I was expecting more lots more drama, suspense based on the summary. I was disappointed with how much emphasis there is on a relationships. Its just not my cup of tea. I got the book, because it seemed more of a suspense, thriller type. In reality, I would say 1/4 of the book is that way.The ending really let me down. I was expecting a big resolution to the built up story line, instead the finish was just a leaf in the wind, that just floated on by.
I would if they're interested in relationship story line with some suspense.
Spoiler alert! This book has all the thrills for which I've been waiting. I felt the angst of the young girl in a loveless situation. I could see the scenes in my mind as I listened to the performance. I was entranced by the "Andy Griffith" type hero, loving his humor and patience. I waited anxiously as the witness developed her revenge. I also gasped when she "died." Listen to this one!
intriguing, suspenseful, lovestory
how brooks got what he wanted, the love of his life
Right at the top.
Yes it is loved it
I enjoy all of Nora Roberts book. I Have the hold collection of 'In Death"
I would recommend this because the story is strong, the characterisations are interesting and there was good tension.
Yes, but you can't, so instead I listened as much as I could over the weekend, gardening, shopping, doing the washing, cooking and any other excuse!
The characters were very real and the story is something that could or does happen. It combined suspense, a love story and reality. Kept me on my "toes" until the end.
There were three characters I especially liked. Elizabeth Fitch aka Abigail, her dog Bert and Chief of Police Brooke. They made the story believable. One could feel Elizabeth's fear, the reaction of her excellently trained dog and the way Brooke sucessfully carried out his job in resolving to break this case. You could also feel the humanity of the story.
I am an avid reader and this lady is one the the best adapting her voice to each character. I think she would be excellent in narrating any book.
I neither laughed or cried but waited in suspense as each chapter was read to see the murderers captured. Seeing that Elizabeth could regain her real identity and live a true life was absolute relief but I hated to see the book end as it was so well written.
I felt this book was one of the best written by Nora Roberts.
I loved the characters and the way the story developed.
I was looking for a really good book to read after a few hit and misses...I absoloutely loved this book and actually listened to it three times!!
My favorite scene was when the heroine told Brooks the story of her witness protection delimma...I also liked the murder scene that she witnessed at 16.
The narriator really made the book for me. I was able to distinguish between characters and really enjoyed the story.
Overall, I really liked the storyline. It didn't seem typical of Nora Roberts books, but I haven't read or listen to them all. I wasn't sure if I was going to like it, but decided to try it based on the reviews. I was hooked from the start. The reason I didn't give it five stars was that I didn't feel like the relationship between the two main characters really developed, I didn't feel like I knew them as a couple or that they really cared for each other. Other than that I thought the beginning was excellent and the middle and end were good.
