Sandra Brown is an experienced author with proven ability in pacing and story building. This work is sometimes slow, sometimes quick, always empathetic, and indomitable in its rise to its conclusion. Although its subject matter is not pretty, she makes no apologies and declines to take captive either her characters or her readers. Breath of Scandal is worthy of her craft. It's a well-written story to which I would have assigned a rating of four stars and no review without a second thought except for the exceptional quality and sensitivity of Dick Hill's narration. His talent for character interpretation, for acting each character's words and actions with care, believability, and consistancy, and his ability to understand and express the building emotion and drama of this story through only the instrument of voice deserves acknowlegment. Mr. Hill's narration was outstanding. For me, he single-handedly raised my rating of a solid Sandra Brown novel from a four to a five and prompted this review -- my first, by the way. Thank you, Mr. Hill. Narrators of your caliber are very, very hard to find. I sincerely hope this review finds its way to you and that others share my appreciation of your talent.
