Series: Wrangler’s Corner #7 – Love Inspired Suspense
Title: Holiday Amnesia
Author: Lynette Eason
Publisher: Harlequin, HQN Books / Mills & Boon

This is a fantastic page turner that had me enthralled from the explosive start to the very end. Robin Hardy is a scientist who witnesses a colleague at her University being murdered. She runs but an explosion as she does so results in her forgetting everything that has happened in the last six months – which includes starting work at the University. She’s unsure just who she should trust but agrees to go with another professor, Toby Potter, when he tries to shelter her from those still seeking to kill her. . . . They have a history but she can’t remember just what, but she feels safe with him most of the time. As they go on the run to escape those trying to silence her this is an action packed story, full of suspense, snipers, double crossing, secrets and Robin’s slowly returning memory. Will Toby manage to keep her safe until she can identify the murderers and reveal just what she witness? Will she remember why she was so angry with Toby – and if she does, will she still trust him to keep her safe?
It is part of a series but works well as a standalone. It has well developed characters, is a riveting read with a well thought out plot that is full of twists and turns to keep you guessing and turning the pages. Toby is conflicted in just what he should reveal to Robin because he is worried about how she’ll respond to the knowledge. The attraction between them is always there but so is their reticence to act upon it – he knows why but she’s forgotten. Although it is set around the festive season, Christmas doesn’t play a major role in the story until the end so it can easily be read at any time of year. As physical danger lurks around every corner, this is a lovely suspense filled read that I have no hesitation in highly recommending.
I requested and was given a copy of this book, via NetGalley. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.
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.
