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.

BURYING WATER by K.A. Tucker is the first release in a brand new 2nd series of books. Best known for the Ten Tiny Breaths Series, I always wonder how hard it is for an amazing author to break away from what they have been writing and write something new. Ms. Tucker has done a really fabulous job.
Burying Water is written in two Points of View and shifted from past to the present. I found BURYING WATER to be not just a love story but a story of fate. When two people belong together, it happens and nothing, not even a lack of memories will get in the way of fate. I loved the back and forth between past and present and found the flow of the story really flawless. The only thing that I found fault in was that I had it all figured out very early on but the journey was still worth it. I wanted the very best for Water and Jesse and I wanted them to somehow find they way back to each other.
I also loved Ginny. This eccentric woman was amazing and made the story so believable. I love how she guided and nurtured in her grumpy way. We all need a Ginny in our lives.
All in all, I really enjoyed BURYING WATERS and would recommend it to everyone. There is some “darker” moments in book so be warned. I cannot wait for more of this series.
