Circumvent by SK Derban

CircumventBook Description:
Life is too perfect... Imagine living in a quaint, beach front cottage on the Hawaiian island of Maui. You have an amazing job, combined with the pleasure of working from home. Lunch breaks become a daily picnic on the sand. Dessert is always included because of your marriage to a famous pastry chef. Life could not be any better. Or so it seems.

When French born, Nikki Sabine Moueix travels to Hawaii for a special work assignment, her job of writing an article about a famous Swiss pastry chef generates more than a magazine piece. They fall in love, get married, and Nikki Moueix becomes Mrs. Ruggiero Delémont.

When another assignment calls for Nikki to spend three weeks in France, Ruggiero's schedule prevents him from joining her. She travels alone, advancing straight into danger. After a threatening confrontation, Nikki wakes up in a French hospital with no knowledge of her past. When she fails to check in, Ruggiero panics and pushes for an immediate investigation. But as he closes in, Nikki's new found friend moves her to another city. It becomes a game of hide and seek with Nikki as the prize. 

CIRCUMVENT allows readers to form a bond with Nikki as they yearn for her to remember. They will cheer for Ruggiero and his relentless determination to locate his beloved wife. This is a story about two people who never lose their faith in God, and find amazing friends to help them along the way.

My Thoughts:
I enjoyed this book.  The banter between husband and wife at the beginning had me intrigued.  It was very realistic.  Nikki is a journalist who gets sent on different assignments for her magazine.  I enjoyed the set up for the 'action' part of the story.  The getting to know the characters is one of my favorite parts of the book.  
The characters are good and pulled me in.  I felt so bad for Ruggiero and could feel his panic.  The detective was smart he may have been my favorite.  I really felt bad for Nikki and was rooting for her throughout to just remember!  The pace was a bit slower than I had expected but the storyline, you will want to stick with it.  Overall, it was a good book.
A 3/5 for me.
