Lisa Unger is one of my go to author's when I want a intriguing mystery/thriller. She did not disappoint with Under My Skin.
This is the story of recently widowed Poppy and the search for the truth behind her husband, Jack's murder.
Told in present, past and dreams/hallucinations it is confusing at times leaving the reader wondering what is reality and what is a dream. It all gets sorted out in the end giving us a very satisfying conclusion.
Well-written and riveting!
Thank you to NetGalley and Har ...more
I received a free e-copy of Under My Skin by Lisa Unger from Net Galley for my review.
An exciting and twisty psychological thriller that will keep you reading and wanting more.
I have enjoyed a few of Lisa Unger's novels and I was really looking forward to this one. This one is about Poppy, who is searching for her husband's killer.
It has been a year since her husband was murdered while on his morning jog, and Poppy is struggling to make sense of it. She is determined to get answers. As she dreams/has nightmares she can't seem to reconcile if they are actually "memories" of events that could be helpful in solving his murder. She is also downing sleeping pills that blu ...more
It's been a year since Poppy lost her husband, Jack, who was brutally murdered during a run through Manhattan's Riverside Park. She has never truly gotten over his death. And stranger still is the fact that Poppy disappeared after the funeral and later shows up in a tight red dress before collapsing. Poppy doesn't have a clue to what happened to her during those days, and the murder of Jack is still unsolved. Poppy is having nightmares and blackouts, and she has problems telling the difference b ...more
Under My Skin is about a woman who has lost her husband in a horrific crime one early morning while he was jogging. The story goes back and forth between the real time and her dreams but she can’t figure out what was real, what was a dream. I found myself getting confused many times during this book but I wanted to find out if they found the killer(s). I enjoyed this book and will look for more books written by Lisa Unger. Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to re ...more
Lisa Unger has written sixteen novels and it's a travesty that I have only read three of them. Because OMFG this was really good! It literally competed with waiting for the Quebec election results. Not an easy task since I love my politics. Also, whom ever is responsible for selecting book covers for Unger needs a nice vacation or a raise because suspense books shouldn't be this eye catching gorgeous but these definitely are.
No need to rehash the plot as it's quite well explained in the blurb. ...more
Talk about a book that will make your head spin!! I will admit for the first bit I was slightly confused but I think that’s mostly due to the fact the Unger is such a fantastic writer that she just drew me into the tangled web that is Poppy’s life so wholly. Once I caught on I was utterly hooked, and found myself totally caught up and invested in this one.
I haven’t so strongly felt a characters paranoia and unease since The Woman in the Window, I had similar feelings while reading this especiall ...more
