Remember Me, by Lynda Renham

Sharni and Clare are new neighbours. Sharni offers to help out Clare who is struggling to juggle work and a toddler. But Clare begins to fear that Sharni is copying her and has sinister motives…
Remember Me is a psychological thriller set in London.
Clare is concerned about her new neighbour’s behaviour. Sharni copies her decor, hairstyle and even clothing. But it is her confident manner with toddler Ben and secret meetings with her husband Chris that scare her most of all.
The first part of the book shows Clare’s first person viewpoint as she becomes increasingly uneasy about her new neighbour. The second part of the book gives us Sharni’s version of events. It is really clever to see both sides of each scene and understand their actions.
The motives are hinted at but not fully revealed until the end. A sinister atmosphere is created and maintained as we catch clues about the secrets both women are keeping. I admit that I did guess the big twists but this did not spoil my enjoyment as I was eager to see how the plot unfolded. Both main characters were easy to identify with, even if their behaviour and actions were unacceptable.
Remember Me was a gripping book with two vividly depicted, vulnerable yet flawed characters.
I have previously reviewed The Lies She Told, The Day Henry Died and She Saw What He Did by Lynda Renham.
Remember Me book cover
Book blurb
A new neighbour becomes a new friend. She looks up to you. She admires you, but is it you she wants? You begin to wonder if she wants your husband, or even your child. But then you realise, she wants your life.
When Sharni and Tom move into 24 The Pines, it seems like Clare and Chris have the perfect neighbours. Sharni is always there to help, especially with childcare for Clare’s two-year-old, Ben. But Clare can’t shake off the feelings of anxiety that assail her whenever Sharni is near. Is Clare just being overprotective, or are her feelings justified? As Sharni‘s influence touches everyone around her, Clare finds herself fighting for her sanity as well her family.
