I loved the interaction between Nick & Sam. Marie does an excellent job of bringing the reader into their lives.
I am reading the entire series - I am currently on book three
Yes she is an excellent narrator
The book is a love story - mystery - crime novel all in one. I think my favorite part was the interactions between Nick & Sam.
Never saw the print version.
Perhaps a Nora Roberts novel.
When Nick and Sam first met.
It is hard to say.
For some reason, I couldn't fully get into the romance or the mystery of this book. The romance part seemed a little too perfect, and not as steamy as I would like. And the mystery part was too predictable...I hate when I figure it out before the detective. And I agree with other reviewers that it was hard to believe that everyone would be so willing to accept their relationship. It wasn't a terrible story, it was just missing something for me. The narrator did fine for the most part, but sometimes it was hard to tell who was talking. I don't plan on listening to any more of this series.
Wrong narrator for story. It sounds like a kids book because the narrator sounds like a kid. If the main character thought about her old one time fling once more I thought I would go crazy. I wanted to focus on the story line but couldn't because of both of these faults.
It is written in a child like way.
Too bad it wasn't a different narrator and main character wasn't so wrapped up about Nick.
Ummmm-kaaaay. I have read the entire J.D. Robb In Death Series twice. I was looking for something similar to keep me occupied while waiting for some new ones to come out. . .this is not it. It is just a rip-off. The lead investigator sleeping with the prime suspect...amazingly the same thing that happens in Robb's first in death book, Naked in death. A dead senator in fatal affair, and a guilty and dead senator in Naked in Death. I'm surprised Marie Force didn't get sued for writing this. If you've read Naked in Death, all you'll be able to do is shake your head at the 'similarities' that just suck. I couldn't even get through the whole book because it was just screaming "Plagiarism" to me. Sam is 'tough' but doughy on the inside, she can't keep her emotions in check, she's always second guessing herself. Not what I'm looking for in a strong female lead. Perhaps if I had read this before In Death, maybe it wouldn't be so bad. But to me, this is just a knock off. If you're going to choose between Marie Force and J.D. Robb...Go with J.D. Robb. Those are books that are absolutely worth the read. Oh. The narrator was fine.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
I own hundreds to be listened to and could not afford to waste any more of my listening time
This had a good summery and even has more stories for a series, ie j.d. Robb. However, turned off by this reader!
This reader Ruined a good story! Gads, doesn't the production engineer review after First 30 min? This reader must have walked into the recording studio without ever reviewing the book at all. Her voice was so sqweekey she made our hero so dull! Why would I even bother to review the rest of the series?
Unfortunately, I did not listen to this book when I first purchased, and now suck with a book I had to stop listening to after 40 mins into story.
The narrator's voice breathed life into a bunch of somewhat flat characters. She gave them such emotional range and personality that they were interesting.
No. I did not realize that the genre of this book is erotic crime fiction Everyone was so aroused by so many of the other characters that I felt it detracted from the main plot. The plot was not all that densely woven and the big reveal at the end felt forced. It was hard to suspend disbelief.
Munroe went beyond the text to give the characters more depth than the author did. She must be a gifted actress. There's a lot of dialogue in this book, and Munroe made it feel like you were listening to a radio play.
An erotic thriller with all the traditional roles and body parts.
I believe the first book was offered in one of the discount campaigns and it's been sitting in my library for months. I love episodic cozy mysteries and this one was perfect. The Washington, DC backdrop, smart characters with interesting careers and the family relations made it very interesting, the suspenseful murders and sizzling (but not too explicit) romance made the rest of the series a must to purchase.
No, this one was so boring that I feel it would be a waste of time not to mention credit.
I have a few books on my wish list, maybe "Target" by Baldacci
Dull; Toneless; Sedative
Not for me. I'm sure it had some good moments but they were lost in the overall story.
I should have known I was not going to like this book when it opened with "by brilliance audio and harlequin". Too much romance, not enough drama. I couldn't get past the first couple of chapters. It did not mention anything about this when I read the review before buying.
