For Clementine Haas, finding herself is more than a nice idea. Ever since she woke up in an Irish hospital with complete amnesia, self-discovery has become her mission.
They tell her she’s the lone survivor of a plane crash. They tell her she’s lucky to be alive. But she doesn’t feel lucky. She feels…lost.
With the relentless Irish press bearing down on her, and a father she may not even recognize on his way from America to take her home, Clementine assumes a new identity and enlists a blue-eyed Irish stranger, Kieran O’Connell, to help her escape her forgotten life…and start a new one.
Hiding out in the sleepy town of Waterville, Ireland, Clementine discovers there’s an upside to a life that’s fallen apart. But as her lies grow, so does her affection for Kieran, and the truth about her identity becomes harder and harder to reveal, forcing Clementine to decide: Can she leave her past behind for a new love she’ll never forget.
I received a free eARC copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review
When I saw this book on Netgalley I thought the cover was really cute. This book turned out to be such a cute fun read. I flew through it in just two sittings, I couldn’t put it down. The book is set in ireland which gave this story bonus points from me. I love reading about foreign countries, there not a setting used as often as it should be.
The main character Clementine, it was interesting to be inside her head, as she has no memories of who she is. She essentially gets to start over and find out who she is. I love how brave she is, trying new things that scares her. Kieran was a sweetheart, and is really swoon worthy. He is caring and loves to help people, helps that he’s also irish :’)
The last 50 pages or so were very intense and a lot of tings were wrapped up nicely, but maybe a second book could happen fingers crossed.
This book will be released January 30 2018, if you like cute fluffy contemporaries i highly recommend you pick this one up.
