Overview

The highly anticipated start of a new romantic suspense series from the beloved, USA Today bestselling author of Ten Tiny Breaths.

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. Taken in by old Ginny Fitzgerald, a crotchety but kind lady living on a nearby horse farm, 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?

Twenty-four-year-old Jesse Welles doesn’t know how long it will be before Water gets her memory back. For her sake, Jesse hopes the answer is never. He knows that she’ll stay so much safer—and happier—that way. And that’s why, as hard as it is, he needs to keep his distance. Because getting too close could flood her with realities better left buried.

The trouble is, water always seems to find its way to the surface.

    IN BETWEEN

    A fire.

    The fragrance calls to me.

    I cannot see, for my eyes are sealed shut against the wicked glow in his stare.

    I cannot hear, for my ears have blocked out his appalling promises.

    I cannot feel, for my body has long since shattered.

    But, as I lie in the cool stillness of the night, waiting for my final peace, that comforting waft of burning bark and twigs and crispy leaves encases me.

    It whispers to me that everything will be okay.

    And I so desperately long to believe it.

    Beep . . .

    “. . . basilar skull fracture . . .”

    Beep . . .

    “. . . collapsed lung . . .”

    Beep . . .

    “. . . ruptured spleen . . .”

    Beep . . .

    “. . . frostbite . . .”

    Beep . . .

    Beep . . .

    “Will she live?”

    Beep . . .

    “I honestly don’t know how she has survived this long.”

    Beep . . .

    “We need to keep this quiet for now.”

    “Gabe, you just showed up on the doorstep of my hospital with a half-dead girl. How am I supposed to do that?”

    “You just do. Call me if she wakes up. No one questions her but me. No one, Meredith.”

    “Don’t try to talk yet,” someone—a woman—warns softly. I can’t see her. I can’t see anything; my lids open to mere slits, enough to admit a haze of light and a flurry of activity around me—gentle fingertips, low murmurs, papers rustling.

    And then that rhythmic beep serenades me back into oblivion.
