This is the first K A Tucker book that I’ve read even though I’ve had her Ten Tiny Breaths series lingering on my ‘To Read’ shelf for uite a while Now I know what I’ve been missing out on This lady can tell a storyBurying Water was emotional angsty and suspenseful This was one of those stories that kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time waiting for the other shoe to drop When the inevitable finally happened I still managed to be surprised at how things worked out Yes Ms Tucker did a good job of not revealing all of her secrets until the endIt would be hard to get into too much about the storyline and characters without ruining this great story I’ll just say that they were well written and the story captured my attention immediately and held it until the very end I think the blurb does a pretty good job of telling you what the book is about without giving it all away I think I’d spoil it if I divulged than that Sorry It did take me a little patience to get used to flipping back and forth between present time and “then” as much of the story is told through flashbacks However in the end I could appreciate how this actually added to the story and allowed key parts to be revealed when it would further the storyline I know a lot of people can’t handle any abuse or violence so be forewarned there is abuse and violence in this book Ditto for love trianglescheating If either of these themes is a “no no” for you then you probably aren’t going to like this book If your mindset like mine is closer to “the salacious the better” then you’ll probably really enjoy this one like I did Another side note I listened to the Audible version for a large part of the story alternating between the Kindle version and the audiobook The narration was great for this book I've found that's hard to come by so thought I'd mention it for those of you that listen as well as read


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 awayLeft 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?. 5 Stars Burying Water is nothing like the last KA Tucker book I read Five Ways to Fall but it was eually as wonderful of a story What would it be like to wake up in a hospital bed You have no idea where how you got there or even who you are Then you find out the extent of your horrific injuries You’re lucky to be alive That’s exactly what happened to our ‘Jane Doe’ Thankfully she has a compassionate doctor with a daughter for a nurse and a sheriff for a husband who take her under their wing They treat her like family and try to help her heal The Welles family is a godsend They also have a son who lives in the big city but visits on weekends Jesse ‘Jane Doe’ finally is released from the hospital She still has no memories of her life and has no where to go Thankfully the Welle’s secluded and grouchy old neighbor Ginny Fitzgerald lets her stay with her She gets the chance to start over To start fresh from a life she doesn’t remember but must have been traumatic Not being able to stand the name ‘Jane’ any longer she choses a new name A new identity She’s now ‘Water’ Water slowly starts to make a life for herself in the small town of Sisters As time goes on she starts to get the smallest of glimpses into her former life Little things but nothing she can really piece together Water finds a job grows close to Ginny who doesn’t let anyone in and stays in touch with the Welles family As of her memories resurface she becomes confused And then there is Jesse The neighbor who has mostly stayed away from her For some reason she is drawn to Jesse There is something about him Something familiar Even though she hasn’t spent much time with him she senses there is something about him that she can trust Something tells me Jesse is the kind of guy that I can always count on My gut must be telling me that I had someone just like him in my previous life Someone I trusted The plot of Burying Water was complex and the story line a little twisted I loved the dual pov Jesse’s perspective from the past and ‘Water’s from the present The past was leading up to the present and you just knew something big was getting ready to happen I loved the originality of Water’s story I’ve read about characters with amnesia before but something about this story was just different in the best way Water was a great heroine Resilient That is the best word to describe her And Jesse was amazing I don’t want to go much into detail about his character but I loved him There were many incredible secondary characters as well Jesse’s parents and sister were great Even his friend Boone I liked most of the time And of course I had a soft spot for Ginny Fitzgerald KA Tucker can write I’ve read every book of hers and she’s proven that time and time again There was something special about this story something different It was fast paced suspenseful heart wrenching and the way everything was woven together was incredible I loved the concept of starting fresh rediscovering who you are And watching how everything came to a close was wonderful I was engrossed the entirety of Water’s story This is definitely one I would recommend


Burying WaterEel she recognizes himTwenty 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 buriedThe trouble is water always seems to find its way to the surfac. DNF 45% so no rating I reuested an ARC for this because I loved KA Tucker's Ten Tiny Breaths series 15% in I got that sinking feeling that this book might not be for me I was bored Typically I don't mind slow moving plots In fact some of my fave reads started off slow But alas I didn't find the characters compelling enough to compensate for the slow moving plot So better to cut my losses and call it a day There are too many books on my TBR to dwell on something that I might end up hating That said I will still read another book from this author because despite what transpired here I do love her other books An ARC was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
