Jeanine, now Nina
This book was filled with implausible scenarios that would be hard pressed to pull off in real life, but that's the beauty of fiction - you can write wild scenes and make them intense and gripping... without any loss of the story due to implausibility.
Jeanine accidentally killed someone while driving drunk 20 years before. A cop pulled her over and instead of arresting her........helped her hide the body, set her up in an apartment and then married her several months later. Somehow this didn't set up warning bells for Jeanine.. :) A few years later Jeanine realizes she should have heard some warning bells when she suddenly finds herself running for her life and taking on a new identity.
I don't want to say anymore as it would give away some good plot points, but a bizarre twist of fate bring her back to where it all started 20 years earlier.
This book was a good, fast, fun read. It kept me on the edge of my seat with never a dull moment. One thing I did like about it was that while it had violence, it did not have overly graphic scenes involving rape and torture, which you generally tend to get in these types of books. It's always more enjoyable to read a book when you're not covering your eyes! ;)
