Goodreads:   I wake in a bed, with a stranger leaning over me. She asks my name and I realize I don’t know what it is. I don’t know who I am or why I’m here…

I’m grateful to the police who found me on the remote stretch of highway, covered in blood, with crimson flowers in my hair. To the doctors, too, who brought me back from the brink of death.

But I see the suspicion in their eyes.

They don’t believe me when I say I don’t remember who I am. They are unsure if I can be trusted.

Am I the innocent victim? Or guilty of a terrible crime?

No one has reported me missing or come looking for me. But today, a bouquet of blood-red roses has been delivered to my room.

Am I in danger? Or is someone trying to help me?

Searching for anything in this town that might seem familiar, I’m cornered by a woman with wild eyes who calls me I name I don’t know. She tells me my brother is in danger and only I can save him.

But how do I know if I can trust her, if I can’t even trust myself?

Kritters Thoughts:  A great book where a woman wakes up without knowing how she ended up in the hospital and has no idea of her past, present or her future.  After breaking out of the hotel, she finds the perfect job on a secluded property and slowly gets memories that help her realize what happened to her and what she wants her future to look like.  

I loved the way the author inserted her memories into the story, so the reader gets to know about what brought this women to her present life and the clues were perfectly sprinkled throughout the book.  The pacing was perfection, which kept me on the edge of my seat and flipping from page to page or chapter to chapter as this book had 60 chapters in it!  

I am always excited to look up an author after I finish a book and find out there is a backlist and I want to jump into Kelly Heard's backlist to see how they line up with this one.  

While I did enjoy the book from beginning to end, I am not sure if the title works for me - a minor complaint, but I would have come up with something a little different.  This didn't impact my reading, just an after thought when I finished.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
