The Girl I Used To Be –Coming 4/24/18

 

The Girl I Used To Be is a brilliant read, addicting, fast-paced, and unputdownable. I was hooked and transported into the story from the very first page. Once I started reading this book, I hated to have any interruptions. I was completely caught up in the story. 

Gemma Brogan worked hard at her real estate business. Her husband, Joe, was a stay at home father for their three-year-old son, Rory. Usually, Gemma didn’t mind being the only one working long hours, but when she noticed that her son, sought out his father, not her, whenever he was sick, or tired; it stung. Gemma didn’t want to say anything to Joe because they had both agreed on the arrangement. Gemma was under the impression, however, that it was only going to be a temporary thing, but Joe showed no interest in ever going back to work. 

When David, a distinguished and handsome man stepped into Gemma’s real estate office, Gemma couldn’t help but notice him. Not that she was interested. She wasn’t. Gemma loved Joe, even though she was irritated with his laziness and the fact that she was missing out on caring for her own son. Gemma was jealous of her husband and didn’t know what to do about it. 

The evening before her conference, Gemma planned to spend her hotel night, taking a relaxing bath, reading her kindle, and getting some much-needed sleep. Instead, she visited the lounge for a bit. When Gemma ran into David, the man who had captured her attention in the office, she was pleasantly surprised. So when he suggested dinner, Gemma readily agreed. What could an innocent dinner hurt? Gemma’s dinner, however, ended up being anything but innocent. In fact, it was the beginning of a never-ending nightmare. Gemma couldn’t sleep, concentrate or eat. She was in a constant state of anxiety. Gemma was about to lose everything, and she didn’t know how to stop her world from crumbling.

I was completely engrossed in this story. What a talented author Mary Torjussen is! I loved every page. This is the second book that I have read by this author, but it won’t be my last. Highly recommended.

Thank you, Berkley Publishing and Edelweiss, for my advanced review copy. I loved it!

Gone Without a Trace by Mary Torjussen

Gone without a trace

Complex, Brilliant and Riveting!

Don’t Miss- Gone Without a Trace-

I Absolutely Loved This Book!

Gone Without A Trace is a fast-paced, psychological thriller. I was intrigued and gripped from the first page until the last.

Hannah couldn’t wait to tell Matt, her great news. She was finally getting the promotion that she’d been aiming for. Everything was fabulous in her world until she got home.

Matt and all of his possessions were gone. Every picture, every suit, every DVD had disappeared. They loved each other. Hannah was sure of it. And, they were getting along well enough, or so she thought. Why would Matt leave and remove every trace of himself, from her life?

Hannah became obsessed with Matt. Her work began to slip, as well as her memory. She was snippy and unprofessional. Thankfully, Hannah had her best friend, Kate, to confide in. How could she tell anybody, that her boyfriend had left her, taking everything he owned, without even saying goodbye? It was humiliating. The life Hannah had so meticulously controlled, was now in shambles. Friends and work associates acted as if, she had lost her mind, and maybe she had. Hannah was having trouble discerning what was real and what was not. One thing Hannah knew, for sure, though, was that someone, was watching her every move, and she was terrified.

Gone Without A Trace is a superbly written, fast-paced thriller. The author’s brilliant plot twists, kept me captivated and flipping the pages, until the end. I found the book to be highly entertaining and impossible to put down.

Thank you, Berkley Publishing Group and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.
