From Back of Book:
She Woke Up With No Memories...

She wakes up in a hsopital room...bruised...bloody...confused.  She knows her name is Gemma LaPorte--but that's all.  She doesn't remember smashing her car.  She doesn't remember anything from the last three days.  But a policeman, Deputy Will Tanninger, is waiting for answers and wants to know if she's responsible for a fatal hit-and-run...

But Remembering Her Past Could Kill her...

Hoping to restore her shattered memory, Gemma has no choice but to put her trust in Will.  But if it turns out she's guilty of murder, he has no choice but to arrest her.  Torn by her growing feelings for Will, and haunted by her shadowy past, Gemma is determined to learn the truth.  But, in this case, the darkest truths are unknowable--and the deadliest enemies are unseen...

My Review:
I love a good mystery/thriller.  This book did not disappoint.  The beginning of the the book leads you to believe one thing and then with all of the twists and turns you have to take a step back and say, "whoa, I didn't see that one coming".  This book tells the story of Gemma who wakes up in a hospital and is told that she is the suspect in a hit and run accident.  She seems to have some memories but nothing connects.  All the while she is being stalked by someone.  Enter the deputy, Will Tanninger, who wants to believe she is not guilty.  He finds himself drawn to her but yet is not willing to compromise his beliefs that if she's guilty she must be punished.  Throughout this book there is a thread of of the paranormal in the form of mind reading or future telling.  Gemma remembers vaguely being told she has the "gift" of seeing or feeling the future.  How all of this plays out is something the reader will need to find out on their own.  I definitely recommend this book to all mystery lovers.
