Product Description


Now You See Her keeps the reader guessing by delivering a satisfying and unpredictable plot. Above all, though, Now You See Her is about the strong bond between mothers and daughters, bonds that even death cannot destroy.”
—Winnipeg Free Press
"An exciting book. . . . [Fielding] develops the psychological uncertainty slowly, carefully and subtly." 
—The Globe and Mail
"Marcy is one appealing character. Blunt, grief-stricken, and, finally, sick and tired of acting the good girl, she gives vent to her emotions and comes into her own."

"Fielding succeeds in creating a winning heroine."
—Publishers Weekly

By Luanne Ollivier #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on March 2 2011
Format: Hardcover
In Joy Fielding's latest novel Now You See Her, we meet 50 year old Marcy Taggart as she's on a tour bus in Ireland. This trip was supposed to have been a 25th anniversary trip with her husband Peter. However, their marriage fell apart after their daughter Devon died. Marcy has never accepted that her bipolar daughter committed suicide - her body was never found. Peter has left her for another woman and divorce proceedings are underway. Marcy has taken the trip anyway - why not?

While sitting in a pub, looking out the window after the tour, Marcy is stunned - she is sure she has seen Devon walking by. But as she races into the street, the girl has disappeared. Could it be true - could Devon still be alive? Maybe she faked her own death? Marcy is determined to track her down. New acquaintances such as the local bartender and another passenger from the bus tour are eager to help Marcy with her search. Too eager?

Fielding does an admirable job with Marcy's character, weaving the spectre of mental illness, grief and anguish into her storyline with thought and consideration.

Many red herrings and plot twists keep the story moving along very quickly. Although Marcy may be blinded by her desperation, I did question some of the decisions and choices she makes - some of them were downright dangerous. But this added to the question - is Marcy of sound mind herself?

An engaging read that will keep you turning pages to see if Devon is alive or not.

Fans of Mary Higgins Clark and Iris Johansen would enjoy Joy Fielding.

Joy Fieldings last offering is a quick read, but fairly predictable. While it moves along quickly, I was disappointed with Fieldings use of the main character Marcy and her constant questions and amateur detective work. It kind of got on my nerves. Actually many of the characters got on my nerves. Certainly not one of my favourite books.

You can also read my review here: [...]

What would you do if your daughter was suspected of committing suicide but her body was never found? Would you believe that she was dead? Would you be able to rest and be at peace? These are all the questions that the book, Now You See Her by Joy Fielding, bring up.

When it came to the turmoil that Marcy was going through, after not only the death of her daughter, but her quarter-of-a-decade marriage ends, Joy Fielding's descriptions were bang on. I felt the pain and the saddness as if it were me. It made me wonder how far I would go to find my lost child.

While it was a book that left me hanging and wanting more at the end of each chapter, I found that it dragged... a lot. I don't think the story spans much more than a week (or at least it feels that way), it felt like I was re-reading the same thing over again each and every day... very reminiscent of the movie Groundhog Day. The relationships that Marcy makes while on her journey seem strange... how you can become so intimately involved with TWO different men so quickly just doesn't seem believable.

The ending of the story, as with all mystery novels, brings the whole story together and I am sad to say that I had figured this one out at the mid-way part of the book. Even though I did waver on the ending a few times, I did indeed have it right.

Overall, Now You See Her is a good, fast read and I would say that if you enjoy a mystery novel with a lot of suspense, this one will not disappoint.

Book started off well but there was too much description of Ireland sites which if I wanted a travel brochure I would have bought one! There was also far too much of an unbelievable storyline, and the main character seem to fall into bed at the drop of a hat. She went from one crazy moment to another with no plausible believability! I have read a few other books by Joy Fielding and found them a little more credible and a lot more believable! Kiss Mommy Goodbye was an okay book. Life Penalty was pretty good as well except towards the end it got less credible.

HASH(0xa2cd7f00) out of 5 stars Not what I would expect from Joy Fielding Aug. 12 2011
By Katerina Wirth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This was a very tedious read - and I admit I had to skim the middle of it because it was getting ridiculous and very confusing. The author jumped from one topic to another, kept mixing thoughts with dialog, past with present, and the whole story was far fetched.

The constant lecturing about Ireland, the constant descriptions of RAIN, the ridiculous clumsiness and naiveté of the main protagonist. It was hard to believe the heroine was supposed to be in the 50s (i.e. mature and wise).

The whole ending was like from a bad movie, thrown together and sloppily written.

Joy Fielding's earlier books were always amazing, so this was a huge disappointment. It read like something out of a college writing class.

HASH(0xa2cd7f54) out of 5 stars A Mesmerizing Mystery Feb. 23 2011
By Roberta M. Austin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Marcy Taggart has been hit with an emotional wallop, but she has not fallen. First her daughter was killed in a canoeing accident two years ago. The body was never found, so Marcy has never truly accepted her daughter's death. Her husband has moved on and left her for another woman. At fifty, Marcy is taking a tour of Ireland that was meant to be a twenty-fifth wedding anniversary trip. During a break at a pub, Marcy thinks she sees her daughter Devon walk past. Could her daughter still be alive and hiding out in Ireland to make a new start?

Marcy sets out on a journey to find her daughter and along the way meets others who either seem too eager to help her or want to hide vital information. It is hard to know who to trust and where the truth lies.

As a long time fan of Joy Fielding, I was thrilled to get an early copy of NOW YOU SEE HER to read and review. As a mature woman myself, it was refreshing to have a heroine who had been through life's trials. Ms. Fielding has crafted a mesmerizing novel with touches of melancholy and madness, but ultimately an ode to women who overcome adversity.

The Irish setting gave an extra dimension to the tale and the vivid descriptions made me feel I was right in the middle of the landscapes.

If you have never read Joy Fielding's books before, you need to start with this one and work your way through her back list.

HASH(0xa2af63a8) out of 5 stars Not what I expected March 16 2011
By Elaine Tobias - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have read most of Joy Fielding's and enjoyed them, this one was just, blah. Marcy, the main character comes across as just plain dumb and you don't really care what happens to her. Her other characters are undeveloped and flat and you don't care about them either. Big disappointment!

HASH(0xa2af6390) out of 5 stars Buy a tour book of Ireland instead... Aug. 10 2011
By Avid Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Joy Fielding was one of my favorite authors, but with her last few novels she's just phoning it in. I wanted to love this book, but while reading it I could almost hear her telling herself, "The publisher needs 300 pages; I can add at least 30 by talking about Irish tourist attractions. Oh, and I'll disguise it as a cab driver, or tour bus driver, or some other unnecessary character and the readers won't notice." She also took simple conversations and dragged them out so that I found myself just skimming the pages to get to something even remotely interesting. It was almost insulting, really. As other reviewers have noted, the main character is just plain stupid and gets into situations my six-year-old niece would not. It was predictable and not that entertaining. Joy, you can do so much better! Go back and re-read your first five novels, then try again!

HASH(0xa2af6750) out of 5 stars disappointing March 30 2011
By book lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have read all of Joy Fielding's books, and while some were better than others, they were all very good. I was really looking forward to her latest. What a disappointment. Marcy is an idiot and the whole set up with the two "strangers" both of whom she becomes somewhat involved with, is forced. The ending is over the top (and not in a good way). Joy clearly spent time in Ireland because much of the book reads like a tour book of history and sights. Best advice - skip this one.
