this book kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time, it gripped me from the very beginning. I just finished and want to start it all over again..
it's a must read
Too wordy, unnecessarily long descriptions.....and too many of them.
No...mystery was good... but "romance/sex" was unnecessary.
"let's get on with the mystery part"
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
if you are a long time fan of author, and I am, then you will appreciate another one of her good books.
Karen's, One Summer and Paradise County are in par with this story. This book and the afore mentioned are romances with a mystery. Good entertainment
Ms Susan is an excellent reader, see her J.D.Robb series, excellent. Her Irish accent is yummy. However, she did not do her full range of voices in this one. A disappointment as she did not deepen her male voices in this one as she has in other books. She may have had so many recordings when she did this book, that she may not have had it in her to do all her deeper male voice ranges. Her young voices are great in this one so that wasn't a disappointment. She just didn't deliver on our hero Scott.
When all the truth comes out...get a hankie
the ending should have been better. the book was open with young marissa, so you feel instantly connected to her. it was a bit disappointing at the end to not know much about her..don't want say much..but yeah. too much time spent on lisa's dynamic with her family and personal life, not much time on the actual mystery suspense of the book. overall though it was nice and I couldn't figure out the mystery so it kept me interested. the narrator was great!
I struggled to finish this book, it was a very predictable storyand many parts way too descriptive. The sex scenes went on too long and the narrator made them sound more like a play by play game than an intimate moment. I found the narrator very hard to listen to and didn't think she portrayed the characters very real.
The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is that I found the 'mystery' predictable. However, I would happily listen to it again and I'm looking forward to other books by Karen Robards. I always enjoy Susan Erickson's narration.
This story kept us riveted as it took its twists and turns. We were constantly trying to guess the roles each character played in the mystery and the author proved us wrong every time.
Great story, nicely performed. Highly recommended by husband and wife listening team.
