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.
At first I didn't care for the "witness" voice but it really grows on you. I only listen to books in the car when I'm running errands and I found myself wanting to listen longer. It's a really good story and I love the characters. Brook's mother is a hoot.
I think this is one of Nora Roberts best. I found the characters interesting and the plot gripping. Great Narration by Julia Whelan . I enjoyed this book so much I hated for it to end.
Very exciting - easy listening - something to think about???
All of Nora Roberts' books are easy listening and entertaining... This was definitely one of her best.
I liked her drama...
Sort of, I like the characters and the atmosphere of the book but it's way longer than necessary and so little is happening at times it makes me struggle to finish this book.
The characters. Both Abigail and Brooks are awesome, not to mention the beautiful ending, though highly predictable.
Abigail. Her intelligence, logical way of thinking and her innocence makes her one of my favorite heroines.
Nope, definitely not! This book is so ridiculously long I listened to it for weeks (though only listening when jogging).
I like Nora Roberts type stories, you know they will have a happy ending - maybe not the ending you expect, but still happy. The story kept me on the edge of my seat through parts of it. Lots of twists and turns!
Although I at first thought I was listening to a 'Young Adult' story I soon came to realize I was not.... and then I couldn't stop listening.
How easy Nora Roberts made it to connect with the characters.
Liz, the main character, was my favorite character, probably because I felt very sympathetic to what she went through and could relate somewhat. Also because of the immense amount of character development and struggle she went through throughout the book, and in the end she made it and came out a better person for it.
I laughed quite a bit at poor Liz. She is such an incredibly smart and capable, and at the same time silly and vulnerable person. I also laughed a lot at Brooks and his mom, Nora does a good job of inserting light humor into the right places. I cried when certain characters died, I won't say who and spoil it. It was very emotional, and the honor and tragedy of their sacrifice brought tears to my eyes.
Great great book. An easy, enjoyable listen for anyone, especially those who like mysteries. Good plot, great character development, and a good ending. Thanks Nora!
