Book Description

Molly Anderson returns "home" to a town she doesn't remember, hoping it will spark a memory. She meets Trent Williams, a Ridge City police detective, and something else definitely sparks. Not only does he know her, Trent takes on her case and promises to do everything he can to solve it.

He wants to know why she left town, with her parents, but without a word to anyone. She doesn't remember that life. She can only tell him she knew her parents briefly before they died . . . or were murdered, she's not sure. She hopes regaining her memory will help answer that question.

Trent has his own secrets, but they have a mystery to solve. Molly knows she wants Trent now, but the truth might destroy their love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended August 23, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoy a mystery romance that has more to the mystery besides, "Will they or won't they hook up?" type setting. To me if a book is labeled `mystery romance' then the mystery should be something other than will the leading characters become a couple because we all know that in the end 99% of the time the leading couples do hook up and live happily ever after so how is that considered a mystery?

Or the mystery's storyline of the book seems very familiar with just one or two parts changed. Or - yes another or - the mystery of the plot seems to be shoved in the back of the story while the romance is the main focus. There should be some kind of equilibrium as to where both the romance and mystery are equal partners in the book.

In More Than Memories, the mystery isn't will they hook up but did they? Now that's refreshing and unique. Because of that, I fell in love with the story.

Molly and Trent, the main characters, were realistic, charming and very believable. They had values and beliefs with none of the inflated happily ever after in stories you often read.

Out of the two characters, I fell in love with Trent. He was without a doubt the main star of the book in my opinion although the story was Molly's. It was because of how Trent aided and cared for Molly that made him very unforgettable.

Yes, there was a romance between the two characters as Molly tried to uncover the truth to her past but the romance didn't take away from Molly's predicament and or the mystery of the book.

I highly recommend reading this romance.

On a side note, there were just a couple grammar errors, which didn't in my opinion take away from the plot/characters, but I felt I should at least mention them. I still loved the story and will probably re-read the book again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who am I? December 20, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read the short story from Kristen James called The Fairy and her Giant: A Fantasy Romance and enjoyed James' style of writing. More Than Memories was a sweet romance between two people who had grown up together, but had been separated by mysterious circumstances over four years ago. Molly could not remember her past and Trent had never given up hope of finding his soulmate again.

This was a very enjoyable book. I loved Molly's sweet personality and desire to find out what happened to her and I loved Trent's patience and love for Molly; it was so enviable. The story was well written with great pacing and interesting secondary characters. I am now a fan of Kristen James and will look for other stories written by her.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet story with a good amount of suspense! May 12, 2011
By Shannon
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had a hard time putting this book down. Sweet love story without the unrealistic love scenes that I dislike in most romance books. The author took the time for Molly and Trent to get to know each other (again). Trent was in a difficult position and you'll really feel for him. I enjoyed the suspense of the story behind Molly's memory loss. I didn't guess beforehand, which is always a plus.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet and not overly predictable December 19, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. Memory loss as a storyline can be done so predictably (or just poorly).

There were many aspects to this book that I liked, but here's my favorite: although this was Molly's story, Trent really stole the show by being a steady and faithful constant in her life, helping her to unravel the mystery of her forgotten years while not pushing for his own gain. His love for her was believable and sweet.

I found plenty of surprises along the way as the plot unfolded, and was left with a good feeling when the final pages were turned.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Romance March 19, 2011
By Kathryn
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was hesitant to buy this book, since it didn't have any reviews. I've never bought a book that didn't have a lot of really high/glowing reviews. But I'm a sucker for childhood romances and the amnesia storyline sounded really good. The romance was very sweet, and I really loved Trent. I'm sick of reading romances about "ladies men" and "bad boys", so he was very refreshing. He was a true gentleman.

I liked that they waited until later in the book to "make love." It wasn't graphic or steamy. It was sweet.

I thought that the mystery was pretty interesting, but I thought that it would have more of a climax than it did. There were also a few spelling/grammar errors. All in all, a good read. And a cute ending!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Start - End Needs Work September 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First, it takes talent to write an original plot and pull all the threads together, especially in a novella. The talent showed, until the ending. The amnesia was well handled. The beginning and middle had a nice flow. The characters felt like real people, even the side characters. Sadly, the end was rushed, with things happening unrealistically--too easily and too quickly to be believable. A couple glaring errors: 1) Sirens were used in one of the final scenes--the exact opposite of how that situation is handled. Other police procedures need accuracy checks, too. 2) A natural event occurs at the end...with effects that occur 6 to 13 WEEKS later. The book had the effects happening 4-5 DAYS later....literally impossible. It was so off pace it knocked the ending out of balance and into some confusion.

This is a book with great potential. A little more research and cleaning up the plot where it veered out of originality and into overused plot elements would complete this novella. Praise to this author for creating interest with plot and character rather than trying to grab readers with highly detailed sexual intimacy.
