Sudden Recall


Title:  Sudden Recall

Author:  Lisa Phillips

Pages:  284 (large print edition)

Year:  2016

Publisher:  Love Inspired Suspense

My rating is 4 out of 5 stars.

Sienna Cartwright is a CIA agent who has taken something that doesn’t belong to her and some very powerful and dangerous people want it back.  The only problem is, Sienna doesn’t know what they want any more as she is suffering from amnesia.  She woke up in a hospital a year ago and since then has been recuperating and trying to regain her memory in a small town in Oregon.  She is living with her aunt and taking care of animals.  She is beyond frustrated that she can’t remember anything before waking up in the hospital.  She doesn’t know who to trust.  All she does know is that she has a strong faith in God.  Then, she has a flat tire on her way home and a handsome man stops to help her.  During their introductions, some men in a strange car pull up and try to kidnap her.  The action takes off from their and is nonstop with car chases, gun fights and more.

Jackson Parker is a former SEAL, now a U.S. Federal Marshall operating in Oregon.  He has run into Sienna a couple of times over the past year, but she acted like she didn’t know him.  She seemed almost afraid of him, as if they hadn’t spent hours planning and carrying out a mission while he was still a SEAL just a little over a year ago.  Apparently, the budding romance he thought was happening really wasn’t and she had chosen her work over him.  Pretending to not have any idea of who he was hurt, but he still wants to help her.  When he sees her by the side of the road, he decides to pull over and help her fix her flat tire.

This is another good story from the Love Inspired Suspense line of books.  These books are great for short trips, beach outings or rainy afternoons.  They can be read in a short amount of time and provide suspense, romance and faith in each story.  I like how the author had Sienna’s faith part of her life, but she wasn’t preachy about it.  She lived her faith, but didn’t live to draw attention to it.  The way she prayed, giving control to God and then receiving peace afterward was a great example to see.  If you have a couple of free hours, this is a great way to spend your time!

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
