I was given this book in exchange for a honest review from Lovers of the Paranormal. I really enjoyed this book, I thought that the main character was quite feisty and quite realistic. Unlike most fictional abuse survivors, her pain did not immediately vanish upon the arrival of 'hot male foil'. The setting was extremely interesting, an alternate take on Victorian England with real psychics. I enjoyed the setting, plot and the characters were quite well drawn, if a little forgettable. I understand that this is the second trilogy surrounding these characters, while it is not necessary to read the first trilogy to understand the second, I will probably do so as I feel that certain events need more clarification. My only real issue came with my copy. It may be down to the conversion of the file, but at least once a chapter, words were replaced by symbols. I could make sense of the word it was supposed to be, but it was annoying. This could have been a problem with my kobo or conversion, but I bring this issue up in case it wasn't.

I was given this story by "Lovers of the Paranormal" on Goodreads for an honest review. This was an interesting story line. It made me want to read all the stories before it and left me looking forward to the stories after it. I believe that the story era was perfectly placed in order to achieve credibility. I love the strong temperament of the female lead, and how she is able to stand up for herself in a time when it was still a mans world. The story does run a little on the slow side but still leaves plenty of twists.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review through the goodreads group Lovers of Paranormal. I rate this book 3.5 stars. The Memory Keeper was set in the year 1889 and followed the main character Charity Evans. The story was rooted in history with a touch of the paranormal. Which made this book completely irresistible! C.J. Archer is a very talented writer I was completely submerged in her story. I definitely went out of my comfort zone with reading The Memory Keeper. I have always stayed away from historical fiction but C.J. Archer has made a believer out of me! There was such an air of romance in her writing. Everything was so beautifully composed and well thought out. Even the language that the characters used was accurate. I now find myself calling people "toffs"! The only regret I have with reading The Memory Keeper was that I did not read the first freak house series beforehand. Some say that this is not a necessity but in my honest opinion it is. There is numerous references to the first series, so in certain parts of the book I felt very lost and confused. I completely urge you to read The Memory Keeper!

I bought this after I couldn't put down the 3 books in the first Freak House Series. They were excellent as well. I would certainly recommend reading the first Freak House trilogy before embarking on this series. I like the authot's style of writing and it kept me wanting more.
