Layla Griffin loses her memory, but finds love. Layla is knocked unconscious one evening after she telephones Sergeant Paul Diamond about some disturbing findings she has discovered at her job, where she does DNA testing. Unfortunately, she loses her memory before Paul can find out what it is she knows. He makes it his duty to help Layla regain her memory and to find out why she called him in the first place.

The road to recovering her memory is a journey in and of itself. Layla learns that she has changed her name, is no longer in contact with her adoptive mother and that she loves Paul.

Paul unearths several mysteries regarding Laylas past, including the fact that her birth parents are closer to her than she could ever imagine. He realizes he must take things slowly because the truth of why Layla initially called him threatens to make Laylas world more chaotic than it already is and it just might be the undoing of their fragile relationship.

Ms. Walker has given us a novel to remember. (Sep., 288 pp., $4.99)
