What a great study of human nature. Loved and believed almost every character in the book. Great story. Fell in love with the heroine from page one. The lovechild mother and rich kid's father were a bit much. Definitely a female POV, but I think it helped me understand and respect, no, make that marvel and cherish the female of our spaces. Five stars and well deserved.
Steinbeck or a good history.
Not a bad performance. The story itself starts off strong and bogs down. Could have been a fair short story.
Any of them. I found that as the story went on I cared less and less for the characters.
Intelligently written, but so tedious I kept fast-forwarding through the steamy, contrived love-making and plodding plot development. I couldn't wait for it to end.
I admit, I used to be a Nora Roberts fan but then the books just seemed to be the same book over and over with different character names. I picked this one up on sale because I wasn't willing to part with a whole credit on the chance this might be different. I'm glad I did and would have spent a credit on it. The story was detailed and the main character Elizabeth, grew and changed from experiences. It was not incredibly suspenseful. You could pretty much guess what was coming but it was still a nice light listen and entertaining. If I can find more like this, I would go back to spending credits on her books versus just waiting for them to go on sale.
Nora Roberts story's are brilliant!! the teenage Elizabeth, in The Witness, breaks your heart I think I held my breath the entire time she was in the apartment with her girlfriend until she found her phone. I can't wait to start this one over, for the third time!
The story would be good because it is well developed...but the "F" bombing was so gratuitous and not even necessary! If anyone can ignore the cussing, then it will be enjoyable to hear. I really got interested in the plot. If I were " reading" it, I could skip over the disturbing repetitions.
Take out the unnecessary street language. Her characters are nicely developed, her plot is good, but.......! Yuk!!!
She was good.
None....just the token cussing
I liked the narrator's voice.
I liked the main character. She was strong, beautiful, brilliant, and self-reliant.
She had a very smooth sounding voice.
Plotting the main adversary's downfall.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
this was a wonderful story about a strong and brilliant girl. It was so interesting that I hoped it would go on and on, but when it ended it was a satisfying end,, an end with a twist.
