I received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review.
First let me say I love Lisa Gardener her books are really amazing. So when I saw Find Her up for review I figured I would see if I could review it. I haven't read anything about D.D. Warren so when I saw afterwards this book was number 8 I thought I would be lost. That was far from it it makes a great stand alone though you do wonder who exactly is D.D. Warren.
Right from the beginning I was pulled into the story girl in a coffin say what? What is heck is going on here what story is being told. Well we are told the story of Flora. A girl who was kidnapped for four hundred and seventy two days and at times lived in a coffin. Why you have to read that part to find out.
We learn that Flora has taken it upon herself to read into cases where people have gone missing so when a young woman named Stacey Summers is missing Flora starts investigating. Though it seems that there is more here than meets the eye. Someone from Flora's past is coming into the present you should always know by now that the past has a way of coming back to you.
D.D. is a good detective and I see how hard it is to probably balance home life and work especially in cases like this. I liked how she didn't give in to her injuries even though she was suppose to be just "supervising" it shows how much she loves her job.
I really liked how we went back and forth between the present of trying to not only find Flora and Stacey but also to the past on what happened to Flora. We get to see how Flora survived her ordeal and how it made her stronger though yes maybe reckless.
I liked how the author kept us guessing at who was behind the kidnapping of Stacey but for me it started to finally fall into place close to the end.
I felt so many emotions within this story I couldn't imagine how it would be to live in a coffin and have no room to do anything, heck I couldn't imagine what Flora went though but it felt creepy.
If you want a good mystery I say pick it up. You won't be disappointed.
