Publisher's Summary

In Ava’s dreams, her son, Noah, looks just the way she remembers him: a sweet two-year-old in rolled-up jeans and a red sweatshirt. When Ava wakes, the agonizing truth hits her all over again. Noah went missing two years ago, and his body has never been found. Almost everyone, including Ava’s semi-estranged husband, Wyatt, assumes the boy drowned after falling off the dock near their Church Island home.

Ava has spent most of the past two years in and out of Seattle mental institutions, shattered by grief and unable to recall the details of Noah’s disappearance. Now she’s back at Neptune’s Gate, the family estate she once intended to restore to its former grandeur. Slowly, her strength is returning. But as Ava’s mind comes back into focus, her suspicions grow. Despite their apparent concern, Ava can’t shake the feeling that her family and her psychologist know more than they’re saying. But are they really worried for her well-being - or anxious about what she might discover?

Unwilling to trust those around her, Ava secretly visits a hypnotist to try and restore her memories. But the strange visions and night terrors keep getting worse. Ava is sure she’s heard Noah crying in the nursery, and glimpsed him walking near the dock. Is she losing her mind, or is Noah still alive? Ava won’t stop until she gets answers, but the truth is more dangerous than she can imagine. And the price may be more than she ever thought to pay….

    "What a Disappointment!"
    What would have made You Don't Want to Know better?

    This book would have been better with half the words removed. I got irritated listening to the unnecessary words used to tell the story. The f word doesn't need to be used at all.


    Has You Don't Want to Know turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Turned me off of this genre? No. Turned me off of this author? Yes. I will never bother with a Lisa Jackson again.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Christina Traister’s performances?

    Absolutely not!


    What character would you cut from You Don't Want to Know?

    Most of them.

    "Too many F bombs"
    What disappointed you about You Don't Want to Know?

    The language in this book is better suited to a Junior High student who is trying to impress his friends than the characters in this book. I finally went to the last chapter just to see how things ended, the story line was great but the language was very distracting.

    "Gripping, slow at first , but will hook you!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of You Don't Want to Know to be better than the print version?

    I would have put down a paper version after the first two chapters, but kept listening wondering why is this happening to them.


    Have you listened to any of Christina Traister’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes , all very well done,.

    Story
    "difficult read"
    What would have made You Don't Want to Know better?

    Synonym for gaslight(ing). Reader with better sense of speaking emphasis.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of You Don't Want to Know?

    mispronunciation of macabre


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Christina Traister?

    No one comes to mind. This reader could be trained.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Decent story line. Needs some work on vocabulary.


    Any additional comments?

    I wasted a credit.

    "Good story - terrible narration"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    NO! The narrator used inaccurate emphasis so many times I had to grit my teeth. There were run-ons, pauses in the middle of phrases, and shifts in pronunciation which completely changed meaning at times.


    If you’ve listened to books by Lisa Jackson before, how does this one compare?

    The story was as good but the reading was far worse. I have listened to several other Lisa Jackson books and enjoyed them, but this was disappointing. As I said, good story though.


    What didn’t you like about Christina Traister’s performance?

    I became so leery of hearing mispronounced sentences that at times I lost track of the story.

    Story
    "Too Bizarre to Make Sense"

    Noah age 2 has been missing for two years. Ava his mother has never given up hope even after a stay in a mental hospital. Everyone thinks she is a certifiable nut case. As the story unfolds we learn the secrets this family is keeping. Each is more bizarre than the next.

    Just when you think you have figured it out, the author throws you a curve. The story becomes so bizarre as to be unbelievable. The ending doesn't make much sense.

    Another thing I had a hard time with was the hardcore cussing. The cursing would make a rapper blush. It is not necessary to spice up dialogue with G**D*** & F******C***** and much worse.

    I would not recommend the book.
