Unforgettable - Elise K. Ackers
Okay, let's deal with the elephant in the room upfront. Can amnesia be anything other than a tired old dramatic ploy?


I won't give you spoilers, but I loved how Elise Ackers used Connor's amnesia to set up a drama that showed you other people's reactions to their relatioship as well as his and Emma's. Not that the spotlight was ever off the couple -- the romance was too strong, the pace too intense -- but we saw different aspects of the situation. We saw their beliefs challenged.

Moreover, the setting was so real it added to the tension. Emma and Connor's work lives were portrayed with a detail (though never heavy handed) that made you believe.

Unforgettable is a great Aussie romance.
