Kiss




















Kiss
by Ted Dekker and Erin Healy

About the book: Sometimes dying with the truth is better than living with a lie.

After a car accident puts Shauna McAllister in a coma and wipes out six months of her memory, she returns to her childhood home to recover, but her arrival is fraught with confusion.

Her estranged father, a senator bidding on the White House, and her abusive stepmother blame Shauna for the tragedy, which has left her beloved brother severely brain damaged. Leaning on Wayne Spade, a forgotten but hopeful lover who stays by her side, Shauna tries to sort out what happened that night by jarring her memory to life. Instead, she acquires a mysterious mental ability that will either lead her to truth or get her killed by the people trying to hide it.

In this blind game of cat and mouse that stares even the darkest memories in the face, Shauna is sure of only one thing: if she remembers, she dies

From me: It was nice to read a book by the "old Ted". The new Ted is the one who's been writing the psychotic books like Skin and Showdown (which is fine, I just liked the other stuff better). Kiss is more like his first books, Blink of an Eye and Thr3e. I like how there's a little thriller, mystery, romance and God all wrapped into one neat package. The beginning of the book was a little slow, but once I hit the halfway mark I flew through it and by the time I read the last word, I was glad I read it.

Thanks for the warning about it being slow at the beginning. I'll be reading this in April!
