I would have given this 5 stars, but I had trouble with the heroine's thought processes. Her basic character is smart, strong and fearless, but then she crumbles into a dithering idiot. I felt like there should have been more information given to make such a leap in personality. All the characters have issues, but Jo-Ellen's is too extreme in her self-esteem.
Gotten a better story
Nora Roberts is a good author and I will purchase others she's written.
I loved this book. I was never exactly sure how it was going to turn out and it continued to keep me wanting for more. I am sad that it is done. I need to find another Nora Roberts soon...
I don't dislike Sandra Burr, but she is also not my first pick a narrator. Then again narration is in the ear of the listener. I have read numerous complaints about Tanya Eby but I find her a delight to listen to. As far as the story goes it was good and I liked the characters, but it was predictable. That being said I will most likely listen to it again some rainy afternoon where I don't want to concentrate to hard.
Another good one by Nora Roberts, Keep's your interest till the very end. I would recommend it to my friend's.
