Finding Claire by Pamela Humphrey


A woman wakes up in the back of a cargo van, is driven to a house in the middle of nowhere, and is forced into a closet. After more than a day, she manages to escape. Injured and afraid—with no recollection of who she is—she stumbles through the Texas Hill Country with a photo labeled Claire. Seeking safety, she knocks at Alex Ramirez’s cabin door. He protects her, even though she stirs up memories that haunt him. She wants her life back. He wants to ease his guilt and will protect her even if it means risking his own life. Together they search, hoping questions will be answered by Finding Claire.

This book, this book right here gave me a hangover that I couldn’t quite compare to any other kind of hangover I have ever had in the book world. I started out the book quite confused as to what I was reading. Was this a first person account, a true crime? What in the world was going on? It put you right in the middle of the story and left you as helpless as the main character. Then the book takes a sharp left and leaves you gasping for air, searching right along with the characters to find out what the hell is going on. Who is she and why was she taken in the first place. You want to get close to Alex, you want him to protect you , to save you from the memories that haunt you, the letters that you read, the stories that you hear. You will find yourself flipping through the pages just to find out what happens next. Pamela  keeps you on the edge of your seat in this fast paced first person account that evokes an emotional journey that you didn’t even know you were going to take. I totally lost track of time and stayed up way too late just to finish the book because I needed to know how it ended. It truly is a phenomenal read. 

Pamela has also released a short story called The Wrong Path following other characters from the book. It can be found here  The Wrong Path


Pamela Humphrey was inspired to write after researching her genealogy. Intending to create a booklet for her mom and immediate family, she set about gathering stories and pictures of the Ramirez family. She ended up writing her first book, Researching Ramirez: On the Trail of the Jesus Ramirez Family, a family history of her great great grandfather’s family. During that research, she found a christening record that ignited her imagination. Using the documentation she’d found as a backbone for the story, she imagined what life was like for her ancestors and wrote The Blue Rebozo, a fictional account of her great grand aunt’s life. On a road trip, when driving through the Texas Hill Country, the landscape sparked the idea for her latest book. Weaving mystery, genealogy, and romance, she wrote Finding Claire. She is currently writing the next book in the Hill Country Secrets series. She is a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom who enjoys many creative outlets: sewing, paper-crafting, jewelry-making, practicing her bass guitar, reading, and conversing with imaginary characters (writing). She lives in San Antonio, Texas, with her husband, sons, black cats, and leopard gecko.
