    Book Review

Reviewed by Lisa McCombs for Readers' Favorite

It started with a look, a brief encounter of unexpected intensity that locked into place the destiny of Elle and Luke. Without Luke’s persistence, Elle might have walked away with only the occasional regret. Her heart, though, was captured as a storybook romance engulfed her very being. When reality threatened the destruction of their fairy tale, Elle chose to return home to care for her abusive, alcoholic mother during her final days. It was better for Luke in the long run, Elle rationalized. He was far too good for her. Flash forward twelve years when Luke awakes from a coma with retrograde amnesia as a result of a life-threatening car accident. Imprisoned in his last memories of twelve years past, Luke fully believes he and Elle are still a couple. Elle agrees to travel to his bedside with Luke’s mother and friends, joined in a dangerous game of make-believe. Allowing Luke’s memories to return naturally would make more sense without all the pain associated with the last twelve years.

When Time Stands Still by Sara Furlong Burr is a story of heartbreaking true love. Fast-paced, with the right number of surprising plot twists, it keeps the reader turning page after page. Sara Furlong Burr uses human emotions to their fullest degree in sharing this tear-jerker. Elle and Luke are the couple we all remember from high school or early college; the one voted “best couple”. With an abundance of appropriate love scenes and social interactions, this novel is difficult to put down. Loved it!
