Never Tell by Lisa Gardner Review

"Memory is a funny thing. There are moments that sear into our minds. If we're lucky, it's because we're happy-first kiss, wedding day, birth of a child. The kind of experience where you both have it and stand outside of it, because your brain recognizes this is something so special that you're going to want to relive it."

I've heard so many great things about Lisa Gardner's books and after reading Right Behind You last summer, I had to find out if I would like Never Tell more than my previous read by the author. I definitely look forward to reading her others books now!

Never Tell is fast-paced and action packed. It leaves no time for the reader to get bored. Definitely a page turner! The twists and turns are not only convincing but also well disguised. My suspicions were right about the suspect but I did miss the "why" so I don't feel like this took away from me enjoying the book. 

I loved Flora's part in the novel and felt bad for everything that happened to her in the past. I'm sure it goes more into details in Gardner's novel "Find Her". I also like the relationship that was formed between Flora and Evie. 

Thank you NetGalley and Dutton Books for my copy in exchange for an honest review.

My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Here's a quick synopsis:
A man is dead, shot three times in his home office. But his computer has been shot twelve times, and when the cops arrive, his pregnant wife is holding the gun.

D.D. Warren arrives on the scene and recognizes the woman--Evie Carter--from a case many years back. Evie's father was killed in a shooting that was ruled an accident. But for D.D., two coincidental murders is too many.

Flora Dane sees the murder of Conrad Carter on the TV news and immediately knows his face. She remembers a night when she was still a victim--a hostage--and her captor knew this man. Overcome with guilt that she never tracked him down, Flora is now determined to learn the truth of Conrad's murder.

But D.D. and Flora are about to discover that in this case the truth is a devilishly elusive thing. As layer by layer they peel away the half-truths and outright lies, they wonder: How many secrets can one family have? (Reference : Goodreads)

Happy reading,
