Dear Reader:

There's something special about your first novel, and See How She Dies is no exception. It was my first romantic suspense, originally published in 1994 under the title Treasures. I love these characters and their story, but still, looking back, I felt I hadn't quite finished. I've learned so much since then that I wanted another crack at it. So I've added mor

The fact that the hero (yeah right) had sex with his step mother just grossed me out. The added fact that he also knowingly had sex with his step-sister (same father) was just too much for me. I just couldn't get past the yuck factor though the author tried to get past this fact in the last chapter. LAME!!!

And don't even get me started on Nelson, Jason and Trisha. What a bunch of money-grubbing assholes. Not a likable on in the entire bunch. They got exactly what they deserved though twenty year

Possibly one of the stupidest plots ever. Adria Nash shows up claiming to be London Danvers who was kidnapped from her very wealth family as a child.

Her half-siblings of course are convinced she is yet another fake even though she bears a strong resemblance to their Step-Mother Kat. Jason (the eldest) hires a private detective to dig up dirt on Adria and uncover the truth. And Zach and Adria fall deeply in love with each other, which is sickening since Adria is suppose to be his HALF-SISTER.

WOW...What a great book! I was a little grossed out by the relationship of the main character and her interest, but since it happened more towards the end of the book, there was no way I was going ti stop reading it! =)

just okay story. I am annoyed by all the typos, though - don't authors have editors and proof readers anymore?

Su historia comienza con un “último aviso” ligeramente sangriento que promete una dosis de intriga bastante interesante. Los capítulos intercalan pasado y presente para relatar, siempre en el momento más oportuno, la investigación que tuvo lugar tras la desaparición de London Danvers. El secreto familiar resulta excelente, ya que está muy bien narrado y la autora hila bastante fino todas las relaciones de sus personajes, que no son pocos.
Sin embargo, su argumento no funciona como novela romántic

you know it's bad when you are composing the bad review in your head while you are still listening to it.

The only good thing about this book was that I didn't know 'who dun it?' until the end, that's the only thing that kept me hanging on.

SPOILERS AHEAD

Full of plot holes

While Lisa Jackson does a great job at creating sympathy for even her antagonists through point-of-view insights and emotions, the book contained too much fantasizing between the two main characters about how they would be in bed. As a reader, I want action. In the case of a romance, I want to see the characters work through those subtle advances of allowing a compliment, allowing closeness, allowing touch, etc.

The novel was somewhat predictable, even with the twist of who the real father is in

I just finished reading this umm *what is the polite way to say effing disgusting sh##* incestuous filth. Hey I'll take a good old erotic romance any day but no I cannot take a book where the main love story is whether these almost definitely legal brother and sister (though perhaps not blood related) should give into baser urges. Hold on one sec while I puke.

The plot of See How She Dies was okay, in the sense that it was able to keep me reading to find out who was the one who kidnapped London and who killed Kat. The story ended well, though the it lacked suspense and was quite predictable.

The romance was just disgusting. The teenage Zach sleeping with his stepmother already was gross enough. He even went on with Adria, even though they both knew that there was a chance they could be half-siblings. I just couldn't keep rolling my eyes at the both of

I give Lisa Jackson props for not only revisiting her first romantic susepense( originally titled as "Treasures") but revising it. Most authors once they hit a bestselling streak tend to re-release their first novels without fixing the rookie mistakes. The suspense was top notch and I kept turning pages to see who was the killer because there was no shortage of good suspects.

The STUMBLING BLOCK in the storyline for me was that Adria and Zach spent way too much time fantasizing about getting in

See how she dies By Lisa Jackson. This story is Suspense Fiction and Romance. This book is about a twisted, jealous, mmurdering, spoiled, and rich family,. The story kept me wondering who the killer was? And why did the killer kill two people? As I was finishing the book I figured it out, all do to greed and jealousy.



The book takes place in Oregon, in 1993. Adria Nash, possibly kidnapped years ago, investigates her birthright as wealthy London Danvers in Portland. Caught between feuding families

Mit all ihren höhen und Tiefen war es für mich aufjedenfall ein angenehmes Buch.

