The Lost Girls of Johnson's Bayou - Jana DeLeon (HI #1331 - Feb 2012)

She was only six when she walked out of the swamp after the LeBlanc School for Girls caught on fire. Sixteen years after the terrifying night that stole her memory, a child's scream lures Ginny back into the woods...where a strong arm encircles her. The gun-wielding stranger is Paul Stanton, a cop-turned-P.I., who's come to Johnson's Bayou looking for answers of his own.

Paul has spent almost two decades searching for his missing sister and now, this Southern beauty could be the key to his quest. But someone would rather see Ginny dead than have her memories resurface. And although uncovering the dark secrets of the past could put them both at risk, it's a chance Paul's willing to take if it means finding his future...with Ginny.

Good book, pretty creepy.  Ginny's memory loss has never improved - until recently.  She decided to do something about it, by going back to the school to see if she could remember anything.  When she runs into Paul, he saves her from discovery.  When he hears her story, and tells her his own, they realize that there is definitely something wrong.  And when someone starts attacking Ginny, Paul vows to keep her safe until they get to the bottom of the mystery.  I really liked the way they worked out the parts of the mystery.  The romance was good, and felt real to me.
