    One thought on “She's Not There”

    1. My first by this author (actually a pair of authors) but it definitely will not be my last. This was a totally gripping story about an amnesia victim who goes on the run based only on her feeling that she is frightened of her husband. As her memory slowly returns in small pieces she uses her wits to avoid being found by the PI who has been sent to find her. The story becomes very tense whenever she and the PI come close and then there is a dramatic finale between all the main characters. All ver [...]

    2. “She’s not there” begins in a hospital in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Amelia Tobias has regained consciousness after being in a traffic accident. Her memory is sketchy at best, but her feisty spirit remains intact. It seems she is a wealthy lawyer’s wife. But why does she remember being a ballet dancer? The car she was in when the accident occurred was an $800,000. Mercedes Gullwing. Why then does she flee in fear when she hears her husband in the corridor of the hospital…Amelia is on th [...]

    3. This is a really cracking enjoyable read that completely grabbed my attention. When Amelia Tobias wakes up in hospital after a car accident she has total amnesia and struggles to remember even her own name. The only thing she does remember is that she is very afraid of her husband, Alex.When Amelia disappears from the hospital husband Alex wants her found and hires private detective Clay Buchanan to track her down. And so begins a cat and mouse tail that really had me on the edge of my seat at t [...]

    4. Wow! What an exciting roller coaster ride of emotions!She wakes up in the hospital with no memory of who she is and what has happened to her. She does feel fear she has a blurred image of a dark-haired man standing over her. She is told that her memory will probably come back a little at a time.

    5. Amelia wakes up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there. She doesn’t even know her name. She eventually remembers her name, and the hospital staff are able to look her up and contact her husband. Amelia doesn’t remember being married, but at first sight of her husband she’s unexplainably scared, and flees from the hospital.She’s Not There follows Amelia as she tries to remember her past, including what put her in the hospital and why she’s so scared of her husband. As pieces [...]

    6. She's Not There by P.J Parrish is a thriller that unfortunately follows the current story line that many thrillers do right now. Woman has accident. Woman loses memory. But instinctively knows that the people closest to her are out to kill her. And though she has little to no memory of who she is, she has enough of her wits about her to out smart hired professionals sent to find her. For such a thriller to work as it unravels its clues in selective memory or dialogue, it has to sustain a strong [...]

    7. I’ve read all the Louis Kincaid novels and loved them for their riveting and usually flawed characters, evocative settings—you feel the heat of Florida and the arctic air of Michigan, smell the salt marsh and the snow covered firs—and always, always the feeling of something ominous, something more than the usual death and destruction, just around the corner or, more appropriately, the next page. The writing team that is P. J. Parrish has left the long-suffering Kincaid and moved to the eas [...]

    8. For some reason, amnesia is a favourite trope of mine. I just love to read about people who suffered memory loss and the process in recovering them. I also have a preference that it be in a romance novel type of setting so I’m not quite sure exactly why I chose to read this book… I think I’m not made for psychological thriller. It’s just too exciting for my poor heart!The novel began with a dream just prior to Amelia’s awakening. At first, she can’t remember a thing about herself tho [...]

    9. Lacks credibilityThis is my first read for the 2018 Scale Your TBR Mountain Challenge, and after finishing it, I'm not really sure why I added it to my TBR in the first place? It has an okay storyline, but nothing that seems to jump off the page at me. So here again is another novel I listened to that was narrated by Emily Sutton-Smith, and I believe here in lies the problem. Her narration puts the "bor" in boring. Once again, I have to give her credit on her ability to pull off multiple differe [...]

    10. THIS WAS SUCH A WILD RIDE. It was fast-paced, thrilling, intriguing, and so ridiculously compelling that I could not put it down. I read this entire novel in less than three hours, and it's the perfect type of story to read if you just feel like reading something that'll really suck you into the story. The plot of this novel is so intricate and so complex, and there's so much mystery shrouding everything that makes it so eerie and so uncertain. So many times I'd think I know what direction the p [...]

    11. Full blog review in progress:3.5/5NOTE: I have read all the books written by this dynamic sister duo. My big joke on my love of PJ Parrish's writing goes back to 2000 with the publishing of Dark of the Moon. I will never forget a debate with my husband regarding male vs. female mystery writers (that was actually prompted by who PJ Parrish was because there is no picture of the sisters in early releases), my husband stated that he didn't like to read female mystery writers due to their focus on r [...]

    12. After reading lots of great reviews on books by this sister team I thought it would be a great read for a rainy Sunday. The sisters, Kristy Montee and Kelly Nichols have written a series of mystery/thrillers that won some major awards and I wanted to see what this standalone novel would be like.As the blurb for the book states Amelia Tobias wakes up in a hospital room severely injured with no memory of what has happened to her and doesn’t know her own identity. A dark haired man visits one day [...]

    13. P.J. Parrish (sisters Kelly Nichols and Kris Montee) has an exciting new standalone mystery/thriller in She’s Not There. What made it especially interesting was that it was told by three different people throughout the story. The main protagonist Amelia, who wakes up with no memory in the hospital after a serious head injury and what appear to be wounds incurred during a car accident. Alex, who is Amelia’s husband and has a lot to hide, but claims to still love her. Finally there is Clay Buc [...]

    14. She's Not There is a great thriller of a book-what a ride! I usually do not read too many thrillers but when I read the blurb for this I just knew I had to give it a try and I am so glad I did!The main character of the book is Amelia. One day she wakes up in the hospital and she at first does not know who she is, but after having some flashes of what is going on, she realizes she is in danger- not who she is in danger from, but when she hears a man's voice in the corridor of the hospital, she kn [...]

