This was an uninspired listen with gratuitous use of the n- word. It didn’t hold my attention and I found myself rewinding a lot to hear things over agin. Stayed with it due to it being a book club selection.

Tedious and frustrating to listen to. Completely unbelievable story, characters and ending. Finished it only because it’s a book club selection for a discussion I’m hosting at my home.

LaShawnda Jones and 77 other people liked Mackey's review of Someone Knows:
Someone Knows by Lisa Scottoline
"I'm not going to leave a full review of this book. I've left my thoughts with the publisher. There are glowing reviews for this elsewhere and you can read those. This is a book about extremely bad, very spoiled rich kids and their egregious parents. " Read more of this review »
Someone Knows by Lisa Scottoline
"Sadly this is a DNF for me at 60%. Lisa Scottoline has written some of my favorite books, in particular "Every Fifteen Minutes" was a psychological thriller that I loved.

"Someone Knows" has so many dysfunctional characters that it's unbelievable and " Read more of this review »

“Solitude is good for a time, but not for all time. Don’t forget to come back and embrace a community. Build one, if you must. Don’t neglect the sharing of yourself. Even those parts that are not so clean have value. In fact, the best lessons you have to offer in life come from your struggles in the darkness and grit of life.”
Lashawnda Jones

“Sometimes getting to the other side seems impossible. You know there’s a way. You can actually see the steps in your mind – but it all seems out of reach. Pause. Relax. Remember to do what you can in the moment you’re in. Before long, you’ll arrive at your destination ready for the next challenge.”
Lashawnda Jones

“We each own our own happiness.
My contentment is no one else’s responsibility.
My joy is mine to protect and nourish.
If we are incapable of reaching inward and embracing that which makes us happy, then perhaps we don’t deserve it. But if we find our joy, we should be diligent to pursue it, cultivate it and share it.”
Lashawnda Jones

“The process of time brings our transformation to fruition. Free yourself to live through the processes God puts you through because at the appointed time He will cause you to bear much fruit - all for purpose of glorifying Him in the world.”
Lashawnda Jones, The Process of Asking For, Receiving and Giving Love & Forgiveness

“When you are brave enough to see me and accept me at my most basic, uninspired, unremarkable self – indeed, embrace my ordinariness - then, and only then, will you develop eyes to see the extraordinary splendor of my heart.”
Lashawnda Jones

“Solitude is good for a time, but not for all time. Don’t forget to come back and embrace a community. Build one, if you must. Don’t neglect the sharing of yourself. Even those parts that are not so clean have value. In fact, the best lessons you have to offer in life come from your struggles in the darkness and grit of life.”
Lashawnda Jones

“Don’t limit yourself by what you’ve achieved. All your past achievements are only stepping stones for the greatness to come.”
Lashawnda Jones

“Women need to learn to accept the incredible blessing that God created us to be. When God created Eve, He termed her a comparable mate, a helper to man. When God took Jesus, He gave us the Holy Spirit as a Helper and Comforter. The lie is: people think a helper is weak. The truth is: without help, what can anyone accomplish?
There is indeed great power in who we are as women. We indeed need to let go of the lies. We also need to embrace the truth.”
