Molly Anderson returns “home” to a town she doesn't remember, hoping it will spark a memory. She meets Trent Williams, a Ridge City police detective, and something else definitely sparks. Not only does he know her, Trent takes on her case and promises to do everything he can to solve it. 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 her relationship with Trent 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? Has he really been looking for her - waiting for her - for the last four years? 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 Trent now, but the truth might destroy their love.

I thought the story jumped into the main part of the plot without a lot of explanation.
Karen Krause did a good job of distinguishing the male and female voices in her narration.
I thought of the plot of the books sounded interesting but the execution of the writing just didn't pull me into the story.

If a friend was looking for a light, distracting read, I would recommend it. But only in audiobook format. I think I would get a little bored without the narration.
The only thing I dislike about the romance genre in general is the lack of believability, so I suppose I would have liked the story to be a little more believable. However, when compared to other romance novels, it was pretty typical. And you don't read romance for realism! It was a fun distraction!
Karen's narration was perfect in that it supported the story and didn't distract from it. I was pulled into the lives of Molly and Trent, and it was easy to forget that it was only one person reading all of the characters. There was no confusion as she switched between voices, and it was very realistic (or as realistic as a female reading a male character can be!).
I don't know about being moved, but I will say that I particularly liked the mystery component of the story. It made the romance less cheesy and more important.
Overall, it was an ok story. Listening to it in audiobook form allowed me to just escape into the fantasy world for a bit. It was a fun distraction!
