I washed ashore in a little lake town.
A place where everyone knows everyone, yet…
No one knows me.
I don’t know me.
If a woman doesn’t know her own name, does she really exist?
I don’t know my natural hair color, my birthdate, or where I live.
I am invisible.
To everyone, to everything, even to myself.
Except to him.
I see the recognition deep in his stare, the way it lingers on my face as if I’m a puzzle he’s desperate to put together.
I just want answers, the truth… knowledge.
His lips are sealed. Still, his eyes beguile me.
I can’t trust anyone, not even myself. Someone wants me dead, the same someone who tried to bury me in a watery grave.
They’ll come for me again… I won’t know their face.
I don’t even know mine.
I am amnesia.

I love a good memory loss story – the mysteries surrounding it and a character’s journey of starting over while trying to figure out the person they used to be is all very intriguing! With a romance thrown in I knew Amnesia would be something worth checking out!

Amnesia tells the story of a girl washed to shore, the man who finds her, and the connection between them that seems familiar because it quite possibly could be… I must say the beginning immediately pulled me in. I wanted to know who this girl was and what had happened to her. Of course she has zero memory after awakening from a coma and with no one coming forward to claim who she was, she decided to call herself Amnesia. Edward was also a bit mysterious with hints of a tragic past also in need of unraveling. He was very enamored with her from the beginning and though he had all sorts of questions needing answers on who she could be, he let her set her own pace with her memories.

The book started off strong in the beginning and my interest sort of waned a bit the farther I got into it. I loved the whole mystery of who Amnesia was and what happened to her and that was the most interesting aspect of the novel for me. The romance felt a little cheesy at times and though I found Eddie to be super sweet and caring towards Amnesia, he was sometimes annoying with how overbearing he could get. Some plot points really worked and some parts were a little over the top with a need to suspend a little disbelief. Overall I found it to be a decent read that I think others may enjoy as well.

I didn’t realize there would be a sequel when I started it so though certain details and plot points had some resolution and clarity, there are still pieces of the puzzle that remain missing that the sequel will have to answer. I’m intrigued enough to continue with the series.

Sometimes the only thing your ears hear is the words whispered by your heart. Sometimes the only truth you want to hear is a beautiful lie.

    I remember seeing Cambria Hebert’s name everywhere, a few years ago! I never read one of her books though. I love a good romance that really dig into the relationship of the couple. It’s always annoying when you think a book is a standalone and it isn’t! But hopefully you enjoy the sequel.

    Lovely review, Sara! Have a great day. =)
