A man is dead, shot three times in his home office. But his computer has been shot twelve times, and when the cops arrive, his pregnant wife is holding the gun. D. D. Warren arrives on the scene and recognizes the woman - Evie Carter - from a case many years back. Evie's father was killed in a shooting that was ruled an accident. But for D.D., two coincidental murders is too many. Flora Dane sees the murder of Conrad Carter on the TV news and immediately knows his face. She remembers a night when she was still a victim - a hostage - and her captor knew this man.

I love Lisa Gardner and this series but this book fell a little short for me. The story seemed a bit scattered and old. It won't stop me from buying her next release tho!

This was a meandering story of the lives of three women. I can't say too much without giving away the twist. I can say that after finishing this book, I might go back and listen again ... now that I know the ending. The narration was very good.

Where to start ... ? The narrator has a very pleasant voice but is very monotone - sounds like she's reading an essay in front of the class ... a very grammatically correct essay! So much so that its impossible to believe that she relaying ordinary conversation - either the author envisioned the most polite family of all time or I'm definitely hanging with the wrong people! I have to confess that I didn't finish this book but I did hang in there for quite awhile. The story had possibilities but the characters and the way they spoke to each other were just too unbelievable for me.

Although this story isn't a big thriller, it's really well done. Had me guessing most of the way through. It moved quickly with believable characters. I liked the way everything wrapped up at the end, with a final twist (there were several).

Marianne has a life others dream of. A beautiful townhouse on the best street in the neighbourhood. Three bright children who are her pride and joy. Sometimes her past still hurts: losing her mother early, growing up in foster care. But her husband, Simon, is always there. A successful surgeon, he’s the envy of every woman they’ve ever met. Flowers, gifts, trips to France: nothing is too good for his family. Then Simon says another woman’s name. The way he lingers on it, Caroline, gives Marianne a shudder of suspicion, but she knows it’s nothing - she can’t entertain this flash of paranoia.

Even though it was hard to identify with the main character, she was still quite believable. A few twists I guessed and a few that surprised me. Enjoyed the narrator once I got used to the accent. Kept my interest throughout!

Sixteen-year-old Julia Whitmire appeared to have everything: a famous father, a luxurious Manhattan town house, a coveted spot at the elite Casden prep school. When she is found dead in her bathtub, a handwritten suicide note left on her bed, her parents insist that their daughter would never take her own life. But Julia’s enviable world was more complicated than it seemed. The pressure to excel at Casden was enormous.
