    This novel took me on a completely unexpected ride through one woman's journey of triumph, tragedy, pain, and resilience. I've not before read an Andrea Dunlop story but plan to remedy that fact. She explores a very dark side of human nature in this book through eyes of a woman who bea...

    Thanks to Atria Books and Netgalley for the advance reader copy in exchange for my review. I liked this contemporary novel very much, all the way up to the very end. Then I still liked it, but I was disappointed by the author?s choice of ending. Oh well, different strokes and I won?...

    Thanks to Atria and Netgalley for the free review copy. I?m struggling to come up with what to say about this one. I really enjoyed the book until the epilogue. The dual timeline narrative was a great way to tell the story and keep interest and suspense building. The storyline in ...

    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 Forge...

    I?m clearly in the minority for this, but I truly could not connect to this book. I?ve picked it up and subsequently put it down three times, and I think it?s time for both of us to move on with our lives. Based on the glowing reviews, I still recommend giving this a shot, but li...

    ????? 3 stars For the most part We Came Here to Forget was a somewhat inconsistent read. Perhaps this is due to the two timelines, one which follows Katie Cleary as she grows up, and the other one focuses on the aftermath a personal tragedy. In order to escape from her unb...

    We Came Here to Forget captured my attention from the very first page. We learn in the first few pages that a tragedy has taken place, but we don?t know what happened. As the story unravels we learn more about what happened.????????? ???????? I rea...

    ?How fierce is denial when acceptance means losing so much?? Beautiful! Andrea Dunlop is one of my favorite contemporary authors. This book tells the story of Katie Cleary, an Olympic athlete who seems to have it all. A loving family, a longtime boyfriend and many awards. ...

    2.5 Stars Beautiful cover for what I am sure some will find as a beautiful story, but I struggled with this one. Katie (Liz) has a traumatic event happen that is somehow related to her sister but it takes almost 80% of the book before we figure out exactly what that is. The book alt...

    I LOVED this book! This is one of the few books where I loved both the writing style and the plot. I feel like the main character (Liz/Katie) was very relatable and a good representation of all of anyone who has endured something tough and tried to forget that it ever happened as a cop...

    Oh my goodness was this book so heartbreakingly emotional and beautiful! I had NO Idea how much I would end up loving this story. I'm so glad that I took a chance on this book and fell in love with Andrea Dunlop's writing. We Came Here to Forget is a story that presents how we ...

    This was my first book by Dunlop and I found her writing to be beautiful and emotional. I enjoyed how the story bounced back and forth between present day and the past as it gave you a bit more about why she wanted to runaway. While you read along you can't help but to feel empathetic ...

    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 wh...

    This one had a competing timeline, vague plot, and characters that were more like the spoiled brat v the golden child feel to me. I simply couldn't connect with the 'superstar' and her dilemma nor the wealthy brothers who seemed to have it all. It seems apparent from the start this w...

    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! ...

    The thing about tragedy is that it isn't about just getting through it, it's about getting on with your life when the dust has settled but the landscape is bombed out, smoke in the air, charred remains at your feet. ? Andrea Dunlop, We Came Here to Forget . . Pick up Andrea Dunlop...

    ??The happy ending is we all survive.??-Andrea Dunlap What an amazing book! I didn?t think I would like it due to the dark theme throughout, but I found myself rooting for Katie. She was judged for something she didn?t have a part in and it destroyed the life she kne...
