When I Was You by Amber Garza
Release Date - August 25, 2020
Kelly Medina is surprised to get a call from her son's old pediatrician about her well-baby appointment. Her son's an adult not a baby. She finds it surprising that a woman with her name has moved to her town. She soon meets and befriends this other Kelly Medina. One thing is clear, younger Kelly is not the best single mom and needs help managing everything. The older experienced mom Kelly is determined to help her out as she settles in this new town. What may seem like help to one could be construed as a dangerous obsession to another.
I have to admit that the writing draws you in. Clearly, there is a lot going on in the older Kelly's life that needs to be explained. That drew me in. The actual plot given in the book blurb about one of the Kelly's going missing comes into play so late in the book that by that point, you know exactly who and why.
That's the big downfall to When I Was You is that it wasn't hard to figure out what was going on. I wasn't surprised at any point. While I loved the pace, the plot, and the dialogue, the rest was predictable and never shocked me.
