The main character is supposed to be so highly intelligent. However, the author has her coming across as almost mentally challenged. The dialogue from her is so ridiculous. She just sounds stupid. Very disappointing.
This was a very average police novel sandwiching the schmaltziest Ladies Home Journal pap ever written. Way too long. No suspense at the end and frankly pretty non believable. Too bad. I've listened to 400+ books in 30 years. This was in the bottom quartile. On a positive note, the reader was ok.
not sure Prob a Picoult novel

Not a great book but well crafted characters and likable hero and heroine made it fun to listen to if you're in the mood for very light reading that's strictly entertainment.
I loved the plot of this one. a strong, super smart girl that learns to protect herself & do the right thing. And, dogs are involved. Always love that too.
A young girl that has spent the better part of her life trying to please her cold controlling mother, finally breaks out on her own one night in an effort to make a friend. Things go wildly out of control and she sees her new best friend being killed by a Russian mobster. This one rebellious night changes her life forever. The young girl goes against her mother’s wishes once more and agrees to become a witness for the prosecution. This story takes you from hair raising action to twelve years later where the girl has made a new life for herself and is living in complete seclusion. The love of a man draws her into the real world and her life is once again turned inside out.
This book is tremendous. I've said this twice, so take my rating seriously. It is not quite poetic, but every page is worth reading. It is paced well, has all the essential human interactions, has a likable main character who has lots of unlikable characteristics. Yet her whole is hard to let go of. I keep relistening to it to keep her going. This took me through the New Years and I'm happy for that. It is better than the Death series, even though there were many Death Series moments I love, this is superior. I guess I'll have to put Nora Roberts aside for now, but I'm so happy I read this one first.
