Nicki moved to Cedar Key in hopes of escaping the past. An ex-fiance who might end up in jail, her mother murdered when she was a child, and nightmares from that murder all push her to start over. But when someone begins attacking Nicki, an old friend comes to her rescue. Tyler is recovering from injuries he received while in the military. He's staying with his brother and at loose ends. He doesn't really know where he wants to go in life. But helping Nicki find her attacker is a good start. The suspense in this story started with the very first page and didn't let up. I like some mystery as to who the "bad" person is and this author delivered. It was presented in a way that surprised me, but was totally believable. The romance between the two main characters was sweet. The author wove elements of faith throughout the story and provided a great testimony without coming across as preachy. And adding animals to any story is always a plus. I loved the dogs and how they fit into the plot. The book left me wanting more and I can't wait to read another story by this author. Definitely give this one a try if you enjoy suspense with a touch of romance and faith. I received a copy of this book. All thoughts expressed are my own.

Buried Memories is the first Love Inspired suspense novel I’ve read by Carol J. Post but it will not be my last. The suspense starts from the very first scene and it keeps a steady pace all the way through. Not a lot of time to relax – for the main characters or for the readers!! Someone has it out for Nicki and the attacks continue to escalate as the novel progresses. And the fact that they aren’t limited just to her keeps the tensions high! The romance between Tyler and Nicki adds a different kind of tension to the mix, the pleasing #smoochysmooch kind of tension. Their past adolescent friendship gives even more dimension to their current chemistry, but it’s the bond they share over the nightmares they lived through that really drew me to them – both as individual characters and as a couple. Bottom Line: Make sure you have enough time carved out to read Buried Memories before you start. Because once you do start reading, you won’t want to put it down until you’ve finished the whole thing. Romance, suspense, faith, and friendship all combine together with complex characters and a complex mystery to make this a can’t-miss read! Fans of Susan Sleeman, make sure you check out Carol Post too! (I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book)

Buried Memories kept me guessing all the way through! It was such a great suspense story! I stayed up late reading because I just had to find out how things ended and how everything was connected. The author did a good job of creating a very tense situation for the main character, Nicki. Things were constantly going wrong for her in so many ways in this novel. However, at the same time, she had found an old friend who was proving to be quite the protector. But he had his own problems that were haunting him. I really liked Nicki and Tyler. They were both characters who had been through so much. Their backstories were very interesting, yet painful to learn about. It made me want everything to work out for them even more, knowing what they both had dealt with in their lives. Buried Memories had everything I was looking for in a romantic suspense. There was plenty of danger, hidden secrets from the past, and complex characters who had great romantic chemistry between them. I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

I loved this book. The author has combined faith, romance and edge of the seat suspense with this one and written a book that had me pulled in from the first pages and kept me reading to see what was going to happen next. Following the relationship develop between Nicki and Tyler certainly kept the story interesting. I read the story in one setting, because after I started it I didn't want to put it down. I was given a copy of this book by the author, but a favorable review was not required. The opinions expressed are my own.

"Buried Memories" is a thoughtful, suspenseful read. I enjoyed the character development and story line, and the plot was wrapped up nicely by the end. I certainly didn't see it coming; the author did a great job of keeping me guessing until the end. I'll be interested to go back and re-read now that I know how it all wraps up, and see if I can spot clues earlier on. Certainly worth multiple reads. The author is a Christian, and her faith shines through in this book. It's not preachy but is definitely present; I appreciated that and felt comfortable reading it, knowing there would not be any language or sensual situations. I received a free copy of the book from the author; all opinions are my own.

Buried Memories by Carol Post really keeps you on your reader toes. From the moment we meet with Nicki Jackson trouble has already begun for her. Thankfully, her former high school best friend, Tyler Brant is helping out his brother next door and happens to be with Nicki when her very scary ordeal begins. This story was tense and even had me wanting to look over my shoulder for Nicki’s stalker who was very determined to ruin her life in any way that they could. And yes, we are witnesses to all of that hatred. This is the second book about combat PTSD I have read in a week and I am glad that authors are writing about our military heroes in such honest ways. Tyler, after recovering from a deadly mission, is still trying to escape the nightmares that stalk him. He is overjoyed though to be reconnected with Nicki, his very good friend but also his secret crush. There are a lot of things I liked about this novel; one is how Nicki’s new friends, especially her church friends stood by her side no matter what. I also liked that Nicki and Tyler already had a good foundation for their romance to stand on. Nicki certainly did not have an ideal childhood and I really felt for her in trying to find a place to fit in and call home. Tyler is just the kind of hero anyone would want on their side when some sinister person is out to dismantle your life piece by piece. The last three quarters of the book was a very thrilling and you just might want to find a place where you will absolutely not be disturbed while reading. I received a free copy of this book from the author. I was not required to give a positive review and all views expressed are my own.

