I liked Geoffrey and especially that he was a little insecure because of his amazing brothers. I wish we hadn't known quite as much about the people from her past so that it could of been a little more mysterious whether she really loved her fiance. Knowing what you did about the fiance made the ending less suspenseful although there was still an interesting twist.
There were a couple of things that really bugged me although they weren't enough to make me stop reading they did pull me out of the story. The first being when Geoffrey hit August his air bags exploded but yet he jumped right back in the same vehicle and drove her to the hospital. The second one is how her fiance was able to find her, it was so unlikely to happen and such a coincidence that I had a hard time with it.
Overall, the suspense was pretty good although it could have been better. The romance was okay but I would like to have seen more from the characters on the relationship side. I also would have liked more interactions with his family members to flesh out the characters a bit more. The amnesia storyline was done well and believable.
Overall, the book was a little slow and didn't really pick up until towards the end. It was a likeable read but not one I would read again.
August got hit by a car as she walked along the highway looking for shelter from the storm. She could not remember her name or her past when she awoke in the hospital with a broken arm and a laceration to the head the next morning. She wore a peridot gemstone ring on her right hand and since she hated the thought of being called Jane Doe, she used the suggested name "August (last name) Unknown."
Geoffrey Barthlow is a sensitive widower who lost his wife to an automobile accident about 9 months ago. His low self-esteem is buoyed by August whom he has taken into his care, his home and eventually his heart. His family instantly likes and accepts August and think she is perfect for him. Geoffrey tries to keep his emotions under control because for all (amnesia plagued) August knows she could be married and already have a family of her own.
Through a series of scary, life-threatening attacks on her life, August (AKA Emily Atkinson) and Geoffrey learn exactly how far each is willing to go to protect the other, and how much they love each other.
I found the characters engaging and their relationship believable. I especially enjoyed Geoffrey's ability and desire to reach out for love again after being cheated on and hurt by his first wife and his brother.
Pamela Fryer does a great job of keeping the story moving and the reader guessing. August Unknown has a perfect blend of mystery, action, suspense, and romance.
Almost dead of cold, and not knowing who she is or why she is in the water, the heroine staggers out of the surf, through the sleet and into the path of a car. When she wakes in the hospital, all she knows is that she knows nothing.
This book is written with great skill and free of the numerous errors that plague many new offerings. That alone is a blessing not to be sneered at. The action begins immediately and holds the reader until the end because, by then, you just HAVE to know. Both protagonists are appealing and the character development is seamless and logical for both the main and secondary players in this tense, but ultimately satisfying book. You can almost taste the heroine's frustration as she tries to remember not just who she is, but to see through to the looming monster in the shadows that now inhabit her memory.
The relationship between the protagonists builds nicely as does the sexual tension. It is almost a clean romance with one sexual interlude just before the climax. Not a steamy book, but one in which the "whodunit" is the main attraction. If you like romantic suspense, this is the one. I think this is the best mystery I've read this year. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves a good read.
