RUNNING TO YOU by Robin Patchen, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney


Amnesia in Shadow Cove (The Wright Heroes of Maine Book 1)

"Sam Wright liked being alone. He'd built an empire alone, and he wouldn't apologize for that."

With one ring of the doorbell Samuel Wright's carefully constructed solitary life morphed into a reality that he never imagined . . . Eliza was in his house, in his arms, and obviously in deep, deep trouble. Oddly enough, she had no recollection of the five year span since their relationship had come to a screeching halt; the amnesia was as real as the bumps and bruises covering her body while crumpled up in her hand was Sam's business card, the only thing she carried.

Little by little the broken pieces of Eliza's memory begin to emerge, making their conversations tense and awkward, reminding Sam of all that he had lost, and softening his heart to the idea of second chances. Unfortunately, what little information Eliza does remember is so bizarre that it barely seems possible . . . until it does . . . bringing Sam and Eliza to a "this is it" precipice . . do they really believe that "He is the God of the impossible."?

"When she needed help, she ran to you."

Having read a number of stories featuring an hero or heroine with memory loss, this one felt extremely credible in the way that the author disclosed small amounts of information, not necessarily chronologically, or even the most needful, thus allowing the breakthrough to come hard and fast when it did. And believe me when I say that it did! An edge-of-your-seat, nail-biting, hold-on-to-your-hat (or in this case, ear piece), I-forgive-you finish!

From a
USA Today bestselling author...

Sam never understood why Eliza left him five years ago, ghosting him without explanation. He’s avoided romance ever since, focusing on building his business. Money might not keep him warm at night, but it can sure buy a lot of blankets.

Then Eliza shows up on his doorstep and throws herself into his arms. She can’t explain her bruises or the head injury that’s left her with no memories of the past five years, including their breakup. No matter how good it feels to hold her, though, there’s no way he’s getting sucked into romance again.

He’ll deliver Eliza to her mother, and that will be that. But instead of finding her mom, they’re met by two attackers and barely escape alive. Despite the danger to his life and his heart, he can’t leave Eliza to fend for herself.

Together, they embark on a journey to reconstruct her past while evading the men chasing her. As Sam and Eliza close in on the truth, their romance reignites, but her secret threatens to destroy them both.

Prepare to be enthralled by this gripping story of amnesia, a second chance at love, and a secret baby.
Running to You is an edge-of-your-seat Christian romantic suspense set in Maine that will keep you reading all night long.
