Kurzbeschreibung

24. Juni 2014 Brenna Spector Novel (Buch 3)

When the past intersects with the future . . .

Brenna Spector is held prisoner by the past. She has perfect memory, which allows her to recall in vivid and remarkable detail every moment of every day of her adult life. If only she could remember more from her child-hood . . . for she's still trying to unravel the mystery of her sister Clea's disappearance twenty-eight years ago when Clea was seventeen. But now her obsession with finding out what happened to Clea is taking a toll on her own teenage daughter, Maya, who's been very secretive lately. And when Maya goes missing, Brenna fears her worst nightmare has come true.

. . . the outcome can be dangerous

As Brenna relies on her P.I. skills to find her daughter before it's too late, evidence surfaces showing a possible link between Maya's disappearance and Clea's. But could a case from three decades ago really be connected to her daughter? Or is someone hoping that Brenna will play along in a twisted game—one that there's no chance of winning . . . or surviving?

4.0 von 5 Sternen Chock full o' suspense! 27. April 2014
Von J. Muench - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
This is the third in the Brenna Spector series, but you don't need to start at the beginning. It's the first I have read of this author, and I am going to get the first two in the series now. STAY WITH ME is great as a stand-alone read! Spector is a private investigator specializing in missing persons cases; and this current story hits too close to home when her daughter Maya goes missing.

I don't want to spill any beans here--and there are many--so I will discuss in generalities. You can read the description on the main page, but let me tell you, there is so much going on all the time... laundry will not get done, the dishes will pile up, the cat won't get fed... all because you are frantically page-turning to see what happens next! There are Brenna's flashbacks that sometimes fill in a little piece of the puzzle, all the while there is still a giant hole you are waiting for answers to. Characters are believable and interesting, and I enjoyed how each character had the inner monologue going along with the dialog--that was pretty funny at times and a nice relief in the action. The whole story moved along at a quick clip, and yes chores took a backseat to my NEEDING to finish this book!

There were a couple things that I struggled with in this story,:
o I did like Brenna a lot; but there were times where I wanted more of the real her, not a flashback of the exact clothes Jim was wearing in the park when Maya was a baby, for example. And I understand the hyperthymesia is part of who she is, but sometimes it felt like the remembrance was an easier filler than describing a real emotion. Maybe the answer to why a situation is still upsetting to her and why she flashes back instead is in a previous story? I don't know...
o I just didn't get Brenna's mother Evelyn... She was sometimes almost stupid, then conniving, then the lying kept coming into play, then more conniving and lying, then some revelations... I just couldn't figure out what was going on with her character... She was friends with Ruth at the library, then later Brenna recalls their huge falling out... Evelyn was very confusing to me, a distraction to the rest of the story at times.

Overall, I was hooked right off the bat, and will get the first two books in the series too. It's nice jumping in at the end and not feeling left out :)

4.0 von 5 Sternen Finally, the truth is revealed... 10. Juni 2014
Von feysidhe - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

and what a truth it is! I would really recommend reading the Brenna Spector books in sequence because that will give this one more impact, but you could read this one on its own. In this book, we finally find out what happened to Brenna's sister all those years ago, a question that has haunted Brenna through all the books despite whichever mystery she's involved in solving. Brenna's perfect memory can be a bit hard to follow at times, but I think it's worth the effort. These books are so very different from any other mysteries you'll see.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A satisfying end to long asked questions! 26. Juni 2014
Von Kimberly C - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Brenna Spector series is a series that once you pick up, you won’t want to put it down.

I was lucky enough to start the series with the first book And She Was which was a fast page turner and engaging. The sequel Into The Dark had lots of twists and turns, and kept me absorbed! So I had pretty high expectations about Stay With Me the third and final book in the series. And wow, it did not disappoint.

Brenna suffers from a condition brought on by her sister’s disappearance. She can remember any day in time vividly, the sights, smells, noises. Everything. Like she is reliving the day again and again. This makes her a superb private investigator, but it also drives a wedge between her and her daughter Maya. Maya, who always feels like her mom’s living somewhere in the past. Maya, who thinks she plays second fiddle to her mom’s missing sister Clea, who disappeared all those years ago. Maya, who is suddenly missing in book three.

I don’t want to give a lot away but I recommend you start with book one. By the time book three rolls around, all of these little pieces that have been building up finally come together in one massive confrontation and it’s a very satisfying payoff. You can read each book individually, and trust me you would still enjoy each of them! But I think to achieve the greatest enjoyment of the series, read from the beginning.

