Publisher's Summary

"She's an eye-witness. But she doesn't know it...at least not yet."

A Mini Mystery.

After a Hollywood crime occurs in a small town, pressure sets in nationwide for answers. And detectives rely on their only lead: a teenage girl who saw the whole thing. The only obstacle is Dedra herself. Her Retrograde Amnesia* has locked her out of her own answers from her own memory. But with a medical remedy to unlock it all, detectives suffer the additional mystery of her parents refusing to give consent. And Dedra must play detective herself to find the real reason why.

With her hidden yearbook, and her tricky little sister, it’s an unfamiliar race down memory lane with lots of traffic, and shortcuts of insistence from sidekicks to pranksters to worse. But as justice becomes impatient, and family demands loyalty, Dedra faces a memorable dilemma: should she move past the past, explore it fully, or "remember to forget".

great fast paced mystery

I received this book for free for a honest review. This story was good and fast. I loved the bond between sisters. The author did a great job of keeping me interested and the story line together. The narrator did good work bringing the characters to life. you could feel their emotions. reccomend

Lot of story squeezed into a short duration

It was a really short listen (27 Mins). That left no time for character development - I think there were 6 characters that participated in conversations and another 4 that were referred to. I couldn't really connect with or fully understand any of the main characters. Also, behaviour of some of the characters including parents as well as doctor who was almost ready to perform a procedure without parental consent, was a bit fantastical.

May have been more satisfying if it was a bit longer with enough back story and character development.

Narrator was impressive at times with her ability to voice over different character. I did sped up to about 1.35 though as i felt narration was a bit on the slower side.

Wow! Loved this audiobook!

Just found this author and so glad I did. His writing reminds me so much of early Grisham novels. The characters are likable and believable. Looking forward to listening more of his work.

Believable

The storyline was great and easy to keep up with....enough twists and turns to keep you interested but not too many to confuse you. I would listen to more audiobooks from this author.

This is truly unbelievable.

No idea what this was about, really, although I enjoyed the synopsis, which had made it sound interesting. Sadly, the narration by Priscilla Broussard was dreadful, with squeaky little girlie voice unpleasant on the ears, and delivery both too slow and jerky, slightly improved by running playback at 1.25
And the story line sounded more like a disjointed movie script.
Mercifully short, around half an hour,I listened to the end in the expectation that all would be revealed. It wasn't.
I received this as a free download.
