Thrilling and gut-wrenching. This is a thriller that made me think.
Was dissappointed in this. First of Scottolne’s books I didn’t lke. Took way too long to get to the point. With useless descriptions of things. Don’t recommend this one.
I thought it was a good read. Maybe parts of the story were a little unbelievable, but I still couldn't stop reading till I got to the end. I liked the main character, Rose, for her persistence, seeking truth and forgiveness.
I didn't love this book, but still couldn't put it down. It reads like Jodi Picoult, but I couldn't stand the main character. The plot, however, was interesting enough that I wanted to know what would happen next, even if I didn't particularly care for the writing.
Although the plot gets somewhat far fetched, the writing is intriguing enough to make the reader wonder what he or she would do if faced with a moral dilemma like who to save in a fire.
This is a poorly written book with a story line that is not at all a believable. The jacket cover seemed like it would be an intriguing story but it turns into a weak mystery that makes no sense. Seems like the author had a good idea but didn't know where to go with it so half way thru changed it into a mystery. Formula writing at it's weakest. Thank goodness the chapters were short and you could zoom thru it without wasting alot of time.
Save me, save me from ever reading a book like this again.
I thought it would be a good story about bullying, instead it is a book about suburban stay at home mom turned private investigator - like a very poor and predictable Nancy Drew book. There is no legal knowledge like you would find in a John Grisham book. Some chapters are only two pages long. The bad guy just pops into the story line near the end. But don't worry, in the end everything is wrapped up nicely in a saccarine sweet pink bow and everyone is happy and lovely and bullies are not bullies anymore (without any kind of intervention) and there are unicorns and rainbows. (kidding about the unicorns and rainbows).
Hated it. Listened to audiobook version and decided half-way through the 2nd cd to stop listening; I found it excruciating. I normally like Lisa Scottoline's stories about good-friend women lawyers, but not this one.
Rose McKenna, lunch mom and parent of a bullied child, lives through a kitchen explosion and fire at school. After directing two girls out of the building she has to go back and rescue her daughter who is locked in a bathroom. After they barely make it out she discovers one of the other girls, who just happens to be her daughter's bully, ran back into the school and is gravely injured. What follows is just so utterly ridiculous that as I listened to this book in my car I had to stop the audiobook occasionally to yell at the characters. Maybe I can accept that the whole town would hate this woman but when she begins to investigate the explosion and discovers a conspiracy which ends in a horrible bloody fight in a potato chip factory it's just laughable.
I had a hard time getting thru this book, and returned it 1/2 way thru only to take it out again a month or more later to finish. I liked the second half much better than the first, but it still is by far my least favourite Lisa Scottoline book. (She is one of my favourite authors usually.) It was so sappy and the way mom and daughter spoke to each other got on my nerves. Once the little girl was less in the story I could tolerate it more.....I think Lisa should stick with the Lawyer dramas.
