When her past comes back to haunt her, a Baltimore prosecutor must turn to an FBI agent in order to save her kidnapped son in this heart-stopping novel from New York Times bestselling author Karen Rose. Baltimore prosecutor Daphne Montgomery pulled herself out of a damaged past to build a solid life for herself and her son.
You know it's horrific, you see the impact that it's horrific, but she does't provide the extremely horrific details that you really don't want to read. I also appreciate that she neatly pulls all the pieces of the story line together and does not leave you hanging. You aren't left wondering about a detail because she answers the questions. I didn't give this 5 stars because I honestly didn't think the ending climatic scene would have played that way and it felt contrived.
A little disappointed there, but the everything else was really good. Moments after a controversial verdict is delivered by jurors, District Attorney Daphne Montgomery's world implodes. She's attacked in the courtroom, nearly killed while giving a press conference, and then receives the devastating news that her son, Ford, is missing along with his girlfriend.
Threats made imply the family of the now convicted murderer is involved, but could there be a deeper, darker connection? Have shades of the past returned to haunt Daphne once again? Readers can count on Rose to deliver a chilling, complex, twisted story every single time as she always challenges us to step up to the plate and figure it out.
I think Did You Miss Me? With a multitude of characters with opportunity and motive, I found myself hard pressed to figure out the mystery of "who" even though a name and the "why" is revealed through the killer's thoughts and actions early on. The inter-connections, both known and unknown to readers, throughout the story made my head spin in an effort to keep them all straight.
It's a good idea to slow down and take this one in slowly as every single detail will prove to be important. While Joseph and Daphne are the stars of this book, other characters step up to lend their support and expertise - setting the stage for some highly anticipated future couples. An absolutely chilling, page-burning Must Read in this awesome series! Reviewed at Cross My Heart Reviews View all 7 comments.
I have read nearly all of Karen's books and rarely read one that I don't love. When her newest book landed on my doorstep a few days ahead of publication thanks to the Publishers I was excited as I ripped open the package. However, my excitement was replaced with shock as even by Karen Rose standards this book was a humdinger at pages.
With the synopsis read in seconds I poured myself a brew and immediately got stuck in. For this that maybe haven't read any Karen Rose books this book, along I have read nearly all of Karen's books and rarely read one that I don't love. For this that maybe haven't read any Karen Rose books this book, along with any other can be picked up and read in any order as a stand alone book. For those that have previously read Karen's books, you will see familiar faces from previous books.
What I loved about starting this book was not only being introduced to Daphne and Joseph, but seeing what other characters were up to in their lives. Daphne's son Ford Elkhart is actually the main focus of this book and he is kidnapped and only recalls what happened when he wakes up on a cold dark floor and realises he is tied up and being held. The book takes an immediate dive into the kidnapping and we see many chapters start to form threads. I was totally and utterly engrossed and found myself being drawn back to the book every time I attempted to put it down.
There are numerous threads and people to keep track of and at the halfway mark I had to take a breather as I realised I needed to get it all straight in my head?!?
I had block read at least pages and felt like I had overdosed on crime! Luckily a good nights' sleep sorted that out and the next day I resumed reading the rollercoaster ride of a book! The characters Daphne and Joseph each have their own demons and skeletons and as the story progresses we see the layers of their pasts slowly peeled back.
I liked the suspense you are kept in, even though I am the most impatient person. As usual the actual crime scenes are written vividly leaving a somewhat sour taste in my mouth at times, but by no means put me off!
Joseph and Daphne are both characters I really liked but the two that really pulled at me were Clay and Stevie. They were only in the book for small periods of time but I SO want to find out what happens there I just know I'm going to have to wait on that front!
The plot itself had plenty of twists and turns and kept me guessing until the very end of the book. The one thing that stood out this time round was the sex! Yep, that's right people I did say sex! Karen Rose is a great crime writer, but her genre if people care to check is romantic suspense.
It irritates me when people grumble about this in her books because it's what she does, and believe me when I say it's what she does best. Karen Rose surprised me this time round and at times I wondered if I had inadvertently picked up a Jackie Collins not a bad thing in my book!
All in all, this book, although long even by her standards, was an absolute cracker. Karen Rose is first class at these sorts of books and this one didn't disappoint.
As usual, you are in for a bumpy ride which will have you reading from morning until night. Highly recommended. View all 5 comments. It kept my interest due to curiosity, but I did not enjoy this book. It needed better characters.
This is a mystery suspense thriller with a little romance. We also watch the good guys investigate and try to catch the bad guys. I was not excited. There are some complicated character interactions. The author hides things from readers and brings them out later. Some of the logic was hard to It kept my interest due to curiosity, but I did not enjoy this book. Some of the logic was hard to accept. As a result many more were killed. The author went to great lengths to give excuses as to why Daphne would not tell anyone.
Even after Daphne believed the bad guy was dead, she still did not tell anyone. I was angry and frustrated that Daphne never told. I felt like the author worked really hard to come up with excuses to justify her silence.
She came off weak by not telling. The audiobook narrator made it worse.
