Book Tour: I Know Lucy by Melissa Pearl

Genre: YA Romantic Suspense

Lucy Tate is on the run. After witnessing the
brutal murder of her parents, she's spent five
years in hiding -- taking on different personas and faking her way through life. The authorities can't be trusted, so she remains in the shadows, always one beat ahead of the man who is forever hunting her. That is, until she meets Zach Schultz, a senior at Monte Vista High and the one guy she can’t bear to leave. Suddenly her natural instincts to lie, steal, and run are overshadowed by something else...the desire to stay. It’s her one shot at a normal life.

Curious by nature, Zach is immediately drawn to the new girl at school. How can a person look both confident and vulnerable all in the same moment? Determined to learn more about her, he tries to get close, but is thrown into a world of lies and confusion .The only thing that becomes apparent is that discovering the truth may get him killed.

  This is one of those books that comes along and totally sweeps you up into the story. I spent way too much time with this book avoiding sleep because I had to know what was happening. I've never read anything by Melissa Pearl, but it was both her writing and the suspense of the story that kept me so engaged. The story switches between the present day with Zach and flashbacks of the past from Lucy's point of view. I really enjoyed this added element and appreciated the two different views of the story.

  I really liked the entire cast of characters and connected with them all. Lucy was my favorite, and the snippets of memories from her past were such a treat while reading this book. Zach and his friends were so entertaining. 

  This story is really emotional, and I was totally left when an overload of feels whenever I finished. I'm already ready to read the next part in this series! I want Zach and Lucy both to be okay. Even after I was done reading this, I still wondered about them. The story ends on a bit of a cliffhanger, and I'm still anxiously wondering what's next. 

  What can I say? I loved this book so much! It was not your typical story, and I found myself really invested and engaged to the very end. If you're looking for a book to suck you in and keep you up at night, you have to pick up I Know Lucy!
