What if the nightmares are actually memories?
Read Under My Skin by Lisa Unger to find out! 

Under My Skin
It’s been a year since Poppy’s husband, Jack, was brutally murdered during his morning run through Manhattan’s Riverside Park. In the immediate aftermath, Poppy spiraled into an oblivion of grief, disappearing for several days only to turn up ragged and confused wearing a tight red dress she didn’t recognize. What happened to Poppy during those lost days? And more importantly, what happened to Jack?
The case was never solved, and Poppy has finally begun to move on. But those lost days have never stopped haunting her. Poppy starts having nightmares and blackouts—there are periods of time she can’t remember, and she’s unable to tell the difference between what is real and what she’s imagining. When she begins to sense that someone is following her, Poppy is plunged into a game of cat and mouse, determined to unravel the mystery around her husband’s death. But can she handle the truth about what really happened?

I’m about half way through and I am hooked on this book. There is just something about a narrator who appears to be unreliable, but totally relatable. Poppy’s life after her husband’s murder is a sad, confusing struggle. She is lonely, mad at the unsolved case and unable to fine happiness. And then it becomes even worse when her nightmares become so vivid, she begins to think they might be memories.

And if that’s true, Poppy’s real struggle hasn’t even begun.
