More Than Memories by Kristen James
Imagine waking up and not even knowing who the people are in your hospital room. They say they are your parents, but you can't remember them...
Ms. James gave me a copy of her ebook for review (thank you). It has been published and you can get a copy on Amazon now.
Molly can remember nothing of her past. She finds it very frustrating. Her best friend is a nurse from the hospital, and Karen thinks the fact that she has not recovered from her head injury may be Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and not just related to the head injury. She feels that Molly's mind is blocking a bad memory from the past. Molly senses that and is concerned about what she might not want to remember...
Ms. James words flow across the page and catch your interest before you're past the first two pages. Having no memory of your life before frightens me. Especially when Molly finally finds the town in Oregon that used to be her home and finds out that she and her parents just disappeared one day. No one knew where they had gone.
Why would they have done that? Why didn't they tell her anything about the past? Why did they lie to her about what they did say? And why does the local cop feel so much like an old friend?
The author does a very good job of showing Molly's hesitation and Trent's (the cop) worry about how much to share how soon.
This is a good read. It has an usual plot with a nice romantic interest. It's a nice light read that will work well for entertainment while you sit in front of your fire and have a hot chocolate. Just don't choke on your chocolate as the story gets exciting.
