Amanda is a wonderful story, full of colorful characters and a quick plot. "Amanda" has returned home after 20 years when she and her mother left when she was a child. She cannot prove that she is the real Amanda, and her relatives are all sceptical. Amanda doesn't really care if they believe her or not. She just wants to know why her mother took her and ran so many years ago. Amanda must deal with an unexpected romantic intrest in her family's lawyer and her old friend, Walker. As she asks questions however horrible things begin to happen. A trainer at the stable is killed, Amanda is poisoned, and her protective dogs go missing, and she can only asume they have been taken. Amanda must find out why her mother took her and ran before it's too late.
This was a very good book, that drew me in. The characters are interesting and the plot keeps you guessing. I've read it many times over the years, and if you like suspenseful romances you will too.

While I am familiar with Kay Hooper, this is the first book I've read by her. I liked the outline of the story and it was easy to follow. The ending took a turn I didn't expect, which was interesting. This isn't usually the type of book I read, but I did enjoy it.

Kay Hooper is great!

Others have claimed to be Amanda Daulton, but now a beautiful, self-assured woman has stepped out of the shadows of the past, insisting she's the missing heiress to a multimillion-dollar fortune. One look is all it takes to assure the family patriarch that she's his beloved granddaughter. But others at the magnificent Southern mansion called Glory are not as easily convinced, others with much to lose from her sudden reappearance. Soon suspicion erupts in a chilling attempt on her life, and after the traumatice ordeal, she begins to have flashes of a nightmarish vision. What, if anything, happened twenty years ago to drive a mother and her nine-year-old daugther away from their privileged life? The struggle to find the elusive answer exposes a frightening trail of secrets -- a trail that leads shockingly to the present and to the enigmatic woman who calls herself Amanda....

This book is a page turner. She kept me guessing until the very end. I started the book on Friday evening and finished it Saturday afternoon.

Hooper keeps you on tenterhooks altogether too long. Is she, or isn't she? Did he, or didn't he? (Don't want to give too much away) . . . but read the blurb.

From back cover: A spellbinding tale of contemporary suspense that begins with a mysterious homecoming and ends in a shattering explosion of passion, greed, and murder. And all because a stranger says her name is... Amanda.
