place where parenting feels like a competitive sport. Allie’s desperate to make a good first impression. Then she’s framed for murder.
It all starts at a neighborhood party when a local dad corners Allie and calls her by an old, forgotten nickname from her dark past. The next day, he is found dead.
Soon, the police are knocking at her door, grilling her about a supposed Tinder relationship with the man, and pulling up texts between them. She learns quickly that she’s been hacked and someone is impersonating her online. Her reputation—socially and professionally—is at stake; even her husband starts to doubt her. As the killer closes in, Allie must reach back into a past she vowed to forget in order to learn the shocking truth of who is destroying her life.
I Don’t Forgive You is the best thriller I’ve read so far this year. The book is a fast paced, compulsive read that had me turning the pages until its satisfying conclusion. I read this book in one day, which I almost never do, skipping other activities to finish Allie’s story. The protagonist’s life falls apart one calculated hour at a time by a relentless unknown enemy, and I immediately empathized with her plight. I couldn’t wait until the mystery was solved so the poor woman could find some relief!
I don’t intend to retell the story since the publisher provides a detailed summary. I will say there are many viable suspects to choose from and each adds their own twist of the metaphorical knife into Allie’s back. The assault on her life is so intense that down and dirty revenge would be entirely justified. You’ll have to read the book to see what Allie does.
I loved this highly entertaining story! Congratulations to Aggie Blum Thompson, who has a big winner with this book!
