In California, the man standing on the road flashed a mirror at the woman driver, causing her to crash. He escaped, but left behind her passenger dead, her unconscious, and the driver of a truck near death.

Six weeks later, Marla Cahill remains in a coma at San Francisco┬┐s Bayview Hospital. Although comatose, she can hear her spouse Alex, her mother-in-law Eugenia, and her teenage daughter Cissy talk. She recognizes no one and is shocked to learn she has a newborn. Alex turns to his brother Nick, who fled his relatives for Oregon, to help with Marla and the failing family business. Nick reluctantly agrees though he hates seeing his former lover even if fifteen years have passed since Marla dropped him for Alex. As Marla regains consciousness, she begins to regain her memory, but none of it coincides with what her family believes. Worse yet, she is falling in love with Nick even as someone plans to finish the job that failed on the road.

IF ONLY SHE KNEW is a taut romantic thriller that proves how talented best-selling author Lisa Jackson is. The story line has been used many times before, but Ms. Jackson injects freshness through Marla┬┐s behavior. The climax is also obvious, but does not take away from a strong, suspense-laden tale starring an intriguing cast of characters.

    Excellent! Just when you think you know who did it, it's not! An absolutely must read. And the sequel - Almost Dead - is excellent too! You have to read that one if you read "If She Only Knew".

    Not very believable. A bit over the top

    Okay, this was too much for me. Actually more of a romance, rather than a mystery. While the main plot had possibilities, it was too unbelieveable as it progressed. It did not drive me to find another book by this author. And, likable characters?- Slim to none.

    Enjoyed this very much.

    This was my first Lisa Jackson book and I really liked it. The story line was unique and I liked how colorful the charactors were to me. Try it, you'll like it!

    Great book for the price

    If you like a good mystery mixed with a little romance then I highly recommend this book. The price is not bad either. I will be reading more from this author in the future!
