Book Spotlight: Look For Me by Lisa Gardner

Last February I read Look For Me by Lisa Gardner, the latest book in her Detective D.D. Warren series, when it was first released in hardcover, and I loved it! You can find my thoughts on the book here. Next week, on December 31st, the book is being released in trade paperback and to celebrate, I am helping the publishers get the word out. 

Are you a fan of this series? If not, now's the perfect time to jump in. Look For Me in its paperback format will be the perfect book to cozy up with during on these winter nights. It's a perfect introduction to Lisa Gardner for new readers and an exciting addition for dedicated fans, plus it will be just the book to read as we all eagerly await the next installment of this series, NEVER TELL, which will be out in February!

Title: Look For Me
Author: Lisa Gardner
Series: Detective D.D. Warren, #9
Published: December 2018, Dutton Books
Format: Paperback, 416 pages

In #1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Gardner's latest twisty thrill ride, Detective D. D. Warren and Find Her's Flora Dane return in a race against the clock to either save a young girl's life . . . or bring her to justice.

The home of a family of five is now a crime scene: four of them savagely murdered, one--a sixteen-year-old girl--missing. Was she lucky to have escaped? Or is her absence evidence of something sinister? Detective D. D. Warren is on the case--but so is survivor-turned-avenger Flora Dane. Seeking different types of justice, they must make sense of the clues left behind by a young woman who, whether as victim or suspect, is silently pleading, Look for me.
