Thomas has no idea who he is or was after a motorcycle accident leaves him scarred, angry and with amnesia. Thinking no one wants him or is even looking for him, he goes on day by day, angry and in denial. Until a feisty red head walks into his life and Thomas has to figure out if the risk of learning his past is enough to have a future. Alyssa Morgan is determined to find her husband and has spent countless hours going after clues, leads and hoping against hope that he had a reason for his disappearance. But she never anticipates the scarred man who has her husband’s voice and has no idea who she is. Can she have the courage to help Thomas face his past with the power of her love?

DOUBTING THOMAS is a story of love, forgiveness and more as two people deal with the after effects of an accident that changed not just one life but two. This is a new to me author who can tell a really good story. With the right amount of mystery, love and emotions, she delivers a strong story that will keep you captivated till the very end. Tight writing, believable characters, tension that has you on the edge of your seat are all part of this wonderful story.

DOUBTING THOMAS is about a two people, Alyssa Morgan, a woman determined to find her missing husband and Thomas, a man wallowing in denial and misery as he tries to forge on with a life that he barely remembers. Thomas is a man with scars-inside and out-as he trudges on, day after day, living half a life. A man with no past, he tries to deal with life as it throws him in the cross hairs of a feisty red head named Alyssa Morgan. His heart knows her but his head is telling him she is a stranger. Alyssa Morgan is hunting for her missing husband and is determined to find out what exactly happened to him. When she spies Thomas, she is stunned to hear her husband’s voice even as she tries to recognize the man. Two people, connected by the heart, try to figure out the past in order to have a future. These are very well written characters. Ms. Taylor definitely knows her characters here. The plot flowed really well and the tight writing was a joy to read.

Full of anguish, emotions running wild and a love determined to be remembered, DOUBTING THOMAS leaves the reader with a smile when the last page is read. I highly enjoyed this story and look forward to reading more of Ms. Taylor’s stories in the future. If you want a highly emotional, delightful story that delivers a smile to you when it is done, then please pick up DOUBTING THOMAS. It is definitely one I plan to read again in the future.
