    Awesome Book Over the years I have read a few of Dinah McCall's

    Awesome Book
    Over the years I have read a few of Dinah McCall's books and have found my self so engrossed in the books that I read every chance I get. This book definately does not disappoint. After reading many of her books, I did have the ending figured out but even though I had to finish the book to make sure I was write. I loved all the characters in the book, they seemed like they could be the person next door. If you get a chance read this book.

    Next...

    I am a big fan of this author (whatever name she uses). Although, this book to me was a disappointment. The plot was thin and the characters were week.

    A reviwer

    not one of her best. Ms. McCall is a gifted writer but this is just not one of her greatest. her books usually keep me turning the page and finishing her novels in less than two or three days. this was not that great, but it was enjoyable at some points.

    She is such a gifted writer, I really get into her books!

    In this one, a woman, Olivia Sealy, was kidnapped as a 2yr. old child, but returned. However in the process the kidnappers killed her parents, so she is raised by her grandfather who she's very close to, very devoted to.........25yrs. after the kidnapping a body is found. A child's body, inside a suitcase. The child appears to have a strange anomaly, a third thumb. And because Olivia's family also has this strange 3rd thumb when they are born(removed later) The baby is immediately linked to Olivia and the wealthy Sealy family. Also, to make things even stranger, the baby appears to have been killed 25yrs ago. Now the question seems to be, is the baby really the kidnapped Olivia Sealy, and the Olivia that has been reared under the watchful eye of her grandfather really a fake that the kidnappers claimed to be Olivia?......... Or is the baby some other, perhaps an illigetimate baby of the Sealy clan?.........Questions abound, and Trey, the detective on the case, is determined to get the answers. What no one knows however, is that Olivia and Trey once had a hot and heavy relationship back in high school. They were sweethearts once, and Olivia broke his heart when she was told by her grandfather to stop seeing Trey or else. She did as she was told, but she broke her own heart as well as Trey's when she walked out of his life.............Now, he has to keep her safe, find the answers to the puzzle of Olivia's identity, and try and keep his hands to himself in the process-- which is damned hard, because Olivia as a young teen was pretty, but Olivia as a woman, is sexy as hell............See what I mean about this woman's writing?!

    Disappointing

    A waste of time. The dialogue was not captivating, the romance was corny, and the vocabulary was bland. The characters were just two-dimensional. I felt as if I was reading a cliché soap opera. In the first three-fourths of the book there was no suspense. Nothing happened, at least nothing that made me want to read the book. McCall kept recounting events and describing the characters feelings over and over again. Which might have been okay if they had actually changed. It was like being was stuck in a loop in time. Reading the reviews I thought this book was really interesting -but it really wasn't. I honestly feel stupid for reading it. So, save yourself the embarrassment and humiliation. Don¿t read the book.

    A most unusual storyline - sometimes difficult to keep characters identified. I will always read and recommend a book authored by Dinah McCall!!

    Too many minor details

    The book was too goody goody and had far too many details. The book could have been cut at least 50 pages. The idea of the story was good but it was never developed properly.

    Bloodlines

    When past sins are uncovered, literally, a 25 year old secret and present truths threaten to shatter one family's fragile happiness. As an infant, Olivia Sealy was kidnapped. Though she was recovered safely, that event casts a lingering shadow on her life that comes to the light when a couple finds a suitcase with a baby buried inside it in their basement walls. Like Olivia before surgery to correct the problem, the child has an extra thumb and tests show that she is the same age as Olivia. Was the wrong baby returned? Is Olivia truly who she and all who love her think? All these questions become more than troubling rhetoric when a murderer seeks revenge. To keep Olvia safe, a man who once loved her must find out what really happened so long ago. ........................ **** With twists and turns worthy of Agatha Christie or Sherlock Holmes, Ms. McCall has gifted her readers with a thrilling mystery. Even without the romantic element, it would be a strong story as she keeps one step ahead of her audience in revealing the truth. ****

    powerful thriller

    Twenty-five years ago someone kidnapped two year old Olivia Sealy after murdering the child¿s parents. Her grieving wealthy grandfather Marcus hears nothing after dropping off the ransom money. However, two months later, Olivia is found at a mall; the police arrest Foster Lawrence, who picked up the ransom money. He spent the next twenty-fives years behind bars, but has just been freed. --- In Lake Texoma, Texas retiree Marshall Baldwin works on renovating a cottage he just bought when he drops a sledge hammer on the floorboard, which leads him to a hidden suitcase. Inside is the remains of a two year child buried for twenty-five years and having the second thumb that is a genetic trademark of all Sealys. Dallas homicide detective Trey Bonney investigates the toddler murder although Olivia was his high school girlfriend who dumped him. Olivia, who had the two thumbs, turns to him to help her learn the truth as to whether she is the real granddaughter and if not who is she. --- Readers will ponder until the end whether Olivia or the corpse in the suitcase is Marcus¿ granddaughter and who the one is that is not as both have the genetic trademark though Olivia¿s residual thumb was surgically removed once the dominant digit was affirmed. Though the climax seems too pat, this story line combines a strong police procedural, a fine second chance romance, and an identity mystery into a powerful thriller that will garner Dinah McCall new readers.--- Harriet Klausner