    15. This book has the makings of a good crime drama. That is what I kept thinking the whole way through. I could easily picture the cast in my head and how the story plays out and unfolds. I loved how I got instantly attached to the story and the characters. I liked how the suspense was gradual, with just enough to keep me very engaged. Good character development. I found myself wanting to go back to it, despite having a newborn to tend to, which led me to reading at 4-5 in the morning, well after b [...]

    16. I LOVED this book!Hooked from the first chapter, SHE'S NOT THERE by P.J. Parrish is such a roller coaster of emotions and events that it's near impossible to put down. RELEASE DATE: September 2015PUBLISHER: Thomas & MercerDISCLAIMER: Novel sent via NetGallery in exchange for a honest reviewSYNOPSIS: They say it’s better to battle the devil you know. But what if you don’t recognize him before it’s too late? She knows her name is Amelia, but after waking up in a hospital battered and bru [...]

    17. This book started out so strong and interesting. I was hooked right away and it was super suspenseful. But, as it went on I felt like it got boring and tedious. I think the author could have completed this quicker and developed the characters better. It was an interesting mystery, but definitely not my favorite.

    18. "She's Not There" by P.J. Parrish will be published by Thomas & Mercer on September 8, 2015. P.J. Parrish is actually an amalgam of two sisters who write together. Kristy Montee and Kelly Nichols have written many books together and are New York Times bestselling authors. Their most famous series is the Louis Kincaid mysteries of which there are eleven books (plus one short story). After reading "She's Not There", I surmise that a new series could come of this book.Amelia awakens in the hosp [...]

    19. I found this one to be a very average suspense novel. It was a quick, easy read and kept my attention to the end, but I just wasn't invested in any of it. The characters were bland, the situations were unconvincing, and I couldn't suspend my disbelief long enough to get into the story. So much of the "investigation" seemed to occur by great leaps of intuition rather than having the characters actually figure things out. And I don't know how amnesia works, or what's truly realistic for a private [...]

    20. This is a book that I can say I left feeling like everything fell into place perfectly. Between the unknown, the twists and turns and the ending, the book was almost pure perfection!I was drawn right into the story from the first page with Amelia in the hospital not remembering anything. From that moment, my brain was on overload. I was trying to figure out who was the bad guy, who was the good guy, was the good guy really the bad guy and was the bad guy really the good guy? Would she ever remem [...]

    21. Review originally posted at All Books Considered: 3 STARSShe's Not There was an intriguing mystery/crime thriller although the end of the book left me a bit disappointed. The first half of the book was seriously good and I read it so fast but as the mystery was revealed, my interest waned. I am finding this a lot lately with thrillers and I wonder if it's me or if there are just many books being released in this genre after the popularity of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train that these books a [...]

    22. I absolutely loved this book. It's such a roller coaster of emotions and events that it's near impossible to put down. It's an intriguing mystery although the end of the left me a bit disappointed. The first half of the book was really good and I read it so fast but I wish the strength of the first half of this book had carried on. Amelia wakes up in a hospital with amnesia having suffered a traumatic car crash, she just remembers a dark haired man who might have tried to kill her. She trusts no [...]

    23. Starts out great but doesn't deliverThe book had a promising beginning. A woman wearing a black designer gown and a $200,000 diamond ring, and having injuries consistent with an auto accident, is dropped off at the hospital by some guy in an old pickup. She has amnesia and the only thing she knows is that her name is Amelia and someone wants her dead. The hospital learns her identity and notifies her husband, but before he can get there, Amelia manages to escape and goes on the run.Who are the b [...]

    24. It's almost impossible NOT to like P.J. Parrish novels, which explains why so often she (actually, two sisters who combine their writing skills) have repeatedly hit bestseller lists.In SHE'S NOT THERE, the theme is built around a woman who suffered through an experience she can't remember and indeed is fraught with amnesia. That amnesia creates the story and character tension as she slowly comes to recall more and more — and yet, not quite enough to put all the pieces together beyond understan [...]

    25. The main character, Amelia, awakens in a hospital following a car accident that has left her with no memory of who she is or what happened. The only thing she knows is that, upon hearing the voice of the man claiming to be her husband, she is terrified of him and instinctively flees the hospital.Discovering his wife has disappeared, Alex hires a skip tracer named Buchanan to find her. Little by little, vague memories return to Amelia, but it's not always clear how reliable they are. And every ti [...]

    26. Book Review originally published here: iheartreading/reviews/ Amelia doesn’t remember anything, after she wakes up in the hospital. She barely remembers her name. But she does recall being afraid of her husband. She goes on the run while Alex hires a PI to look for her. The good: Amelia’s amnesia added an additional angle to this book, and made the story more original. Amelia’s memory slowly returning and pieces of her past being exposed was the most intense part of this book for me. I had [...]

    27. What a great read! A woman wakes up in a hospital, scared--very scared. All she can remember is a dark-haired man. She's told she was probably in an auto accident, that the amnesia is normal and her memory will come back bit by bit, though she might never remember the accident. And I can't tell you any more without spoiling it for you. Suffice it to say that this is a gripping tale by two of the best. (P.J if you don't know, is two sisters.) I haven't read a P.J. Parrish for quite some time and [...]

    28. This was a fast-paced read with an atypical storyline for the genre, I think. The plot was a tangled web with one twist after another, but it all came together nicely in the end.One of the main characters, Amelia, had developed amnesia after an accident. Throughout the book, her memory slowly comes back during her run from her husband (Alex), the man who she knew deep down was a danger to her despite a lack of memory.
