My 4 star review for Finding Fisher by Dakota Madison
Deceit: the action or practice of deceiving someone by concealing or misrepresenting the truth
What would you do if you found out that the one person you were planning on spending the rest of your life with ends up being someone you never really knew at all?
Chloe Woodford’s fiancé, Franklin Smith was her perfect match in every way. He was top of his class at Stanford and recently got accepted into Harvard Law. While on spring break, Franklin ma

One of my favourite authors I love is Dakota Madison , all her books are amazing and I find myself as soon as I open the first page engrossed in them and I cannot put them down. The other thing I quite like is that she crossovers her series with the books she has written under different pen-names ( Savannah Young). In Finding Fisher, we meet Chloe who is engaged to her boyfriend Franklin whom she met while they were both studying at Stanford. After a week's holiday, Franklin hasn't arrived back ...more

I was asked to read this, by the author in exchange for a review, and I thank Ms Madison for that.

Franklin went home for Spring Break, and never came back. When Chloe goes in search of answers, she finds Franklin was leading a double life. He didn't tell the truth for just about anything, especially that of being an only child. For Franklin was a twin, an identical twin. He and Fisher are nothing alike, and Chole struggles against the chemistry she feels for Fisher that she never felt for Frankl

Dakota Madison once again takes what appears to be a straight forward love story and gives it a twist that keeps you thoroughly engaged and turning the pages.

I really enjoyed watching Chloe find herself as she begins to piece together the truth about her now deceased fiancé. As she learns more and more about the life Franklin left behind, she also uncovers strengths in herself as she begins to realize that her pursuit of the “perfect life” that she has mapped out may not be where she finds happi

I loved the idea of this story. What if the man you loved, who was your fiance- wasn’t who you thought he was at all? On paper, all the elements for an amazing story where there- Lies, betrayal, tragedy and a unique love story that takes centre stage in Dakota Madison’s book. Unfortunately something went AWOL in the execution of the story. It lacked a certain warmth to it, I never really felt a connection to Chloe the heroine of the piece. She is the quintessential good little rich girl, perfec

What an awesome story! I was gifted this book for an honest review.
I wanted to read this story because of the fact it was dedicated to a young man who's life was taken to soon. It pulled me in on that fact alone. I thought, how could an author write a book and dedicate to someone else in that way!
Dakota Madison did just that!! This book makes you feel all the way through it. It's heartbreaking, gut wrenching and even funny at times! I loved it!

First I want to say what the author is doing for the memory of the model on the cover Joshua Scott is wonderful. Thank you for that thoughtfulness and kindness to his family, his memory and such a good cause.

This book was a step away from the others that take place in Old Town for her. Franklin was trying to be something he wasn’t and lied so much who really knew him is my question. And Jackson that poor little guy got the short staff of the lottery pool

Franklin went home on spring break and never returned so Chloe decided to travel to his home to find out what has happened.

I wasn't sure if I would enjoy a story where the main character falls in love with her dead fiancé's twin brother. It felt a bit... indecent or improper. But as soon as I started reading Finding Fisher, I was captivated by Fisher and Chloe. Their story was entertaining, sweet and highly enticing.

As a reader, you almost know as much about Franklin as Chloe does. I think it is why the plot's premise works so well. You're not invested in her past love - in fact you feel betrayed and hurt for Chloe

This book was given to me for my honest review

Belief the meaning is confidence in truth or existence. As we come into this world of the unknown we are taught in the belief of truth. That with all people we are created equal even in fault. What happens when we put our total belief in one person and that person totally shatters our beliefs? Do we continue as we are taught and put our belief in the next or do we just forge upon our lives in existence?

Love the title, love the simplicity of the cover and I actually loved the story. It’s a quick read that’s easy to navigate with some good writing and has a great little plot even though it isn’t all that original. It’s in the execution. I’m surprised I liked this so much because if I’m being truthful I really didn’t warm to the female lead, Chloe. But then again we are more often than not a product of our up-bringing and this story shows that all too clearly

It took me awhile to write this review. I was so torn on the story line and I kept going back and forth with my feelings. This story was so wrong that it was so right! At first I hated Chloe , I thought she was stuck up and you could tell she breathed money. She grew on me and I loved seeing her grow. I loved Fisher, hands down. He was everything. As much as I loved them together I couldn’t shake the thought of the other brother. You know the one she was engaged t

I was given an ARC of this book by the author for a honest review.

This was such a sweet and sad story. Sad cause Chloe was dealing with the tragic death of her fiance and the many secrets that he was hiding from her and everyone back at Stanford college. The sweet is when Chloe met the twin brother Fisher that she never know Franklin had. Fisher was such a sweet and funny person. I just loved the back and forth comments and jokes that Chloe and Fisher had. The setting of the town in New Jersey

Finding Fisher was a sweet, if not tragic story.

Chloe’s world has just shattered with the death of her fiancé, but what she soon finds out is that he was living a whole other life.

Going to Old Town, New Jersey, Chloe learns that her whole relationship has been a lie. She doesn’t know how to deal with it, until Fisher helps her.

I liked Finding Fisher, again I wish I knew what the male lead was thinking, but it came together wonderfully. There isn’t a lot I can say with out truly giving the book a

I started reading Dakota Madison when I reviewed her Fire on Ice series. She is still enjoyable. Her writing is clear and precise. I could see every person and place she described perfectly.
I would love to visit Old Town and meet all these people. I want to go to the deli and get a sandwich.
This is a sweet story to read, it made me cry a few times. I recommend you grab the tissues buy the book and get a glass of wine then settle in and read.

I stumbled on this book by chance - I'm so glad I did. I loved this story. Chloe was the California Princess, the child of wealth, the perfect girl. Franklin was Chloe's fiance he traveled home to NJ over spring break and never came back. This is not Franklin's story - it's the story of Chloe finding out her entire relationship was a lie. It's the story of finding the truth not only about her life with Franklin but the truth about herself. It's the story of true love but not with the obvious - C ...more

Great Book, and goes by very quick as you don't want to put the book down. Chloe goes on a journey to find love again after a huge disaster with her fiancé, when he doesn't return after his trip, so she goes to find answers and what she finds is crazy, but in the midst she falls for another man, and learns about her self along the way. This is a must read. Dakota did a great job writing the book, with the awesome characters, and the plot of the story.

I really enjoyed this book.
It's a heart-warming story of tragedy and love.
I took an instant dis-liking to Chloe, but as the story unfolded I grew to really like her.
I loved Fisher, he was sweet and sexy.
There were a few OMG moments that kept me on the edge of my seat.
Overall a really good read.

- This was a quick and easy read but it kept me interested until the end.

-One of the greatest love stories since the Notebook

-Fisher and Chloe need each other more than the realized. They push each other of the their comfort zones.

Although this was a short book, there was a lot of story packed in. After being deceived, Chloe finds what true love really means. I read it in one sitting and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Finding Fisher is an quick read and I would recommend it.
