And then he finds her. Will Gaby finally take a stand? – NELUMBO NUCIFERA

3 Stars

Gabby is an abused spouse who knows that death is the only way out. Knowing this, she decides to take that death in her own hands with the help of a few “friends”. Once she is dead, Gabby, now Riley, must return to her past to claim her new future.

Nelumbo Nucifera by Cristina Slough is the tale of Gabby, and how she had to die to before she could have a life. The characters are what one would typically expect in a story such as this. I cannot say that there was anything exceptional about this book for me. However, I can see how many readers could love it.

Novelist, movie addict, and animal lover, Cristina Slough is the author of: Till Death Us Do Part, and Nelumbo Nucifera.

Cristina has always been a bookworm and loves delving into a literacy fictional world of her own.

Cristina is married to Adam, who runs a successful business; together they share their Bedfordshire home with their son, and several spoiled pets.
