    Loyal. Beautiful. Professional. Impeccably organized. Potentially lethal. Sarah Stevens is a woman with many distinct qualities. First and foremost a butler par excellence, skilled at running large households smoothly and efficiently, she is also a trained bodyguard and expert marksman - indispensable to her elderly employer, a courtly gentleman Sarah has come to respect and love. But her perfectly ordered life is shattered when tragedy strikes.

    "Pretty Good Book"
    Overall

    I have never read (or listened) to any of Linda Howard's books. I think this was a pretty good book for the most part. I must say she did a really good job of taking readers inside the head of the villain. That dude was beyond wacko. Very convincing.

    I had issues with the manner in which the romance unfolded. It didn't seem very natural to me but it's just my opinion. In spite of it the book on a whole was good. I really liked the main character, Sarah.

    If nothing else it was an entertaining book.

    Story

    I wasn't sure about this book. I avoided like the plague for more than a year since. I finally gave in and thought it to be a really good story. I would have liked the characters to develop more and what the author lacked there she made up for it brilliantly by other aspects of the book. I liked learning about the psy world and how the psy network functioned. It was a pretty clever storyline. Keeping up with series just to meet new characters will be worth it in my opinion.

    All in all a good story. Hopefully the rest of the books in the series will be as enjoyable.

    Lastly, Angela Dawe-as I expected-gave a fine narration.

    Story

    This was a pretty good story. The characters kept things interesting. I suppose if I had to pick something to critique, it would be my issue with many novels and not this one specifically. It is the fact that people fall in love way too quickly. Admittedly, when it is centered around a respectable storyline it does help. It was also the first Novak novel for me. Having it read by Angela Dawe is a plus as she is one of my favorite narrators. I will definitely be getting Book 2 and Book 3 whenever it's released.

    Since she was a little girl, Emma Grant has always loved romance. So it's really no surprise that she has found her calling as a wedding florist. She couldn't ask for a better job. And on the surface, Emma's love life seems to be thriving. Though men swarm around her, she still hasn't found Mr. Right. The last place she's looking is right under her nose. But that's just where Jack Cooke is.

    "Favorite Story of the Quartet-No Spoilers"
    Overall

    There are various parts of each of the quartet stories that I like but as a whole-an entire project if you will-Emma and Jack's story is my favorite. Which is kind of weird because Parker is my favorite character of the lot. Anyway, the whole quartet as a story idea is pretty neat and makes for nice fun reading. It's good if you just want to relax and laugh and have an all around good read without expecting it to be terribly deep. If you're looking for more deep or mystery related Nora Roberts these aren't the ones to read. If however, you want something enjoyable, different, and arguably with a bit of fluff then give the quartet a shot.

    Also, I have listened to other books narrated by Angela Dawe. That lady is talented and has a knack for changing character voices without flaw. I find myself now looking for books narrated by Dawe. She's that good...in my opinion. Too bad she didn't narrate the entire quartet series but 3 out of 4 is still pretty good.

    One cold November night when Kat Kominski was 15 years old, she and some friends held up a convenience store. In the heat of the moment, one of the others shot and killed an off-duty cop moonlighting as a security guard. Kat and her pals fled the scene in a panic, and no one was caught. Thirteen years later, Kat - now Kate White - has built a new life for herself. Now a single mom with a nine-year-old son, she works as a prosecutor in the Philadelphia DA's office. But her dark past returns to haunt her.

    Overall

    This is the first KR book I've had an issue with. Don't get me wrong, I liked what I read in the synopsis but I found Kate...annoying.

    The story definitely had potential but she was too emotional and irrational. As an attorney you'd think she'd know better but I suppose when you're in the thick of things your mind won't process the same way.

    Kudos to Joyce Bean for an excellent narration!
