Critic Reviews

"Kirsten Potter narrates a dark plot involving the brutal murder of an entire family, except for the eldest daughter, Roxy.... During the search for Roxy Baez, Potter's empathetic reading of Roxy's essays on the perfect family deepen the listener's emotional connection, demonstrating how pitch and cadence can enrich a story. Listeners will enjoy Potter's Boston accent, too. Filled with passion and suspense, this cleverly plotted mystery is heartbreaking and eye-opening." (AudioFile)

Current Issues Intricately Crafted Great Addition

It's another complicated DD Warren case. This is a crime that at first glance gives the appearance of events that point the police in one direction. After further investigation the initial theory becomes questionable.
A 16 year old girl (Roxy) is on the run after her entire family is murdered. At first the police begin looking for her believing the girl might have done it. After further investigation they find the girl was really a caretaker for her younger sister and brother. But what could possibly be the motive to kill this family? The foster home the kids were in and out of? The gang Roxy's sister joined? Add to this Flora Dane (from the previous book). She's conducting her own investigation. She has set up a survivor's group that Roxy had just become involved with. Although spectral opposites Flora becomes DD's confidential informant.
This book addresses many issues of past and present. Those of abuse in foster care homes. Not only by foster parents but by other foster children as well. It also addresses gangs, violence, inappropriate student/teacher relationships and PTSD. DD is also facing issues of being a working mom and the guilt of having to leave her husband and child when work calls.
Add in a young dog who likes to chew provides moments of levity throughout the story.
As always Kristen Potter does an outstanding job narrating.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Great dark psychological thriller!

Author Lisa Gardner took a year away from her D.D. Warren series in 2017 to release Right Behind You which was Book 7 in her outstanding FBI Profiler/Pierce Quincy series. Right Behind You was her first new novel in the FBI Profiler series in 9 years. This new D.D. Warren series novel titled Look for Me was worth the two year wait.

Like Find Her, Gardner's 2016 release, Look for Me has Detective Warren sharing the protagonist role with Flora Dane. Indeed, this novel could well be considered Book 2 of the Flora Dane series because her role is greater than D.D. Warren's.

Lisa Gardner never disappoints! Look for Me may be her best novel to date. It is a great suspense thriller. It is an easy 5 star novel. Like all of Gardner's D.D. Warren and Tessa Leoni series novels it is set in the Boston area (I'd love to see her release a new novel in her Tessa Leoni series next).

Most of Look for me is written in the first person of either Flora Dane or D.D. Warren. While narrator Kirston Potter does her usual stellar job of narration, this audio book would have benefited from having a second narrator do the narration of the first person voice of Flora Dane. I've rated the narration 3 stars not because of any issue with Kirston Potter's narration except that she uses exactly the same voice for the two protagonists.

Poor narration

Loved the story, but the narrator was overly dramatic and read with too much sarcasm! She definitely took away from the story.

Excellent installment

I look forward to every book/audiobook that Lisa Gardner writes. She crafts original stories with plenty of twists and turns. Her stories are always original and compelling. This installment was no different. I took a star away from the narration Kirsten Potter gave a wonderful performance, two narrators would have made it easier to follow. I highly recommend this book/audiobook.

Audible with attitude

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I have read all of Lisa Gardner's books, tho this was the first I Audibled. The unnecessary smartass/immature/unprofessional (re DD) attitude in the Audible version totally detracted from my enjoyment of the story. I never "heard" the attitude ascribed to both Flora and DD's characters by Kirsten Potter when I switched to my own reading of the book. I typically switch back and forth between reading and listening and have never experienced such dissonance before between the two formats. Often, an Audible version has expanded or enhanced my vision of a character or story; sadly, not this time.

What didn’t you like about Kirsten Potter’s performance?

See above as to why her reading nearly killed the book for me.

Too long and drawn out

Ok book. Very drawn out and repeats of the family scenario way to many times. Didn’t finish it.

Long and drawn out without much of a reward at the end.

I usually love her books but this one was very long and drawn out and I the narrator over performed the dialog. The story just went on and on and on without much of a reward at the end. I barely finished it. 😴😴

Not her best...

What disappointed you about Look for Me?

The story was not very good. I felt that the way that D D Warren came off was mean, I usually like her.

Must read

Loved it.. Didn't want it to end.
Narration was on point. Already sad I must wait for another new Lisa Gardner book. Hopefully it will be another Detective DD book...

Solid Lisa Gardner Story

I had my suspicions as to the killer's identity, but really wasn't sure until revealed. If you like Lisa Gardner, you will enjoy this book.
