But I realized the author was Megan Hart we knew her from her erotic romance novels and she wrote this book with different pen-name which intrigued my attention because lately most of the romance authors wrote successful thriller novels and I wish they may change their genre choice and keep on writing those suspicious, exciting stories. But this time I got a little disappointed. Even though our heroine Diana Sparrow’s traumatized memory loss after being badly injured from an accident ( we still have doubts if it is real accident. Could somebody try to kill her?) is an interesting topic, I had real hard time to connect with her. I continue to read for witnessing the struggles she endured during her psychical healing and adapting in her daily life routine. And of course she is already estranged with her husband who acts doubtful and hearing alarm bells that he is a notorious cheater. And we are so right: The scumbag husband is having an affair with best friend Val. Don’t stop! I can hear you boo and I happily join you! But don’t worry! We have charming newcomer Cole Pelham who may provide the comfort and quality time Diana needs. But what happened at the day of accident? Could she still be in danger? She needs to gather pieces of her memories to find out the truth, right? My problem about this book is its way too much fast pacing. We are just running to catch the story and that may be the one of the reason we didn’t have enough time to connect with the characters! Okay, I’m taking back. Even though the author wrote some deep level character analysis and tell us a slow burn story, we may still hate the characters: because they’re truly created to hate! And I may admit that we enjoy hating them! It’s natural like hating your neighbors in these days! (I take it back, I was hating them before the Pandemic, too!) And the ending was too predictable. I didn’t use my spidey senses because this book’s twists are too easy to foresee and I didn’t want to exhaust them for nothing. Overall: Hateful characters, predictable twists, foreseeable ending, whirlwind story-telling ended with my 3 solid- I didn’t hate the book ( I only want to choke the characters) but I didn’t like it, too so let’s meet in the middle stars! Special thanks to NetGalley and Crooked Lane Books for sharing this ARC in exchange my honest review.

    I picked this book up on a whim, on account of the vibrantly colorful cover, and I really enjoyed it! Apparently this author normally writes romance, and I could definitely get that from this story - tons of intimate moments and romance drama in this one! That's not to say this wasn't incredibly entertaining though. I flew through this 261 page read in just 3 short sittings, and although I could predict it, I absolutely loved the ending.

The characters were all over the top, yet amusing, and the mystery element in this was great - anything to do with amnesia is intriguing to me, to say the least. Our main character, Diana, has been in a automobile accident and sustained head injuries resulting in her short-term memory loss. What happened the night of the accident? Was it just an accident, or was something else afoot? Her husband is having an affair, and she definitely knows it, but why does she not confront him about it? How is her best friend involved? Why is her mother-in-law suffocating her and not giving her any space? Who is this mysterious character Cole that befriends Diana seemingly randomly? How does this all tie together? These were all questions I asked myself while reading this, and it kept me fully engaged throughout! I'm definitely going to keep reading Hardy, who very well may be a new 'guilty pleasure' of mine!

Diana was in a serious car accident and had immediate surgery and was left with anesthesia.induced amnesia and she doesn't not remember anything about any events that occurred the year prior to her accident. Diana was helpless for many months after her accident due to both collar bones being broken alone with her fractured ribs and so many other injuries, so she was dependent on her wonderful but sometimes very smothering mother-in-law who was so patient and kind to her throughout her recovery with taking care of all the cooking and household chores that needed to be done everyday since Diana's husband was working all the time and also having an affair with her best friend Val. As Diana continues to improve she finds herself having reactions to her medications (she does drink alcohol often) and is having dizzy spells with complete exhaustion happening regularly but she still needs her prescriptions because her pain can be unbearable at times. Lately, Diana is finding more and more pieces of her memory disappearing along with having recurring, horrific nightmares where she thinks she buried a body in her back yard and wakes up screaming on a regular basis. Something is very wrong with Diana and she keeps having setbacks with her healing and memory loss and also also is having feelings of being watched and followed by an invisible presence. Is all this in Diana's head of is something more sinister happening to her as she begins to distrust all the people around her as well as her own sanity. What really happened on the night of Diana's car accident and is her life in danger if she recovers those deeply buried memories or did Diana do something so horrible that her brain had hidden an awful and devastating truth from her present state of consciousness. This was a very entertaining story and a fast read. The first part of the story moved slowly but halfway in it became a real page turner. The majority of the characters were annoying and unlikeable including Diana. I thought I knew how the story would play out but nothing could have prepared me for the most wild, ludicrous and unpredictable twists that this book took so it got an extra star from me even though the story seemed rushed at the ending but it was a lot of fun to read this outrageous story.. I look forward to reading more books by Mina Hardy in the future. I want to thank the publisher 'Crooked Lane Books" and Netgalley for the opportunity to read this book and any thoughts and opinions expressed are unbiased and mine alone! I have given this book a rating of 3 1/2 Shocking 🕞🌟🌟🌟🌠 Stars!!

