There has been a slight change in the books I’m choosing to read over the last year or two. I used to stay away from the mystery/thriller genre simply because I am a wimp. Most of my reading happens before bed and more likely than not, the stories from the books I read usually find their way into my dreams.
While I still consider myself to be a wimp, I also have found myself enjoying several “thrillers” over the last year. Touch and Go by Lisa Gardner worked itself into my “must-read” thriller category and it did not disappoint. If you do consider yourself a wimp of are easily frightened, I suggest reading this one when someone else is home with you and not reading it right before bed. It will have you triple checking all the locks in your house, looking under beds, and possibly sleeping with some kind of weapon by your bed.
The novel is a fast-paced page turner that you just want to finish. Although there are references to previous characters from her other novels, you do not have to read those first to be fully engaged in this action packed mystery.
I also like to think of myself as quite the detective when it comes to mystery novels, tv shows, movies, etc, but this book had me guessing until the end. Check it out. I really think you will enjoy it.
