    1. 4.5 StarsIt's been several years since I read this book and didn't remember all the details, but the story was sooo good! Jason Jones comes home to find his twenty-three year-old wife missing, while their four year old daughter is tucked away in bed, sleeping. As the search begins we discover that Jason and Sandra aren't the picture perfect couple/family that they appear to be, but the secrets aren't as straightforward as you'd think. As the hours tick by and the suspect list grows, with Jason's [...]

    2. Seriously, this book averages almost 4 stars? Maybe folks just haven't read as many really good mysteries as I have or else I really missed something in this book.First, okay I get ite young blonde wife is beautiful. How many times did the author have to bang that over my head? Lest we brunettes forget--yes, yes, the blonde woman is beautiful. Okay I get it. But GMAFB re: her being lonely. Girl made her bed--married rich and he's gone a lot. Suck it up, buttercup. Also, I am a teacher and I foun [...]

    3. A husband arrives home late one night to discover that his wife is missing and their four-year-old daughter tucked safely in her bed. He doesn’t call the police for several hours, a failing which immediately raises red flags for Sergeant D.D. Warren. As Warren and Detective Brian Miller go through the house, D.D. feels that something is off. Something is too perfect. In Lisa Gardner’s third book of her D.D. Warren series, The Neighbor, Gardner takes us through a scenario that definitely is n [...]

    4. The third book in the Detective D.D. Warren series and the first where D.D. comes out from Bobby Dodge's shadow and plays a prominent role in the series that bears her name. Finally!D.D. receives a call from Detective Brian Miller on a crime that is sure to become a media frenzy. Jason Jones comes home from work to find that his wife, Sandra, is missing leaving behind their 4 year old daughter, Clarissa ("Ree"). Sandra is young, blonde, and beautiful. Jason is compared to "McDreamy" from "Grey's [...]

    5. My first Lisa Gardner novel, which I was excited to read due to hearing good things from friends. Whilst I enjoyed this one, I wasn't bowled over. This author seems very on top of her research, which was evident in her detail of the horrible world of childhood sexual abuse, I left the story feeling like I knew a lot about the murky area of rehabilitation and parole, and how these offenders are expected to enter programs, and the vigourous expectations of the attendees. This was interesting readi [...]

    6. Wow what a great read and another classic from Lisa Gardner Detective D.D. Warren series. The story of a seemingly perfect family, the loving couple Sandra and Jason Jones and their four year old daughter Clarissa. Everything seemed fine with both parents working and with plenty of money life was good till one night Jason comes home from work to find his wife is gone.Once D.D. Warren and her partner Brian Miller get the call for the case it seem's obvious Jason has killed his wife as he seems mo [...]

    7. First read: August 2010Re-read: January 2018Rating: 5/5 stars, best of 2018The plot: an attractive young mother vanishes from her home one night while her husband is at work, leaving her young daughter tucked up in bed and no signs of foul play aside from a smashed bedroom lamp. Sergeant DD Warren is called in to investigate and discovers there is something sinister going on in this outwardly perfect little family.The Neighbour was my first introduction to this series almost eight years ago when [...]

    8. Reading this book was like having a 300+ page long conversation with an annoying friend who hints at something she knows that you don't know and is just DYING for you to ask, but you don't. So many overt allusions to "what happened on the vacation" blah blah blah that I really stopped caring to find out. If not for that little percentage bar on the bottom of my kindle mocking my struggle to finish this book, I would have given in to my disinterest and stopped about 1/4 of the way through.

    9. While the suspense and drama of this book were riveting, I thought the explanations offered in the end were far-fetched (bordering on the ridiculous). I also felt you had to have read her preceeding novel to fully understand Jason's character.Spoiler alert here** Did anyone else find the reason behind Sandra's disappearance to be unbelievably far-fetched? I mean, I just didn't buy that this woman would leave her daughter ALONE in the house in order to stage her own disappearance? If she was such [...]

