Four years ago, Julia Rousseau began her life as a resident of Silverhill, Colorado. Her existence before the accident is nothing more than a fuzzy blur in her mind.
Black ops operative, Ryder McClintock, comes home for the first time in years. His job takes him all over the world at a moment’s notice, which is fine for a man with no commitments.
Julia wants more than anything to reclaim her memory and finally be free of the nagging fear that haunts the corners of her mind. If not for her daughter, Shelby, she really thinks she would have lost her mind when she awoke in a strange town with no recollection of how she got there. Ryder is rendered speechless when he lays eyes on Julia, and is devastated when she has no recollection of him or their love for each other. He wants her to remember, but is terrified that in doing so, she will realize that he is not good enough for her or Shelby.
The drama and suspense are very much the highlight of this story, and they are dished out bit-by-bit, holding you enthralled right up until the end. Julia may feel slightly soap opera-ish, but she and Ryder have plenty of appeal to keep you interested. The storyline is fantastic, and it would be great to see Ryder's brothers get into the act in upcoming books. I especially like how Ms. Ericson takes you on the twistingly convoluted path of a killer.
