This time she provides her readers with a riveting story, which I found impossible to put down.
I won't give you the story line, as other reviewers have provided that. However, it won't spoil the novel if I tell you that none of the main characters are what they seem, and the twists keep coming thick and fast.
By the end I was reading so quickly I had to re-read the last two chapters more carefully in order to fill in the bits I'd missed!
Incidently, the child in the novel, Ree, is delightful. Made me want a daughter all over again!
I am sure this is a completely original story line, but (and this is not a criticism) I am reminded of Sophie Hannah's Little Face. This is a real compliment, as Sophie is one of my absolute favourite authors.
Buy this novel; you won't be disappointed! Alternatively, if you're lucky enough to be new to Lisa Gardner, buy anything and everything she's written, as almost all of her books are brilliant; well paced, gripping and well written.
First book I've read from Lisa, and I will be looking at another read from her, as I really enjoyed reading The Neighbour. The plot of the main characters with their secret pasts, very disturbing, and in the middle of it, this poor young girl oblivious to the trauma that proceeds her mother going missing, everyone has the intention to look after her, but unfortunately for different reasons.
Come home Sandra, we all cry.
Allot of research is apparent, which makes this story feasible, well done to Lisa Gardiner, will be looking into another one from you.
