In this gripping domestic thriller, a group of privleged suburban moms amuse themselves by Googling everyone in town, digging up dirt to fuel throny gossip. Caroline Thompson, devoted mother of two, is relieved to hear her name appears only three times, citing her philanthropy. However, a delayed pang of insecurity prods Caroline to Google her maiden name-- which none of the others know. The hits cascade like a tsunami. Caroline's terrified by what she reads. An obituary for her sister, JD? That's absurd. With every click, the revelations grow more alarming. They can't be right. She'd know. Caroline is hurled into a state of paranoia -- upending her blissful family life -- desperate to prove these allegations false before someone discovers they're true.

The Memory Box is a fascinating, well crafted psychological thriller that’s full of twists and turns. Her college Alumni, her doctor, the newspaper, all have info about her past but she is clueless.

It kept me wondering what really happened in her past life? Is she a victim or an instigator? Why was she so keen to uncover her past, and what was that destructive pull that led her to keep looking into her past at all costs? Find out by reading this gripping, ‘unputdownable’ novel.

This book was definitely not my favorite book I've ever read. It was a very slow read, and the main character wasn't the most likeable. I only finished the book because I wanted to see how it would end, and the ending wasn't worth it. I wouldn't recommend this book

Ever Googled yourself? Who hasn't? But what if what you found didn't jive with what you know to be true?

This is the premise of this debut suspense-thriller, and it is a thriller that just doesn't quit.
