Forget Me Not by Miranda Rijks

Along with Zooloo’s Book Tours, today I have Miranda Rijks’ new book, Forget Me Not. The cover definitely caught my attention!

Five years ago, Helen lost her husband. Now she may lose her life.

Five years ago, Helen’s husband Paul went missing while skiing in the Swiss Alps. His body was never found, but he is presumed dead because no-one could have survived a night on that freezing mountainside.

It took Helen a long time to get over her loss, but now she has pulled her life back together – she is an acclaimed interior designer in a loving relationship with a new man. Even better, Helen has just been offered her dream project, renovating a luxurious chalet in an idyllic location. There’s only one catch – it’s right next to the resort where Paul went missing.

She decides to take the job anyway, convincing herself that a visit to the scene of her great tragedy will actually be good for her, that it will give her a chance to lay old demons to rest. But soon after she arrives, she makes an utterly shocking discovery and finds herself caught up in a nightmarish web of treachery and deceit where nothing is as it seems.

Only one thing is certain – the mountains want to claim another body…


The title of this book has so many meanings for the story. Six years ago Helen’s husband Paul dies while skiing in the Swiss Alps. Helen and Paul’s relationship was a little rocky at the time but she was devastated. At the same time of Paul’s accident, Helen finds out she is pregnant. Fast forward to the present and Helen is in a loving relationship and has a beautiful daughter. She is loving her dream to be the interior designer at a chalet, in the Swiss Alps.

The story is told from multiple POV and dual timeline. This style of writing gives you a lot of insight into the characters and releases information just when it is needed to keep the story moving. I loved everything about the book. The setting is beautiful and the story is action packed. The multiple POV shows you two stories that connect. I related with Helen so much. Her grief, her protectiveness of her daughter, her new life. This is a very well written book that had me reading it whenever I could.
