Who She Used To Be

Who She Used To Be

A domestic suspense novel set between Whidbey Island, Washington, and London, England, Who She Used To Be asks how well we ever really know those we love, and reminds us that the worst betrayals, the darkest secrets, are the ones by those closest to us.

If you can’t remember it

Artist Eva wakes up in the hospital after being struck by lightning right down the street from where her estranged mother was murdered. But Eva can’t remember what happened.

As her memories slowly begin to resurface, Eva has flashes of a violent struggle. But the memories of the night her mom was killed are becoming tangled with the night she was attacked four years ago, and Eva doesn’t know who she can trust — least of all herself. And then she sees an email from her mom sent the night she was killed. Eva is not her mom’s biological daughter.

How do you prove you didn’t do it?

Heartbroken, in shock, and under investigation by the police, Eva leaves her peaceful haven of Whidbey Island for the bustling streets of London, desperate to untangle the threads of her mother’s life. Along the way she discovers hidden lies, brutal revenge and secret betrayals that threaten not only her freedom and her identity, but her very life.

Plagued by memories she can’t quite get a grasp on, Eva wonders who she is and what she’s truly capable of. She must dig deep inside herself and find the person she used to be — independent, brave, strong — and learn to trust herself again. As dark secrets are revealed, Eva must cope with the memories being dredged up.

Like What She Never Told Me, Kate McQuaile, In Her Wake, Amanda Jennings or The Missing One, Lucy Atkins, this novel focuses on the themes of family, identity, loss, grief and the secrets that families keep.
