    I am a huge fan of LISA GARDNER and have never missed any of her books.  She is one author that I absolutely cannot wait for her new book release so when I had the opportunity to read this one, needless to say I was a little excited and jumped on it immediately!  

    Traveling Sisters Review by Norma and Brenda with Susanne, Kaceey, Melissa, Diane S., Holly and Mackey.

    LOOK FOR ME (Detective D.D. Warren #9) by LISA GARDNER is an intriguing, suspenseful, and a compelling read that is a race against time police procedural featuring our all-time favorite character Detective D.D. Warren, who teams up with survivor turned avenger Flora Dane.  We all absolutely loved that she teamed up with D.D. and it was one of our favorite aspects of this novel. The witty humor, the snarky comebacks, and the dynamics between D.D. and Flora was such a good balance to the heart-wrenching storyline. They both brought out their own unique characteristics, making them the perfect entertaining team.  

    Even though some of us thought that the ending was a little predictable it did have us interested and guessing right from the very start and we all really enjoyed playing detective with this one.  

    There are a few authors that Brenda and I thoroughly enjoy and it doesn’t matter to us if their books are predictable or not, we just are so excited to read the book that we savour every moment as we are reading it.  We like to follow along and learn things as they are revealed to us as the characters learn them.

    LISA GARDNER delivers a well-written, well-paced and a cleverly-plotted storyline here that is told to us in three main voices between Detective D.D. Warren, C.I. Flora Dane, and the missing girl, Roxy.  Roxy’s perspective was uniquely told to us via essay excerpts that she wrote for a school assignment that was titled The Perfect Family. We all thought this was very gut-wrenching and well executed adding tension to the story for us as it gave us a first-hand look into Roxy’s life, her family and the foster care system which stirred up quite a few emotions for us.  We felt sad, shocked, and anger towards the foster home in this story.

    Overall, this was another great addition to this series and we look forward to reading the next book, hoping that Flora Dane will also show another appearance!  Would recommend!

    Expected Publishing Date:  February 8, 2018

I really loved the dynamics here between DD and Flora and loved how their differences and agendas worked so well together Flora is creeping up to be another favorite character from Lisa Gardner for me. I Really hope we see more of her and DD.

    A question young Roxy struggles to answer.

    When it became her responsibility to raise her younger siblings, Lola and Manny? When she’s taken out of her home only to be placed in a more dangerous situation - foster care? After her family is wiped out in a heartbeat? A heavy burden to be sure.

    Detective DD Warren is called in to find the monster who massacred Roxy’s family. Curiously, Roxy and the two family dogs have gone missing. It’s become a race against time for the good detective to find them. While raising yet another major question… Is Roxy running because she’s guilty of these heinous murders? Or is she terrified she’ll be the final victim?

    As Flora, a survivor herself, entrenches herself within the investigation, she becomes DD’s newest CI and quickly jumps in to assist in the search (in ways DD cannot)!

    This is a long standing series that I have always enjoyed. Unfortunately, somehow I missed the two books prior to this release....not sure how that happened! I’m usually fastidious about reading books in order. There was some back-story I missed on Flora, but Lisa Gardner does a great job filling in the gaps. So if you are new to the series, no worries! You can jump right in!

    Just be aware…there are certain parts that were difficult to read that dealt with the abuse of children, and some frightening elements of the foster care system.

    But overall it was a great addition to the series and I’ll definitely go back and read the two books I inadvertently skipped over. Oops!

    3.5 I have read most of the books in this series, though I seem to have missed the last one. A family is murdered, all but one, the eldest sister who now seems to be missing. D. D. Warren, will eventually team up with survivor Flora, and I liked these two working together. Actually Warren takes a back seat in this one, and it is Flora who will provide most of the forward momentum in this case.

    Although, shortly after the middle of the book, I had some pretty good guesses on how this would turn out, and found it rather predictable, there were a few things that made this a better read. The foster care system, both sides examined, though of course the less than ideal home received most of the focus. I liked that Gardner tackled this system, the placement homes often not much better, sometimes worse than the homes the children are taken from. Not enough funding for this important program which supposedly was set up to protect children. Also, not enough of a labor source to provide the amount of overseeing it requires to be done correctly.

    There is also a series of essays, written by the missing girl, titled The Perfect Family, and this was both poignant and well done. Gives the reader a special insight to what was happening within the murdered family, as well as a look at her thoughts. For me, this was one of my favorite parts.

    These two reasons were the reason I went to a four in my rating. The pacing of the story was even, and the ending was rather sad. So all in all a good story for this sisters read where most of us were between the three and four mark. More than a mystery though, it was the personal elements that made the story.

    When four members of a family are brutally murdered, there is only one survivor .. a teenage girl and her two blind dogs. They are all missing. Is she a victim? .. or a killer?

