LOST RODEO MEMORIES
With a stalker in the shadows...she needs a protector at her side.
After Melanie Graham awakens in the woods injured and with no memory of what happened, she quickly learns someone wants her dead. Now she must rely on deputy sheriff Luke Baxter to protect her. But while there's a spark between Melanie and the handsome veteran, they can't afford a distraction...because if Luke doesn't stop the mystery assailant soon, it may be too late.
Phew -- that opening scene left me as disoriented as Melanie! Love how events came into focus for me at the same time they did for her. I swear I felt just as dizzy and nauseous. And my sore noggin! I adore being mercilessly pummeled right along with the heroine! :-)
This is an amnesia story with a bit of a different twist in that Melanie doesn't lose all her memory, just about two weeks worth. I had a friend who suffered the same kind of amnesia after a traumatic event and the author realistically developed the full gamut of emotions -- frustrations, fear, anxiety, anger. It was like I was living through it all over again as I tried to support Melanie in her struggle to remember.
And then there's the kind and protective deputy sheriff who is working her case but isn't sure that she's completely innocent. He wrestles with his own kind of frustration as he tries to figure out what happened to Melanie...especially when repeated attacks make it clear her life is in danger. And it doesn't help that he's attracted to her. I do so love a reluctant hero.
Luke appreciates Melanie's fighting spirit but I absolutely loved that sometimes she indulged in a well-deserved meltdown. Because, really, under the same circumstances, wouldn't we all kind of lose it on occasion? So relatable! Oh -- and I also love that she actually feels battered when she is and she follows doctor's orders and indulges in recovery time, because, hellloooo, real heroines feel pain too!
A slow burn suspense that sizzles with a creepy stalkerish vibe and the sweet promise of romance.
