"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
