Review and Giveaway of "Shattered Memories"

Shattered Memories Release

by Debbie Lynn Costello

29090253

The Charleston earthquake has left destruction like nothing Doctor Andrew Warwick has ever seen. On a desperate mission to find the lady who owns his heart, he frantically searches through the rubble, where he finds her injured and lifeless. After she regains consciousness, the doctor’s hopes are quickly dashed as he realizes she doesn’t remember him. Things only get worse when he discovers she believes she’s still engaged to the abusive scoundrel, Lloyd Pratt. Now Drew is on a race with the wedding clock to either help her remember or win her heart again before she marries the wrong man. 

Waking in a makeshift hospital, Olivia Macqueen finds herself recovering from a head injury. With amnesia stealing a year of her memories, she has trouble discerning between lies and truth. When her memories start returning in bits and pieces, she must keep up the charade of amnesia until she can find out the truth behind the embezzlement of her family’s business while evading the danger lurking around her.

MY REVIEW:  Debbie Lynn Costello has written a beautiful work of historical fiction. It feels like I was really there with the characters experiencing the earthquake. Olivia captured my heart and had me longing to make everything right for her as her world was turned upside down. This book kept me on the edge of my seat and I can hardly wait to read the next book in the series. 
I rate this book 5 stars and highly recommend it to readers.

  8. I've never personally been involved in a natural disaster. My father was a helicopter pilot in the National Guard. He rescued many people in flooded areas of Iowa and Minnesota, when I was growing up. There were some very scary situations. I was glad I was never involved.

    1. Thanks for sharing that, Kay. Natural disasters can be so dangerous for the people who work to rescue those in distress. God bless your dad for his sacrifice to risk his life to save others.

    Congratulations on your book Debbie Lynne Costello!

    A few years ago we had a mild earthquake. My neighbor said she saw my house actually move...I felt it move, but thank God there was no damage or anyone hurt.
