Review: "Blank Slate Kate" by Heather Wardell + Free Book for Kindle!!!!

Kate wakes up one morning in a strange bed with a strange half-naked man. That in itself is scary, but as she realizes that she's lost her memories of the past 15 years of her life her fear elevates to terror. Kate has no idea who she is and absolutely no clue what has happened in the past years. She remembers being 17 and then she wakes up the next day and she's suddenly 32 with no idea of what brought her to where she is. With the help of the handsome man that Kate woke up next to, Jake, Kate is able to piece together a bit of the previous night but her other memories remain elusive. As Kate starts to fall for Jake she begins to wonder if she lost those 15 years for a reason, and if perhaps some memories are better left forgotten.

Blank Slate Kate quickly became one of my favourite Heather Wardell novels. The mystery contained within the pages was tantalizing. As the reader we have only the information that Kate has, so we have no idea about her past and what brought her to be where she is today. As Kate manages to piece together a few things about her past we find out a little more about her and I loved the slow reveal. I especially enjoyed waiting to find out the mystery behind "Bubbly Words". Kate has an iPhone and the locked area in her "Bubbly Words" game remains stubbornly closed to her as she can't remember how she set up the security in the first place. As Kate comes closer and closer to being able to unlock that area I was at the edge of my seat in anticipation. I couldn't wait to see what information the locked area contained!

The ending was fabulous as well, especially as it didn't end in the way that I thought that it would. Wardell kept me wondering how things would end, and I was happy and pleasantly surprised with the direction that she chose.

I can't think of anything that bothered me about Blank Slate Kate. It was interesting and the plot flowed smoothly, the mystery surrounding Kate was fun to uncover and the ending was a pleasant surprise. I can highly recommend this to fans of women's fiction, and it's a steal at only $0.99. My thanks to the author for providing me with this copy for review.

For a limited time Heather's book Seven Exes Are Eight Too Many is available for free for the Kindle! This will only be free until January 27th, so hurry!
