      The first thing I ever wrote that received any notice was a one page story for my third grade English teacher I don t recall what the assignment was, but I somehow found myself writing about a woman at a dinner party who suddenly realizes her teeth are invisible She sits there, wedged between two chattering guests, wondering how she will eat, how she will talk, and generally how she will get out of the situation without having to open her mouth and reveal her dilemma My teacher showed the story to my parents with a note to this effect Katia could be a writer.What if her note had instead encouraged me to be a dentist But it didn t And so here I am.So far I ve published two literary novels as Katia Spiegelman, the name I was born with , and seven suspense novels five as Kate Pepper a pseudonym and two as Katia Lief the name I live by And to complicated things even , I m adding a new pen name to my arsenal Karen Ellis with my new novel A MAP OF THE DARK, coming January 2, 2018.I have loved writing every one of my novels, and hope you will enjoy reading them.

    1. This was really good When you think you knew who the bad guy was you were proven wrong Emily, wife and mother of 3 heads to the grocery store And doesn t come back Will, the husband finds himself in the worst possible nightmare once he finds out about his wife The story is told over a period of 5 days and every chapter , leaves you yearning for The only thing I was a bit off on was the ending But even then, I still liked the ending If you like crime, suspense and a good story telling, this is f [...]

    2. Mother disappears while on a grocery shopping errand Involves dad, grandma, two children and some unlikely cops Keeps you turning the pages, but the grandmother was a little too stupid for my taste.

    3. Actually this was pretty good Started it assuming I wouldn t like it or care about the woman in it can t say I really thought much about her at all anyway but none of that mattered really This book was mostly about guys The guys in the missing woman s life her husband and two sons grandma was a dull old bag, daughter just a whiny baby , the police officers and FBI agents and the perp who I did actually have pegged Sure there s a female cop helping to drive the investigation, but all I remember a [...]

    4. Ich wei nicht, ob ich es nicht so gut gefunden habe, weil ich lerne Deutsch gerade aber ich habe fast alle verstanden oder weil das Buch nicht ausgezeichnet ist.Ich meine, es ist gut aber nicht so gut Das Ende war eine berraschung Trotzdem war das Rest des Buches nur eben, flach.Kaum Spannung, keine Angst vor dem T ter als ich gelesen habe Keine Ahnung, vielleicht war nur ich, vielleicht ist das Buch.

    5. The events in the book take place, as the title implies, over a five day period As it opens, on September 3, 2001 and that specific date is significant , Emily Parker, a young wife and mother, has left her children a one year old girl and two boys, ages seven and eleven with her mother to run a small shopping errand She never returns from that chore, and there is no clue as to what has happened to her Vacationing in Cape Cod, the family had been scheduled to return to New York City the following [...]

    6. It isn t very often that I read a book that I have to put down and walk away from in order to collect myself emotionally before continuing to read it However, with this book, I found myself only able to read about 15 pages before having to set it aside and go kiss, love and squeeze every single one of my children and yes that includes the dog LOL I m not sure what it was about this book that made me feel this way, it isn t as though I ve never read books that follow this same basic plot line I t [...]

    7. On a hot September day in 2001, Emily Parker goes to a grocery store in Cape Cod and never comes home again Her husband reports her missing, but he feels his pleas are not being taken seriously, with Emily being dismissed as another wife who s left her husband Only one man appears to show an interest retired FBI profiler John Geary One of Geary s unsolved cases involved tracking a serial killer, who struck every seven years in September The killer would always target a mother First the mother wo [...]

    8. Katia Lief also known as Kate Pepper has written lots of books but I quite enjoyed her book Hide and Seek which was released in 2010 This new stand alone in the US published under the Title Five Days In Summer sounded interesting and I was looking forward to reading it Emily Parker is enjoying time with her three young children and decides to make a quick run top the grocery store That is the last time her children see her, and pretty soon it becomes clear to her husband Will and mother Sarah th [...]

    9. This book had a lot of promise, but fell short of my expectations Where the writing crackles in one scene and it really can be excellent , it fizzles in the next, overwrought and inevitably pointless in terms of plot, that is paragraphs of detail on the young cop s heritage or the elderly mother s past do not help me solve mysteries The mystery element of the book, especially the ending, was unsatisfying for me as I felt the reader was hand fed clues so it was inevitable and still kind of unbeli [...]

    10. This was a mind blowing read Kate Pepper the author captures you from the first page this is a real talent The characters were so well written and believable Emily the mother, her two boys David and Sam and baby daughter Maxi have been holidaying at their gran s a beach house Now it is time to take the kids home as they will be starting school Before she goes she decides to pay a call to the supermarket to stock up the groceries While she is in the supermarket she encounters a strange man who ma [...]

    11. After a lot of thought and trying my best with this one, I admit to defeat and have given up with it.This is just not as gripping as her previous books.I have been reading this for 5 days now and still only 170 pages into it I unfortunately just can t get into it and cannot get the enthusiam to even pick it up to continue reading.It s very unlike me and I hate to give up on a book but I cannot continue reading when I m not enjoying it.The story is extremely slow going for my taste and once the k [...]

    12. Emily Parker and her 3 children are on a holiday at her Mother s place, While Sarah her mum looks after the children, Emily goes to shop to top up her mums cupboards, she buys some corn but a funny man who she calls the corn man is touching all the corns he is behind her at the checkout and put the corn on in lots of.Emily goes to the car park and put all the shopping in the car she talks to her Husband Will on the phone and that the last any one see s of her When she don t come home Will drives [...]

