And if so, does she want her old life back?
“A gripping read populated by likable characters. Peresta draws us into a colorful detailed world and makes us care what happens to the people living in it. We root for Olivia as she struggles to regain her memory, her bearings, and the identity she lost long before her injury. Excellent!”
- Susan Crawford, Internationally bestselling author of The Pocket Wife and The Other Widow.

I liked this book. It is on the lighter side of the mystery suspense spectrum. I would place it in the middle of cozy mystery and psychological thriller. So, this book would be a good one for readers who like mystery books without all the gore.
This story started out really good. Instantly, I was drawn into it and could not stop reading. That is not to say that I did not like this book but after about a third of the way into this story; I found my interest waver a little and go down slightly.
However, I did like Olivia and Hunter. Hunter is the detective in charge to solve the case. There was a bit of a romance forming between these two but it was not a prominent part of the story. Which I liked as I did not feel like this story needed the romantic aspect. While, I wanted to like this book better I would read the next book.
