This week's eight comes from my paranormal romantic suspense novel Deceptions of the Heart.


Heres' the set up...

The woman who has Rhonda's memories and Jennifer's body is attempting to piece together everything she has learned. The thoughts come from Rhonda's psyche.

Here's the eight...

This new bit of information astonished me as I tried to shift all the pieces of the puzzle into place. My last memory is five years old, but Jennifer’s surgery was three years ago. Then…Jennifer had her surgery the same year I died. The timing of the two events was no coincidence. Those two missing years suddenly seemed even more significant. After three years, why is Jennifer suddenly having problems with her memory? What happened to shift her reality from her life to mine? What happened in Jennifer’s three missing years?

Here's the blurb...

Surviving as Jennifer Cristobal isn’t easy for Rhonda Prentiss. Three years ago, a sudden, fatal trauma stripped Rhonda of her middle-class, stay-at-home-mom existence. A brand new shock prompts Rhonda’s essence to invade Jennifer’s soul, suppressing the other woman’s memories and replacing them with her own. When Jennifer’s heart transplant surgeon, Dr. Crane, can’t—or won’t—help her understand her unusual body-swapping dilemma, she turns to the only man she can trust. But can she fully trust Jennifer’s husband, Anson? Rhonda’s memory proves faulty—and sugarcoated. Multiple threats from her past shake her fragile hold on mental stability. If one of her enemies succeeds, he will kill Rhonda’s soul… or Jennifer’s body… or both.

  1. Really a fascinating premise and the excerpt is so intriguing as she starts putting the puzzle pieces together. Terrific snippet!

  2. Whoa. That's a creepy way to wake up. Good tension, Denise. :)

  3. Lovely #8Sentences - nice set up, disturbing conditions - wonderfully done (also a great premise for the novel). Good job!!

  4. So many secrets and a convoluted timeline--this is getting good! :)

  5. Trippy little story idea. I think I might just like it : )

  6. Very suspenseful... as I was reading your 8, the first thought I had was that she had had a heart transplant and her memories were disrupted by the donor's heart. then I read your blurb at the end and it confirmed my suspicion... what a great concept - very intriguing!

  7. Yet more intrigue in those eight.

  8. I want to know the answer to those questions too. I think I'm as confused as her which is probably a good thing.

  9. Love the mystery to the three missing years. Why won't the doctor tell her anything? Does he have something to do with it? Does Jennifer have Rhonda's heart? All so very intriguing! Nice 8.
