Genre: Psychological Thriller
My Rating: 4/5
An accomplished photographer and the devoted mom of an adorable little boy, Allie Ross has just moved to an upscale DC suburb, the kind of place where parenting feels like a competitive sport. Allie’s desperate to make a good first impression. Then she’s framed for murder.
It all starts at a neighborhood party when a local dad corners Allie and calls her by an old, forgotten nickname from her dark past. The next day, he is found dead.
Soon, the police are knocking at her door, grilling her about a supposed Tinder relationship with the man, and pulling up texts between them. She learns quickly that she’s been hacked and someone is impersonating her online. Her reputation—socially and professionally—is at stake; even her husband starts to doubt her. As the killer closes in, Allie must reach back into a past she vowed to forget in order to learn the shocking truth of who is destroying her life.

Allie and her husband and son recently moved to their new neighborhood. At a neighbor’s party, Allie meets a man who seems to know her. When he is found dead the next day, Allie is a suspect. The catch is, Allie doesn’t know the man. As she tries to clear her name, she realizes someone from her past is out to get her.
I Don’t Forgive You has an intriguing plot. Allie is a suspect in a murder for a man she claims she doesn’t know. However, there are social media accounts that show otherwise. Allie tries to prove the accounts are fakes, but it’s not easy to do. Between being a murder suspect, cyberbullying, and local gossip, Allie’s life is slowly unraveling.
A gripping psychological thriller. I Don’t Forgive You is a fantastic debut novel, and I look forward to reading more by Aggie Blum Thompson. Atmospheric and creepy.
