ARC review: Love Water Memory by Jenni Shortridge

I gratefully received an advance reader's copy of this novel from Net Galley and Gallery books. The expected publication date of this novel is April 2, 2013.
Who is Lucie Walker? Even Lucie herself can’t answer that question after she comes to, confused and up to her knees in the chilly San Francisco Bay. Back home in Seattle, she adjusts to life with amnesia, growing unsettled by the clues she finds to the selfish, carefully guarded person she used to be.
This insomniac's opinion:
I loved this novel. The characters were very realistic in their imperfection. The mystery of Lucie's past is slowly and believably unraveled throughout the novel. There was much to love about this novel. What I loved the most was the very idea of losing all of your memories and how post-amnesia Lucie was completely different from pre-amnesia Lucie. It had me thinking- how much of my personality is a product of my experiences and memories and how much is innate? Without my memories, who would I be? It is something that I had never before thought of, and I found myself fascinated with the thought.
Worth staying up all night to read?
Yes, and I sure did!
Rating: 4 stars
