I listened to it on fast just to get it over with. The characters weren't at all believable to me. Also, yeah, you figure out who done it pretty quick. I think Nora just fell off my auto buy list.
I have already listened to it 3 times. Even knowing the ending, The way the story twists and turns makes me want to listen again and again!
The love story between Abra and Eli.
Hester - Grandmother to Eli.
I wish I could have listened in one sitting. Listened to some at work - hated it when someone would ask a question and I had to pause the book.
Totally addicted to Audible.
I won't disagree that this is not Nora Roberts' best but I always enjoy characters that overcome their circumstances. Narrator was not my favorite but not detracting either.
Basically it's unbelievable. Roberts must have had a great massage and thought describing it was enough. Characters not interesting.
No, but narration was Ok . You can't do much with a boring book
happily ever afters
The story could easily have been told in 10 hours by a better narrator.
Far too much was said/done that didn't propel the story forward in a timely manner.
Wouldn't you know one of the few times I find a male narrator who can successfully pull off a female voice is a dud as a hero. Where are James Daniels, Jack Garrett, Steve West & Dennis Boutsikaris when you need them?
While several scenes differed in setting, their purpose ended in the same results - more of the same. Thereby the story didn't progress fast enough.
A good audio book has me glued to my audio device, absolutely can't miss a word. Meaning I've got to stop/start & some times back up because our home sweet home runs like Grand Central Station. But when I can leave the room for a snack or prepare for bed, including an arsenal of miracle promising potions, while the book plays on and on, return to discover I haven't missed a thing, then this isn't a good story.
Unable to listen to the unabridged version would not download. had to spend extra to purchase abridged version
Narrator did a FANTASTIC job with the voices. Author revealed villann in an unexpectant way. Wish the villan would have been revealed in a different way (maybe the main character discovering the villan). The woman the main character hooks up with is over the top essentric (a little too much) and a little unrealistic. Overall, the book was a great mystery / thriller.
The performance was enjoyable on this one. The "who done it" "clue" nature of thecstory was unexpected, but nice since that is what kept me interested . i was expecting a little more loving and a lot more sex, but after about chapter 10 became intertwined with finding out the truth. The ending felt a little lazy, but after so much character development I was okay with thatvtoo. overall pretty good read .
A very good read/listen. I've listened to the audiobook several times and keep enjoying it. Like the twist at the end. Always look forward to a Nora Roberts book
