This great book is a follow up to a novel by the same author named 'After Tex' which is also a really excellent book.
This story is sweet and fun and brings in a bunch of good characters from the earlier mentioned book. All are well developed with interesting personalities and stories. All contribute to the main story line which centers around a precocious 3 year old named Angel and her parents.
Great story and great finish.
I am so happy to have discovered this mystery series at Audible. This second book in the series was as much or more interesting than the first. Great characters in a powerful and fascinating story. I look forward to listening to more books from this excellent author.
I really loved everything about this book except the narration. There was so much whispering and since I didn't read the written version I don't know if that was the author's intent, but for me it ruined the experience.
As I said, the story itself was excellent as I expect from Garwood. The characters were fun and well developed.
If the narration doesn't bother you, it's worth your time.
After listening to three of her books, I am a solid Tana French fan, but this book was way past amazing. For a mystery to captivate all the way and then leave you completely satisfied even though you are left to make your own decision about the whole story, showcases a fantastic talent and that is Tana French.
Nothing small about Heather O'Neill's performance either.
Both talented people have contributed to what in my opinion is one of the all time best books in my library.
This was a fun book though I felt the narrator was a little over the top at times. I did lose count of how many bodies piled up. There were quite a few.
For a western, it was just about right. There was very little sex which is fine, but I would suggest Mr. Rhodes avoids anything even close to sex because his approach is a little hokey.
I have one word for this series FANTASTIC!
This book was a perfect finish from one of the best mystery series I have listened to.
Throughout the entire series the characters played perfect parts in really well written stories.
This goes on my list of books to listen to again.
I confess I bought this book primarily because it was narrated by Simon Prebble. His narrations can make great entertainment from even mediocre stories. This, however was not mediocre. It was in fact a well written mystery with a number of surprising twists.
I recommend it as worth the time and credit.
I have enjoyed several of Ms. Putney's historical romances, and this one did not disappoint. It was rather a unique story line, but she made it work well with interesting and entertaining characters.
Simon Prebble as usual is a great narrator.
I couldn't turn it off. This book held my interest from start to finish. It is actually stories compounded and each level develops the characters more and more. Once again Mary Jo Putney has created a great love story without overdone sex, but instead with great story telling.
I am not usually that excited about male narators for romance novels, but Mr. Page does a good job.
I found it hard to accept the characters in this story. They kept going round and round with unrealistic emotions. He is totally selfish and unwilling to accept responsibility for his mistakes most of the story then suddenly becomes a golden boy. She is a doormat and suddenly becomes a lioness. Unrealistic.
As usual Ms. Putney has produced an excellent historical novel with good strong characters and an interesting believable story. Even these are romance novels, the romance doesn't overwhelm the story.
MacKensey is a realistic hero who never steps out of reality but functions with all the faults of a real guy.
Mr. Reynols is not Simon Prebble, but his narration is decent.
