    What a great read this author always delivers, so glad I chose this one when I did I read a lot during a holiday commute and could not put it down.Melanie has been adopted into a troubled, rich family who hold many secrets Most of which could she be the daughter of a serial killer She s always felt loved by her grieving mum, her troubled brother, her hard working but gruff father, and lastly her seemingly loving Godfather She s taken the place of the other daughter, Meagan who was brutally murdered at 4 years of age Refusing to believe there could be trouble in this weird paradise.The moment things start going pear shaped we meet FBI Agent David Griffin, the character I most loved to read about I could see him having his own series, I love my cool broody protagonists. He has a past all of his own as don t they all and patiently helps Melanie work out the murky waters that are her adopted family This was a fabulously un put down able thriller of a...

    4.5 5A real page turner The Other Daughter was my first Lisa Gardner s book and I was utterly pleased with it This book had me glued to every single page from the very start to the end.This was a great and entertaining suspense story, full of suspicion, danger, and many puzzles to solve It kept me curious and edgy almost the entire time The plot was exceptional and the characters were appealing, especially the hero, David Riggs, who has such a strong character He s consistent, clever, courageous, and most of all, he never gives in This book gave me the chills while I was reading far into the night and the storyline kept me guessing constantly all the way through Moreover, there were a lot of twists and turns that never stopped surprising me again and again.The Other Daughter had everything I could possibly want in suspense story great plot, interes...

    This is not the first book that I read by Lisa Gardner and it s a good thing If I had, I would not read anything else by her Fortunately, the first book I read by her is part of the DD Warren series and I ve become caught up in the lives of Ms Warren and her former lover Bobby Dodge The Other Daughter has an interesting premise On the day that a convicted serial killer is executed, a young girl is found abandoned in a hospital across the country She s adopted by the Stokes, parents of Meagan Stokes, one of the girls the serial killer has confessed to killing Years later, a reporter down on his luck shows up at the Stokes home and tells Melanie that he believes she s the serial killer s daughter Then everyone is receiving notes saying You get what you deserve What does it all mean Cool, right That s what I thought Unfortunately, there is so much going on in this book that you have the worst time keeping up By the end, the suspenseful twist isn t that suspenseful any because there s all these other suspenseful twists thrown in There s too much details about each character Melanie s ex fiance cheated on her but also told her that he was worse off than her because she was adopted but he wasn t So when she s recounting the story to the FBI agent, it s not clear why she broke up with him Harper, Melanie s father, is charming and wonderful, but also cheats on his wife There s the recovering alcoholic mother, the awesome god fat...

    I purchased this book for my Nook because it was only 5 I feel like I completely overpaid I m really shocked to read all the rave reviews on this site It s as though I ve read a totally different book The writing is amatuerish The dialogue is awful and often awkward The characters are melodramatic and whiney The mystery isn t really much of a mystery at all I had all of the twists figured out before they were revealed The characters in this book are unbelievable Their development pretty much stops at Dad is a greedy yet spineless old man Mom is a weak, dependent, alcoholic, etc There is repetition around these characteristics, but nothing deeper ever emerges The main characters are awful as well I had a really hard time with David the cop because in one paragraph he is made out to be this aging ex athlete with a degenerative spine, which doesn t paint a pretty picture in my mind And then on the next page Melanie will place her hand on his lean stomach or notice the musculature of his pectorals or something horribly cheesy like that Attention authors you can t take an aging, out of shape, old guy and then make him some sort of sex God in the following chapter It doesn t work My mind just had a really hard time creating a picture of him because there were so many details about him that were at odds with each other.The drama surrounding Melanie and her quest to find out who she really is just made me gag I understand the des...

    Melanie Stokes was found in an empty Boston hospital room at the age of 9 with no memory of her life before then, or knowledge of her name She was adopted by Dr Harper Stokes and his wife Patricia who were still reeling over the loss of their daughter Meagan 5 years earlier.Flash forward to the present and Melanie is accosted by a report Larry Digger who claims she is the daughter of the serial killer who killed the Stokes s first daughter DUN DUN DUN.And then you need to relax our mind and forget that you will question the rest Or maybe it is just me.The story got completely crazy and out of control and I predicted half of it but it was mindless and a quick read.I just can t really handle the I smelled him and now I love him I must protect the girl let s become crazy close fast Let s break the laws and or rules of my job because I just met you and OMG I ...

    Lisa Gardner is an author I tried for the first time, about this time, last year.I became a fan quite quickly after reading out of sequence, some of her DD Warren books I found that Lisa developed her characters extraordinarily well in what is usually only a plot driven genre, namely crime fiction.I like Lisa Gardner as much as I like Tess Gerritsen, which is saying something, I like Tell a hell of a lot, and I find the two authors very similar, they write the same genre in a very addictive and compelling way They both write books that beg you to keep reading, forcing you to continue the pages no matter how late in the day it is The difference between the two is that Tess can write both excellent series and standalone books whereas Lisa excels better in her series books I found this standalone book somewhat lacking to the others I have read.That said, this was an enjoyable read It centres around Melanie, a child abandoned in a hospital in Texas as a young girl, subsequently adopted into a wealthy family and given what many would deem, the life of her dreams This becomes complicated by the appearance of a journalist who believes he has some dirt on her namely that she is the daughter of a renowned child serial killer who has just been killed on death row for his crimes Throw ...

    My favorite part in the book Melanie, have you ever had a turning point in your life I know your re only twenty nine, but have you ever felt yourself at a crossroads, when suddenly all of life was murky, and even though you can t see the landscape and you re not sure where you re going, you know you must take a step And that this will be an important step This will be The Step.Yes, I feel this way often as if i m stepping into the darkness and trusting, God knows who, that this step will be the right step In t...
