After listening to, and really enjoying, "Envy" by Sandra Brown, I thought I would try this book. I reserve five stars for those books that I would definitely listen to again. This is one of those books. Both the story and the narrator kept me listening to the point where I hated to stop. I did not find the outcome to be predictable. I will definitely be looking for more of this author's work.
I found the plot to be predictable and the story seemed to go on forever. There was much that could have been deleted without really changing the plot. I got incredibly tired of hearing how the H had "always loved Franny".
No. There are so many books and so little time. I would prefer to read/listen to those I enjoy more. For this genre, I will stick with Julia Quinn, Julie Ann Long, Sarah MacLean, etc.
Antony Ferguson was fine. Susan Ericksen had a breathy, overly dramatic presentation that I did not enjoy.
I generally enjoy Nora Roberts' work but found this one to be not quite as interesting/entertaining as usual. While I recognize the characters were fire jumpers, it seemed as though there was an excess of fire jumping in the story--when not actually jumping, the characters frequently were ruminating about jumping. It seemed more like filler than something that actually added to the story. The narrator wasn't bad but for the fact that male characters were distinguished by a kind of nasally tone, similar to a person with a cold or sinus infection. The ending was predictable--there was no real "who done it?" aspect to this story for me. Thus, an O.K. listen, but not something I will listen to again.
