Almost Dead
Almost Dead | T. R. Ragan
14 posts | 8 read | 3 to read
Life for private investigator Lizzy Gardner will never be the same. It's been three weeks since her fianc, Jared, was shot on what was supposed to be their wedding day. He's in a coma now, and Lizzy is being forced to make a decision she might not be able to live with. But a string of deaths has forced her to get back to work. While they appear to be unrelated accidents at first glance, a closer look shows they all have something in common. More than a decade earlier, the victims were all members of the Ambassador Club at a Sacramento high school: a posh posse that bullied other students, one of whom remains tormented years later. In this pulse-pounding thriller from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author T.R. Ragan, Lizzy will need her colleagues and what's left of her wits to help her track down a cunning killer with a deadly revenge list before the next name--maybe hers--is crossed off for good.

I really enjoyed this 5th book in the Lizzy Gardner series. There was a lot happening, which is standard for these books, but I feel like it was all held together a little better in this book than in previous ones. Really fast read, and because these books have so much going on, I definitely enjoy them more when I read them in just a couple of days - so I don‘t lose what‘s happening. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

EadieB Nice review! I agree! I seem to lose interest if I take too long to finish a book! 11mo
Elizabeth2 @EadieB especially with this series - I lose who all of the different characters are because she has so many threads going at once. 11mo
EadieB @Elizabeth2 While reading my books, I make notes on all the characters as they show up in the book and it helps me remember who they are especially when books have so many characters. 11mo

Elizabeth2 @EadieB that definitely would help with these books!! 11mo
EadieB @Elizabeth2 When I read book 2 of a series, I refer back to the list of characters from book 1 and it helps me remember what the book was about and refreshes my mind who some of the main characters are. 11mo
Elizabeth2 @EadieB I think that‘s why I prefer to binge read series, so I remember exactly why was happening and can still be sort of in the mindset of where all of the characters were. 11mo
EadieB @Elizabeth2 The majority of my reads are series with a few standalones in between. 11mo
Andrew65 @Elizabeth2 Great review. Binge reading is good and I much prefer reading books intensively too. 11mo

#weekendreading

Reading the tagged book, which I hope to finish today. Then I plan to start my #bookspin #doublespin book, A Few of the Girls which is a short story collection by Maeve Binchy.

Very cold today and a snow/ice/rain storm expected Sunday into Monday so it‘s a good weekend to snuggle in front of the fire with a good book and participate in the #joyousjanuary Readathon. ❤️📚❄️🌨🥶

jewright Our snow started last night. 11mo
Elizabeth2 @jewright how much are you supposed to get? Right now, we are only supposed to get 2”-4” of snow, but could get up to 0.2 inches of ice, then end as rain. With the forecasted 40-50mph winds, it‘s going to be really nasty. Hoping we don‘t lose power. I was hoping for an easterly shift that would give us more snow and less ice. 🥶 11mo
jewright @Elizabeth2 2-6 inches. I‘m guessing it‘s going to end up closer to the higher range. We had ice and sleet 2 weeks ago topped with 1 inch of snow. Everything had just melted off the packing lots and here we go again. 11mo

Wow! I don‘t know what to say. 😳 So much happened! I am afraid of where things will go from here for Lizzy and the girls. This series is better and better with each book. Although this one hurt.

Reading this one next for the #lizzygardnerseriesread. Anxious to find out what‘s happening as the last book left us on a bit of a cliffhanger. #lizzygardner #trragan

eanderson I‘m a little over halfway... there is a lot going on! 11mo
EadieB Enjoy! 11mo
Andrew65 I‘ve just started too. 11mo
Elizabeth2 @eanderson @EadieB @Andrew65 I am really enjoying it so far! Fast paced, and yes - a lot going on. Will be interesting to see how it all connects! 11mo

Like all books in this series this was a very enjoyable read with some clever writing and unique plots. The strength in these books are the great central group of characters. This one took forward Jared‘s story from the cliff hanging end to the previous book. However whilst it was another very good reading I felt just a little bit let down by the ending and particularly the turn the book has taken. However on to the last book in the series.

