With books of fiction, I like well-developed characters involved in rich story-lines that stay with me after I've gone to bed. This book certainly fills that bill.
The characters are developed not so much that you can visualize them physically, but you can really understand them emotionally. The two main characters are realistic and believable. Our hero and protector cannot leap tall buildings in a single bound, but is definitely skilled at what he does. He’s an imperfect man with emotions and a big heart who gets the job done. Our victim’s trauma is uniquely captured and this lovely lady’s inner strength reads true. Is there romantic involvement between protector and victim? You’ll see. All the supporting characters are purposefully introduced without superfluous characters to confuse the reader.
The pace of the story is set with the situation, on several occasions at a break-neck pace. The book is well researched. A distant villain with a plocomelia abnormality; nice touch. Look it up, I had to.
I recommend “On His Watch” as a thoroughly entertaining easy read.
So, On His Watch begins with a sweet scene of a pregnant mom [Nikki] conversing with her charming little daughter [Mandy], and the narrative broadly hints that all things are not perfect in Nikki’s marriage. Things are about to get way worse.
Ms. Matthews doesn’t make us wait. Just as Nikki’s [beaten, dull] narrative voice settles, she finds her son murdered on the kitchen floor, and the perpetrators are still in the house. The massacre of Nikki’s family is brutal.
Introduce to this scene Jason: FBI agent with a couple mistakes under his belt and a few more in front of him.
Okay, I don’t want to rehash the plot, but will mention that one of my favourite bits was that, due to brain damage, Nikki has amnesia when she comes out of her coma. Now, that’s not the favourite part – it’s that Nikki’s voice is suddenly fresh and new as she’s not at all the person we met at the start. All the people who had beaten her down – and the reasons for her submission – are forgotten, and she stands up for herself. It was a good touch, and a telling statement on how we allow others to affect us.
In all, a great read.
Nikki Hart is the victim of a brutal attack, during which two of her children are killed and she is severely injured. Only after weeks of her being in a coma do the doctors realize that she has lost her memory.
Jason is the man who saved her, and even before she meets him, she thinks of him as her guardian angel.
As she heals and the puzzle pieces of her memory gradually get back into place, the friendship between them blooms into something much more meaningful, on the background of the investigation to find the person who changed their lives forever.
A well-crafted story, with great visuals and realistic characters. Bravo, Mrs. Matthews!
