Crash & Burn (Tessa Leoni #3)

CRASH & BURN (TESSA LEONI #3)                 LISA GARDNER

Crash & Burn (Tessa Leoni, #3)My name is Nicky Frank. Except, most likely, it isn’t. 

Nicole Frank shouldn’t have been able to survive the car accident, much less crawl up the steep ravine. Not in the dark, not in the rain, not with her injuries. But one thought allows her to defy the odds and flag down help: Vero.

I’m looking for a little girl. I have to save her. Except, most likely, she doesn’t exist. 

Sergeant Wyatt Foster is frustrated when even the search dogs can’t find any trace of the mysterious missing child. Until Nicky’s husband, Thomas, arrives with a host of shattering revelations: Nicole Frank suffers from a rare brain injury and the police shouldn’t trust anything she says.

My husband claims he’ll do anything to save me. Except, most likely, he can’t.

Who is Nicky Frank, and what happened the night her car sailed off the road? Was it a random accident or something more sinister given the woman’s lack of family and no close friends? The deeper Wyatt digs, the more concerned he becomes. Because it turns out, in the past few months, Nicky has suffered from more than one close accident. . . . In fact, it would appear someone very much wants her dead.

This is my life. Except, most likely, it’s not. Now watch me crash and burn.
 

HUBBY'S REVIEW:
This was a good book but it did take me awhile to get into the story. I put the book down three times after reading about a chapter each time and then I just picked it back up and thought it has to pick up. I must say after I hit the 50% mark the story line that the author had started did just that and all of the different characters that were being described earlier were now able to flow free and the story took a whole different and a much new and exciting pace full of twists and turns not knowing what to expect on the next page. For example you don’t know if the main character’s husband is really trying to kill her or not until you get almost to the end. For that matter the main character is not who you think she is either. Once you thought you have everything figured out you don’t and that makes for a good story. There are many little side stories that go along with the main story some help the story along and one is about the lead detective and his girlfriend and her fears and how they work through them together. I think really for both them and the lead character it is working through the past in order to have a future. It is a good book and I am sure it is just me for what took place at the beginning of the book. An exciting book with a good mystery. I got this book from net galley.  I give this 4 stars.
