This isn't the type of book I normally listen to. After the first chapter I sucked right in to the back waters of Mississippi. The characters came to life for me and I found myself thinking about them while I wasn't listening to the book. I hope that anyone listening to this book enjoys it as much as I did. Its a thrilling old fashion murder mystery.
It's probably in the top 10
I liked when Caroline came into the library and discovered there was more to Tucker than she'd first thought.
I love love love Tucker's voice. It's entirely possible it's the sexiest voice I've ever heard.
Tucker, partly just to listen to him talk, and partly because of his easy-going intelligence.
My second Nora Roberts listen. Even though I had figured out who the killer was, I'm a fan.
It held my interest, narrator was fine. Great book, I enjoyed it quite a bit.
No, I never listen/ read a book more than once. I already know the ending
When she played the violin for herself.
The story was great but the narrator really brought these characters to life. This audio made me want to see a movie version of this story.
Anytime Tucker spoke, it was pretty memorable. Honestly, though, there were too many to choose just one.
His overall delivery. He effortlessly brought a distinct "voice" to each character.
Characters and story length
Tucker - he was flawed enough to be interesting, but still a good person
Strong male characters - females can sound whiny at times, though
Prepare to be surprised
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.
Say something about yourself!
NR's stalkers are so scary. I just finished The Witness and it was really good. I probably should have waited awhile before I listened to this one. Very southern, which I like, but the bad stuff is bad. Interesting story, it kept me involved even though it became slow at times. I believe you can enjoy this story. I recommend.
I enjoyed this story. It felt vaguely familiar to me as I started reading it and realized I had seen the movie on Lifetime a couple of years ago but had not read the book. I liked the book better.
This is my very first Nora Roberts novel ever and I absolutely loved it. She took her time developing the characters. There is romance, humor, racial tension, class tension, southern culture, oh...and murder! Fell in love with Tucker Longstreet. The deep south has this city girl curious. Loved Tom Stechschulte's narration. Can't imagine a woman doing as fine a job as he did.
I love to cook, but I hate cutting vegetables. But while having this book in I cut too many veggies on several occasions as I prepared meals. I was so lost in the story that I could have cut veggies all day.
I highly recommend this book. Can't wait to choose the next one from her.
