Book Description

“Readers should drop what they’re reading and pick up a copy of Finding Claire Fletcher.”
-Gregg Olsen, New York Times bestselling author

“A powerful, emotionally-charged story by a debut author you’ll want to keep an eye on!”
-J.C. Martin, author of Oracle


Newly divorced and with his career in jeopardy, Detective Connor Parks takes solace in the arms of a beautiful woman he meets at a bar. The next morning, Claire Fletcher is gone, leaving nothing behind but an address and a decade-old mystery. The address leads to the Fletcher family home where Claire’s siblings inform Connor that their fifteen-year-old sister was abducted from a city street ten years ago and is presumed dead.

During those ten years, Claire endured the cruel torture and depravity of the man who abducted her. Paralyzed by fear and too ashamed to return to her family, Claire is resigned to her life as Lynn, the identity her abductor forced upon her. Every time she attempts escape or betrays him in the smallest way, someone dies. Even now, her clandestine run-in with Connor Parks may have put his life at risk, as well as the lives of her family.

Connor is convinced that not only is Claire Fletcher alive, but that she is also the woman he met at the bar. Driven to see her again, he begins his own investigation, off the clock and without the police department's consent. He is determined to find her and unravel the mystery of her abduction and odd reemergence. But finding Claire Fletcher proves more dangerous than he anticipates. In fact, it may be deadly.

5-Stars! “. . .heart wrenching, suspense ridden, and eye opening.”
-Amy Castellano, Chic Book Chick

5-Stars! “Her characters are strong and believable and they will fill you with emotions that will rock you.”
-My Cozie Corner Book Reviews

5- Stars! “. . .This was a fantastic novel and I am looking forward to many, many more in the future.”
-Alex J. Clatch, Amazon Reviewer

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read for Everyone! December 5, 2012
By Sugar
Format:Kindle Edition
After finishing Finding Claire Fletcher I needed some time to absorb the story. Why? Because it was written so well, so truthfully and so filled with raw human emotion I needed time before I could put into words just how amazing this book is. As an avid suspense reader I knew there would be plenty of it in this story, what I wasn't expecting was how well a first time author spun this tale. We are all familiar with the high profile kidnapping cases like Adam Walsh, Jacob Wetterling and Jessyca Mullenburg, but what Lisa Regan does is tell us the story of a girl who had high media attention and the story of the girls who do not. Claire Fletcher is loved by her family and her abduction at age 15 tears her family apart as they tried to go on not knowing if she was alive or dead. Her mother certain she was alive continued to fight to find her while everyone else thought the case was hopeless. Ten years later when men begin showing up at the door asking for their daughter Claire and swearing to have just spent the night with her the past continues to haunt them. With adept swiftness Ms. Regan switches back and forth from the real world to Claire's world and you sit down beside her in the room she is held captive in as her abductor taunts her and you listen as she wonders if her family is looking for her or if they have given up. Should she keep fighting or should she just give up and let death take her? When Detective Connor Parks gets put on the desk he digs into the past files determined to find out the real truth and he unravels a sordid family secret of a pedophile no one could stop and a list of people missing or abused a mile long.

Finding Claire Fletcher contains so many secrets it is hard to review with no spoilers, so I will part ways with the story here and say this.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Well-Written Book March 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the story of a fifteen-year-old who is kidnapped by a pedophile and held captive for seven years. The sex offender thinks she is younger because of her build and looks, and is disappointed to find out her true age. But there's something about Claire, whom he calls Lynne, that keeps him from killing her even when she becomes an adult.

And Claire, in true victim fashion, can't bring herself to leave him, even when it becomes physically possible. Her own shame and fear holds her captive.

The book begins when Claire meets a police detective at a bar, goes home, then disappears in the morning before he wakes up, leaving behind only a note with an address. The detective goes to the house, expecting to find her, only to find her family and learn how she disappeared. He is the third man who has shown up looking for her, and the family is tired of this cruel joke. But he's persistent and hooks up with a private detective the family hired to try to find her.

This was a competently written book told by alternating the point of view between Claire and the detective. The characters were well-drawn and the story believable. My major problem with this book and probably the reason I didn't give it four stars is that there were too many chapters describing the abuse Claire suffers. I didn't enjoy reading those. After the mid-point of the book, I would have preferred to focus more on the efforts to find Claire and her captor.

I would probably read another book by this author, hopefully one with less abuse.

Exciting read. I enjoyed every minute of this book. It is suspenseful, but not too graphic so it will appeal to all levels of "suspense" book lovers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read December 20, 2012
Format:Paperback
Lisa Regan's excellent writing in "Finding Claire Fletcher" is a true page turner. She touches on the grounds of child abduction and what it is like for these children and then how it is to be reunited with their families. Her characters are strong and believable and they will fill you with emotions that will rock you. The subject of the book is a little bit difficult to read, but totally well worth it. Highly recommended for all readers!

This review is based on a complimentary copy from the author which was provided for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Emotional ride! December 9, 2012
Format:Paperback
I won this book in a giveaway, and I am extremely happy I did. Lisa Regan takes you on a roller coaster of emotions throughout the entire novel. Regan has an amazing ability to draw you in, making you feel as if you personally know, and care for the characters. I found myself feeling horrified, sad, disgusted, and at one point I wanted to stand up and cheer. This novel is a must read for any suspense loving reader.
