Lisa Scottoline's "Don't Go" was a solid read!

Just finished "Don't Go" by Lisa Scottoline. It was a good solid read. There were a few predictable parts but overall it kept my interest the entire book. I usually skip over the bloody parts, but the sections where Dr. Mike was in Afghanistan were very captivating. 
Wish that we, the readers, had known Chloe more but that probably wasn't important to the book. Re-entering normal, everyday life after serving in any capacity in the military must be hard, even without a murder!
Liked the ending and hope that other soldiers can find their way back into everyday life also. Did not see the twist of the murders coming. Definitely did not pick that out! Don't want to spoil it for you. This novel may not be my favorite Lisa Scottoline novel, that would probably be "Save Me" but have enjoyed all that I have read to date. I am looking forward to reading some of her older books in the Rosato & Associates series.

I think I have always been a reader. I was probably reading the books along with my Mom when she was pregnant with me! I love to read all kinds of books and have a book club selection that I read every month. The book club has forced me to read books that I normally would not read. Along the way I have found books and authors I would probably have not found on my own. I have found some terrific books and authors!
Being a North Carolina native, I love North Carolina authors! Margaret Maron and Sarah Addison Allen and of course, Nicholas Sparks are some of my favorites. I was totally blown away by Diane Chamberlain's "The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes!" Our book club is reading Basket Case by Carl Hiassen. I am looking forward to reading this since I have read several of his novels and laughed out loud.
