    " This book for me is a 3.5 star. What does that mean? It means that it is a good book and I would recommend it. However, it was not overly original. The reason I did not give it four stars is because I was never suprised by what happened next. (I'm the type of person who NEVER figures out what is going on!) It was pretty straight forward. No brainer. I kept seeing this play out in my head like I was watching a movie. The only problem with that is I expect a little more from a book. With all of that being said, I would recommend the book I just wouldn't expect to be blown away. "

    " Big fan of this Author's Graveyard Queen series. This book was totally not my cup of tea. I had to force myself to finish it. I thought it was draggy, I didn't like any of the characters, it had dead little children and the most action happened in the last 10 pages then it just ended. With hardly any resolutions. Can't recommend this book but try the author's others. "

    " The Dollmaker wasn't an awful read. It was average. The story was interesting, but the execution of the story was extremely slow. Acually if the parts I scan through were removed, the book would have been a bit above average. "

    " Claire and Dave seem to barely living their lives years after the aftermath of their daughter getting kidnapped. Both have seemingly moved on, but only at the surface, neither had really done anything that allowed them to move on, until Claire glimpse a doll that looks like their daughter. After this their lives start to intersect again with all the things that had been going on in their lives brought out for reexamination. It is during this time that Claire and Dave find out what the other had been hiding from each other along with their own secret agony that they were the one responsible for the horrible act. As the close in on what exactly happened to Ruby they discover people have betrayed them at all turns and maybe there might be a second chance for them after all. "

    " A decent quick read. It's pretty predictable and chock full of " N'awlins " cliches (crawfish, dixieland bands, voodoo, etc), but it was nice to read something that requires little thought after my finals were over. "

    " I received this book from Amazon by mistake a couple years ago & it's been sitting on my bookshelf ever since. Decided to take it on spring break and am so glad I did. I really enjoyed it & will definitely read other books by this author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/25/2013

    " I enjoyed The Restorer more. Still, this wasn't bad. I would have enjoyed it more if there had been more focus on solving the kidnapping; that felt very rushed at the end. There isn't a real feeling of closure. "

    " I loved this book but I did not like how it the book ended. "

    " Very good book. Was surprised at the end. Hard for me to find a book that surprises me at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 11/19/2013

    " Great author, but I only rated a four because it seemed like the ending was too quick and left a lot of unanswered questions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elaine | 10/25/2013

    " This book has a wonderfully imaginative premise and well crafted characters. Not as strong on either suspense or chills as I would have expected from reading the cover blurbs, but a story worth reading nonetheless. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mariola Clark | 10/16/2013

    " This was an interesting book. It took a long time to tie to the various plot lines together. The ending was then very abrupt. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 9/3/2012

    " This book did not turn out to be as good as I thought it would. It was an interesting concept, but I felt the story plodded along & then wrapped up in a quickie ending. "

    " I LOVED IT!! It was sort of typical to most thriller/horror/mystery books, but still exquisitely written and laid out. "

    " I liked the aspect of police corruption that was a secondary plot throughtout the novel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda | 3/5/2011

    " I found this rather dissapointing. The story seemed choppy and then it just sort of ended, without any explanation (at least for me). "

    " Blehhhhh. It takes 15 chapters to get Dave on the case and the ending is WEAK.

    Don't bother. "
