Fractured Memory

GIVEAWAY

REDWOOD, JORDYN
FRACTURED MEMORY

Shrouded past...

United States marshal Eli Cayne saved Julia Galloway's life once...and he's prepared to do it again. But his task would be easier if she could remember him -- or the murderer who almost put her in an early grave and seems to be hunting her once more. To protect Julia from the latest threat against her life, Eli has to consider the possibility that he put an innocent man in jail. Julia has no memories of the serial killer called the Hangman, though, and no reason to trust Eli. But with the killer getting closer, she must work with Eli to confront her past -- and the feelings growing between them.

My Review:

This cleverly crafted suspense is riveting! Seriously, I could not put it down. The weeds in my garden are cheering over their reprieve since I spent my gardening time reading instead. This is Jordyn Redwood's debut Love Inspired Suspense novel and it surely won't be her last. The dynamic opening scene fired up my imagination and I just couldn't wait to get to the heart of the suspense...and the romance.

An amnesia story can be a tricky thing -- easy to feel trite, riddled with clich├ęs. Thankfully that isn't the case in Fractured Memory (and perfect title tie-in, by the way!) Redwood does a marvellous job of incorporating Julia's amnesia into the plot. She might be missing key pieces of memory that make her vulnerable but that doesn't mean she's weak. In fact her experiences along with her faith make her one plucky heroine. And Eli finds that very appealing ...and infuriating at times. :-) Great romantical dynamics as these two draw closer while dodging threats at every turn. Love the fact that Eli has memories to fall back on while Julia can't remember him at all. Brings more tension to both the romance and the suspense.

A clever and exciting story that's sure to enthrall romantic suspense readers.

    1. She's wonderful, Becky. She's published one other series, a bit edgier than a Love Inspired Suspense...bordering on thriller, I'd say. Good luck!

  7. My husband indulges my shameful reading compulsion! He shakes his head when I read instead of doing laundry and has often been known to throw a load in the washer so I don't feel too guilty. Perfect Husband Award! Thanks Kav!

  10. I just love the LIS books! I haven't read any of Jordyn's books yet but I have enjoyed reading her blog. I would love to read this book, if nothing else that dramatic cover begs to be opened and read.

    Blessings!

  13. I love that you took a chance on a debut LI author. I'm not a big risk taker, so it's nice to see a positive review by someone I trust. Although, it looks like she's proven herself with non-LI books. :) Also, amnesia stories can be fun. tlhcoupon(at)hotmail(dot)com

  14. Ohhh, a debut LIS author, nice!!! Love seeing new writers step out in faith to publish their "babies" :-) Amnesia stories are a rarity and this sounds like something I wouldn't soon "forget"...lol!
