  • Christine
    Look For Her was my introduction to the beautifully complex Keene and Frohmann series by Emily Winslow.Although I did not know the history of the main characters or much of what has previously happened, I did not feel too much at a disadvantage. Emily Winslow provides enough detail about the back stories. We know that the two police detectives have had a recent falling out, due to differences on a past case. However I really wish I had read the f...

    This story had so many twists, turns and relationships that I drew myself a diagram to keep it all straight - and I say that as a huge compliment to the author! I began reading this as I do most books, in small bits, but quickly realized I wanted to sit down and give this one my undivided attention. In my opinion this is how mysteries should be written - as a big huge puzzle, with each piece slowly providing another glimpse into the scene but not...

    The reason I wanted to read this book is because it is in my reading wheelhouse. Yet, I came away disappointed. However, it did not start out that way. In the beginning, I actually was slowly getting into the story. The key word is "slowly". It was long and drawn out. It didn't seem like the story truly started to pick up until about a third of the way in. Then, it was a slow, dull movement the rest of the way through. The voices of the character...
  • Abby Slater- Fairbrother
    This novel is very complex with many twists and revelations. I did at times, find the narratives confusing and the assumed names hard to keep track of. But this novel offers an insight into the murky world of cold cases and how secrets stay buried in the past.The novel opens with Annalise Williams attending a counselling session with Dr Ambrose. Annalise is manipulative and scheming character that I took an instant dislike to. But I wanted to kno...

    I was sent this book by the publisher, and I am so happy they sent it to me.I've never read any of Emily Winslow's books before, but after reading this I will certainly be adding her to my Must Read list of authors!Look For Her is the third book in the D.I Chloe Frohman series, and although I haven't read the previous two books I was immediately drawn into the book. The plot itself is brilliant, it takes the premise of a long dead teenaged girl w...

    I am a long time fan of Emily Winslow’s writing style. In addition to her searingly honest memoir Jane Doe January , I highly recommend previous titles in this crime fiction series The Start of Everything (Book 2) and The Red House (Book 3).From the opening lines of Look for Her , a psychologist’s transcript of a session with a client, Winslow’s talent for characterisation and building suspense is once again on display. The alternatin...

Morris Kaufmann is now a cold case inspector and when DNA is finally recovered from the clothes of the young girl he thinks he is well on his way to making a huge name for himself, as the abduction and murder of Annalise Wood received much notoriety at the time of the abduction and years later when the body was found. He seeks h...

    I received this ARC from a goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review. I enjoyed this book and gave it 4 out of 5 stars because while it kept me intrigued it isn't something I think will end up on my favorites of the year. I didn't know it before I entered the contest but this was the fourth book in a series. My library didn't have the previous books, so I went ahead and read this alone. I think that while it works fine as a stand alone ...

    I'll be honest- I didn't like the first book in this series but I didn't realize that till I sat down to write this review and saw my comments on that one. What a difference this made. No spoilers but it seems to me that Winslow has upped her game by writing a book filled with secrets, lies, and I'm not quite sure how to describe it. Who was Annalise and who is actually buried in her grave? And, what happened to Annalise? Advancements in how DNA ...

    I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway. I'm not going to give a synopsis or any spoilers, I'm just going to say what I thought of the book. I have never read any of the other books in the series because I didn't know it was a series. There was one incident that was mentioned several times in this book with no backstory explaining it, so I think it would have been more enjoyable had I read the other books first. That being said, this book did wor...
  • Girl Well Read
    A special thank you to Edelweiss and William Morrow for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.The fourth in a series, Winslow is getting better with each book. Told from various points of view in first person narrative, this case is about a cold case of a beautiful missing girl from a small English village. In 1976, Annalise Wood, a teenage girl disappears on her way home from school. Her body was later discovered, the person responsible for th...

    3.5 Strangely unsatisfying. More intrigued by victims than detectives. Maybe because it's book 4 in series, which it says NOWHERE on my copy. Grrrrr.
