Can’t Wait Wednesday: Killing Pace

Can't wait Wednesday- What are book bloggers looking forward to reading next-

Can’t Wait Wednesday was once Waiting on Wednesday, but the purpose is the same: for bloggers to highlight what they’re waiting on. This week I am waiting on: Killing Pace 

Blurb: Laura Pace is a woman on the run—struggling to reconstruct her past, to rebuild her memories, to retrace her steps… and to identify the people who tried to erase her from existence.

Everglade City, Florida, March 2015. It’s been two months since Lisa Green crawled barefoot and bleeding out of a terrible car accident with three important questions: Where am I?… How did I get here?… and most importantly… Who am I? Her boyfriend Roland has been nursing her back to health under close watch.

Lisa has amnesia. They both know that, but only Lisa knows that she hasn’t lost her ability to reason. And reason tells her that she is not Roland’s girlfriend. She is his prisoner. Gradually, Lisa remembers training and skills that she didn’t know she had and is able to make her escape. When a sheriff’s deputy finds her, she tells him she wants to report a missing person: herself.

What follows is a high-octane international chase, which involves US Border Control, the Sicilian mafia, and a shadowy organization specializing in trafficking infants taken from Syrian refugees and made available for adoption to wealthy American couples. Lisa, whose real name is Laura Pace, must figure out who she can trust and how to stay alive…

Losing your memory but knowing deep down you’re in trouble — how scary does that sound?! And then she starts to search for herself? This is such an intimate story — she’s searching for herself, but it’s also bigger than her too. I’m eager to see if the author pulls this off because there’s such potential for goodness here!
