review 1: I've read a number of Lisa Unger's books and I thought this was the best so far. I was riveted to the story line from beginning to end. Lana Granger is an intriguing character in that she has lived a life of lying to the extent that she no longer has a grasp of the truth. She ...

review 1: I’ve read most if not all of Unger’s books and this is another in the same vein. I got it at a discount book shop where it had “Stellar read” on the cover, and this about covers it. Part Jodie Picoult family tensions, part crime thriller, it provides quick engagement and is easy ...

review 1: Absolutely loved it but I could see and understand why it upset some people. It is dark, deliciously so but I am going through my dark and twisty phase so its right up there. Ophelia/Anne is the product of a single mother who falls in love with an inmate and relocates them to FL ...

review 1: I have to say, this book really didn't do it for me. It did catch my attention in the beginning, and I kept reading because I really had no clue as to where the story was leading. But about half way through, I found myself force-reading so I could just finish. The author jumps ar...

review 1: Even though I had not read the first Ridley Jones I found I quickly became involved in the story. I liked how the author presented details from the first book. This is an interesting book. There are so many great ideas about identity, family relationships and how we perceive ...

review 1: good writing style, fun summer read and good in depth execution of portraying the characters. However,abig HOWEVER. this book was marked with the stamp 'queen of the psychological thriller' and had recommendations by authors of the likes of lee child and other 'big names'. But th...

review 1: Glad I read Fragile first - a lot of the same characters - plot easier to follow after recalling the history from the first book. Dealt with more dark issues - blind rage, unnatural parent/child attachment, sociopath husband, compulsive lying, stepparent/stepchild relationships....

review 1: This book had a can't put it down quality. The suspense and the lack of reliability of the narrator kept me guessing. At times, the twists and turns could actually become confusing, but even then I just wanted to read more to try to understand. I was a little bit disappointed at ...

review 1: I really liked Beautiful Lies, the first in this series of two books about Ridley Jones. It had a lot of action and I thought it would make a great movie. Sliver of Truth is not that book. Ridley is extremely introspective, and even whiny, in this book as she realizes that her...

review 1: Three and a half stars.This is another book that features a dysfunctional mother and daughter relationship, which seems to be a common theme in fiction. Birdie is a most unlikeable character and her husband, Joe, just opts out of anything he finds too difficult. Their daughter, K...

review 1: This is a book of the Hollows, and although it stands on it's own fairly well, you really need to have read the other Hollows book to get into it. The back stories of the characters aren't really explained so it would leave you a little bit out of the loop. I do like having books...
