"Another addictive triumph for the impressively prosaic Tucker." (Globe and Mail)
“Tucker deftly steers the damsel-in-(serious, nearly fatal, possibly mob-related)-distress-rescued-by-a-knight-in-shining armor storyline, making these star-crossed lovers compelling. A sexy romantic, gangster-tinged page-turner.” (Kirkus Reviews)

About the Author

review K.A Tucker has fast become a favourite author of mine. Her Ten Tiny Breath series is absolutely fantastic and so when I heard she was writing a new series, I was over the moon and Burying Water was a great way to start the new series!
All Jane Doe knows is what she’s been told. She was beaten and left for dead in the middle of nowhere and she survived – but now she has no memories. She doesn’t remember anything from before and she doesn’t remember who did this to her. After spending three months in hospital, it’s time to leave to start a new life and with a new name – Water - after a tattoo on her body becomes the only thing she can remember. Now living with Ginny Fitzgerald, the old lady who makes quilts, Water starts to slowly rebuild her life and her attempts at remembering her past are slow coming. But the more time she spends with Jesse - the next door neighbour’s son, the more she feels at home with him. But who is Jesse really?
Jesse knows how much pain it will cause Water if she ever gets her memories back because Jesse's a big part of Water's past and he'll do anything from keeping her getting hurt again - even if that means staying away. But how can he stay away from the one girl he's ever loved?
I had a rocky start with Burying Water; I honestly thought I was going to have to give up. I was 40% through the story and not much had happened but I'm glad I stuck with it because the best was yet to come. Once I hit that 40% mark, the story moved along quickly and K.A Tucker really turned the story around and pulled off a great read!
The story is told from alternative narratives. We have Jesse telling the story from the past and Water telling the story from the present day.Read more ›
If you liked reading my honest opinion, please give me a vote so I can get closer to the top reviewers. Thank you.
As Water, she finds work, a home and friends she can call family.
But why can’t Water remember and does anyone near by know some of the answer?
Before we start let me warn you, Burying Water will flood your thoughts and emotions as every word within this intriguing New Adult read starts to consume you.
I foolishly started reading this before I went to bed and honestly once you’ve read the prologue, you can’t put this book down.
The harrowingly written prologue will pull you in and not let you go. K.A.Tucker allows the story to unfold beautifully and the events of past and present flow perfectly through the narratives of Jesse and Water.
Water was a wonderful character to discover, she deals with so much within the pages but carries on with a strength that is inspiring, I think some of that strength comes from being surrounded by a fantastic group of people.
From Meredith and Amber, her doctor and nurse duo who become firm friends to Ginny, the lady who opens her home to her.
I love Ginny, I love her feistiness and tenacity but Ginny isn’t the bitter old lady she comes across as, she’s someone battling her own demons and through helping Water we are able to dicover the real Ginny.
Then there’s Jesse, you will fall in love with Jesse through the eyes of Water and also through the past narrative he shares with you.
Jesse isn’t all good but admittedly, who is? What he is though is a character who will go to extreme measures for the ones he loves.Read more ›
The dual narrative alternates between Jesse and Jane Doe, while providing depth to the level of understanding; both characters take different time-frames – Jesse has before the incident while Jane Doe has the aftermath. An utterly brilliant writing technique on Kathleen’s part, intersecting events and characters. The use of symbolism plays a large part within the narrative adding thought provoking questions of a philosophical nature.
I won’t go into detail regarding the plot in this review because anything I tell you is going to spoil the story. Encompassing a high degree of personal growth bringing into question the innate nature of a person. For all of the unexpected turns life can take and the regrets they may lead to. Ultimately is it fate/karma that takes us to where we should be. The threads of fate/destiny weave there way through the story in so many ways, I especially liked the use of sensory memory to evoke emotions and connections *swoon*
Believe me when I say that you are going to love Burying Water, full of romance, symbolism, character growth and karma ;)
