As a mystery fan, I was a bit disappointed by this one. I'd guessed the whodunnits by about halfway through. And, I gotta say, there were a lot of romance elements - they're not my cup of tea and I wasn't expecting the, ummmmm, very sexy descriptions of SEVERAL carnal encounters. I found it kinda cliched too - and confess to a few laugh-out-loud moments (and not in a good way.)
Definitely fun and pretty good escapism. But for my money, 'Chill Factor' isn't a great mystery book in any sense.
I have enjoyed Sandra Brown's books for some time. She keeps getting better and better. I couldn't put this one down for long. It kept me guessing until the end. And the ending was terrific.
If you like a mystery that keeps you guessing and guarantees surprises, read/listen to this book! Sandra Brown at her finest with another multi-layered plot including unpredictably complex characters. Although this story takes place over a period of just a few days, it delivers like an epic.
I found myself changing allegiances among characters over and over as bits and pieces of the puzzle were revealed. In this story, it's just as tough to identify the good guys as it is to peg the bad guys. You gotta love it!
Wow, this was my first book by this author. After, 250+ Audible books, this was a breath of fresh mountain air. Very inovative plot line, and well thought out characters. Nice plot twists and fantastic ending. Narration was even well done. A definite must read for any mystery/suspense/who-done-it readers. Enjoy!! I will definitely purchase more from Sandra.
This was my first, and last, experience with Sandra Brown. Every character is a cliche' and the main plot and subplots are all over-the-top. I'm not finished yet, but I fully expect to hear the words "heaving bosom" at some point very soon. The narrator, too, is grating on my last nerve. I can't say it any better than an earlier reviewer did...he makes all the male voices sound like Forrest Gump. Thanks for that, btw...as I finish the book I'm going to think of 'Jenny' every time he says Lily!!
This book was fantastic! This and Envy are my favorite of Sandra Brown's. I would love to here more like these two stories. She really writes a good mystery/suspense, we want more!
I have been a fan of Sandra Brown for a long time. I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Worth the read. The narrator is good. I've known some people with Dutch's mentality - he sounded believable to me!
Sandra Brown always comes through with a suspenceful story that is easy to listen to and follow. The narrator was a little off on switching voices but all and all a good listen. You won't be disappointed if you enjoy suspence and romance.
Like someone else said, if you loved ENVY you will love Chill Factor. Almost as good, and the romance is hot.
I couldn't put it down.
