Publisher's Summary

When Eve Duncan gave birth to her daughter, she experienced a love she never knew existed. Nothing would stand in the way of giving Bonnie a wonderful life - until the unthinkable happened and the seven-year-old vanished into thin air. Eve found herself in the throes of a nightmare from which there was no escape. But a new Eve emerged: a woman who would use her remarkable talent as a forensic sculptor to help others find closure in the face of tragedy. Now with the help of her beloved Joe Quinn and CIA agent Catherine Ling, Eve has come closer than ever to the truth. But the deeper she digs, the more she realizes that Bonnie’s father is a key player in solving this monstrous puzzle. And that Bonnie’s disappearance was not as random as everyone had always believed...

What disappointed you about Bonnie?

I found this story incredibly difficult to listen to. I waded through (as I did with the last two IJ books) just so that I would know what had happened to Bonnie. and could say a final goodbye to anything written by Iris Johansen. I don't know whether I have matured as a reader or if Iris has just given up / passed her books on to be ghost written. The habit of using

What do you think your next listen will be?

The Snowman by Jo Nesbo

solid, articulate, really, as good as possible given the material

What character would you cut from Bonnie?

Repetition to death

I bought this audiobook based on the positive reviews and found myself being very disappointed.
I think it was the dialogue that did it for me. It was repetitious, dull, and used in excess. Fast-forwarding 10-15 minutes at a time did not matter as the characters were still harping on about the same things over and over and over and over and over again.
In short, I was bored by this book.

Oh my goodness. :(

What disappointed you about Bonnie?

First of all, the narrator grated on my nerves. Can't say exactly why, but you know how it is. Sometimes you really like the voice, and sometimes you don't. Secondly, I thought the plot was rather corny, the characters vague. After a while, I didn't care where the heck Bonnie was.

What was most disappointing about Iris Johansen’s story?

Everything.

What didn’t you like about Jennifer Van Dyck’s performance?

I particularly didn't like her voice of Bonnie.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

None.

The end is here

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes. This story tied up a lot of loose ends that were left dangling in other story lines.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

The pace was a bit slow at times. There was a lot of time spent tracking down key suspect in story. I would have liked the character relationship between Gallo and Katherine developed more.

Have you listened to any of Jennifer Van Dyck’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I enjoyed it.

Was Bonnie worth the listening time?

Yes. Finally...we know how and why and the who of Bonnie's death.

Any additional comments?

Not what I had expected for the final story. It was a bit anticlimactic. The bad guys from all other stories gave the impression that something much different (and more horrible) happened to Bonnie.

The End of the Quest

I loved the book, it is one of my favorite Eve Duncan books. With following Eve for over a decade I am so happy Eve finally found Bonnie, but I am not sure how I feel now that the quest is over.

Long time coming

I’m glad the mystery of Bonnie’s death is finally revealed. I agree with others who commented that there was too much repetition in this book. I can think of no reason why an author would write, verbatim, things that had been covered in a previous book. A trilogy is just that. Volume one, two and three. If someone picks up volume two first, a little background is all that is needed to bring them up to speed. Not repetition. Add to that the fact that the only descriptions used to describe the emotions of the characters relates to their lips, and now we’ve got a combination that made we want to quit. But I had to know what happened to Bonnie so I kept going. The supernatural thing didn’t bother me. This is fiction so whatever happens is fine. That being said, I think I will take a break from Eve Duncan and listen to some good old fashioned murder mysteries!

Beautifully Written and Touching

As always Iris has managed to capture every emotion possible. Having to wait to discover the person and circumstances that ended Eve's daughters life was not easy. But the story of her journey was truly heartfelt and moving.

Emotional

An amazing story! Be ready for a tearjerker at the end unless you have absolutely no feelings or haven’t read the other books of the series. Awesome wrap-up to the years long search for Bonnie!

Excellent series

Narrator is engaging. Iris Johansen makes it so even though this is a series, the reader isn't lost with the background info or part events. #UnitedStates
