First of all I have to say, I love the cover for this book as it perfectly fits the feel. You have a picture of a peaceful looking isolated cabin shattered by what glass would look like when a bullet punctures through it. Sets my heart to racing without even opening the pages! The inside it just as thrilling as the outside. Having an officer of the law come to your house and say to you that a hit has been ordered on your life, that stops the heart all together! Julia has no memory of who Eli is or how he was the one who saved her from dying at the hands of a serial killer named Hangman almost two years ago. There's obvious feelings between these two but they take backstage to the danger surrounding them. With each step they take forward, the killer is always two steps ahead. Can she trust Eli and his team when she almost dies in protective custody, more than once even? This one had me on pins and needles trying to figure out who's after Julia when the Hangman is supposedly on death row. I loved the medical angle and the amnesia ramping up the danger, it made for a breathless combo. Julia's strong faith shone through and seeped into every scene even when she was on the run. Eli, what can I say, was an almost perfect hero. Trying to hide his feelings under the facade of professionalism. The whole book had me guessing, oxygen deprived and my heart pounding. Wow, the end had me surprised and turning pages faster than a speeding bullet! Richly layered storyline, suspense to keep you on your toes, twists and turns galore, faith a a natural part and romance sizzling underneath makes for a fantastic read! Recommended for lovers of inspirational romantic suspense!

Julia Galloway doesn’t remember US marshal Eli Cayne. She doesn’t remember being rescued by Eli mere seconds away from death. She doesn’t remember the last time she felt truly safe. What she does remember is waking from a coma with a nasty scar around her neck and being told that someone out there had tried to kill her by hanging. When Eli Cayne shows up on her doorstep with a story that a “hit” has been put out on her, she can’t believe that danger is still stalking her – until the bullets start to fly. Eli, on the other hand, has no problem with his memory. He remembers discovering Julia moments from death and rescuing her. He remembers keeping tabs on her as she endured therapy, as she worked to get her nursing skills back and as she courageously stepped back into her career as a pediatric nurse. Half in love with her after the first rescue, he stays away since, as part of her protection team it’s inappropriate to get involved with her. When word comes down that a “hit package” is out with Julia as the target, Eli’s focus becomes keeping her alive. As the attempts on her life begin to stack up, can Eli and Julia continue to dodge death long enough to figure out exactly where the threat is coming from and, just as importantly, why there is a threat in the first place? As the killer invades even the “safe houses”, can they follow the clues to The Hangman’s identity? Once started, this book was tough to put down. I loved how dedicated to Julia’s safety Eli was. It was obvious from the beginning that he had some pretty strong feelings for her but instead of clouding his thinking they made him laser-focused on keeping her alive. It was also obvious that he wasn’t going to do anything about those feelings unless Julia made the first move. Her lack of memory placed a huge barrier between them but instead of forcing her memories, Eli simply did his job and made sure she was safe. Some of my favorite books have been from the Love Inspired Suspense line. The strong faith element and the equally strong suspense element make Fractured Memory a great choice for readers of Christian fiction. There is enough sweet, gentle romance to satisfy the romance reader and plenty of teeth-clenching suspense for the suspense reader. I definitely recommend this!

Fractured Memory by Jordyn Redwood is a fast paced action-packed thriller that grabs the reader's attention from the first page. The characters are believable and well-developed. This book held my interest from the beginning and I was sorry to see it end. I did feel as if there should be a prequel to explain some of the things in the book as parts of it made me feel as if I were missing important details that I should know to help me better understand the scene I was reading. Does that mean there's a prequel in the wings? I hope so! Having said that, I would give the book a 4 star review. I definitely look forward to reading more books by this author. I received a copy of this book from the author and The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

I love medical mysteries, don't you? Although this one really is more about romantic suspense than a mysterious malady. And I love Jordyn Redwood's writing technique. She puts more tension and twists into her books than you would think the front and back could successfully contain. This is Jordyn's first venture with Harlequin's Love Inspired, and they have welcomed her with enthusiastically open arms. This one begins with a woman (Julia Galloway) who has oxygen deprivation-induced amnesia and US Marshal (Eli Cayne) who had worked to keep her safe and healing after a near-fatal hanging. She doesn't remember him, but there's something about him that makes her feel safer. The hangman, or so the attacker has been labeled, is safely in prison, but someone has put out a hit on Julia. Why? Daily near-death experiences keep Eli and cohorts on their toes. They put her in a safe house--which is anything but safe. Each place they select results in another attack. Obviously, there's a leak of information from within. Danger escalates to both Julia and Eli. Buy the book now, and solve this puzzle before it's too late!

