Brannon has watched his sisters friend Hannah for ten years always believing she was perhaps too young for him and besides he doesn't do relationships . A frantically charged night between them doesn't change much and Brannon loses that which could be the most precious thing in his world, Hannah. Then the unthinkable happens as Hannah is injured, in a coma and pronounced pregnant! O boy does reality come crashing down on Brannon and he is determined to put right that which he did wrong.
Hannah wakes not knowing who she is or what happened but the gorgeous hunk claiming to be her baby's father does seem very familiar . Brannon is sweet and at times it's like he is courting Hannah but her lack of memory is causing all kinds of problems . The night Hannah got injured a woman was murdered and it's possible Hannah might have seen something but if that's true then there's a killer out there who might just strike again!
I quickly caught up with how this story was playing out and the murdered woman was clearly not the nicest person in town and had more enemies than spots on a Dalmatian! It's quite a slow start and the budding relationship just didn't grab my attention. I did immediately like Hannah as even when in the hospital her inner thoughts are anything but pedantic, she isn't a pushover by any means . Brannon hmm, he is finally stepping up but this couple have to overcome his previous behaviour which won't happen unless either he admits he was a cretin and a coward or Hannah remembers.
What I did like ( although I had to pay attention) was the mysterious killer stalking the town in plain sight. I thought the author did a good job of making him a part of the everyday town folks and yet almost invisible hiding his true agenda. There's clearly a connection to the McKay family and the history of their family is discussed giving this reader all kinds of possibilities to ponder.
It would be remiss of me not to mention that there are quite a few supporting characters all vying for the readers attention . The author clearly enjoys muddying the waters and making her readers get their thinking caps on ! Yes there's lots going on and I strongly suspect who might have a starring role in the next book but for now it's all about Brannon and Hannah.
I was gifted a copy via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review
Hannah’s accident happens in the beginning of the book and ends up in coma for a week before waking up with a big chunk of amnesia. She remembers Brannon and everyone in her life, but not the fact of what led her to take a night run.
After having the scare of his life thinking Hannah is gone, he won’t be letting her slip through his fingers when he gets a second chance. Too bad he can’t kept up the charade when Hannah starts to remember everything, especially how Brannon and her relationship ended.
Will he be able to convince her that they made a mistake or will the killer strike again making sure Hannah is six feet under?
The story started off alright, but the further along it went with the whole murder, witness and amnesia got me off track of the actual storyline it’s self and by the time that I came near the end of the story there wasn’t a clear conclusion of who the murderer was. However, I did enjoyed Brannon’s side of trying to mend his relationship and the guilt he felt when Hannah got hurt.
Even though I didn’t like some of the way some of the story was written, I still felt she had a strong hold on Brannon and Hannah’s relationship and some of the dialogue. I also wished that I had read the first McKay book so that I had more of an insight of what happened.
