You think you know me - Clare Chase

Sometimes, it’s not easy to tell the good guys from the bad …

Freelance journalist, Anna Morris, is struggling to make a name for herself, so she’s delighted to attend a launch event for a hip, young artist at her friend Seb’s gallery.

But an exclusive interview isn’t all Anna comes away with. After an encounter with the enigmatic Darrick Farron, she is flung into the shady underground of the art scene – a world of underhand dealings, missing paintings and mysterious deaths …

Seb is intent on convincing Anna that Darrick is up to no good but, try as she might, she can’t seem to keep away from him. And as she becomes further embroiled, Anna begins to wonder – is Seb’s behaviour the well-intentioned concern of an old friend, or does he have something to hide? 

My thoughts:
I had no idea who to trust in this book. Usually I can figure it out, but well played, well played. The author did her best to throw in confusion and make the heroine wonder.

Anna is a journalist, who gets an interview through her friend Sebastian. And here is confusion starts. See there is this strange guy there called Darrick. She fancies him, he fancies her, but she is told not to trust him. They do not know who he is.

So yes, at first I did not trust Darrick. But it was so obvious they would end up together. But I did not trust him! Then I trusted him, then I did not trust him. Then I did not know what to think.

As for Sebastian, him I trusted, he was an old friend, but then! I did not trust him either. What was he hiding? Was he hiding something?

Not exactly a thriller, but almost. There was romance, there was suspense, and there was danger. And the title sure fits, I might think I knew someone, but I did not.

Conclusion:
Suspenseful, and a book where you do not know who to trust.
