    1. When an author has as many books out as Lisa Scottoline, it s easy to assume she probably has a handle on things like character development, dialogue, and coherent, realistic plot lines I didn t find that to be true in this case whatsoever A handful of sloppy editing mistakes didn t help if they scream off the page at ME, who are they paying for this , either This book tries to do too much All at once, it attempts to show life in the military, solve two deaths murders killings, cover military re [...]


    2. I won a copy of this book through the First Reads giveaway.Oh man, where do I start Okay, first of all, I love the cover And second, I really like Lisa Scottoline Third, I REALLY wanted to like this book I was so excited to win an ARC of this and be one of the first to read it I am usually very forgiving with books Things that people dwell on and make a big deal out of I am usually willing to look past and enjoy the book anyway I can t say the same for this one I wanted to rate this book 5 stars [...]


    3. DON T GO is the first novel that I have ever read by Lisa Scottoline I had never even heard her name before When I read a brief synopsis of the plot of DON T GO, I was drawn to her main character, Mike Scanlon, because he was an army doctor I sincerely thought that I would enjoy it since military servicemen and doctors both hold special places in my heart The men and women who serve in both professions are all heroes and heroines, as far as I am concerned thus, I convinced myself that Dr Mike Sc [...]


    4. Oh, this book was bad I know I shouldn t even rate it because I could not finish it I skimmed through even though I didn t really care enough to find out what happened in the end The characters were not developed and so unbelievable his wife dies, he hasn t seen his baby in months and months due to being deployed, he comes home and is about to go up the stairs to see his baby but his sister in law says, no she s sleeping come sit down and eat and he obliges And it kind of goes on like that nothi [...]


    5. Message to Lisa Scottoline who I will say, for the record at the get go, is one of my favorite authors Lisa Please Go back to your Rosato Associates mystery series The stand alone general fictions are not cut from your usual fine fabric Look Again was quite good but as much as I wanted to like this one too I just could not It was sloppily written so unlike Scottoline , and filled with far too much inane conversation, implausible action, and irrelevant details Really, do we need to know the file [...]


    6. Oh darn, this was a disappointing audiobook I have recently been listening to some of Ms Scottoline s books, most notably Every Fifteen Seconds which I really liked That book was well written and a real psychological thriller I couldn t stop listening to it Don t Go is, I guess, a mystery It s the story of Mike Scanlon who is a podiatrist currently serving a tour in Afghanistan The story starts out with his wife dying suddenly and horribly He is called home to see to her funeral and finding a te [...]


    7. Wow What a thriller I had no idea what to expect but this book got off to a chilling start and the suspense continued to build from there in Don t Go, Lisa Scottoline s latest I listened to the audio version so I couldn t go any faster than the reader but this quick paced story kept me enthralled the entire way through.Audio books usually take me a little while to get into because I have to get used to the different voices by the same reader This one pulled me in a lot quicker than usual where I [...]


    8. Do not read this book I picked it up because when I walked in BN it was on the New Arrivals Hard Cover book store and the review looked good However, I did read online reviews of the book and they were all poor so it s my own fault, but, still BN, take it out of the spot light The plot could have been written by my 12 year old, that is how predictable it is There is a twist just like in all murder mysteries, but, it s down right awful The support for the new characters and information is poor to [...]


    9. I just keep waiting for the other shoe to drop in this book Mike s wife dies,although someone came in her home and probably could have saved her we don t know who Mike is in Afghanistan and has a baby at home that is now living with his sister in law and brother in law He comes home after reinlisting for another year with his left arm blown off and his daughter is afraid of him and calls her Aunt and Uncle mom and dad because they say they didn t want to confuse her WTF He found out while in Afg [...]


    10. Loved this book Ordered it for two reasons 1 have read other Scottoline books so I knew it would be good, 2 author offered via Facebook to send a paperback of my choice if I preordered Don t Go, so that s a win win in my book.Super fast read, and since I do most of my for fun reading in bed I especially appreciated the short chapters That being said, it didn t make that much difference because just as you end one chapter, you are impelled to continue The action is good, most of the characters ar [...]


    11. This was pretty good, but I wanted to like it a whole lot than I actually did The story premise had me excited and the cover is great but the execution was just all over the place, with too many story ideas all thrown together so that ultimately none of them really work I ve also yet to figure out what this book was trying to be a murder mystery, a child custody story, a military memoir, a PTSD recovery, a legal thriller It s all of these things.And while I m new to author Lisa Scottoline I d s [...]


    12. Don t GoDon t Goby Lisa Scottoline2.0 out of 5 stars Not Shocking, Surprising or Thrilling, April 14, 2013 It is going to be quite difficult to describe why I did not see this novel in the same light so many others have However, I will try I have to wonder just why the editor publisher chose not to add a synopsis of the book here but used the first chapter, which has nothing to do with giving an over all look at the book.Ms Scottoline wrote this as if it was two almost separate books in one The [...]


    13. It had been a while since I read Lisa Scottoline s books I expected a legal thriller with a gutsy female protagonist Instead, Scottoline introduces Mike Scanlon, a podiatrist in crisis.While serving on a surgical team in Afghanistan, Mike receives a devastating message from home His wife Chloe has died in her kitchen, a victim of a household accident Upon his return, Mike discovers that his wife had a problem with alcohol, drinking vodka even while driving her car Probing further, he learns that [...]


    14. This novel is far from the usual which issues from this author It is not a mystery In fact it is closer to a soap opera which, if it were a pilot, would not see its option picked up by the network It is the story of Dr Mike Scanlon, successful podiatrist, surgeon, husband and a new father who gets called up from the reserves to serve in Afghanistan and the effects on him and the toll it takes on his life and his family.When his tour just about comes to an end, two surgeons are killed in an ambus [...]


