Book Review – The Other You by J. S. Monroe @JSThrillers @HoZ_Books @VickyJoss1 #BookReview #BlogTour #suspense

Many thanks to publisher Head of Zeus for my spot on this Blog Tour.

Author J. S. Monroe has done it again, combined science and technology using other part of the brain as the focus.

Kate was a super recognizer, she could never forget a face and identify a partial one or just a smudge of a face. She was the human face detector. Post her accident, she lost this capacity and life resumed as normal as she could manage with a new man Rob in a house which was managed electronically. Until one day, she felt the man with her was not Rob. Was it really a doppelganger?

My second book by this author, I was gripped into the pathways of his brain as the story unfolded. What really did go on in his mind to belt our such a captivating book? I was as confused as the main character about the man being an imposter. The story flipped on itself so many times, where the subplots rushed by me like the latest Tesla cars.

The story went into technical details and in depth parts of the police work, which kind of made the suspense go down for me. But the rest of the book was a banger of a thriller. The twists made me dizzy, and the final reveal was so macabre that I had to go back to my textbooks to see if it were possible.

Whew… Another one of my great midnight reads.

To the author,

If only my professors in medical school had made the chapters of Central Nervous System, the brain, so intriguing, I would have been a neurologist today… 😂 😂

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

All my reviews can be read here

Kate used to be good at recognising people. So good, she worked for the police, identifying criminals in crowds of thousands. But six months ago, a devastating car accident led to a brain injury. Now the woman who never forgot a face can barely recognise herself in the mirror.

At least she has Rob. Young, rich, handsome and successful, Rob runs a tech company on the idyllic Cornish coast. Kate met him just after her accident, and he nursed her back to health. When she’s with him, in his luxury modernist house, the nightmares of the accident fade, and she feels safe and loved.

Until, one day, she looks at Rob anew. And knows, with absolute certainty, that the man before her has been replaced by an impostor.

Is Rob who he says he is? Or is it all in Kate’s damaged mind?

Publication Date: January 2020
