    This is the 2nd book by Kate Morton that I have listened to. Pretty good story...maybe just a tad bit long. Caroline Lee's narration is enjoyable to listen to.

    Granted, this is only the 3rd that I have listened to in this series, but to me it was the best. I really have become attached to these characters and I owe it all to George Guidall. This story had me laughing out loud, anxious, sad, curious, excited...all the things I want a good story to make me feel & do.

    Really enjoying this series...too bad it took me so long to find them. George Guidall is Great! I don't think that I would have enjoyed this series as much if I had read the written word as opposed to listening. Mr. Guidall nails each character for me. Thanks!

    Don Tillman, professor of genetics, has never been on a second date. So when an acquaintance informs him that he would make a "wonderful" husband, his first reaction is shock. Yet he must concede to the statistical probability that there is someone for everyone, and Don sets out to find the perfect partner. She will be punctual and logical - most definitely not a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker, or a late-arriver. Yet Rosie Jarman is all these things. She is also beguiling, fiery, intelligent - and on a quest of her own....

    I bought the kindle edition at discounted price. Tried to read it, but it was just not clicking for me so I thought I would take a chance on the audible version, also at discounted price since I had the kindle version (btw...I so enjoy this feature). So glad I took the chance! The story was laugh out loud funny at parts. The narrator was the key for me. His delivery was great. If you are hesitant about this one, take the chance...Hopefully you will enjoy it as much as I did.

    Will Robie may have just made the first - and last - mistake of his career.... It begins with a hit gone wrong. Robie is dispatched to eliminate a target unusually close to home in Washington, D.C. But something about this mission doesn't seem right to Robie, and he does the unthinkable: He refuses to kill. Now, Robie becomes a target himself and must escape from his own people.

    Fleeing the scene, Robie crosses paths with a wayward teenage girl, a 14-year-old runaway from a foster home. But she isn't an ordinary runaway....

    I listened to the whole story....I liked it but I didn't. Maybe I just didn't find the story as gripping as other reviewers. I always enjoy multiple narrators. I feel they bring so much more to my listening experience.
