Wednesday January 19th, WOW Pick

It's once again time to join Jill at Breaking the Spine for her weekly Wednesday Meme "Waiting on Wednesday" and this week one of my favorite authors, Lisa Gardener has a new
book coming out in March. I love listening to her books on audio.

Lisa Gardner, Bantam, $26 (368p) ISBN 978-0-553-80725-7
Near the start of Thriller Award–winner Gardner's gripping fifth novel featuring Boston PD Sgt. Det. D.D. Warren (after Live to Tell), D.D.'s former partner and one-time lover, Det. Bobby Dodge, of the Massachusetts State Police, asks her to look into what appears to be a clear-cut homicide case. The evidence suggests that Tessa Leoni, a state trooper colleague of Bobby's, shot and killed her abusive husband, Brian Darby, who may have kidnapped her six-year-old daughter, Sophie. But Tessa won't talk about her bruises, her husband, or what might have happened to her child. D.D. examines every detail about the family, while Tessa uses her skills to manipulate the investigation. From Tessa's point of view, we learn about her and Brian's courtship, his affection for Sophie, and how the marriage began to disintegrate. Gardner sprinkles plenty of clues and inventive twists to keep readers off-kilter as the suspense builds to a realistic, jaw-dropping finale. Author tour. (Mar.) - Publishers Weekly

This is one I'll be looking for, too. I read my first Lisa Gardner novel last year and now I think I'm hooked!

Here's what I'm waiting on.

Hmm...this sounds good. I don't really read these kind of stories, but I realize I've been missing out after digging into Silent Scream by Karen Rose. It was so good, I need to check out more like it. I'm adding your choice to my TBR list. Thanks.

I love reading reviews and finding out what others think of certain books. This is NICE.
I pretty much lean to historical novels..ones with lots of research..but now and then it's fun to try something different.

Thank you so much for stopping by and for the encouragement. It is already going on longer than we thought...Looks like next week there will still be lots of construction going on.

I am making a note of this book...thanks!
