    more from this reviewer

    And I thought my family had issues!

    This poor girl doesn't know if she is coming or going, but fortunately through her confusion comes a plot so spellbinding you can't put the book down. A quick read and an astounding ending.

    'Puppet,Puppet, Who's My Little Puppet?'

    It was all about victorious courtroom battles and mindless sex with married men for Amanda Travis. So she was none too happy when her seemingly perfect and uncomplicated life gets disrupted by a call from Ben Myers a.k.a first ex husband. Her estranged mother had shot a man in the lobby of the Four Seasons hotel in her hometown of Toronto. Despite her ` I-don¿t care-what-happens-to-my-mother¿ mantra, she flies to Toronto and joins Ben in the investigation as to who John Mallins was, his connection to Amanda¿s mother and why the latter shot him. Amanda finds herself entwined in dark family secrets that would shake her to the very core and make her re-evaluate her tormented childhood with a mother she thought hated her. PUPPET starts off with the ramblings of a self centered heroine whose low self esteem constantly needs to be fed with a tumble in the bed with unavailable men. Almost every page is filled with Amanda whining about how her mother was never there for her, the stiffening of her shoulders when someone has the audacity to call her by her childhood nickname `Puppet¿, her rages of jealousy when Ben is with another woman and her own misgivings about how anyone could love her. At one point, the plot disappears and one feels like a sudden involuntary witness in a therapist session. However, the novel is saved by its crime thriller aspect which electrifies and culminates in a bizarre and shocking revelation no reader would have expected. Get past the disagreeable heroine and you will find yourself gripping on for an exhilarating journey into an intricately plotted novel only talented writers such as Joy Fielding can churn effortlessly.

    Intriguing and suspenceful

    This book was really good, not as good as Dont cry now by Joy fielding but still very much well writtem. It held my suspense until the very end. One person who reviewed it stated that they were bored because they had figured out the ending, well I didn't think that it was so clear. I had many assumptions and yet the ending surprised me. Joy fielding held my suspense until the very end and I liked the story line and the fact that it was heartfealt and not excessive. I give this book a 4 because it wasn't as good as Dont Cry Now. Joy didn't disappoint. She is an amazing Canadian author.
