Blog Tour+ Giveaway:{Review} LOSING FRANCESCA by J.A. HUSS

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 Francescashows 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?



About the Author

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 homeschoolers.

(I was given an ebook copy of Losing Francesca for an honest review. I'm not a paid reviewer. All thoughts are my own.)

I was actually kind of excited to read this one. When I read the synopsis, I was super excited to get my hands on it. I love stories with mistaken Identity of some sort. In Losing Francesca there is something similar. A girl who doesnt know she was or is someone else yet she is also still the same person she think she is. A little confusing? Well actually it wasn't to confusing I might have twisted the words a little..sorry..:)  So without giving to much away but to make it a little less confusing she may or may not be one in the same person they say she is. 

Francesca was picked up by the FBI when she was mistaken for a lost girl that went missing a few years ago. She is then forced to live with the family that the missing girl is from. Scared and confused at why this is going on she feels she need to just wait it out until she is allowed to leave or her father ( who is a very powerful man) comes for her. A few weeks go by and she starts to see the good in the people she is with and that is partly due to the hottie next door...Brody. Being able to spend time with him and this so called missing girls family she starts to care about them. Then her father comes for her.. happy to see her father but confused, sad, and doesn't really want to leave. A few things take place after that and we reach the end...I loved the simple ending...One thing some may know about me is I LOVE love so anything to do with love is great in my book.

All in all I really enjoyed Losing Francesca. I would recommend it to New Adult readers..and possibly a few YA readers as well ( *there are few cuss words that takes place in this book)
