Curled Up With a Good Book - Melissa Parcell
Katia Lief "is off to a wonderful beginning with Five Days in Summer. Fans of Mary Higgins Clark and Lisa Gardner will definitely want to pick this one up, as the suspense and thrills permeate each page. The pacing varies from scene to scene, which gives you the illusion of being able to relax and catch your breath. But don't let down your guard! For a taut, edge-of-the seat mystery, look no further than Five Days in Summer."

    Riveting Thriller

    Well-crafted and mezmerising. Katia Lief has a real winner in "Five Days in Summer." Couldn't put it down. The dramatic conclusion will totally freak you out.

    Not very good.

    Basic plot was good but the writing wasnt. Felt very choppy and rushed. If you want a good serial killer book read cody mcfayden books.

    Really really good

    I really enjoy Ms. Lief's stories - very suspenseful - from the first couple pages, I'm hooked. Excellent storytelling, I've read three of her stories, and plan on getting everything that she's written. Recommending them to friends, too.

    Excellent

    I have to admit that my expectations were low when I bought a 99¿ book that was written by an author I had never heard of. But I was very pleasantly surprised - this book is well written, just the right length, and tells a compelling story. Looking forward to reading more from this author. I would recommend this book to anyone!

    Blah

    Disturbing plot but hard to read. Writer went on and on about nothing it seemed at times. Found myself skimming thru most of the book.
