Oh my!!!! Each book I read from this author is more and more exciting. The first page drew me in and the action continued throughout the whole story. Great story. I received a complimentary copy of the book. No review was required.

Best. Book. Yet!!!

I could NOT put this one down!

Grace has amnesia stemming from a serious event that she (obviously!) has no memory of. Was it an accident or was it intentional? Was it due to a past career? Was she married or engaged? This as well as a hundred other questions are things she's been asking since waking up. This is the suspense filled journey that this phenomenal author takes us on!

I don't want to spoil the story for anyone because this one I definitely did not expect some of th

Okay, if you want cute romance then Jessica R. Patch will deliver. I've read many romance books by her and loved every one of them.
However, if you want a page-turner, drop-the-mouth suspense, and action, with a twist of mystery, then she is also the author for you!
I think out of all the suspense books Jessica Patch has written, this is my favorite! OH MY!
It is so full of intrigue and adventures, there really isn’t time to breathe!
I was so taken from the very first page to the last. I actually

Recovered Secrets ( Love Inspired )
By: Jessica R. Patch
Wow, what a story. The author surely knows how to grab your attention right at the start and hold on to you. This is a Love Inspired Suspense and I loved it. The story and the characters, both were well written and well developed. What if you were washed upon the Mississippi river banks and no one knew who you was? Grace, is the name they gave her, and she did not know who she was or where she was from. Someone is trying to kill her and she

'Don't worry about me, Grace. I'm a big boy and this ain't my first rodeo.'

Two years ago, Hollister Montgomery pulled a nearly dead woman out of a Mississippi riverbank. Her named her Grace Thackery and sat with her for six months while she was in a coma. Now, she lives and works in the small town of Cottonwood, and volunteers with him at his job as a SAR person. Life is good, except Grace can't remember anything at all about her life. Then something happens that propels them both into a dangero

With flooding, memory loss, and search and rescue, you’d think this book had plenty to keep you busy, wouldn’t you? But Jessica R. Patch kicks it into even higher gear with a heroine I will describe as a female Jason Bourne with a conscience.

Thanks to retrograde amnesia, Grace Thackery doesn’t remember anything before the last two years of her life. Her quiet life in little Cottonwood, Mississippi is upended when people start showing up trying to harm her. And she’s got some serious skills that

5 stars definitely for sure goes to this cool author. I'm now going to have to devour everything else she has written.
I loved this book from beginning to end and I couldn't put it down until it was finished! You should know me by now that is how I work.
I liked the setting this book takes place in! It allowed me to leave my house but in reality not really leaving it if that makes any sense. My hubby had to call my name twice before I actually heard him lol!!

Recovered Secrets is yet another exciting suspense by Jessica Patch that readers will want to finish in one sitting yet be disappointed that it has to end. Grace Thackery, the heroine was rescued at the point of death and has suffered from amnesia for nearly two years since. Suddenly it seems that someone wants her dead but she has no idea why. As bits and pieces of her memory begin to return, Grace also begins to exhibit some unique skills that have her and her friend Hollis wondering just who ...more

I could not put this book down, I had to but it was 4 in the morning by the time I got there. This books so stinking good. The author literally draws you in and keeps the pace of the book going from beginning to end. I loved how Grace was named Grace, because after everything she faced she still was given grace and loved by some many and God included. I loved Hollis he hands down was my favorite. The other thing I really liked is the way the author described what was happening I felt like I was ...more

I think Grace Thackery is my new favorite character from the Jessica Patch collection of books. Grace is a mystery even to herself since she had an accident and cannot remember her life before she met Hollis Montgomery. Hollis is the knight in shining armor. He finds her, rescues her and takes her under his wing while she works out the mystery in her life. I love Grace and the chemistry between her and Hollis. You will want to add this little mystery to your "to-be-read" list.

My review today is on the Love Inspired Suspense, Recovered Secrets. I really enjoy Jessica's work. This is an excellent example of her books. This story is well written, action packed and full of faith. This a great read and I know you are going to love it. I love the line where Grace tells Hollis,"I'm a ninja!"

