Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 2/20/2014

    " She knows how to add suspense and mystery to her books. Not one of my very favorite books but still it was good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebecca | 2/20/2014

    " I'm not sure I will be reading anymore Lisa Jackson books as I've found the more I read them, the weaker I find them. I felt this one especially was really, really repetitive. Cissy would tell Jack to leave, he would stay, she would accept it. The next morning she would 'come to her senses', he would leave - then return the same day, and she would make weak protests and accept it. Meanwhile her family members are getting bumped off so a bit of the chapter would be about that and how Cissy was panicking. Combined with the constant talk of the murderer trying to convince the escapee prisoner to move around the house (I'd like to know how many times the phrase "keep the curtains/blinds/drapes closed" was written) and straight up rude comments from Jack's sister (and barely anyone calling her out on it...) I just felt like I was reading the same chapter over and over with a new family members name put in as the murder victim. It was not interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Grace | 1/29/2014

    " another good one, although I did have a sneaking suspicion who the murderer was about 3/4 of the way thru...still, worth the ride "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marti | 1/29/2014

    " Usually I find Lisa Jackson's books to be taut and thrilling from the start, but this one seemed rather flabby at first. The heroine, Cissy Cahill Holt's character referred to her soon to be ex-husband's aftershave fragrance three or four times. The mother seemed at first to be more of a villainess, but sort of wimped out. There were some suspenseful scenes, but overall, I was disappointed in the character development. I left the paperback at a Hardee's in southern Virginia--hopefully it will be picked up by someone who might enjoy it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacey Burton | 1/21/2014

    " Pretty average, but still good, murder mystery novel "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beanse | 1/16/2014

    " Thought it was a boring dull book with surprisingly dumb characters.... especially for a Lisa jackson book. Usually I find her very interesting with her creepy plot twist and deranged killers. I was just about to give this book up for CRAP when she shocked me with a surprising creepy twist! That's my girl! sadly, you have to waist hours of your life to get there. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eleanor Jethro | 1/13/2014

    " I really enjoyed reading this book Lisa Jackson knows how to tell a story - This book had me going till the end - Cissy/Jack/Marla & Elyse seemed real to me. I had figured out who Elyse was about 1/3 way through the book - the ending now that was a surprise. I just came across another 1 of Lisa Jackson's books and will be reading it soon "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Vanillahugz | 1/11/2014

    " If I wanted to read a love story ... I would read Harlequin Romances !! Too predictable with regards to the "love story" and it distracted from the murder mystery. YUCK "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janine | 1/8/2014

    " Great twist at the end. The book kept my attention the whole time and I could not wait to see how it would end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna Tancsa Crider | 12/18/2013

    " I had a hard time getting into this book at first, but that was probably just me. It was a very good, twisted story!! I love Lisa Jackson...don't think I've ever read one of her books that I didn't like. The twists in this book were awesome and things you just didn't expect! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 yvette tramel | 12/17/2013

    " lots of twists and turns. so-so read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Efi | 12/9/2013

    " to be honest, around the middle of the book, i found it a bit boring. however, the second half of the book was full of twists and great suspense of what's next! i would love to see this story in a movie!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 12/5/2013

    " this book had me confused until the very end. when i thought i had it figured out it twisted again. she is such an awesome writer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aurora Raboin | 11/26/2013

    " very good at keeping up with the suspense! i did not expect most of the twists! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donna Hatch | 11/12/2013

    " Well-written, but not my thing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vanessa | 5/30/2013

    " Supsensful, page turning book. Must read the prequal "If She Only Knew." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abbey | 4/15/2013

    " I liked this book until the end. It had a very cheesy lifetime movie ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 1/28/2013

    " This book was an easy read from start to finish, unlike another book I read by Lisa Jackson. It had a nice twist in the middle of the book that made me want to keep reading! I was able to guess the killer before the end of book, but really liked this book. The characters were likable and believable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 12/19/2012

    " This book was so good, there was one part that I got so angry I almost put it down, but thank goodness I didn't! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tara | 5/27/2012

    " This book was pretty good as far as plot twists and keeping you guessing as to who the bad guy is, but there are so many characters to keep track of! I kept wondering who she was talking about and then I'd have to do a mental inventory and would finally figure it out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane Johnson | 5/23/2012

    " great book, big fan "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mom | 3/8/2012

    " I have read a lot of Lisa Jackson books. I like them when I am reading them, but can't remember much about them when finished. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy Elbinger | 1/9/2012

    " Lisa Jackson kept me guessing all the way to the end of this book. I cared so much about Cissy, Jack and BJ that I stayed up way past my bedtime, going from one surprising twist and turn to the next. Jackson is a master storyteller, and I've added her to my favorite authors list! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brittany | 1/1/2012

    " I felt as if i had deja vu reading this book. It seemed alot similar to the first book If She Only Knew that Almost Dead was set after. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nikki | 8/2/2011

    " Had me on the edge of my seat. A friend turned me on to Lisa Jackson and I'm so glad she did. "

    " This book was very long and full of surprises. It was great that I didn't have everything figured out, even in the last chapters of the book. However, there were many times when I thought the book was never going to end. "
