Terrific story and great narrator! Ive enjoyed all the books in this series, but this is the best. Many twists and turns.
This book will keep you up at night after reading it. Milla Edge has made it her lifes quest to find stolen children after her own was stolen. Have a box of kleenex handy and maybe a bottle of tums while listening to this book.
This is a sweet love story with really hot love scenes. Wasn't thrilled with the narrator. She sounds like she's trying to talk without moving her lips! I found that very distracting, but after the first half of the book I got used to it.
I read book 3 before I read this book(book 1). If I had read this book first, I would not have read any of the rest of this trilogy. In this story, the male love interest, Gabe, does everything we are warned about watching out for in someone we, or our friends, daughters, or any women are warned to watch out for. I had a really icky feeling in my stomach thru most of this book. I don't care how much a woman thinks she loves a man. No one should ever think its ok for a man to treat her like Gabe treated Mia thru 80 % of this book. I would personally, never have been able to look at myself in the mirror if I had allowed someone to treat me this way. And what is it with rectal sex? Would a straight man think it arousing to have to walk around with a plug stuck up their butt while they were at work? I just don't get it! All I can think about during those segments of the story is how un-hygienic this is and all the medical issues that can happen. Most of the treatment of Mia by Gabe would make alarm bells go off in the minds of most women. I found it unbelievable that any woman would sign a contract such as the one that Gabe supposedly insisted all his women sign! Maya Banks books usually portray strong women but boy this one really missed the mark.
I am listening to this series again for the fourth or fifth time and each time I learn something that I didn't hear the previous times. The stories are amazing. Full of history and emotion that takes the reader right into the story. I can't wait to someday go to Scotland and see the many geographical sites that are sprinkled throughout the story. I can see, in my minds eye, the characters so clearly as described by Diana Gabaldon. Davina Porter is wonderful as the narrator. She has a way of doing the voices of the different characters that makes them feel so real. Her accents are great!
I have listened to well over a thousand books and would have to say that this series is by far, my very very favorite. If I could only have had history teachers that could have brought history alive like these books I would have never found history boring. Do yourself a favor and listen to these books, in order.
this was the best nora roberts story I can remember. So many twists and turns and the narrator was the BEST! She sounds like the way I would have expected the character to be and had a way of using inflections that could be so funny when doing herself as a person with a genius IQ but no life experience, doing Brooks or any of the other unique characters in the main small town the story takes plalce in. I would recommend this story to anyone. It's got something for everyone.
The preview for this book sounded really interesting and I was so looking forward to listening to it but I was so disappointed but determined. I re-listened to sections repeatedly trying to see if it would make more sense. I don't mind books that go back and forth between the present and past but with this one I couldn't tell which was which half the time. The reader didn't make the different characters at all easy to tell who was who. All the scientific retoric was way over the heads of 90% of most readers and I have a masters degree. I stuck it out and finished it but I definately wouldn't recommend this book to anyone.
Kept waiting for something to happen that would make the story one that would make me not want to turn it off. Alas, it was not to be. Save your credit
