Waking up with a strange man is scary. Realizing you lost fifteen years of your life overnight? That’s terrifying. With her memories from seventeen to thirty-two gone, Kate has no idea who she is and where she belongs. As she begins to fall for the man who found her, she wonders if she forgot those years for a reason. Should she keep trying to retrieve her original self, or start a new life?
This was the first book I read by Heather, but it definitely won’t be the last. It was fun and exciting and very light hearted. It was also a clean romance with a very casual Canadian setting.
I love how casually it was set in Canada. Canadian settings still seem to be fairly rare, and quite often they are pointed out with big flaming arrows. But this book was very smooth about it and let the setting stay in the background with the story front and centre.
I thought Kate was an interesting character. She doesn’t remember anything after age 17, but she doesn’t seem like a teenager. She seems exactly like what she is: an adult woman with missing memories. Her whole persona, and the book in general, had a grown-up feeling that was still very refreshing.
The love story was almost like a love triangle, but more like a 1-2-1 progression. It was more realistic, and sweet to read.
Overall, I really liked this story. It was chick lit at its finest. This book makes for a quick and easy read that it just perfect for putting a smile on your face.
