I never know what to expect from a Lisa Unger novel, as she weaves a unique brand of story every time she writes a novel. I am constantly surprised and delighted at where she takes me in the realm of mystery novels. Some good authors use the same formula over and over again, ad nauseum, but Lisa doesn't disappoint! This is an awesome read!
A story of three generations of women at a remote beach house, with conflicting personalities. They rally with courage in response to threatening visitors.
Enjoyable suspense novel. I like how Unger gets us into the characters heads. Though there is plenty of action, there?s no rush to get to it. This increases the suspense. My only complaint would be that after everything?s over her books seem to go on a little longer than needed.
Found this book to be quite boring - a Harlequin-type book (chick read). Don't think any males would be interested. A disappointment overall.
I didn't see this as a mystery as most of the author's previous works - "Heartbroken" ismore of a story about a scarred and contention-weary family with more unhappiness than a family should have. I loved the characters, particularly Birdy, who is bitter and rigid in her thinking (we've all known some Birdys in our lives). Kate is amazing, real and down to earth. All in all, a great read.
I really liked the early Lisa Unger books (like Beautiful Lies), but she seems to be moving away from mystery/suspense toward themes about family/women/motherhood. I thought this book was interesting/okay, but not as absorbing/intense/surprising as those early novels.
Dysfunctional families, ghosts, dark memories - who needs 'em.
Chick lit at its worst.
