As some other reviewer mentioned, Evanovich's bond enforcer plot, though excellent for a while, had run its course and I agree. I know I returned the last Evanovich book. HOWEVER, this book, though not sure of publishing dates (2012?) vs her other books was truly entertaining and wildly fun and different from anything I've read by her. Loved the concept and characters (Willie the new LuLu? Fox the new Ranger?). And as always, could not find a better narrator than Scott Brick.
Love books!! especially mysteries
This story was entertaining and predictable. Just the right the of story to listen to as I packed and unpacked during my move.
The story is well written - witty, humorous, and well thought out. The con isn't beyond reason. The narration works great with the writing and I found myself instantly liking all the characters. You're going to be buying the whole series after reading any of the books.
Now I see why my male shipmates don't read stuff by female authors - I find it very hard to refrain from using my Sailors four-letter language to describe my emotions while listening to this clap-trap.
Apparently Ms. Evanovich thinks a strong woman must be a frigid woman, because success (we are informed) for a woman lies in the number of orgasms she has, and the crowning achievement lies in owning a husband, a house, kids and a Jack Russell Terrier.
I will say this much for this book - it has reinforced my love for my family who have always supported me and celebrated my achievements, such as promotions and mission accomplishments, without questioning whether or not I am having orgasms.
The only thing I enjoyed listening to in this book was the part where she shared a six-pack of beer and a bucket of KFC with her dad. Until he too brought up the fact that she wasn't getting laid...sigh! At that point I paused the book for a few hours while I went out to get me some chicken.
Lee Goldberg is what keeps me listening - he can make any book enjoyable.
Reads like a family safe television movie. A little adventure, a little (mostly non sexual) romance, a little humor, exotic locations, but no real sense of danger, even when... (no, no spoilers). Armed with a lot of suspension of disbelief as to character behavior, it's a surprisingly entertaining read.
A thin, fluff read - yes. But there is a place for those as well.
I really enjoyed this book! I laughed out loud several times while listening; however, while I like this narrator, I did have trouble distinguishing which character was talking at times. His voice didn't change much between characters. Overall good listen though.
I really enjoyed the book it was a fun listen. the voice actor was amazing like always. I think the books will get better and better the more I read and get to know the characters however it was interesting and fun.
