How do you know who you are if you can’t remember anything? This is the question that confronts Denise Baer’s amnesiac heroine, Brand Rye, waking up in hospital after a car crash.
I was immediately drawn in by the opening chapters of ‘Fogged Up Fairy Tale’, where the perspective shifts between present and past, between different versions of reality. There is the ‘present’ Brand, leaving hospital and returning home with Easton, the man to whom she’s been married for five years. Or so he says. Trying to reconstruct her past life and her identity, Brand must rely mainly on Easton to offer pieces of the puzzle, just as she relies on him for everything else, food, money, a place to live. But why does she feel so uneasy? And why does he seem so hostile at times? What is he not telling her, and what is there in her past that she would possibly prefer to keep hidden?
As the story unfolds there are echoes of David Lynch’s cult film, ‘Mulholland Drive’. Both play on the theme of amnesia, both centre on damaged women with ‘fractured parts’, as Brand says about herself. The shift between timeframes, between different places and settings, gives a dream-like quality to events, adding to the sense of unreality and confusion. Without giving away too much, other disturbing elements get thrown into the mix–dangerous criminals, a creepy alternative reality Internet site–which help to build up the edgy, noirish ambience of this fogged up world with its intimations of secrets not shared, of unspoken betrayals.
But fogged up though it may be, this is also a ‘fairy tale’. Are Brand and Easton being offered a second chance at romance?

What an interesting concept!

As I read this book I was discovering the life of the main character right along with her!
Brand is odd, wild, fiery, and a great character. She is by no means perfect, so I was fond of her from the start.

Easton however is stand off-ish, and I never totally warmed to him.
Although he did sound yummy, so I forgave him lots.

What Brand remembers is no mundane life. It's a life that's a bit messed up, and involves hunting criminals.

Sometimes it was a bit confusing. I wasn't always sure if I was reading current day or the past. But given Brand had amnesia, this confusion leant itself to the story. And to be fair, there is a little date and place at the top of each chapter.

Very nicely written, a different spin on a romance.
Definitely worth a read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Romantic Journey Fraught with Danger and Psychological Insight. 25 Jan. 2017
By arleen alleman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really loved this book. There were a few minor editing glitches, but overall, it was very well written. Brand and Easton are flawed protagonists whose struggles to achieve a second or third chance at love following Brand's amnesia kept my interest throughout. The switch back and forth from present day to the past was a little disorienting, but this seemed to give me a sense for what Brand experienced in trying to piece together her foggy life. The ending is satisfying. The journey to Brand's recovery, including danger, betrayal, and psychological insight, is fascinating and exciting. I recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars BIG Thumbs Up!!! 28 Aug. 2014
By Hometown Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This delightful romantic comedy keeps you amused and entertained throughout. Brand is a witty and complicated character that will keep you turning the pages. Easton provides the right amount mystery and sex appeal to keep the female audience engaged. I highly recommend this book. Great story line that flows from the beginning to the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Unusual Take on Romance 4 Nov. 2016

But fogged up though it may be, this is also a ‘fairy tale’. Are Brand and Easton being offered a second chance at romance? As the two main protagonists discover and re-discover their relationship in an atmosphere of mounting sexual tension, the suspense heightens, the action speeds up, the surprises keep coming and the reader is left guessing right to the end.
For all those who enjoy an unusual take on romance, a mystery with plenty of twists and turns, a funny, complex, engaging central character in an even more complex situation, all served up with dollops of atmosphere, ‘Fogged Up Fairy Tale’ is a great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fresh take on second chances 22 May 2015
By writes4coffee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This begins as a subtle mystery then explodes into what can happen when love, secrets, and loneliness get tangled up. I enjoyed the witty dialogue, the unexpected tender moments between Easton and Brand, and the way they were able to find their way back to each other. I was caught up in the case, turning pages to see what happened next. I liked how we went from past to present in the chapters--it made for a more interesting read. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a fresh take on second chances.
