Book Review: Die for you Lisa Unger 4/5 Stars

Overview: Isabel Raines is an author, and happily married to Marcus Raines living in New York City. Problem is Marcus Raines is not who he says he is, throwing Isabel’s life into chaos. Everywhere she turns a dead body appears as she chases after her “husband.” After a head injury and two hospital visits, on the lead of a dying man, she heads to Prague with best friend and marketing agent Jack. Hoping to find Marcus, she visits the orphanage where he grew up and lands in the man’s clutches. Making a daring escape, and being shot, she is given many answers to her unending questions but never the answer burning inside her since the day her father died “why?”

Opinion: I love it, but kind of didn’t like it at the same time. For instance, because we jump between Isabel, her sister Linda, the cop on the case and sometimes Marcus and a few others; the point of views get jumbled and it is hard to figure out who we are following. Then because of all the POV’s we get a ton of back story for each character. While everything comes out in the wash, I think that a few things would have been best left out. That would help move the story along faster and maybe not leave the feeling of being rushed in the ending. I mean it took close to 300 pages just for Isabel to finally make progress. Other than that, the story was good and kept you very interested.

Recommend: YES

I'm an author with an associate's in psychology. Interested in a lot of different things, and love controversy. The more controversial the better, but that's not all I'm interested in. Can be a bit confusing at times, but that's normal!
