Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Wow, I really enjoyed this book! It was twisty and turny, and kept me guessing constantly! It has a great plot that had some unique things for a thriller.

We have our main character, Jane, who has a unique ability to recognize faces. She’s the epitome of the “I never forget a face” kind of person. Her job places her in an airport watching for known terrorists when she recognizes the face of the woman she thinks killed her sister. From there we are off on a crazy race to get to the bottom of what happened to Jane’s sister.

The story is told through two viewpoints, and I really liked that. I wasn’t sure how it was all going to play out for the longest time, I mean really, not until the author told me. It made it such a fun read! I would absolutely recommend this for readers that enjoy a mystery/thriller that focuses on families.

Trigger warning:
Drug abuse, murder.

Jane Ellison is a “super recognizer” able to identify strangers by the slightest facial details—the curve of a head, the arch of an eyebrow. When she spies human rights activist and heiress Bella Valencia in a crowded Boston airport, Jane’s convinced she’s found the person responsible for her sister Kit’s disappearance and presumed death eleven years earlier. But her attempt to detain the suspect ends with Jane herself fired and humiliated. 

As Bella prepares to marry Will Pease, scion of the uber-wealthy, influential, and ruthless Pease family, famous for their wholesome wellness and lifestyle brand, on their private Cape Cod island, she grows increasingly anxious that her dire secret will be revealed and used against her by—of all people—the man she loves.

She has reason to fear: Jane is ready to risk everything for the chance to publicly expose Bella’s crimes at her upcoming celebrity wedding. But the more she digs into what happened that night, the more she questions her own assumptions. 

Combining magnetic, wise-cracking narration and a skillfully layered plot, Do I Know You? is a gripping psychological thriller and tale of redemption that reveals the power of a sister’s love.
