Review: The Girl From the Sea by Shalini Boland

A woman washes up on the beach and is found by a woman walking her dog. She doesn’t know her name or how she got there…

This is how The Girl From the Sea by Shalini Boland begins.  When the CID (Criminal Investigation Department) gets a missing person’s report and, upon further investigation, determine it is a match. The woman is identified as Mia James by her boyfriend, Piers Bevan-Price.  Mia still has no memories but Piers tries to spark her memory when he brings her home by acting like nothing happened.  Mia is just not ready to return to “normal” because she can’t remember what “normal” is.
While Mia tries to rediscover her memories, she finds out that she loves rowing, she is extremely rich, and she is estranged from her mother and half sister.  Mia begins having a dream where a menacing woman comes towards her.  With Piers help, she figures out the the dream is set at the rowing club Mia belongs to.  She visits the rowing club to see if it will spark her memory and meets Jack, one of the rowing instructors.  She feels drawn to him as she feels like she and Piers are not meant to be together. As she and Jack get closer, more memories keep coming back until, finally, the truth behind what happened to Mia and the events leading up to this event are revealed.
