For many years now, my favorite story of Nora Roberts, has been the 3 sisters trilogy. This story just surpassed it. The BEST story Nora has ever written. You will NOT be disappointed.
The narrator was excellent. She did a great job with both male and female voice. She also did an excellent job showing by tone of voice when Abigail was starting to relax and be less mechanical with her dialogue.
This is by far the best book I've listen to. I've just finished my 3rd time. The narrator is great and we know that can destroy a great book. It is very well written and not your cook cutter book. Well done!
This is one of my favourite NR book. Julia Whelan does an exceptional narration.
If you liked "The Collector" or "The Search" I think you will enjoy this one as well. Haven't read all of these? Do it! You are in for a treat.
This is my first Nora Roberts novel, and I do have to say it was fantastic. Elizabeth in this book reminds me of Bones from the show Bones. She is so intelligent, yet cannot decipher sarcasm from reality. She is awesome.
Elizabeth witnesses the murder of her friend and the man they went out drinking with get murdered. She ran away from the scene and called 911. She was put right into protective custody. While in protective custody, she becomes very close with one of the Marshall's in charge of watching over her. Elizabeth has an eidetic memory (a.k.a. photographic memory). She remembers every detail of the night of the murder. Every word said, every face, every name, everything. Being the Key witness in the murder has put her right on the Russian Mafia's hit list.
When in the safe house, Elizabeth has her first "real birthday" ever. Her Marshall's brought her a cake and gifts. When Elizabeth goes to change, her world is turned upside down again.
Soon we meet Abigail Lowery. She is a quiet woman, in a small town. She is a freelance programmer and likes her quiet life. She prefers to be along, and has a top notch surveillance system.
The Sheriff of the town is quite intrigued by this quiet girl who only comes to town for groceries, and then retreats right back to her home. No one really knows her, but Brooks hopes to change that.
Little by little Brooks breaks Abigail's walls down and they get closer. This is when the book get interesting. Like even more interesting. When they finally form a relationship, Brooks and Abagail become a team.
We learn more and more about Abigail and more about the this little town she has been living in. She has come to love it.
It only gets better and better the more you read in this book. Roberts is a fantastic author. Her characters are awesome, and so complex. She makes you love and hate them very well. You will love getting lost in this story.
