    ***ARC received in exchange for an honest review***New York Times bestselling author, Iris Johansen, does it again in Shattered Mirror, Eve Duncan #23. WOW what a ride this one was.

    I was lucky enough to receive and ARC copy thanks to Goodreads and St. Martin’s Press. Thank you! This is #23 of the Eve Duncan Series and THIS is how you write a book #23. (Janet Evonovich should take note…although I don’t care if she does, after reading her last Stephanie Plum book, her writing is dead to me now.) I really like these books. I love how not all the characters are in each book, but are usually mentioned. Iris weaves a great ...

    I received this book as part of a giveaway. Initially, I was excited to receive the book since I had read "And Then You Die..." and "No One to Trust" in high school and had enjoyed them very much. This book is in a much different vein. The first couple that I read were spy-thrillers (with the inclusion of a romantic element, but I found them enjoyable for the spy storyline). "The Shattered Mirror" is more psychic-suspense and definitely not up my...

Lake Cottage Atlanta, Georgia- When a box containing a human skull is left in the passenger seat of their truck, where only moments earlier their son Michael was sitting, Eve and Joe realize that someone is trying to send a message.

    Eve Duncan receives a package on her porch, a burned skull that she feels compelled to restore. But dark forces are operating not far from her home and soon everyone she loves is under the threat of a mad killer seeking revenge. This is by far the best Eve Duncan book that I have ever read! The characters are realistic and portrayed with great emotion and detail. The man who is trying to destroy Eve and her family is diabolical and so twisted tha...

    SHATTERED MIRROR by Iris Johansen is the number 23 in the Eve Duncan series. I know I’ve read one or two of these in the past and must have liked them, but I can’t say the same for this outing. While the plot had some holes in it (why Sylvie for one) there was more than enough action to make the story move pretty quickly. On the negative side I almost gagged from all the schmaltz going on between the characters. Does anyone every only have he...

    I received my ARC of Eve Duncan book 23 this week. I have never read any of Johansen, so I decided I should at least read book 1 to get myself a bit familiar with the character. This was a GoodReads giveaway win of an Advance Uncorrected Proof. The finished work is scheduled for release in April 2018.Well I just finished this book 23. Apparently in the 21 books between 1 and 23, a lot has happened in this series. You don't need to have read any o...
  • Paula
    Shattered Mirror by Iris Johansen has strong family relationships, along with the mystery and suspense elements. What it does not have is Jane and her boyfriend from the last book in the series. This one centers on Eve, her husband, son and Cara while at home in Atlanta. The psychic mystical element is prominent in this book, so it is far from realistic. That is not to say that it is not a pleasure to read. It also has so many twists and turns, ...
  • Sarah
    Thank you NetGalley for the ARC of Shattered Mirror by Iris Johansen that I read and reviewed.This was another excellent Eve Duncan book. This book had a lot of Eve, Joe, their son Michael, Cara and Jock in it so it was awesome having so many characters that we have grown to love throughout the series in this book.I really loved how Cara has grown up in this book and how her feelings for Jock are finally explored a bit more. I can't wait until th...

    Once more, I am lured deep into Eve Duncan's deadly world. The dead Speak to,her in terms of their bones. Eve Duncan can take bones and reconstruct them in a way that shows who or what they were before they ended up dead. I love that about Eve. Now, Eve is a mother and a wife. She's being targeted by a killer. The killer doesn't like Eve and the way she's handling everything. It bothers the killer until the killer feels only rage and hatred. Beca...
  • Nicki
    Another solid Eve Duncan novel. This book brought the chaos to the homefront, with Joe and Eve trying to protect their family from a man who has a score to settle. The first half of the book was a little slow to set the story up but became action packed and riveting until the end. Some parts where predictable, others surprising. Something that bothers me with all of these books is the formal dialogue, especially with the younger characters like C...

