IF THIS BOOK HAD BEEN WRITTEN BY SOMEONE ELSE I WOULD HAVE GIVEN IT 5 STARS. IT SEEMS ROBERTS IS PULLING OUT OLD CHARACTERS AND STORIES, DUSTING THEM OFF AND REUSING THEM. I'VE ALWAYS BEEN A FAN OF HERS, BUT I WOULD LOVE TO SEE SOMETHING NEW FROM HER, NOT A NEW TITLE, A NEW STORY THAT SHE HASN'T REUSED. EXAMPLE: THIS IS "DANCE UPON THE AIR" REWRITTEN. HOMETOWN COP SAVES GIRL ON THE RUN.
THE STORY IS GOOD AND SO ARE THE CHARACTERS. I LIKE THE BOOK AND THE NARRATOR. THAT'S THE THING WITH ROBERTS, SHE GIVES US WHAT WE LIKE, BUT IT'S GETTING REPETITIVE, AND SO IS THIS REVIEW.
IT'S UP TO YOU.
I loved the theme of it - the hacking as I am in awe of people that clever. The story wasn't too deep but interesting enough.
I liked her performance, thought she was very good. But I cannot say that I'd prefer it over reading the book myself.
I was relieved that Nora has come back. There were some books in the not too distant past that were just very boring (eg Tribute).
It was entertaining and I just wanted to drive my car or go to gym so that I can listen to it.
This is the first Nora Roberts book I've read/heard, and judging by this one, it's the last. The narration was pretty good, but the story is light on substance.
If you read "Girl With a Dragon Tattoo" you'll recognize this story line, but this story doesn't hold up in the action and intrigue arena. It's pretty predictable.
I enjoyed the audio edition of this. I found the reader excellent and kept me wanting to listen to more.
I would definitely recommend this to a friend. I loved the characters and the writing was superb. Although I picked this up thinking it was a mystery/suspense novel, it was absolutely a romance with suspense on the side. Still, I really enjoyed the book. Although I rarely watch it, the leading character Elizabeth reminds me a lot of the female lead in the TV show "Bones"--highly intelligent, yet awkward in social situations. Not my favorite character but I loved the male lead character, Brooks, so much that I just might have to re-read this one--and I am NOT a re-reader.
I loved the writing. The characters were really well defined and there was humor sprinkled throughout the story. I really liked how the author used the characters' own speech, like the various southern idioms coming from the locals in Bickford, to develop the characters throughout the story.
The narrator did a great job with the voices, by the way. A bad narrator can ruin a perfectly good audiobook, and this one did a great job with all the southern accents--even if they aren't Ozark mountains accents. :)
I couldn't pick a favorite scene, however, I did enjoy Abigail's first few encounters with Brooks.
No. This wasn't a tear-jerker, thank goodness.
Read it--you won't regret it!
Completely rewritten story after safe house
Kept me listening when I would have quit reading much sooner
Yes, definitely! The wonderful narrator made the book!!
When she went undercover and began her new life.
The main character.
For this particular book, the narrator sold this listener! Hope to listen to more of her! I am spoiled now!!
Wonderful book and story line. Was a very exciting read and kept me coming back for more.