I loved listening to Diana try to figure out what was going on. The ending is so crazy and disturbing. I definitely didn’t see it coming. I listened to the audiobook narrated by Angela Lin, Zura Johnson, and Jay Aaseng and all did a fantastic job. They all spoke with emotion. I felt like Diana, Val and Jonathan were talking to me.

She doesn't remember anything that happened in the months leading up to her accident but while she is recovering, at home with help from Jonathan's mother Harriet, realises that her best friend from childhood, Val is having an affair with her husband Jonathan. Told from three different points of view with flashbacks to the past when Val and Diana were young as well as to the time before the accident, this novel took a while for me to feel invested enough to want to find out what happened. None of the characters involved in the love triangle are easy to empathize with and I really struggled to care about how that was going to turn out. I also didn't feel that we got to know the characters very well. Diana is supposed to have been a competent career woman before the accident but that's hard to see. She is also supposed to have a close mother-daughter relationship with Harriet but that's also hard to see as she spends much of the book annoyed at Harriet trying to smother her. However, around half way through, we start to hear from a third voice and suddenly the plot became a lot more interesting, especially as we start to put together the pieces missing from Diana's memory. The ending felt a bit rushed, even though we had some clues about what was going on, (view spoiler)[ and I felt that the shocking revelation wasn't necessary (hide spoiler)] and I had quite a few questions that weren't answered. 3.5★ With thanks to Crooked Lane Books and Netgalley for a copy to read

    What a unique, disturbing twist! At first, during the first 90%, you’d get the impression that this is just another one of those predictable domestic thrillers where the amnesiac protagonist’s husband is the obvious perpetrator, but the ending of this proves us wrong completely.

At first, during the first 90%, you’d get the impression that this is just another one of those predictable domestic thrillers where the amnesiac protagonist’s husband is the obvious perpetrator, but the ending of this proves us wrong completely. Not only does the author make sure to keep us engaged from start to finish, but she also surprises us with a completely unsettling final revelation. After All I’ve Done revolves around a badly injured woman, Diana, who knows 2 things for certain: 1. She’s missing five months of her memory. 2. Her husband is cheating on her...with her best friend. We have the POVs of the “Wife” and the “Other Woman”. The main mystery is...what exactly happened the night of the accident? Did her car hit something or...someONE? She’s having a hard time remembering until... elusive newcomer Cole Pelham arrives, and Diana...she’s not exactly ready for what she’s about to remember... As an avid thriller reader, I thought of the most disturbing thing that could come out of this story, especially because one of the characters’ behavior was really suspicious, so I thought, “what if...?” but then I shook the thought away, thinking, “no way, because that would mean that...”, and then at the end, Bam! it happened, and I was shook to my core. I appreciated that the twist did make sense because there were hidden clues all throughout that prove it. Definitely worth the read!

    This book is a wild ride. The majority of the book is about a love triangle between Diana (the heroine), her husband Jonathan, and her best friend Val.

We then follow Diana and Val as Diana slowly unravels the drama that took place during that time while her husband’s mother helps take care of her. This book is a tough one to review! On the one hand, it’s compulsively readable, a page turner, and kept me interested and invested throughout. On the other hand, I felt like the majority of the book (maybe the first 3/4) focused more on relationship and love-triangle drama than mystery and murder, which is more what I like in my suspense books. There’s a lot of action and solving of the mysteries at the end, which was good, but then there was also one twist too far that for me was super unbelievable. Overall I thought this author had a lot of talent and the book was fun to read. I’d be interested in reading a book from her that was a little less family/affair drama and a little more murder mystery from the start. (And I have to say, this book has a great title that fits perfectly.) 3.5 stars, rounded up for the fun in reading this.

