Review, Blog Tour and giveaway of Shattered Memories by DebbieLynn Costello

Shattered Memories     Book 1 in the Charleston Earthquake Series

What a descriptive story.. Earthquakes, the devastation, the loss of life and the people who help in the aftermath! I liked how this family of Doctors practiced not only their profession but their faith.. It was a historical book, a family’s  story of friends, enemies, so full of intrigue and mystery. When Olivia lost her memory during the earthquake and doesn’t remember which of the handsome young men is, was, could be her fiance?? The story takes us down some mysterious paths! If you like history, mystery and romance.. You will love this story!

My opinion..It’s going on my favorites list!  I was gifted a copy by the author and Celebrate Lit to review and participate in the Shattered Memories Blog Tour.

HEY, before you go ~ please leave a comment.. Debbie Lynne Costello has graciously offered to do a giveaway of one copy of this book on this stop if we get 10 comments!   Tell your friends to stop by and comment too.   It’s a really good book!

About the Book

The Charleston earthquake has left destruction like nothing Doctor Andrew Warwick has ever seen. On a desperate mission to find the lady who owns his heart, he frantically searches through the rubble. He finds her injured and lifeless. After she regains consciousness, the doctor’s hopes are quickly dashed as he realizes she doesn’t remember him. Things only get worse when he discovers she believes she’s still engaged to the abusive scoundrel, Lloyd Pratt. Now Drew is on a race with the wedding clock to either help her remember or win her heart again before she marries the wrong man.

Waking in a makeshift hospital, Olivia Macqueen finds herself recovering from a head injury. With amnesia stealing a year of her memories, she has trouble discerning between lies and truth. When her memories start returning in bits and pieces, she must keep up the charade of amnesia until she can find out the truth behind the embezzlement of her family’s business while evading the danger lurking around her.
