If you could do it all over again, would you still choose him? At age thirty-nine, Lucie Walker has no choice but to start her life over when she comes to, up to her knees in the chilly San Francisco Bay, with no idea how she got there or who she is. Her memory loss is caused by an emotional trauma she knows nothing about, and only when handsome, quiet Grady Goodall arrives at the hospital does she learn she has a home, a career, and a wedding just two months away. What went wrong? Grady seems to care for her, but Lucie is no more sure of him than she is of anything. As she collects the clues of her past self, she unlocks the mystery of what happened to her. The painful secrets she uncovers could hold the key to her future—if she trusts her heart enough to guide her.

I really enjoyed this story, it  was different from my usual style, but I'm glad I signed up to read this one.

The story starts with Lucy "coming to" knee deep in water. She has no idea how she got there and no idea of who she is. Luckily there are people near and help her out of the near freezing water. She is hospitalized and has no recollection of how she ended up in the water, or where she came from. Her story is covered on the news, and soon a fiancé comes to take her home. But, how does she know he really is her fiancé?

Grady doesn't know how to act, he was glad when he saw her face on the news, but so upset that she doesn't know him. 
He feels bad because of the day she disappeared, they had fought. And once he realizes that she doesn't remember, he feels like it's a good thing she doesn't remember the fight.

Once they get home, Grady realizes how much this Lucy is different from "his" Lucy. He loves her and tries to do right by her but he keeps doing the opposite of what she needs.

Things from Lucy's past reappear and you finally get a glimpse of why she was the type of person who was "unfriendly". Will Grady be able to love this new version of Lucy?

This story was beautifully written with twists and turns I didn't expect. It wasn't super angsty, and had a beautiful love story in the end. Well worth the read!