I absolutely enjoyed the multiple pov narration and the practical but totally quotable writing. I actually have a few quotes I had to highlighten, but I'll only share them once the book comes out as the publisher asked. However, I must admit that one of the few complaints I have about this book is actually about the writing. There's an abundance of details that tends to sound tedious, especially when details aren't needed, and the mechanic narration of some scenes does no good for the otherwise fast pace. I'm no writer, but I think pouring yourself a glass of wine shouldn't take four paragraphs. But anyway, I had fun being inside Diana, Val and Cole's head and watch the mystery of the infamous incident unravel under my eyes. They were quite likeable for such unlikable characters. I was also able to detach myself from them to the point I could really enjoy how twisted, broken and multifaceted they all are without feeling like I needed to explain why I felt sympathy for them. The plot was okay, nothing extraordinary overall, but some things and moments totally had my mind explode. That ending...phew, I had my suspicions, but seeing them confirmed only made the impact of the twist louder. I'll also never forget the writer for wasting all that wine. Jokes aside, After All I've Done is a very well done job and the author is not afraid to touch places that should be untouched unless it's for fictional purposes. I appreciate the audacity and it won't be my last time reading something by this author. Oh, and that quote from The Outsiders? I loved it with all my heart.

    This book wasn’t for me. It follows the story of Diana, who is suffering from amnesia after a car accident. I appreciate a good amnesia plot twist just like the next person, but this didn’t make the mark. The story was hard to get into, but picked up about halfway through. The ending seemed rushed and ultimately left me disappointed. The final revelation was definitely not anything I had hoped it would be.

I finished this one in just two evenings after work this week! Thrills, and chills, and whatever else ends in “ills” including a main character suffering from anesthesia-induced amnesia (that’s a kind of “ill”, right? Ha ha.) *First though: A huge shout out to Mina Hardy, Crooked Lane Books, and NetGalley for providing a free Advanced Reader Copy in exchange for this honest review.* Diana is fresh out of the hospital after both a devastating car crash and an appendectomy. Due to side affects from the surgery, she has a big gaping hole of several months in her memory, which she finds severely disorienting and more than a little disturbing. She often seems to “get things wrong” and even her close friends and family patronize her with little comments such as, “Oh, Diana, you just forgot”. But Diana is certain that’s not the case. She finds little things that just don’t feel quite right - like the “to do” list in her night stand drawer that she can’t remember writing – what do these things mean? What else has she forgotten and is not remembering? One thing that she IS sure of is that her husband is sleeping with her best friend. I literally kept (fun-lovingly) “shouting” at my Kindle as I tore from one page to the next in this novel (my husband guffawing at my antics from his easy chair all the while). “This lady’s totally being gaslighted! But I don’t know who’s doing it – is it her mother-in-law? Her husband? Her best friend? Her cute flirt-partner Cole? Or is it ALL of them? I just don’t know!” (Side note: If you haven’t seen the 1994 Ingrid Bergman film “Gaslight”, why are you just standing there - go stream it right now!) A truly great read and quite a page turner. Five stars, hands down. If you’re a fan of psychological thrillers, in the style of Daphne DuMaurier’s gothic romance “Rebecca”, then this one’s for you! Trust me, you won’t be disappointed – this is one of the best novels I’ve read all year! #AfterAllIveDone #MinaHardy #MeganHart #CrookedLaneBooks #NetGalley #MysteryThrillers #GothicRomance

As she is recovering from her painful injuries, she is trying to piece together what she knew from before with what is happening now. However, those closest in her life seem to think they know what’s best for her. When things aren’t adding up, Diana must push forward in the only way she knows how. “Is not being able to remember the same as forgetting?” Going into this book, the blurb had me hooked due to the combination of suspenseful and angsty elements, and the story does deliver. With the narrative shifting between past and present and among multiple POVs, the pace and plot unravels steadily as knowing more evokes more questions. “Even if the memories are painful, I should still get to have them. No matter what they are.” After the first few chapters, I thought I could declare an allegiance to a certain character, but as the plot ensues, it becomes clear that all the characters are unlikable in varying degrees. As such, I found that approach to be even more intriguing in trying to determine if it’s the action or the character as a whole. With Diana and Valerie having a longstanding connection, it underscores what transpires and made me wonder if their friendship could withstand. As for the other pivotal characters, each had a part to play and the choreography is good and twisted. Throughout, I had many theories, and while the ending was a bit abrupt for my preference, I was content with how it all settled. After All I’ve Done is a twisty and suspenseful read shining a spotlight on the vulnerabilities and obsessions of love, family and friendship. *An ARC was provided in exchange for an honest review.* *This was a (F)BR with Twinsie Hawkey!* For more reviews/reveals/giveaways visit:

    A perfectly delicious twist-fest for psychological thriller lovers! As you can see by my rating, I loved this book. It is a great example of unreliable narrator trope which kept me suspecting and guessing! I did guess one of the final twists but then was totally shocked by another revelation which won't leave any reader unaffected. Thank you to Netgalley and Crooked Lane Books for my eARC.

