Christmas Suspense & Romance | Lost Christmas Memories by Dana Mentink


A witness with amnesia...

Can she trust this Gold Country Cowboy with her life?

Tracy Wilson witnessed a murder—but after a head injury, she can’t remember what she saw. Now someone plans to silence her for good, and only cowboy Keegan Thorn believes her. With a killer after her at Christmas, Tracy is running out of time to remember…and falling dangerously hard for the cowboy who could break her heart.

Publisher: Love Inspired Suspense
Release Date: November 6, 2018



The conclusion to Dana Mentink’s Gold Country Cowboys series, Lost Christmas Memories delivers all the excitement I have come to expect. Amnesia, a persistent killer, a family grudge… and romance, too! With great suspense and action, the pages of this book tell the story for the youngest Thorn brother, and I enjoyed every bit of it. It’s fast-paced with great twists, plus sweet emotion- and faith-filled moments, and does not disappoint.

So, if you’re in need of some romantic suspense this holiday season, pick up Lost Christmas Memories. It’s a treat, to be sure. (And if you haven’t started already, why not just read the whole series? It would be a fun one to binge-read!)


Thanks to Celebrate Lit, I received a complimentary copy of Lost Christmas Memories and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.


Dana Mentink is a two time American Christian Fiction Writers Carol Award winner, a Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice Award and a Holt Medallion winner. She is a national bestselling author of over thirty five titles in the suspense and lighthearted romance genres. She is pleased to write for Harlequin’s Love Inspired Suspense, Harlequin Heartwarming and Harvest House. Dana was thrilled to be a semi-finalist in the Jeanne Robertson Comedy With Class Competition. Besides writing, she busies herself teaching third grade. Mostly, she loves to be home with Papa Bear, teen bear cubs affectionately nicknamed Yogi and Boo Boo, Junie, the nutty terrier, a chubby box turtle and a feisty parakeet. 


Writing this book was bittersweet for me. It was lovely to finally be able to tell youngest Thorn brother Keegan’s story, but I sure am sorry to say goodbye to this series! It was such fun to write about these four kinsmen and the family bonds that held them together through all manner of murder and mayhem! Here at Mentink Manor, we have recently sent a bear cub away to college for the first time. It feels like I have lost a limb now that my Boo Boo is gone! Fortunately, we will enjoy having her home for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Though it won’t be a cozy country Christmas like it is for Keegan (we live in a city of 80,000 here in Northern CA) we will be thrilled to have all our family home to celebrate together (Mama Bear, Papa Bear, two cubs, a naughty terrier, and a senior citizen box turtle!) I hope you enjoy this last installment in the Gold Country Cowboy series. I am sending along our best wishes for a blessed holiday season, from our Mentink household to yours!


To celebrate her tour, Dana is giving away a grand prize of a copy of Lost Christmas Memories, a $50 Amazon gift card, and this cute reading charms necklace!!
