Don't Look Back
Blurb (from Goodreads):
What if you had the chance to start again...but only if you promised never to look back? Samantha is popular, rich, and seemed to have it all...until the night she and her best 'frenemy' Cassie disappeared and only Sammy resurfaced, with no recollection of who she is or what happened. Sammy's a stranger in her own life - a life she no longer wants any part of. Losing her memory is a chance to start again. Then Sammy begins receiving mysterious notes warning her about that night, urging her to not look back. But she can't let it go. As she starts poking around in her past she begins to remember...and something sinister begins to surface.

My rating: 3.25 of 5 stars


Don't Look Back(Source: I was able to view a digital galley of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Hodder & Stoughton and Netgalley.)
17-year-old Samantha wakes up covered in blood and not knowing who she is. When she is eventually reunited with her family she finds that she has been missing for 4 days, and that her best friend Cassie is still missing.
What happened to Sam? And what happened to Cassie?


This was an okay mystery story, but the answers were a long time coming.

Sam was an okay character, and it wasn’t nice for her the way she lost her memory. I don’t think I’d have liked the person she was before the amnesia though.

The storyline in this was okay, but it did start to drag after a while. The mystery of what had really happened took a long time to surface, and it wasn’t always an entertaining journey finding out what happened.
There was some romance, but it was a little odd. I didn’t really like either of the boys that Sam was with, and she seemed to go from like to love very quickly.
The ending to this was okay, and I didn’t guess who the killer was. I had lost interest a bit by the end though as I just wanted to know who the killer was, and was fed up with not knowing.
Overall; okay murder/mystery story, but it dragged a bit.
6.5 out of 10.
