SynopsisIf you could do it all over again, would you still choose him?
At age thirty-nine, Lucie Walker has no choice but to start her life over when she comes to, up to her knees in the chilly San Francisco Bay, with no idea how she got there or who she is. Her memory loss is caused by an emotional trauma she knows nothing about, and only when handsome, quiet Grady Goodall arrives at the hospital does she learn she has a home, a career, and a wedding just two months away. What went wrong? Grady seems to care for her, but Lucie is no more sure of him than she is of anything. As she collects the clues of her past self, she unlocks the mystery of what happened to her. The painful secrets she uncovers could hold the key to her future—if she trusts her heart enough to guide her.
Fascinating description just pulled me right into reading. I thought the beginning was captivating, bringing you into Lucy's life but she doesn't know who she is and why she's standing knee deep in San Fransico Bay, the story is told through Lucy and Grady's (her finance) eyes. It's interesting how we learn about Lucy as Lucy is re learning about herself but we are learning her as she was in Grady's eyes and to me she didn't sound all that nice or likable. As the story continues these two can start a new or start over with who they are deep down and learn about themselves, even Grady can learn more about himself and realize things that weren't there before, these two have a do over almost as their relationship flourishes. Very interesting read, 4 stars
