I love books!
This was my second Nora Roberts' book, I got it in an audible three for two book sale. I really enjoyed the first one, "Witness", and thought I'd give her another go. I read somewhere that the author's books are steamy romance with chilling suspense, I'd say that was accurate for this book although the romance side didn't really dominate. I often state I want to be entertained by books and this story was that. It was set in NW Mississippi's delta region. The two protagonists were a Southern gentleman and a Philadelphia blue blood. It was kind of a strange mix of characters but it didn't detract from the suspense side. This book was written twenty years ago and is one of many the author has written. I did try and figure out who the bad guy was in the story but the author didn't give it away until the end.
I am an avid reader! Now I guess an avid Listener. I am addicted to Audible, and love how it keeps me focused when I am trying to get my work done. I am also a really fun kids entertainer... some Adults too!
Nora Roberts as usual does a fantastic Job of writing the most sexy and thrilling story to help us forget all about our own reality. Yes it is sexy and visual love it or leave it! I might add that I am not a fan of romance, but this one sucked me in.
Loved the story. Mr. Stechschulte, you have a voice I throughly enjoyed but your Southern accent was less than stellar at times condescending to my Southern ears. Please don't ever do a Southern accent again. However, don't let this negative comment keep you from down loading the book. Mr. Stechschulte doesn't over use the accent and he really does have a pleasing natural voice.
I've always been a fan of Nora Roberts' more thriller/mystery based novels. So when I came across this one and realized that I hadn't heard it yet, I instantly bought it. While the narration was vaguely annoying at times, (The accents bothered me some) the book itself was outstanding. As I was listening, I was sitting on the edge of my seat, racking my brain to figure out who the killer was. Most times with some of Nora's books, it's obvious as to who the murderer will be before you even get to the end. This one, though, I never saw it coming.
I was blindsided when I heard who the murderer was. The character was one of my favorites, and when I heard just who it was, I was mind blown. It was the last thing I had suspected, and I must give a round of applause to Mrs. Roberts for her outstanding plot twist. This book was greatly worth the money and time spent listening, and I've already suggested it to many people. This is a great buy.
Yes, I loved the characters and they reminded me of folks in my own small rural town
When Tucker made love to Caroline in that slow seductive tone only a southern gentlemen can do.
His voice is like Butter!
When Cy realized that he was not to blame for his father's death
One of the best Nora Roberts books so far. Im off to find another.
Yes....and ....No! I loved the story line....and it kept my interest.....but I got really tired of listening to the foul language and the crude sexual references...by both the men and women. The sexual theme was a bit overdone and the language was offensive and tediuos.
Tucker and Caroline, were my favorite.....but Cousin Lulu was a hoot too!
Yes! Avoid small towns in Mississippi. Ha ha!
Nora Roberts could write a lot better stories ...without all the foul language and crudity....in my opinion. I like her books....but I prefer to read books that are colorful.....but less crude.
The performance of Tom Stechschulte as the charming Southern playboy, Tucker Longstreet is superb and elevates the romantic suspense story incalculably!
We are RV'ers traveling the USA. I love Romance, Mysteries, and Thriller Novels. Good listening while on the road.
I loved this book. The narrator made this story even better as he played the different characters. I'm sure many of you have listened to boy meets girl and she resists love stories. This is so much more than that. The mystery of who done it and how she made these characters come to life through this wonderful Narrator made this book so much better. I just loved this one.
I have always been a fan of Nora Roberts mysteries. However, the last few have more or less followed the same predictable formula. They are good for listening on the long commute and are entertaining though.