    Nicole ☠ "psychological" thrill me❗

    Completely and utterly speechless . I devoured this book in a few short hours. Gripping, compelling and so unbelievably twisted, “After All I’ve Done” pulled me in and never let me go. This had all the qualities I want in a psychological thriller from non-stop twists, unreliable characters (most whom you hate), and an ending that I never saw coming. I thought the plot, at first, seemed like it had been done before with the whole “car accident causing amnesia “ but wow was I wrong. This book was Completely and utterly speechless .

    All the stars! Diana had a major car accident that resulted in a constant massive amount of pain, several broken bones, in addition to a blank time-period in her memory. There are some things she remember though, most importantly that she does not love her husband, Jonathan. Diana soon discovers that Jonathan is cheating on her with her life-long best friend, Viv.

Diana had a major car accident that resulted in a constant massive amount of pain, several broken bones, in addition to a blank time-period in her memory. There are some things she remember though, most importantly that she does not love her husband, Jonathan. Diana soon discovers that Jonathan is cheating on her with her life-long best friend, Viv. She's naturally disappointed in Jonathan, but deeply hurt by Viv, who has been her like her non-biological sister since they were children. But Viv's betrayal isn't the weirdest thing by far, Diana keeps getting a recurring vivid dream of the night of accident, which causes her to think that maybe she hurt someone right before the accident. Alone in her pain and blurred thoughts with no one caring for her but her mother in law, Diana tries to piece together the puzzle that is her life right now and what it used to be before the accident. Even though I had some suspicions about the ending, I was completely blown away by how the story unfolded. I definitely recommend After All I've Done to fans of Sometimes I Lie and Gone Girl. *I received this book from the publisher in return for an honest review.

    Genre: Psychological Thriller Type: Standalone POV: First Person - Multiple Rating: Diana Sparrow’s life changed with a blink of eyes. A horrific accident not only left her with long term pain but also several months of lost memories.

One thing she knew for sure, she could never trust her loved ones anymore because they held secrets she desperately needed to uncover. I went into this one blind and I’m glad considering the blurb revealed too much of the story. It was interesting and had me guessing with my own theories. However, after a certain point, it was easy to deduce the answer, and the ending was a bit too much in telenovela proportion. Still, it was an engrossing page-turner that I enjoyed. My love for Jonathan is like nothing I’ve ever felt or ever thought I would feel. It has ruined me for anything else. I loved how the characters were unlikable including Diana. They made for a much more interesting read. Each of them had their own agenda they were trying to protect and it was good to see how far they would go. After All I’ve Done is a story of family, friendship, and deception. It would appeal to readers who enjoy a domestic thriller with a good dose of drama and a dash of romance. 🌿🐍🌿. . .

    Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Release date: 11/10/2020 So it's seems that now I have a thing for thrillers? WHO WOULD HAVE SAID THAT? After all I've done follows the story of a woman named Diane, who is recovering after a pretty bad car accident and left her with two broken clavicles and amnesia induced by anesthesia. But she remembers some stuff. Like her husband is cheating her with her best friend.

Release date: 11/10/2020 So it's seems that now I have a thing for thrillers? WHO WOULD HAVE SAID THAT? After all I've done follows the story of a woman named Diane, who is recovering after a pretty bad car accident and left her with two broken clavicles and amnesia induced by anesthesia. But she remembers some stuff. Like her husband is cheating her with her best friend. If thing couldn't get worse, she starts having very terrifying nightmares. But something inside her tells that they have a little bit of true in them... The premise was really intriguing but I wasn't expecting to like it this much. The concepts are not the MOST original: the all memory loss and the protagonist feeling weird has been written before. But the author did a great job making this characters. They were so powerful and it was so interesting to be able to get to know the characters from differents POV's. I'm not used to don't like the characters bc all I read is fantasy, YA and romance (lol) but to have such sh*tty characters and enjoying the story regardless was surprising! The writing was so simple and adicting that it kept me reading for hours. The author was so sutile in the way she left clues behind that it made you realize that something was NOT ok but not telling you about it either, was fantastic! The pacing was sometimes a little off, but I like it anyway. The plot twist was AMAZING in my opinion, but it happened during the last few pages so the end felt a little rushed. I would have loved to see more about what happened afterwards. Maybe 4 stars is too much for some thriller's fan out here, but I really enjoyed it! If you made it this far, and want to leave some thriller's recommendation, I would love to hear them!