About the Book: After her broken engagement, Nicki Jackson hoped her move to Cedar Key would give her a fresh start instead she quickly learns someone's out to destroy her. Are the attacks tied to her mother's recently reopened murder case or to the nightmares Nicki's beginning to suspect are actually hidden memories?

But when danger circles closer, is Nicki's traumatic past better left forgotten or are her memories the key to something far more sinister? My Review: Poor Nicki, she can be identified with almost immediately. All of us have skeletons in our closet especially when it comes to family. You never know what the person next you has endured or will and the same can be said for Nicki Jackson. Nicki has had to go through some things that many people her age have never been witness to but yet fate keeps throwing things at her and expecting her to bounce back almost immediately. Nicki's mother was murdered and the case has recently been reopened and as a result things start happening to Nicki. Why her? Then if that wasn't enough she starts experiencing nightmares which she is starting to believe may be connected in some way to her mother's murder. Thankfully. Tyler an old childhood friend has come to her rescue to help keep her safe. But soon the two of them may getting closer than they anticipated as their feelings grow this mystery seems to be getting closer to a resolution. The writing was brilliant. The plot line was fresh and exciting and it was a quick read. Would love to read more from this author! **Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author. All opinions are my own.

Stories like this one keep me on the edge of my seat and it's hard for me to even stop reading until I finish the book! Nicki has a broken engagement so she goes to Cedar Key to try to start fresh but her life is suddenly threatened and she can't understand why. There is no clue as to why somebody wants her killed. Someone is trying to take away everything and everyone that means anything to her....but why? Her mother was murdered when she was young and she was raised in foster care, separated from her sister, who she's always wondered what happened to, but she had a teenage friend named Tyler and she's stunned to see him one day come to her rescue when her house is vandalized. So begins a traumatizing experience for Nicki that lasts for awhile and she can't figure out who wants to hurt her this badly. This person even tries to hurt her dog! Tyler stays with her all the way and help her figure things out, especially since he is staying next door with his brother. The action is non-stop and I loved the characters. I couldn't imagine going through everything Nicki went through. I would highly recommend this book! I has a surprise ending too!

STORY-LINE BURIED MEMORIES: Buried Memories by author Carol J. Post, grabs the reader and hangs on throughout the novel. With a story filled with tension, grief, suspense, and mystery, Post created a book worthy of the title mystery romance novel along with a clean and wholesome story-line. Nicki Jackson moved to Cedar Key after the broke up with her fiance. Although, hoping to find peace, Nicki finds old memories, hurts, and abuse are hard to forget. Detectives have reopened her mother's cold case murder, and Nicki finds herself having nightmares and dreams. Neighbor and friend from her past, Tyler Brant, adds another layer of stress to her already stressed out life. Tyler, a former soldier with PTSD, has his own problems and nightmares. Nicki has acquired a stalker bent on destroying her life and anyone close to her. Can Tyler protect Nicki? Who is trying to destroy Nicki and why? Can Tyler overcome his own nightmares and trauma to help Nicki find the answers needed. Grab a comfortable seat, my mystery romance novel review of Buried Memories follows. CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT: Primarily a suspense mystery, Post crafted a clean intense romance between two deeply hurting traumatized people. Post skillfully developed Tyler and Nicki characters; Tyler, a man scarred by war and Nicki, a woman scarred by life, come together in an intense suspense filled mystery. With a campaign to destroy her life in the most horrendous manner, Nicki's stalker is as evil as they come. Carol Post portrayed Nicki's vulnerability with skillful prose. Leaving the reader and Nicki questioning who could hold such hatred for her. In addition, the suspense and mystery, kept at high peak throughout the novel, grabbed me immediately. As a result, Post did not reveal the villain until the last moment, which keeps the reader glued to the pages. I was surprised by the identity of the villain and the reasons behind the campaign of hatred. The pace was smooth and steady without starts and stops, and the plots were intriguing as Post scripted her story-line. Although the story contains several plot lines, Post wove all the lines together to form a first- class mystery romance novel. Finally, in concluding my mystery romance novel review of Buried Memories, I found a solid well-written novel which held my attention from the first paragraphs to the last page. Also with believable characters, plenty of action, intriguing story-line, and just the right amount of romance, I found Buried Memories an enjoyable read. Post receives a big high-five for a clean read which did not need sex to sell the story. A good novel, which is well-written with intriguing plots, does not need sex or fluff to increase the page count; kudos Ms. Post, kudos. BURIED MEMORIES RECOMMENDATION: STARS 4 In addition, I would not hesitate to buy Buried Memories for my self or a friend. Suitable for young adults and adults, I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a solid, clean, well-written mystery and suspense romance. I look forward to Ms. Post's next book.
