About the Book
Summer Velasquez is on the run from a man she has no recollection of after an attack she can’t recall.
Every face in the crowd is a potential suspect, so how is Summer supposed to know who is a threat to her and who isn’t?
After fleeing her assailant and the parents who lied to her about what happened, she changes her name and seeks refuge in Elora, Ontario. The small town feels familiar, although she has no memory of ever having been here.
Even in what should be a safe place, she can’t shake the feeling that she is being watched.
When Ryan Taylor strolls into the Taste of Heaven Café where she works, Summer is immediately drawn to him. However, he may not be who he says he is either. As her suspicions grow, Summer prepares to run again.
But at least one person is determined to stop her. Permanently. And if she can’t remember who he is, this time he may succeed.
In My Opinion
From the first page, Sara Davison draws readers into Lost Down Deep and leaves plenty of questions that need answers. An attach, amnesia, a woman on the run, and the questionable men who follow her.
There is an excellent balance of action, tension, romance, and lighter moments throughout this story. As Summer struggles to regain her memory, she ends up in a little town that enraptures her. Nancy and Daphne become her family (and both ladies are wonderful secondary characters).
It took me a little while to figure out what Ryan’s deal was, but it did not take long to grow on me. Especially once his story comes to light. The complete opposite was true of who was, in part, responsible for everything happening to Summer.
This is book one in The Rose Tattoo trilogy, and I’m hoping to reconnect with some (or most) of these characters again in the next two books.
