Hmmm... I sort of liked The Witness. I can see why people devour her stories. This being the first of her stories that I have read, and being partially impressed, I do have more than 200 more of her books to go before being able to judge her as a writer.
I felt that this was very boilerplate. PG romance. B mystery. Second rate writing.
Nora Roberts knows what she is doing. All of the pieces fell into place nicely. You can see how her mind works an an author. Its all about a formula. Match the right pieces together, stir and you have a best selling novel.

Yes!! Great story and narrator perfect!
2 favorites: Elizabeth and Brooks. Liz was such a complex character, very young, yet old for her age because of her genus. Her core was precious. Brooks, what can I say, the best hero ever. A wonderful, caring, sincere, sexy man. The whole package, looks beneath the surface. Thinks on his feet and doesn't judge. An honest police, go figure LOL
Julia Whelan used just the right tone of voice throughout the book. I could see each and every character through her performance. Would love to find more books that she narrates.
Never give up on your dreams.
Thank goodness I bought the audible, if I'd known it was so many chapters not sure if I would have started it. But, once I got into it (from the very beginning), could not stop.
Real good storyline, you want to know what happenes next and if they're going to be able to 'pull it off'. As mentioned above, it took me quite long before the narrating voice did what it should do for me.
The audio performer was exceptional; the best I've ever heard in an audio book.
This book was the perfect combination of suspense, wit, and redemption. Well written and well performed. I couldn't stop listening. Sad that it's over.

Light, beach reading
The main characters were likable. I do not usually like Nora Roberts books, but this one did not have the corny dialogue that I dislike.
Abigail was a strong heroine, facing tough challenges.
I liked the scenes in the garden and kitchen performed by the main character. This book had a nice domestic feel good element mixed with high tech, crime and small town life.
I really liked this book. It was captivating and real! I could appreciate the circumstances of the characters and empathize with them. I thought it was heartfelt, exciting
and an honest story with an appropriate ending.
