Lost Christmas Memories on tour with Celebrate Lit

I am thrilled to be a part of this Celebrate Lit tour. Lost Christmas Memories is an action-packed mystery that kept me guessing until the very end with its tale of murder, attempted murder, memory loss, and suspected involvement by local law enforcement. Keegan Thorn is the only person who truly believes that Tracy Wilson witnessed a murder and he is determined to protect her until the killer can be found. His efforts, however, are hindered by Tracy's loss of memory and her inability to remember key details. As Keegan works to solve the mystery he finds it easy to believe that his half-brother and his father are somehow involved. Keegan is a good guy but he has allowed old hurts to turn into a long-time grudge against his biological father and half-brother. It is only in working with Tracy that Keegan realizes that he needs to let go of his bitterness, forget the past and seek  reconciliation.

This is an exciting story filled with suspense and non-stop action but it is also a testament to the power of love. I was touched by the unfailing support of Keegan's adoptive family and I enjoyed watching a sweet romance develop between Tracy and him. Lost Christmas Memories is the perfect holiday read for all who enjoy romantic suspense and Christian fiction.

I received a complimentary copy of this book but this did not influence my review. These are my honest opinions.

Guest Post from Dana

Writing this book was bittersweet for me. It was lovely to finally be able to tell youngest Thorn brother Keegan’s story, but I sure am sorry to say goodbye to this series! It was such fun to write about these four kinsmen and the family bonds that held them together through all manner of murder and mayhem! Here at Mentink Manor, we have recently sent a bear cub away to college for the first time. It feels like I have lost a limb now that my Boo Boo is gone! Fortunately, we will enjoy having her home for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Though it won’t be a cozy country Christmas like it is for Keegan (we live in a city of 80,000 here in Northern, CA) we will be thrilled to have all our family home to celebrate together (Mama Bear, Papa Bear, two cubs, a naughty terrier, and a senior citizen box turtle!) I hope you enjoy this last installment in the Gold Country Cowboy series. I am sending along our best wishes for a blessed holiday season, from our Mentink household to yours!