Fractured Memory is an exciting suspense story about RN, Julia Galloway who was saved from being hung. Julia's mind has blocked memories of the near hanging. U.S. Marshall Eli Cayne saved Julia's life and now is protecting her from new death threats. I enjoyed this book very much. The ending is very touching. I recommend Fractured memory to those who enjoy suspense. I won the book from a giveaway on Shannon Vannatter's blog

Jordyn Redwood has delivered another suspenseful story that her readers love. This mystery is filled with several twists, but eventually the evidence proves the truth. US Marshal Eli Cayne and Julia Galloway had been put together when he had saved her life and assisted her in her recovery a few years previous, but now she is in danger again. Unfortunately, she suffered a brain injury that caused her to lose some of her memory so she does not trust him. How will he be able to save her from the reappearing rapist/murderer? I enjoyed not only the twists and turns throughout the story, but how the author leads the reader to the conclusion of the case.

“Fractured Memory” is another thrilling suspense novel by Jordyn Redwood. This author has never failed to hook me with her novels. She continues to be one of my favorite inspirational suspense authors. This book is part of the “Love Inspired Suspense” collection. It is a very easy read. This story follows US marshall, Eli Cayne and Julia Galloway. Eli has already protected Julia one time, but now her life is in danger again. Eli thought he had already put the correct killer behind bars, but now he questions whether he put an innocent man behind bars since Julia’s life seems to be in danger again. Eli is working hard to find the right killer and at the same time, trying to protect Julia. This book has a twist and keep me hooked to the very end. It also has a little romance throughout.

Fractured Memory is a book that will grab your attention and not let go, if you enjoy action-packed, suspense filled with a little bit of romance thrown in adventures. Wonderfully written with characters that live out their faith in a natural way that isn’t forced. The author started the book in a way that grabbed me and didn’t let go until the last page… in fact, I still haven’t let go. I hope this isn’t a standalone book but instead I get to read more about Eli and Julia or the rest of the team. I can’t wait to read more from this author. She is definitely a favorite of mine. If you enjoy Dee Henderson’s books, you will enjoy Jordyn Redwood. "I was given the book by Book Fun (The Book Club Network) and here is my honest review."

A knock on the door by US Marshall Eli Cayne turns Julia Galloway's world back into the chaos she's been trying to escape. The Hangman is hunting her down, and despite Eli and his crew's best efforts, Julia's life isn't worth more than a plugged nickel. All this would be bad enough, but Julia has faced the Hangman before, and won...sort of... She survived, but cannot remember the perp's face,whom she definitely saw. Nor can she remember why Eli seems to be so familiar in her life. Fractured Memory by Jordan Redwood is definitely suspenseful and tense. Still,there were too many times I felt like the author had given obvious clues as to the murderer's identity,yet refused to let her characters do a natural follow-up. The writing was great, the plot line was great, but the author refused to let go of the puppet strings and let the characters choose their own destiny. I would challenge others to read the book and decide for yourself- is it merely great, or is it one step beyond, outstanding? I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and BookFun. The opinions are solely my own.

Wow! Redwood starts you with a BANG! The first chapter opens with our hero going to the heroine's door, to tell her she has to leave with him (he's a US Marshall) in protective custody because someone has put a hit on her life and bullets start immediately flying! It's a race around Colorado to keep her safe and find if the man in prison for trying to kill her had a partner that is now after her or if he is really guilty as charged. US Marshalls and FBI can hardly keep her safe as a murderer moves in. Wait 'til you find out "who done it"!!

This is the first book that I have read by this author, but it certainly won't be my last one The suspense starts from the first pages and kept me reading because I couldn't put it down after I started it. The book is a wonderful combination of intriguing characters, suspense and romance, and there were twists and turns to the story that kept me guessing and on the edge of my seat. I definitely will be reading more by this author.

FRACTURED MEMORY is not Ms. Redwood's debut novel as I initially thought, but she is a new to me author. She seems to have the Love Inspired Suspense formula down, and shots are fired on the second page! And let the race be on... When the safe house she is secreted off to is compromised soon after arrival, the ante is upped and interested is triggered. My suspicions were raised early on as to who the bad "guy" might be. Red herrings were planted to keep the reader guessing, but I'd figured it out, since I read enough of these to know the formula and how it works. It is rare for a LIS author to surprise me. What I didn't know was why. I have to be impressed by Ms. Redwood's medical knowledge, but her bio states she's a pediatric ER nurse by day. So medical mysteries are something she excels at. A great book by a new-to-me author.

When I heard that Jordyn Redwood had a new book coming out, I was very pleased because it had been three long years since her last book. I couldn't wait to read this new one! I enjoyed it very much. Great Christian suspense with a medical twist because Jordyn is a pediatric ER nurse. I love her medical blog and she's added some of her medical knowledge to this book also. She has created very believable characters and a culprit that no one would suspect! Now I look forward to her next. If you haven't read her other three books, Proof, Peril and Poison, you should. They are awesome! *I was given a copy of this book for review purposes. All opinions are my own.
