about the book


After her broken engagement, Nicki Jackson hoped her move to Cedar Key would give her a fresh start—instead she quickly learns someone’s out to destroy her.

Are the attacks tied to her mother’s recently reopened murder case…or to the nightmares Nicki’s beginning to suspect are actually hidden memories?

With the threats against her escalating, former soldier Tyler Brant vows to keep Nicki safe. He refuses to lose the woman who’s swiftly becoming more than a childhood crush.

But when danger circles closer, is Nicki’s traumatic past better left forgotten…or are her memories the key to something far more sinister?

“Maybe together they’d find healing.”

Buried Memories is the first Love Inspired suspense novel I’ve read by Carol J. Post but it will not be my last. (I’ve previously read and reviewed her novel Trust My Heart)

The suspense starts from the very first scene and it keeps a steady pace all the way through. Not a lot of time to relax – for the main characters or for the readers!! Someone has it out for Nicki and the attacks continue to escalate as the novel progresses. And the fact that they aren’t limited just to her keeps the tensions high!

The romance between Tyler and Nicki adds a different kind of tension to the mix, the pleasing #smoochysmooch kind of tension. Their past adolescent friendship gives even more dimension to their current chemistry, but it’s the bond they share over the nightmares they lived through that really drew me to them – both as individual characters and as a couple.

Bottom Line: Make sure you have enough time carved out to read Buried Memories before you start.  Because once you do start reading, you won’t want to put it down until you’ve finished the whole thing. Romance, suspense, faith, and friendship all combine together with complex characters and a complex mystery to make this a can’t-miss read! Fans of Susan Sleeman, make sure you check out Carol Post too!

about the author

From medical secretary to court reporter to property manager to owner of a special events decorating company, Carol’s resume reads as if she doesn’t know what she wants to be when she grows up. But one thing that has remained constant through the years is her love for writing. She currently pens fun and fast-paced inspirational romance and romantic suspense stories. Her books have been nominated for a RITA® award and an RT Reviewers’ Choice Best Book Award.

Carol lives in sunshiny Central Florida with her husband, who is her own real-life hero, and writes her stories under the shade of the huge oaks in her yard. Besides writing, she works alongside her music minister husband singing and playing the piano. She enjoys sailing, hiking, camping—almost anything outdoors. Her two grown daughters and grandkids live too far away for her liking, so she now pours all that nurturing into taking care of a fat and sassy black cat and a highly spoiled dachshund.

What about you? If you were in Nicki’s situation, would you run and hide or stand and face the nightmares?
