Not Forgotten Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put down February 21, 2014
By Draaks
Format:Paperback
What a roller coaster of a read. This book had twists and turns that you never see coming and an ending that leaves you satisfied. I could not put this book down and read it in 5 hours and even though I couldn't wait to get to the end to find out the conclusion I was sad when I finished because that meant I was done with the story. If you like mysteries that keep you guessing till the very end then this is the book for you. The characters are well written and I loved the relationship between Deanna and her son. If this is any indication that every book that Donna Zadunajsky writes is better that her last then count me as a fan. I loved this book and highly recommend it.

Broken Promises Review

4.0 out of 5 stars Broken Promises February 21, 2014
By Draaks
Format:Paperback
Broken Promises is a look into what it is like living with an alcoholic. You want to believe that it's the last time he will drink, you want to believe it's the last time he will cheat on you. But when is it enough. While some think Clare is weak I found her to be pretty strong. How easy it would be to just lay there and cry. Instead she starts her own business cleaning houses and takes care of her daughter. There was some twists towards the end that I didn't see coming and I wish we could have had a little more into the story of Detective Blarks and Clare. It just seemed kind of thrown in there to me. I give it 4 stars because of the poor editing. There are parts in the book where you really have no idea who is talking and it gets confusing. I think the prologue and the epilogue was a nice touch. All in all a good read and one that I would recommend. I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Not Forgotten

http://www.bookroomreviews.comReading that you would assume that this will be the story about the “secret” what happened? How did it happen?Why did it change her life? Needless to say I was a little disappointed to learn the secret ( although I already guessed it) within the first few chapters. I actually started to lose interest in the story. Turn a few more pages and that’s when the Author GRABS you! So unless you are one of those “Sicko’s” that like to read the end of the book first you should really enjoy this book especially if you like a good mystery/suspense novel.Once I got into the book there where so many twist and turns it was like getting lost in a Corn MazeJust when you think you have it figured out you find out you turned left when you should have turned right.
Written in first person you follow this woman as she tries to unravel a web of lies and deceit,to solve a puzzle she just can’t believe is happening or has happened.Who can she believe, who to trust? Who’s telling the truth what really happened all those years ago.
This piece of work by Donna Zadnajsky is filled with surprises and is well worth the price if you decide to purchase if for nothing else the surprise ending… buy Not Forgotten

Not Forgotten Review

5.0 out of 5 stars A town with secretsFebruary 17, 2014
This review is from: Not Forgotten (Kindle Edition)
Deanna had something so life changing happen to her 26 years ago, and because of that, was very reserved about opening up to anyone.

After years of researching keeping an eye out, the house she grew up in was listed on the market. She bought it and began to move in. That’s when so many occurrences began to happen. Her son and her sister were in an accident and that’s when her life began to become unraveled. It was difficult for Deanna to believe these situations were related at first. The more she began to ask, search and dig, the more things became more unbelievable. Who could she trust, who could she open up to. Her son, her sister, her old neighborhood and town. So many questions, so many confusing situations.

Fast paced page turner. The more you read, the more you want to read. You’ll want to see Deanna find the answers to the questions. The cast of characters will keep you interested. No grammar, spelling or writing issues made it enjoyable to read.

I feel a cover with a headstone in the cemetery peaks your interest even more as to what type of story includes a cemetery headstone.

Not Forgotten Book Review

If you are a Mary Higgins Clark fan, you will love Not Forgotten, by Donna M. Zadunajsky. A page-turner, Not Forgotten draws you in right from page one, and holds your interest until the last word of the final chapter. I could not stop reading this book! It is written in a clear, descriptive language, and told in the first-person from the point of view of the protagonist, Deanna.
Deanna has lived a troubled past. Her childhood has been one built on deception and lies.  Deanna moves back to her small hometown of Mendota after purchasing the house which once belonged to her parents. The day of the move, Deanna’s son, Brent, and her sister, Sheila are involved in a car accident which leaves Brett unconscious and Sheila in a coma. Through a series of twists and turns, Deanna begins seeking answers about her past, which brings her close to death as chilling facts come to light in this suspenseful novel.
I enjoy a suspense novel that includes some romance, and Not Forgotten fits that bill. Throughout the novel, Deanna re-establishes and solidifies her relationship with long-time boyfriend, Brice. This storyline adds depth to the characters, allowing readers a chance to see Deanna’s softer and more vulnerable side. Minor characters also add interest to the storyline. Questions of ethics come into play in the novel, too. More than once, while reading the book, I asked myself if Deanna’s mother’s actions throughout the book were a sign of weakness or strength. I also had to question Hank’s motives and actions as well as those of Officer Bates. Were their actions and lies justified? These are just some of the questions that, for me, made Not Forgotten an intriguing and thought-provoking suspense thriller.

The cover of Not Forgotten, by Donna M. Zadunajsky is dark and foreboding. The eye is immediately drawn to the cross-shaped headstone on the bottom left of the cover, and then to a row of crosses and headstones in the shadow of an old wood and stone house. The artwork draws you in and makes you want to know more about Kimberly Rose Iris, the name on the headstone in the foreground.   5 Stars
