Call it silly, but I like stories to be edited and clean. One sentence, Jane has only a brother and sister, another, she has brothers who have taught her to fight. One sentence, Sam ran out of the house shirtless, the next, his silk shirt is wet with the rain.
It seemed as if the narrator struggled to perform the range between the male and female voices. (listen before buying)
Lastly, I think the author tried to write a murder/romance, but ended up with a juvinile premise of four friends and a list, a mentally disturbed person, who doesn't really fit until the last few minutes and low-budget soft-porn. And, everything happens in a three-week timeline that is not believable.
To relax I listen to my books. It's like yoga but better, you don't have to bend your body!!
YES, This is a good book for every female that likes to laugh, cry and get all hot.
When she meet his family. That was so funny.
No but I hope to find more of her books
I would actually give this a 3.5 to 4 stars. This was my first Linda Howard book. It was a fun book with a mystery and higher body count than I expected. I will say that Howard does write crazy people very well. If you are looking for a mostly humorous read with a little mystery then this is a good book....it is a tad unrealistic but fun non the less.
It was gripping. Couldn't stop listening.
The ending with Jane & Sam. That's all I'll say.
I listened to this book because I've listened to or read just about everything Linda Howard has ever written. Up against some of my favorites like "Kiss Me While I Sleep" and "Death Angel", this book is definitely not one of Ms. Howard's best. It is an odd mix of humorous romance entwined with a plot that features a psychotic serial killer. I couldn't decide if I should laugh or feel edgy. The reader did a good job with voicing the multiple characters, which made it easy to listen to. This is a fun 'read' and a good one if you are a true Linda Howard fan. If this is your first time with this author, try my favorites first.
Yes, nice one to spend a few hours with.
Mr Perfect obviously! :-) Wish I had his patience
Laughed quite a few times
Good example of how a relationship can benifit from at least one party staying calm
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
It started off as a really funny lighthearted story which was expertly switched into a dark murder mystery romance (with a twist or two along the way) by the skilled writings of Ms Howard.
Worth a credit? If you're looking for a good romance thriller then, for the price, just buy it with $ coz it's cheap enough.
AWESOME writer! GREAT story! A real good azz story that is well written. I can't say how much I truly enjoyed this book! The previous reviews really pushed me to get this title so I hope this review gets loads of others to take a LISTEN!
Say something about yourself!
I read this book a number of years ago and laughed my head off. It was available on tape but not CD and I've continued to watch for the CD or download and now its here. Once again I laughed out load. I found the narrator took a while to get used to but that was the only down side. Some of the references in the book are dated as you would expect from a re-issue but I still loved it!
The antics and smart mouth of the main character.
