I really wanted to rate this 3 ?? stars ??? the book was entertaining but not my all time favorite Roberts books. The story is about smoke jumpers in Missoula. It centers on 1 woman in the group, Rowan Tripp and her relationship with the hot rookie, Gulliver. There are times I found the female characters rather crass but I guess they needed to be since the jumped out of planes to put fires out. Like many of Roberts books .. there is lot of hot romance and some suspense. For me the mystery person was quite obvious.
I thought Rebecca Lowman did a good job narrating the book but at time could not distinguish 1 character from another ??? especially the male characters
This is my first Nora Roberts book and I really like it a lot! The reader was wonderful and you could picture the story as she read it. I am really looking forward to more books. I life is crazy, and I love to work out, but music gets boring, so I listen to books while I work out and this one made the hour fly by!
Totally addicted to Audible.
Most interesting characters - story is good but the main characters leave you wanting to read more about them.
I usually enjoy Nora Robert's books, buy found this one totally boring. It was no more than a Harlequin Romance, set in Montana with the fire jumpers. I expected more action. The story was predictable and I couldn't wait for it to end. I am very sorry that I wasted a credit on this book.
I'm a fairly new fan of Nora Roberts and have tried many of her books. I find that her books that are more suspense driven have enough twists to make them hard to put down. With this book, once I was sure who the culprit was, my mouth fell open when there was an extra twist that took the story in a slightly different direction.
This was a very good listen with a narrator who didn't make me want someone else read it. Even a good story can be ruined with a narrator who doesn't fit in. Rebecca Lowman did a good job and I do appreciate that.
Worth the credit and I will be listening to this one again and again!
I have a busy career, travel a lot and don't have much time to read, so I listen to Audio books. I love reading!
I always enjoy Nora Roberts, but this book was by far the nicest I've listened to. The narrator - Rebecca Lowman was excellent and she really drew you into the story with her accents and sense of the characters. I couldn't wait to put my i pod on and carry on listening and didn't want it to end! I will listen to it again in a while. A really good long haul flight listen and a wonderful road trip listen! Well done to Nora and Rebecca!
This was one of the most boring books that I've ever read. I would never recommend it to anyone, a waste of money.....
Too bad because I really wanted to like it! I've enjoyed lots of Nora Roberts' books (and formula) for the charming relationships and interesting, detailed backgrounds that unfold along with the mystery/thriller aspect - pure fun for chicks! Although this book was long, none of these pieces was very engaging to me.
I have read nearly all of Nora's book and this is a new favorite of mine. The story line of smoke jumpers is captivating by its self so when you add Nora's twist you have another winner. The narrator was pretty good too.
