Ms Bean is an excellent audio book actress and perfect for this book's mutiple roles.
This is not your typical Linda Howard book, as I actually got mad at her for making the story line so heart wrenching. However, It is a LH story that I would highly recommend hearing or reading as it shows her incredible range of talent.
I love books, it's my great escape.
Wow, I think this is one of the best romance stories from Linda Howard. I kept telling my self. I will not cry...the reviews are just going over board. Well, I cried and cried. This story is really touching. But it is a romance and its gets steamy. Its very well done. I will listen to this one again.
Used to exclusively read classic literature, but now, w/MS, I listen to gritty, gripping stories to get me through painful, sleepless nights
Only one other time have I written a review of a book I have not finished. I felt that I wanted to let others interested in this book know that it is excrutiatingly slow! I may go back to try and finish it in the future, but I gave it two hours to capture my interest (and I usually enjoy this sort of subject matter) and it never did. I would recommend to keep looking for a different choice before purchasing this book. It reads like a bad Lifetime Channel movie.
I enjoy a good mystery but this was more romance than anything else. The last chapters were all about the heroine's love life with the bad guys caught and dismissed without much fanfare.
I love Linda Howard books and this is one of my favorites. The narration was excellent. For once, even better than reading it myself. I could "see" the characters in my mind so clearly during the reading. The emotions were conveyed so well, I wept.
Other reviewers hype the character development in this story. I'm sorry to say that the character development was rushed and fairly unrealistic for the most part. As was the story itself. The writing seemed uneven.
Sure. She's a fun read and I've enjoyed most of her books in the past. Best one was After the Night.
The narrator seemed to over enunciate every word to the point that she sounded robotic and lacked any emotion. It wasn't until close to the end of the story that she seemed to sound more relaxed and in tune with the story.
To be honest; I thought about skipping the rest of the book. I just wasn't invested in these characters' lives. But I did want to find out if Milla found her lost son so I stuck with it.
This is listed under my husbands name but he never listens to audible books. I'm the one that does and my name is Vicki.
This book will keep you up at night after reading it. Milla Edge has made it her lifes quest to find stolen children after her own was stolen. Have a box of kleenex handy and maybe a bottle of tums while listening to this book.
Having someone bring this to life has been a very moving experience
She is beyond real
She is a true actress
Laugh and cry both
The depth of love this woman has and courage
