Remembered was my least favorite of the three books in the Fountain Creek Chronicles. Hey, now! Be nice. Yes, I know it won a Christy Award, but it still did nothing for me.
Book Rating: Here a little, there a little
I have a strong feeling that I would feel differently about this story if I had not read A Lasting Impression first. I felt like those two stories were awfully identical in a lot of ways, so this book got boring for me real fast: A beautiful, sweet French girl who is a good artist, doesn’t have any parents and is basically alone in the world. Crazy, huh? It was just much too similar to me.
That being said, there are great elements of the story. The character of Jack Brennan is wonderful, and if you don’t like him as a leading man, I will be quite surprised. (Maybe kinda like how you are surprised I didn’t really like this book…) The Christian message is good as well.
Veronique is in Colorado searching for her father, and she needs Jack Brennan to help her in her search. (Another thing…here is a girl who needs a “guide”… which in my opinion is very similar to Revealed. Just another element that made me a bit more disinterested.)
Over the course of the book the two protagonists fall in love, and it’s a great ending as you can imagine. If you had read this book, I would love to hear what you think about it! If you haven’t read it, please let me know once you have and what you thought as well.
I would love to write more and really gush about this book, but I can't. Sorry gals.
