Book Review Friday! Remember to Forget by Deborah Raney
It’s that time again! Remember to Forget by Deborah Raney is a Contemporary Romance novel, but it can also be considered Women’s Fiction with Romantic parts since it doesn’t follow the well-known rules of the Romance genre. That’s not to say that it lacks in any way.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story. I think Ms. Raney did a fantastic job of weaving together more than just a boy meets girl romance. She dug deeper into the souls of each of her characters and brought out their true identity. She made me fall in love with Maggie, Trevor, and Wren.
Graphic designer Maggie Anderson has an abusive boyfriend, but she has no way of getting out until a terrible event brings her freedom in the most unlikely way. When Maggie gets carjacked, she can either run back to Kevin, her verbally abrasive boyfriend, or she can run away and forget her past…but at what cost?
Trevor Ashlock is biding his time on this earth after losing his family in a tragic accident. The memories that surround him in his hometown are sometimes too hard to contend with, but what other choice does he have? Everyone tells him it’s time to move on, but he’s just not ready.
When Maggie finds herself in Trevor’s hometown, maybe they can heal the wounds of their past together before it catches up to them.
I could not put this book down. I know I’ve thought about running away from my life and trying to start over, so reading Maggie’s story gave me that escape with none of the consequences. I found myself dreaming of Clayburn and imagining what it would be like to live there. Reading this story was a true pleasure. I give it five stars!
