After Anna Reviews
Norma and I were lost in the dense lush coulee with Kaceey reading After Anna and even though we ended up in the same coulee we were on different sides of the coulee on how much we enjoyed this one.
After Anna is an entertaining, fast-paced and suspenseful domestic thriller that had us running in circles in the coulee trying to figure out who was manipulating who in this story. Norma at times struggling to escape the circle and Kaceey and I just going with the flow until that great twist tossed ...more

I’ve read quite a few of Lisa Scottoline’s novels over the years and have always enjoyed them. However, I have to say that I enjoy her stand-alone novels the most. I especially enjoyed her last novel “One Perfect Lie”. And after reading the description for this new domestic thriller, I was really excited to get reading.

Parts of this mystery/thriller are very well done. The story is told both Before Anna and After Anna. Anna is Maggie’s daughter who she lost custody of after battling postpartum psychosis, a more serious illness than postpartum depression. That was seventeen years ago, when Anna was just six months old. After Anna’s father dies in a plane crash, she seeks out Maggie, who is thrilled to take Anna from the boarding school she hates and have her move in with Maggie, her husband of two years, Noah, ...more

Another suspense- filled thriller, by Lisa Scottoline, that I thoroughly enjoyed.
The story begins as an engaging family drama, leading to the challenges of parenting a teenager, followed by twists involving lies and manipulation.
I was disappointed with the epilogue as I found it to be implausible.
However, don't let this deter you from picking up or listening to this novel as it is certainly worth the read.
