Fractured Memory by Jordyn Redwood

**** 4 stars

Mixed Feelings...

A knock on the door by US Marshall Eli Cayne turns Julia Galloway's world back into the chaos she's been trying to escape. The Hangman is hunting her down, and despite Eli and his crew's best efforts, Julia's life isn't worth more than a plugged nickel.

All this would be bad enough, but Julia has faced the Hangman before, and won...sort of... She survived, but cannot remember the perp's face,whom she definitely saw. Nor can she remember why Eli seems to be so familiar in her life.

Fractured Memory by Jordan Redwood is definitely suspenseful and tense. Still,there were too many times I felt like the author had given obvious clues as to the murderer's identity,yet refused to let her characters do a natural follow-up. The writing was great, the plot line was great, but the author refused to let go of the puppet strings and let the characters choose their own destiny.

I would challenge others to read the book and decide for yourself- is it merely great, or is it one step beyond, outstanding?

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and BookFun. The opinions are solely my own.
