The Houseful Reads: Touch & Go


Touch & Go by Lisa Gardner 

I will be the first to admit that I was glad to be back on fiction with the Blog Her book club since the last couple of books, I’ve had to reflect on myself, and well, yeah. LOL!

Touch & Go book starts off with showing us how sometimes the perfect family isn’t all that perfect.  You’re automatically swept into a story of secrets and trying to figure out why anyone would want to kidnap a family of three and hold them in an abandoned prison, built by the father’s firm.

With the secondary story taunting you of the investigator assigned to the case also causing a roller coaster of emotions, this book is sure to hold you captive until the very, exhilarating, if I may add, end.

I like the character development here, and the fact that I didn’t see every twist and turn coming. Books that are predictable are not always great fun to read, and I’m happy that I wasn’t able to see everything coming.

As a fan of crime fiction, I can appreciate when an author knows what they are doing and Lisa Gardner, in fact, knows what she is doing.

Learning about the Denbe family is almost a novel within a novel. Justin, Libby and Ashlyn all have secrets of their own, and they must confront them while kidnapped in order to try to make sense of it all.

I recommend this book for a weekend read, and assure you, that you will indeed feel as if you just worked the case with Tessa Leone, who is going through her own issues with dealing with things that happen among family.

You can come and join the discussion over at the BlogHer Book Club, and chime in with any things that you have found interesting, or your thoughts on the book in general!
