Review by: Bitten By Love Reviews on May 01, 2013 :
A sexy sweet tangle, this romantic suspense kept me guessing till the very end. I was rooting for Joey (NOT Josephine) to figure out a way untangle herself from the web of lies she had woven around Ash in order to protect him and her beloved sister Caro. The dynamic between the two just made my spine tingle. Way to go Maggie-another 5 heart read!


Joey has always had the extra little gift of premonition and suddenly she is seeing her beloved sister’s death along with a mysterious man whom she finds out is Ashville Coye star reporter. When Joey heard about Ash’s car accident that wiped out his memory she just couldn’t pass up the chance to insert herself into his life in hopes that she would be able to prevent his death and in turn her sisters. Her plan instantly goes awry, because little did she know that Ash’s supposed amnesia is a cover story he is using in hopes of luring the murderer to him. Well, that, and the fact that she is completely helpless to stop herself from falling in love with him.

Review by: Karla Bostic on Jan. 29, 2013 :
Ash is a slightly claustrophobic investigative reporter on the trail of a serial killer, who thinks his Ms. Right is Suzy Homemaker. As part of his investigation, he's pretending to have amnesia.

Joey is a Harley-riding psychic with a penchant for caves. As part of her investigation, she's pretending to be his wife. As

Neither can admit the truth, nor deny the passion that flares with every touch, and might just cost them their lives.

This 1994 Maggie Shayne Classic was her first serial killer story, (featuring the dreaded Syracuse Slasher) and one that holds up every bit as well today as it did when it was first released.

Be sure to check out the other books in the Maggie Shayne Classics Line: Miranda’s Viking, Dr. Duffy’s Close Encounter, Annie’s Hero, Fairytale and Forever Enchanted

I like Maggie Shayne and this book did not disappoint my view of her writing. It took me most of the book to figure out who the villain was and not all suspense books take me that long. If you like romance and mystery, this book will please you.

I love books that give you something more to look forward to than the central love story, like who was it all along...

Review by: Cindy Overton on Jan. 23, 2013 :
What a treat this book was.

Josephine (Joey) Bradshaw has visions and she's seen Ash Coye and her sister murdered by the Syracuse Slasher. When Ash ends up in the hospital with a concussion after a car accident Joey things he has amnesia based on what the paper said. She goes there with the purpose of pretending to be Ash's wife to make sure nothing happens to him so she can also prevent her sister death since he was to die right before her. What she doesn't know is Ash isnt suffering from amnesia it was just a ploy to try and make the person that cut his brake lines think he was backing off his story about the Syracuse Slasher.

Ash didn't know what to think when this strange woman just barges in and pretends to be his wife but his journalist instincts says she knows something about the Syracuse Slasher so he continues to pretend to have amnesia even when he leaves the hospital and she take him home to her place.

These two are on such opposite side of thinking when it comes to relationship - she's anti men and marriage and he wants a June Cleaver wife. Both are them are tainted by things there parents did to them.

There are a lot of secondary characters through out - Joey's sister and her kids which Ash become close to. Her brother in law who has been acting strange, Ash's boss at the paper and a female police officer that Ash one had a one nighter with. Everyone seems to think that Joey's the killer but as Ash gets to know her he realizes that just cant be true even though she still hasnt told him the truth.

Great suspense book that keeps you guessing right up till the end on who the killer is.

This is the perfect book for those that like mysteries with a bit of romance thrown in. I was a little sceptical at first about the whole fake amnesia/fake marriage thing but this book was so much more than that. Its not a on the edge of your seat type mystery but it will definately keep you guessing for quite awhile.....This is definately a book I would read again.
