About the Book
The Charleston earthquake has left destruction like nothing Doctor Andrew Warwick has ever seen. On a desperate mission to find the lady who owns his heart, he frantically searches through the rubble. He finds her injured and lifeless. After she regains consciousness, the doctor’s hopes are quickly dashed as he realizes she doesn’t remember him. Things only get worse when he discovers she believes she’s still engaged to the abusive scoundrel, Lloyd Pratt. Now Drew is on a race with the wedding clock to either help her remember or win her heart again before she marries the wrong man.
Waking in a makeshift hospital, Olivia Macqueen finds herself recovering from a head injury. With amnesia stealing a year of her memories, she has trouble discerning between lies and truth. When her memories start returning in bits and pieces, she must keep up the charade of amnesia until she can find out the truth behind the embezzlement of her family’s business while evading the danger lurking around her.
My Two Cents
One of the best books I have read. Ever. Intrigue, love, faith. This book has it all. It drew me in from the beginning. I began reading and read for two hours straight because I could not put the book down. I craved to see what happened!
The writing made me feel I was right there with the characters watching what happened. This was the first time I read anything by Costello, but it will not be my last. I love her writing and I rank her up there with my favorite authors.
This book takes place around the great Charleston earthquake. It was very obvious that Costello did her research while writing this book. Shattered Memories brought to light what the people of Charleston suffered as well as the courage of the doctors who treated the patients. The characters were well developed having breadth and depth. The plot line was fast paced and unfolded well.
Shattered Memories was a joy to read. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars. This book is only $3.99; A steal for such a great book. Pick this book up. You will not be disappointed!
Thank you to Celebrate Lit and Debbie Lynne Costello for giving me this book in exchange for a review. No monetary compensation was received and all views are my own.
