In Her Skin Reviews
I fell into this book headfirst, and it was a good long time before I came up for air. Kim Savage, vividly and wickedly, takes the reader on a wild ride, where nothing is as it seems, and the divide between good and evil is as thin as a gossamer curtain flickering in the wind.
Five stars, for a read that kept me up late to finish, then kept me awake after the light was out! Unforgettable characters and shocking twists to satisfy the most jaded thriller addict!
I don’t want to write too much because of spoilers but I LOVE this book! Dark, very dark and although I really like Kim’s other novels - this is my favorite by far. My recommendation is for you to get your hands on this book and read it today!
Great read! Enjoyed it all the way through.

There's always a lot of potential in these books for suspense and action, but it ended up falling a little flat for me. Although it wasn't as bad as Genuine Fraud in the sense that things actually happened and it wasn't just detailing how this girl got into the con, I couldn't help but be a little disappointed by the result. ...more
In Her Skin is a kinda dark book with almost all the characters trying to emotionally manipulate each other.

Jo lies to a family and pretends to be someone she's not and yet you can't help but root for her and pray that she doesn't get caught. I didn't ...more
I absolutely loved this book! The plot twist really caught me by surprise and wasn't something I was expecting. The story kept me so on edge that I couldn't put it down (I read it in one afternoon!).
Thank you to Farrar, Straus, and Giroux for provding a free copy of In Her Skin By: Kim Savage in exchange for an honest review.
Omg, I loved In Her Skin! This is my favorite Kim Savage book so far. Everything about this book is so well done. The story, the characters (Especially Jo and Temple), the writing, and THAT ENDING! The entire book is fast-paced and the pages just flew by as I raced to the end to see what would happen. I definitely recommend this ...more
