Review "Live To Tell"


Live To Tell by Lisa Gardner
Published by Bantam Books
ISBN 978-0-553-80724-0
At the request of Pump Up Your Book, a PB ARC was sent, at no cost to me, for my honest opinion.
  Synopsis (from back of book):  The lives of three women collide on a suburban night: Veteran Boston police detective D.D. Warren is called to the scene of the murder of a family whose sole survivor lies clinging to life….Nurse Danielle Burton works in a locked-down pediatric psych ward, haunted by a tragedy she’s desperate to conceal….Victoria Oliver will do anything to protect her troubled son-even when the threat comes from within her own home. This investigation will bring these remarkable women together-and sweep all three closer to the edge than they’ve ever been before.
  My Thoughts and Opinion:  I have been a fan of Lisa Gardner’s books for many years and jumped at the chance to read, review and host a “Guest Author Spotlight” for her newest novel. And once again, she delivered a page turning suspenseful read. However, being a mother, the plot regarding the children suffering from severe psychiatric trauma and issues, was heart breaking at times. I enjoy books where the chapters alternate between characters with little cliff hangers that I call a “just one more chapter” read and that was how this book was written. The story takes place over several days, with fast paced suspense that includes 2 multiple domestic murders, kidnapping, an individual suicide or was it, and so much more. And an ending with a surprising twist. A great book that kept this reader guessing as to what was around the next corner. Who survives and lives to tell? A must read !!!

I received a copy of this book, at no charge to me,
in exchange for my honest review.
No items that I receive
are ever sold…they are kept by me,
or given to family and/or friends.

  1. Oh, I love books that suck you in like that too! It sounds like I need to try Lisa Gardner's work.

  2. Ohh! I love to read the book!Most thrillers are quite fast pace and page turners, and a lot of twist but that makes me love it so much.

  3. This one sounds fantastic, great review Cheryl definitely adding to Wishlist. I haven't tried her yet but have a few on my list to read.
