I’m a born and raised Bostonian. If you meet me you know this by just listening to my accent. I love everything Boston, including books that take place in my city. So I was pretty excited when I got the chance to share a video created by author Kim Savage (she’s local-ish!!) showing some of the sights around Boston that are featured in her new book, In Her Skin (out today).In Her Skin by Kim Savage

Sixteen-year-old con artist Jo Chastain is about to take on the biggest scam of her life: impersonating a missing girl. Life on the streets of Boston these past few years hasn’t been easy, and Jo is hoping to cash in on a little safety, a little security. She finds her opportunity in the Lovecrafts, a wealthy family with ties to the unsolved disappearance of Vivienne Weir, who vanished when she was nine.
When Jo takes on Vivi's identity and stages the girl’s miraculous return, the Lovecrafts welcome her back with open arms. They give her everything she could want: love, money, and proximity to their intoxicating and unpredictable daughter, Temple. But nothing is as it seems in the Lovecraft household—and some secrets refuse to stay buried. As hidden crimes come to the surface, and lines of deception begin to blur, Jo must choose to either hold onto an illusion of safety, or escape the danger around her before it’s too late.
Kim can’t show us everything or that would just giveaway the book but I certainly loved what she did show! I certainly always forget about how gorgeous the older part of the Boston Public Library is.
Thanks so much, Kim, for taking the time to do this and show off some of the special parts of Boston!
In Her Skin is out today! Be sure to check out this thriller and mystery.
