I enjoyed this book and couldn't wait to find out what the actually story was. That being said, I got really, really sick of the "Vero learned to fly" over and over and over again. This definitely wasn't one of Lisa Gardner's best books, but it did hold my attention. Was glad when the truth finally came out, but felt there were still a couple of loose ends that I would have liked to have seen tied up.

What a shame! I used to like Gardner's books, I gave up on the D.D. Warren series a long time ago, got tedious but I keep trying, however:

this one is so slow and so draggy and OMG the repeat repeat repeat, you will get sick of 'Vero', mentioned over and over and over, alright already with Vero can fly--over and over page after page.

by page 100 you haven't gotten past 'the accident' where the first page starts, it 's just a lot of repeat

I had to skip and skim and just fill in the story and get past all the boring slow draggy stuff.

Didn't care for any of the characters and thought the police investigation was lousy

Once you hit a place that you think you know what is happening you'll hit your head and think 'I know where this is going' -- because it's been done before and you won't really be surprised

I have read all of Lisa Gardner's books up to and including this one. This is not one of her best. I agree that the Vero went on and on, but in all fairness, the book did pick up towards the end. I will continue to read her books because they are so good. This one just missed the mark.
