Nelumbo Nucifera by Cristina Slough REVIEW

On the surface, Gaby Parker has it all; however, behind closed doors, is a woman who lives in constant fear of the man who was supposed to love her: her husband, Kyle. Beaten, desperate, and broken, Gaby realizes the only way to escape from her violent husband is to kill herself — on paper. Gaby is dead, and Riley Locklin is born, residing in the tranquil coastal town of Chesswick Bay Montauk where she hopes to start over and meets a man who shows her bruises aren't kisses.

Meanwhile, back home, Kyle is doing everything in his power to prove Gaby isn’t dead.

But…police find her burnt-out car and remains?

Kyle isn’t buying it; he knows she’s still alive. He launches his own full investigation to find his wife — and he’ll stop at nothing to claim her back. A female Detective assigned to his wife’s case doesn’t like him very much after discovering a domestic violence report - scorned by the history of her mother’s domestic abuse, she’s determined to send Kyle down for his wife’s murder.

And then he finds her. Will Gaby finally take a stand?

Nelumbo Nucifera is so good!!! I wanted to read a book that I could drag me in and trap me emotionally. As soon as I seen this one out and read the description I knew this was the book I need to read. It has such a beautiful cover and holds a beautiful story. It's not pretty by all means, it deals with some pretty serious stuff. But it is thrilling and keeps you guessing. And I fell in love with the Gabby. My heart hurt for her and I cried for her..
It just has all the feels!

This is a book you just need to get for yourself and read. I can't put into words how much I love it and why without ruining things. If you like psychological thrillers and suspense with some romance then give this book a try.
