Book Worms gave this book 5 stars.  Review left by Leigh a Book Worms reviewer, thanks Leigh.  Jayda Parrish is hoping for a change in her life. She has been in a long, abusive relationship with Carson Liddell for years. She works at a fuse factory and makes minimum pay. She has planned an escape from her life for a while but is just ready to put it into action.  She decides to fake her own death to escape her horrible life and start a new and better one. She moves to another city far away in hopes that she will be forgotten and can continue forward with her new identity. Unfortunately, there is a detective not willing to believe she is dead.  Chief Ben Foxx puts more effort than he should into Jayda’s case. Everyone in her hometown is certain that her low life boyfriend is her murderer. Foxx follows a trail that leads him in the right direction to find her. Foxx and his partner always seem to come to a dead end just when they think they have caught her, that is until one night several months later. Jayda finds out about love, friendship, heartache, and self-preservation. She will have ups and downs in her journey, but in the end Jayda will find what she wanted the most.  I give this book 5 out of 5 stars!  The book started off with an edge of mystery. I was pulled into the story just after a few pages and already trying to assume what was going to happen. The story continued to please me as things I didn’t expect kept coming. The book progressed into all these wonderful stories and relationships that Jayda found herself in. It was adventure after adventure. I couldn’t wait to get to the next page. I was ready to go into a suspenseful journey with these characters. When the story wasn’t suspenseful, it was full of wonderful life experiences for Jayda. Jayda was an awesome character. Here is this young woman who had been in a relationship full of abuse for years, yet she is determined to get out of it and make a great new life for herself. Although her new life is built on a foundation of lies, she tries to be as honest as possible as she moves forward with the new people she encounters and forms relationships with. Almost everyone she meets is drawn to her and comes to appreciate her in one way or another. These new bonds prove to help her in the end. I really loved the way the author showed all these characters’ appreciation for Jayda when she needed it the most.  This book kept me interested from the beginning to the very last page. The story line was original. The characters were great. This is definitely a book I will pull out and read again. I also recommend this book to anyone that is tired of reading the same old stories over and over again.

Finding Jayda by Samantha Johns  Jayda Parrish, a middle class young woman from St. Louis decides to finally leave her alcoholic/abusive boyfriend to start a new life. She is desperate to flee and even fakes her own death. Her life is about to change. The police are slowly tracking her down but she does meet some nice people along the way.   As she tries to figure out what to do with her life, where to settle down she finds herself falling in love. Will her life ever be normal? Will she be able to put her past behind her? A fast past romantic/suspense. Filled with secrets, twist and turns. I loved Jayda and I found myself anticipating t he events in her life and wanting her to achieve true happiness. Most of the characters were likable, some were not so desirable. But overall I was left fulfilled by the time I finished Finding Jayda.

I thought this book was amazing! It was such an emotional rollercoaster ride. All I wanted the whole time was a happy ending for Jayda. It was a long book but it never got boring. There was always a new twist waiting right around the corner. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone!
