I'm a huge fan of Lisa Gardner, so I'm excited to share my review of her latest book that being repackaged as a paperback (complete with a new cover!). This will release on August, 6, 2019, so be sure to check it out. It includes a sneak peek of her 2020 release, When You See Me.
Gardner's latest is the tenth installment in the series, but it can easily be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel.
A man is murdered in his home, and his wife Evie is found holding the smoking gun. It appears to be an easy case. Sergeant D.D. Warren recognizes the woman from an earlier case, when Evie was accused of shooting her father. It now appears she's killed her husband. Are the cases connected?
For readers of the series, they will recognize some familiar characters. The story, told in multiple POVs, grabs the reader early on. A fast pace and short chapters keep the reader engaged. Details are revealed in a way to keep the reader guessing as the clues unfold for the characters. The more you learn, the more you find out that you were likely incorrect in what you thought was going on. D.D. is a strong heroine, which I loved. Characters, including the secondary ones, were well developed. I will likely go back and read others in the series as I wait for the next installment, which releases in 2020. The sample excerpt definitely piqued my interest!
Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy, but I wasn't required to leave a positive review.
