Présentation de l'éditeur

Nine years ago, Molly Tanner witnessed a young girl's abduction in the busy city of Philadelphia, shifting her occasional clairvoyance into overdrive. Two days later, the girl's body was found, and Molly's life fell apart. Consumed by guilt for not acting upon her visions, and on the brink of losing her family, Molly escaped the torturous reminders in the city, fleeing to the safety of the close-knit rural community of Boyds, Maryland. Molly's life is back on track, her son has begun college, and she and her husband have finally rekindled their relationship. Their fresh start is shattered when a seven-year-old girl disappears from a local park near Molly's home. Unable to turn her back on another child and troubled by memories of the past, Molly sets out to find her, jeopardizing the marriage she'd fought so hard to hold together. While unearthing clues and struggling to decipher her visions, Molly discovers another side of Boyds, where the residents--and the land itself--hold potentially lethal secrets, and exposes another side of her husband, one that threatens to tear them apart. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

A good suspense story well written. The plot can be guessed early on but this does not spoil the book.

Love the book, "Chasing Amanda" 13 avril 2011
Par nanascurse - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
In "Chasing Amanda" Melissa Foster guides us in helping Molly; wife, mother to a teenage son, search for a missing girl. The young girl has disappeared from their quiet, rural community; a place where things like this simply don't happen. For Molly, it's deja vu. Several years earlier, while living in Philadelphia, she witnessed a similar event. She did nothing at that time, and has been tormented by her inaction ever since.

Molly's special gift, or curse, is her clairvoyance. She can sometimes 'see' things that others cannot. In Philadelphia, she failed the little girl, whose body was found shortly after. Now, she promised herself that she would not make that mistake again. Molly persists, using her clairvoyance and sheer stubbornness in an effort to find the child. In doing so, Molly exposes her town's shameful secrets, presenting a conclusion to this story, that I never saw coming!

Melissa Foster's skill with her characters, drew me into the story immediately. The suspense that followed made this book a definite page-turner!

Melissa Foster has truly done it again. Weaving the reader through the intricate dealings with relationships, but also bringing twists and turns to the plot to keep you from putting the book down! Foster does a fantastic job making the reader feel the emotions and urgency the characters feel. It is like you are along for the journey. Put simply....A MUST READ! Wonderful follow-up to Megan's Way! Absolutely cannot wait for her next book!

Book full of secrets 13 juillet 2011
Par Sarah - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Molly's life was turned upside down when she witnessed the abduction of Amanda, but didn't recognize it as an abduction. In an effort to try to save her life and marriage, she moved her family to the small town of Boyds. Everything seems to be getting better until a little girl goes missing. Molly feels compelled to help find her, even if it means destroying the peace she has finally found. Can she find Tracey before she loses everything she loves?

I enjoyed the storyline, but didn't like Molly. I found her selfish, unrealistic and just plain annoying. I have tried to figure out why I disliked her so much, but I can't pinpoint any one thing. In the first few chapters, I found myself sympathizing and siding with her husband more than her, and I just never got over that.

Since Molly's character is such a big focus in the book, I found it hard to get into the rest of the story. I did find myself interested in how the kidnapper was. There were hints here and there, and I did figure it out about halfway through the book. This didn't detract from the story as I was still trying to figure out more of the back story.

Overall, this was an interesting storyline with lots of secrets to be revealed. I really wanted to love the book, but I couldn't connect with, or even like, the main character, which definitely affected my opinion. This is a book I would recommend as I am sure I am in the minority regarding Molly.

Review by James L. Hatch, author of "The Substitute" 15 mai 2012
Par James L. Hatch - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
I usually like to let a story simmer a bit before writing a review, but this time I am making an exception because Chasing Amanda by Melissa Foster is exceptional. What a marvelous and uplifting story. The writing is superior to nearly all novels I have read, and the editing left few issues to trip over as I traversed the story.

Molly is the Chasing Amanda heroine, a woman plagued by complacency guilt. Her "gut" told her to intervene in a potential child abduction eight years past, but she lacked faith in her own feelings and hard facts on which to act. After the child, Amanda, is murdered, Molly blames herself. Consumed by guilt, she becomes so depressed and dysfunctional that she nearly destroys her marriage and family. In an attempt to rebuild her life, she and her family re-locate to Boyds, MD. Over several years, she manages an incomplete and a shaky recovery, but is then confronted with a similar situation when another little girl, Tracy, is kidnapped. Once again, Moly is confronted with "The Knowing", paranormal visions that enable her to feel and "see" the terror experienced by the missing child. She vows not to fail Tracy, as she had Amanda, and is determined to follow the powerful seizure-like visions that grip her body when The Knowing overtakes her. The police and her husband believe she's losing her mind, but her son has faith in her ... and visions of his own.

The writing is superb; the novel is spellbinding. I especially enjoyed the dialog between Moly and her son because Melissa Foster nailed it. The vernacular is current--the exact phrases and expressions one would expect from a young man. I also enjoyed the third person presentation that enabled me to know what each character was thinking. I could literally feel Tracy's terror as she was dropped into the "bad spot", a deep hole that her abductor covered with plywood and dirt as part of a behavior re-shaping program. That scene still makes me shudder.

I will not give the plot away, but I will say two things about it. First, I had no idea who the perpetrator was until near the end of the story. I thought I did, a couple of times, but I was wrong. Somehow Melissa Foster managed to cast a cloak of suspicion over lots of innocent people. I did not feel intentionally misled, but I wouldn't want to play chess with Melissa Foster either. Second, the story is an emotional roller-coaster. If tears don't slip down your cheeks several times as you read Chasing Amanda, especially near the end, then you probably need professional help.

Chasing Amanda has an intricate and well-developed plot, and the characters are so vivid they could be real. I give this book a strong five-star rating; I'm delighted to have read it.

Righting a wrong, accepting one's truth, and finding solace 17 mai 2011
Par Terri Lee-Johnson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Novelist Melissa Foster is back with a new novel and you'll find no signs of a sophomore slump here. Chasing Amanda is an emotionally charged read that explores the boundless wounds of the loss of a child and the perplexity of a paranormal gift: "the Knowing". Both of which notoriously tear families and, even towns, apart.

"And now it's like he never existed to them. They pummeled him and forgot him--forgetting that he was a person, a brother, a son. Pummeled him and walked away, thinking they were protecting their community from some...monster."

Molly relocates, with her husband and son, to Boyds, Maryland after a devastating loss in search of peace in a small town atmosphere only to be met, eight years later, with unresolved mysteries and shameful secrets of the town in which she thought she'd found some semblance of normalcy.

I can empathize with Molly's desire to right a wrong by finding the currently missing little girl, Tracey. It's hard to imagine not only reliving the pain of your own familiar experience but also being impelled with visions of the current victim's ordeal. The men in her life are struggling with their own conflicting feelings of her gift often wondering if it's merely a question of her sanity being intact. The other residents of this farming community all seem to be lost in their own mired pasts. At almost every turn, another secret arises meanwhile, Molly battles with the Knowing that wants her to find the little lost girl and the fact that she hasn't fully forgiven herself for her own loss. The chain of events lead to an unexpected ending that I honestly thought I had pegged early on in the book. Many secrets come to light and the townspeople truly begin to heal while others have to face their past demons and retribution. I'm glad I wasn't disappointed with a predictable read.

Foster writes with clarity, warmth, and intensity. She lets the reader into her narrative omnisciently which can be a blessing and a curse when dealing with such perverse subject matter. With the penning of this second novel, I can now say that Melissa Foster's main writing talent lies in her ability to write nuanced characters that display great humanity in the midst of the bleakest circumstances.
