Under Your Skin
In Under Your Skin, Kyle’s wife, Hannah, goes missing. He calls the police and begins organizing search parties, which is where he meets Julia. While the search continues and the police are following leads, Julia and Kyle are getting closer. Julia can’t help but wonder why this man, whose wife has been missing for only two days, is spending so much time with her. Someone knows where Hannah is and Julia is starting to see a side of Kyle that makes her question how much he really knows. It begs the question; how well do we ever really know a person? And what do we do when we find out the worst?
I wouldn’t say this book was terrible, but it wasn’t super great either. It was obvious where Hannah was by chapter five and that’s not saying much since each chapter is two pages long. The book is so short with so many characters that it keeps switching back and forth between that you can’t really get to know any of them super well. The plot is also very similar to at least five other books that I’ve read. The most similar being Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris which I would highly recommend. Overall, if you are running out of books to read as summer ends, then by all means check this one out. Otherwise, I would recommend the same plot, but with some better storytelling.
