    Paranoid is another recent thriller that I was excited to read, but was kind of let down in the end. The premise of the book was promising...someone is killing classmates of Rachel Gaston's just in time for their class reunion. Each of them were involved in a nighttime game in an aband...

    This book was great. It caught my attention within the first few pages and kept it all the way through the book. I thought I knew the killer and the woman who was at the therapists office, but I didn't know anything. This was a fast paced book, greatly written and left you say "WHAT", ...

    This is a book that I?ll be thinking about for a long time. I would call it a suspenseful thriller with some romance thrown in. Lots of characters living all their lives in a small town. Bringing some of the townsfolk together is a twentieth high school reunion that coincides with a ...

    2.5 stars ? Ugh, it's really hard to rate this one. I'm rounding it up to 3 stars, because maybe the stress of the house renovations are part of the reason of me not enjoying this that much. It took me a while to get into it and the revelations weren't as exciting as I hoped, bu...

    This book was called Paranoid but I think a better title would have been: THEY SHOULD ALL HAVE BEEN MORE PARANOID. The entire concept of this book was amazing. Rachel Gaston believed her whole life that she killed her half brother, Luke at the old fish cannery. It was supposed to be...

    Lisa Jackson has done it again! This is a pulse pounding, heart stopping, roller coaster ride of a thriller! Who killed Luke? Was it really his own sister, Rachel? You'll have to read it to find out. This book has so many twists and turns. Every time I thought I knew what was going on,...

    This book had mystery, suspense, and some romance. It moved along quickly. The ending seemed a little bit rushed, but all in all I think it was a solid read. ...

    A 20-year-old mysterious death as the reason for some murders in the present time. I like books with storylines in the past and present and I wanted to know who killed Luke. And who took revenge. But honestly: those family relations were pretty hard to keep track of. At least for me. T...

    I liked the book. It kept me reading but I was able to skip some and was still alright with the story line. Some of the paragraphs, maybe even pages seemed unnecessary. But all in all, I was entertained. ...

    The most interesting book I have read in a long time. Starts out with memories of murder from 20 years ago and then back to the present. This is a page turner and every time you think you know who it is something makes you change your mind. I hated to put it down wanted to keep reading...

    Thanks to Goodreads for allowing me to win this book. Lisa Jackson is one of my favorite writers and I can't remember reading anything she wrote that deserves less than a top rating. Paranoid is an easy to read book with lots of twists and turns and the characters seem real. So many...

    There are noises in the house, or are there? There are footsteps on the stairs, or are there? There are doors left cracked opened or were they ever closed? There are feelings of someone watching you when no-one is around. There are chills running up your neck. Why? Are you really alone...

    I was amazed to discover that I didn't write a review for this book. And although I usually really love Lisa Jacksons books, I think the fact that I even had to re-read a part of the book says something. Yes, it is well-written. Yes, I can imagine the killing of a young boy leaves trai...

    I'd just about given up on psychological thrillers, the ones I've read lately being predictable, yet this one sounded like it could be intriguing, so I gave it a go. Boy am I glad I did. We have divorced mum Rachel, caring for her two teenage children, whilst trying to keep her ex-h...