-Achtung Spoiler vorhanden-

Die Handlung, der Beginn, Fortlauf hat mir sehr gefallen. Es bestand immer eine gewisse misteröse erzaehlweise, wobei ich zum einen Teil richtig und zum einen Teil falsch geraten habe.
Normalerweise bin ich kein großer fan von Romantik, doch bestimmte Stellen haben mir sehr gefallen. Bis zum Ende hab ich stark gehofft das Zach doch der Sohn von Polidori sein könnte doch dann hat es sich ja e

I haven't read much by this author, and I've had this book for awhile so I decided to give it a try. I did like the suspense and parts of the romance freaked me out a bit but the mystery was really interesting and kept me reading. It was also a really quick read and only took me a few days to get through.

One annoying thing, the book was written in different parts, and the parts alternated between past and present. That just bothered me. I didn't like having to switch back and forth but I underst

I was recommended this book because I love to read suspense books, with a touch of romance.

This book was definitely more romance than suspense. And the "who's the bad guy?" question is predictable. As a suspense book I would give it only 2 stars. But I do enjoy romance novels every once and a while, and it was ok as a romance novel.

This is Lisa Jacksons first romance suspense book, revised, (as it says on the back of the cover) I won't dismiss this author. I shall look for more recent copies of

Esta novela me ha resultado una lectura adictiva. Un comienzo de novela muy jugoso, muy llamativo (alternando situaciones actuales con hechos sucedidos en el pasado).
Unos hechos que hasta la última página no serán totalmente esclarecidos. Una narración rica en matices de los distintos protagonistas, que nos lleva a más de una sorpresa.
Y un amor ardiente, arrebatador, intenso............. y complicado, muy complicado.
Realmente me encanta haber conocido a esta escritora.

I don't have to like characters to like a book, so the incest possibility did not affect the rating. I did not figure out who did it, so the plot was very intriguing. The strength of one of the older female characters did not ring true though(no name, on purpose). I guess the DNA or lack of it was based on the 1994 plot rather than when it was re-written in 2004 because this didn't ring true either.

Not great, in my opinion. The "bad guy" was too predictable. I had that figured out really early on in the book. The love story was a little much for me. Granted, everything worked out in the end but throughout the entire book, I was thinking Ew! I have only read a few of her books. Thankfully I read the others before I read this one. Otherwise, I would have given up on Lisa Jackson and would have never read the others, which are really good.

En resumen, un libro con sustancia que contiene un romance muy peligroso, buenos diálogos, intriga, suspense a más no poder, asesinatos, tramas retorcidas, y un final bien llevado que me agradaron bastante y que más no se puede pedir.

Remake of an old romance into a new romantic thriller. Adria was trying to find out if she was the kidnapped daughter of a very rich family. Nobody else wanted her to be the lost little girl of the 2nd wife now that dad was dead and had left half his fortune to her if she were ever found. The other siblings would only get it if proof of her death was found.

London Danvers was kidnapped from a wealthy family as a child. During the past 20 yrs many women have shown up claiming to be the long-lost London but Adria Nash who shows up claiming to be the heiress is different. She tries to prove her identity to the family and apparently someone believes that she is London because they are trying to kill her.
Jocelyn Montalvo Cullum
This was a good read... in typical Lisa Jackson fashion. I have to admit though, that even with the remote possibility of the 2 main characters not being related it was still hard to get over the whole "I'm so attracted to you, I want you" thing with them. I mean, geez, they thought they might be brother and sister... eeww...

Not only was the pace way too slow, the plot lines were very predictable. I kept expecting some twists and turns but they never materialized. Not up to the standard I've come to expect from Lisa Jackson.

Rangiert ganz hoch in der Liste der beschissensten Bücher, die ich je gelesen habe. Dumme Geschichte, ekelhaft unsympathische und flache Charaktere, die an nichts anderes denken als ans Vögeln, miserabler Schreibstil und noch dazu aberdutzende Tippfehler. Wieso wird sowas nur veröffentlicht?

This is the worse book by this author I have read, and I have read lots of them. For whatever reason, this book is extra long and drags on and on. It could have been cut in half and still told the reader the same thing. I only gave it 2stars because I really like this author.
