This was one of the best books I have listened too. I really enjoyed the guessing game of who done it and did not see the twist coming at the end. If you like murder mysteries listen to this book.
I listen to a lot of books and have never written a review but the narration on this book is so bad I just wanted to warn others that might want to try it. I can't tell who is speaking because of the same monotone voice or the narrator. It might be a great book and my wife loves all of Lisa Gardner's books but this was just too hard to listen.
yes, with another narrator
No inflection or emotion in the reading.... just the same tone throughout
I was so distracted by the narrator that I could not even get into it to determine if it had any other qualities.
Somewhat. I kept listening because I generally like Gardner books. I kept waiting for all the twists and turns I read in the (non-spoiler) reviews, but when they came (and there really weren't that many), they weren't all that exciting. Maybe it was the writing, maybe the narration. Or maybe the lead character just didn't do it for me. The narration was also monotone in a way that detracted from the story overall.
I was actually surprised -- Gardner is very good at misdirection.
More emotion in the general narration. She was somewhat monotone throughout, although there were some emotional scenes that were well done. I just had trouble connecting to her low, monotone voice.
Ok, complaints about first in series, very little Dee-Dee, this book has much more although Bobbie is still "hero". The change in narrator made it go from terrible to listen to to ok. The story DIDN'T have Munchhausen by proxy (as the first two I read did have). BUT I found the story pretty convoluted with just too many coincidences. An ok read, will probably re-read at least once to try to catch more of the coincidences/names, etc.
Great narration, great story & a new side to a known character... Not too shabby!
Very suspenseful book with many twists & turns. I liked most the point where the "villain" of the book discovers what is REALLY happening & goes to do something about it!
Very good representation of her performances.
Yes, when you know Det. Warren is "expecting" & her partner talks about how her squad will react with overwhelming love & support. Also, how Bobby is so protective & caring of her!
THIS WAS A VERY GOOD BOOK. LISA GARDNER IS FAST BECOMING ONE OF MY FAVORITE AUTHORS. KEPT INTEREST TO THE END AND WANTED MORE.
I love to read, but I can never find the time. Audible allows me to "read" while I'm doing other things.
I just love a book that you cant put down. This book kept me guessing and I couldn't wait to find out who was after AnaBell.
Really enjoyed the story and narration. The butler did it .... no crazy person did it ... but it was like another case 20 years ago.. It was fun being out-foxed!
Lisa Gardner is WOW! AWESOME! RIVETING from page 1 to the last page!! I had a hard time putting this book down. I loved how Lisa grabbed my interest and kept it "high" till the end! I loved her writing, how she went through each chapter, how she tied up the loose ends towards the end! Here is an author who does a fantastic job of writing! I will be looking for her books and getting them. Her narrator also was super great!! I hope Lisa hangs onto her - she is awesome and wonderful!!!
Had me guessing right till the end! Some of her others, I could sort of figure them out - this one, I was f**ing shocked!!!! Had no clue!!!! AMAZING!!! Great read! well. listen! Great narration! SO GOOD!! Messed up! I don't know what goes through Lisa Gardner's head, but this book was really really good, and I had no idea of the ending, I was totally caught off guard! Awesome!
