Lindsey Presley certainly can't imagine why anyone would want her dead-though she knows she wouldn't be alive today if not for the local cop who saved her from two murder attempts. Deputy Jeff Gage has worked difficult cases, but with only Lindsey's fractured memories of a broken past to guide him, this is by far his most challenging. For Lindsey, fleeing the town she has come to call home is unthinkable. Separately, they are vulnerable, but together, Jeff and Lindsey just may stand a chance of catching a ruthless killer.

Customer Reviews for Memory of Murder
Review 1 for Memory of Murder
Date:May 24, 2013
Memory of Murder took me on a wild ride--literally from the first scene when Lindsay is kidnapped and shoved in the back of a car. Who is trying to kill her? The secrets seem to be locked in Lindsay's childhood memories. Can Deputy Jeff Gage help her discover the answers in time to save her life? I admired this spunky heroine who worked so hard to accomplish her goals, and refused to let go of the dreams even when it puts her life--and those she loves--at risk. Memory of Murder is a fantastic read.
I'm an escapist reader. When I find a book that I enjoyed ~ for whatever reason ~ I look forward to leaving a review. This book has made it to the top of my list. Love Inspired isn't a genre I pick up and read very often. Memory of Murder beats every one of the few I've read to a bloody pulp. With one hand tied behind its back.
Ever read a book that is packed with dull spots? Whether it's a muddy middle, too much description, not enough description, time jumping, head jumping, "I love him but I shouldn't", "I think I love her, and she's so sexy", Gah! These are the parts that grate on my nerves. Terribly. This book didn't have any of those parts. Memory of Murder was satisfying from the start to the very end in every way.
Out of the gate, there was suspense that opened a plethora of questions. What the heck did he do that for? Why is she so important? What is the significance of...and the list goes on. And it doesn't stop until you've almost reached the end.
If you like books that open with a bang and never become boring, this is for you.
Memory of Murder gets straight to the suspense when Lindsey is kidnapped and the story begins to unfold. As she rides in the GTO with her hands tied behind her back and at her ankles she sees a few visions that she can’t quite place, but she knows she will escape this. She will break free from her kidnapper when she helps him go off the road and crash.
Deputy Jeff Gage was left for dead at the restaurant that Lindsey owns, and all he can think about is how he has failed Lindsey. So, then the suspenseful novel goes into high gear with love in the air the whole time.
Who is trying to kill Lindsey is the real question. Will they succeed or will Jeff and Lindsey is able to find out who is trying to hurt her before it is too late? The killer is not who you think it is and the only way to find out the truth is to read the entire novel. The suspense was killing me; I couldn’t stop turning the pages.
Ramano Richards has a wonderful way of writing and keeping the suspense high throughout. Memory of Murder has a riveting spiral that will keep you wanting more.
Memories from her abusive childhood stay deeply buried. Lindsey remembers only fragments. However, someone wants her dead and keeps trying to kill her. Fortunately for Lindsay, Deputy Gage remains determined to protect her.
Violence abounds right up to the conclusion. Although the book is small, the adventure is large.
Thank you to Bonnie at Christian Fiction Blog Alliance and Love Inspired Suspense for my copy.
The one thing that Deputy Jeff Gage didn't want to happen, has happened. He has failed at what he was hired to do and now must face the consequences of his actions. While assigned to escort Lindsey Presley, a restaurant owner on her night deposits to the bank, he is brutally attacked and Lindsey is kidnapped. When he regains consciousness, he hears someone standing over him handcuffing him with his own handcuffs and telling him that Lindsey will be dead before he can get to his feet. He reminds Jeff that Sheriff Taylor will fire him by the time they get through with him. They will be watching and waiting for the next chance to make him fail. Those are the last words he hears before he feels electricity shooting through his body once again.
Had it not been for Lindsey's quick reaction, she knows without a doubt she would be dead. The one thing she understood about being kidnapped is that if she didn't act, when she arrived at the destination he had planned on taking her to, she would be dead anyway. Even as great as the risk was that she might end up dead anyway, she waited for just the right moment and kicked the driver in the head with the force of both of her feet resulting in the car she was traveling in, to crash into the guardrail. The last thing she remembers before losing consciousness is a man telling her that they were not finished with her and they are around ever corner.
Now she and Jeff must work together to piece together the clues to figure out just who wants Lindsey dead and for what reason. She can't think of any reason why someone would want to kill her. She is just attempting to start over by opening her own restaurant and wants to make sure the last thing she gets involved with is a man who wants a relationship with her. Nope she has thick walls in place to ensure that doesn't happen. Yet Jeff Gage can't help himself but fall in love with Lindsey as he has gotten to know her over these last few months. If only he can convince her that is feelings are true and that love isn't such a bad thing. If only he can find a way to break down the walls before they both wind up dead.