    Diana has lost several months of her memory, she knows her husband is having an affair, but not how she felt about it. Her mother-in-law is overbearing, but cares for her in a way her own mother never did. Her best friend, her husband's mistress, should be like her sister, but now she doesn't have her either. What she does have is questions, endless questions, and a nightmare that tells her something is buried that is the key to everything. Labeled a psychological suspense, After All I've Done sh Diana has lost several months of her memory, she knows her husband is having an affair, but not how she felt about it. Her mother-in-law is overbearing, but cares for her in a way her own mother never did. Her best friend, her husband's mistress, should be like her sister, but now she doesn't have her either. What she does have is questions, endless questions, and a nightmare that tells her something is buried that is the key to everything. Labeled a psychological suspense, After All I've Done should also be flagged a women's fiction. While there certainly is suspense and thrill, there's a lot of love-triangle drama and family issues that really take over the story. I should've loved this book, I crave unreliable narrators in my books, but I never felt anything towards any of the characters, not a single one. We get so many perspectives, but none that made me feel sympathy or even anger. Diana, despite her memory loss, is described as a fairly successful individual, we certainly never see that in her actions. There's no common sense. Val's perspective is straight fluff, sure she reveals backstory that's vital, but good grief love sick is not fun to read. And then there's the other perceptive, it was a great addition, just one not explored enough. I did read it over the course of 24 hours, so I was engaged, but it was fairly predictable. Plus, I know Mina Hardy writes women's erotica and romance, but the extra descriptors I usually want in those books I just did not need in this. Just 5% in there is a description of Diana's husband using the restroom, it wasn't necessary, but it's the one scene I can remember most clearly, just the wording use made it stand out. It just isn't what a psychological suspense needs. So, After All I've Done wasn't my favorite thriller-ish read of the year, but I think it could be for others. I would pass it along to friends.

    I found this to be a creative storyline. It's told from three different points of view which enriches the reader's experience as they get more information and different insights. The main character, Diana, has been in a car wreck and is suffering from a type of amnesia. They can't fully explain why she's missing certain parts of her memory. To complicate things, she also seems to lose time months later.. She's often disoriented and left feeling confused, afraid and alone. As if all of this isn't I found this to be a creative storyline.

To complicate things, she also seems to lose time months later.. She's often disoriented and left feeling confused, afraid and alone. As if all of this isn't bad enough, Diana can't really confide in the two people who should be there for her....Jonathan, her husband and Valerie, her best friend. These two are having an affair. Diana often finds herself spending most of her time with her mother-in-law, who can sometimes be overbearing. Diana has dreams and is confused about what really happened on the night of her accident. There are several mysteries wrapped together and the pieces come to Diana slowly, a little at a time. When she finally remembers everything, it's possible she may wish she didn't. Some secrets really can destroy. I really did enjoy this book. The characters weren't exactly likable, but I was still able to connect with them. The whole situation was quite simply...a hot mess. I was definitely planning to give this book a solid 5 star rating until the end when some things were revealed in the plot line and I felt like one part was just a little too much. I appreciate an author's vision, but I felt like this "part of the book" could have been modified and still been shocking. Regardless, I would still recommend this book for those who enjoy domestic thrillers because it was twisty with a clever plot.. Thank you to NetGalley and Crooked Lane Books for this ARC. I voluntarily chose to review it and the opinions contained within are strictly my own. Don't forget! Come back to your Review on the pub date, 10 Nov 2020, to post to these retailers.

    This was a solid thriller!!! It kept me engaged and I couldn't turn the pages quick enough! I had been searching for this book since it was released and finally found it on Hoopla. Diana is recovering from an accident, one she can't remember and she can't remember anything. Her life is nothing like she remembers but she remembers her best friend is sleeping with her husband. I always love multiple POV stories and this one was it! It was told between present and past flashbacks between Val & Dian This was a solid thriller!!!

I wasn't sure who to root for in this story which made it even better. Overall, this was a solid thriller that I'd recommend to anyone who enjoys psychological thrillers.

    I have mixed feelings about this book. It was so well written and done that I had to read it in one sitting on one hand. But on the other side, I feel like some parts of the story were so predictable that I wanted to stop at all. I can’t really say that I loved or got close to any of the characters but the author managed to mix different personalities so well that everything mixes up perfectly in a way. What I didn’t expect was the ending and that final twist. I think only for that alone, it’s w I have mixed feelings about this book.
