Hey guys, I've been searching for this book forever. It's a fiction romance novel I read a couple of years ago. What I remember about the book is that, there's a married couple and the wife finds out that her husband cheated on her with the wife of their friends. I think the husband buys the other woman some sort of jewelry and the wife finds out someway. I think that they end up getting a divorce or they're separated. . After the divorce the wife gets in a car accident and the hospital calls the husband. The wife has amnesia, either she doesn't remember that he had an affair or that they were married (one of the two). He figures he can win her back and takes her to this small town (I can't remember why he took her to that particular town) where he tries to win her over. Eventually she remembers and doesn't want anything to do with him, in the end they end up together.
If you've read this book or know anything about it please let me know!!!
Thanks :)

Don't think this is the one you're seeking but "Crescendo" by Charlotte Lamb has a similar plot. Characters names are Marina and Gideon.

Thanks!!!! It's not the one but that one sounds good too. I forgot to mention that the setting for the book is in modern times but I'm sure everyone realizes that since the woman is involved in a car accident.

I searched "romance + amnesia" and got 4 titles.

Back in the Marriage Bed
Secret Seduction
The Unforgettable Husband
and one about a princess.

None has descriptions, but it's a start.

I happen to like amnesia as a romance trope. I can think of (vaguely, few titles) easily several dozen amnesia romances. Probably 2/3rds of those, it's the woman that has amnesia. I can only think (again, vaguely - no titles at all this time) of maybe a dozen where the amnesia...um, simplified a complicated relationship? (how would you express the events in the OP...). And I don't recall that any of the ones I've read actually had a cheating husband - there were at least a couple where she was convinced he was cheating, but once the amnesia forced a new perspective she figured out it wasn't true. This may be because I dislike 'taking back a cheating spouse' as a trope, so if I've read any like that I might have blanked out the memory.

So...I can't really help with the question, but I do know that amnesia romances are very common, and amnesia of an estranged spouse is not all that rare.

I read the description for all of them and none of them are the book that I'm looking for, all though Back in the Marriage Bed is very similar. Thanks for the help!!!

I should also add that if I recall correctly the wife finds out about the cheating around Christmas time.

Some Enchanted Season (not Evening - that's the song. Though there's probably a romance with that name, too - or a dozen of them...)
