Book review: Tell Me My Name

Hello and welcome again in yet another book review!!

Before starting, how are you guys coping up?!? Hope everyone is alright and my prayers to those who have the virus; You’ll do it!!

I also thank NetGalley for providing me with an e-ARC of this book in exchange of a review, Thank you!!

When a woman is snatched by an obsessed stranger claiming to be her soulmate, the consequences could be deadly in this suspenseful and darkly twisted psychological thriller … unless she can remember his name.

Ellie and Neil Patterson are eager to settle in to some quality time at their new cottage. It’s the first time in ten years they’ve been alone … or are they?

When a friendly encounter with their new neighbour leads to their violent kidnapping, they awake to a living nightmare. Insisting he is Ellie’s soulmate, the stranger gives her three chances to say his name. If she guesses wrong, it’s Neil who will suffer the consequences. This propels Ellie on a desperate trip down memory lane to dredge up the dubious men of her past.

Only after discovering the man’s true identity and sacrificing her own safety to save Neil does Ellie learn the truth — that everything she thought she knew about her husband and their decade-long love story was a lie. 

Erin Ruddy is a Toronto-based journalist and debut author. As the daughter of a movie critic, Erin spent most of her childhood in movie theaters, developing a deep affinity for the thriller genre. “Tell Me My Name” is her debut novel.

This was a fast and intriguing read full of intensity and suspense and wicked twists!

After Neil and Ellie drop off their two children at summer camp, they were eager to spend some quality time together and renew their marriage. However, things didn’t go as planned and the next thing they know is that they’re kidnapped by their new neighbor, who wouldn’t let them go unless Ellie tells him his name. He gave her three chances to do so and each time she gives the wrong name, her husband would pay…..He’ll die if the third one is also wrong.

I could feel what the characters were feeling while reading, which was quite entertaining!!! It made things much more dark and twisted and the pace kept me on my toes the entire time!
