Hollie dreams of a house... a farmhouse in Pennsylvania. But she's never visited that state ... has she? She's had the dream since she was a young child. It finally stopped after a couple of years .. but now its recurring every night. Needless to say, her sleep is suffering.

Her friends talk her into seeing a hypnotist to see if that will stimulate her memories that she can't recall on her own. After one session, she gets a clue ... the number 1649. It takes a lot of research but she's n

Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) provided by the Author via NetGalley in exchange for an fair and honest review.

Wonderful mystery-suspense plot and a sweet, budding romance between two strangers who are thrown together to try and solve the mystery and end up with a whole lot more than they bargained for. I enjoyed the twists and turns in this mystery and just wished for more in the romance department.

Hollie Musgrave had mysterious dreams of a rural farmhouse as a child. Her parents told her she had ne

Ms. Miller has written a complex mystery that kept me turning the pages until the end. I enjoy Ms. Miller's romantic suspense books as the stories flow, the twists keep me guessing and the characters are fully developed so that I feel like I have grown to know them as the story flows to the conclusion.

Distant Memory is a fast paced romantic mystery that morphs into a suspense at the end. Very enjoyable read with two very likable main characters and great bunch of mature supporting secondary characters that bring some humor to the story.

Who would've thought that a dream could lead to all of this? I really liked the progression of the plot, and the way hunting down the origins of a dream led Hollie on such a crazy ride. I thought the characters were interesting, and I loved the old ladies Hollie was friends with. There were some twists and turns along the way to keep things interesting. At times I found the developing romance a little tedious, but I know it was important to the plot. Overall, I enjoyed it and will definitely try ...more

Thank you BookSirens for an ARC copy. I’m leaving this honest review voluntarily.

Distant Memory was a fast easy read. Well developed characters and mystery. This was an enjoyable read. Not my typical style of book but what a great break.

I debated between 4 or 5 stars and settled on five. If you enjoy clean romance and mystery. This is a great book for you. Definitely something you can take on the beach and finish quickly.

Distant Memory is a compelling book that had me hooked from the first page. The suspense gripped me immediately and kept me turning pages late into the night. The characters were well developed and realistically imperfect. They were very entertaining and believable. Their interactions seemed genuine and I found them to be entertaining, especially those involving Hollie's friends. As the plot progressed, it hinted at romance, adding another element to the story. There were also elements of danger ...more

Hollie Musgrave hadn’t had the dream since she was a little girl, but now it was back, disturbing her sleep and causing her to wonder about the house with the huge arched doors. Her mother had tried to pass off her childhood dreams as reincarnation, that maybe Hollie had lived there in a past life, so one of Hollie’s friends suggested hypnosis as a way of learning more. Hollie was able to see an address while under hypnosis, set about doing an internet search for the possibilities, and found a h ...more

This book had it all! A bit of action, some great suspense, a mystery to unravel, and a sweet romance all woven together with interesting characters and semi-snarky dialog.

Holli has had a recurring dream at various times in her life. It’s always the same and always leaves her sleepless. When she’s awake she doesn’t know where the house in her dream is but she’s determined to track it down hoping the dream will then let her go.

Hollie has a recurring dream of a house she can't remember ever going to. After locating it, she and Todd have an awkward meeting. He's intrigued by her story, and by her. There is a great deal of unfulfilled sexual tension as they work together to figure out what the house has to do with her.

Well written. Excellent suspense and keeps you wondering till the end (5 DOGS!!). Of course there is a happy ending. Great creation of characters and creating that yearning you have for someone you just met but want more with.

A romantic thriller about a woman who has a recurring dream since childhood about a farmhouse that she's not sure she has ever been to before. The danger and mystery follow her as she tries to unravel the cause of the dreams. Many secrets are revealed and plenty of action occurs.

Hollie's dream is back. In it, she approaches a farm house through a thick tunnel of trees. As she raises her hand to knock on the door, the dream ends and she wakes. This happens several times a night. She had this dream when she was a young girl and it eventually ended. Now it's back and her trio of elderly and rather comedic best friends convince her to work with a hypnotist. She finds the house from her dreams along with a rather reclusive man who purchased the house three years before. The ...more
