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 Francesca shows 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?[/box]

 My Review

In the first few chapters, I was a bit confused, and things seemed sort of contradictory. Later, I realized that was because Francesca had a big secret, and all the little confusing bits wrap up together into a nice, neat, jaw-dropping, tear inducing, cliffhanger free package by the end of this amazing book.

I thought Francesca was a bit of a brat at first, and I started to wonder why anyone would want her, but as she slowly allowed the reader to see more of her world, and her mind, and her hopes and fears, I began to understand her.

Brody was amazing. I want a Brody, and I think every girl needs a Brody. He is the perfect example of unconditional love, and he’s just… wow.

The plot seems like a jumbled, confusing, erratic mess, until the pieces of this very twisted and expertly crafted puzzle begin to align, and we realize exactly what is going on.

Do you like
-Strong heroines
-Handsome, sweet but a little rough around the edges but always loyal heroes
-Well written storytelling

If so, Losing Francesca should be next on your TBR list. Also, if you ever read “The Face on the Milk Carton” this book reminded me slightly of that, but in a more grown up, NA setting, and more modern.

In short, I loved this book.

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.
