Book Description

1 Nov 1998
Mirror, mirror on the wall,
who's the deadliest one of all?

It's an antique mirror that can reveal secrets...or tarnish the truth. And for struggling artist Laura Sutherland, buying it is only the first step into a dark maze of lies, manipulation—and murder. It brings Peter Kilbourne into her life and makes her the prime suspect in his fatal stabbing. Determined to clear her name—and uncover Peter's reason for wanting the mirror back—Laura will breach the iron gates of the Kilbourne estate. There she will find that each family member has something to hide. Which one of them looks in the mirror and sees the reflection of a killer? And which one will choose Laura to be the next to die?

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down! 3 Sep 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I should have known better than to start this book at 8:00 at night, but I couldn't help myself! I absolutely love Kay Hooper, but I had put off buying this book because I had been disappointed in "After Caroline", I just couldn't get into it. "Finding Laura", however, has restored my faith in this talented author! Hooper's characters drew me into the story and kept me there, and the revelation of the murderer was a suprise. Well done Ms. Hooper!

3.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed this book, but.... 21 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I must agree with the interviewers who called the characters flat and the pace dragging. The fun element, for me, was the supernatural twist, but even there, more could have been done with it.

Laura and her "soulmate" were both flat. I couldn't figure out why they were in love, other than a very strong sexual attraction. What did she bring to him, and he to her? WHY did they complete each other? Take away Laura's strange fears and reactions left over from being reincarnated, and she is completely without definition. The hero was intriguing at first, but I lost interest in him when he so quickly seduced Laura and did little else but get her into bed. The other characters seemed to have stepped right out of a romance written 50 years ago--what women these days hang around the house all day doing nothing but reading, playing piano, and walking in the garden? To have five full-grown women doing nothing else made it very hard to relate to them. Though all the murderers were women, none of them were very intriguing people. The plot was predictable (we all knew who the baddest person in the house was from the get-go). I wanted one of the shy wallflowers to be the murderer--at least it would have been a surprise. And ALL the women in the house had secret romances, except the matriarch. All FOUR of them. Plus the heroine's best friend! Talk about too much! The ending was far too obvious. We knew from the beginning about the soulmate business, so the mystery of the mirror was very predictable. But why didn't the heroine ever consider the possibility of former lives at any point? Also, unrealistically, her college-student researcher managed to put together the entire history of the mirror in a week or two, complete with lost diaries and letters. As if it would ever be that easy in real life. Worse, the murderer of course admits to the crime the second the heroine asks her about it, in full detail. Talk about a pat ending! Where was the suspense? Finally, the heroine's life was NEVER in danger, despite the blurb on the back. Never once did I feel she was entering dangerous territory. Where's the suspense in that? All in all, a yawner.

I loved this book and can't believe I missed the hardcover release! I was totally intrigued by the set-up, the couple is sexy and fun, and this book kept me distracted from a very bumpy plane ride! The ultimate praise! Kay Hooper writes old-fashioned Gothics with a completely modern sensibility. Wonderful!

5.0 out of 5 stars Clever and Well-Hidden Answers. 15 Sep 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Kay's book is fascinating, despite some of the negative comments. Keeping the reader from figuring out who committed the murders was masterfully done. I found very little to complain about in this piece, though reading tastes are so subjective, it's impossible to please everyone. Her characters were complex and highly interesting, though I would have liked a bit stronger characterization in the hero. He was the kind of guy I wanted to know more about. It's still a great book. When a reader wants to know more about a character, it speaks well of the author who created him in the first place. It takes a lifetime to perfect the craft of writing, and not nearly that long to learn how to criticize.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book! I could not stop once I started. 15 Sep 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"Finding Laura" is a great book. It is so intriguing and enticing that I read till 4 in the morning without knowing it. Now that I am almost close to finishing it, I started to worry where I can find another good book, or Kay Hooper to kill my commuting time.
The book definitely has all the right elements to succeed. I think Kay Hooper has become one of my favorite authoresses.
