Chasing Amanda is a well-crafted suspense novel. In this page-turner, Melissa Foster accurately describes the emotional turmoil suffered by a mother who has tragically lost a child. In Chasing Amanda, Ms. Foster weaves a complex tale by capturing the fragility of several poignant relationships – wife and husband, mother and son, sister and brother, neighbors and friends—into one riveting main theme. Brava Melissa Foster, Chasing Amanda is a superb novel.

Chasing my Wasted Time Back

One would have to assume that if anyone gave this book, "Chasing Amanda," five stars they are not avid readers. Foster committed the perfect crime by throwing a whole bunch of characters into a book, but not developing them fully, and by making the main character, Molly, a dysfunctional, "psychic" idiot who doesn't speak well for the world of clairvoyancy. I have never disliked a main character so much in my life! This book was selected for a book club; otherwise, I would have stopped reading it. The entire book seems to have been written by someone with rampant ADHD who hasn't taken their medication--meaning the content was all over the place. Our book club selected this book as a mystery, but it behooves me to say that Foster spills the beans on the guilty party pretty quickly, or I am used to reading thrillers and mysteries that leave me guessing. Then you just follow along reading the insanity of all parties involved. As a matter of fact, a pastor keeps a challenged child locked up in the house or cellar for twenty years because that's what the family wanted, and she finds two (2) other people ("friends") who are willing to assist her keep this child from society. I can see why this book is print on demand and you have to pay for it first...

    Holding my interest

    This book is pretty good but I would not have purchased it if I had paid closer attention to the subject matter. I don't believe in psychics and that is what this book is about. However it is very well written and I'm interested to find out how it ends. If you like tales with psychics in them you will really enjoy it.

    Just okay

    Book kind of drags on a little. I liked the plot just could have been about 100 or 200 pages shorter.
