A woman's mangled body found on the shoulder of a highway bypass near the small town of Astrick, Oklahoma, is mistakenly identified as 28-year-old Memory Smith. The town is aghast. Was Astrick's favorite daughter murdered or the victim of a grisly hit-and-run?
Baffled by the initial reports, Astrick's Assistant District Attorney and Memory's former bad-boy classmate, David (Mac) McCann, knows exactly where Memory is, and it's not lying dead beside a highway.
While investigating the wild rumor of her death, and several subsequent foiled assaults on Memory, Mac and Memory stumble onto clues from another long-ago questionable death. Can they be connected to the mysterious woman on the highway? Better yet, can Astrick's former hellion and the town's sainted miracle child find true love amid the chaos and confusion of a bumbling kidnapper and a town where everybody lies?
The plot was good. And it kept me interested but I almost gave up on it because of the narrator. First of all the inflections are all off. Sometimes it’s pretty monotonous and the female voices aren’t great. Also there was at least of couple of stumbles that I caught that should have been fixed in editing.
Story was good, easy to follow. Leaves the reader desiring to return to the story. Narrator was a struggle. In trying to do the female voices, they sound mentally impaired. The book was enjoyable. I’d definitely recommend this to a reader looking for a good read, with that element of desire.
I rarely write negative reviews, but in this case I had to. It’s like listening to a third grader learn to read; no flow, reading by line, incorrect pronunciation. I’m so distracted I can’t even listen to the story. Pass on this one.
