When Memory Fails is a lovely story about the importance of family (the one we are born to and the one we create), love, taking chances and things not always going as one can hope.
I liked seeing how the characters changed from Falling and how they stayed the same too. It was a nice "visit" back with Hank, Scott, Brian, and Kari, as well as seeing more of the dynamics of what made Hank, Hank.
When Memory Fails shows, to me, once more why I look forward to reading some authors, and D.W. Marchwell never disappoints.
It's been two years since Hank Ballam and Scott Alan fell in love, moved in together, and started building their life. Hank has kept his promise to his boss-and Scott's brother-Brian, proving he can be both his adrenaline-seeking self and a good worker. While Hank enjoys being Brian's right-hand man, nothing gives him more pleasure than going home to Scott every night. But then a major announcement gets Hank thinking about the family he left behind, and he wonders if there is any hope of including them in his new life with Scott.
Seeing Hank's turmoil, Scott quietly reaches out to his lover's family-without telling Hank. Scott is overjoyed when Hank's sister seems receptive, but the reunion doesn't go as planned, leaving Scott to wonder if he's unleashed a series of events that might take Hank from him forever.
