I have listened to this book three times and love it more each time. I want a grandson named Brooks. Love him!
Very similar to the female character in Chesapeake Blue, socially inept, but smart.
I have not listened to Julia Whelan before, but loved her subtle Southern accent. I am southern and hate it when the accent is overdone.
I have listened to the book over and over because I love it so much.
I have enjoyed the freedom that audible gives me. I can do my hosuework and still "read" at the same time. I love audible!
This book was excellently written and performed! I loved the characters and while there is a romantic element, the book is also part detective mystery. Bravo!
I loved her voice. I really believed the different voices she used for the characters she portrade.
I could not put the book down I enjoyed the story line and also the narrator.
While I am new to this genre of books, I was quite impressed with the story line. I loved the performance. It truly made the book come to life and engaged me immediately.
A must read!
The story line, loved Liz/Abigail character.
No, I don't think I have listen to Julia Whelan's performances before.
Yes. I couldn't wait to find out is she could ever trust again.
The ending when she was finally truly happy.
If possible yes
I would love to see a movie made from this novel
I do both, listening and reading. if my week is very busy, audio will be my choice, if not, sitting with a book is also nice.
How different and so similar. The female character was a computer geek, with 100% positive confidence, social off balance, but so loving. Chief Brooks was just your typical Southern boy with lots of charm. Adding his mother, sisters and the town folks, just made this one of best Nora Roberts novel for me. I so love the length of the story, such a delicious books needed a great length, lol.
My favorite scene, was when Brooks told Abby he loved her and she freaked out. The reason for the breakdown, One one had ever told her they loved her. He promised to tell her for the rest of her life, everyday. She had her hand fisted tight over her heart, as if letting go, will take away the words. That was a tear moment for me.
The: I will tell you I love you everyday
The funniest scene was when she kneed him in the you know what, added with am under cut to the throat. Laugh out, with tears
RN, Mother of 3, GiGi of 3, "Geek-in-camo" Will listen or read 24/7, 365. Always upset when book made into movie.
There was a good pace set and interesting plot.
The idea of a young woman taking down a Russian mob
Her look after shampoo and dye job.
They messed with the wrong geek.
Julia Whelan did a marvelous job of performing all of the characters. I absolutely loved the way she portrayed Abigail. I enjoyied the book more because of her ability to add such perfect inflections and mannerisms to the character that I would have missed out on had I been reading rather than listening to the book.
Often in books, characters who are supposed to be intelligent do obviously stupid things just so the plot can progress, I really appreciated that the author didn't find that necessary in this book.
Good thriller becomes a bit of a romance novel for about 20 pages in the middle. Good thriller anyway. Highly enjoyable. Looked for another, but it's not a series. :(