That said, I think Stay With Me is the strongest book in the trilogy, balancing emotional and psychological thrills with physical danger, high stakes and action. It’s easy to root for Brenna, who has had it hard since the day her sister died. Who can’t even be in the same room as her ex-husband because it brings back good memories of when they were happy. Who really does care about his new wife, Faith. Faith loves Maya just as much as Brenna. The family dynamics, carefully laid out tensions since book one, comes to a head in book three. While this is interesting, I’m interested in Nick and Brenna as well. He’s not really front and center as he was in previous books, but this one focuses more on the core family so I understand.

Overall, Stay With Me is a solid knock out in the series. I think a lot of fans of thrillers and mystery will eat up Brenna Spector’s cases and unique circumstances. What are you waiting for? Grab a copy now!

4.0 von 5 Sternen The third novel in this highly unique psychological suspense series is full of surprises! 24. Juni 2014
Von Ray J. Palen Jr. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
STAY WITH ME is the third novel in the Brenna Spector series and features a protagonist and story-line unlike any other currently in the mystery/thriller genre. Brenna suffers from a rare neurological disorder that enables her to recall every moment of every day of her life. This disorder began simultaneously with the disappearance of her sister, Clea, twenty-eight years earlier who was taken at the age of seventeen.

What is ironic is that Brenna works as a Private Investigator committed to solving Missing Persons cases. This provides her with a small bit of closure in the endless search for her missing sister. She is convinced that Clea is not only alive and still out there but feels that recent events in her own life have been indicative of Clea's involvement.

While a unique power like the total recall Brenna possesses could become trite or, at best, an overused distraction, in the hands of Alison Gaylin it is used subtly and nicely underscores the events of each novel. The first novel in this series, AND SHE WAS, dealt with a missing persons cold case that Brenna is finally able to solve. It is with the second novel in the series, INTO THE DARK, that the plotline directly focuses on Brenna.

INTO THE DARK deals with a case of a missing web cam performer who has full knowledge of events in her sister Clea's life and even recites directly from her diary. Now with STAY WITH ME we find Brenna's daughter, Maya, pulled into the action. Brenna is a normal thirteen year-old girl who splits time between her mother and father (Jim) and his new wife (Faith). While staying with Jim and Faith, Maya is allowed to attend a sleepover at a school friend's house.

The problem here is that Maya allegedly never attends this sleepover. She also is rumored to have been seen entering a strange vehicle as she wandered down the road and taking off to points unknown. All that is left for Brenna, Jim and Faith is a text message email from Maya indicating that she has decided to leave her life and start over and they are not to follow her.

Brenna swiftly moves into action calling upon all her own skills and missing persons expertise while also involving the local Westchester Police Department. When they are able to unlock Maya's computer they find a strange series of blogs in a chat room where Maya appears to have started a relationship with an unknown adult. The question is whether or not she left willingly with this person or if she was abducted.

Brenna now lives by the personal mantra "stay with me" as she silently wishes Maya to return to her so they can solve whatever issues may exist between them. The search for Maya takes them down many roads --- most of which are dead ends. The overlying feeling Brenna has is that this is somehow directly related to her lost sister Clea. What Brenna needs to determine is if Maya's abduction is by the same person/people who took Clea or if Clea is somehow involved directly in kidnapping her daughter.

STAY WITH ME will stay with the reader long after the final page is turned and proves why Alison Gaylin has continued to receive much deserved acclaim for penning this terrific psychological thriller series that just demands successive novels. I highly recommend reading the first two entries in the series prior to digging into STAY WITH ME.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Stay With Me 2. Juli 2014
Von Sheri Newton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Stay With Me by Alison Gaylin is the third book in the Brenna Spector novel series. The main character, Brenna, has “hyperthymestic syndrome” which means she remembers everything. It isn’t necessarily the blessing one would think. It can recall bad memories, and the ability to re-live them in full detail. It can however, be very helpful when solving cases.

Stay With Me is another fun, suspenseful read that features Brenna Spector. Alison Gaylin makes this series better with each book, and this one is exceptionally better. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this series, and look forward to reading more by this author!

For this installment in the series, Brenna is still trying to find clues and solve her sister’s disappearance almost 30 years ago. However, focusing on this has seemed to make her own daughter, Maya, more secretive and she goes missing in this novel. With Brenna’s awesome PI skills, she starts to discover that her sister and her daughter’s disappearances could possibly be connected. How could that be though? No spoilers here, you have to read to find out!

This book will keep you hooked from the beginning right up to the end. I really enjoyed it, and think you will, too. I highly recommend this book and the series!

* Thank you to the publisher of Stay With Me, Harper, for providing me with a copy of this book for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
