Book review: KISS by Ted Dekker and Erin Healy

Filled with mystery and suspense, KISS by Ted Dekker and Erin Healy is a definite must-read for 2009.
A master of evangelical Christian suspense, Dekker (Thr3e; Blink; Skin) joins first-time author Healy to create an intoxicating and psychological thriller filled with wonderful twists and revelations.
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 loaded 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.
Sequestered from the public eye on her father’s estate, Shauna turns to Wayne Spade, her attentive but “forgotten” boyfriend, to help her piece together the events leading up to the accident. On her quest for answers, Shauna discovers a puzzling mental ability which raises even more questions. Shauna’s circle of trust soon narrows, as it becomes apparent that some around her are determined to keep her from recovering the memories she desperately pursues in her search for truth.
Themes of faith and hope are also interwoven into the plot. As Shauna is drawn deeper into her search for answers, moments of redemption add even more depth to this wonderfully written story.