    Flora Dane was last seen in FIND HER. She is reunited with Detective Warren in this story of love, loss, strength, surviving, perseverance. Flora Dane is a survivor herself but she has turned vigilante. Flora has resources that Warren can't touch, but it's going to take the two of them to find the missing teen and either save her life .. or put her in jail.

    Whether suspect or victim, this girl has had a really bad life. Roxy's story is told by a series of papers she has written talking about family and the awful things that happened to her and her younger sister and brother while they were in foster care for one very long, horrifying year.... and again later.

    The story premise is terrific. The characters are finely drawn. This one touched all my emotions .... sadness, empathy, anger, helplessness.

    I have followed this series since 2005 and have never been disappointed. I highly recommend this series, and much better to read in order, so you don't miss those little nuances that make this series so good.

    Many thanks to the author / Penguin Publishing / Edelweiss for the advance digital copy of this crime thriller. My review is unbiased and entirely my own.

    In “Look For Me” by Lisa Gardner, D. D. Warren is Back. And this time she has help, not just from her department, but from Flora Dane, the woman who survived the unthinkable - being held captive for over 400 days (see Flora’s story in Gardner’s last book, “Find Her” - which sadly I missed).

    4.25* Stars (rounded down)

    In “Look For Me” by Lisa Gardner, D. D. Warren is Back. And this time she has help, not just from her department, but from Flora Dane, the woman who survived the unthinkable - being held captive for over 400 days (see Flora’s story in Gardner’s last book, “Find Her” - which sadly I missed). Why are they working together? D. D. is called to the scene of a quadruple murder of a family, who was viciously gunned down.

    Turns out, one member of the family was missing during the massacre. The family’s Sixteen Year Old Daughter, Roxy, who left the home early that morning with the family’s two senile, blind dogs. Sounds suspicious, right? It’s up to D. D. to figure out whether Roxy was a victim or the culprit. Why is Flora involved you ask? Well, she runs a Survivor Support Group and is the webmaster of a private discussion board and Roxy was a member, thus D. D. makes Flora a CI as it’s clear that she has information that D. D. does not. What is clear from the get go is that Flora and D.D. make formidable team, they are witty, funny and know how to get things done.

    Roxy ends up on the run. The question is why. That is for D. D. and Flora to find out. While Roxy was in school, she wrote some essays about the Perfect Family. Both her current family and her ideal. It is a poignant glimpse into a young woman’s life.

    This is more than just a mystery/suspense. It is a heart wrenching novel about the foster care system, and a family torn apart. Even though I had most of this story figured out fairly early on, it did not take away from my enjoyment of it. I loved the pacing and the banter between Flora and D.D.

    “Look For Me” was only the second Lisa Gardner “D. D. Warren” book I’ve read and I can say for sure that after reading this one, I can’t wait to read “Find Her” next as I’m hooked on Flora’s story.

    This was a Traveling Sister Read. It included: Brenda, Norma, Kaceey, Melissa, Diane S., Holly and Mackey. It was a fabulously fun sister read and I loved every second of it. Thanks sisters!

    Thank you to Edelweiss, Penguin Publishing Group and Lisa Gardner for an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review.

    If you enjoy series with likeable characters and police procedural/detective stories, you will enjoy playing detective alongside D.D. and Flora. Although there are many likely suspects, in the end it was predictable. It was still an interesting, but tragic detective story.

    Another fun Traveling Sister Group read with the ladies!! To see the combined review visit their blog here....

    For all of you

    proves to be a witty addition to the mix. I have to say, their sarcastic banter turned out to be my favorite part of the entire book.

    Considering this is only my second time suiting up and preparing to dive into the deep end of the series, it’s probably more accurate to say I’ve only just dipped in a toe or two. Just a teeny tiny feel of the vast pool that encompasses these characters. I don’t fully understand D.D.'s beginnings or how her and Alex have progressed—no shocker there, I’ve missed 7 of the 9 books—but what I have picked up on is that maybe she’s gotten a little softer around the edges. Now a mother, trying to balance a demanding career and family life, D.D.'s view on things might be a bit different. That’s where Flora makes things interesting. Her quest to provide support and toughen up other survivors has made her gutsy and maybe even a tad impulsive, adding some much needed edge to the storyline. And the best part? She doesn’t have to play by the same rules D.D. does.

    When a family—mom, boyfriend and two children—end up gunned down in their own home and the oldest daughter, sixteen-year-old Roxy, is nowhere to be found, the question becomes, is

    involved or a victim herself? Could

    be the one that pulled the trigger and ended her entire family? D.D. and Flora's alternating perspectives, combined with essay excerpts from Roxy, offer a candid look at the relationship dynamics at play here and what it means to be a family. Regret. Mistakes. Forgiveness. Repair.

    Was this the most epic read my eyes have ever landed on?

    Was it entertaining?

    Will I find time for the next book?

    Much more than just a police procedural,

    examined how the foster system fails so many innocent children every day and the irreparable damage caused by abuse. Prepare to have your heart trampled.
