I almost didn’t read this book cuz of some of the reviews, which is why I’m writing a review.. I LOVED this book even tho I don’t like war stories. Lisa is one of my favorite authors and she did a great job on this book which is so different from the others she’s written.
I really couldn’t put it down! I think I read this one much faster than the others. I needed to know what happened to Mike, the main character, and see if he could solve all the mysteries. Sooooooo good!
This book was okay. Not my favourite by her. I do find it drags on a bit once he returns home until the very ending of the book. Overall i give it three stars.
I generally really like Scottoline’s books but found this one dragged on a bit until the last few chapters where it got really good. An okay read.
I read this in one sitting! Couldn't put it down. Army doctor Mike Scanlon must fight the most important battle of his life to save his family.
A satisfying read. High interest, fast moving, characters are interesting (likeable as well as unlikeable) and the plot weaves in and out. Just when you think you have it figured out, things change. A good quick read.
Absolutely loved this book! Mike must deal with tragedies from Afghanistan, the loss of his wife, and rejection by his little girl. The plot moves smoothly and quickly through the ensuing events to create a compelling story. Would definitely recommend it.
An OK read, it at least provided insight to the world of the army and it's long lasting nightmares. I found the story was repetitive and lacked momentive and then it was quickly wrapped up in the last few chapters. She has written better novels. This is just mediocre.
Very well written, definitely a good read.
Keeps the reader's attention. I enjoyed the story and the mystery that went along with it.
Loved this book. Different than my usual reads, the story was sad and gives insight into what a person deals with when they are grieving over multiple losses. Would recommend
First book I read by this author and it did NOT live up to the hype. I thought Mike Scanlon was not a believable character and overall it was a disappointment. I am unlikely to try another by this author....
LOVED this book! Read it in one day, Couldn't put it down! Hooked from the beginning. Thought I had it figured out but apparently didn't! Love the twists and definitely loved the ending. Will for sure be recommending this book to friends
this is for 737knox the people above liked the book so what r u talking about, and the book was excellent u apparently dont like good books, and as for ilovestorytime u and 737knox wouldnt know a good book if it hit u in the head.
This is very different from Sccottoline's other books, but it's very contemporary and very emotional. She does sneak in a humorous chapter about the young father attempting to put together a crib by himself.
Dr. Mike Scanlon, a surgeon, is serving in Afghanistan when his life begins to fall apart. As we follow Dr. Mike and his ordeal I keep urging him "Don't Go." He does, however, and I'm still full of sympathy for him. As he gets from one mishap to the other I root for him and hope that everything will turn out OK n the end - that he will be the perfect daddy for little Emily. I could tell you what happens but then you'd miss reading one heck of an emotional thriller.
Great story! I loved it! You can always count on Lisa Scottoline for a good story.
A good stand-alone by Scottoline. She's starting to encroach on Kristen Hannah territory. After barely even including men in some of her past books, or including men as cardboard cutouts, she made one her main character. Way to go! Yes! Men. have. emotions. My only complaint would be that everything was resolved super-fast in the last few pages. Left me feeling a bit shell-shocked.
I agree with above.. Plot was awful - did not enjoy at all but skimmed through to see if it would get any better - it didn't. Usually love her books
I love Scottoline but I couldn't get into this one. I read the beginning, the end and part of the middle.
