Catch Me by Lisa Gardner
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book is very hard to put down and it's definitely a detective mystery worth reading!
I haven't really ventured into any of Lisa Gardner's books but I'm glad I took a chance on this on. The characters are likable, the story travels along at a great pace and there is definitely a mystery to be solved here. The case is pretty simple and straight forward. A woman believes that on January 21st she will be the next to die in her long line of friends. She's spent the past year fighting, training and getting prepared to face her attacker. The only problem is, someone is killing pedophiles and this someone looks a lot like Charlie.
Charlie is written very well. She's definitely the textbook case of a stressed person that believes they are going to die soon. Charlie also has a very checkered past with her mother that she's trying to work through. Not to mention, she's trying to deal with all of the memories of her past life that she's worked so hard to hide from herself.
Charlie is a smart character though and arrives at conclusions pretty quickly. She sort of beats the detectives. However, D.D Warren is a pretty smart woman herself and realizes that things are not always what they seem.
My only complaint is the ending of this book was a bit cheesy. Things were wrapped up very nicely, the entire story is finally revealed and we check in with Charlie and D.D before the ending. D.D's ending while sweet was a bit cheesy but still made for an enjoyable read.
