This book started rather slowly, but got more interesting as the book went on. The main character becomes aware that something isn't quite "right" with her life, that there seems to be a shadow person behind who she sees. She's starting to remember things, and as she does so, she experiences physical pain and discomfort. She encounters a man that helps her discover the parts of herself that have been blocked, and helps her emerge from the shadows. ( )

This is the first book I've remember reading by Linda Howard and I will definitely be looking for more of her work. I found her characters well thought out and empathetic. Lizzie's struggles to understand how she knows things she doesn't remember are realistic and intriguing. You can't help but cheer for her each time she outwits the people trying to kill her. Xavier is the "dangerous man" type every woman loves to dream about. All in all, it's a great read and I highly recommend it.

Lizette wakes up and does not recognize the face in the mirror. She can't imagine why she looks different. Xavier has been monitoring her for a couple of years and offers to help her find out who she is. However, his presence in her life causes her to have flashbacks and she is not sure she can trust him. Since no one else is offering to help, she must let him help. Linda Howard at her best. She grabs you in the beginning and takes the reader on a ride with twists and turns. Her books are definitely worth the readers time. ( )

Linda Howard did not hit a home run with this book. When Lizette sees her face in the morning, she doesn't recognize herself. I think the author wasted too much time, waiting to tell us what happened to Lizette. And when we do find out, it's too far fetched to believe. I would say maybe a beach read.

Exciting, fast-paced story with intrigue, romance, and double-crossing agents. Enjoyable, fun beach read. ( )

Book description
Lizette Henry wakes up one morning and makes a terrifying discovery: She doesn’t recognize the face she sees in the mirror. She remembers what she looks like, but her reflection is someone else’s. To add to the shock, two years seem to have disappeared from her life. Someone has gone to great and inexplicable lengths to keep those missing years hidden forever. But the past always finds a way to return.

Strange memories soon begin to surface and, along with them, some unusual skills and talents that Lizette hasn’t a clue about acquiring. Sensing that she’s being monitored, Lizette suddenly knows how to search for bugs in her house and tracking devices in her car. What’s more, she can elude surveillance—like a trained agent.

Enter a mysterious and seductive stranger named Xavier, who claims he wants to help—but who triggers disturbing images of an unspeakable crime of which Lizette may or may not be the perpetrator. With memories returning, she suddenly becomes a target of anonymous assassins. On the run with nowhere to hide, Lizette has no choice but to rely on Xavier, a strong and magnetic man she doesn’t trust, with a powerful attraction she cannot resist. As murky waters become clear, Lizette confronts a conspiracy that is treacherous and far-reaching and a truth that, once revealed, may silence her and Xavier once and for all.
