What are you reading? 

What are you reading? 

I am reading Nelumbo Nuciferia by Cristina Slough.  This is my first book by this author.  I love new to me authors. This book has pulled me in from the first chapter and would not let me go.

I started reading this book before I realized I had to review Almost Wonderful by Christie Ridgway, which I had finished in one setting and that review will be up sometime tonight. 

Here is a brief description of Nelumbo Nuciferia from Goodreads:

On the surface, Gaby Parker has it all; however, behind closed doors, is a woman who lives in constant fear of the man who was supposed to love her: her husband, Kyle. Beaten, desperate, and broken, Gaby realizes the only way to escape from her violent husband is to kill herself — on paper. Gaby is dead, and Riley Locklin is born, residing in the tranquil coastal town of Chesswick Bay Montauk where she hopes to start over and meets a man who shows her bruises aren't kisses.

Meanwhile, back home, Kyle is doing everything in his power to prove Gaby isn’t dead.

But…police find her burnt-out car and remains?

Kyle isn’t buying it; he knows she’s still alive. He launches his own full investigation to find his wife — and he’ll stop at nothing to claim her back. A female Detective assigned to his wife’s case doesn’t like him very much after discovering a domestic violence report - scorned by the history of her mother’s domestic abuse, she’s determined to send Kyle down for his wife’s murder.

And then he finds her. Will Gaby finally take a stand?

This book contains themes that some readers may find disturbing. Contains possible triggers.

For every copy of this book sold 10p will be donated to The Katie Piper Foundation:

Happy Reading!