    10. This is my third Lisa Gardner book in a row. And it is also the third straight book that includes plenty of suspense mixed with many unlikely events that strain credibility. I have been captivated evidently by this series that undoubtedly began its life in startling covers on grocery store book racks. This book is part of the Detective D. D. Warren Series, a series notable for the fact that Detective Warren plays almost no role in the first two books and has a relatively minor role in this third [...]

    11. Só o título deste livro é chamativo. A capa ajuda a pegarmos nele. A sinopse. . . faz com que o tragamos connosco para casa. Uma mulher jovem (SANDY), professora básica com uma filha pequenina de 4 anos desaparece, sendo que sabemos que as últimas palavras são: "Por favor não faças isto. Por favor! Eu não direi a ninguém. Podes acreditar em mim. Nunca direi. Amo-te. Ainda te amo. . ."Temos como suspeitos ao início: o marido e um vizinho jovem com cadastro que vive ao fundo da rua. . . [...]

    12. Wow! Detective DD Warren has her hands full with this one! Sandra, her cute little 4 yo daughter Ree and husband Jason, live a seemingly perfect life together in a cosy little bungalow. Jason is a reporter for the local paper, while Sandra is a school teacher. Between them they look after Ree, with no other family around at all.Then Sandra vanishes without trace, while Jason is at work one night, and the only person in the house when he arrives home from work at 2am, is little Ree, sound asleep [...]

    13. Acesta e primul roman citit de mine de la Lisa Gardner și cu siguranță nu ultimul. Mi-a plăcut foarte mult. Deși sunt o fană a genului, cred că de la Gone Girl nu a mai reușit un thriller să mă țină în suspans așa. Totul e foarte bine pus la punct. Detalii suficiente, personaje puternic conturate, suspans bine dozat, intrigă extrem de bună și final imprevizibil. Pe toate le are. Micuța Ree e delicioasă, a adus un strop de puritate și pozitivism poveștii. Sandra e un personaj [...]

    14. This strange, awkward little mystery starts off well enough. It's a compelling puzzle, and for a long portion I'm completely invested in finding out what's going to happen and am intrigued by the unusual behavior of several of the characters. But it goes on too long without any answers and after a while I'm wondering if the writer has dug herself too big of a hole that she's not going to be able to get out of elegantly. Sure enough, when the the question we've been waiting to have answered is fi [...]

    15. 3.5 Stars*The story begins with: 'I’ve always wondered what people felt in the final few hours of their lives. Did they know something terrible was about to occur? Sense imminent tragedy, hold their loved ones close? Or is it something that just happens?'Lisa had my attention, and the further I read into the book I found it hard to put down. Both the husband Jason, and the missing wife Sandy had secrets, subtle hints were revealed as to what they might be, which kept me turning the pages, as I [...]

    16. Well since I pretty much devoured this book, couldn't put it down, both read and listened to it whenever I can that pretty much sums up a 5 star for me. This is where the series really took off for me. There were so many different pieces, angles, that I couldn't quite put together. I had ideas, but it all kept me guessing. Then I loved the way it brilliantly all tied to a previous book from Lisa's other series. My mood lately has been trending toward mystery and suspense and this completely fit [...]

    17. Beautiful school teacher Sandra Jones makes supper for her four-year-old daughter, gives her a bath, puts her to bed, and then disappears. Her husband comes home from work to find Sandra gone. Jason claims his wife would never leave their daughter unprotected in the house alone. Jason is not cooperating with the police. He will not let them see the family computer. He will not let them question his daughter. Sgt. D.D. Warren believes Jason killed his wife, but he isn't their only suspect. The ne [...]

    18. Oh my goodness, this book had me guessing till the end. I could not put it down. Fantastic story. This is the third book in the Detective D.D. Warren series. And my first time reading Lisa Gardner. Lately, I've always said that I wouldn't start a book in the middle of the series, always from the beginning but I had to read this. lol Glad I did. It was in the third person and not a lot of point of view from D.D. And I didn't get that much insight into who she was as a cop. Some I did but not much [...]

