I don't if it is the performance or that the authors are just good but whenever I'm not sure what book I want to buy I usually pick one Kirsten Potter narrated and I'm never disappointed.
excellent would want this story to keep going! oak knoll series are my favorite books, hoping there are more.
I have just finished the third book in the Oak Knoll series .... She is an incredible writer !!! I could hardly break away to go to work !! Prior to these three books, I had never read anything by Tami Hoag..Now, I'm about to select another! She so develops her characters that you become attached to them and wonder how they are ... Even after the book is over !!! I hope there will be more to come in the Oak Knoll series !!! Thank you , Tsmi, for so much suspense and enjoyment !!
I truly enjoyed this recording. This was the third book in a series and I have enjoyed all three of them. Tami Hoag just keeps improving with age. I hated for this story to end. Bring on some more Ms Hoag.
I absolutely loved it! The narrator was amazing in being able to express the different characters and there emotions. She really made it easy to feel apart of what was going on. Kept me locked in from page one. The story line was great and I loved the ending.
This is a moving,. complex story. It is told from point of views of mother and sister of young girl who goes missing at age 16 years. Years. pass and while police have person of interest no proof can be found. How does that impact mother, father, sister, and police who are trying to find out what happened? Meanwhile what is happening with kidnapper who remains free to torture survivors and seek more victims? This is a disturbing,
moving story that is full of tension and despair. I found it hard to pause my read of this novel. I love author's vivid, complex characters. Hope there will be other Oak Knoll novels.
Not as good as the other Oak Knoll books. I was hoping for a mystery, but this isn't really a whodunit. You know from the beginning who the bad guy is so there's not much suspense or excitement. There is some interesting character development but not much on the part of the main characters from the Oak Knoll series so that was a little disappointing.
This is the last book in the Oak Knoll trilogy. Frankly, I’d hope the entire series would climax with this story and encompass the characters developed in the previous books. Sadly it does not. If you’re looking for Anne, Vince, Frannie, etc., they are are peripheral characters. Following the abduction of her sixteen year old daughter, and the death of her husband, a subsequent obsession is all consuming for the main character. The alleged abductor has followed her to a new town, Oak Knoll. There is an extraordinary amount of desperation on her part. Albeit she has reason for this angst, it is overkill that is presented via internal dialogue that seems to go on forever. Again and again the main character expresses her frustration, the Oak Knoll cops express theirs, and it gets a little exasperating for the reader.
I wanted to like the main character, but couldn’t … too self absorbed. Surprising that there are any romantic feelings toward her, but a sleazy private investigator and the good-guy Oak Knoll police investigator, Tony Mendez, are somehow charmed by this crazy, selfish woman. At minimum, she should have more empathy with the surviving daughter, who is starving for any affection from her grief stricken mother. About eleven hours of listening, Down the Darkest Road has a good title in that this is a very dark story … little, if any, comic relief. If you’re a big fan of Tami Hoag, I’m sure you’ll like this story, but in my opinion, it doesn’t measure up to the first two stories. A credible performance by Kirsten Potter, the narrator.
