I was looking for another crime series to read and I had heard good things about Lisa Gardener so I thought I would give Look for Me a read. When I picked the book to read I didn’t realise that this was book 9 in the series, I was lucky that I didn’t need to read the first 8 books to enjoy the book.
D.D Warren is called out to a the home of a family of five, where 4 members have been murdered and the oldest daughter Roxanna is missing. Was she lucky and escaped the murderer or is it more sinister. Flora Dane survivor come avenger hers about the case and starts her own investigation to find and help Roxanna as Flora sees a victim and D.D see a potential suspect. D.D and Flora are seeking different investigation and justice but in the end they both want to catch the murder.
One of my favourite and most emotional parts of the book, is Roxanna school paper about family and her time in the foster system. I found this was a really interesting way into looking into her past, as well as making the retelling much more heart breaking in the way in which she speak so matter a fact about it.
I really liked Lisa Gardner writing style and in the way she brought D.D investgation, Flora vigilantism, and Roxanna school paper to make an interesting and gripping story. I especially liked the sarcastic/ witty banter between Flora and D.D it gave me a break from the more series elements in the book.
I will look at reading the other book in the series, specifically Flora story in Find Her.
I would advise anyone that likes crime fiction to give this book a read. It will be another book I will be passing on to my gran.
I give this book 4 out of 5.
Thank you to Netgalley for a copy of this book to review for a honest review.
Look for Me comes out in the UK 8-Feb-2018.
