An unusual profession stands at the center of this suspense novel, Tessa is an landscaper who specializes in labyrinths, an obsession she has had since a little girl. So it is no surprise that her former boyfriend contacts her when he has a construction project that involves the restoration of a labyrinth. But she is still disturbed since her relationship with this boyfriend was rocky and he hurt her badly and her own emotional health has always been turbulent. She can't resist the pull of the labyrinth however, and as the project continues she finds the strength to confront several unanswered questions from her past.
The labyrinth element was intriguing and the past and present monsters that Tessa confronts made for a page turning read. It was a bit improbable in parts but then that made for an exciting story. Fans of Christian and/or romantic suspense should enjoy this one.

Without a doubt, this book and Kristen Heitzmann are two of my favorite things now. From the first chapter, I was thrown into a whirl asking a thousand silent questions trying to understand and just comprehend what was going on. The more I read, the more I needed to read to find out even more. The plot is fabulous. The characters are amazing. It is a story that is so real that it bridges on imagination and reality. (Trust me if you read it, that comment makes sense). The Edge of Recall is something that I would say is unlike anything I have ever read, although I would equate it to being along the same psychological amazing lines as the works of [author: Melanie Wells] in her series. This is a long book, but in a good way. You really do not want it to end. As things started toward an ending, I was feeling kinda blah about it, but I am so very much content with the ending that I cannot help but giggle a little. I'd call this a page turner without a doubt. For some it might not be what you read before bed though... and for others it could touch a nerve or bring something to light. Overall, it is a wonderful work of fiction that would definitely be enjoyed by male and female alike.… (more)

Hands down, my favorite book of 2013. So much I read it twice. I just wasn't ready to leave that story behind. The tension (romantic & peril) is delectable.
