First Chapter Review: More Than Memories by Kristen James

I downloaded this romantic suspense novel when it was free for Kindle. Romantic suspense is turning out to be one of my favorite genres; probably because I enjoy mysteries and thrillers so much.

BLURB:  Can she love him if she can't remember him? Molly Anderson returns "home" to a town she doesn't remember, hoping it will spark a memory. She runs into Trent Williams, a Ridge City police detective, and something else definitely sparks.

He wants to know why she left town, with her parents, but without a word to anyone. She doesn't remember that life. She can only tell him she knew her parents briefly before they died . . . or were murdered, she's not sure. She hopes regaining her memory will help answer that question.

Trent has his own secrets, but they have a mystery to solve. As they work together and Molly meets their old friends, she realizes their relationship went deeper than memories. In fact, she grew up in Ridge City, even though her parents had said they lived there just a few years. How could she have forgotten her lifelong friend and love? Can she love him again if she doesn't remember him? There's also the possibility that she did something awful -- and maybe that's why she's afraid to remember her old life.

Molly knows she wants him now, but the truth might destroy their love.

COVER: Great. It's romantic and sexy. The woman seems a bit vulnerable and the man protective. A perfect fit.

FIRST CHAPTER: Eager to recover her lost memory, Molly Anderson travels to Ridge City. She soon meets Trent Williams, who knew her when she lived there with her parents. Though she can't remember him--or anything else about her life in Ridge City--she feels an attraction to him and wonders if they were more than just friends. As Trent fills in some of the details of her life, Molly is surprised how much contradicts what her parents told her.

KEEP READING:  Definitely. James drops the reader right into the thick of things by starting off with Molly's drive into Ridge City. The suspense continues as she meets Trent for the first time and he agrees to help her try to recover her memory. James pulled me in with this story right away. The information Trent provides to Molly about her sudden disappearance creates a desire in the reader to continue. Though the foundation of what might have happened to Molly and her parents is only laid in this first chapter, there is enough to entice the reader. I'm eager to see how this story unfolds.
