Delivering to SandDanz who will deliver this one to AceofHearts at the 2006 BC Convention

From Publishers Weekly
There's enough melodrama in Michaels's newest offering (after No Place Like Home) to quench the thirst of soap opera devotees during a daytime drama drought, and the author's fans will likely lap up every word. At 17, Casey Edwards has experienced plenty of heartache and betrayal. Her mother, Evie, neglects her; her stepbrother, Ronnie, sexually abuses her; and her fianc‚ may leave her if she doesn't have sex with him. The day Casey finally fights back and stabs Ronnie in the leg, she miscarries his baby and comes to 10 years later in a mental hospital with no memory of her life before being admitted. Evie, now wealthy and married, greets Casey with little enthusiasm, as do the citizens of Sweetwater, Ga., and she can't help but wonder why. Slowly, she pieces together the lost details of her life with the help of Dr. Blake Hunter, a gorgeous family friend, but there are those who will do anything to keep her memories buried. Michaels's characterizations are far from subtle, and her plot consists of too many highs and lows with very little in between. However, her incisive descriptions of Southern life (and the mannerisms that separate the wealthy from the working masses) will impress, even if the conventional romance between Blake and Casey doesn't.

Fast pace, unfortunately a quick and simplistic fix to a big problem, (child abuse). I wish that every abused child would recover and meet the same fate as Casey.

Casey Edwards is released from the mental hospital and left to find her own way to her mother's home. Dr Blake Hunter, a handsome family friend, helps her while it looks like the other residents of Sweetwater just shun her.

Casey can not remember her past and tries to piece it together one step at a time. But there are others who wish her not to remember a thing. Casey is nearly run over. She tries to find court documents which either have disappeared or aren't there. Will Casey remember before she is killed or sent back to the hospital?

This book is really not quite a mystery as the opening chapter pretty much spells everything out. The plot is more about Casey's discoveries which are a mystery to her and her developing romance. It is also about what happens to the 'bag guys'.

I found it an easy read and hard to put down.
