When Melody Grace McCartney was six years old, she and her parents witnessed an act of violence so brutal that it changed their lives forever. The federal government lured them into the Witness Protection Program with the promise of safety, but the program took Melody’s name, her home, her family, and ultimately her innocence. Now, twenty years later and still on the run, she’s been May Adams, Karen Smith, Anne Johnson, and countless others. But the one person she longs to be is Melody Grace McCartney.
So when the feds spirit her off to begin yet another new life in yet another new town, she’s stunned by a man who accosts her and calls her by her real name. Jonathan Bovaro, the mafioso sent to find her, knows her, the real her, and it’s a thrill Melody can’t resist. Defying the feds, she goes willingly with him. To the Justice Department, she’s nothing more than a pawn in the government’s war against the Bovaro family. But, as dangerous as Jonathan is, he presents her with the chance of a lifetime - the chance to embrace her past and present, and choose a future all her own.
This story may have been more believable if it wasn't for the awful narration. I thought some other reviews were a bit exaggerated but unfortunately not! Don't waste your time with this book.
What would have made The Girl She Used to Be better?
I don't know if it is the plot or the narrator but it set my teeth so on edge I had to stop. It was horrible.
What do you think your next listen will be?
Wise Man's Fear
Would you be willing to try another one of Emily Beresford???s performances?
