Hello everybody!! Today I am part of the Losing Francesca by J. A. Huss book tour by Xpresso Book Tours. I loved this book so much!! I will be doing a review on it for this review. But first before that the book info!!
Losing Francesca by J.A. Huss
Publication date: July 1st 2013
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Francesca Sabatini came to America to take in the sights, celebrate her high school graduation, and have fun wasting time before college starts in the fall.
That’s not what happens.
Fresh off the plane and barely on American soil more than a handful of minutes, Francesca’s face is recognized by TSA scanners to be a match for a child who was kidnapped twelve years ago.
Brody Mason remembers the day Fiona Sullivan went missing during a family vacation in Italy and it’s haunted him his whole life. So when Francesca shows up at the Sullivan farm down the road, he’s compelled to figure out if this girl really is his long lost friend.
But Francesca knows she’s not Fiona Sullivan. She knows exactly who she is. At least she thinks she knows – until Brody Mason relentlessly pursues her and she begins to have feelings for him. Maybe being Fiona isn’t so bad?
Reality becomes blurred, secrets are revealed, and life will never be the same when the final questions are answered: Is she Francesca or Fiona? And where does she really belong?
J. A. Huss likes to write new adult books that make you think and keep you guessing. Her favorite genre to read is space opera, but since practically no one reads those books, she writes new adult science fiction, paranormal romance, contemporary romance, urban fantasy, and books about Junco (who refuses to be saddled with a label).
She has an undergraduate degree in horses, (yes, really–Thank you, Colorado State University) and a master’s degree in forensic toxicology from the University of Florida. She used to have a job driving around Colorado doing pretty much nothing but shooting the breeze with farmers, but now she just writes, runs the New Adult Addiction and Clean Teen Reads Book Blogs, and runs an online science classroom for homeschooler
I really don't know where to start with this review. I am just speechless when it comes to this book. It was so beautiful and outstanding!! So, I got this as an ARC for the blog tour and I read it and I feel in love!! This book was amazing!! I did think it was a little short and the author could have added more details to the ending, but besides that it was great!!!
The plot was great!! I loved it!! I loved how it was more than it seems in the beginning. It starts out as a simple, soft plot, but than the author slowly weaved in this mystery that left you on the edge of your set. I loved that! And the author did it perfectly, I mean I can't say anymore than that. It was just so great and wonderful that you just have to read it for yourself to understand.
And before I go any farther I want to say how much I loved the writing in this! It was perfect!! it was enchanting, captivating, bewitching, It was just so beautiful!! She was able to weave all of these emotions in the words. From tragic to mysterious, everything!! It seems like this author keeps getting better with every passing book!!
Next up is the romance. The author wrote this beautifully!! She entwined this aspect with this tone of soft longing, like the summary said. It was so fun to read!!! Brody and Francesca just complement each other. They're just perfect for each other and they have so much chemistry. Although I wish they got to know each other for more than a week, before all those things went on.
Which comes to my one and only issue with this book. I felt like this book was to short and not in the sense that I didn't want it to end. I felt like the author could have added more time in this book. Like she could have made Francesca stay there for more than a week. And she also could have put more details in the end. I didn't really like how it was just an overview of what happened. But this wasn't a big deal for me, but I can see a few people getting annoyed with it.
Overall I loved this beautiful, captivating book!! It was just so wonderful!! I can't say anymore than that. Just read this book people! And I would recommend this book to everybody, even to people who don't like contemporaries, because of the mystery aspect in it.
