Description

Twenty-five years ago Katie ran away from home and never came back. But now she's suddenly reappeared in her best friend Olivia's life - in the form of a chilling confession. Olivia's father-in-law, wracked with guilt, says he murdered her all those years ago. Tom suffers from Alzheimer's and his story is riddled with error and confusion. Except for one terrifying certainty: he knows where the body is buried.

As Olivia and the police piece together the evidence, they are left with one critical question. They have a crime, they have a confession, and now they have a body - but can any of it be trusted?

Original plot

I wouldn't ordinarily give such a high rating to a book that annoyed me so much, but this one does have redeeming qualities. Lots of twists and kept moving along really well - every time I thought the story was detouring into some unnecessary verbiage, something actually did come out of it. And the reader did a great job of portraying the drama queen protagonist, whom I particularly disliked. I probably could have rated it higher, even, if I hadn't resented the author's portrayal of the two female protagonists as so stupid and/or irrational. I mean really, the two little girls seemed more emotionally mature than the mothers. Being female myself, I'd rather the females were portrayed in a more positive manner. But at least the real killer wasn't exposed until the end, and I didn't guess it earlier, and I do like that about a mystery.

Overkill

This is a story about a wife/daughter-in law from hell. Twenty-five years after her 'best friend' disappears she discovers that her father-in-law in a nursing home, has confessed to her that not only did he kill the young friend years ago; he buried her body in their garage in his hiome. Naturally shocked by this news, she insists on informing the police. As an investigation begins, more and more secrets are revealed that that include various members of the family. The end result is that everyone's lives are shattered and love and trusts are affected beyond repair. I so disliked the attitude of the main character who never hesitated to sacrafice the lives of her entire family as long as she could maintain her holier-than-thou status. What was accomplished? Nothing accept a trail of shattered lives.

A Very Good Mystery!

This is a real mystery--kept from listeners until the final 20 minutes of the book! Hurray! That makes this one a winner despite a few little shortcomings. The main character gets her knickers in a twist over and over as she makes assumptions that are gradually proven false. Not the brightest bulb in the box as female characters go, but that's a small complaint. This is a complex plot with wonderful twists and turns and truly excellent narration. Well worth the time and credit.

Great Twist, Insufferable Lead

Would you try another book from Sibel Hodge and/or Anna Parker-Naples?

Yes, I would try another book from Sibel Hodge, see if she can create a less annoying, self-righteous main character

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes it was a compelling mystery.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anna Parker-Naples?

I don't know enough audio performers to know.

Do you think Where the Memories Lie needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No, not at all. The main character is so insufferable and holier than thou, I wouldn't want to know any more about her or to hear her story further.

Wow! What a great read/listen!

This book was one I will definitely recommend, well developed characters, a story that wraps you up in it, and so many twists and turns...just when you think you gave it figured out...BAM...another surprise! I didn't see the end coming at all, love this type of book!!!

Great story, told too slowly

I really loved the plot of this book, it's what hooked me in the first place, but I really felt like there was too much time wasted on insignificant details. That's not to say that I struggled to get through it, but I wish I didn't have to spend as much time on the book to get to a conclusion that could've been reached much sooner. Overall, it wasn't a bad read.

I'm surprised that I was surprised by the ending!

I almost stopped listening to this book as soon as I started because in the opening bit with the conversation between Anna and her mom was SO annoying. I got used to her voice, but anytime she spoke as either young girl, it was rough. Very obnoxious voice.
The story line was good though. Not amazing, but I was entertained and didn't see the ending coming, even though I thought I knew what had happened.

The performance and story were mediocre at best

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The narrator was horrible. Needs better performance. Story line and ending were a disappointment.

Has Where the Memories Lie turned you off from other books in this genre?

Yes

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anna Parker-Naples?

anybody else

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

no
