Review: If She Only Knew by Lisa Jackson
On a northern California rain slick highway, a car out of control hits a guardrail and careens over. The passenger dies, the driver survives but with facial lacerations and memory loss. A police investigation begins uncovering more unanswered questions that truth. Marla the lone survivor of the car crash is discharged from the hospital to a home and family she does not remember. She has an infant son she does not remember. She has a husband and older daughter she does not remember. Her brother in-law Nick she has no memory of, yet the heated attraction between the 2 is difficult to cool-off.
Although I can state I read this book in only a couple of days, and it was entertaining and suspenseful. I did not enjoy reading this story as much as Shanghai Girls.
If She Only Knew was not a powerful and moving story---it did not educate my mind, nor influence my life. The romance element is more of lust and sexual gusto, not a love story.
I guessed quickly those who were in on the plot, as well as the plot itself.
