Publisher's Summary

A fast-paced, pause-resisting thriller that contemplates the consequences of motherhood, memory, and crime as a commodity.

Black ops specialist Aubrey Sentro may be one concussion away from death. But when pirates seize the cargo ship she’s on, she must decide whether to risk her life to save her fellow passengers. 

Sentro’s training takes over, and she’s able to elude her captors, leaving bodies in her wake. But her problems are just getting started. Her memory lapses are getting more frequent, symptoms of serial-concussion syndrome. 

As she plays a deadly game of cat and mouse with the pirates, she pushes herself to survive by focusing on thoughts of her children. She’s never told them what she really does for a living, and now she might not get the chance.

While her memories make her vulnerable, motherhood makes her dangerous.

The whole is greater than the sum of the parts

The narrator and the story each scored above 4 for me, but the combination put it around 4.6 or so. I'm definitely getting the next book.

Struggled Throughout

This was the last book that I started in 2021 and the first book that I finished in 2022, but darn it I sure wish I would have liked it more! When I read the blurb, I thought that I would really like this book, but I really had a hard time staying interesting and basically having to force myself to finish it! There have not been many books (if any) that I've NEVER finished, but this one came close.

The premise of this book sounded so good, and I liked Aubrey Sentro as a character, I just felt bored by the story. It leaves me wavering on if I would try book #2 or not, but I was interested in Sentro enough as a character, that I would maybe give it a shot! I haven't read Book #2's description yet so I can't say for sure, but I won't adamantly refuse to read it based on the first book.

I felt that the story just lacked something and was a bit repetitive. I've never really been one to jump towards a story about Pirates so maybe that's what put me off a bit, but the story did have a good bit of action and adventure, which I would say saved it, for me. That's probably what helped me give it a solid 3 stars rather than less.

Water Memory is narrated by Christine Traister. She is one of my favorite narrators, so that's probably a lot of the reason I thought I might really like this book. She's also a good part of the reason I gave this book 3 stars and not less. A narrator can make or break a book, that's for sure, she for me, she helped save this book a little bit!

Overall, I was really disappointed that THIS was the last book of 2021 and first book of 2022. I was hoping to have a much more exciting read to tell you about! I won't completely dismiss this author and/or series yet though!

not worth it

This book was terrible because it didn't keep my attention and it just didn't feel as exciting as the other reviews madd it out to be.

Disappointing -- Weak plot

The writing wasn't bad, but the plot had some huge holes -- like the ransom money which presumably got paid, but then was never mentioned when the kidnap victim wasn't returned.

Brilliant

Great action story, enjoyable, surprising and not predictable at all. I thoroughly recommend this book.
