#103: Forgotten - Catherine McKenzie (With Giveaway)

Emma Tupper is a dedicated lawyer with a bright future. But when she takes a month-long leave of absence to go on an African vacation, she ends up facing unexpected consequences. After she falls ill and spends six months trapped in a remote village thanks to a devastating earthquake, Emma returns home to discover that her friends, boyfriend, and colleagues thought she was dead—and that her life has moved on without her.
As she struggles to re-create her old life, throwing herself into solving a big case for a client and trying to reclaim her beloved apartment from the handsome photographer who assumed her lease, everyone around her thinks she should take the opportunity to change. But is she willing to sacrifice her job, her relationships, and everything else she worked so hard to build?
In Forgotten, Catherine McKenzie tweaks a classic tale of discovering who we really are when everything that brings meaning to our lives is lost.

MY OPINION:
Really good read, but that is exactly what I expected from this book. Having enjoyed Spin, another book of the author's, I knew I was up for great writing and storytelling. There were parts that you really felt for the main character. When a writer can make you feel emotion in that way, you know it's good. I couldn't tell you which book I like better, Spin or Forgotten, since they are both so different. I can say I enjoyed them both!

5/5

Recommend? Yes.
