If only she could remember...
Attacked and left for dead, "Julie Thomas" has amnesia, and doesn't know why anyone would want to hurt her. But when surveillance video of that night shows Julie holding a baby—a baby nowhere to be found—she panics. Is the child hers? Where is she now? With no answers and no place to go, Julie accepts Detective Zach Jones's offer to help her solve both mysteries. The handsome, loyal cop makes her feel safe. But someone is trying very hard to make sure her memories stay buried forever.
Witness Protection: Hiding in plain sight
I am loving this multi-authored series -- especially as new books are released each month. Each reads well as a standalone though, but there is an over arcing suspense thread that is woven through each book. Looking forward to finding out where that finally leads.
Loved the instant connection between Zach and Julie. As a homicide detective, Zach isn't used to having a living victim. His reaction -- and sense of responsibility -- towards Julie really builds up the romance. Love how he hovers on the border of professionalism a time or two. And his sense of protectiveness spun me into a twizzle more than once. :-)
Really liked the amnesia angle. It could have been cliché but Johnson uses the plot device really well. Julie's slow recovery and reactions to a world she doesn't remember is believable and plays a huge part in drawing out the suspense. It also leaves her vulnerable hence her attachment to Zach. My pulse speeds up just at the thought of some of their interactions!
A riveting romantic suspense sure to satisfy lovers of this genre.
