Story: I loved this story. I'm a fan of romance, mystery, and some substance and this had it. I love the idea of fire jumping and all of the relationships that went into this story. It was a great read. I'm only bummed that its not part of a series.
Narrator: She was excellent! I love a female narrator when the main character is a strong female. She was easy to follow and was great at putting the emotion into the story. I will listen to something read by her anytime!
I am an avid "reader"- I prefer to listen to books rather than read them due to the added dimension added by the narrator.
I always enjoy getting into a story. However, this was mediocre reading, though enjoyable enough. The characters were predictable and other than the "whodunnit" part of the book, it played out exactly as I thought it would.
I've read some of her books and enjoyed them very much. This one covered a subject matter that I knew very little about, and to that extent, it was interesting learning how firejumpers work. I would definitely read other books by Nora Roberts based on previous experiences.
I really enjoyed Emma's skydive.
I don't think I would expect a follow-up book, as the story was pretty much self-contained.
Perhaps the characters could appear in another book but not a sequel, in my opinion.
This was easily one of my favourite Nora Roberts books! The narrator was fantastic and she really brought the characters to life. The story was gripping and I loved every minute of it. It is a great listen and I highly recommend it.
Yes, it was both interesting and suspenseful?
It made me think of The Search by Iris Johansen. Both books made their subject matter "real".
She made you see the fire, feel the heat and really worry about the characters.
The setting for this love/adventure story is fresh and interesting. A winning recipe with a few delightful twists.
Maybe tone the hero worshipping of the main characters down a little, but then again, who does not love a superhuman!
Excellent entertainment on a mini break from reality. Highly recommended.
This was a refreshing story and I enjoyed it more than I thought that I would, it was like a love story and also dramatic, made tears come to my eyes, while at the same time a smile that it had a good ending.
Rowan was the favorite because she was the main character that the author gave us the most information, so I got to know her the best. Rowan was strong but had her weaknesses which made her seem real.
I like the way the narrator distinguished the reading of each character and the read the narration portion was read so that it didn't disrupt with the flow of the story.
For some reason I remember the character that died in the story, because the death made such an impact on how the story ended.
I ordered this book for something different to read and I at first I thought it was going to be boring because it was different and the narrator was not familiar to me, but I ended up enjoying the book and hated to see it end and I enjoyed the way that it was read.
I've never read Roberts before and had only heard of her, the extent of my knowledge going so far as to know she wrote romance. I've been off of romance for many many years now, hating how the gener had seemed to change from when I was first introduced to it.
This though, is way beyond amazing. It was funny, suspensful, romantic, had mystery, every element I could possibly dream of was there. In fact, I'm going to go so far as to say that this is far better than the old fashioned Harlequin's I read back in the day. Never, in my wildest dreams did I expect Roberts to write such an amazing story. And Lowman's narration was excellent. She and Roberts brought the characters to life, the story, everything. I felt as if I was right there with Rowan and Gull and all the other fire jumpers. I felt the suspense when they jumped fire, the passion that ignited between a rookie jumper and one who had been doing it for years. I was as surprised as the others to learn that the culprit was not whom I had thought it was.
I just do not have the words adequate enough to express my sheer delight with this story. I am for certain in search of more books by Roberts and am anticipating them, being just as amazing and thrilling as this one has been.
A must read for anyone.
I liked the development of the characters and the tight setting at the base camp. I wasn't happy that the main characters were "over the top" physically fit, good looking, talented, strong, smart and polite.
The Last Gunfight: The Real Story of the Shootout at the O.K. Corral-And How It Changed the American West.
Not unless it is done like a Marvel Comic.
I wasn't expecting this to be a romance. This is my first Nora Roberts book and I just thought I would give it a try. The audible reviews didn't really suggest the degree of the romance. Caught me by surprise.
This story was great from start to finish. I really enjoyed Rowan’s character. A strong heroine who is believable, likeable and stills kicks butt. I didn’t feel any lags in this story and the supporting characters kept my interest without distracting from the main story.
This is my first time listening to Rebecca Lowman and I thought she did an excellent job.
