The book was pretty good. I was looking for a series that could be comparable to the In Death series as I wanted to stay with strong female lead characters. I enjoyed the story but feel like something was missing....like some characters could have been a little more developed. Of course I really couldn't get in to it like I wanted to because I didn't feel the narrator did any of the characters justice.
The voices seemed weak, almost childlike at times and I didn't think it was a good presentation for a strong female character like Sam.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
This book was ok, there are much better out there. Buy this on sale or for once in a blue moon. The narrator was just ok and to me that's 75% of what makes the book. The story line was pretty good and the sex was ok but few and far between. The main characters were likable but the narrator just did not do them justice.
I had not read the print version first but will now go back to read it so that I can better enjoy this book. I believe that the author wrote a significantly stronger book that the one that I heard.
I listened to this book while on vacation and, with better narration, would almost certainly have devoured it in a weekend!
I enjoy listening to Action Adventure books during my daily, (45 + mins) commute to work.
It had murder, mystery, and then a little love story.
Nick, he just sounds like the "perfect catch."
I liked the presentation.
Meant to be.
This wasn't too much into the love affair like some of the later editions. I like listening to solving the murder part better.
I read the description of the plot and thought it sounded promising....but it delivered very little in terms of interesting twists and good cop drama. In fact, I was amused by the very sensitive and elaborate "bodice ripper' scenes that provided the only interesting "thrills" in an otherwise pretty bland narrative. Guess I should have guessed when I saw that Harlequin was the publisher. If you are into steamy scenes and don't care much about the plot line....go for it!
If I wanted a sex novel, I would have gone to the romance section or gone to a porn shop. The sex scenes were over the top and did nothing for the plot or the story line.
Very Interesting book, I never got bored, it kept my interest till the end, I was really surprised at the ending, but not dissapointed. I found the book to be very good..
The story in itself was a worthy example of any murder mystery. It started superbly with a gruesome murder which set the stage for a page turning thriller. Unfortunately the relationship between the detective Sam and her former lover detracted from my enjoyment of the plot. It was so predictable, overdone and nauseating that I couldn't finish the book.
Very disappointing and a waste of my time. Ken
Felicity did an excellent reading. She was clear and the characters were believable/
I would minimize the relationship between Sam and Nick. Perhaps a brief fling and then focus on the plot.
Nick having to tell John's parents that he was dead.
I can take care of myself!
This was my first reading by the author. Great work, great narrating.

Glad to have listen to a book with a female overcoming issues and a good current story line.
