The story was a little predictable, But it was the kind of fast food for the mind I was looking for... Nick did a great job...I liked the pace and timbre of his read.
Farley, just cuz he was sooo dang cute!
I liked the comfortable timbre and pace with with he read...it was very soothing
no not really, just smile and wince
I Like Nora Roberts book's but found this one to be very boring, I couldn't wait until it ended, not action, not a very good plot, I would not recommend it to someone who like's action or thriller's, maybe a family book. Sorry
Reminds me of something I would have read in Junior High.
It was just boring. Drawn out boring and predictable. The first couple of chapters I kept rewinding because the time line changed and I thought that I missed a chapter. Went from teenagers to adults with no warning. There were times I would just tune out and catch myself, but didn't feel the need to rewind because it wasn't that interesting. I love a 20-30 hour book, if it is interesting.
Sometimes sounded whiny.
I'm glad I only spent $5 for it. I love the sales, and I figure the really great ones I've purchased make up for the lame listens.
I think I am done with Nora Roberts.
She is more of a borrow from the library and return author.
I could relate to Cooper and Lil's upbringing and if I had read this book 40 years ago I would have fallen in love with reading. But at the age of 60, this book is predictable with little suspense. I would highly recommend this book for young adults. Lil is a strong smart role model for women and Cooper an honorable young man.
I have to admit this is my first Nora Roberts book so if this is typical, then I will probably pass on her other books.
I am a Company Rep in Central Qld. I travel around 60,000klms a year and rely on my Audiobooks to keep me company on my Country Trips!
I probably started to feel uneasy about this tale right from the start.
I found the jumps forward in time gave the start a somewhat disjointed feel.
The story didn't seem to flow for me and although it did become more interesting as it went on, the ending was highly predictable.
Altogether, I found this a let down after the cracking tale that was The Witness.
I am starting Whiskey Beach now, so that may help balance out these two very different experiences with Nora Roberts'work. I was quite happy with the narrator however!
exciting, mysterious, thrilling
every part with the cougars.....
best one yet.
she trusts the cougar, but can she trust him?....
Yes, I enjoyed the book very much and I know the area.
Yes it did, I didn't know if a big cat would attack other times in the book.
Mid range, easy on the brain but characters and dialogue fun.
My favorite Roberts' "mystery" so far b/c of characters and setting.
This is the third book of Robert's that I have listened to thus far and I am falling head over heels in love with this author and her work. The stories she writes continue to amaze, inspire, enthrall, captivate and every other possible word out there. I have added many of her other books to my wish list and look forward to listening to those as well when money and or credits permit the purchase of them.
I do notice though, this being the third book of hers that I've listened to, that of these three, all of them have very strong male and female characters coming together. Which is nice, it gives the reader/listener, something to dream about and hope for.
Though I can't help but wonder, what if one of her main characters was weak. Not necessarily in physical strength, but otherwise. Perhaps someone who is indecisive, more introverted, or even a bit of a recluse. What kind of story would that make? And what about a different twist to the plot. Instead of the male 'saving' the female, what if it were the other way around? Or what if the male was the weaker of the two and the female the 'heroine' of sorts? Perhaps though, this is not the way that Roberts writes. I do not know, though it is interesting to ponder.
Regardless, I highly recommend this book and others of hers. I intend to listen to more of her books in the future. The classic tale she tells and spins out in a variety of ways, does not get old and will forever remain a classic in the heart of all women.
