I found this book slow to start and equally quick to end. I do love the settings and real life places Nora Roberts continues to deliver.
yes. good storyline. could not stop listening.
kept guessing when the main charector would tell her friends about her life.
I have purchased over 400 books. I have high standards for writing and content, but indulge in "travel trash" or fairly good entertainment.
My headline says it all - almost. for dummies and the romantically needy. It seemed like a smart idea to ride the wave of the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, for sales,I guess????
I have a couple of comments that are more constructive. I think the reader is good, however the voice of Abigail never grows out of being sixteen. It is quite implausible with her character. I don't get a serious LIsbeth Salander wannabe with a childish voice. The author did a fair job with her story, but I think it fell down at the end. Everything was wrapped up too quickly and I felt let down with the trite and true. I think if you like Nora Roberts then you will be happy. I have never read her before and probably will not again.
This is my first Nora Roberts book and what a fantastic book to start with. The story line was so interesting...a very strong female character who could take care of herself despite being served all the odds. Elizabeth/ Abigail is smart, clever, logical. The man she meets, Brooks, is a patient, kind, loving man who understands how to help her come out of her shell.
The voice reader for the book was also very good. I couldn't wait to get in the car every morning and afternoon to continue the story.
The story was engaging and entertaining - the charactres were likable - the story had a good flow.
love Nora Roberts! Not all her books show her amazing writing talent. I loved this book, loved the narrator! Could not recommend it more highly!!!!
I stopped reading books by Nora Roberts because I didn't like the route she took. Her books became much less interesting to me so I just gave up. I decided to try this book and I enjoyed it very much. I ended up looking for reasons to have time to listen to it.
I enjoyed the narrator as well.
Reading is my greatest pleasure and I read for entertainment. Mystery, suspense and romance are my picks.
Yes, it was a great story and all of its twists and turns made it hard to put down.
As always with Norah Roberts, the plot is full of little side roads that makes you want to continue on and on. It wa sso very hard to find a stopping point.
When she finally told her story to the sheriff
When the mom got her new dog
It was a great read. I like happy endings and for me, reading is an escape from the day to day toils of life. I want entertainment. I don't want to have to look for hidden meanings and symbolism. I want to just enjoy a good story that holds my attention. And this one did!
engaging, memorable, amazing dog
Yes---the girl had a stong mind of her own--didn't know if she'd ever let the guy in---and how could even HE (a sheriff) keep her safe (incredibly clever ending)
I loved when he she asked him if he loved her and he answered by holding her tightly--then she asked him again and he said if he had to show her again---would the dog send him to the hospital?
yes--hard to put down---but too long for one sitting.
