No. The plot was painfully obvious and is just frustrating to listen to...so much so that you start thinking the characters are idiots for not figuring out who the bad guy(s) is/are fast enough. I liked the D.D. Warren series from Gardner, so I decided to try this one, but it was way too lifetime-movie-ish. It's all about motherhood/having kids/good-for-nothing-men and much less about the actual mystery or investigatory procedures.
A huge snooze and so predictable. I really tried to race through the last half of the book trying to get the whole thing over with.
Yes. The performance was decent.
Yes--a Lifetime movie.
Very long and drawn out.
I am a huge fan of "Lisa Gardner" but I think I will give her books a miss for a while. I got Spoiled with the first few, "Hide", "Alone" "The Next Victim" "Say Goodbye" Unbelievable, Touch & Go" Seem very Jaded by comparison.
Reading is my greatest pleasure and I read for entertainment. Mystery, suspense and romance are my picks.
What a great book. It caught me up in the story on the first page and I was obsessed with finishing it. There were so many twists and turns to the plot that you just weren't able to guess what the outcome was going to be. Not until the last page did I have my answers! I am an avid reader and have read Lisa Gardner in the past but she has outdone herself with this one. People who read a lot are hard to surprise but she got me good with Touch & Go. If you want a read that you can't bear to pause, then give this one a try.
I always prefer the audio-I can listen anywhere and while doing almost anything-while driving and all-where I can't just always read from a book.
Had me wondering from the beginning-her books always does-her plots always gets me because you never know where it will go.
It passed the time during my commute.
No. It is not a bad book, but there are many better options.
She really struggled with the male characters, and over performed some of the dramatic moments in the book. I could have also done without the Boston accent.
Only on video. Some of the characters were quite interesting. I would like to see them performed by actors.
The novel seemed to struggle between being a thriller and a family drama, and in the end did neither one particularly well. I normally do not try and guess the endings of books, but this one seemed very obvious to me pretty early on. The story had some good moments, and moved along at a pretty good pace which was enough to keep my attention, but not on the edge of my seat.
Live life like a kid in a candy store!
How they realize they are so far off track there lives have gone.
Ashlyn the daughter
Tessa and daughter conversations
I loved and hated the ending. You can never really know someone.
Given I listen to more books than I read, I would say so!
Delighted Tessa was resurrected following Love You More. Good character development. Hope to hear more of her and her burgeoning relationship.
Ably handled the myriad of characters. New England accent came and went but overall I think she did quite well
Can't say it moved me but I enjoyed the endings twisted justice and personal triumph. Had the same final impression listening to Love You More.
Looking forward to Lisa Gardner's next thriller.
This is an exciting book that will make you want to do anything to keep listening to it. I haven't finished, but I'm sure it will be a good ending.
This is the first Lisa Gardner book I have read so I guess I expected more than I got from it. It was interesting at first, then I got REALLY tired of the "poor me" whining of the wife and just wanted to fast forward when she started talking about her "miserable life." Enough already! The plot was predictable - had it figured out about half way through. I probably won't read another Lisa Gardner book for a while, if ever.
