From the Back Cover
A brutal attack along the banks of the Seine in 1928 leaves a young Englishwoman close to death in a Paris hospital without a memory in her head. She soon comes up against a vengeful husband who accuses her of the theft of priceless art, the French gendarmes who have linked her to a murder on the Riviera, and a scorned lover who is trying to kill her. The husband, believing his wife's amnesia is faked, spirits her away to an ancient chateau in theFrench province of Champagne, where prehistoric dolmens and standing stones dot the fields and caves hewn out of limestone are used for more than storing wine.

It’s been a while since I’ve read a good gothic mystery/romance and Stolen Memories from Mary Miley is an intelligent, delightful, well-written, refreshing read. Eva/Claire proves herself to be of strong character, clever, resourceful, and the kind of person I want to spend time with. I thoroughly enjoyed it! Highly recommended.
The only complaint I had (I wish there were a 4.5 star rating) was that the main character's amnesia made her a bit difficult to identify with. The mystery of her identity kept me engaged, but it felt like it stretched a little long. Once she started to come firmly back into her identity, I had no issues with keeping engaged with her and really pulled for her as the book went on.
This should be a definite read if you are interested in the time period, France, or want to see a Gothic novel in a more modern story. The mystery unfolds at a good pace and touches on a number of interesting historical points. (Again, you will learn things!)
This begins Mary Miley's newest mystery set in the 1920s, only this time in France. With bits of her memory returning, the woman must put the pieces of her identity back together in time to figure out who is trying to kill her while reclaiming her life.
Told with vivid period details, and foreboding danger, Stolen Memories is a great read.
