    "I have always found that authors that are from the Pacific Northwest are able to capture something special in their writing that others are unable to. With Love Water Memory, I was able to experience that feeling once again with the wonderfully detailed story written about a woman who cannot remember things in her life. "

    "I felt that this plot in this book was a little lackluster, for all of it's hype. I think Pacific Northwest authors is a broad category and this just isn't one of the best. "
