Touch & Go by Lisa Gardner #ThrowbackThursday

Renee @It’sBookTalk began this Throwback Thursday meme as a way to share some of our old favorites as well as sharing books that we’re finally getting around to reading that were published over a year ago. 


Release: 2013
Publisher: Dutton
Genre: Mystery/Thriller

I read and loved the first Tessa Leoni book many years ago, but I hadn’t continued with the series. I bought Touch & Go a long time ago and last week I finally decided it was time to read it. It didn’t take me long, as this was a fast-paced thriller, more action than mystery, I guess, and everything was thrilling and intense. I liked it and had a great time with it, but I didn’t love it as much as Lisa Gardner’s Love You More, which I still remember fondly.

Touch & Go by Lisa Gardner is the perfect book for those days when you want something to grab you. You know it’s never going to get boring. It’s a unique kidnapping case where the whole family is held hostage and no one seems to know the reason why. As you can imagine, the family has a lot of secrets… It’s an addictive book. And Tessa Leoni’s interactions with the rest of the characters were fun to read, especially now that she’s a private investigator. Have you read more books in the Tessa Leoni series?

    Congrats on reading one of your own books! 🙂 Sometimes I go a long time between reading books in a mystery series. It can be months and months. In fact, I’ve got a couple of mystery series I really need to get back to! This is one author I’ve not tried.

    Lisa Gardner is one of my favorites; I’ve read all her books except her new one, which I plan on reading in April. I agree that this wasn’t as good as Love You More, the 1st! Even the 3rd book in the series, Crash and Burn I didn’t think was as good as the 1st, but it was still good! I don’t think I’ve read a Lisa Gardner book I didn’t like though 🙂
