(136)Forgotten by Catherine McKenzie

Forgotten 

Publication Date: October 16, 2012
Pages: 448


Emma Tupper is shell-shocked when her mother passes away after an illness, like anyone would be, obviously.  But she is even more shocked when her mother's last wish is for Emma to take a trip to Africa in her honor.  After finally getting law firm to approve the month off, she goes to Africa. Only to fall sick and become "trapped" by an earthquake.

Six months later, Emma is finally returning to civilization only to discover that everyone thought she was dead.  Her bank accounts have been closed, her apartment has been rented by a very handsome man named Dominic, and her mortal enemy, Sophie has not only taken her job, but her boyfriend.  Slowly as she tries to piece her life back together Emma starts to realize that maybe starting over is the best thing that could have happened to her!

Catherine McKenzie is such a talented writer!  I thoroughly enjoyed her first book, Spin, I bought (but have not read) her second book, and JUMPED at the chance to read her third book, Forgotten. I am so glad that I did.  Emma Tupper is a sweet character at a crossroads in her life, by no fault of her own and she is not sure which way to go.  Right back to the life that she was living or improve her life by switching jobs, boyfriends, and apartments.  I enjoyed everything about Emma. Her feelings about her situation really translated well to the reader, my heart ached for her.  I also really enjoyed the relationship between her and her best friend, especially the way her entire family enveloped Emma at Christmas, it was really heartwarming.

Bottom line, Forgotten is an enjoyable book on so many levels.  The characters, the scenery, the level of conflict that Emma faced.  It all joined together to make Forgotten an unforgettable novel.  (HaHa! See what I did there....) Be sure to pick it up today and let me know what you think.

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
