Blog Tour: Review of Under My Skin by Lisa Unger

Author: Lisa Unger
Publisher: October 2018
Date of publication: Park Row

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?

Finally, I have picked up a psychological thriller that was actually thrilling to read.  Under My Skin is the latest book from Lisa Unger.  I couldn't put this one down. The synopsis gives you a peek into the book and I don't want to elaborate more because I don't want to give away anything.  It's best not knowing much going into the book. What I thought was the best part of the book was the confusion I felt in the first half of the book.  The story is told from Poppy's point of view and she spends most of the first half drugged out and confused.  Like her, the reader begins to question what is real and what isn't.  But I promise, if you stick with the story, it will be worth it in the end.  I definitely recommend this one.  Ms. Unger is quickly becoming a favotire author of mine. Make sure to check it out!
