When I receive advance review copies of books, I normally try to post the reviews on the day the books hit store shelves. But I just can't contain myself when it comes to Lisa Unger's new book In the Blood. The book doesn't come out until January 2014, but this is definitely one that you'll want to put on your to-read list, so get ready!
Lana Granger is a college student who takes a babysitting job to make some extra money before graduation. The boy she's babysitting is troubled, but Lana, who also has a mysterious troubled past, thinks she can handle him. Or maybe he's really "handling" her. Then, one of Lana's friends goes missing, and the past that Lana has tried to hide slowly comes out into the open, which is exactly what someone wants to happen. But who?
This is a book that you'll read and think you know what's going on, but by the time you're 75 percent through the book, you'll realize that everything you thought you knew is completely wrong. Oh man, oh man. This is a page-turner, for sure. Make this the first book you read in 2014.
In the Blood is published by Touchstone and will be available to purchase January 7, 2014. I received a free autographed advance review copy at Book Expo America with no obligation to review.
