Happy Release day to the phenomenal K.A. Tucker and Burying Water! This is the first book of her brand new series that is a deliciously suspenseful departure from her previous Ten Tiny Breaths series. 

Before I get to my review, let me tell you about the book:

Burying Water (Burying Water #1) by K.A. Tucker
Genre: New Adult Romantic Suspense
Publication Date: October 7th, 2014

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.

And now for my review:

Burying Water is a study in contrasts. It is a novel that quietly creeps its way into your heart, yet screams so loudly with the emotions it evokes. It is a story of being broken to the core, yet finding the resilience and strength to continue standing. It is the story of being lost, yet found.

Jane Doe is left for dead with no memory, no link to her past, and only a savagely broken body as evidence of a life she left behind: a life she desperately wants to remember, yet knows is better left forgotten.

With nowhere to go but forward, Jane names herself Water, a word that triggers and resonates something inside of her, and begins to rebuild her life with her doctor's family and curmudgeon of a neighbor. With each day that passes, and every memory that does not reveal itself...Water begins to resign herself to her fate until her doctor's son Jesse begins to show up, stirring up something deep inside her without her knowing why. It shows that even when memories are lost, the heart still remembers and can lead you home.

Burying Water seamlessly weaves between perspectives, between the past and the presence to culminate upon an intense moment of clarity whereby the two meet and everything snaps into focus.

While this book was an incredible departure from K.A. Tucker's Ten Tiny Breaths series, it is also an incredible example of her ability as a writer to craft a story so wickedly engaging, heart-wrenchingly raw, and endlessly beautiful that you, as the reader, become lost with the characters, then found, and then led back home.
