Thought I Knew You by Kate Moretti

Reviewed by Charlotte

Greg Barnes kisses his wife’s, Claire, forehead and heads out for his business trip.  Claire stays home taking care of the kids and house waiting for Greg to return.  Only he never returns.

Claire and Drew, her lifelong best friend, decide that she needs answers and start to trace Greg’s last few trips and discovers more questions than answers.  As she tries to answer more questions, she realizes that her husband was not the man she thought he was.  As Claire and Drew work together to answer the questions their feelings for each other grow and they must learn to accept not all questions have answers.

I liked Claire.  She is down to earth and satisfied with her day to day life.  As the story goes on Claire realizes that what she thought was a perfect marriage was not quite what it appeared.  This realization made her grow stronger and more self-reliant.  She stayed strong with her support of Drew and her parents.  I loved how she didn't let her life go down the drain and worked hard to get back to a normal life.

Toward the end of the novel I was hoping to know what happen to Greg, but never dreamed what would be told.  Perfect ending, so unexpected.  Thought I Knew You is a story that caught you at the beginning and kept you until the end.  A very special novel that I highly recommend.
