Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, a young woman defies all odds and survives—but she awakens with no idea who she is, or what happened to her. Refusing to answer to “Jane Doe” for another day, the woman renames herself “Water” for the tiny, hidden marking on her body—the only clue to her past. Water slowly begins building a new life. But as she attempts to piece together the fleeting slivers of her memory, more questions emerge: Who is the next-door neighbor, quietly toiling under the hood of his Barracuda? Why won’t Ginny let him step foot on her property? And why does Water feel she recognizes him?
This is possibly the best book I have "read" this year! I say "read" because technically I didn't read it, I listened to it, but it still counts! Burying Water is part of a companion series which has 4 books. Of course being the rebel that I am, I had only read books 3 and 4. Book 4 (Surviving Ice) was my favourite, until I read Burying Water.
I don't know how Tucker does it but she writes New Adult like no other! Every book I have read of hers has been gripping and full of suspense! I particularly liked Burying Water as it is told from the two different perspectives (Water and Jesse) but Water is telling the "now" story and Jesse is telling the "then" story. So as you're reading the book sort of unravels with plot twists everywhere! You would think that the story would be boring this way as you know the end result and what happened pretty early on, but it so isn't!
The romance aspect of it is also a bit different because you're seeing two different romances taking place, but with the same people. It's a little confusing but I liked seeing how their relationship developed both times.
I also highly recommend the audio book! The readers were really good and they really felt like their characters. The girl who read Water did annoy me at first, but I got used to her by the end and I couldn't imagine anyone else reading the part as well. I also think that the guy who read for Jesse did a really good job of portraying that character.
I don't have much else to say about it without giving the plot away, and I cannot think of one single bad thing I could say about it to be honest. The story was gripping from start to finish!
