Forget You Know Me by Jessica Strawser
I read this book and then had to just sit quietly for a minute to reflect on everything that happened in it. Liza and Molly have been best friends their whole lives and find themselves gradually drifting apart as adults. Liza moves to Chicago while Molly marries and has 2 kids. They try to keep the friendship going but over time they realize it's more about going through the motions than the actual relationship. Liza has reached a point where she is trying to figure out what she wants in life and what her next step is going to be. Molly has become a shell of her former self bogged down by guilt and chronic pain. One chance web chat that revealed an intruder in Molly's home changes everything for both women and their relationship. The story that unfolds is one of lies, pain, secrets, and leaves you wondering how well you can really know someone. I found this to be a fantastic read with the exception of Molly being slightly annoying in the way she handles things.
Thanks to NetGalley and St. Martin's for the ARC and the chance to leave my honest review here.
