Find Her

Find Her  by Lisa Gardner is a book I received from Bookbridgr.  This book has three different perspectives of the same story going on throughout the book. Two of them is from the same person, one past and one present whilst the other if the perspective of the police. I loved this book, there were times when I found it a tad boring and wanted to skip a chapter, but once I had read it I wanted to know what was going to happen next in the perspective of that person. It was a very enjoyable read and I could not put this book down.

Find Her is about a girl, who, for 472 days was locked in a pine box, at the mercy of a madman. Flora Dane survived her hell with only one goal: develop all the deadly skills necessary to make sure she’s never caught again. However, Another girl goes missing. Detective D.D. Warren believes that Flora may be the key to finding missing college student, Stacy Summers. But she must follow the rules that Flora has no interest in. For Flora, no risk is too great, no cost too high, even if it means playing into a predator’s hands. Two Victims. One Cop.

This book is fast-paced and it keeps you on your toes. It’s so exciting and it really is hard to put this book down. Although I said some bits can be a bit boring, it’s still very difficult to put this book down as I just needed to know more, I needed to know what was going to happen next, this book was so unpredictable and it has you questioning every conclusion you came to. I changed my mind SO many times about who the kidnapper was.


Lisa Gardner does such an amazing job with this book. It is such a good psychological thriller. From start to finish I was completely engrossed in this book. I would recommend this book to anybody who loves to be left wanting to know more, loves all the major twists and how quickly your interpretation of the characters can change, loves suspense novels. If you tick all those boxes, this is the book for you. Therefore, I would rate this book 4.5 stars.


Her Darkest Nightmare

Her Darkest Nightmare by Brenda Novak was a book that I received from bookbrigr. I absolutely LOVED this book. From the moment I picked this book up, I just couldn’t put it down again. It was so gripping and intriguing and I was left wanting so much more!  It is so gut-gripping and it really does leave you breathless and wanting more, it is impossible to stop reading after a chapter has ended because it makes you want to find out what is happening now, and what is going to happen next.

Dr Evelyn Talbot has learnt to live with fear. When she was 16, she was targeted by her boyfriend, Jasper Moore, and survived days of torture. She escaped with her life, however, Jasper managed to disappear before he was caught. Now Evelyn lives in a world of psychopaths. As the head of the Hanover House institute in Alaska, she engages daily with killers who have no remorse, no conscience and a desire to murder her. All Evelyn wants to do is to try to figure out why they do what they do and how to stop them. But when a mutilated body is found in her Alaskan town she is forced to question herself, her inmates and whether her darkest nightmare has come back to taunt her.

This book completely kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the entire book. Novak was brilliant whilst writing this book. The plot was amazing, she used emotional intensity and she had true to life characters. This book was so satisfying, it’s such a great book to get lost in.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves mysteries, anyone who, like me, has a huge passion for books and loves to be left wanting more and really enjoys constant cliff hangers throughout a book. I can’t fault this book at all, therefore  I would give this book a big 5 stars.
