The Last Memory

Annette Stephenson

She woke up among the shattered glass. Crawling free from the wreckage, Tess could not remember how she got there. Inside, something was telling her to get away as fast as she could. Why was everything within her pushing her to escape? Confused by panic and fear, she was surrounded by the darkness of danger. She stared at the man slumped inside the car. With an extreme loss of memory, everything she built disappeared. She lost her childhood and an incredible list of career accomplishments.

As a young girl, Tess Charlton grew up with the love of uncovering mysterious stories. Becoming a reporter, she gained notoriety in her city for pushing dangerously to find answers. When another young reporter lost his life researching two deaths by arson, little did she know, she would become the next victim. Tess could not resist jumping in to uncover the truth. Set near the town of Julian, California, her journey takes her into beautiful farmlands and orchards. Waking up from unconsciousness, she struggled to find civilization and the time it would take to find her memory. With a strong urge to hide, Tess was unsure if she was guilty of a crime or not. A posted ad outside of a small feed store appeared to provide the cover she needed until she could figure out her next steps. Answering the ad gave her the opportunity to find solace at a farm owned by Marion Jones, an elderly widow needing help with her animals. Discovering new things about herself, she searched for the woman she used to be. With the help of a local veterinarian, would she recover and learn to love someone who could see her for who she really was? The Last Memory is about a woman's struggle to regain what she lost and find what her heart has been missing.

Amazing Reviews


The Last Memory written by the author Annette Stephenson is a captivating story.  The main character of the story is Tess Charlton.  She is  working as the News Reporter for the News Day.  Recently she covered the victim's story.  A heinous crime involving arson took place in Julian.

A young dedicated reporter, Robbie Carnes lost his life while researching two deaths by arsonists.  Some people think he was murdered.  Now, Tess is doing the same research.  Even though people have warned her not to involve herself in such a dangerous thing, Tess is obsessed and goes to Julian, California to investigate further.  What will happen when there are no whereabouts of Tess for a week?

This book reminded us of how dangerous it could be to work as a news reporter.  This story kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time.  It's an unputdownable book.  I binged read it.  The title of the book is suitable.  I enjoyed every bit of this book.  Looking forward to reading more books by the author in the near future.

My rating 5/5
