Review: Burying Water by K.A. Tucker

Goodreads Summary:

The top-selling, beloved indie author of Ten Tiny Breaths returns with a new romance about a young woman who loses her memory—and the man who knows that the only way to protect her is to stay away.

Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, a young woman defies all odds and survives—but she awakens with no idea who she is, or what happened to her. Refusing to answer to “Jane Doe” for another day, the woman renames herself “Water” for the tiny, hidden marking on her body—the only clue to her past. Taken in by old Ginny Fitzgerald, a crotchety but kind lady living on a nearby horse farm, Water slowly begins building a new life. But as she attempts to piece together the fleeting slivers of her memory, more questions emerge: Who is the next-door neighbor, quietly toiling under the hood of his Barracuda? Why won’t Ginny let him step foot on her property? And why does Water feel she recognizes him?

Twenty-four-year-old Jesse Welles doesn’t know how long it will be before Water gets her memory back. For her sake, Jesse hopes the answer is never. He knows that she’ll stay so much safer—and happier—that way. And that’s why, as hard as it is, he needs to keep his distance. Because getting too close could flood her with realities better left buried.

The trouble is, water always seems to find its way to the surface.

I liked Burying Water. I enjoy books that deal with memory loss and a main character trying to discover the mysteries of her past. I think I preferred the chapters told from Jane Doe/Water’s point of view over Jesse’s, but I liked how the author weaved the dual narrative together.

Burying Water starts out with a brutal attack and it made me really feel for Jane Doe/Water. I liked that Water was a fighter and didn’t wallow in pity despite being left for dead and waking up with no memory of her past. She tries to make the best out of her situation and begin a new life. In Jesse’s chapters, we find out his connection to Water and how she ended up in her broken state.

The pace at the start and end was good, but I felt like the middle dragged a bit. I think the reveal came too early and took away from the suspense. However, I was still curious whether Water would remember her past and if she could escape it.

K.A. Tucker is a wonderful writer and I did feel the characters’ emotions jump off the pages. The plot of this book wasn’t my favorite, but I’d still check out the follow-up featuring other characters introduced in the novel.

Rating: 4/5 Stars

Thanks to the publisher for a copy of the novel for review!
