On The Nightstand: Forgotten by Catherine McKenzie

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.---GoodReads

LOVED it! Catherine McKenzie has easily become my new favorite author because all of her stories are so unique. As the first book on my summer reading list, I was looking for a real page turner and Forgotten definitely did not disappoint. I just couldn't wait to see how Emma's life turned out, and all the bumps along the way only made the story that much more interesting. I can not wait for McKenzie's new book, as I am sure it will be just as good as the first three.
