It all started with the bereavement flowers with my name on them.



Not the best way to wake up, right? I work in a flower shop. I know a funeral arrangement when I see one.



I know a killer when I see one, too. And one is standing in my hospital room right now, straight behind the man who saved my life.



I can’t tell anyone the truth, because that’s the fastest way to really die. So I do the next best thing. I “lose” my memory. 



I fake my amnesia.



Pretending not to remember a brutal attempted murder has its perks. The killer is backing down, spending less time around me, loosening the noose.



The less I claim to recall, the more my rescuer, Duff, works to help me “remember.” I hate lying to him.



But he doesn’t understand that my memory is dangerous. To me. And to him.



Fooling everyone isn’t easy. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done.



Except it’s starting to look like I’ve been fooling myself.



In more ways than one.



Read Book 1 in the newest series from USA Today bestselling author Meli Raine.





“The first book in the False trilogy is a psychological thriller worthy of Hitchcock, keeping you guessing until the very end. Lily Thornton is the ultimate unreliable narrator — after waking from a 14-month coma, she struggles to remember the day she was shot. As Lily slowly recovers, she’s terrified when she recognizes the face of her would-be killer among her inner circle — but can she trust her own memory? With potential enemies at every turn, a twisty political conspiracy, and just a hint of romance, False Memory offers thrills that will delight both romance and mystery readers.” — Apple Books Editors


“…intrigue and dark humor on display in this thriller…”


While the immediate—and more compelling—tension in Raine’s (A Shameless Little Bet, 2018, etc.) heart-pumping series opener comes from Lily’s constant proximity to her would-be killer, the action takes place against a backdrop of secret government scandals. 


Fortunately, Lily’s voice is captivating, wry, and tough enough to sell this thriller. The novel ends with a cliffhanger that startles, if only because readers will have become so attached to Lily. 


— Kirkus Reviews

 Turns out there was a second video from that awful night four years ago. Mine wasn’t the only tape.


Too bad mine wasn’t the worst.

Drew can’t protect me no matter how hard he tries, but the roles are flipped now. I have to help him, but I’m not wired that way. Not anymore. That one night changed me more than anyone knows.

More than anyone could predict.

Three men think they’re above the law. They’re right.

But I’m willing to go beneath the law to make sure they never harm anyone else. Their threats don’t scare me. 

When you have nothing left to lose because someone took it all away, you create the most dangerous creature imaginable.

Me.

Game over.

How do I prove a negative?

I need to prove Jane is innocent, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. 

Mirrors, smoke, and lies can conjure a truth that isn't real. Money, bribes, and power can twist reality. 

What we call proof is all an elaborate magic act. 

So is love.

How do you prove you're in love? How can you know with unrelenting certainty that the person you can't live without really loves you?

It's all about what you believe. Who you believe. And I believe Jane. I love her. But it might be too late.

Or, worse - it might all be an illusion. If proof is just a magician's sleight of hand, then we're caught in a sick trick.

A deadly one.

One that doesn't end with applause.

But with a bang.