    I won an advanced copy of this book from Goodreads and St. Martin Press so --Thanks! You guys rock! I love this author and have read almost all of her books. A interesting plot to be sure. I'm not giving any spoilers! All I will say is sometimes coincidences are not what they seem. We have Eve, Joe, Cara, Jock, Michael, and new girl Darcy. On the last few of her books I have read I comp!aimed that it seemed none of the female leads could find a g...
  • Jessica Woods
    Shattered Mirror is a high octane, adrenaline fueled read. From the first page, the book raises your adrenaline and becomes glued to your hands. A skull had been delivered to Eve Duncan, an unspoken threat made against her son. Someone has been watching and waiting. Returning home,Cara is drawn into the danger and her new friend school while Jock returns as the deadly protector. Most of the characters you love are back for an action packed read w...

    Another excellent Eve Duncan book. Each succeeding book gets better. Great new character Darcy, Cara's roommate at school. A skull is left in a box with a mirror on the seat of Joe's truck, minutes after Mchael was sitting there. Eve works her magic but imagine her shock when she meets Cara's friend Darcy. She is an exact replica of the reconstruction, a twin. Many twists and turns as the killer comes closer and closer. I love the relationships b...

    I won this book in the Goodreads First Read giveaway program – thank you.I’m a longtime fan of all of Iris Johansen’s books, especially the Eve Duncan series. As with many long running series, one has to wonder how the author can keep the reader interested/top the last book. I have concluded that it’s just the magic of an author’s creative mind, for which I am so thankful!Shattered Mirror is a complex and compelling read. It kept this r...

    #ShatteredMirror #NetgalleyI want to say thank you to Netgalley and St. Marten's Press for the E-Arc copy of this book.I hadn't read Eve Duncan in a while, but quickly caught on to the plot of this novel. I like Iris Johansen's writing and for this being number 23 it's still really fresh. If you like suspense and enjoy a lot of twists and turns then Shattered Mirror is defiantly worth reading. Eve Duncan has that great appeal that if you read one...
  • Ada Lavin
    While I have read several other of Iris Johansen's books books this was not one of my favorites. It wasn't a bad book. It just wasn't as good as what I was expecting. It seemed heavy with over explanation of reoccurring characters. And some of the characters just felt a little unbelievable to me. That being said the main plot of the story had a lot of promise. I thought that the book could have been so much better than it was. I was really disapp...
  • Athena Stephenson
    *This book was provided to me by Netgalley for an honest review* A pulse pounding, emotional, thrilling, explosive ride! This book had it all, from a wonderfully unique and loving family, fierce, brave, protective characters, an evil, sick villain and a twisted web of mystery. I haven’t read an Eve Duncan novel in years and I’m kicking myself for it! This author knows how to keep you gripping the edge of your seat the entire time! Phenomenal!
  • Linda Joplin
    One of the better recent Eve Duncan books...As usual, someone is after Eve and her family. There was a lot of set-up to the story, but it came together pretty quickly. It's amazing how Eve and/or someone in her family is always a target for a sicko or in trouble. Eve is super tough, and her husband, Joe, is as well. I wouldn't want to mess with either of them!I highly recommend Johansen's Eve Duncan series, but I would recommend that they be read...
  • Jackie Rogers
    Wow! Iris johansen does it again. Have read most of her Eve books and liked them all. This most recent one was another I couldn't put down. Was up at 3:30 this am to finish it. As usual it begins with a reconstruction of a skull she finds on her doorstep. This leads to a killer who wants Eve's family dead. In an elaborate ending the shockers are one after another. Read this book. Thanks to Ms. Johansen and Goodreads. This novel is out the end of ...
  • Aisha
    I’ve literally been reading books from this author since I was 13 and almost 20yrs year later she never disappoints. The book shows you what family and love is about. The family that you depend on sometimes is proven to be your friends. I loved the ending it gives you something to look forward to. If you enjoy a good thriller this book is for you. I received this book from NetGalley for a honest review.
  • Rachel Stansel
    I have read most of the books in the Eve series. I do enjoy them for the storyline, but at the same time they drive me a bit nuts. No one talks like these people. I like the characters to some degree but find them very unrealistic. If you have read others in the series, this is comparable to the last few. If you haven't, I'd pass.Full disclosure - I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review
  • Ruth
    I usually enjoy Iris Johansen books, but this one felt like she was writing on auto-pilot. The characters seemed flat and one dimensional compared to her previous Eve Duncan series books so I didn't really care as deeply about any of them. I was definitely not as engaged in this story as I had expected to be, though I was lightly entertained.
