The Girl She Used to Be by David Cristofano

I’m embarrassed to admit that I actually finished this book. My excuse is that I was filled with sick curiosity. The only redeeming component of the novel is the believable writing around the main character’s, Melody’s, emotions. Even the novel’s premise is good: what it is like for a woman to be in the Witness Protection Program. Unfortunately, the majority of the story becomes a cheeseball romance. Of course Melody is beautiful, smart, and tough. Of course she falls in love with her “captor.” Of course he is chivalrous and trying to become a good man. And all the pledges to never-ending fidelity left me feeling that Cristofano forcibly inserted his own value judgements.
