The book was way too focused on romance, not so much on mystery and suspense. I was very bored.
I wish she had had more suspense and reasons to feel tense about lurking danger.
The narration was great.
Nora Roberts is a great writer. I just don't go for books that are almost all about romance. I wish it hadn't been categorized as a mystery thriller.
Haven't read fluff like this in many years, but after several books on dark, serious non-fiction, thought: "What the f@#k!" and indulged in some 'Power & Passion' drivel from the $4.95 bargain bin. But it was not half-bad, pounded through all 16 hours in 2.5 days. Surprisingly 'OK'.
I listened to The Witness years ago and it is a title that has stuck with me and would go back to. I loved the sense of security that Elizabeth builds for herself and the ebb and flow of the pace of the book. This is one of Nora Robert's best.
Interested in everything. Listening for something AMAZING...
I'm not a fan of romance novels but this mix of suspense and romance was irresistible. The main character, a socially awkward, literal, almost Asperger's afflicted heroine is interesting and the interactions with her romantic interest, the charming, easy going lovable chief of police is laugh out loud hilarious. The story is unexpectedly heartfelt but not sappy. Knowing there had to be a culminating of action was deliciously anticipated. A little predictable, yes, but what romance isn't. This is more entertaining than most. The characters are likable, every single one, including the goofy new age hippy parents of the police chief. Nora Roberts, good job!
Good story. Kept me guessing till the end. I like strong smart women. A really sweet love story with good supporting characters.
