I will be on vacation the end of August, I'm off to Dublin for my very first overseas trip. I plan to video blog my daily exploits & adventures. I will also be attending the release of one of my favorite authors John Connolly's latest book, "Wrath of Angels" while there. I will post plenty of pics.
I have had lots of time to read and am enjoying every minute. I just finished Lisa Gardner's "The Neighbor" I have read many of Lisa's books and have never been disappointed. "The Neighbor" kept that record intact.
Sandy is a twenty-three year old teacher who comes home from a typical day with her four year old daughter Clarissa. She tends to the mundane, everyday rituals of her life. Grading papers, fixing dinner, bath time for Clarissa, stories & kisses, time for bed. Her husband Jason comes home after working overtime to find his wife has disappeared and his daughter alone, sleeping in her bed.
Detective Sargent DD Warren must figure out if the old cliche "the husband did it" holds true, because the life of a child is in the balance. Sandy's husbands past has holes big enough to drive a truck through. What's he hiding and does his past hold the answer to Sandy's disappearance? Lisa serves up a virtual smorgasbord of suspects.
Lisa Gardner's writing style, fully evolved characters and clever plot twists kept me reading. I finished it in two days, because I had to find out what happened. I wasn't disappointed. I don't think you will be either.
