I am quickly becoming a fan of Nora Roberts. Black Hills seemed to start a little slow, and there was too much background, which can be great except it just went on and on. But the story was great enough that it didn't matter. I was more than willing to listen and go forth because I was so in to the characters.
New York meets the country life in a big way as a child, but as years pass he can't shake the country or the people instilled from that life. They are now the biggest part of him as he has grown into a man and moves back when his g-dad has a heart attack to help out. So begins the real life, rekindled love/hate/hurt relationship, and adventure with a serial killer in-tow.
The narrator could have picked up the pace a bit, but he wasn't bad. At times when there is some excitement, let's hear the excitement...know what I mean? Other than that fantastic book.
This is a wonderful book. I really enjoyed the storyline as I do most of Nora's stories. The narrator was excellent. I wish he read all the audiobooks I listen to. None of his characters were over the top. His men sounded like men & the women didn't sound like drag queens like some male narrators' women voices do. I really enjoyed everything about this book.
I am a miracle worker. Doing what I can to choose love over fear.
None: It had a solid childhood story, great romance and the thrill of a great mystery. Not one boring minute!
Deep characters from different parts of the U.S. the author gives the story a body, Podehl gives it a unique soul.
When a specific animal died.
If you love thrillers this is credit proof, and yes I am talking about Nora Roberts. An author I thought only wrote books for the bored housewife. I bought this because I love the narrator. So I was shocked to be blown away! I almost gave the story five stars which says a lot.
Everything, it kept me on the edge of my seat!
I have never listened to him, but he was awesome!
I would have tried, but I love being able to stop and go back when ever I wanted!
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
This was a wonderful story, one of Nora's best. Very enjoyable. Would of made a awesome series of books if continued. Many thanks Nora. :)
Yes, as I enjoy having soomething interesting to listen to when driving
Enjoyed the subject matter, animals, wilderness and mysteries
The suspense and action in the story, coupled with a nice romantic plot.
Similar to other Nora Roberts stories -- which is what I like about it.
The author's excellent development of the back story regarding the animals and their care was interesting and very compelling. Mix that with the great mystery and excitement, plus the romance, and I couldn't resist listening to it whenever possible. The narrator did a great job developing the characters.
Considering that I have a reading disorder, the Audible compamy has quenched a great day of time with Audible as my greatest personal fre
I had no idea that this is a "Romance Section" book. I can not review it due to the intrinsic adversion to Chick Flicks. Not only the above mentioned but the reality vs fiction gap in the book is too far to jump for me. the books ending and 90% of the storyline is predictable and obvious. Other than that I liked it.I am certain that Nora Roberts is a great Romance Novelist' but I did not fully realize the Soap Opra I was purchasing and ; due to my nature' forced to finish. At least now I can say I read a Romance Novel. 3 stars for the cover picture and the misrepresentation of it's content.
Great story and the reader really enhances the story with his voices. Sweet love story with a thriller timeline.
