My Addiction is Audiobooks!!!! I have an amazingly large audio library. I enjoy romance, mysteries and generally good book by great storytellers.
Listened to this book twice...loved it both times. It is so worth your time and credit!!! Great narrator too.
I did listen to the entire book recently yet I can't recall much about it
lack of substance!
my mind didn't engage enough to consider doing this
an average book, just nothing outstanding for me.

Please read the publisher's summary.
Once again Lauara Lippman has written a well thought out book. Her characters are believable and their interactions seem normal. However, there is much more going on behind the scenes. For Heloise, her well ordered life, preparations for any threat, protection of her son, and contact with persons from a previous life all seem to be under control. However, there are forces picking away at them. As she plans to transform her life and the threats become apparent, she must resolve all of the pieces.
Linda Emond, as always, gives an excellent narration.
Tell us about yourself! An Audible member since 2006 and a voracious reader always.
A well-rounded plot that wasn't reaching for unconnected story lines. I passed the point of believeability in the first chapter.
Her voice simply did not match the subject matter
Heloise visiting Val in prison.
I've read and enjoyed other Laura Lipmann books, but for whatever reason, this one
gave me a yawn.
I've read most of Lippman's books - I got tired of the Monaghan series and really enjoyed the one-offs she began writing. This one, however was simply not as engaging.
This was an interesting book. I was glad to see Helen work through her struggles and turn her future around.
I just listened to this book and I have forgotten the characters already. It was one of those that just did not leave an impression but I did finish it and the story line and narrator were both decent.
Always liked Laura Lippman novels but this is such a great book. If you want to read a fascinating story that you can feel every second and be immersed completely, please read this. It is greatly narrated and I absolutely loved every second of this.
I found myself totally involved with the main character.
Equality for women comes in many forms.
I would have liked a little more punch at the climax.
I really enjoyed this book. The book spans from the time the protagonist was a teen to her thirties. The majority of the book uses the format where there is a chapter in the present followed by a chapter in the past. The only reason that I give the story 4 stars is because sometimes it was confusing to know if the story being told was in the past or present. I probably was not paying close enough attention. Based on other people's reviews, I would guess that if you have a strong moral objection to prostitution this book is not for you. The book does not glamorize prostitution or have explicit sexual scenes, but it does play a large part in the protagonist's story. Overall, great book that I could not stop listening to.
