Somebody I Used to Know
by David Bell
When Nick Hansen sees the young woman at the grocery store, his heart stops. She is the spitting image of his college girlfriend, Marissa Minor, who died in a campus house fire twenty years earlier. But when Nick tries to speak to her, she acts skittish and rushes off.
The next morning the police arrive at Nick’s house and show him a photo of the woman from the store. She’s been found dead, murdered in a local motel, with Nick’s name and address on a piece of paper in her pocket.
Convinced there’s a connection between the two women, Nick enlists the help of his college friend Laurel Davidson to investigate the events leading up to the night of Marissa’s death. But the young woman’s murder is only the beginning…and the truths Nick uncovers may make him wish he never doubted the lies.
It was a great concept and theory for a book. I was thoroughly confused by where Marissa was, who started the fire, and what really happened?
Nothing better than a captivating suspense, but I felt the plot became a bit convoluted and was trying to hard to fit in as many mysteries as possible.
Then the ending just seemed to perfectly tied up.
Okay, this is going to drive me crazy, I’m already terrified and worried about what is going to happen. I truly hope there is a happy ending of sorts, because too often these types of situations don’t end well.
