roommate, trying on outfits before deciding on her green dress She does her hair and her make up They head to the bar to meet her blind date Ali is ready to start living a bit since the end of her marriage, and this is her first big step towards taking back her life.But then Ali wakes up on Sunday morning with blood on her hands and no memory of the night before What happened to her after she arrived at the bar Was she drugged Why is her head throbbing And then she goes in the bathroom to wash up, only to discover the nightmare she is now living in Ali can t recognize her own face.As Ali seeks answers, the nightmare only gets worse Ali isn t just having trouble recognizing herself, she can t recognize any faces And worse, someone seems to know what happened that night and they aren t letting Ali forget it What do you do when you re being stalked by someone you can t recognize Will Ali s past finally catch up to her ReflectionThis is quite possible the most unique premise for a thriller that I ve read in 2018 As a doctoral student in psychology, I ve heard of prosopagnosia But using it as a key element in a thriller is fantastic and twisted Prosopagnosia is a condition resulting from trauma or damage to the fusiform gyrus in your brain, which is the part of the brain responsible for processing and encoding faces There s a broader area right there called the Inferior Temporal Gyrus and it is actually responsible for all visual object recognition Damage to that area is incredibly sad, because it impacts processing of visual information so much In fact, if you re interested you should look up the famous case that really brought this condition into the forefront of psychology, The Man Who Mistook His Wife For a Hat.But I digress I actually can t even imagine how scary this would be to live with Jensen uses this very real condition to create a twisted web of terror encompassing Ali At any moment, Ali has no clue whether she knows her stalker, whether she would recognize them without this condition, or even whether her stalker is a male or female Imagine if every face you saw could be the person who is trying to destroy your life, but you d have no idea There were a few scenes in this that literally gave me goosebumps imagining how scared Ali must be I loved the way Jensen went not only into the terror Ali felt at her situation, but also into the other life implications of living with prosopagnosia At one point, Ali mentions that her doctor told her that developing social anxiety is incredibly common with prosopagnosia, because the individual worries that they aren t recognizing someone they should and that they may not read emotions from people correctly and could respond inappropriately This was such a great addition to the novel It made me think outside of this thriller about what it would be like to live with prosopagnosia day in and out.I read this as a Traveling Sisters read with Brenda, Norma, and Berit Overall we loved it and had an amazing experience reading and discussing this one together I am so excited by how well Louise Jensen is doing as a fairly new author, and I can t wait to see what she comes out

by Louise Jensen and published in 2018 I always look forward to savoring a creepy and well written suspenseful story, and this one definitely delivered a strong and fantastic punch Many thanks to NetGalley for providing me with a copy.Have you ever woken up and forgotten what happened the night before I m sure it s happened to all of us at some point Most of the time we recover those memories Then again, most of the time we also recognize our own face in the mirror Unfortunately for Ali, neither is happening when she wakes up one morning after a date with some online mystery man that her friends convinced her to finally take a chance with She s separated from her husband, trying to figure out how to move forward after some problems, and suffers from something traumatic in her childhood All three of these things remain center stage as Ali tries to piece together the night without telling her friends or brother that she doesn t have a full memory or can t recognize people s faces any Something happened to her and the blood and head wound must be the place to start.This is a psychological horror of a novel in a good way It s well written and not medically technical on any level Enough details are explained so readers know why she can t remember and what type of reality this is in the world Although rare, if a certain part of the brain is injured, it s possible to not continue to remember what someone looks like Ali s other senses need to step up, but it doesn t seem to be happening quickly enough When her roommate disappears, Ali starts wondering if maybe she s the one who did something bad and not the other way around Even the police grow suspicious, but she continues to receive support from 3 or 4 people We all know one of them is lying, but it s not easy to tell what s happened behind the scenes Is it the brother The aunt The best friend The guy next door The hypnotist The soon to be husband Or someone else lurking in the night and scaring her with notes and messages all over the house.I read this book all in one day I started in the morning before the gym and assumed I d read 30 or 40 pages to see if I liked the book Next thing I know, I m 200 pages in and late for the gym I had to finish reading later in the afternoon and I ve held off writing the review because it s so hard determining what to say without giving away the plot I kinda figured out what was going on, or at least who was behind it all But the reason blew me away I wasn t expecting to find out the true details of the past so late in the game, but as soon as they were revealed, the whole story made sense to me Great job, Jensen I m definitely going to be reading of your novels flag 89 likesLike see review View all 8 comments Jul 08, 2018 Susanne Strong rated it

Something happened on her date but Ali could not remember it When she wakes up the next day, the visible signs left on her body appears to tell a story and worser is when she couldn t recognize anyone s faces including her own This book is organized by days of the week following her date There is a mystery italicize narrative after every few chapters and a mystery to Ali s past that she keeps it a secret Following the days after her date, she started receiving threatening messages in different forms a package, texts, notes, etc It scares her but she couldn t report to the police because of her secret.The Date is well written and it introduces readers to a new but not rare medical condition that will keep readers turning the pages I haven t heard of Face Blindness before so it s interesting for me to read about it I like the mystery with Ali s family At first I didn t think the daddy issues would have anything to do with the story and the read was not very interesting to me Ali s friends, neighbor, and Matt are mundane as well I do like the twists though so it definitely helps spin the story around Pro fast paced, cover, suspense, mystery, medical condition, datingCon too much

