Everyone keeps telling me I have to move on. And so here I am, walking down the road where he died, trying to remember him the right way.
A year after her husband Zach's death, Lizzie goes to lay flowers where his fatal accident took place.
As she makes her way along the motorway, she thinks about their life together. She wonders whether she has changed since Zach died. She wonders if she will ever feel whole again.
At last she reaches the spot. And there, tied to a tree, is a bunch of lilies. The flowers are addressed to her husband. Someone has been there before her.
Lizzie loved Zach. She really did.
But she's starting to realise she didn't really know him.
Or what he was capable of . . .

When a thriller leaves you looking over your shoulder, it's a sign the author's doing something right. In fact Durrant doesn't put a foot wrong with this assured and deeply unsettling chiller... Superb
Spellbindingly dark and intense drama
Grips immediately... Durrant sustains the mystery throughout and offers a clever resolution
This is one super-disturbing psychological thriller
Woman & Home
Durrant's debut, UNDER YOUR SKIN, was among the best of the wave of psychological thrillers that appeared in the wake of Gone Girl's success. REMEMBER ME THIS WAY is better still...An elegant, quietly chilling illustration of the ways in which lovers blind themselves to reality
Mail on Sunday
A writer who can leave you breathless with anticipation...A superb book, from start to finish.
Alex Marwood, author of The Wicked Girls
From its brilliant yet heart-breaking opening to its unexpected and shocking ending, it took me on an exhilarating and relentless journey until the very last page...as tense and terrifying as they come
Samantha Hayes, author of Until You're Mine
Totally gripped me: twisty, dark, beguiling. Just my kind of story. Brilliant.
Julia Crouch, author of Cuckoo and The Long Fall
An intelligent, compelling tale...both well constructed and suspenseful
Paula Daly, author of Just What Kind of Mother Are You?
Fresh and compelling prose, packed with twists. A treat.
Sarah Hilary, author of Someone Else's Skin
Tense and gripping ... a world that will leave readers desperately racing to the truth, along with Lizzie, via twists and turns that will give you goose bumps. An exceedingly good read
We Love This Book
Creepy and emotionally acute
Spectator - Andrew Taylor
Durrant is too cool simply to indulge the obvious. Brilliant on social signifiers and observation, her intelligent interpretation of the world and its psychologically complex inhabitants shines all the way to a satisfactory ending
If Sabine Durrant's previous psychological thriller UNDER YOUR SKIN, was indebted to Agatha Christie, the centrality of Cornwall in REMEMBER ME THIS WAY suggests Christie has been displaced by Daphne du Maurier.... While UNDER YOUR SKIN was striking, this is a stronger performance.
Alternating between Lizzie's narrative and Zach's diary, it's splendidly creepy, with plenty of paranoia