    19. Lisa Gardner apresenta-nos uma família normal: uma professora atraente e mãe dedicada, um jornalista que trabalha no turno da noite e uma filha de quatro anos com uma grande perceção do mundo dos adultos. E, como todas as famílias normais, esconde segredos entre si e do mundo exterior.D.D. Jackson, a detetive de Boston, é destacada para ajudar esta família quando um dos seus membros desaparece misteriosamente. Longe de ser a personagem principal, a detetive criminal partilha a frente da l [...]

    20. 5/31/2016: Đọc ghiền quá! Lâu lắm rồi mình không được đọc một truyện Tiếng Việt và có tính giải trí như thế này. Thích quá thích quá!6/20/2016: Các tình tiết thực sự cuốn hút, làm người đọc không thể rời trang sách được. Nhưng cách tác giả giới thiệu thêm quá trời nhân vật sau nửa cuốn truyện mình không biết mình cảm thấy thế nào nữa. Xong rồi còn đoạn kết Nếu mình phải chấm t [...]

    21. Do melhor! Adorei! Assim que comecei a ler, não consegui parar mais até chegar ao final. Fiquei completamente apanhada nas narrativas de Sandra e nos pontos de vista do marido, Jason, para saber o que se passou entre os dois e entre Sandra e um desconhecido que fez alguma coisa mas enquanto leitores não sabemos o quê. Mais que o mistério/policial, este livro foi especial por, na minha opinião, ter uma história de amor tão bonita, que me encheu de ternura.

    22. I couldn't put this book down the first page, it grabbed me.Mystery, tension-filled with twists and turns and I was stunned at the end , when all is revealed.wowr even guessed or had a clue who the baddies where!!!!I loved this author's writing style.you get so engrossed in the plot and characters that gets you totally immersed.

    23. Interesting to be reading this book in the season of "Gone Girl". Must be the year for the "wife goes missing, blame the innocent hubby" plot. Interesting plot twists and turns kept me guessing and skillful talent in keeping the suspense ratcheted up. A few less than credible resolutions toward the end but an enjoyable read.

    24. Another brilliantly gripping Lisa Gardner book - only the second I've read, but easily as gripping as the first! I guessed a couple of elements of the outcome, but there were still some big surprises!

    25. 4 1/2 Stars!Sandra Jones puts her daughter, Ree, to bed and goes to her own bed. Then she hears a sound coming from the stairsWhen her husband, Jason, comes home from his night shift job at the newspaper, Sandra is gone.Sgt. Detective D.D. Warren, last seen in Gardner's 2007 novel, "Hide" knows that the spouse is always the prime suspect when the other spouse goes missing or is killed. Now, when she attempts to interview Jason, he is uncooperative, almost nonshalant.Is it the husband who is guil [...]

    26. #3 in her DD Warren Series - I'm still having a problem getting into Lisa Gardner's head/style of writing. This book had me scratching my head just trying to figure out what the heck was going on. Red herrings, the odd mackerel, and I'm sure a trout were all thrown in the mix. And just when I thought I had all the balls lined up, one went in the gutter.Anyways, a good puzzle for sure and now that I've read it, everything makes sense. Very different story line, but quite ingenious. Now I'm just h [...]

    27. I loved to read this book because Lisa Gardner knows how to keep the reader's interest. The suspens is big and each time you want to know the following events, a knew chapter begins with another part of the story. And again, at the end of the said chapter, when you are hooked, she begins another chapter to tell another side of the story. This trick is well known and much used but it works well : the novel is very thrilling and and I couldn't leave it until the end. Add to this, Lisa Gardner's bo [...]

    28. I had a hard time connecting with the characters of this book. It seemed far more outlandish than any of Gardner's other books. Jason Jones is a reporter for a Boston newspaper with a wife and daughter. The wife, Sandra disappears one evening and he is uncooperative, therefore becoming the suspect. There is a sex offender on the street who also is a suspect. You know Jones is hiding something big from everyone, but don't know what until the last pages, but he does love his daughter. All you know [...]

    29. My second Lisa Gardner book and I am completely hooked. I love the flow of revelations throughout the book that pull you deeper and deeper into the plot. I love the multiple suspects that are almost impossible to split. I love the twists at the end, and I adore her writing style. I have found a new favourite author to add to my growing list and I will be reading many more of her books in the year ahead.
