I have not read the print version
Plot was good
Not listened before
Book was a bit romancey for me, but still enough mystery for me!
Exciting, riveting, good performance
The story itself was well written and continued to surprise me.
A family full of secrets
I really enjoyed this book. It is wonderfully suspenseful and never predictable.
I can't say with out ruining the book for others.
I will read other Karen Robards books.
I don't like romance novels, and that's what this is, even though it's billed as a thriller. If romance rather than whodunnits are your guilty pleasure, you might like it.
She is always a good narrator - you never are disappointed in her
the moment they found the skeleton.
this is a very good listen - it has one of them twisted endings that I was not exactly expecting.
I would give this a qualified recommendation to a friend. I enjoyed the story and was hooked into the mystery, but grew tired of the whole 'scott disliking (supposedly) lisa' part of the book.
I generally like unabridged books because I don't want to miss any part of the author's words, but during this book I started thinking "abridged books have a purpose." Just like adapting a book for stage or a movie, some editing for an audiobook can be a good thing. In short, It could have been shorter and been just as (or more) enjoyable.
Her voice felt a little stiff and stilted. I think the pacing of the editing added to the stiffness.
I could definitely see this as a movie or TV series. Someone who can do a believable southern accent. Not sure who in the current crop of 'stars,' but Matthew McConaughey as Scott, Sandra Bullock as Lisa, though I don't think they're young enough.
Book is a bit interesting as far the the outline of story goes. It is the amount of needless narrative and the overstatement of the obvious that wears on the listener. This was my first and will be my last Karen Robards novel, until she progresses significantly in her craft as a novelist.
It's books like this one that make me reevaluate my career and perhaps take a stab at writing. (I think I could produce a better novel than this one.) The plot was borderline ridiculous, the dialog was so basic that I could see it coming, and I lost interest about halfway through. Plus, the narrator spoke with such perfect enunciation that the book was very sterile and flat to listen to. Really, don't waste the credit.
The plot was interesting enough to keep me engaged, but the writing style is somewhat simple and a bit trite. However, the primary downfall of this audio book is that the narrator sounds like a 45 year old uptight school teacher (which is fine) but it doesn't match the main character's persona as a 29 year old attorney with a lot of spunk and sex appeal. The romance element of this novel is completely subdued by this narrator issue.
