More than once, my husband has asked me how I can stand not listening to music while I’m doing something. Music is significant to him and he listens to it continually.
The funny thing (to me) is that when he asks, I often have to stop and listen to realize I don’t have music playing. I seem to always have a song playing in my mind, usually a worship song though I have been known to have a random song I haven’t heard in decades pop into my head and refuse to leave as well. And if I’m not singing in my head, I’m humming.
So, yeah, music is important to me, too…

She was framed! Or was she?
If only she could remember…
Border patrol agent Jocelyn Walker has no memory of how she turned up unconscious with a cache of drugs—or why a gang is dead set on killing her. With evidence stacking up against her, Joss takes refuge with driven DEA agent Dylan Murphy, who guards—and suspects—her. But will finally trusting each other lead them into a trap they’ll never escape?
I would like to thank Tanya Stowe for giving me this copy of the book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.
Waking up from her coma, the first thing Joss was aware of was someone singing a hymn. While she couldn’t even remember her name, she did recognize the melody and knew it was a hymn.
Amnesia is something that fascinates and confuses me. The idea that memories of people and events could be gone and yet the knowledge of other things can remain is so strange. And then, something can trigger the memories to return. Or not? Hmm.
I loved Dylan’s habit of singing hymns at random times and the way his faith was such a natural part of who he was. Though he had memories that haunted him and drove him in his work with the DEA, his faith was strong and influenced everything he did.
From the intense action as a gang attempted to silence Joss permanently, to the fight to regain her memories, Fatal Memories was a great story. I loved the strong faith element and the way Joss, despite being unable to remember her favorite food, remembered her relationship with the Lord and how she learned to put her trust fully in Him.
If you are a fan of romantic suspense, I highly recommend Fatal Memories.