EadieB Great review! I felt let down too at the end of the book so I downloaded the next book on audible and it's not as serious as the ending sounded. 11mo
Andrew65 @EadieB I‘m going to have to accelerate this one as needed to read before 18th and my Kindle Unlimited subscription expires. (edited) 11mo

EadieB @Andrew65 I've been listening and am already 4 hours into the book. (edited) 11mo
Andrew65 @EadieB 🤣🤣🤣 11mo
EadieB @Andrew65 I'll probably finish it tomorrow as I'm babysitting and folding my daughter's family of 5 clothes which takes me 4 hours so I'll be a captive listener of this audiobook. 11mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Most probably be later this week before I get to it. Busy at school showing applicants for my job around the school. (edited) 11mo
EadieB @Andrew65 That's exciting! 11mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Exciting but quite surreal, interviews on 25th / 26th Jan. 11mo
EadieB @Andrew65 So is your last day at Easter or will it be earlier if you hire someone? 11mo
Andrew65 @EadieB My last day will officially be 18th April, but last day with children and staff in school will be Friday 1st April. Notice period quite long in teaching in U.K. if Deputy need to resign by end of February. If Head / Principal already in another school need to resign by end of January. It is a large school with a good rate of pay so could attract a head teacher from another school. 11mo
Andrew65 @EadieB When the school last under went inspection it was graded Outstanding so this will put some people off the job. 11mo
EadieB @Andrew65 So whoever takes the job may need time to give their notice. I'm not surprise your school was rated Outstanding as you put a lot of time and energy in making it an Outstanding place! Congratulations! At least you will be leaving on a positive note! 11mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Definitely been my life for the last 15 years and a term. Don‘t think it had really sunk in yet that I am leaving. Still feel everything as intensely as ever. Thanks 💕 (edited) 11mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Definitely smacks you in the face and wakes you up to realize this is for real when you are hiring someone to take your place! 11mo
Crazeedi @Andrew65 reading through the above posts, I'm really proud of you Andrew. Congrats on the years you dedicated to your school. I'll bet they're going to miss you 11mo
Andrew65 @EadieB It does, but interesting,y not upset me at all, so shows it is the right decision. 11mo
Andrew65 @Crazeedi Thanks 💕💕💕 They will definitely miss me,, already been plenty of tears after 15 years, but I will also miss them enormously. It has been my life for more than 15 years. 11mo
tpixie @Andrew65 good luck on your next adventure! 11mo

Lizzy Gardner's fiancee, Jared, is in a coma but a string of deaths has forced her to get back to work. The victims were all members of the Ambassador Club at a Sacramento high school. Lizzy will need her colleagues to help her track down the killer who has a deadly revenge list before the next name may be hers. This is the 5th book of the series which seems to get better with each book.

EadieB They have a bit of wit and humor which makes me laugh but can get a bit gritty too. The characters are well-developed and work together in a nice way. I'm looking forward to the 6th book which is the last book in the series. I will definitely be missing Lizzy and friends and their wild and crazy adventures. If you like mystery thrillers then I'm sure you would like this series. 11mo
Elizabeth2 Great review! Looking forward to reading this one. It‘s next on my list, after I finish the book I‘m reading. 11mo
EadieB @Elizabeth2 Thanks! Hope you enjoy it too! 11mo

Too tired to physically read so started to listen to the tagged book, book 5 in the excellent Lizzie Gardner Series. #LizzyGardnerSeriesRead #TRRagan

Looking forward to this one as the previous book left off on a cliffhanger.

My favourite in the series! Get ready for a bumpy, murdery ride. People are murdered to the left and to the right. Thing is, we know who the killer is from the start. Really enjoying the dynamics between Lizzie, Kitally and Hayley. You might not be ready for the storyline about Jared though. Also, and old “friend” is back as angry as ever. Lots going on! An enjoyable read all in all!

Andrew65 Fantastic review! Can‘t wait. 11mo
EadieB @Tove_Reads I‘m at 80% in Harlech Killings so will probably start this soon! 11mo
Tove_Reads @EadieB 👍🏽 Lot less drinking and smoking in this one 🤣 11mo
EadieB @Tove_Reads That‘s good! It has become very annoying! 11mo

I've got one book after this before I finish this series. I'm needing other crime/thriller books that are on Kindle Unlimited. Anyone have any suggestions? 😊

I'm reading this Lizzy Gardner book today while drinking some tea. I had to take a break from reading to order my favorite Teavana tea, White Chocolate Peppermint Rooibos. It is limited edition and only available during the fall and winter each year. I ran out too early last year, so I ordered a ton today. Thought you fellow readers and tea drinkers might like it, too. 🍫☕️📖❤️

BookishFeminist It's really tasty & im not usually a fan of either chocolate or mint in tea! I need to grab some myself. I also have a holiday tea that tastes like Christmas in your mouth- forget what it's called but it's also a really yummy seasonal blend. 6y
melbeautyandbooks Christmas in your mouth. Sounds heavenly! 6y
DebinHawaii One of my favorite holiday teas! ❤️👍 6y
