I Know Lucy by Melissa Pearl

I Know Lucy (A Fugitive #1)I Know Lucy by Melissa Pearl
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am ashamed to say I have had this book to review from a review group on GOODREADS for a couple of months now. I was behind in my reviews, but have now caught up.

I read the blurb with this one and fancied it might be something I would like to read. You never know when you choose a book by an author you have never heard of or read one of their books before right?

My God I was blown away by this story.

Melissa Pearl writes superbly and with great style, it was so easy to follow and actually loose yourself in it that you forgot what time it was. I started it at 9pm and finished it at 4am! I was shattered the next day, but oh boy no regrets. I must admit I tried to put my Kindle down but my mind wouldn't rest. I had to pick it up and couldn't settle until I read to the end.............

Until.......

There is a book 2.........a book 2 guys, I need to go straight onto that one. I didn't plan on reading it as I didn't realize there was a book two lol, but I NEED to know what happens.

I am kidding you not, at first I thought, oh yea, another YA book [and here I am 56 years old] with sex, love, teasing and bad language, but I was OH SO VERY WRONG. This is a thriller. Yes, I would defo put it down to a thriller/love/suspense story.

I have read YA books, and enjoyed them, but sometimes there are so many similarities I get a bit bored, this one took me by my tail and swung me around.

This easily goes into my top 5 of this month of January 2015!



Highly recommended.


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
