Overview

Julia Keller's world shattered the night her beloved husband, Jack, was gunned down on her ranch. Now, two long and lonely years later, a mesmerizing stranger with Jack's face appeared on her doorstep, minus a memory. So the only way to recover the truth was to join forces with the rugged, reticent man who was either her little boy's father—or a mysterious impostor. This tough yet tender amnesiac roused churning emotions—and smoldering passions—in Julia that left her aching for answers. However, a cold-blooded killer was bound and determined to keep this case unsolved. And in a race against time to prevent the perpetrator from striking again, a deadly showdown would pit good against evil…and "husband" against wife!

For a first novel, this book is worse than most. If an author is writing about guns and police, that author should do at least basic research. For example, a shotgun and a rifle are not the same weapon but according to Ms Blake a shotgun can become a rifle simply by changing words. All other guns are referred to as 'guns' with no indication as to type even when the speaker is someone telling how much he loved his gun. The writer seems to have very little idea how the police, DEA and FBI work. There is very little detail to give a sense of place. The cheap El Paso motel room could have been a box with a bed based on the lack of description. The dialogue is stilted, disjointed and frequently doesn't seem to advance the story. The villian that police have sought for years is an incomptent not a mastermind. The characters are poorly delineated. The denouement is chaotic and makes no sense. A lot of information is thrown in that is either not needed or should have been given elsewhere in the story. Poorly plotted, with a number of major flaws including the fact that the heroine's husband had died without anyone in the family demanding to see him. Normally when a loved one dies unexpectedly people want a chance to say goodbye. Alltogether a very poor piece of writing.
