A.M. Johnson won me over with her Forever Still series. This series appeared on Goodreads as a recommendation, and, a couple months ago, they went on sale, which was incredibly lucky. I binged on all three books in one weekend, and I thoroughly enjoyed her writing style, her flawed, yet lovable, characters, and her integration of music into her stories. One task that A.M. Johnson was able to accomplish was the redemption of a character that I hated in book one, which is a hard task to complete. She did such an amazing job with him that he is now my favorite character from the series. With Scared Hart, the reader seems to be getting the story of another broken and flawed character, and I am excited to see how A.M. Johnson has crafted this story in order to give him and his family their resolution.
Sleep, it was luxury I didn’t have.
I could hear it then, in the dark light of night, in the dusky morning…
The click of the trigger, the smell of her blood, the sound of the rain.
I never thought I would see her again.
She was a ghost.
She was dead.
When Maggie Wright pushed her way into my life, she brought the phantom with her, and I was helpless to her pull.
Everything I had, all of it, had been taken from me ten years ago. I had nothing but the shirt on my back, the memories that still burned through my veins, and the regret I drowned in every day.
I am Ryan Hartford…and I have nothing left to lose.
