Life goes on. That's what young widow Rose Larabee tells herself each day as she has to be both mother and father to her two young children, a task that leaves little time for new romance. That's why she's surprised to find the simple, homemade valentine in her mailbox, a paper heart with no signature. It could be a sweet reminder, but for Ro

3.5/5 Wendy Corsi Staub is a new to me author, but definitely not a new author - she has close to eighty books to her credit!

She Loves Me Not has been recently released as an audio book.

Rose Larrabee is a widowed mother of two. She's working hard to keep things together, both financially, physically and emotionally. When someone leaves a heart shaped box of candy on her car seat, she figures she has a secret admirer. But when someone repeatedly calls in the middle of the night, she starts to ge

The writing style was pleasing, the story line had potential. The characters ruined the effect, however. Weak, whiny "I need a man!, Why doesn't my man love me enough? When is a man going to rescue me?" females. Very annoying voice for the 3 year old--does the author really think 3 yr olds speak this way? Took me a painful 5 wks to get through this short book. By the time I got to the end, I didn't even care whodunnit. Crossing this author off my list.
This kept me turning pages late into the night! I thought for sure I had the killer pegged but oh, I was sooo wrong!!

What a story! I was left right up to the end wondering who exactly the culprit was even though we'd had a name for him. It was incredible how the story went through so many twists and turns and left me wondering what was going to happen next.

This novel is definitely a page-turner and had my heart racing near the end as the mystery began to unravel. I really felt that the novel ended on the right foot and the ending wasn't too abrupt. Lastly, I love the way this novel is written and I feel it ca
I'm always trying to find new mystery authors, so when I saw on Amazon and Good Reads that this one had an average of 3.5 stars, I thought I'd give it a try. It was okay. The writing style was very Mary Higgins Clark-ish. And while I enjoyed MHC's books when I first got into mysteries, I now find them to be very formulaic and predictable. I guess I've read too many psychological and deep/dark mysteries now because this one seemed to be too amateurish in comparison. The murderer was easy to predi ...more
This is my 3rd Wendy Corsi Staub book and my favorite so far. "She Loves Me Not" is suspenseful and keeps you guessing through most of the book. Ms. Staub does a great job of going back and forth between scenes and characters and builds up enough suspicion that the killer could be any one of many characters. She keeps that suspense going through the entire book until the killer is revealed (though I'm proud to say I did figure it out). The characters are all well-developed which makes you care a ...more
I listened to this one on audio book. Overall, not bad though I would consider it fairly light reading rather than a hard punching thriller.

For people who love a really good mystery or thriller, this may not entirely deliver. It wasn't hard to piece things together and the "big reveal" wasn't really a surprise. I also found that in audio form at least, several of the women came across incredibly whiney and infuriating to the point I wanted to smack them and tell them to grow a back bone!

All the enjoyable WCS elements are here: she lays out the potential bad guys throughout the first third of the story so you can get into "who's going to do it" mode. Quick read, kept my interest, resisted looking at the last page.

I am completely blown away that this book was better than the last. Wendy has not disappointed me. I would recommend this book it had everything. I am looking forward to my next choice.

I just wanted to finish it

I just wanted to finish it

it was an ok read. I thought I would have figured the killer but was unable to. Again, I just wanted to finish it.
It was my first Staub book...seemed a little difficult to get into. Then it just was sort of boring to me. It was good enough to finish. But I did not manage to get the prologue read.
Highly addictive read, kept me turning the pages and up well past my bedtime! Ms. Staub is the master at writing thrilling page turners!!
This was a murder mystery I could not solve, there were so many suspects. Very enjoyable!
Janet Robel
Good mystery! I never figured out who the killer was until the very end.

This book was so good, loved the characters!!!!!!! I loved the suspense and mystery!
Good book but not one of my favorites.

Starting a bit slow, but she has written some winners... one of which I still think about often as a great mystery novels. I've read a couple stinkers by her, too, though. :)

This one is good... keeping me in suspense. I have decided Corsi Staub does the best with the woman in danger/single mother/mother with workaholic husband novel. :) My other favorite by her is in that same genre.

Not bad, but it wrapped up a little too quickly for me. I didn't figure out whodunnit though.

All my guesses at "whodunit" were wrong! Very nicely done, excellent suspense, and how frustrating that it all took place before cell phones were ubiquitous!
This was a good book, I do love this author but one of the problems I have is I often feel like it drags a lot through the middle. I totally didn't guess who the guily party was because nothing about this person led the reader to believe it was possible. This ruined the fun a little bit for me, because when it finally came out I was more thinking 'WTF?!?!" instead of "OMG!!!" ... Slightly disappointed.
I've read several of her books and enjoyed all of them. She reminds me a lot of Mary Higgins Clark. This one was really good. She does a great job of drawing you into her main character's life. You really feel the fear and tension building as the situation develops. She does a pretty good job of misdirection, so you don't realize whodunit until the end.
This was not one of Staub's best efforts, but it held my interest enough to finish it easily. It was more of a light romance than a horror story or mystery. I must say, though, that I didn't figure out who was the villain until the very last chapter. The epilogue was kind of sappy, but it did tie up all the loose ends.
This book was great! I stayed up into the morning hours plenty of times reading it! I also carried it everywhere with me to grab a few minutes to read here & there. I loved the plot. The characters were enjoyable, my favorite being Rose. I was kept guessing until the very end. I look forward to reading more books by this author!
I can see why the author is compared to Mary Higgins Clark. They are pretty similar. I definitely kept guessing the whole time I was reading. Sometimes it's nice to take a break between books that are deep and filled with heavy material and just curl up with a "whodunit."
Wendy Staub weaves a tale of murder, suspense, hope and love. I didn't guess the true identity of the murderer, but then I am dense and never do. This is also a tale of loss and rebuilding life. If you like mystery and romance, you will enjoy this book.
YOWZA...I thought every person was the culprit! Usually, I can figure out who the perpetrator is before you really find out for sure. That didn't happen in this book! In my opinion, everybody was a suspect! This book kept me on the edge of my seat!

Recommends it for: Anyone who enjoys a good suspense novel.
Recommended to Dawn by: I read all of Wendy Corsi Staub's books.
Another great suspense by Staub that kept me guessing until the very end. She almost never disappoints & really enjoy reading her books. She writes great suspense that leaves you reading until late in the night.
Good book. Had potential to be more suspenseful, dark, and mysterious than it was, but it was alright for a story line that has a been there, done that 'mystery'.
Kept me guessing till close to the end - I liked the vignettes that the author created... a good beach read.
Usually I can figure these out...I didnt on this one. She leaves you hanging until the very end.
Definitely a very good book .... This is an author that I will continue to read.
