A well woven tale of intrigue and suspense! Loved the story and the narration. Keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout the story. Great ending. Well worth the read/listen!
This book has great characterization, a suspenseful storyline and fast pacing. I was riveted and finished the entire book in two days.
I thought the narration was excellent and it added to the story. Definitely worth a credit. Thanks, Lisa Gardner!
This was my first Lisa Gardner book. I very much enjoyed it. I enjoyed the story and the narration. The first half was a little slow but still interesting. The 2nd half was a page turner. I was able to figure out the 'who done it' 3/4 of the way through, but it was still intriguing to finish the book. I've read other reviews for Lisa Gardner and most seem to really like her books but I saw lots of complaints about the narrators. This narrator was pretty good. I recommend this book!!
I am looking for other Gardner novels....
too fluffy for my tastes
no but will stay away from gardner
not really but did listen to the whole thing but if I missed a few minutes here and there didn't rewind
The story was slow and bulky and at times had spurts of energy. Not typical of the authors writings.
Love You More by the same author and some of the same characters
Oh what tangled webs we all weave! Wow this was a great thriller that kept you guessing and if you think your family is screwed up just wait until you read about the Denby's. In this book the Denby family, mom, dad and 15 y/o daughter are taken hostage out of their own home. Tessa Leoni, from Love You More (which is a great read too), is hired by Denby Construction to investigate what happened to the family. Tessa works with the FBI and local law enforcement to find this family. What on the surface appears to be a large construction family run by a close knit group, ends up being anything but. About the time you think you have figured out who kidnapped them there is another wrench thrown into the mix to keep you guessing and trying to figure out the who and why. You don't need to read Love You More before this book even though some of the same characters play a role but the storyline is not effected either way.
This is an absolute must! Every time I thought I knew who was behind the kidnapping there would be a twist and then a turn and then another twist. I was in knots by the end. This was my first Lisa Gardner novel and it won't be my last. I loved it!
Speaker, Coach, Author - in Reno, NV (A GREAT place!) I've been an avid Audible fan for several years. Listen on my iPhone many hours each week.
This one was one of those books that made me want to listen instead of doing anything else! I started it just before a 4-day trip and was happy to stand in lines at airports because it gave me time to listen. Very intriguing and cleverly plotted. Original in so many ways. Loved the characters and am looking forward to Lisa Gardner's next book. The narrator was outstanding! SO many different voices and she made the story that much more interesting.
The characters in this novel are very well rounded, with believable traits and responses to the danger they face. Gardner does a great job of directing suspicions to different suspects, each with a logical motive. It is told from the point of view of the wife, but it stays true to the plot without becoming maudlin.
I would compare this book to the others written by Lisa Gardner. Characters with depth, and a good believable plot.
Elisabeth Rodgers does a great job of narrating the plot from the wife's point of view, but it could be greatly improved with the addition of a good male reader for the more threatening antagonists.
Like all of Lisa Gardner's books, she keeps the pace up, with builds and twists that really captured my interest.
Kept me guessing!
Not really sure but I really enjoyed it and will buy more Lisa Gardner books.
Really did not care for the narrators attempt at Boston accents. The accent came and went from sentence to sentence and at times it was difficult to know who was supposed to be speaking. Would've enjoyed it more without the terrible accents!
Made me hold my breath several times and had me gripping the steering wheel extra tight while driving!
Great story if you can get past the narration!
