That’s Not My Name

Megan Lally

Mystery Thriller

She thought she had her life back. She was wrong. It was a mistake to trust him.

A gripping debut thriller perfect for fans of Natalie D. Richards and Vincent Ralph.

Shivering and bruised, a teen wakes up on the side of a dirt road with no memory of how she got there―or who she is. A passing officer takes her to the police station, and not long after, a frantic man arrives. He’s been searching for her for hours. He has her school ID, her birth certificate, and even family photos. He is her father. Her name is Mary. Or so he says.

When Lola slammed the car door and stormed off into the night, Drew thought they just needed some time to cool off. Except Lola disappeared, and the sheriff, his friends, and the whole town are convinced Drew murdered his girlfriend. Forget proving his innocence, he needs to find her before it’s too late. The longer Lola is missing, the fewer leads there are to follow…and the more danger they both are in.

My Opinion

5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5) I read this in one day. That is highly unusual for me! I couldn’t put it down. It was a fairly quick read and I inhaled it.

It’s exactly what I love in a thriller. I was sucked in with that first line, “I think I might be dead.” It’s intense from that first sentence and doesn’t stop.

And that ending? So many emotions, so well done. It’s rare I find a 5 star thriller because I can always guess the ending or twists (downfall of being a big reader). But I loved every second. 

General content summary: F words= 94, missing teen, teen has 2 dads, details of a corpse, physical violence (weapon, blood, choking, losing consciousness), captivity, panic attacks.
