    2. I d like to thank Netgalley for my digital copy in exchange for a fair and honest reviewThis book was PERFECTION for me The cover art Beautiful The writing Easy to read but so eloquently strung together that I was mesmorized The plot Had me on the edge of my seat for 3 days I easily could have devoured this book in one sitting if my schedule had allowed It has been awhile that I have been so emotionally invested in a book, not for only the suspense, but also for the characters This is one to wat [...]

    8. I found this read to be quite a struggle in all honesty It is a read that cannot quite decide what genre it is going to fit in On the one hand it could be a relationship drama as we have Tess and Jake who, after years of unsuccessful IVF treatments followed by a failed adoption, are at a point in their marriage where they can barely stand to speak to each other But, what happens when Tess is driving late at night and finds very young child wandering in the road who then disappears into the woods [...]

    15. I don t like to write negative reviews, so I thought about not writing anything This 2.5 star rating is my opinion, and for most of my friends this book has been highly reviewed.The reason I didn t enjoy it was mainly due to the swearing It bothers me when the Lord s name is taken in vain, and I really don t like to read it I didn t connect with the main character, Tess She got drunk several times, and made some dangerously stupid choices.This is my 6th T Greenwood novel, and I ve really only li [...]


    16. Some fellow readers would give this book 4 stars I d not question their judgement But 5 no Writing is repetitive verbose vignetting is not a participle anxiety gnaws me like a small but determined chipmunk is a hilariously bad simile Also plotlines that contribute nothing like Charlie the novelist who uses a manual typewriter retypes every word of each draft as well Jake s mother s having an aneurysm But basic plot was excellent you can really speed read this one because you can skip nearly eve [...]

    19. I seriously don t know how she does it This is T Greenwood swhat 10th novel Each one is gorgeous and amazing yet she always tops herself This one has of a mystery bent than her prior novels, but still carries with it her trademark depth The style and cadence of her prose captivates me every time I literally did not put this down until I finished it.



    20. I waited patiently for the release of T Greenwood s latest novel and I am so glad a did LOVED IT I especially loved the correlation to Breathing Water, another one of my favorites Greenwood has an amazing ability to link some of her books in the most subtle ways I love the setting on Lake Gormlaith as it reminds me of summers spent on a lake in Maine and her descriptions of the scenery made me feel like I was there.I found the plot and characters to be very relevant and though she is so flawed, [...]

    25. I had a really hard time getting into this book and decided it wasn t so much the story as the story telling The primary current day plot of the missing girl is exceptional I loved the title of the book in relationship to this plot It was a perfect choice For those who read the book I think they will enjoy this element The story focuses on Tess and unfortunately, I was not enad with Tess Tess had lots of problems maybe the main one was being Tess The rest of the characters are only developed as [...]

    28. This was a one day read, page turner of a book Suspenseful with beautifully rendered characters, and my first by this author Highly recommended.


    29. Original review can be found at kristineandterri 2 I received an advanced readers copy from Kensington via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Thank you Where I Lost Her was two stories woven beautifully into one There was the mystery behind the little girl on one side and Tess s relationship and well being on the other I worried that the two wouldn t blend well but my worries were unwarranted The story grabbed me and didn t let go until I finished the last page.While visiting friends at [...]