Her accent for Daphne was a southern twang that sounded less intelligent. I enjoy some southern accents but not this one. Sensitive Reader Issues: There is harm to children. Teenage girls are kidnapped and tortured. Torture details are not shown, but screams are described. It hurt the book. See Spoiler below. When they finally learn where the bad guy lives, a SWAT team or group of cops should go there, surround the place and get the guy. But what happens? Daphne and her FBI guy go there alone and enter the home alone and find things.
Of course Daphne expresses horror at the things the bad guy did - again repetitive. The FBI guy tells her to wear a kevlar vest, but a sniper could shoot her in the head.
The home also could have been booby-trapped. Later other cops arrive. The cops know that the bad guy watches crime scenes from nearby. So why do they let Daphne and her son sit in a car alone nearby? Of course the bad guy goes to the car dressed as a state trooper and bad things happen.
B was drugged maybe 30 minutes earlier and is starting to wake up. He should yell at the nearby cops to go after the bad guy. He grabs an axe and runs into the woods to get the bad guy.
The bad guy owns a rifle. He might have it. But no, B and the bad guy wrestle with the axe. Clay learns that C is in a particular house. Clay decides to go there alone to get C. A group of cops should have gone, not one lone person.
I was not happy with Marguerite Gavin as narrator. I also did not like her southern accent for Daphne. Narrative mode: Unabridged audiobook length: Swearing language: Sexual language: Number of sex scenes: Book copyright: Dec 18, Bill rated it did not like it. My brain was about to explode keeping track of who was related to who, and it seemed that the only point of this was to pay tribute to other characters in the previous 13 books of the series.
Well, that's all well and good for those who care. I don't, and I guess I can blame myself for jumping into her 14th book without having read her before. I won't read her again. This book reads like a grade 8 effort and breaks most of the rules Stephen King set out in his On Writing book. Namely, the overuse of adverbs. I'm not kidding here: Or he said something to that effect.
Anyway, it was really annoying and I had to move on before I came to the word "exclaimed" and broke something. One fun thing I did with my Kindle is search for the occurrence of the word "frowned". View 1 comment. I really enjoy reading one of Karen Rose's Romantic Suspense installments from time to time.
I am not reading them in order - so I have not been familiar with all the characters of this book, but I didn't have a problem to connect to them. I enjoyed the interaction between the characters and the development of relationships between some of them.
I also liked the plot itself, but I had the feeling that some plot elements could have been more elaborated - some things felt a little short 3.
I also liked the plot itself, but I had the feeling that some plot elements could have been more elaborated - some things felt a little short and I would have loved to know more about reasons and motives behind them. This might not be one of the best Karen Rose books, but I felt well entertained and I am looking forward to meet some of these characters in other books of the series.
Did You Miss Me?
Mar 25, Anita rated it really liked it Shelves: As I have come to expect, Did You Miss Me is a fascinating plot that starts with revenge, ends with revenge and takes all kinds of wonderful detours along the way. Karen Rose is one of the best authors currently writing romantic-suspense, with the emphasis on suspense.
This book takes you in and makes you experience the horror of child abduction and sets you up for a bone chilling ending. Although some elements of the plot have appeared in prior books, there is always a special twist that makes As I have come to expect, Did You Miss Me is a fascinating plot that starts with revenge, ends with revenge and takes all kinds of wonderful detours along the way.
Although some elements of the plot have appeared in prior books, there is always a special twist that makes the old, new again. Ford Elkhart is kidnapped in a revenge plot against his mother, SA Daphne Montgomery who is on the verge of winning her first really big case. Then all hell loose in the courtroom after the verdict, and the shooting starts on the courthouse steps. The plot starts with a Bang! Ford is just a pawn to use against Daphne in an elaborate plot of revenge and Daphne isn't the only target.
Joseph met Daphne nine months ago and fell hard. Really hard. So hard he requested a transfer to so he could be located in Baltimore, near her.
But, he was under the very mistaken impression that she was involved with someone else and never made his move.
Now is definitely not the best time, but, well, sometimes what is, is. There is real respect and trust that have built over the nine months for both of them.
Now there is a burning lust to throw on top of everything else. First, and foremost, they have to find Ford and figure out why Daphne is a target. This one was just ok for me. It was an ok read, I guess, but just not one of my favorites. Aug 05, Melinda Elizabeth rated it it was ok.
Romantic suspense? Definitely not my cup of tea. And why are writers pushing so many characters into books these days?
This book had so many intertwining characters who were related to one another, or had known teacher for ages, that I really lost the plot threads about who was who and why they were important.
If this is part of a series, great, but you shouldn't isolate your first time readers by making the relationships so complex.
And it really wasn't warranted at all since half of them didn't even play any important role in the story. So, what happens is a prosecutor wins a case against a boss family. They seek revenge against her and steal her son. The prosecutor herself was abducted as a small child and this brings back terrible memories of her time with another killer.
The romantic suspense part is probably the worst part - I really don't understand how this chick is going at it with the men in the book when her only son is missing. Vanishing Girls. Lisa Regan.
