Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.
I enjoy this series so much. Susan Ericksen puts you into Robb's story. You can see each character and get to know them. The details of the stories makes you want to be there to watch up close.
It is a perfect package.
I love the entire series by JD Robb.
I particularly like this one as it brings a bit more of Roarke's past into the picture.
The character continuity within the series, the complexity of the plot, and the exciting action.
The action and climax around the end of the story.
Roarke, his Irish brogue....I'm slowly getting to appreciate her performance of McNabb, too.
Yes. It was exciting and enjoyable.
I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.
If you've been a Robb fan of this series, this audio book will not disappoint you. All the characters are well developed and of course... Lt. Dallas get's the job done. You see another side of her that is refreshing in law enforcement.
I enjoy this story. I love J.D. Robb and all the books about Dallas, Peabody, Roarke, etc. Maybe I already know the charcters too well in my own mind, because hearing them in the audio version just rubbed me the wrong way. The way Peabody is voiced makes her sound (to my ears) lacking in IQ and the voice of Feeney makes him sound like a boorish non-caring cop (which is not at all his personality that I've come to know). Again, maybe it's me and the story is still great. I don't know that I want to listen to any more of the Robb books on audio, though.
I couldn't even finish listening to this drivel. Initially it seemed to be a good story despite the frequent forays into "romance novel" prose but that just became unbearable. The lead characters were stopping mid-investigation to "get it on" with poorly written descriptions of both their anatomies. The majority of the so-called sex scenes were pointless and had no reason for their existance. Eventually I just didn't care anymore how the mystery was resolved. I just couldn't listen to it anymore. I have listened to other JD Robb books and while I sometimes felt she went overboard on the romantic descriptions, they generally were appropriate to the plot. Not so in this one. I won't be wasting my credits on any more.
This book is like cheap ice cream in the fridge. It's the only thing there. Too late, or too tiresome to get something else.
Trivial, pointless, good trap of characters designed to ensnare romantic women into listening or reading through a plane ride. The kind of book where you leave the book in the pocket in front of you, or some other suitable place, thankful for the diversion, disappointed that nothing was learned other than to not read/listen to another in series unless desperate, or totally depressed and don't want to think.
