The Memory Box
Book Feature - The Memory Box by Eva Natiello
HBL Note: Eva Natiello wrote me an email starting with, “I just found your site and I love it! We have a lot in common—a love of books, great food, fashion and travel. I loved reading about the way you got started with your blog and how it was born out of your passion for reading, recommending, teaching and the stage of your career and family. It reminded me a lot of me! When new careers are created organically from all of those things they are bound for success. My first career was being the head of PR for Estee Lauder in NYC, so I have spent years working with all of the great fashion publications and personalities.” So obviously we are instant besties! Yes, anyone who loves books, great food, fashion, and travel is a friend of mine! I’m keeping this book until I have time to read it. In the meantime….check it out for yourselves:

What if you Googled yourself & found something shocking?
In this gripping page turner suspense, Caroline Thompson Googles herself and discovers the shocking details of a past she doesn't remember.
In this best seller suspense thriller, a group of privileged suburban moms amuses themselves by Googling everyone in town, digging up dirt to fuel thorny gossip. Caroline Thompson, devoted mother of two, sticks to the moral high ground and attempts to avoid these women. She’s relieved to hear her name appears only three times, citing her philanthropy. Despite being grateful that she has nothing to hide, a delayed pang of insecurity prods Caroline to Google her maiden name—which none of the others know.
The hits cascade like a tsunami. Caroline’s terrified by what she reads. An obituary for her twin sister, JD? That’s absurd. With every click, the revelations grow more alarming. They can’t be right. She’d know. Caroline is hurled into a state of paranoia—upending her blissful family life and marriage—desperate to prove these allegations false before someone discovers they’re true.
The disturbing underpinnings of The Memory Box expose a story of deceit, misconceptions, and an obsession for control. With its twists, taut pacing, and psychological tenor, Natiello's page turning suspense cautions:
Be careful what you search for.
