I passed this up on my list several times even though I usually like Tess Gerritsen's books. The review didn't depict the book's story very well. This is a really interesting story with believable characters that I recognized as characters in one of my favorite tv series.
I couldn't put this down waiting for the next event to happen.
I thought the narrator did a great job of depicting each character with differing voices.
Definitely found myself looking for things to do so I could plug in and listen while I worked. Great way to get the house cleaned, laundry done, clothes all folded and put away while enjoying a great
Warning, you may find yourself searching for some true stories on polygamous cults after reading this. Audible has several good ones that are real eye openers. Thanks Audible for providing us with such interesting listening.
Maura is supposed to be this intelligent, strong character and yet in this book she is wishy washy and weak. The buildup of characters in the beginning of the book and then just to have them dropped and not really mentioned or thought about later was confusing.
The plot involving the cult was lame and unfufilling in the end. The ending itself was a huge let down. Everything was just left hanging or cut off abruptly. I will think twice before getting another book involving these characters.
Save yourself the let down, find another book.
Love a great book that stays with you long after you've finished it.
The way the narrator uses tone and expression is terrible in this reading. No one I have ever heard in life or drama ever speaks in the over emphasized manner in which Tanya Eby interprets. The story itself is an interesting one but get the book.
In every book, there is a little vacation'
This book really lacked a cohesive plot. The unavailable priest who was the tortured but unavailable love interest of the doctor was such a dramatic part of the story at the start that I wondered why his character just disappeared. There was a lot of driving around in bad weather, mountain lore, and 'chick-lit' jealousy between women -- but the storyline itself did not really have a 'hook'. I would recommend this book as a mild distraction, but not as a riveting listen.
I enjoyeds the story and was interested in finding out what happens next, but the narratation was just awful. If the story had not peaked my interest, I would have stopped listening.
I had never read this author before and wanted to like it. Unfortunately I did not. I found the story uninteresting with no depth. I listened to it all the way through and thought it was written at a teenage level. It was definitely not literature. I know I'm not in the majority, but I thought it was a waste of time.
Used to read classic lit for pleasure of well-written prose. Now, with MS, it's thrillers, courtroom/police dramas, and adventure to escape!
Apart from a small part of the plot at the end that was a little too similar of some current events, I found this story very engaging, original, and very well written. I liked the narrator... not sure what bothered others about her, but I thought she did a very good job. It was suspenseful, and really held my attention. Couldn't wait to get back to it each time! Good suspense novel without being grisly. I would recommend it.
Following the trail of Iles/Rizzoli once again - a slightly different type this time around. Gerritsen keeps you guessing what's around the corner and makes it hard to use the off button on the player. Being a great fan I loved the book, not so much the narrator.
