    I went into this story with medium level expectations it seems much of women s fiction is being touted as a dark thriller these days, and when those stories fail to deliver on the promise of a stomach churning plot, readers are disappointed Not so here Dunlop has weaved together a wholly emotional tale that packs a wallop of a punch right where it counts There are certainly dark themes dispersed in the narrative, but the weight of this book rests on its ability to deliver the reader a connect I [...]

    We Came Here to Forget, publishing July 2019, is the third novel from author Andrea Dunlop Her previous novels, She Regrets Nothing and Losing the Light, are a slow simmer of sinister motives, with characters often driven by selfish desires and unforgiving flaws We Came Here to Forget features Dunlop s similar dark undertones, but with an important distinction the characters, most of them anyway, know when they re slipping into self destructive territory, and beyond that, actually try and hel We [...]

    I m a massive fan of Dunlop s work and this continues to be true in what I consider her best work to date it s haunting, emotional, fun and honest A must read and great for a vacation I finished it in one day while in Mauritius

    Wow, this is such a great story I found myself so emotionally invested from the beginning which baffles me But I guess it has to do with the fact that I always feel strongly about US Olympians and admire their focus and talent It s heartbreaking to think of something tragic happening to any of them But this story is one that is so emotional and mesmerizing that I could hardly put it down
