Featured Book Review: Snake Skin
Judy A. Kessinger
This is the first book I’ve read by this author and I was simply amazed at how she can bring to life the characters in this book. You can feel what they are feeling and experiencing at the moment. The main character knows she must put on her snake skin to do the job and in some cases go against the rules to get the job done.
At the beginning of the book you can see why the main character needs to be as tough as she is when it comes to catching the guilty party and saving this young girls life even at the expense of sacrificing time with her family. As with each piece of evidence that comes to life, Lucy Guardino trusts her gut instinct even if others around her dont agree with her. As it turns out she is right and follows through. She learns that the kidnapped girl has been trying to run away from her own life even when on the outside it seems she has everything. The father and mother are more concerned with their own needs and not focusing their attention on their daughter. Lucy senses this after talking to (and observing) them in the process of trying to solve the case.
Lucy pieces together the events that lead up to the kidnappers motives. He thinks that he is saving Ashley but in reality he is really trying to save himself from things he thought were the truth but are not what he has been lead to believe all these years. When Lucy finally comes across the one person who can help save Ashley, she knows she is on the right track. With the kidnapper always lurking right behind her every step of the way, Lucy takes a chance and gets him to admit what he has done.