    13. Sometimes I need a week for a book, not only because I don t have enough time to read but also because a story doesn t interest me that much or it is interesting but strenuous to read This one here I read in something like 28 hours so two evenings, a lunch break and even at the breakfast table It was a gripping story, one of the kind where you can easily imagine yourself being the victim That makes it even creepy As the story unfolds we re presented with the viewpoints of different characters b [...]

    14. This is an excellent thriller It s dark, disturbing, pure psychological and suspenseful On a typical summer afternoon, Emily Parker disappears in Cape Cod A madman abducted her We re warped inside her head as a hostage for the next five days and a search start for her We see how her family reacts and panics, when they learn about the serial killer Enter a former FBI profiler, John Geary, and his best friend, Roger Bell to solve the case, while we learn about Emily s family and the people involve [...]

    15. I really wanted to like this book Truly That said reading this book was aggravating I have never just wanted a book to be over before I m never one to simply give up and close the covers prior to reaching the end but it was difficult to hold onto that resolve this time The prologue was promising and had me hooked and anxious to see what was to come I am sad to report that if you enjoy the prologue, do not expect the rest of the book to follow through I had a hard time caring about any of the cha [...]

    16. Great start in the beginning, full of suspense and thrill with the race against time factor However, somewhere in between the plot starts to fall apart losing some of its pace and thrill Characters lack depth, and even the cops and the FBI profiler John Geary could not weave in any magic to keep the suspense elevated in between It could have been a great cop killer chase story, but unfortunately it wasn t Also in between there were some flashbacks of martial art and meditation nonsense happening [...]

    17. This book was not for me, so my review isn t so much about the quality of the book as it is the content Too violent and too disturbing Not really the kind of thing I would choose to read for fun it was a book club selection I prefer my beach reading to be romantic or funny, not gory and shocking.It s a page turner for sure, but there were a lot of parts that gave details that were clearly not relevant to the plot lengthy descriptions of random FBI agents or scenery that I was too impatient to re [...]

    18. Definitely a page turner I m so glad I was recommended this author As a fan of thrillers and super quick reads, like anything by James Patterson, Katia Lief kept me on edge I finished this book in 3 evenings, one in particular that kept me up past 2am Story is solid, ending was an unexpected twist Started reading this in the spring so it made me look forward to the summer, in a bizarre way If you like quick, nail biting reads, this is your book Just be prepared to be up all night trying to finis [...]

    19. A young mother is snatched from the parking lot of a Cape Cod supermarket Police and family have not a single clue as to why or who could have perpetrated the crime Enter a retired FBI agent and a soon to be retired professor author who have a theory that this kidnapping might be part of a serial killer s plan Suspenseful, great setting, a nice beach read, which is just what I was looking for.

    20. After reading the reviews and the prolouge, I figured i d give this book a shot, and I am glad I did For me this book was intense I liked how you get a glimpse into the killers mind You also get a sense of how close this family is and their background, not just on the family, but the main characters throughout the book as well This book is a total page turner, intense, and keeps the readers interest Definitely a book I recommend I look forward to checking out books by this author.

    21. The fourth book in a row by Katia Lief that I have read and I am now disappointed that I have no by her to read What a great thriller Unlike her three previous books surrounding Karin Schaeffer, this one focused on Dr John Geary With an amazing fast paced plot, it was difficult at times to actually take a break from reading and with an unexpected character turning out to be the killer I can say for the fourth time Katia Lief again has not failed

    22. I really enjoyed this book This is the second book I ve read by Katia Lief and I ve loved both of them Quick, exciting reads These are not great works of literature by any means, but they are well writing crime novels that usually keep me up WAY too late at night because I can t wait to find out what happens I d highly recommend them to anyone wanting a good, quick read And many of her books are only.99 for the Nook at Barnes Noble, so you can t go wrong.

    23. I ll admit after reading the first two paragraphs, with the main character held captive pumped full of a muscle inhibitor that paralyzed her but left her fully aware, I put the book down Too afraid to read But luckily for me at least the book doesn t spend a lot of time on what happens to Emily beyond that What unfolds is an excellent book, full of twists and turns and secrets.A good thriller A super fast read Excellent if you are on the beach at the Cape.

    24. Beautifully written, compelling, expertly plotted Lief s ability to get inside her characters heads during an incredibly tense and disturbing case means that her readers have a front row seat through the twists and turns of a mother s abduction by a serial kidnapper killer The characters are well drawn and believable, the pacing is tight, and the plot itself is a nail biter, to say the least Highly recommended to anyone who appreciates a well crafted mystery.

    25. This thrilling novel was full of suspense and twists at every turn Right when you think you have things figured out and the killer pinned, the author throws in a new clue for your mind to grasp The middle was a bit slow, but when the ending comes around, the middle makes sense and it all comes together smoothly This was one of my favorite crime novels I have ever read

    26. another one of my bargain books I enjoyed this story A woman is kidnapped after making a quick trip to the grocery store A retired FBI takes interest in her case, and discovers her captor is a serial killert of the mothers, but of the young sons Fast paced, emotional, roller coaster ride of a book Boy I wasn t expecting the ending Fooled me.

    27. I actually did like this book, but at the same time it was just too disturbing for me Maybe because I have four boys, including a 7 year old son, and it was just too horrible to even imagine If I had known it would be about mothers watching their children be cut apart I would not have read it.

    28. This book had me torn on several occassions to walk away from it I had to keep reading to find out what happened next In the ending chapters, my heart was racing, very anxious, and found myself skipping ahead a few lines because the suspense was overwhelming only to find out my suspected killer was wrong Great book
