Praise for the bestselling novels of Lisa Gardner. AS ALWAYS, I'M indebted to quite a few people for their expertise and patience in helping make this book a reality. Being myself, I took artistic license with a great deal of the information but tried to keep things as rooted in the real world as possible. All mistakes are mine, of course.

The Other Daughter was my first Lisa Gardner's book and I was utterly pleased with it. This was a great and entertaining suspense story, full of suspicion, danger, and many puzzles to solve. It kept me curious and edgy almost the entire time. The plot was exceptional and the characters were appealing, especially the hero, David Riggs, who has such a strong character. He’s consistent, clever, . /5.

A crisp clean softcover, no markings throughout:nIn Huntsville, Texas, a man goes to the electric chair for the kidnap, torture and murder of six small children. In Boston, Massachusetts, a nine year old girl has been admitted to ER, unconscious and full of morphine. When she comes round, she remembers nothing about herself or her past. This girl - twenty years later - is the heroine of THE OTHER DAUGHTER. Melanie Stokes has been adopted and raised by Dr Harper Stokes and his wife, following the tragic murder of their four year old daughter, Meagan. Now someone is targeting the family, sending grotesque signals and messages, suggesting that it is they, not the executed serial killer, who may have been responsible for Meagan's death. In an even more horrible twist, a journalist approaches Melanie and tells her that her birth father was the executed murderer. David Riggs, Special Agent, sent in under cover to investigate a medical scam in which Dr Stokes is implicated, becomes romantically involved with Melanie, and then with the whole tangled mystery of her past.

Lisa Gardner hit it out of the park with this one. I loved it. It began a little darkly, but once I was into it (by just a few pages) I could not put it down. There are deeply developed characters, all of whom kept me guessing. I became protective of Melanie Stokes ("the other daughter") almost immediately. There were multiple plots, or mysteries, and it was difficult for me to determine which to focus on first. In her distinctive way, Ms. Gardner helped keep my focus on everything (!). Without giving anything away, I couldn't figure out who the bad guys were and who were not.
I personally have attended an execution in Huntsville, TX and appreciate the author's research and resultant accuracy. Lisa Gardner has always impressed me in that regard.
This is a stand-alone novel. However, if you haven't read her 6-book FBI Series, this would be a great read before FBI Book 1, The Perfect Husband.
If you figure out what's happening before the last 7/8ths of the book, you're a better sleuth than I. Definitely an enjoyable, intense read.

This novel by Lisa Gardner started off with a very promising bang! I thought I'd made an excellent choice. However the book slowly unraveled for me with familiar and expected plot twists. I did finish it, but the book was too quirky for my taste. I believe I have read one other book by Ms. Gardner and my recollection was that it was better crafted. I really don't have anything else to add.

I have read most of Lisa Gardner's books and I have enjoyed most of them. This one was very suspenseful and full of unexpected twists and turns. However, it was too farfetched for my taste - once we get to the bottom of it, without giving anything away, I thought it was pretty unbelievable.
Also, a crisis has brought these two people together, I get that. But when it's over they declare their undying love for each other. Call me a cynic, but on a regular day to day basis, they probably wouldn't be able to stand each other. Gardner could have just ended with them starting a new relationship, not ready to get married.

I am a fan of Lisa Gardner but this book was so bad. I finished it anyway. After reading “The Perfect Husband,” I was a bit over the “wounded, vulnerable woman” who falls for the equally wounded, aloof, yet handsome and protective hero. They fall in love in about a week’s time! This book just felt contrived and formulaic. Hoping the next one is better.

As some have said, this plot line is a little far-fetched but, overall, IMO it was another great LG book. I've read mystery/suspense books all my life and find her to be one of the best contemporary examples of the genre. She sure knows how to write a page-turner!

A vicious, pedophile serial killer is executed in Texas' "Old Sparky." He goes to his death defiantly, never revealing the identities of his wife and only child to the reporter who hounds him for the story of a lifetime. Across the country in Boston, on the same night of the execution, an abandoned nine year-old girl is found drugged and unconscious in a room at City General Hospital. When she recovers she has no memory of her identity or her past. She is adopted by the hospital's most successful heart surgeon and his family - the same family whose only daughter, Meagan, was murdered by the Texas serial killer five years before.
Fast forward twenty years - the adopted girl, named Melanie by her new parents, is now a successful event organizer for Boston's rich and famous. A graduate of Wellesley, she has what appears to be a wonderful life with a perfect family. Then she is contacted by a sleazy reporter from Texas who has been investigating her past. Recurring nightmares that she has not had for years begin again. She discovers a macabre shrine set-up in her bedroom along with a note, "You Get What You Deserve." Melanie's life begins to unravel as she discovers things about her parents, her brother and her godfather that turn the truths of her past twenty years into terrible lies. She begins a desperate search for her real identity with the help of love interest, FBI agent David Riggs, and slowly begins to discover that the family members she loves and trusts may be the people she should fear the most.
Lisa Gardner has written another gripping mystery that will keep you turning pages long into the night. This is a dark, scary thriller - so be prepared!

First of all, I can hardly believe this book was written by Lisa Gardner. I have read several of her books and just could not put them down.

The first third of this book was quite good, but the further I got into it, the worse it got. First of all, I figured everything out about half-way through, and I spent the rest of the book wondering if the writing was taken over by someone else. I wanted to finish it simply because I hoped it would get better. But no. I won't spoil it for anyone else who wants to read it, but really---it was just too implausible. I am usually able to suspend belief when reading fiction, but for this one I would have had to suspend intelligence.
If you want to read a cracking thriller, you can't really go wrong in choosing Lisa Gardner. The Other Daughter is not one of her latest books, but it is still a goodie. The plot is unique and unexpected.
Melanie, an adopted child - possibly the daughter of a deranged and evil serial killer- has her perfect life turned upside down in one harrowing night. All that she has believed about herself, her family and how she fits into it, turns out to be a lie.
There is enough romance to keep us intrigued, but, it is the pace of this unexpected story that keeps you reading long after everyone else has gone to bed!
