Review: Believe Me Not by Natalie Chandler.


When Megan wakes up in a hospital bed, her first question is: where’s my baby?

But her husband, her sister and her doctor say he doesn’t exist.

Megan’s not in a maternity ward, she’s in a psychiatric unit.

Convinced that they’re lying to her, Megan is determined to find out the truth.

But how can you prove your baby exists when you can’t trust your own memories?

🚼My Thoughts: I was so greedy and I absolutely ate this book up! No stopping. I didn’t even have any notes for review I was that engrossed. The plot is extremely smart. It’s a dark and dangerous tale and one that has your heart pumping! It’s also honestly just so heartbreaking. Megan is a great heroine and gives the book food for thought and heart. Do you know what? I can’t even write anything here ‘cos I’m so scared I’ll give something away! That is not something needed with this read. For a Debut Novel it’s an overwhelming success and makes me very excited to see what Natalie Chandler does next.

I can’t recommend this book enough. Honestly, it’s like I said a dark and dangerous read. A poignant, empathetic, mind twisting treat.



P.S.. I also need to add here that I actually listened to the audio book. I’m usually not a fan of them too as I feel you lose connections with characters for some reason. I don’t know, I just feel it loses depth. Strange thing is that I didnt feel it with Believe Me Not though! So I am really looking forward to getting into an actual copy of the book because I know it will be grittier, deeper and have so much more pull. Still though, it was so great.
