I didn't know what to expect when reading this. I feel the cover lets it down somewhat, and needs a revamp. That's MHO.

Inside the book was good though. Her fella goes off to fight in the War, its sad, funny and poignant, but it didn't keep my interest all the way through. I feel some of the story was just a little bit hyped. But I won't say more than that.

I was grateful for Aspendawn Books allowing me to read this via Net Galley.

The Memory of You. Laurie Kellogg.

ARC supplied via Netgalley.
I've enjoyed some of Laurie's works before - always a simple easy to read romance with a solid storyline. This one was very similar to the usual, although I did feel some parts were either simplified or perhaps inappropriate for today's influences. Its clearly set in the 60's/70's - the TV programmes and songs mentioned along with the whole Vietnam issue I recall strongly from my early teen years. The race issue was very different then though, and although its true to what it was like from my memory its doesn't always fit today's thinking. That struck strongly when Matt meets a black lady on his interview and makes a mental note to introduce her if possible to his black colleague thinking they'll get along. Well, apart from colour he knows nothing about her so??? why would he think that. Still, its a minor crit - I recall the TV prog Love thy Neighbour and that certainly wouldn't pass today, along with many of the very sexist comedies from the time!!
So, Matt decides to look over the situation with his wife, finds out he has a son and everything changes for him. He still has no memory of her other than fragments, but he wants to get to know his son and luckily he's on the spot just as she needs help. It all works well for him, she's a very kind, trusting sort and soon he's living in the house as a sort of guest working for keep while he gets a job. The army will be telling her soon he's alive so he's limited time to work on her, and especially as she's planning a wedding very soon. If he can persuade her to stay with him he needs her to love him as he is now and not as the boy he was. They're the same, and yet very different people.

The first thing I have to say is I don't think the cover of this book does any justice to the story. The blurb above which can be read on all book sites really says it all and doesn't leave much for me to tell unless I give away the ending of the story.
You have to suspend your disbelief a bit in this book. You have to believe that Abby is so trusting that she would let a complete stranger into her house and leave her precious son with him.. A stranger who is thin,strange looking and is evasive about who he is. You have to believe that she never notices how quickly he is becoming attached to her son and how he is trying to shape the boy's life.

After saying all that I did enjoy the book apart from the sex scenes which I thought were unnecessary but that's just my opinion.
I liked Matt, what he went through at the hands of his captives was horrific. When he is released he has no memory of his wife or any part of his life. He has to be told by the army who he is,but Matt isn't the same man who left for Vietnam, it has changed him forever.
When he tracks his wife down he finds that she has moved on with life and is about to be married. Abby will hear from the army soon that Matt is still alive so he has only a short time to discover if she could love the man he now is and if he loves her.

Abby is likable too. She is still grieving for her husband but she knows it's time to move on with her life. She meets Mac/Matt, a war veteran and hires him to paint her house. Why is she strangely drawn to him, and why is he so interested in her life,her fiance and her son?

This is prequel of a series of books set in a town named Redemption.

This was a free download for me.

I thought this was a great story, it caught me from the description and I started reading it straight away. Then I didn't want to put it down.

It's an easy to read love story about a man returning home from the abuse of a prisoner of war camp in Vietnam. Although this is a love story, I found the hero's relationship with "the boys" very heartwarming.

The dialogue between the characters is flowing, the characters are strong and believable.

I thought it might be dated, but no, I found I related to the time and enjoyed remembering about things mentioned in the story, like the TV shows of that period.

Following this review I will be looking to see what more this author has to offer.

If you like an interesting spicy love story, then this is for you.

Great book, kept me hooked start to finish. Lovely idealistic relationship development, if a little too good to be true given the war tortured hero but that's what a romance is all about. Would definitely recommend as an easy enjoyable read to warm you up and make you smile.
