- Plot (see synopsis) is clever, and does not fall into the annoying pitfalls of the "Big Misunderstanding" romance plots.
- Interesting secondary characters, more appealing that the principles. Would've liked to see more of friends Warren & Oliver.
- Heroine's interest in travel and writing a nice way to "show and not just tell" us that she's independent.
-Hero's high voice in narration. Other men in the story have nice deep voices.
-Longer than the plot warrants. A few of the conversations btwn heroine and hero are so similar that I thought I bumped my ipod and was playing an earlier scene.
Bottom line: fun and worth the price...if you can handle the girlie hero voice.
I have this whole series in my Audible library. The poor narration of this book is likely because Ericksen recorded this much earlier in her career (2001, not 2007 as listed above). She likely re-recorded earlier (excellently-narrated) books in the series as the voices in previous books is consistent with later books. Even having read this book, I could not follow the audiobook dialogue since the main character, her police partner, and even her Irish husband have the same voice at times.
Audible has had books re-recorded in the past after listener feedback (eg for Deanna Raybourn's series). You can give feedback via the customer service/help section here. I hope to see a newer version of this book because it's one of the best in the series.
This one isn't worth your Audible credit -- wait for a sale if you need it for the sake of collecting the whole Mallory Saga. This one is painful to hear -- The heroine, Amy Mallory, is a delusional stalker, putting herself in dangerous (and sometimes pathetic) situations because she's decided to marry Warren. (She doesn't know if she loves him, she just "wants him"). She gets away with it b/c he hero can't resist when she presents herself naked. Giving two stars (instead of 1) b/c we do get to revisit Jeremy and the rest of the wonderful Mallory Clan.
Enjoyed this book. More importantly, I learned a lot of tips to improve my focus and decrease procrastination. Excellent narration as well.
