Dark, intense and downright chilling, Find Her had me questioning what kind of survivor I might be after being held captive for 472 days in a body-sized pine box. I know, a horrifying thought, right? Would I give up on life and ultimately let fear rule my world or be a woman hell-bent on revenge? Like Flora, would I struggle to recognize the eyes staring back at me in the mirror?
Even though this is the eighth book in the Detective D.D. Warren series, it was ...more
Flora Dane didn’t originally go looking for trouble. The first time, it found her. In the worst way imaginable. For 472 days to be exact. Once she got out, she started looking for it, because she’s a survivor. Now, her main objective is tracking down men who want nothing more than to victimize women while she turns the tables on them.
Detective D.D. Warren doesn’t understand Flora Dane, nor does she really like her, if D.D. is being honest. How could she? Flor ...more

My title for this review says it all. I was fortunate to have talked my way into the good graces of the publisher and they gave me the ok to read this. It was understandable for their concern.... after all I read mostly romance.
However, I am someone who likes all types of experiences and thrillers, psychological dramas, mysteries were my bread and butter for many years. I could deal with the blood, guts and gore with the best of them... so after my persuading t ...more

Although FIND HER didn't actually "wow" me it still gets a 5* rating from me because I wasn't able to guess the outcome on this one and it was a strong, solid read. But, not guessing the outcome isn't uncommon for me as Lisa Gardner pulls you into the storyline and I just want to be in the moment with D. D. Warren's case as it unfolds and don't find myself ...more
On the cover Sharon Bolton is quoted as saying that Lisa Gardner is "an absolute master of the psychological suspense novel." She certainly is!
Flora Dane was abducted and stored in a coffin-shaped box for 472 days. That's 15 months. The deterioration, destruction, and disappearance of her "self" was hard to read about. On the occasions when she eventually was able to spend time out of the box, it grew harder to empathize with her. Now, 5 years after her rescue, the new Flora, Flora 2.0 as she calls herself, is extremely hard to understand or like.
D.D. is on restricted duty due to a work related injury but that doesn't keep her behind a desk for long.

Find Her by Lisa Gardner is both bizarre and brilliant. Readers of Ms. Gardner’s D.D. Warren series already know what a fine writer she is. Detective D.D. Warren – that’s D for Determined and D for Driven – is supposed to be on desk duty due to injuries sustained while on a previous investigation, but try as they might, they can’t keep D.D. down. As her fellow officers remind her, she is allowed to delegate responsibilities, and she does try, but she just can’t help herself. D.D. is still trying to be ...more
