Book Review - Fatal Recall


First book in the Murphy, North Carolina series

Amnesia stole her memory—
a killer wants her dead

When Paige Tatem loses her memory, she knows just two things: she has a target on her back, and police officer Tanner Brody is the only man she trusts to protect her. As they piece together her past, Tanner wonders what lies hidden in Paige’s mind. And as the truth begins to emerge, it becomes clear that a ruthless enemy wants certain secrets to stay buried


From medical secretary to court reporter to property manager to owner of a special events decorating company, Carol’s resume reads as if she doesn’t know what she wants to be when she grows up. But one thing that has remained constant through the years is her love for writing. She currently pens fun and fast-paced inspirational romance and romantic suspense stories. Her books have been nominated for a RITA® award and an RT Reviewers’ Choice Best Book Award.

Carol lives in sunshiny Central Florida with her husband, who is her own real-life hero, and writes her stories under the shade of the huge oaks in her yard. Besides writing, she works alongside her music minister husband singing and playing the piano. She enjoys sailing, hiking, camping—almost anything outdoors. Her two grown daughters and grandkids live too far away for her liking, so she now pours all that nurturing into taking care of a fat and sassy black cat and a highly spoiled dachshund


I have read other books by Carol Post and always love them. This book is no exception!

This book is action packed, fast paced and kept me wondering what would happen next. Paige is a strong character without being overly much. I liked that she wasn't afraid to ask for help when she needed it. I liked Tanner, too, as he felt a sense of duty but wasn't over-bearing. Their relationship was lovely in that it didn't move along too fast or too slow and seemed very real.

When Tanner finds Paige in the woods, she has been hurt and can't remember anything, including her name or what she's doing there. The story unfolds in a way that keeps your attention. In fact, I read this book in a short time because I just couldn't put it down! We have to go with Paige through her memory loss so we have no idea what's going to happen and that really added to the suspense for me, which I love!

I also thought how the author brought faith into the book was so perfect. She does it in a believable way and it's wonderful how she shows His redemptive work in Paige. Tanner is very much against God but as he watches Paige and how she lives out her faith, we see his heart soften. 

As someone who really enjoys a good mystery, this fit the bill perfectly. I was never sure what was really behind everything that was happening and there were some shocking revelations along the way. I highly recommend this book and I do hope you'll get a copy and read it for yourself. You'll enjoy it so much! I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
