Good book. The plot was not predictable
It kept my attention til the end
reading style was understandable
feeling for the girl and her feelings
I didn't like the voices of some of the characters
Enjoyed the writing style and winding mystery. Didn't like the readers attempt at a Boston accent.
My first by this author and not my last . Excellent suspense and not easy to figure out the "bad guy". Highly recommended.
i am an avid reader have been since i was young. Since discovering Audible i consider myself an avid listener now. I tend to skim read and well you can't skim listen so i get much more from a book
I haven't read the print version but i love audio readings as much or more than the print version
Any of her books she is one of a kind in these type of books
I really thought i was not going to like this book but it was so well written and performed that it pulled me in till i had trouble turning it off. Stayed up later several times because i had to see what happened next. Love the way she writes.
Definitely. She is one of my favorite authors. This is the first novel of hers that disappointed me.
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!
Yes. There were several twists I did not expect.
She managed a New England accent without overpowering the story with it.
I really wanted to know what happened next, even after the book ended.
I love audio and ebooks but only give them a 5 if they hold my attention. An avereage story gets a 3 . Thrillers & Crime are my favorites.
I love Lisa Gardner and thought this was a bit of a let down after "Love You More".
The story starts out with a family being kidnapped and is fast paced as they go through all the macinations of being held hostage, ransom etc. but I had figured out who the culprit was about a third of the way into the story.
There were a lot of very intense parts but there were also quite a few where Libby, the main female character, was rather whinny and annoying as was her daughter.
I was glad to see Tessa Leone back as an investigator. She was a great character in "Love You More". I did find the narrator's performance of Tessa to be quite grating in that she, and several other characters, kept slipping in and out of very poorly done New England accents. The thing was, sometimes they had the accecnts and sometimes they did not.
Overall I enjoyed it but it was not at the level I have come to expect from Lisa Gardner.
This could have been a great story. It starts well enough where a man, his wife and teenaged daughter are kidnapped from their Boston brownstone luxury apartment. However, once they are settled into their new "digs" the story really gets bogged down. We're subjected to the tedium of an hour-by-hour reflection of their family values. We also have to listen to Libby drone on and on about her feelings, and emotions, and betrayal, and addiction....yawn. It just didn't seem to end. It's one of those stories where I was starting to like the bad guys more than the family. The story picks up towards the end when many questions are finally answered and the action picks up, but it was too little and too late to help this clunker.
As far as the narration - Elisabeth Rodgers does OK, but sometimes she seemed to struggle with the male parts as well as overact (shriek) some of her lines.
