I do like her books sometimes, but this one is poorly done and she uses the F word why?It just doesn't work.
She was good.
Greater Seattle area real estate broker that loves to read...or listen.
As always, Nora Roberts writes a fab story, but I especially loved this being from the San Juan Islands, Washington State myself, and being a dog owner.
The dog training tips she reminds us of, and as usual, and interesting story line.
She made a great Fiona voice.

This is a cutsie story, but very predictable. I have an interest in canine search and rescue, so I did find the dog training portions interesting. I had a hard time distinguishing between the narrator's female voices and often had to rewind to figure out who was supposed to be talking.
not a great listen. The characters and plot were rather... formula. But, I tend to like the formula, so it is ok with me. I did learn a lot about training dogs.. maybe Nora is training me as a listener? Anyway, it was a good, happily ever after. The suspense was rather predictable in this story, but I would recommend it to someone that just wants to escape life for a while and not think too hard. Worth the credit if this is the genre you like.
I have read quite a few of Nora Roberts' books and seen some of the TV movies made from her books but will never again buy an audio book by her. If I had wanted a dog training book that is what I would buy. I found the narrator insipid. The love scenes particular boring and drawn out. I finished it purely because I bought it!!!
I thought I was buying Nora Ephron. Well, oops. Nora Roberts writes current day bodice rippers. My friend's mother, in a retirement home, reads every book and gives the sex a rating. Funny. Not a bad past-time but not much more than that. One day, this kind of book will be written by a machine.
gripping, life-affirming, relatable
Fiona... because of the dogs.
the last chapter... I don't want to spoil it.
I cried and at points laughed and the whole thing felt like it had happened to me. I was not expecting to like it this much.
This is a great book but it's one that you really don't want to put down so it's great for a beach trip or if you have time to listen without stopping much. I read a lot of crime dramas but mostly military & police main characters. A female main character was new to me and I was leery of her. But the whole story & performance was so great. I truly enjoyed it and still find myself thinking about it at times as if it were a real story and then in a millisecond remember that it was just a book. lol.
With the audio version of The Search I can enjoy on my commute or while working on my computer.
This was the second of Nora Robert's novel that I listened to and enjoyed The Search as much as I did The Witness!!!
Tanya Eby's performance added to the enjoyment of Nora's humor and mystery. Her timing added to the main character's wit and charm. I have seen some bad reviews for Tanya on this site but I don't understand it. She added so much to this story as well as others that I have listened to from her.
I could not stop listening until I go to the end of this novel.
Very well read, the narrator was very good. The story had potential but never really was told. It was like 60% sex, 30% dog training and 10% suspense. The profanity was way over used and made the male character an ass in my mind.
