Memory Of Murder by Ramona Richards

Memory Of Murder is a good paced page turner. I really *really* appreciated that the Author sent me a signed copy! I treasure that! I liked it even more that I had never read any of Ramona Richard's books, and  this was not only a great first impression, but it was suspenseful and fun as well! (For those daunted by higher priced or lengthy books, this will be just what you were looking for to read!)

Lindsay has two sisters and they all live in a small town. Her sisters are married, and all have careers  Lindsay is single, but is working hard on her restaurant. Suddenly  her life is flipped upside down! Someone wants her dead, or her neighbor  or maybe her sister. Slowly, but surely, with the help of a handsome Christian officer, Jeff, Lindsay starts to think this mess is something coming from her past. However, she has blocked her memory from what happened when she was little. Lindsay, July in her past, must unearth her memories with out falling apart, and with out getting killed while she is putting the pieces together. She also must make sure she doesn't get those she loves killed while she is stumbling around in the dark of her life, and figure out that she either trusts God to lead her, or she doesn't.

Memory Of Murder was suspenseful, nicely written with just enough romance, but not too much. Emotions were sorted out, deep ones, lots of prayer was included, as well as Scripture. Not all is as it seems, and this book shows that very nicely. I enjoyed my first book by Ramona Richards!

Thank you!

This week, the

Love-Inspired Suspense



A word from Ramona:

The hardest biographical sketch to write is always your own, whether or not you’re a writer by profession. You can’t decide what to throw in, what to leave out, and whether or not you should list strengths and flaws, or just strengths.

I like writing and telling stories so much that I once tried to live out a few. After getting a master’s in English, I went on to be the seneschale of my local Society for Creative Anachronism. I had a rocky start, but I did get better. (Robin Hood, eat your heart out.)

People often ask members of the SCA, “Are you in a play?” so I thought it would be fun to do that, too. For seven years, I produced and performed in shows staged by Nashville’s Circle Players.

Although I’m single now, I married in 1982 and in 1987 had Rachel. She’s a cutie. Severely disabled, she’s the heroine of many an article for Special Ed Today magazine. Rachel's nurse, Phyllis, is the real life heroine of “An Act of Desperation,” which I sold to Chicken Soup for the Caregiver’s Soul.

I’m not really a complex person, and my dreams are fairly straightforward: sell books, have enough money to pay the bills and travel a bit, and settle into a cottage. In early 2006, I bought the cottage, which is now more or less swamped by books and DVDs. I write at night (I’m a lifelong night owl), and I occasionally escape by scuba diving, hiking, dancing, and going to movies and bookstores.

I’ve gone to the same church since 1993, and I even sing in the choir. It’s a small but awesome church. I’m no angel, although occasionally I play one in the backyard.

I like staying busy. Life is too short not to follow your dreams.



Lindsey Presley certainly can't imagine why anyone would want her dead-though she knows she wouldn't be alive today if not for the local cop who saved her from two murder attempts. Deputy Jeff Gage has worked difficult cases, but with only Lindsey's fractured memories of a broken past to guide him, this is by far his most challenging.

For Lindsey, fleeing the town she has come to call home is unthinkable. Separately, they are vulnerable, but together, Jeff and Lindsey just may stand a chance of catching a ruthless killer.
