Présentation de l'éditeur

Dear Reader:

There's something special about your first novel, and See How She Dies is no exception. It was my first romantic suspense, originally published in 1994 under the title Treasures. I love these characters and their story, but still, looking back, I felt I hadn't quite finished. I've learned so much since then that I wanted another crack at it. So I've added more suspense, intrigue, and atmosphere. Now, it feels like a brand-new book.

As a child, London Danvers was kidnapped from her wealthy family. Over the years, many women have come forward claiming to be the long-lost heiress--only to be exposed as frauds. Now, another woman has arrived in Oregon, claiming to be London. But Adria Nash is different. She knows personal details only London could have known, yet she can't remember what happened the night of her abduction--a fact that makes family rebel Zachary Danvers suspicious. Still, Adria is determined to prove her identity. . .there's a paralyzing sense of dread she just can't shake. And she's right to be afraid--because someone does believe her. Someone who is watching Adria's every move. Waiting for the right moment to see how she runs. . .see how she screams. . .see how she dies. . .

I had so much fun revisiting and revising this novel. I hope you'll enjoy every thrilling page of it!

Lisa Jackson

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Intriguing Romantic Suspense 27 août 2004
Par Margaret Marr - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
Lisa Jackson has written an intriguing romantic suspense with lots of twisty-turns to keep you on your toes, along with emotionally scarred children of rich dysfunctional families, and an ending you won't see coming.

Twenty years ago someone kidnapped London Danvers during her father, Witt Danvers's, sixtieth birthday party. Along with London, Ginny Slade, the nanny had disappeared too. Neither one were heard from again. Not even when Witt Danvers offered one million dollars for the return of his precious daughter...the only daughter and child he had with his second wife Katherine LaRouche.

Not long after, London's mother, Katherine plunged to her death from her residence at the Hotel Danvers. Some say it was suicide; others speculate it was murder. The police ruled it accidental.

Now Adria Nash has come to Portland, Oregon to find her birthright. She believes she's the long lost London Danvers, and if this it true, she stands to inherit fifty percent of the Danvers fortune. But first she has to convince Witt's other four children, from a previous marriage, that she's not one of the many fakes that have paraded before them down through the years.

Zachary Danvers takes one look at her and knows they are in trouble. Adria is the spitting-image of his stepmother Katherine Danvers. His siblings will not like this. They are in no mood to give a complete stranger half of the Danvers fortune even if she turns out to be their half-sister.

From the moment Zachary and Adria meet, the attraction is overwhelming and torturous for Zachary, because he'd once had a short-lived affair with his stepmother. Adria reminded him too damn much of a woman he wanted to forget forever.

Adria tries to fight the attraction but it consumes her and horrifies her at the same time, because Zachary could be her half-brother! She begins to doubt she's London, because there could be no way she would be this attracted to a man who shared her blood. If they acted on their lust and it turned out she really was London, they would be guilty of an unspeakable, forbidden act.

Someone doesn't want the truth known about London Danvers and the circumstances surrounding her abduction, and they are willing to go as far as murder to keep the secret buried.

As usual, once I start a novel by Lisa Jackson, I run home from work, toss on my pajamas, hop in bed and start reading. SEE HOW SHE DIES is one of Ms. Jackson's best.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Buyer be aware this is not a new story! 2 août 2004
Par S. Gould - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
Although this is a good story which even stands the test of time, I'm really dissappointed in Lisa Jackson and her advisors. I've often said that reissued books should be clearly stamped on the cover, and they should certainly at least retain the same title rather than change the title in an effort to fool even the most saavy reader. I read this book many years ago under a different title, 'Treasures'. How was I to know that I was purchasing a book that I'd already read when there was no indication on the front cover and, in fact, a completely new title? Jackson does inform readers on the back cover but as a fan I immediately purchase any new title by Jackson without reading the summary. That said, I was unable to give this book a poor rating because new readers will actually enjoy the long-lost heiress (with a twist) story of Adria Nash and Zach Danvers.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good Book, Wish It Went Quicker 30 août 2004
Par Lisa A. Decicco - Publié sur Amazon.com

I thought this book was great until the end, the storyline was drawn out just a tad too much, but if you don't mind skipping large descriptive paragraphs, you'll enjoy this book very much, I did. I was a little concerned about the relationship between Zach and Adria, but the end eased those concerns. This book kept me guessing throughout and doubting my thoughts of who was behind the whole kidnapping....Enjoy!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 exciting romantic suspense 28 juillet 2004
Par Harriet Klausner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
In 1993 Adria leaves her Montana home to travel to Portland, Oregon where she hopes to learn the truth about whether she is the long lost and thought dead daughter of deceased business mogul Witt Danvers. Witt's three children from his first wife are unhappy that someone once again claims to be London, who vanished twenty years ago. Seven years after London vanished, Witt's second wife, her mom Kat, died in what was thought was a drug induced suicide. However, Kat's killer realizes that Adria is London and plans to rid the chit the same way her mother was disposed of if necessary.

London's half-brother Zachary does not believe that Adria is London. However, when incidents to frighten Adria occur, he becomes protective. Worse he begins to fall in love with his half-sister and she reciprocates though both know this is taboo. As the "stalker" raises the ante to attempted murder, Zach tries to keep her safe though he struggles not to bed her.

This exciting romantic suspense novel hooks readers from the moment that Zach escorts Adria from the family hotel until the final confrontation. Readers will need to adjust to the swinging back and forth between 1970, 1983, and 1993, which can get confusing. Still the cast is solid as the key players have distinct personalities so that sub-genre fans will know this rewrite of TREASURES is worth the read.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting story but.... 20 novembre 2006
Par Felicia Zezili - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
I have read only a few of the Lisa Jackson books but this one looked very interesting and I actually read through the whole thing in a little more then a week without needing to put the book aside for a little bit because the characters or the plot was annoying me (ex: Whispers). So that's a good point for her right there.

The backflashes were the most interesting part of the book. They had a good pace it gave you basic fundemental information about the characters but I could tell right off the back who the ultimate killer would be. I thought she might take a twist and make the overtly bad character a red herring but no.

The one character who annoyed me the most was Zachary Danvers. He was that type of rebel without a cause. The rich white kid who lives in luxury but craves for some excitement and goes out to cause trouble becasue he's bored. If he were just a little more sadistic, he'd probably be that kid that drives around with his friends, shooting bee bees at the people they pass on the street. I couldn't help but laugh at him half the time. If he wasn't brooding over the fact that Adria looked like his stepmom (and I believe that is a major part of why he was so attracted to her. Projection is just fun like that), then he was ranting and raving at adria for looking like his stepmom. The man needed some therapy. The best part however is when they made love and are on that thin line of she could be his sister or she isn't his sister. Apparently since he crossed that line once before (even though it was just incest in the eyes of the law) then doing it with a blood relative wasn't bad enough to stop him.

I had alot of questions while reading this book: Why didn't they have DNA tests done? I know that back in 94 they did have the technology so that they could test siblings and show that they are related to each other considering it all that probably would have just made the book a few chapters long and not a very interesting read. (Though nearly 3/4 of the book was spent with the siblings arguing over whether she was their sister or not and not much being accomplished from said arguments)

Also why wasn't Ginny Watson, London's Nanny, every considered a suspect? Just becasue her bank account was left untouched? I just don't understand the logic in that. She was the last person with London, there were no signs of struggle like she was attacked with the girl. Why would a kidnapper take the girl and her? She would have just been unwanted baggage.

So many questions that really only Lisa Jackson could answer. All in all, it was an okay book. I don't regret spending my money on it and it's good for just letting your mind drift off and relax.