Google I need answers now Prosopagnosia is a neurological disorder characterized by the inability to recognize faces Prosopagnosia is also known as face blindness or facial agnosia Prosopagnosia is not related to memory dysfunction, memory loss, impaired vision, or learning disabilities Alrighty, so it is real And Louise Jensen has taken this very interesting medical condition and written a book around it which had me turning the pages frantically to find out what the heck would happen As the story unfolded I really could not put it down and kept rearranging my theories when I could even think of something all the way to the end So yes, I enjoyed the book and I also learned something I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.For review please visit flag 63 likesLike

has taken all of my expectations and blown them out of the water I never did get around to reading Jensen s three other novels, and I am surely kicking myself for it now The Date is completely and totally un putdownable Every chapter ends with a cliff hanger that left me desperate to keep reading, and the suspense fueled plotline kept me on the edge of my seat.This novel is creepy on many different levels, and has everything that a psychological thriller should have The whodunit component is there of course, and the path to the actual ending is full of twists and turns, speculation and questioning When the end arrives, it wraps itself up in a nice, succinct package, and is both unpredictable and completely satisfying Hands down, this novel took me by surprise in all the best ways My

Please Hands on me Pain Blackness You deserve everything you get And the hope that Saturday night was an accident, or even a random attack by a stranger, turns to ashes You have blood on your hands Oh God, what have I done What have I done again ABOUT THIS BOOK Something bad has happened to Alison Taylor Her Saturday night started normally Recently separated from her husband, Ali has been persuaded by her friends to go on a date with a new man She is ready, she is nervous, she is excited She is about to take a step into her new future By Sunday morning, Ali s life is unrecognisable She wakes, and she knows that something is wrong She is home, she is alone, she is hurt and she has no memory of what happened to her Worse still, when she looks in the mirror, Ali doesn t recognise the face staring back at her She can t recognise her friends and family And she can t recognise the person who is trying to destroy her MY THOUGHTS Terrifying Imagine looking in the mirror and not recognising the face staring back at you Not recognising anyone, your brother, your husband, your friends, your work colleagues Never knowing, never being quite sure who these people are, walking past them on the street We all fail to recognize people out of context, away from where we normally see them, but this is infinitely worse Even terrifying when someone is stalking you If you do see them, you won t recognise themEven scary when you have a secret, a secret buried deep in your past, one that you can t escape, that you will carry with you always, a secret that you have learned to live with, but one that someone else now knows It doesn t work, does it, burying secrets They always become unearthed dark and dirty and ready to destroy As I said, terrifying But you are going to have to suspend belief to really enjoy The Date And I did while I was reading I tore through the pages Breathless Unable to stop to even think Every possibility, every scenario drew me in Imagine being trapped inside a kaleidoscope lined with distorting fun fair mirrors That is how I felt as I was reading But when I had finished, little inconsistencies began to niggle at me I wasn t so sure any I have never had this happen before I have had the opposite happen I have read books where, having finished them, they have continued to grow on me Whereas my pleasure in The Date diminished a little the I thought about it Don t get me wrong This was an incredible read, one that I won t hesitate to recommend But there was a worm in my apple One that, try as I might, I just can t identify Thank you to Bookouture via

reflection staring back is someone in the realm of a prizefighter who took a bad, bad hit Whatever happened to Alison last night Louise Jensen presents a story filled with uncertainty, secrets, stalking, and a shaky life going down a big black hole Jensen s main character Alison has separated from her husband, Matt, after being married for only a short time She moves in with Chrissy whom she has just met Chrissy encourages Alison to check out a dating site She agrees to meet this new prospect at a nearby club But our girl Alison has no recollection whatsoever of what transpired the night before Chrissy, herself, hasn t shown up at the house since that night either But Chrissy is known to hook up with many a guy afterwards.Soon Alison begins to receive notes, flowers, and spray paint on her door This date was the date from hell Louise Jensen drums up quite the tension here with Alison drawing blanks around every curve She can t remember a thing and can t even recall the face of that man who left physical and emotional marks on her All in all, The Date is dipped heavily in psychological twists and turns and has you turning pages just to see who the who is The process is ladened with quite a bit of footwork to get to the story s climax Even though you may have guessed who the individual is, you still need the how and the why Louise Jensen seals the deal I m looking forward to from this author after having read The Sister as well More crazy and creepy on the horizon flag 53 likesLike see review View all 16 comments Jul 11, 2018 Bibi rated it did not like it

Allison Sarah, the main character, was not someone I liked or could empathise with and all that nonsense about losing the ability to recognise faces was preposterous and certainly a big glaring deus

cracking good read, and I will definitely be checking out this authors other books.
