I selected the book because the plotline interested me. Unfortunately, at least half of the book read like a romance novel. Putting that aside, I like a book who's ending is not exposed too soon. The end of this book surprised me. The plot, though too thin, succeeded.
What might have been an interesting story was spoiled by the authors obsession with the fashion worn by her characters and interior design of the houses. I'd read Vogue if I want to learn how to dress.
The narration was annoying, but that was probably caused by the convoluted prose that anyone would find hard to read.
All in all an irritating book. I gave up listening after chapter 6. I just couldn't stand it anymore.
Is it just me?
I thought it wasn't gonna be predictable but I predicted that part all wrong.
The story was ok. Boy and girl are attracted but fight. Boy and girl have crazy good sex. Boy saves girl repeatedly. Boy saves girl final time and mystery resolved in a very Scooby Doo fashion. Those meddling kids!
Meh. Double meh.
Reading has always been my #1 hobby, even as a child. But becoming an adult meant I didn't have time to read. Then I discovered Audible!
I thought it would be a great plot, however, it just drug on and on with boy loves girl but won't tell her and girl loves boy but stays angry at him. Not my kind of mystery.
it was decent, mind candy, if the emphasis had been on ROMANTIC mystery.... but I didn't expect that genre, and I found it offputting.
The plot was more predictable than I like in a mystery, though really, fine for a romance novel. It's a decent crossing of the two genres, and totally has it's place, it was just miscategorized for me.
I enjoyed the book, story line was great. For once I wasn't able to figure out the who done it. But the book didn't need the sex scenes. Is why I only gave it a 4 star. I would rather have the book kept clean so I don't have to fast forward through scenes.
I really enjoyed the story. It was fun to imagine the grand southern Kentucky home, the handsome gentlemen and spoiled trust-fund ladies. It wasn't the best book I've ever listened to, (or read) but still very entertaining!
It might have been better if it was advertised as Romance rather than Mystery. The mystery part might have filled 20 pages. The rest was the typical, boy secretly loves girl, girl secretly loves boy and they both pretend to dislike the other...until they don't. It might have been more tolerable if it was about half the length. Much of the book was spent saying the same thing over and over, mainly about the feelings the main characters had for each other.
All of them.
Very redundant, corny, sappy dialogue. The only reason I finished it was because I had nothing else to listen to on a long car ride. I fast forwarded through some if it. Contrary to what others have said, I thought the narrator made it worse with her overly dramatic portrayal. If you are looking for a mystery, skip this one. If you like sappy romances, you will probably like it.
Love all of this narrators books so far, she does a fantastic job giving them life!
The sex scenes were too long but that was the only real negative of this book. Don't mind a little spice in books but they can run long sometimes, this book the spice ran long.
Several twists in this book, made up for the too long sex scene. Glad I had headphones on for those, it would have been embarrassing to have anyone know I listened to them...doubled the speed to get through that part.
The ending was nice, have to love a surprise!
