Reviewed on Lili Lost in a Book

Two strangers wake up naked in bed with no recollection of how they got there. In fact, they don’t even know who they are! As they unravel the mystery, they figure out that they live in the picture perfect town of Summer Falls.

...general laid-back vacation culture has led to tourists comparing visiting the town to being high on a pleasant and relaxing drug...

Except it’s too perfect. Summer Falls is a conflict-free place where nothing bad ever happens, and where the weather is always nice and the people are all attractive and always healthy—they’re perfect. But it’s perfection that comes at a cost.

I loved how creative and original this story was and the unique way magic and ghosts were incorporated into it. It was just very cool! I also liked the mystery behind Elyse and Marshall’s identity, why their amnesia happened in the first place, what the heck is going on in this picture perfect place with it’s Summer Falls Effect, heatnaps, and ghosts.

The heatnaps were an interesting concept. As a tourist town, it is actually known for it’s heatnaps that happen spontaneously at any time of day/evening and during any season. But the people here can be quite forgetful. You could say they have memory gaps... suspicious...

Finding out what was behind all this and figuring out how the ghosts and magic tied in... Wow! It was just amazing! I really loved the concept of this book! I loved this world! It was very interesting and unique! As for the characters, I really liked Elyse and Marshall! I actually kind of hated their former selves, you know, before the amnesia. So glad the were better people this second time around.

Anyway, I really recommend this one!
