Catherine remembers a ski vacation in Switzerland where her older sister Rachel was killed. She also remembers how cruel her sister had been and all the trouble she had caused while the two were growing up. Now Catherine is engaged to Dominic and is excited about planning her wedding. However, things aren’t going as they should, and someone is sending Catherine mementos from her past that make her suspicious that her malevolent sister Rachel may still be alive, and that Rachel is set on ruining Catherine’s wedding. Catherine comes home to find her beautiful wedding dress shredded and covered in blood; she’s broken-hearted and the police aren’t particularly helpful in finding the culprit.

Jane Holland’s second novel, Forget Her Name by award-winning novelist Jane Holland, begins with a suspenseful note and the suspense builds throughout the entire novel. There are twists and turns as in any good suspense/thriller, and the end is totally unexpected.

As the novel progresses, readers will be comfortable wondering whether Rachel is still alive, and all things point to that. There are however, things that don’t quite add up. The writing is excellent – Holland knows how to tell a story – and readers will find the book difficult to put down. Things are not as they appear, and readers will be fooled until the very end. The characters are believable, and seem real. All told, this is a novel that is recommended for anyone who likes something different and anyone who likes interesting twists at the end of a good suspense novel.
