"Gardner never sensationalizes her story, and the book ends with a resolution that is creatively and emotionally appropriate. An excellent novel." (Booklist)
I agree with one reviewer that it is hard to read about sad circumstances which involve children, but this book is so worth listening to, and WOW the readers are just exceptional. "thumbs up for Lisa Gardner"
Relaxing my body and calming my mind while listening my way through a stress free day!
I wasn't disappointed because my expectations were super high. The story was interesting but had a slow start. I found it a bit confusing as I tried to keep up with all the times and characters. I love this author and I am on to the next book in the series!
Ms Gardner hit it out of the park with this one. Well organizer, great flow ....easy to Want to know more....Plus all the while keeping me on the skinny limb of NEVER quite figuring out what/who/how it all fit together......Great Read!!
I love the way Gardner tells all sides to her stories through her characters.
Timely subject matter
I don't write reviews often,but this was a must. Lisa Gardner took me into an area I'm really not familiar with, mental illnesses. She wrote in a way where I clearly understood, with so many twists, and really interesting characters. I was hooked and in suspense through the whole book. I really liked Detective Dee Dee Warren much more in this book. She was just as cocky and brass as always, but her character didn't take over the entire story this time. This story constantly kept me wanting for more, and couldn't put the listen down for long except for when I had too. Great Narrators, and a truly great story all around.
This book was a great book!!! Could not stop listening!!! Storyline was great!!! Suprising twists and thrillers!!!! Cannot wait to read other books!
