Welcome to my blog tour of When I was You
Would I recommend it? Yes
Would I read more by this author? Yes
First off I want to thank HARLEQUIN – Trade Publishing (U.S. & Canada) as well as NetGalley for inviting me to read and review it as well as helping me find a new author to keep a watch out for because with out them I might not have discovered her at all. And I'm so glad I did because man did this book play with my mind and had me question stuff I thought I know about the main character Kelly and I totally agree when they say its Fatal Attraction meet up, if you ever seen that movie then you probably know what I mean. Because there was times I thought Kelly was just out of her mind and that she was making things up. And there was times I thought why wasn't her friends and her husband happy that she had a friend but then that thought or whisper would come back what if her friend isn't real. As for the story itself the author wrote a tightly woven plot, twists I never saw coming, and characters so sharply drawn,that I also though man what if this was a movie and they had the right people playing the parts now that is a movie I would watch . And after reading this I can't wait to see what else she comes up with.

YOU meets FATAL ATTRACTION in this up-all-night psychological thriller about a lonely empty-nester's
growing obsession with a young mother who shares her name.
It all begins on an ordinary fall morning, when Kelly Medina gets a call from her son's pediatrician to
confirm her upcoming "well-baby" appointment. It's a cruel mistake; her son left for college a year ago,
and Kelly has never felt so alone. The receptionist quickly apologizes: there's another mother in town
named Kelly Medina, and she must have gotten their numbers switched.
But Kelly can't stop thinking about the woman who shares her name. Lives in her same town. Has a son
she can still hold, and her whole life ahead of her. She can't help looking for her: at the grocery store, at
the gym, on social media. When Kelly just happens to bump into the single mother outside that
pediatrician's office, it's simple curiosity getting the better of her.
Their unlikely friendship brings Kelly a renewed sense of purpose, taking care of this young woman and
her adorable baby boy. But that friendship quickly turns to obsession,
and when one Kelly disappears,well, the other one may know why.
