Book Description

V.C. Andrews, queen of Gothic fiction for twenty-five years, explores a new genre in her women’s fiction debut—available exclusively as an eBook. A young mother struggles to keep her marriage together in the wake of her daughter’s kidnapping…and to keep hope of her return alive.

Grace is the doting mother of Mary, an angelic five-year-old who charms everyone around her. But in one tragic moment at a local shopping mall, Grace looks down to discover that Mary is no longer at her side…and can’t be found anywhere. She and her husband wait by the phone for a ransom demand that never comes. For months Grace believes that Mary is somewhere, alive and safe, waiting to come home to her—but as her family and friends give up hope, Grace’s marriage begins to crumble. Only one detective, Sam Abraham, shares her determination to find Mary…but could his motives be less than altruistic?
As Sam and Mary work together to track Mary’s disappearance, they discover clues that this was more than a random kidnapping—and that Mary may have been special to more than just her mother…

1.0 out of 5 stars Capturing a Waste of Time August 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read Capturing Angels when it first came out in the wee early hours. The plot is simple (and has been done to death), a woman's young daughter is kidnapped and she never gives up hope of finding her. V.C. Andrews only published five complete novels before her death, but I loved her Gothic style. The ghost writer's, Andrew Neiderman, books have really went downhill with every new release, completely losing V.C. Andrew's voice.

After I read Capturing Angels, I did like the basic premise of the story, but once I reread it over the weekend, with an open eye, I have a different viewpoint. Being a writer myself, I noticed several mistakes where the Neiderman was telling a little bit more than showing. The plot doesn't even resemble the dark twisted plots from the older V.C. books. Maybe this was a story Neiderman meant to publish under his own name, but no publisher would touch it. Therefore, it was published under V.C. Andrews because her name (or should I say logo) sells more. I think it is time to get a younger and better ghost writer.

If you are looking for a well plotted mystery, then look somewhere else, because you won't find anything interested in Capturing Angels.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hmm... August 31, 2012

***This review contains spoilers***

It is a sad day when you can sum up a book by one of your favourite authors with one word and that word should happen to be boring. Unfortunately, this is exactly how I would describe Capturing Angels by V.C. Andrews. Gone is the gothic romance and fractured fairytales that made the name V.C. Andrews a worldwide phenomenon and in its place is a short, mediocre and poorly researched tale of a little girl who is abducted by a religious fanatic who believes that she has special qualities.

Told from the perspective of Grace, a thirty-something wife of a religious zealot, the novel opens with the abduction of Mary, her five year old daughter, before turning to focus on the problems with Grace's marriage, her affair with a police officer and the eventual discovery of who abducted Mary and why. Unlike novels by the original V.C. Andrews, there is nothing terribly groundbreaking or shocking about this story, but for a few plot holes. I find it incredible that the police did not interview Margaret, a close family friend, immediately after Mary's abduction, for example. Of course, its worth noting that this novel was not actually written by V.C. Andrews, but Andrew Neiderman, a popular horror writer whose novels are often a hit-or-miss affair (Pin and The Devil's Advocate are both hits for example, Sister, Sister and Someone's Watching are misses.) VC Andrews wrote just a few novels before she died, while more than sixty have been written by Neiderman. Personally, I think that it was high time V.C. Andrews name was retired or a new ghostwriter with a fresh voice and perspective was found, but that is just my humble opinion.

1.0 out of 5 stars terrible August 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This was honestly the most terrible V C Andrews book ever!!!! The ghost writer is BUTCHERING the V C Andrews legacy and her children should be ashamed for letting him do it! The plot of this book was totally predictable from the beginning to the end! Anyone with a brain could see the mother was going to have an affair with the detective, God is used as a scape goat for the child's kidnapping, the author tried to make us believe the father had something to do with it, and we ALL could have predicted the neighbor lady who was obsessed with the child was the actual kidnapper for whatever reason. The other thing I did not like was that the story was never told to make us care about the little girl that was kidnapped. We never received any information to make this child real to us! I feel very disappointed with the V C Andrews books to the point that I no longer purchase them and I used to purchase every one I could get my hands on. I could sit down and write a better novel than this garbage.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a good book December 2, 2012
By Jessica
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've got to say that i love the recent V.C. Andrews books, however this book wasn't good! It wasn't the worst book ever written but certainly not the best! The beginning is good when she lost her daughter and kept the story moving, until the 2nd chapter! The 2nd chapter until the last one seemed to drag and not much action. There was a couple of love scenes that was even boring. It got really good towards the end and there isn't any cliff hangers!

3.0 out of 5 stars Just ok September 7, 2012
By Tonya
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Haven't read a new VC Andrews book in years since the ghost writer started so I thought is give it a try. This book was just ok. Didn't have the true feel of the original author or her style. It was an easy read but it was hard to know or like the characters. I felt it was just a surface story...lacking depth.
