Let me tell you all I know for sure. My name. Shauna.
I woke up in a hospital bed missing six months of my memory. In the room was my loving boyfriendhow could I have forgotten him?my uncle and my abusive stepmother. Everyone blames me for the tragic car accident that left me near death and my dear brother brain damaged. But what they say can't be truecan it?
I believe the medicine is doing strange things to my memory. I'm unsure who I can trust and who I should run from. And I'm starting to remember things I've never known. Things not about me. I think I'm going crazy.
And even worse, I think they want to kill me.
But who? And for what? Is dying for the truth really better than living with a lie?

I didn't find that with Kiss. It was difficult to follow, and the usual weirdness of his story lines didn't draw me in, I found I was struggling to piece the story together. Once I was half way into the novel, I began to figure out the "who's who." I think the romantic aspect added a soft dimension, but not enough to make it a page-turner. The ending was worth a cheer but that didn't make up for the number of rabbit holes I tripped into.

Sharon Gannon5 Stars Out Of 5September 3, 2010Sharon GannonLoved this book. Ted never ceases to amaze me. He totally keeps you on the edge of your seat! He writes great mystery/thriller stories, but I wish there were more "God" moments or faith related parts. I know his books deal with good and evil but there is never any "real" test of faith or trust in God. Still recommend it though!
Jennifer @ Quiverfullfamily.com5 Stars Out Of 5August 31, 2010Jennifer @ Quiverfullfamily.comWow; can that single word suffice as a book review? Ted Dekker and Erin Healys co-written mystery/thriller Kiss kept me glued to its pages over the course of two days. If it hadnt been for so much laundry and housework to do Im sure I would have finished it in a single day.Im not generally an avid fan of mysteries, but Kiss hooked me early on with the mystery of the heroine Shaunas memory loss and the mystery surrounding the events leading up to and following the car crash that seems to have caused it. Not only must Shauna struggle to decipher the world around her with a memory gap of six months, she also needs to stay out of jail, stay alive, and learn to deal with a mysterious new ability to access the memories of others.The suspense of not-knowing the answers to Shaunas dilemma and situation was maddening, expect this one to keep you up late at night as you read-on to discover what lies behind the incongruities in Shaunas present answers that can only be found in a past that is missing. Mixed with the high-octane suspense Dekker and Healy provide a dose of romance that sweetens the pot without hi-jacking the storyline.Kiss is most definitely delightful reading, and is perfect for losing yourself in a good story. Dekker and Healy subtly weave in some faith elements as well in an understated way, though there isnt an emphasis on redemption. The themes the writing team explores instead tend towards the value of remembering God at work in the past, and the presence of God with us in challenging situations.This is a brisk-paced story that will have you running along behind it, trying to keep up.