Grace Thackery was found by the river two years ago. She was beaten and left for dead. She had been in a coma for six months. when she finally woke up she remembered nothing of her past.
I love the way the reader is introduced to Grace--in a very homey kitchen with cinnamon rolls after having learned what little she knows about herself. Don't let this lull you into settling down to a calm reading session. Things are going to change quickly! Recovered Secrets grabbed me and didn't let go until after I finished the story and a note from the author that's in the back of the book. I really meant to quit about halfway through and go to bed and finish it the next day. Technically, it ...more

There are three things that I know that I will find when I pick up one of the author' books.
1. Non stop suspense/action. I will be taken on a adventure that is filled with twists and turns.
2. A cute romance - sweet romance weaved into the suspense.
3. Biblical Reminder of God's love and redemption.
I feel like each book that I read by this author gets better and better. She always creates memorable, unique characters. Each of her storylines are action packed, filled with twists and turns and w

I really enjoyed this book for the most part. Grace is a strong, capable, kick butt heroine who doesn't need rescuing and can save herself. Can I just say HOW MUCH I LOVE THAT?! Can we have more of that in this line, please??? Strong women. We have been around forever and in 2019, it's more than ok to write about them! Hollis is a dreamy, sweet hero who appreciates all of Grace. The action was just right. The only thing I didn't care for (almost made this a 3 ⭐ but ultimately strong heroine and ...more

What a wonderful new read from Jessica Patch!

Hollister Montgomery and Grace Thackery’s story is riveting and thrilling! The action is non-stop as these two brave their way through danger after danger, trying to stay alive in a little town in Mississippi called Cottonwood.

Grace, who suffers from amnesia because of an earlier attempt on her life, is being hunted down again. Hollis, a Search and Rescue Agent ( who rescued her when she was left for dead), joins Grace, and fights with her and for her

This book is a quick read. There are many twists and turns in the story line, that keeps the reader turning the pages. Hollister Montgomery and Grace Thackery are very intriguing characters. He's an ex Navy seal. Grace is trying to figure out who she is, literally she has amnesia. Someone is trying to kill her, but she has no idea why. Will she survive, will she get her memory back, will she find someone to trust and love? Recovered Secrets holds the keys to Grace's answers. Thanks Jessica Patch ...more

Jessica has written what I believe is her best work in her 10th book for LIS. The story is about Grace who has amnesia. She has a new life now but slowly her old life starts to creep back in. As her old life and her new life meet with full force she must find a new normal. In the midst of running and fighting for her life with the man who saved her life.

Grace and Hollister are strongly written and carefully developed characters. The trauma that Grace experiences is so well written you feel the

Recovered Secrets by Jessica R. Patch is her newest Love Inspired Suspense story and is a total must read! From the very beginning the story pulls you in and keeps you captive until the very end.

If you enjoy suspenseful stories, especially those that keep you guessing the whole way through, then Recovered Secrets is the book for you!

I received a copy of this book from the publisher/author, but was not required to leave a review.

Recovered Secrets had me hooked from the first chapter. Talk about suspense! I was falling off the edge of my seat to see what was going to happen next. The entire book is a guessing game to figure out who, and what, Grace really is. A wonderfully written story of God’s Grace and forgiveness and a sweet romance with tons of nail biting suspense. I read it in just a couple hours. Fantastic read!

A kick-butt Heroine and a former Navy Seals Hero make for an exciting and action packed book. I could hardly catch my breath from sitting on the edge of my seat and biting my nails. Action, suspense, mystery and romance make me a happy reader.
*I was given a copy of this book by the author and publisher and this is my honest opinion.

What an awesome book!! This is the first book I've read by this author. I like how when you think you have figured out how the story is going to end up, you are proven wrong!!! Such great suspense and romance! Leaves you hanging for more. Can't wait to find other books by this author!!

Awesome read. Perhaps the best one yet by this author. Full of nonstop suspense, drama, and action...and a lot of surprises.

Hollister may be Patch's most likable character yet. Though the story was about Grace, he made the story...loved the joking and heroics

I am still out of breath from that read! Recovered Secrets is the newest novel by Jessica Patch. I could not put it down! I have loved her books since the beginning, but they just keep getting better and better. Grace was found in a small town in Mississippi with amnesia. She begins a new life there as she has no idea who she is, where she is from, or how she got there. The action starts on page one as some people from Grace's former life have found her. It's a race against time for Grace to fig ...more

Oh. My. Word. I love everything Jessica Patch has written, but this... This is a whole other level. Grace Thackeray doesn't remember a thing about her life before she woke up from a coma. When the memories start returning, all they do is confuse and concern her. And then the danger kicks into high gear, putting Grace's rescuer/friend Hollis Montgomery in the crossfire. Jessica always delivers an action-packed story, but this one? This one is next level. She kicks the doors off whatever you're ex ...more

Wow, what a great read! Love how Patch takes us on this suspense-filled ride from the first page to the last!
Loved getting to know Grace Thackery...well, I think the whole town in Mississippi loved getting to know Grace over the last couple years. She washed up on the riverbank and knew nothing of herself. Then there's Hollis...yeah, what a guy! He names Grace and helps her along her way recovering after he found her. A true friend for someone who didn't know her from Eve!
