Lost Love is a delightful suspense novel based on an old friendship between Eric Dunns and his former schoolmate Larissa. Eric recently became engaged to his girlfriend Abby. He began receiving disturbing phone calls in the early hours of the morning. He was in a bar with one of his friends and he swore that he saw Larissa there. Eric even found it uncanny when his friend Scott mentioned to him that he was also thinking about Larissa. Eric’s mother contacted Eric and told him that she had a letter for him. It was a letter from Larissa. Eric knew that he had to find Larissa because his instinct told him that she might be in trouble. He began to search for any leads to her whereabouts, using the postmark on the envelope. Eventually, he made contact with one of Larissa’s former employers. This led him to Larissa and her boyfriend Ned’s house. Ned was drunk and disoriented, saying that Larissa was trying to break into the house. But was she, and where is Larissa now?
Lost Love is a very interesting and fast paced story. I could not put the book down. Sherrie Sushko’s wicked writer’s web really drew me in! I sympathized with the main character throughout the book and shared all of the emotional turmoil that he was experiencing. Sherrie Sushko did an excellent job in developing the plot. I love the fact that the author formatted the novel using short chapters. This encourages the reader to read more quickly and become more addicted to the storyline. Utilizing one-sentence paragraphs at the end of most chapters was a clever tactic. This helps to promote the aura of suspense in the book. The language in the story is colloquial and the average reader can understand the plot. I appreciate the cliff-hanger at the end of the story. It was totally unexpected and exposes the creative genius of the author. The theme of lost love versus present love was thoroughly explored. This makes you wonder about your own personal relationships. You might ask yourself if you have made the right decisions in life in terms of choosing a life partner or ending a relationship. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Lost Love and I recommend it to all readers who love suspense novels.
