Somebody I Used to Know

Somebody I Used to Know 
When Nick Hansen sees the young woman at the grocery store, his heart stops. She is the spitting image of his college girlfriend, Marissa Minor, who died in a campus house fire twenty years earlier. But when Nick tries to speak to her, she acts skittish and rushes off.
The next morning the police arrive at Nick’s house and show him a photo of the woman from the store. She’s been found dead, murdered in a local motel, with Nick’s name and address on a piece of paper in her pocket.
Convinced there's a connection between the two women, Nick enlists the help of his college friend Laurel Davidson to investigate the events leading up to the night of Marissa’s death. But the young woman’s murder is only the beginning...and the truths Nick uncovers may make him wish he never doubted the lies.
I was so excited to read this book from David Bell, and it delivered way more than I even anticipated! I just felt so immersed in the story.  I was connected to the characters in a way that made me not want to stop reading, but then I also just didn't want it to end.  I was a little nervous about the book being over 400 pages but it read like a book under 300.  So entertaining, engaging on many levels.  I only had one disappointment regarding a character that played a crucial part in the book with the main character, but it was like Mr. Bell just kind of forgot to include the character toward the end.  If you love books that create a mystery and you want to try and piece it together, this is for you.  If you figure it out, more power to you!
