Review: Under My Skin
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?
Under My Skin really did get under my skin. From the first page till just about the very last 10 pages, this story took me on a psychological and mental ride. Just when you think you've unraveled one piece of the mystery, four more pop up in its place - a never-ending tangled web of "what's going on?" and "what really happened!?"
This one took me a while to read because of the amount of information that I was required to process. I didn't want to miss any clues and although I feel like I was pretty accurate with my prediction of what happened, there were still pieces of it, most particularly the dream sequences, that had me scratching my head in confusion and thinking to myself, "what did I miss?".
I really enjoyed this!!
I received this book through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
