Blog Tour: I Know My Name by C.J. Cooke

I Know My Name…But what if that’s the only thing you can remember?

Komméno Island, Greece: I don't know where I am, who I am. Help me.
A woman is washed up on a remote Greek island with no recollection of who she is or how she got there.

Potter’s Lane, Twickenham, London: Eloïse Shelley is officially missing.
Lochlan’s wife has vanished into thin air, leaving their toddler and twelve-week-old baby alone. Her money, car and passport are all in the house, with no signs of foul play. Every clue the police turn up means someone has told a lie…

Does a husband ever truly know his wife? Or a wife know her husband? Why is Eloïse missing? Why did she forget?
The truth is found in these pages…

Shona's review 5 of 5 stars

Today I picked up this book with the intention of reading a few chapters, but before I knew it I was almost half way through the book. So intriguing and well written that I was unable to prise myself from the book until I had read every word within. I lost myself in this book, not just with the plot but with the scenery, Cooke does an amazing job of writing the locations in this book that makes the reader feel like they are actually there. 

The book unfolds mainly from two points of view, Eloise and Lochlan's, with the occasional chapter from Gerda and Magnus who are Eloise's grandparents, and we get a few snippets from Eloise's childhood. In Lochlan's chapters we see the devastation left behind in Eloise's absence, In Eloise's chapters we experience her amnesia, and her growing unease with the people who find her on the beach. As the story progresses and relationships become clearer its easier to see how Eloise ended up on that beach and why she has no memory of the life she left behind.

This is the first time I have read anything bu Cooke, but it wont be my last.

Dont forget to check out the other stops on the tour.
