Nelumbo Nucifera by Cristina Slough is a psychological thriller. The story is well written and focuses on a delicate situation of domestic violence in the worst form and is a very emotional read. The story is told in different P.O.V.s which I like because you get to understand the characters and get inside their heads.
Gaby has been beaten and abused both physically and mentally by someone who is supposed to love and protect her. When it all becomes too much she decides if she doesn’t leave now she will die. When Gaby’s car is found burnt beyond recognition everyone is on the case to find out who killed her. After all their digging what they find is more than any of them realised.
What happened to Gaby? What will they find? What things do they find when they dig into her husband?
If you enjoyed movies like Sleeping With the Enemy and Safe Haven then you will enjoy this book.
