Under My Skin

Summary: From New York Times bestselling author and master of suspense Lisa Unger comes an addictive psychological thriller about a woman on the hunt for her husband’s killer

What if the nightmares are actually memories?

It’s been a year since Poppy’s husband, Jack, was brutally murdered during his morning run through Manhattan’s Riverside Park. In the immediate aftermath, Poppy spiraled into an oblivion of grief, disappearing for several days only to turn up ragged and confused wearing a tight red dress she didn’t recognize. What happened to Poppy during those lost days? And more importantly, what happened to Jack?

The case was never solved, and Poppy has finally begun to move on. But those lost days have never stopped haunting her. Poppy starts having nightmares and blackouts–there are periods of time she can’t remember, and she’s unable to tell the difference between what is real and what she’s imagining. When she begins to sense that someone is following her, Poppy is plunged into a game of cat and mouse, determined to unravel the mystery around her husband’s death. But can she handle the truth about what really happened?

 

Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I LOVED the summary of the book. Thought it was exactly what I wanted and needed in books.

BUT….

This book is just not as good the summary makes it sound.

I was kinda intrigued by the main character blacking out- not knowing it it was memories, etc she was seeing.

But after reading and reading and reading and that happening multiple times- it became hard for me to tell what was real or imagined. And that can tire me out.

What I liked:

The cover.

The premise of the book. I was very intrigued by it!

When Poppy begins to figure things out.

 

Bottom line: It’s not a bad book- it’s got some good parts to it- but I felt that the really good parts came almost too late in the book.
