With no memory, who can she trust?
A deadly Christmas in Wrangler’s Corner
Robin Hardy survived an explosion in her university lab—but her memories are gone.
With danger lurking behind every Christmas tree, she needs shelter from the attackers she can’t identify.
She’ll trust fellow professor Toby Potter to safely hide her away.
But when his secrets come between them, the truth could mean the difference between life and death this holiday season.
Non-stop, vehement, and fierce action, constant danger, and deadly consequences kept me on the edge throughout the story. The web of mystery is a muddled mess, the clues are few and far in-between, the law enforcement is scraping their resources to keep Robin alive, to let her heal so her memory would return, and then to bring some light into the chaotic, lethal case in their hands.
The story is hard to put down once you start it, the clueless atmosphere, the deadly peril, the tension between Robin and Toby, are all aspects that kept my interest high.
Even though the story has the main focus on the intense suspense, the growing romance between Robin and Toby was believable, because of their previous status as close friends. Even though there was tension caused by the revealed secrets and lies, it was palpable how much they cared for each other, despite the fact that Robin could not remember him or their friendship prior to the explosion. The struggle and growth they both go through, the guilt from the past, the forgiveness, and redemption is as evident as their growing attraction and need to protect each other.
The explosive crescendo towards the end, the reveal of the bad guys, and their motives hits hard, fast, and deep bringing some surprises despite the hints given throughout the tale.
I enjoyed this fastpaced story and the ferocious action and suspense. It is entertaining and engrossing, it is sweet and touching, and it's edgy. The characters from the previous stories in the series are present in many of the scenes, and at times I felt a bit overwhelmed with the number of people marching through the pages while the hunt for the culprits was at its most intense.
If you love stories that deliver heart-stoppingly thrilling suspense and clean, sweet romance, where a family is at the center of the tale, and faith in God is assumed notion, if not much talked about, you are going to enjoy the Holiday Amnesia, as well as the other intensely entertaining books of the Wrangler's Corner series.
