    A Secondhand Life has such a unique plot angle that I was hooked very early on Pamela Crane has done her research into something called organ memory which is essentially where there is proof that after a person has received a body organ donated from a deceased person such as a heart or lung that certain things can happen These things can be like changes in food preferences, TV shows, colour preferences, things that used to be liked now are not, vivid dreams and a sense of having memories of A Secondhand Life has such a unique plot angle that I was hooked very early on Pamela Crane has done her research into something called organ memory which is essentially where there is proof that after a person has received a body organ donated from a deceased person such as a heart or lung that certain things can happen These things can be like changes in food preferences, TV shows, colour preferences, things that used to be liked now are not, vivid dreams and a sense of having memories of another life that is not one s own Absolutely fascinating And a great basis for a plot for a novel.This is book two in a series and honestly I would not have noticed, you can absolutely read this one as a stand alone no problem at all A serial killer has been killing young girls over a long period of years and is still getting away with it His victims, as young as 12 years old are killed in the same way and a calling card is left to tease the police with So far, the police are no closer to connecting any dots to get even close to a suspect.A young victim is murdered, another young woman receives her heart and is never the same again Our main character begins to experience things relating to organ memory and quite naturally is overwhelmed by it all As pieces begin to fit together she feels an overwhelming need and desire to do her bit to stop this killer in his her tracks Civilian becomes private detective You would be forgiven for thinking it all sounds a bit far fetched but honestly the author does a good job of making this an intriguing and fascinating story being told There are mixed elements in this book including flashbacks to the murder victim s life and last moments alive that are brilliantly done in my opinion There is certainly a crime element of course, there is a romantic relationship that doesn t do so well under the pressure of the new hunt for a serial killer kind of understandably and plenty of character who come under the radar of potential suspect Our civilian sleuth is a risk taker and really starts to dig deep, perhaps deeper than she should What she is going to uncover will change everything forever.There are some good twists in this novel as it move along and the pace is really good right from the beginning This was nearly a 5 star read for me as I truly enjoyed reading it and was eager to know where it was going It s well written and this is certainly an author I am keen to readof My actual rating is a 4.0 4.5 because of a few minot plot holes, and the fact that for some reason I kept picturing the main character as not as a woman in her mid 30 s but as a teenager aged about 19 I kept trying to pinpoint why I could not see her in adult form but have not put my finger on it yet I had to keep reminding myself of her age At first I thought it was an YA book interestingly I guessed the ending and was right but that made the book no less enjoyable and once I was past the halfway point I was not putting the book down until I got to the last word in the book I would definitely recommend this one to those that like a thriller with a bit of a different in the plot and storyline The whole concept of organ memory is fascinating and how it plays out in the novel is really something else A great read Many thanks to Pamela Crane for a copy of this novel to read in exchange for a fair, honest and professional book review.Note I have review copies of this great book available at the moment for reviews, readers and bloggers If keen email me at booklovercatlady gmail.com to express interest.Thanks for reading my review Forof my book reviews, plenty of awesome books to win, author interviews and features come over to join me for book fun at follow me on Twitter enquire about joining my reviewers team to enquire about my book publicity services

    At the age of 12, Mia is involved in a serious road accident that kills her father She is so seriously injured herself, that she needs a heart transplant But the victim is the result of a tragedy, namely murder.Some twenty years later, Mia starts to have terrifying nightmares which don t make any sense, until she works out who her heart belonged to and the circumstances The donor was also a 12 years old but not a random victim It appears that she was one of the Triangle Terror s victims and At the age of 12, Mia is involved in a serious road accident that kills her father She is so seriously injured herself, that she needs a heart transplant But the victim is the result of a tragedy, namely murder.Some twenty years later, Mia starts to have terrifying nightmares which don t make any sense, until she works out who her heart belonged to and the circumstances The donor was also a 12 years old but not a random victim It appears that she was one of the Triangle Terror s victims and the culprit still, hasn t been caught.She is driven to find answers as her nightmares becomeandfrightening She is seeing scenes of Alexis s murder and slowly puts the pieces together When the night terrors start, her boyfriend is unable to understand or help but she gets close to Alexis s brother and they share their tortured thoughts, mainly in the night, when neither can sleep.The policeman who was the first on the scene at Alexis s murder has information that only the killer and Alexis knew, and certainly not Mia There is no documented proof of this, but she finds out that Alexis s brother has a criminal record for involuntary manslaughter the accident that killed Mia s father When she confronts him she finally gets the truth He took responsibility for the accident as he was shielding Evan, who had a great deal to lose his job amongst other things They follow up 2 other leads, thinking they may have found the killer, but this doesn t work out.This story s intriguing and the plot is fast paced Organ memory has received a great deal of media interest and Ms Crane really does do it justice As Alexis s murder is one of at least 4, and the killer needs to be found, and fast She realises that she is fighting for her life and she will be the next victim.I was surprised to learn that Mia is in her 30 s and not a teenager She obviously needs to grow up a bit I thought that I had worked out who the Terror was, but I was wrong With thanks to Booklover Catlady for an ARC in exchange for an unbiased review

    Organ memory I can t claim to know much about the subject matter The first thought that jumped to mind was a 90s film in which the protagonist loses an arm and has it replaced with a limb that belonged to a serial killer I believe it was called Body Parts which in turn stirred up a concern that this story would be somewhat formulaic I am happy to report that Ms Crane has put her own fresh spin on it and avoided tropes and cliches during the process The writing is engaging and the pacing Organ memory I can t claim to know much about the subject matter The first thought that jumped to mind was a 90s film in which the protagonist loses an arm and has it replaced with a limb that belonged to a serial killer I believe it was called Body Parts which in turn stirred up a concern that this story would be somewhat formulaic I am happy to report that Ms Crane has put her own fresh spin on it and avoided tropes and cliches during the process The writing is engaging and the pacing is taut The choice of using first person narrative for both the protagonist and the killer also worked quite well The reader is left wondering as to the identity of the killer throughout I enjoyed it
