One of the reviews below summed this book up well. It started off brightly - engaging the reader with the story of Elizabeth as a 16 year old being dragged in to the witness protection program having witnessed a murder. Fast forward 12 years. Rather than being a story about exacting revenge, it drifts into a love story between a small town cop and Elizabeth. The interactions and descriptions of their courtship dragged on and bored me. The ending appeared rushed and you would have liked to have known what happened to some of the earlier protagonists. The performance of the reader was OK although, her male impressions sounded slightly odd. Overall the book was OK - kept my interest but the ending was poor.
I would suggest it for a lazy weekend escape, something to apply your imagination to and enjoy the story.
It's out of my normal genre for any comparisons.
Never experienced her performance prior, usually prefer male readings, but acclimatized and started enjoying the story more and therefore her performance. Good effort.
It's no where near a 'Girl With' series or many others, it's not sucked-in alarmingly different, but it's a good story to keep the listener (male or female) looking forward to plugging back in and getting back to 'what's going to happen next'.
Flynn's Amy Dunne doesn't have to state about the IQ of 210 or repeatedly say "I'm very smart" and yet any readers still believe it. And honestly, Liz/Abigale's skills on blend-in and what it takes on the run are just BS. Finally, NR needs to do more home works on her next technical descriptions. Please at least read the seri Stealing the Network started in 2003 and ended in 2007 (that means they're also outdated) from Syngress Publishing.
Everything. Flat, predictable, cardboard characters, a silly storyline. I'm not against escapist fiction as a whole, however this book annoyed me so much I wanted to escape from it. After part one I realized there was no point in enduring it. I kept waiting for it to become interesting as it had recieved excellent reviews.
The narrator was the best part of the book.
All of it.
Read it read it read it!!!! This story is one of Roberts' best. I would highly recommend to anyone who has even a minimal interest in her writing.
I have not listened to many audio books or read many books for that matter. I found myself really looking forward to listening to this book every night. So for me this is a good indicator as to how good a book is.
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.
