  • One of the best books I’ve read this year!

    #AfterAnna #NetGalley **I received a copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review** Better wait until you have plenty of time to start this because you want be able to put it down. No one got fed at my house while I was reading lol. The ending floored me. This author is brilliant! And whatever you do, don’t peak at the ending. It will ruin it. Imagine having you baby taken from you because of post partum. Your husband divorces you and you’re not allowed to see your child. The one day when that child is in high school, she calls you and wants to meet. You have a second chance. She moves in with you and you new husband who has a young son himself from a previous marriage. It’s like the perfect family you always dreamed of. And then things start taking a strange turn. This is what happened to Maggie and her family. Her husband is suddenly on trial for a murder he may not have committed, or did he? The murder of Anna, Maggie’s daughter. But how well does Maggie know her daughter? I can’t stress how thrilling this book was. Now I want to read it over again. I envy those of you who are going to read it the first time.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • After Anna

    After Anna is the latest story by Lisa Scottoline. After Anna takes us back and forth in time from the point of view of two main characters. Fair warning, this book is difficult to put down and about three quarters of the way through it is almost impossible to do so. I was given an early copy to review.

  • Scottoline has done it again!

    No surprise, Lisa Scottoline has done it again. I pre-order all her books without fail so that I can have it in my hands the day it’s released, and I clear my calendar because I know I am going to want to read it straight through. No surprise again, After Anna had me riveted from first page to last. We spend almost all of our time in the book with Noah, Maggie, Caleb and Anna. Except for Caleb, who’s 10 years old and what you see is what you get, you don’t know what the rest of them will be up to from one page to the next. The format of the book is unique, but it works. Works very well, because the suspense starts on the first page and never lets up. After Anna is told from the alternating POVs of Noah and Maggie. Noah’s starts with the last day of the trial, just before the verdict comes in, and goes backwards in time. Maggie’s POV is Before. You learn a little more with each chapter about what happened, or supposedly happened, but I couldn’t decide who was telling the truth and who was the liar, who was the victim and who was the perpetrator, who might have an ulterior motive or a hidden past, and for a time I wondered if someone could be just plain crazy. The story twists and turns and I had no idea what was coming. Total surprise right up to the end. After Anna is filled with emotion and thrills. Read it now: it will only take you a day or so because once you pick it up you won’t be able to put it down until you reach the very satisfying ending.

  • Wow- Domestic Thriller

    Wow, just wow. So many twists and turns, I had a hard time putting this book down. The story is told in two parts, before Anna and After Anna. Alternating chapters go through the court case of Dr Noah Alderman killing his stepdaughter, Anna and the other chapter leads us up to the death of Anna. All through the book I did not like Anna, but could not pin point why, but then I knew at the end of the book. This book will keep you guessing- Did Noah really kill Anna, and if he didn't who did?? I highly recommend this domestic thriller book.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Unpredictable

    Thank you to St. Martin's Press and NetGalley for the advance e-copy of After Anna by Lisa Scottoline in exchange for an honest review. Although the author writes strong legal series, this standalone novel captures your attention from the beginning. Maggie and Noah have married, each for the second time. All appears well until Anna enters the picture. She is Maggie's teenage daughter, who was taken from her in infancy, by Maggie's then-husband who had her declared an unfit parent. When Anna's father dies suddenly, Maggie and Anna are reunited after years of estrangement. So far, so good. The rest you will need to read on your own. To tell you more would be a spoiler. This is a fast-paced, suspenseful novel that does not let up. Each chapter is headed either by Maggie or Noah, before or after Anna. This is a very effective style of writing because it sheds light on both sides of the story. Read this book and you will be astounded. Predictable it is not.

    Thanks for your feedback!
