This is a great read. ...
This is a great read. There are twists and surprises. I found myself on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen next. The main character appears insane in the beginning and then through out the rest of the book I found myself thinking she is sane no wait she is insane. Who can she trust, other characters appear on her side but are they. You have to read it all the way through to find out.

This story dragged on ...
This story dragged on and on without much suspense, thrill or romance. I couldn't wait to get off the island and never hear the word "gaslighting" again, which was completely overused. The climax, if you could call it that, in this story didn't come until the last 100 pages. Jackson never really made any of the characters likable or believable. Felt like she didn't really put much effort into developing them at all. Might have helped if she had fewer characters, some served absolutely no purpose whatsoever. I'd read another Lisa Jackson novel which I enjoyed and vowed to read more but I don't know after this.

Ava Church awakens fro...

Ava Church awakens from a drug induced sleep to see her lost child standing on the end of a pier. She runs to him only to find that him gone - a figment of her drugs and her broken mind. Ava decides she must fight to regain her sanity and hopefully find her son. No easy task as Ava is the majority owner of an island mansion populated by hostile, and more than a little quirky, family and friends. As Ava's mind clears a series of murders shake the small town and put Ava under suspicion. Author Lisa Jackson does well with this gothic story, keeping the suspense going until the final pages. The ending was a bit too much and yet probably too little to prove Ava's innocence or guilt.

Noah went missing at a...

Noah went missing at age 2 and his mother Ava has been through a harrowing 2 years of mental health issues and hospitalization. Thought to be paranoid and suicidal and unwilling to accept the loss of her son, her family has come to expect her strange behaviors. Suddenly she becomes stranger, as more events occur around her, including the murders of people she has ties to, and her increasing recovery of her lost memories. The author has woven a tale with so many twists and turns that you can't skip a paragraph without losing track of the story, so pay attention. Not your average "who doneit" this book has something for everyone. Murder, mayhem, amnesia, missings, conspiracy, and lots of action. I enjoyed the read, and recommend it.

I have read Lisa Jacks...

I have read Lisa Jackson's books for a number of years now and have enjoyed every one that I have read. I had the opportunity to listen to her speak at Thrillerfest in July of this year and it was all I could do to not buy her new book You Don't Want to Know. Advance copies of the book due to be published on August 7, 2012 were available in the conference's book store. But I knew I was supposed to receive an Early Reader copy from those same publishers. It was a good thing I didn't buy it because when I got to the airport to fly home my suitcase was 5 pounds overweight and I had to remove books from my bag and carry them. My copy of the book You Don't Want to Know arrived shortly I returned home. I must say that it was worth the wait. Ava Garrison is crazy or so everyone says. Losing a child can do that to a person. So can living with all your crazy relatives, but Ava is convinced her son Noah is alive. There doesn't seem to be much she can do about her crazy relatives, but she is determined to do everything she can to find Noah including seeing a hypnotist. People around her begin to die, her therapist, her hypnotist. Her husband is trying to commit her again. The only person in the household she can trust is a stranger, Austin Dern, who was hired by Ava's husband. The book reminds me of the days when I read the romantic suspense novels of Victoria Holt and Phyllis Whitney. The fast paced story takes the reader on a path of many twists and turns and even though I guessed who the bad guys were there were still several surprises that I hadn't figured out. If you have never read anything by Lisa Jackson before, definitely start here with You Don't Want to Know. But don't stop there because all of her books are good. My favorite ones are in her Rick Bentz/Reuben Montoya novels.

I enjoyed this book, b...

I enjoyed this book, but found it slightly less interesting than many of Ms. Jackson's other novels. I had a hard time getting interested in the main character this time. For some reason, that I have yet to figure out, Ava just didn't spark my interest. The twists and turns were new and sometimes surprising. I think maybe I had trouble getting into this story because it was so different from most of her other novels. I would still recommend the book, as it was good. But, I didn't feel it was up to par with Deep Freeze or Whispers, or some of her other earlier books.
