I am a longtime fan of Elizabeth Lowell - she writes great suspense and this one is no exception. My only disappointment is that she has really gone more toward straight suspense and romance is definitely way down the list in her plots. While I enjoyed the story - the relationship between Mac and Emma was tepid at best and not believable. I miss the intensity Lowell captured in her earlier books - such as the Donovan series. The dynamics between family and lovers, etc. That is definitely not the case in her current books...the book is good though - if you want straight suspense with a romantic plot as an afterthought.
This is one of my favorite Linda Howard titles...I had bought the abridged edition and hated it. Because I had read the whole book - the edited version ruined the storyline. SO glad Audible provided the WHOLE book!!! Yeah.
As for the story, it is very interesting with a paranormal twist and great plot. I very much liked Sweeney and Richard. No games - both very straight-forward. Excellent listen on this one.
This is by far the best Romantic Suspense I have listened to in a long time! Not since Linda Howard's MacKenzies or Elizabeth Lowell's Donavan series have I enjoyed a book so much! Love, love, love the new series. Hope that Audible gets more of this series....
