Deadly Recall by Donnell Ann Bell


Deadly Recall kept me guess to till she told us who was guilty by showing him covering up for his wrong deeds. I like the characters were all different their were ones that we were not supposed to like so of course I didn't. The story kept me wanting to know more about the characters and I did not want to put the book down.

Eden Moran had gone through some tough times. The more her past became clear the more I admired her. When she was nine she witnessed something that shocked and changed her to the end of the book. She blocked it out of her mind for seventeen years.

Sister Beatrice was a nun who disappeared seventeen years ago. No one reported her missing, because she was leaving anyway. Now her bones were dug up construction workers.

Kevin Dancer APD got the case when the bones were discovered seventeen years later. It was hard to find witnesses who might have known what happened to her. He was told by a few people that she was close to one student nine year old Eden.

Eden is now a public defender the opposition for the police. When Kevin tries to question her about Sister Beatrice, she tells him that she did not know her. He told her that a few different people told him she was close to her. Eden remembers getting kicked out of school at nine. Then she was shipped up to her Aunt's because she refused to go to church or play the piano anymore.

Kevin is getting the run around and not getting to talk to some leaders of the Catholic Church at the time Sister Beatrice was a nun teaching the children.

Eden agrees to be her sister's bridemaid and panics when she enters churches. She runs into the Father George Slater who is the pastor of St. Patrick's. He hints that she might want to bring detective Kevin to the wedding as her date. Since most of the people he needs to talk to will be thier.

Kevin agrees to go to the wedding. When Eden almost faints during the service he reaches her before she can hit the floor.
After the wedding that night someone breaks into her building and attacks her neighbor.

Thier is lot of drama, humor, some love scenes. It was not a boring book. I like Donnell Ann Bell's writing and look forward to reading more of her books in the future.

I was given this ebook and asked in return to give honest review of it by Netgalley.

Discription below taken off of Goodreads

A terrifying memory is locked deep inside of her. A killer wants to keep it that way.

Nine-year-old Eden Moran thought she was saying good-bye to her mentor that fateful day in St. Patrick’s. She had no idea she’d witness the nun’s demise, or that her child’s mind would compensate. Now seventeen years later, Albuquerque cops have unearthed human remains, and the evidence points to Eden as being the key to solving Sister Beatrice’s murder. When a hell-bent cop applies pressure, Eden stands firm. She doesn’t remember the woman. Unfortunately for Eden, Sister Beatrice’s killer will do whatever it takes to keep it that way.
