The Black Sheep’s Redemption by Lynette Eason
Fitzgerald Bay Series Book 5
Dr. Charles Fitzgerald is having a rough patch in his life. His nanny was murdered, he is a suspect, his business has slowed to a crawl because of the accusations and he can’t find help with his two year old twins as no one wants to work for him. Has God completely abandoned him?

Demi Taylor, well if that’s even her name, she was badly beaten and lost her memory. No one knows her, no one claimed her. She chose to come to Fit

From the first few pages I was hooked on The Black Sheep's Redemption and could not put it down. I was eager to learn more about Demi and about the person stalking her.

Sadly I did have a couple issues with Demi for someone suffering from amnesia she seemed well put together a good deal of the time and seemed to know herself pretty well which I found a bit odd. Despite that I liked Demi even though she played the card of wanting the police or Charles to protect her. Considering she was attacked

Unfortunately, this installment didn't grab me-grab me like its predecessors:/ The main reason why is because, unlike the other books, none of the previous/future characters-couples are integrated in the way I experienced it in the other books... Like, they're all there, but it really just seemed to me that almost all of the action involved just Demi and Charles. Also, at family gatherings, I noticed immediately that Nick Delfino wasn't mentioned at all (just thought that was weird).

Maybe I'm j

The Fitzgerald Bay series is a good one! Lynette Eason's books are always good, and I knew this one would be just as good as her others that I have read in the past. This is book #5 in this series and the Fitzgerald family is either in the police force or the fire department. The Black Sheep's Redemption is about Charles Fitzgerald, the town's doctor and only member of the family who is NOT a policeman/fireman. I cannot wait to read book #6 which will end the series and we will finally find out ...more

I really enjoyed this book, but there were parts that bored me that I just skipped over. I really liked the end and more clues into who killed Olivia. I'm super excited for next month when we (hopefully) find out who really did it! A few secrets come out in this one that surprised me! I LOVE surprises! I thought it was a pretty good book, but you definitely want to read this series from the beginning!

The Black Sheep's Redemption

Another great book in the Fitzgerald Bay mini-series. Charles Fitzgerald is in desperate need of a nanny for his two year old twins but he is also the prime suspect, according to some of the town's residents, in the murder of his previous nanny. When amnesia victim, Demi, shows up in town needing a job, she begins working as Charles' new nanny, but then the messages start about not belonging. Are the messages meant for Demi or Charles?

While Demi's amnesia was a unique twist, this series feels a bit repetitive with people being stalked by semi-crazy people who think they know they've found "the one" - even if the other person doesn't agree. However, Charles' paranoia makes this one a bit more believable than the previous "bad seed" stories.

Someone continues to stalk them but is it someone who is trying to avenge the slayed employee or someone who doesn't like the new nanny? A who done it till the end.

Average mystery although it reinforces my resolve to never live in Fitzgerald Bay! :-)

As #5 of this six book series, the underlying mystery is beginning to wrap up. (Ridiculous title!)

A good story plot. But, some of the language skills of a 2 year old is unbeliveable which actually threw me enough I stopped reading and had to backtrack to stay in the story.

I enjoyed the story, and thought both levels of tension and twists & turns were good, but after reading it I still have no clue what the title means or how it relates to the story.

Story had issues but I enjoyed reading the book. Too many Fitzgeralds and all with multiple issues. Demi is too trusting for someone with amnesia. But, I like how the author wove the story together.
