Book Description:

When successful model Ciara Kelly wakes up in hospital, remembering nothing of the weeks she has been missing, her only clues are the ugly words carved into her skin. 

According to the police she was a victim of the Cutter, a serial killer who has already murdered three women. For her protection the police and her doctors give a press conference, announcing that because her amnesia is organically caused, her memory loss is permanent. 

But, whether her memory returns or not is anybody’s guess. Overnight, Ciara’s glamorous life is gone. Her scars have killed both her modelling career and her relationship with her rich boyfriend. 

With nothing to keep her in New York, she returns to her home town of Seattle, moves in with her sister and goes about building a new life. But when her sister lets it slip that Ciara’s memory is returning, the killer comes after her again. If Ciara is to stay alive, she must keep one step ahead of the Cutter.

“Scar Tissue” by M.C. Domovitch was a suspenseful read. For me, it was a murder mystery that was actually a mystery.

This was a book that kept me guessing as I was reading it. It seemed like everyone could literally be a suspect for the crime that was committed against Ciera Kelly. Ciara is our main character and a former model. The book opens with Ciara running for her life after being kidnapped and tortured. 

Now, scared and traumatized, her whole world has changed. Ciara’s memory of what happened to her is gone, and she can’t remember who did it to her or what all exactly happened. She can no longer be a model, and instead moves in with her sister and starts to work at a morgue as a makeup artist for the dead.

Just when Ciara starts to become comfortable in her new life, she starts having flashes of memory. It’s not long after that that information gets out and her would-be murderer decides he needs to finish the job. So Ciara’s life is in turmoil once again as she goes on the run and tries to figure out what happened to her.

I enjoyed how Domovitch set the story. There was ample time given for it to develop in a reasonable fashion (the story takes place over a few years’ time) instead of all the events being rushed one right after the other. I also really enjoyed Ciara’s character. She’s not the type who sits back and lets things happen to her. Instead she takes things in to her own hands. Ciara thinks on her feet, and is a main character that’s easy to root for.

“Scar Tissue” was an enjoyable and fast read. I’d recommend it to anyone who enjoys mysteries or crime novels.
