It’s been nearly a decade since Elle Sloan last saw Luke Hutchins. Close to ten years since she broke up with him over a single phone call, providing him with little explanation. Since the end of their relationship, Elle has done everything she could do to move on, marrying, proceeding forward with her life, almost allowing herself to completely forget about Luke.

Almost.

Out of nowhere, Elle receives a phone call from Luke’s mother. Luke has been in a horrific car accident and, a month later, has just awoken from a coma. However, instead of celebrating, his family is stunned to learn that Luke is suffering from amnesia and only remembers his life as it was before his breakup with Elle. Not wanting to tell Luke that he and Elle aren’t together anymore for fear it may compromise his recovery, Elle is asked by Luke’s family to come to the hospital to see him. Their hope is that she will slowly be able to jog his memory and cushion the blow.

Guilt-ridden over how their relationship ended, Elle readily agrees, finding herself transported back in time with Luke to the life they once shared and the future they could have had together.

The early spring sun swiftly set on the horizon behind the splendor of the Allegheny Mountains, a welcome change from the relatively flat lands of southern Indiana, where a long drive was bound to put you to sleep. Seeing them in all their splendor, the remaining ghosts from my past came rushing back to haunt me, reminding me of the drives Luke and I used to take at my insistence. He’d grown up here, while I had only been in town long enough to attend—and eventually drop out of—Cogsworth University after two years. He’d chuckle to himself as I’d gazed awestruck at the emerald expanses towering around us as far as my eyes could see. Never condescending of my obviously sheltered life prior to arriving in Roanoke, he’d just smile whenever I would comment on how his growing up surrounded by such beauty must have been comparable to waking up in a fairy tale every morning.

And it was here in Roanoke where he was awaiting my arrival, completely unaware that his heart was destined to be broken by me once again.

Sara "Furlong" Burr was born and raised in Michigan and currently still lives there with her husband, two daughters, a high-strung Lab, and three judgmental cats. When she's not writing, Sara enjoys reading, camping, spending time with her family, and attempting to paint while consuming more amaretto sours than she cares to admit. She's also an advocate for melanoma awareness, having been diagnosed with stage 1b melanoma in 2017.

Can He Save Her – Escaping Memories by Amanda Siegrist @amanda_siegrist
Escaping Memories - Amanda Siegrist

 

The cover for Escaping Memories by Amanda Siegrist is simple, yet poignant.

I love that it says so much with so little and the author is the creator.

Escaping Memories (Lucky Town #1)

 

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

In the small town of Lucky, a young child of ten has been murdered and Sheriff Logan Caldwell will not take a badly needed vacation until it has been handled. Then, it’s off to his cabin in the woods. His place of tranquility. He needed some peace and quiet, some solitude. He walks in, only to find he is not alone.

 

There is a woman and she needs his help. She has no memories, amnesia. She doesn’t know how or why is she here, she just knows danger is out there and she’s not going anywhere.

 

Even with the characters fear coming through, Amanda Siegrist writes with humor and lightness.

 

The immediate hook is great, the story line predictable…but who is the bad guy? At 24%, have I met him yet? I don’t think so, and I do have my eyes wide open. It’s a very small town and I would think he is no stranger to the area. He took her, used and abused her, but somehow she managed to escape. In the back of my mind, a thought persists, will he get his hands on her again?

 

I love strong women in distress. There is a sweet innocence about her. She has been hurt, terrorized, a childlike woman who needs a protector to help her find her way back to herself. Her naivety and honesty comes through in Amanda Siegrist’s storytelling. Even though their relationship develops quickly, she makes it seem as if it is natural, easy, real, well you know, sort of real.

 

A subtle menace lurks in the background.

 

Logan is the man I would want to run into if I were in her situation. He is chivalrous. I find the word perfectly describes him. He will not hurt her or take advantage of her. He is patient, gentle, tender, loving, putting her first in all things.

 

The peripheral characters have important roles to play and their well developed personalities shine through.

 

Even though I tend to favor darker and grittier novels, Amanda Siegrist made it easy to get lost in Escaping Memories, with suspense and humor that kept me turning the pages. I didn’t always know where we were going, and I like that she kept me guessing. The characters were easy to relate to and drew me into their lives, wanting to know if everyone makes it out of this mess in a good way…except for the bad guy, of course. He needs his comeuppance.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Escaping Memories by Amanda Siegrist.

Do You Believe in Reincarnation – The Tempest Murders by P M Terrell @pmterrell
The Tempest Murders - P.M. Terrell

 

 

The Tempest Murders

 

Amazon  /  Audio  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

The girl of his dream walks into his life and turns his world upside down.

 

Sounds a bit cliche, but there is nothing cliche about P M Terrell’s ability to write a fantastic story in The Tempest Murders. She tweaks this suspense novel with touches of the paranormal…and maybe reincarnation?

 

Ryan had dreams of her ever since he could remember and now she walks into his life. He is more than haunted by his past. It’s as if he is reliving it.

 

I love his interaction with his sweet nieces and they love his cheesy rabbit dinner. It is touches like this that make her characters unforgettable. The twins immediately stole my heart. I could picture them in all their cuteness.

 

Man, oh man, this woman can write. There is a bigger mystery than mere murder and I eagerly anticipate her explanation. She is creeping me out, but the suspense and anticipation of what’s coming keeps me from putting the book down.

 

Category 5 Hurricane Irene is bearing down on them, but that is not the only storm brewing. Ryan struggles to keep the past from being repeated, but can he change Fate? What do you think?

 

I love the blend of serial killer, murder and mystery, with the paranormal and supernatural.
