Lexi: As a reader who prefers to stick to paranormal, sci-fi, fantasy type books, this contemporary really blew me out of the water. And it is labeled NA to boot! Burying Water was well written, had intriguing characters and a bit of a mystery that kept the pages turning. What was your overall impression of Burying Water?
Crystal: Burying Water was a powerful, heart-wrenching story that I simply could not put down! This is the kind of story I love, and Tucker did not disappoint.
Lexi: Burying Water had an interesting blurb, a young woman left for dead is rescued but has no recollection of her past. The true restart to life. Only her past will not stay buried and you get to discover her history and the truth about what happened to her chapter by chapter. Tucker handled this very cleverly, the chapters traded between the past and present. This delivery was great, it gave tidbits of info and then presented more questions. Did you like the back and forth chapters too?
Lexi: More than the chapter layout, I appreciated the well rounded characters. Water is as much a mystery to us as she is to herself, yet you want to know about her and what happened to her so badly. Jesse, the young man with secrets and answers. You get to see his POV and his feelings in the flashback chapters, giving you his view of the woman Water and making you fall in love with both of them. The villain of the story is scary, and the old rancher, Ginny Fitzgerald, is cantankerous but heartwarming. I don’t think I have a favorite! Can you pick one?
Lexi: The only let down came near the end. There was build up surrounding the event that put Water into her amnesic state, and then Tucker resolved that conflict without the main characters having to do a single thing about it! It was very convenient and a bit of a let down, throughout the book you kept expecting a big confrontation or a fantastic chase. Neither happened. Yes this is vague, but it is a big part of the story and spoilers are not part of the review. Unless you bring us more wine. How was the ending for you?
Lexi: Overall this book is worth raising a wine glass for, I couldn’t put it down and I will certainly read more from this author. *looks over with eyebrows raised in question*
