Absorbing mystery thriller.

Quinn Fleming is trying to reclaim her life after a vicious nighttime attack left her with a traumatic brain injury. The trauma resulted in a type of amnesia that prevents her from forming new memories. Although she's back to work as a florist in a San Diego flower shop, she cannot function without her post it labels on every surface and her diary notebook in which she records every detail of her daily existence. Then she witnesses a murder in the alley behind the floral shop. In order not to forget what she saw in the dark, she records every detail immediately and gets the police involved. Fortunately, Quinn is an artist, and she pours any snippet of memory into sketches from dreams and flashes of insight. Unfortunately, someone else knows that she was there in the alley and saw what happened. That someone does not want Quinn to remember anything.

I enjoyed the story, especially the clinical details about TBI and this particular type of amnesia. The recovery from such an injury can be very arduous and frustrating. I liked how the main character approached her situation and all her efforts to keep making progress toward recovering lost memories and also to increase her ability to make new ones. The other characters in the book were also fleshed out and important to the narrative. The mystery was complicated and the pacing of the revelations as it was solved was well done.

Fortunately, I was able to listen to the audiobook while also following along in the e-book ARC -- both provided by the publisher. The narrator of the audiobook, Cynthia Farrell, did an excellent job of voicing and giving nuance to all the characters. both male and female. It definitely enhanced my enjoyment of the book.

“That was the past.”

How would you survive if you woke up each day with no memories of the past several months? That’s what Quinn faces daily after suffering a traumatic brain injury. And if that wasn’t bad enough she witnesses a murder, only to watch all evidence of that drive away when the murderer takes the body with him. The police don’t believe her. She doesn’t even believe it herself. Then she becomes the target. With the help of one determined police detective, a counselor who experienced a TBI himself and her handy dandy notebook of memories what follows is an extraordinarily suspenseful tale that gets more engrossing the further you get into it.… (mere)

To surrender to the darkness was more terrifying than trying to force her way through it.

Quinn Fleming was assaulted and left for dead. Rescued by a passerby, she is learning to cope with her lack of ability to remember anything - all her memories lost and unable to retain new ones. Witnessing a murder, she makes copious notes so she will be able to share the details of what she saw. But will anyone believe her?

I found myself feeling like I was going through this struggle with Quinn. There is so much to learn about a traumatic brain injury - TBI. I have not had the experience, but know people who have. It is a very long process toward recovery. The author has done a great deal of research into the life of one that has been afflicted with a TBI. Will she ever be the same again, and does it matter if she is not?

An early copy was received through Kensington Publishing Corp. and NetGalley. These impressions are my own and were in no way solicited.

Quinn survives a traumatic attack and looses parts of her memory. In order to recover memories she starts to write everything down in a notebook.
Then she witnesses a murder one night and has trouble recalling the incident except that she wrote it down. She works to try to recover memories and to maybe help police solve the murder. Great read if you love a thriller.
