In Drift by Amy Murray, Abigail Swift never suspected her mom was anything but insane until the moment she herself recalled a memory about her past; a moment in time she'd never experienced before, and yet, it was definitely one of her past memories. Even worse, the memory is one that could get her killed, especially if she can't find what someone from her past believes she took and now wants back. However, she's not alone in her pursuit. At least she has James, the man she's falling for by her side. Will they be able to find what they need before it's too late, or will they lose their chance at happy ever after?
What a wild ride Ms. Murray takes readers on in this book, not only because of the way it bounces between the present and the memories of the past, but because of all Abigail goes through with the danger coming her way; the secondary characters and whether Abigail can handle their betrayals once she discovers them; and the dialogue that had me hoping Abigail would take a chance on the mysterious James, even though her drifts are dangerous and he seems to make her have more than normal when she's around him. The way this story start had me sympathizing with the heroine, as she's had it rough over the years with her mother's condition and whether she'll end up the same way. However, it was from the moment Abigail meets James that this story became very exciting, as he unleashes something within her she doesn't understand, and yet, can't wait to explore once she gets to know him a bit better. Will she be able to handle what happens to her and everything she ends up discovering?
The dialogue was well-written, beguiling and I loved the rollercoaster of emotions Ms. Murray took me on as a reader. Such as the love between James and Abigail; the anger the heroine feels towards those that betray her; and the moment where I couldn't stop the tears from spilling because of what happens to one of the characters that I came to be charmed by. Moreover, the heroine is resilient, courageous and I liked how determined she was to not give up on James, even though being around him may be dangerous for her health. I also liked how she handled herself under pressure when it came to dealing with the bad guy and that she would do anything to protect those she loves, even if it means sacrificing herself.
Overall, Ms. Murray has delivered a highly entertaining and remarkable read in this book where the secondary characters had me loving them as much as the main ones; the tough obstacles Abigail faced had me cheering for her to be able to overcome them; and the ending had me on the edge-of-my-seat and reading quickly, determined to discover how things would turn out for the heroine and James. Would Abigail survive? Would James be able to help her? I would recommend Drift by Amy Murray, if you enjoy time travel romance, New Adult romance or books by authors Beth Ann Miller, Lindsey Frydman, Rebecca Yarros and MK Schiller.
I’m not crazy. My mother may have died with everyone believing she was insane, but I refuse to accept that as my fate. Even if I am recalling memories about a life I never lived. A life that includes the mysterious James—a guy I’ve only just met, but feel as if I’ve known all my life. The memories are coming hard and fast, and I’m falling down a rabbit hole with consequences that far exceed anything I could have ever imagined. And now, someone is trying to kill me. Someone from my past who knows about my visions and is looking for something he believes I took from him. All I have to do is figure out how these memories relate to the present and maybe I’ll survive to live another day. Maybe…
