Goodreads Blurb: They say the future is uncertain…
But what happens if I have no past?
I don’t remember giving birth.
I don’t remember my name, my family, or where I come from.
I don’t remember…anything.
The only clue to my past rests in a bundle of blankets swaddled in my arms—a newborn baby girl.
With no leads and no family able to find me, the only way I can learn the truth is if I recover my lost memories myself. Fortunately, I have help.
Detective Shepard Novak, the gorgeous, blue-eyed police officer assigned to my case, is determined to uncover the mystery—and with it, my secrets. But as the days become weeks, the only memories I keep are the ones we’ve made together.
I shouldn’t feel the way I do for him, and I shouldn’t have let him get this close. But I can’t remember a life before him…and I’m not sure I want to search anymore.
Is it worth sacrificing my past for a chance at our future?
My Thoughts: Major props to Sosie Frost for putting an ingenious spin on a favorite trope of mine. I’ve read a slew of secret baby books, but never thought I’d come across a secret Mommy/Daddy book. Yep, you read that right! Secret Mommy!
Both main characters are very well written. Jane “Evie” Doe wakes up in the hospital with no memory after an unfortunate incident with an ice cream truck. She has no memory of her name, her family, nor the fact that she just gave birth to a baby girl. For the most part, I really enjoyed Evie’s character. She’s witty, self-deprecating, and sarcastic as hell. She’s obviously dealing with a very difficult situation, but she never loses her snark and sense of humor. Shepard Novak, the lead Detective on Evie’s case goes above and beyond the call of duty to assist with her memory and her newborn baby. Shepard is sweet, handsome, hard-working, and an all-around good guy.
The story is very well-written. Deja Vu is funny, entertaining, and quite emotional. I had a few minor issues with the OTT drama and an unbelievable situation that occurs, however I laughed through them all. I think it says a lot when you can still laugh at something you find completely unbelievable. Well done Ms. Frost!
Overall, this super cute romance is very engaging read. I highly recommend it to readers who enjoy a sarcastic heroine, a sweet hero, and super cute babies. This title is currently included with Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited membership.
I rate it:
Oh, I forgot to mention…that cover is EVERYTHING, but you can see that for yourself. 😀