    15. I currently do not read mystery suspense books because when I read some in the past, I found the violence to be absolutely horrible I normally read for pleasure if I want to deal with mind numbing horror, I will read or listen to the news.However, I was attracted to this book when I visited my local library I knew that the reviews had been favorable and decided to give it a try While there were multiple deaths in this story, they were dealt with in what I felt was a matter of fact manner without [...]


    16. LOVED THIS BOOK Read in one sitting, couldn t put it down While Mike is serving as a dr in Afghanistan, his wife dies in an apparant household accident, leaving his baby daughter motherless He only has 10 days back home to take care of business and places his daughter in his brother and sister in law s custody After he s back overseas, he begins to find out that things may not be what they seem Upon his return, he launches himself into uncovering secrets while dealing with his emotional and phys [...]


    17. I ve read Lisa Scottoline books before and this one didn t seem like it was her writing I almost felt like I was reading Nicholas Sparks.It s a quick, easy read The story line was promising The husband is doctor who has taken leave from his practice to serve in Afghanistan, and his wife dies at home, in a freak accident He s goes home, discovers that his wife had a major drinking problem he knew nothing about, which may have played a part in her death, and he has questions about how she died The [...]


    18. Premise was exciting, execution was mediocre It was my first Scottaline book and I would give another one of re books a try if one caught my fancy, but I won t go out of my way to do so I was hoping to read a story about the struggles our war vets go through when they return home, alas it was the story of a man who goes into a jealous rage after learning his lonely and vulnerable late wife had an affair I thought the book would be about his efforts to re establish a relationship with his daughte [...]


    19. I REALLY enjoyed this book Lisa is one of my favorite writers and she does a great job with this book I was a little frustrated with Bob and Danielle and also with Mike not fighting hard enough for Emily It wrapped up really nicely and I liked the decision that was made for Emily I listened to the book and the narrator did a great job.



    20. I had not read a Scottoline book in quite some time and was pleased to see a man as the lead character I think she did a good job relating how service men and women learn to cope with all the horrors of ward Dr Scanlon had plenty of horrors to deal with I enjoyed the relationship he developed with the other men her served with, particularly Chatty She also delved into the difficulties of returning home to the life before the war This is where I found things not quite as smooth I thought emphasi [...]


    21. Having read many Lisa Scottoline books, this just wasn t up to her usual standards I was somewhere and forgot my book, but this was in my car for someone else, so I started it and really wasn t liking it But I really wanted to know what happened, so I went home and quickly finished it, sort of skimming I din t like the beginning, a woman dying and knowing she had an infant A husband who was a Dr in the army in Afganistan, who came home and did not cope well Then he leaves the baby and goes back [...]


    22. I felt the raw emotions that Mike was expericing with the loss of his wife and trying to bond with his daughter It was so sad Yet I was fully invested in Mike and his mission to find the truth no matter the cost So everything that he did or said I understood and it made sense for the story For me it was the characters, the story, and the emotions that made this book as good as it was Although, I have to say that I was not that surprised when the truth came out So there was no real suspense there [...]


    23. First Read I think Scottoline is one of my favorite authors I really like your Rosato Associates mystery series The main character, Dr Mike Scanlon, was, in a word, a flippin wimp OK, that was two words While he is serving as a medic in Afghanistan, his wife dies suddenly and horribly He returns home to bury her, where he is shocked and heartbroken to discover several very disturbing aspects of her last few months and his infant daughter has, for all intents, been stolen from him by his in lawsd [...]


    24. Many elements were present to make this a great read Elements such as the accidental death of Mike s wife Mike s active reserve duty as doctor at the front in Afghanistan his single parent status Mike s alienation from his infant child during his deployment his depression when he comes back injured and many others.Unfortunately, Lisa Scottoline didn t do a good enough job in using all these elements to present a consistently good read This read lacked subtlety and nuance, in my opinion She magni [...]


    25. Very depressing book with a plot that seemed to change directions midway Poor Mike Guy gets shipped to Afghanistan only to have his beloved wife die of an alleged household accident Upon returning home for funeral leave, he discovers that his wife was an alcoholic and his baby daughter no longer remembers him and cries each time he tries to reestablish their relationship Meanwhile, his controlling sister and brother in law have stepped in the parenting role and have basically become his baby s p [...]


    26. I started this book with high hopes, as the premise of the story sounded very interesting The hook of this story was done early, and now I know why it needed a reason to make the reader keep reading despite all the terrible plot devices that followed Through out the story, the actions of the characters felt forced it was very evident that their decisions weren t natural reactions to the events that befell them It seems that character development and the integrity to remain true to a character s [...]


    27. Don t Go was given to me by Lisa Scottoline s publicist Don t Go, is not my usually genre, still I am glad I picked up this book.It was a quick easy read on the beach This is the story of a Podiatrist surgeon, Mike Scalon returning from Afghanistan to United States after his wife is found dead Mike doesn t believe Cloe died from superficial wounds There are some thing that don t add up He must leave his infant daughter and go back to the front to finish his tour of duty He s sister and law, and [...]


    28.

    29. I received a copy of this book through FirstReads This is the first Lisa Scottoline book that I have ever read, so I didn t really know what to expect going into it However, I have to say that as a result of reading Don t Go I will most likely not go out of my way to read by her.There is pretty much nothing that sets this book apart from hundreds of others like it There are family secrets that threaten to destroy lives What will the main character be willing to do to save his family Etc I know [...]
