I like to read/listen on my way to and from work...it keeps me OFF my phone and FOCUSED on driving!! ;)
The story was good and I would recommend it to other Nora Roberts fans or anyone else for that matter. The only thing that I didn't like was that there was so much about fighting fire. I mean, I know it was what they did but it was just one fire too many in my opinion. The other recommendation is that there was a little Mystery in the story but there really was not enough background on any of the other characters to really have a reason to suspect any of them. I did guess who was wreaking all the havoc but it really was only process of elimination not because there were any character details to give away the suspect.
This started out very slow and the first third of the book tends to be boring. I am glad I hung in there because it did amp up and catch my interest. It did give me some insights into the mind of those who fight fires! That part seemed well done.
Maybe; Because I would want to hear some sappy story.
I did after this book, but it was an Abridged version. Basically, from what I can tell from Nora Roberts's writing- everyone who she wants you to like is Perfect. They say the right thing, have the perfect job, and are amazingly handsome or beautiful, and so on...
Gulliver Curry. She makes a convincing guy.
I did have several eye rolls- and "come on" reactions.
Overall, it was cheesy. But the Narrator did a great job. Please keep in mind I have listened to all sorts- from Jojo Moyes, to Joshilyn Jackson, Charlaine Harris and Gillian Flynn and Nicholas Sparks. And my All time Favorite is Pride and Prejudice. This was my first Nora Roberts book, and I'm not sold completely on the perfect characters yet. However, I do love Happy endings!!
Probably, its depictions of fire fighting as intense and exciting as any typical fight scene.
She pulled it off well.
The book is about three things. Romance, a mystery and fighting fires. The romance and mystery was evenly integrated enough for the most part that it wasn't boring long enough to qualify for a skip. And the fighting fires were stand alone and extremely entertaining events. However at the romances apex I had to skip two chapters out of boredom, but the copulation I heard before skipping is described graphically enough to probably give quite a few people the need to find a bathroom if thats the kind of thing you like.
It just didn't keep my interest. I found myself thinking about other things, because it was so boring. I tried to get far enough into the book to give it a chance, but I had to give it up.
give it a better story line
The narrator did a good job.
I normally like Nora Roberts, but this was just boring.
I loved this as I have loved a number of Nora Roberts audiobooks. The characters were strong and interesting and the narrator did a fabulous join. Contest to what some others have said about the amount of fire detail, I found it really enhanced the story. it's one of my go to listens when I chose to relisten to a book.
