As a teenager, Jane Killian's life was changed when she was hit by a motorboat as she swam in a lake. Now 17 years later, after many successful surgeries, Jane has a thriving career in art, a handsome husband, and a baby on the way. But her world splinters when her husband, Dr. Ian Westbrook, becomes the prime suspect in a murder investigation led by Jane's stepsister, Detective Stacy Killian. Stacy doesn't want to believe her brother-in-law is a murderer, but all evidence is pointing to him. Ja ...more
A great fast-paced book that was not easy to put down! Read in two sittings. A great romantic suspense that had me hooked very early on. Kept me interested and guessing right until the end that had a final unexpected twist!

Highly recommended!
Awesome book! suspenseful and like most of Erica Spindler's books, couldn't put it down. Veryy twisted ending...kept me guessing til the very end.

When fifteen-year-old Jane Killian accepts her older sister Stacy's dare to swim across the freezing lake, she has absolutely no idea just how much her life will change by the end of that March afternoon. Within the short period of time that it takes her to complete her swim and turn back towards the lakeshore, Jane is threatened by a boat speeding across the lake. She narrowly escapes being killed that day, but the shock and fear the encounter sparks in her soul will remain with Jane forever.

I have had See Jane Die by Erica Spindler on my TBR list for what seems like years. I am not sure why it took me so long to finally read it, but it sure was worth the wait. I loved everything about this book; I even stayed up all night because I had to know the ending. I will certainly read more of this series and this author. 5 stars

I actually read Killer takes all and See Jane Die backwards, but Erica made it clear enough that I understood what was going on in both books. Easy to read! Not easy to put down :)

Loved it! Shocking and unpredictable ending! Couldn't put it down!!

Erica Spindler's See Jane Die is a suspenseful thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very ending. Its also one that doesn't give you a clue at the "whodunitt" either, so if you're like me, its pretty darn hard not to flip to the last page to see if everything worked out well for the chacters in the story. Jane Killian is a woman with much to live for. After a boating accident as a teen left her disfigured, she has rebuilt her life and her face, thanks to many surgeries. ...more
Fun and suspenseful. Erica Splinder has a great talent for taking old plot formulas and then adding a little twist here and a turn there to make it a great read.
This was the first book I've read by Erica Spindler and I must say it was definitely one of those "can't stop reading and put it down" kind of books. Erica is a mastermind who successfully captured this reader's attention!I'm looking forward to reading the next one in this series and her other books as well.
Too many cliches for my taste- sisters who don't get along, the tough-as-nails cop who really a soft side but is afraid to show it, the girl who thinks she's ugly even though she's really pretty. I didn't get very far into the book and maybe it does get better but I've already got a pretty good notion of who the killer is and frankly, I think I'm going to set this book down and move on to greener pastures.
This one keeps you guessing until the real killer is revealed..Didn't guess this one and I love to be surprised!

As a teenager, Jane was swimming and hit by a boater. The accident left her disfigured but with numerous surgeries, she became a beautiful woman after years of being bullied. She is married to a doctor (Ian) and is pregnant. Her sister - Stacey is a detective. When Jane's husband is arrested and accused of a murder, Stacey comes back into Jane's life. Stacey was cut out of the will and
I originally had this pegged for a solid 4 star book, but some interesting twists caused me to evaluate it more favorably.

I love that this is a series with a tough lady detective who spells her name with a y. What's not to like about that?

I hope Jane isn't a permanent main feature in the series, as I found her rather boring.
This book pleasantly surprised me. Going into it, I had no real expectations about whether this would be good or not and I ended up thoroughly enjoying it. It wasn’t that easy of a read but it flowed smoothly and the story developed naturally.

I found this book in a box that my boyfriend’s mom was going to put out for a garage sale and since my Nook was out of battery and I had nothing better to do, I gave it a shot. Little did I know that Erica Spindler would become one of my favorite writers af

This is my second Erica Spindler book, and while the first book made me make a major lifestyle change, I really enjoyed this book. The plot was fast-paced and really did leave you guessing until the very end. If the first two Spindler books are any indication of her other work, she designs her detective series (Stacy Killian) as an important but secondary character to the main character. It's a fantastic twist on all the other character-based series in which the main protagonist is also the main ...more

My Thoughts:

When it comes to suspense that not only leaves your pulse pounding, but robs you of your breath, Spindler is the gal to do it. I have been a “Spindlette” ever since I read Bone Cold in 2001… Wow, I’m having a bit of a tough time digesting that it’s been ten years since picking it up, too. I read EVERYTHING the gifted visionary creates. I often reread my favorites when I am missing my favorite characters and when I need a dose of Spindler.

See Jane Die is a delicious stay up all night
Erica Spindler has the uncanny knack of outdoing herself with each and every novel. This newest one was so gripping, I kept turning page after page after page and was toting the book everywhere-in the car, to the doctor's, to the school to pick up my kids and even to the bathtub! lol

Nearly killed as a teenager by a hit and run boater, Jane Killian is a woman with everything to live for. A series of surgeries restored her lovely face. She
I was excited at first to read the book because of the positive reviews below. 1st chapter is great, It got me interested. then i was introduce to roller coaster of characters and everything went downhill from there. i just found them talking and thinking nonsense. I dont feel for the characters and actually wondered why this book is about Stacy. I got irritated because theres no emotion attached to their ramblings regardless how Ms. spindler put the stress on each characters past. I ended up sk ...more

What an amazing book. Thoroughly enjoyed it and kept me intrigued right until the very end. Although I guessed who was behind it all, there was still another twist right at the end that took me by surprise. A very big well done Erica. A seamless book that flowed right through. Loved it.

Erica Spindler weaves you straight into the lives of some wickedly insane plot and you are hooked. You don't know who to trust anymore, because the people you do trust are not who you think, a wicked roller coaster ride straight to he'll!!!
I loved this book. it was awesome! I really thought that I had the killer figured out a few times and then bam another curve ball. I would absolutely recommend this book to everyone and I am looking forward to reading the next book!
This was a good, fast-paced read. I did have a feeling that the first twist was coming, but I never saw the second one coming! I love that!
Maybe I didn't find it as shocking as everybody else here because I read the reviews prior to reading and knew from the beginning it would be somebody I least expected. Which is typical I guess. When all of the characters started dying, I figured it would be an "either/or". Turns out it was another conjunction all together. Probably deserves 5 stars, but I personally wasn't obsessed with the story like I have been with others. Won't find out who actually did it until the last few pages. Literall ...more
I loved it, all of Erica Spindler's books are so suspenseful, I lost sleep last night because I had to finish the book, I had to know what happened.
I really liked this book.. This is no surprise for me since I like all of Erica's books! I found myself upset when I had to put the book down to do other stuff.. Like eat.. LOL!
I really liked Mac... Again.. All of her male characters appeal to me.. She really really writes romance well!! It's not corny or whimsical BS.. It's well.. Sexy in the good way but not over the top about it.. Natural I suppose.. I liked both female characters too.. I was happy they bonded.. Dave and Teddy bothered me..
Kathleen Hammer
This book was a fast read. It will keep you guessing until the very end!

Really good. I loved that it took place in Dallas! Did spindler live there? Locations were spot on.
Traci Hill
