REMEMBER Kindle Edition
Now there’s only one gift Gracie wants for Christmas, and the only man who can bring it is not Santa.
"Remember" makes a wonderful Christmas story. It embodies the Christmas Spirit in the faith the characters try to hold onto, the hope that the each character keeps within their hearts, and the love that is just waiting for the characters to see. - Jessica L.Quiethouse Editing
First of all, the writing. Everything is really well-built and developed and there is nothing that set me off. I loved the setting and even the story which the book tells. I haven't come across something like this before so Remember impressed me especially since it's so short but it managed to do so much. - Yuli Atta
REMEMBER has it all: a Christmas atmosphere that will warm your heart and a romance that will turn up the heat! - Jennifer T.
A short novella, Remember by Joan Carney is a quickly read addition to the genre of holiday romances,written in a style meant to please the young at heart. Gracie, a twenty-something single woman, suffers the decidedly contemporary accident of falling into a mall fountain because she is mindlessly texting on her phone, where she promptly drowns. Not completely, however, because Santa Claus saves her life while his elf is calling 911. When Gracie begins to recover in the hospital, she has no coherent memory left, no recollections, not even of her name, and especially not of the manly apparition who comes seductively to haunt her in her new condition, nor for the dreamlike spectre of another who conjures up within her only the vaporous sense of physical unease. The firsts uffuses her with warm, romantic feelings; the other manages to instill in her only the nervous remembrance of proximate fear. Jack and Todd:youngish men seen through the youngish eyes of a youngish woman.
Narrated with the alacrity of a short story and the humor of a tall tale told rapidly to friends, Remember will be remembered by the appreciative reader for the velocity of its movement and the quickness of its read. As Gracie finds her rapid way back to self-recollection and her involvement with men both good and bad, a climax meant to satisfy one's need for delayed gratification leads the observer, after some necessary twists and turns, to a satisfactory conclusion. - Joel Dennstedt, Reviewer, Readers' Favorite

At the time of her accident, Gracie was between relationships. She’d just split from Todd, an abusive boyfriend, and had begun dating Jack, a college instructor at a school she was attending. Gracie is more mature than Jack’s other students, having delayed her entry into college several years. She was to join Jack and a handful of his students on a field trip to Mexico, but her accident caused her to miss the flight. Jack is concerned and disappointed, but figures she must have a good reason for being a no-show.
Gracie is able to sort through her clouded memory to envision Jack, remember his name, and to know she cared for him, but she’s not able to assemble much detail. Similarly, she knows her relationship with Todd is over, but she’s not sure why and how. Days later, Gracie returns to the scene of her accident to rebuild her memory. Gradually, pieces fall into place. Suspense mounts when Jack returns from Mexico to find Todd and Gracie together.
The novella-length tale contains all the elements of a full-length novel—a captivating plot, realistic characters, plus twists and turns along the way. “Remember” is an entertaining read, and a perfect length for a rainy Sunday afternoon.
Maybe July isn’t the best time of the year to read a Christmas romance, but that’s exactly what I did and it’s a book I enjoyed immensely.
Many earlier reviews have been ‘spoilers,’ laying out much of the plot in detail. I won’t follow that path; instead, I prefer to speak of the author’s excellent abilities to tell the story. Her character portrayal is excellent, all are very believable. Her dialog is also credible and realistic.
At first, I wasn’t sure about her choice to tell the story in the first person through her three main characters. Actually, it was a good decision and brought a very interesting dimension to the book.
All in all, it’s a heartwarming story and I recommend it to anyone seeking an enjoyable quick read. Even in July.
Remember is a really fun, quick read that has left me super excited for the Christmas festivities to begin. The premise is interesting, as you don’t normally associate memory loss with the joys of Christmas! But who doesn’t love a story involving mistaken identity, comical errors and, of course, a little bit of romance. Considering this is only a novella, the author did a really good job of creating a solid plot with some well-developed characters. By alternating the POV in each chapter, we were able to acquire a lot of information and knowledge about the story as we saw it from three different character’s view. I loved reading from Gracie’s POV, especially when she thought she had gained a memory back that turned out not to be real! Her and Jack’s good characters were balanced well with the mean Todd and bitchy Victoria, so there was plenty to get stuck into in a short space of time.
Overall, this is a lovely little story. It deals with comedy, romance and even a little sadness, all of which contributes brilliantly to the plot. If you’re looking for a quick Christmas read to get you into the holiday mood, I would definitely recommend Remember. Thanks to the author for bringing a little Christmas joy into my day!
I liked Jack who was a complete husband material unlike Todd, a Casanova. But if you ask me who I would prefer then my unabated answer would be Todd. I don’t know but there was something that was quite appealing about his personality. I don’t know if it was a tinge of alpha male dominance or his bitter-love attitude towards his girlfriend.
At some point, I even wanted Gracie choosing Lucas. I somehow couldn’t very well imagine Jack and Gracie together. That said, I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book and would highly recommend it, especially, if you’re looking for cozy and delightful Christmassy Love Story.

Remember is an engaging page turner with well written (and very ditzy in the case of the heroine) characters who behave in a believable way with the occasional touch of humour. After all, who hasn't tried to get into a house through the dogflap when you've lost your keys?
The hero is persistent but respects the confused heroine's space even though its eating him up inside, so a genuinely nice guy, but not a walkover.
And I loved the full on, take charge best friend. Just the sort of person you need in your life when things start to come unravelled.
Well worth a read, no matter what time of year it is.
