3.5 starsNot only is there a HUGE gaping hole in this plot, there s one in my heart now, too This didn t come close to being everything I hoped it would be One of my most anticipated reads of 2017, I was sure The Lost Woman would deliver even of what I loved most about The Forgotten Girls and The Killing Forest Louise and Eik I thought this was their big chance The payoff for all of the tension and possibility that s been surrounding them for a few books now Sadly, I was wrong.This started off [...]
3.5 STARS I haven t seen much in the way of the original series covers, but the book jackets for Sara Blaedel s US books are fantastic They draw you right in and have a clean feeling that is extremely appealing to the eye, while also containing fantastic stories inside that have you hooked throughout Blaedel is a pro at not only including a fantastic case usually some form of murder mystery or missing persons event but drawing you in with her reoccurring characters and their personal lives as we [...]

4,3 Uma leitura excelente O meu preferido de Sara Blaedel.
I liked the characters in this book it was a quick smooth read while not lacking in substance.
The Lost Woman is the latest in the Louise Rick series by Sara Blaedel, and it is another brilliant piece of storytelling from an author I have only found last year, but she is to be found on all lists for must read crime fiction in the past several years Known as the Queen of Crime in her native Denmark, where the Louise Rick stories take place, Sara has quickly shown readers of crime mystery fiction on this side of the ocean how amazing her writing, her storylines, and her characters are Her p [...]

Another excellent book from Sara Blaedel THE LOST WOMAN is less procedural heavy, character driven than Sara s previous Louise Rick novels but it s still an engaging, engrossing read as always The best thing about Sara s books The big, beating heart at their core Sara puts so much love into her characters, and THE LOST WOMAN is a prime example of that care This book puts special focus on Eik Louise s partner in the police force and recent live in boyfriend We learn about Eik s backstory and fol [...]
Gostei bem mais desta leitura que do livro anterior, O trilho da morte A mulher desaparecida aproxima se muito mais do primeiro livro, As raparigas esquecidas uma hist ria bem pensada, que aborda uma tem tica sens vel Vale bem a pena l lo Fico j ansiosa pelo pr ximo livro da autora.
Gostei muito Mais um livro da autora com cap tulos pequenos como eu gosto que n s agarra do in cio ao fim.
It s hard to read this book without thinking of death and a person s right to choose when to end their life I liked that part a lot, even if it freaked me out What I didn t like was how irresponsible one of the characters is, and a teenager that reminded me of how little I like them as characters in novels It s interesting and well written.
This mystery has a ton going on but the non spoiler version is that people are turning up dead and one of the victims was already sort of presumed dead she was reported as a missing person years before There isn t a connection until, of course, there is and that connection is shocking and also perfectly feasible Most mysteries may not be good for book club choices what can you discuss, really Motives And I am not slamming mysteries I think they re wonderful but this one would be There are a lot [...]

3.4 Gostei imenso do tema abordado neste livro, um tema de reflex o, Sara Blaedel tem essa particularidade, escolher temas muito realista que embora n o nos sejam desconhecidos, n o pensamos muito neles entanto, embora me tenha proporcionado uma leitura agrad vel, n o foi o suficiente para uma grande classifica o, pelo facto do enredo todo ele ser previs vel desde a primeira at ultima p gina Mas um bom livro para entreter e reflectir sobre a tem tica.

Another great installment of the Louise Rick series This one explores the controversial topic of assisted suicide, something that hits very close to home for me, and the different emotional reactions people have to it.

Thanks so much to Hachette and NetGalley for providing me with an eARC for review As always, all opinions are my own.I ve been wanting to get back into thriller crime novels, and I was hoping that this one would do the trick Unfortunately, while I liked it, I didn t love it.Basically, the story follows Louise, a detective in Denmark Her partner and boyfriend, Eik, disappear one day, not answering his phone and taking out a large sum of money from the bank Eventually, Louise finds him in England, [...]
A thoughtful and thought provoking book that starts with the shooting of a woman as she s working in her kitchen Having been missing for years, this case involves and baffles Louise Ricks, as the woman is the former girlfriend of Louise s live in lover and co worker and they ve had the missing case on the books since the victim s disappearance It turns Louise s life upside down.The story delves heavily into the ethical questions of assisted suicide, and makes one think long and hard.I truly enjo [...]
This was a fantastic read by Sara Blaedel and it was so interesting that I read it in one sitting Only interruptions by our cats which you can t put off Louise Rick and Eik Nordstr m seemed to fit well together and they both had what I refer to as dead weight from previous encounters in their lives With Louise it was Jonas and with Eik it was Steph Things happen for a reason and both Louise and Eik found out the hard way, never giving up hope once things became clearer You have to read this book [...]
The latest thriller by Sara Blaedel shows you exactly why she is always Number One in Denmark and around the world.A crime writer merging with a great storyteller Louise Rick is one of my favorite book detectives And even though I can t pronounce a single name in these books, I really enjoy the writing.It is very hard to review this without giving anything away to spoil the fun of unraveling the mystery of who the missing woman is was and where has she been all of these years, and what in the wo [...]
