I was excited to learnabout Hannah, but this book lacked the punch I was expecting Some parts of it were still good though, so I can give this 3 5 stars.

address where Hannah picked up the checks She figured it is time to pay Hannah a visit and finally get some answers.This book continues Janie s story It seems when it was originally published, it was said to be the conclusion to the series It s not, apparently, since there is now a fifth book in the series Even though it was originally the conclusion to this series, I felt the ending left it open for future books.I liked the book It was intense at times, and often very emotional All most of the characters had something they were going through as what happened had affected them all in someway.Stephen was muchlikable in this book I can t say that I really liked Stephen s girlfriend or her father all that much To me, they seemed insensitive Asking questions about Janie and the kidnapping even though Stephen said he didn t want to talk about it.The book was good though, and I will read the fifth book in the series to see how it all ends This is an alternate cover edition of

anyMoreover, can Janie handle dredging up the past, or is it time to forgive In the end, she pays Hannah the full amount of ransom her adoptive parents had paid all these years And the story ends with her saying that she had found her true family This is the beauty in the Janie Quartet, lying among the twists and ups and downs of the plot, and I believe was also what the author had hoped to find in writing the series Finding your one true place Home I felt glad when Janie finally discovered the full set of the truth, despite many heartbreaks and pauses in her pursue of the truth What she got in

I can t not read these, but I really haven t liked any since the second. This book explored a suspicion I ve had since book 1 It was deeply satisfying to finally have that explored answered It was also another rapid must keep reading story I m sad to think I only have one book left Ill definitely fondly remember this series and refer to it as something that ate a weekend in august 2017 This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I am a Janie fan, but I felt that this one was by far the weakest link I will say Janie has matured in this novel she now wants to drive on her own, she takes care of the finances for her mother, since her father has had a stroke, but most importantly, she makes it clear to Reeve that he is not forgiven for the liberties he took in exposing her story to the world Janie has been seen to have a sort of unhealthy infatuation with not only Reeve, but marriage I think her mother s struggles in ha I am a Janie fan, but I felt that this one was by far the weakest link I will say Janie has matured in this novel she now wants to drive on her own, she takes care of the finances for her mother, since her father has had a stroke, but most importantly, she makes it clear to Reeve that he is not forgiven for the liberties he took in exposing her story to the world Janie has been seen to have a sort of unhealthy infatuation with not only Reeve, but marriage I think her mother s struggles in having to take on so much after being taken care of by her husband, have made Janie reconsider the notion of happily ever after But the cons take over the story never reaches the climax They find out that Frank has been sending money to Hannah over the years and Janie is upset and tries to find out where Hannah is living, but comes up with nothing Stephen and Brian are the best parts of the story, as they are the ones who are not seeming to be damaged, but rather curious and moving on Stephen s gf Kathleen is a b She seems a bit too interested in Stephen for his history, not his present her constantly calling Janie the kidnapette , wasthan a bit insulting But the story is just a theory and mystery that has no build and no real need to be there In fact, all of these events were rehashed in Janie, Face to Face,coherently than they were in this book I m still looking for what Janie was supposed to have found
