    Ellis, the American. Jean-Pierre, the Frenchman.... They were two men on opposite sides of the cold war, with a woman torn between them. Together, they formed a triangle of passion and deception, racing from terrorist bombs in Paris to the violence and intrigue of Afghanistan - and on to the moment of truth and a deadly decision for all of them.

    Daniel Mcafee says: "Good, but the multiple voice reading was poor"
    "Fantastic!"
    Overall

    I first read this book several years ago and although there is a new war in Afghanistan this book still holds it's own. The multi-voice narration is very well done and the pacing is quick. I highly recommend this audio book.

    Clare and Henry have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was 36. They were married when Clare was 23 and Henry was 31. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future. His disappearances are spontaneous, his experiences unpredictable, alternately harrowing and amusing.

    Scott says: "Epic Drama & Love Story through Time Travel"
    "Clever and intriguing"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this book overall. The time travel angle was unique and new and utterly believable. Clare and Henry were both people I liked for the most part and I truly enjoyed the literary references throughout the book. I agree with a previous reviewer that the use of the C word was jarring and took me out of the story each time I heard it.

    I also struggled with the last quarter of the book. The very end was lovely and up lifting, but the last quarter before that was noticeably different in tone than the first 3/4 of the book and felt awkward and unnecessarily negative and dark.

    Overall I enjoyed it and would recommend it - with a warning.

    After she double-crosses her lover, a ruthless crime lord, Drea must flee from a relentless assassin who ultimately succeeds in killing her. But after a very brief death, Drea returns to life a changed woman: no longer selfish and cruel, determined to bring down the ones who marked her for death. Joining forces with the FBI, little does she suspect that the man she will come to love is the same assassin who took her life.

    Diana says: "All that I expected and more"
    "A good listen"
    Overall

    I really like both this author and this narrator. The book is not my favorite of Linda Howard's, however I really enjoyed it. The emotional punch was strong and it did a great job of creating characters I wanted to know.

    Sled dog racer Jessie Arnold stars in a series that's "suspenseful, intelligent, and filled with the spectacular beauty of the northern wilds" (Dallas Morning News). Her friends, Laurie and Jim, have acquired their dream, an old lighthouse on the Alaskan Inside Passage, and invited everyone to a party. Not a party in the typical sense, but one where guests earn their keep by restoring the old building.

    I am a huge Sue Henry fan and have both read and listened to all of her previous books, both the Jessie Arnold/Alex Jensen mysteries and the Maxie McNabb mysteries. All previous audiobooks have been recorded by one narrator- not the narrator of this audiobook. Having a new voice with this book was jarring. Additionally, the narration was not at all smooth. She was reading a book, like I would read aloud to my children. She wasn't bringing the story alive. There was often emphasis in wrong parts of the sentences which jerked me out of the story and made me newly aware of the narrator. She also varied between pronouncing the name Knapp with a hard K and with a silent K. Similarly she did not familiarize herself with the correct pronunciation of some of the Alaskan place names. I was so excited to finally find a Sue Henry on audible.com, but I had a hard time finishing it.
