Recommends it for: Jaqueline
4.5 stars. This had everything I love in category romance: love, heartache, secrets, forgiveness, all wrapped in a nice little package with an amnesia plot as the bow on top. There’s a wounded but wonderfully faithful hero, a wounded heroine, and a bit of a mystery, which is revealed in delicate bits, like peeling an onion. The very end brought tears to my eyes (though this is an area in which I’m pretty easy.)
Really liked this one. I love amnesia plots and this one is different in that she has only lost 2 years of her life. Very well done the way that little bits of her past were revealed at a time as she remembered them. It was pretty angsty at the end. About 2/3rds of the way through I was going "oh no, oh crap." Good, well developed characters, strong hero, solid plot.

Thanks Willaful for recommending it to me.

4.5 stars. I think this one was a little too sad and serious for me. I love angst, but I also like 100% resolution at the end. Not very deep of me, but these are category romance novels we're talking about. I also thought it was a little slow to get going. Still, a good read and I was definitely happy when the it was resolved.
Loved it - reviews below can give you an idea why....

Be warned...this one is a TEARJERKER!!
Nina had lost two years of her memory but she live in a beautiful island painting peacefully. But her peace was broken when a handsome man appeared in her door after a storm. He seemed to loose his memory too and she felt rlated to him.
Searching in his things, she discovered something about his past ad hers! They had met in the past. But Nina had a lot to thing to remembered about both, him and her because that mysterious man was her husband!!!

Artist heroine isolated herself in a small island town since she got there 9 months earlier b/c she can't remember the past 2 yrs of her life. She helps injured Hero whose head was hit by a tree & seemed to not remember his identity. She later becomes suspicious about his lost memory when she finds his credit cards. But Hero is intent on staying with her & questioning her about her previous life, which she appears content to not remember.

The heroine lost her memory and when the hero turned out he pretended to lose his memory as well, so he could get close to her. When the heroine finally got her memory back, she confronted the hero, only for the hero to find out she only got her partial memory back. When he full memory returned, she remembered being married to the hero and that they had a son together who was killed in a tragic accident. This time they cling and mourn together, it's their second chance!

It was quite a lovely book
A heartwrenching tale of a man fighting to win back his love after a tragic accident makes her flee and lose her memory.
An author I have tremendous respect for - Susan Napier. Some of her stories are so powerful, that I find myself thinking about the story and its characters, long after I've put it down.

The suspense in this story was very well built up. Till more than halfway, we are unaware that they are married. I found it bit unbelievable that the heroine was in so much of a denial that she didn't recognize or acknowledge the pregnancy stretch marks in her body!!! One other discordant note - the serpent in th

Quick read which maybe is why the characters seemed a little undeveloped. I did like how it seemed like Nina's amnesia was not that big a deal and gradually the truth is revealed to the reader at the same time it is to her. Also how her perception of Ryan alters.

I liked this one because the hero was never an asshole. From the time they first got together he loved the heroine and treated her right. They had a sad past, but the ending was the type to make everything better.

A strong story. More relationship-y than falling-in-love-y romance. And keep a tissue box near you.
