5 STAR REVIEW
Thank you so much to Dutton Books and NetGalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
I have devoured every single Lisa Gardner book there is and I have loved every single one of her books, especially the ones with D.D. Warren as the main character. I was so glad when I saw her new book featured my favorite detective and her crazy sidekicks back at it again.
When Evie returns to her house she finds the last thing she would ever expect, her husband Conrad shot dead in his office chair, still holding the murder weapon. It immediately throws Evie back sixteen years ago when she walked into a similar scene at her parent’s home except it was her father she found shot in the kitchen that time. Evie takes the blame for shooting her father and even though she didn’t shoot and kill her husband, the police arrest her when they find her holding the gun.
Flora is still trying to heal six years after escaping her kidnapper and is helping D.D. Warren as her CI. When D.D. starts working Evie’s husbands case Flora realizes she knows Conrad and knows he’s somehow tied to her kidnapper.
With the help of Flora, Evie, and a crime-obsessed blogger named Keith, D.D. Warren solves her case but no one expected what the outcome would be.
I love Lisa Gardner continues to have D.D. Warren such a huge character in her series and I love that she is bringing back Flora in her stories as well. This book continuously made me gasp, laugh, and want to be in the pages along with the characters. Her writing style constantly makes me feel like I can’t read the book fast enough and she always makes you think you know the outcome and then you’re blown away at the end.
Thank you so much to Lisa Gardner for writing another amazing book and Dutton books for giving me the opportunity to read it.
