Lisa Gardner – Look for Me

Review From User :

I am a huge fan of LISA GARDNER and have never missed any of her books.  She is one author that I absolutely cannot wait for her new book release so when I had the opportunity to read this one, needless to say I was a little excited and jumped on it immediately!  

Traveling Sisters Review by Norma and Brenda with Susanne, Kaceey, Melissa, Diane S., Holly and Mackey.

LOOK FOR ME (Detective D.D. Warren #9) by LISA GARDNER is an intriguing, suspenseful, and a compelling read that is a race against time police procedural featuring our all-time favorite character Detective D.D. Warren, who teams up with survivor turned avenger Flora Dane.  We all absolutely loved that she teamed up with D.D. and it was one of our favorite aspects of this novel. The witty humor, the snarky comebacks, and the dynamics between D.D. and Flora was such a good balance to the heart-wrenching storyline. They both brought out their own unique characteristics, making them the perfect entertaining team.  

Even though some of us thought that the ending was a little predictable it did have us interested and guessing right from the very start and we all really enjoyed playing detective with this one.  

There are a few authors that Brenda and I thoroughly enjoy and it doesn't matter to us if their books are predictable or not, we just are so excited to read the book that we savour every moment as we are reading it.  We like to follow along and learn things as they are revealed to us as the characters learn them.

LISA GARDNER delivers a well-written, well-paced and a cleverly-plotted storyline here that is told to us in three main voices between Detective D.D. Warren, C.I. Flora Dane, and the missing girl, Roxy.  Roxy's perspective was uniquely told to us via essay excerpts that she wrote for a school assignment that was titled The Perfect Family. We all thought this was very gut-wrenching and well executed adding tension to the story for us as it gave us a first-hand look into Roxy's life, her family and the foster care system which stirred up quite a few emotions for us.  We felt sad, shocked, and anger towards the foster home in this story.

Overall, this was another great addition to this series and we look forward to reading the next book, hoping that Flora Dane will also show another appearance!  Would recommend!

Expected Publishing Date:  February 8, 2018
