Love Nora Roberts, but her past two books have been a little painful. Excessive and unnecessary detail. Very repetitive. I listened to this on audiobook, and it was like she cut and pasted the main character's retelling over and over. (Although the Narrator did the best she could with the material.) I feel like she's resting on her laurels a bit and just cranking out books with little editing. There's a fine line between fleshing out a scene and killing the reader with details. I also was a bit weary of the rambling internal monologue of the characters. It's okay to have them ruminate or think through a decision or their feelings, but don't make me listen to all of it. She spent tons of time on teeny details then, Wham!, it's resolved in a short chapter. Was a deadline looming? And we're done.
It's one of N.R. At her best, the suspense, the plot, it could have bordered on J.D. Robb, I loved it! This is the kind of story telling I look forward to from her. I didn't want to put it down. The narrator did an amazing job with this story, it was a difficult one at times with characters who had different accents, she nailed it in my opinion. Flawless effort, believable, and easy to listen to! Keep 'em coming Ms. Roberts!I
This was another great read from Nora Roberts. Good main characters and good narration. The beginning was a bit slow and difficult to listen to just because of the painful situation the heroine was in. Love the town and ancillary characters, as well.
The entire book was good
The character were all very good the location for the story was excellent
Maybe just to a female friend
Yes, the part when she was in the Safe House about to celebrate her birthday
My esteem for Audible has certainly increased after enjoying this book!
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!
