This is a simplistic religious novel. Because the publisher's summary does not disclose its religious bent, it masquerades as a romantic Christmas story. I will not buy another audio book without googling the author.
The author narrated this book. There is only one word for her performance: AWFUL!!!! A talented narrator would have improved this audio book 100%. Don't know if a change in narrator would have made this audio book at 4 or 5, however. The story was banal.
I won't buy anymore books by this author.
She does a poor job of narrating. All the characters sound the same and her delivery is very poor.
Disappointment and irritation..
I would change the narrator.
The narrator spoiled this book. Bebe (with long a's)--the main character's best friend from the first Savannah book--became BEE BEE. The characters in this southern book did not have southern accents...not even poor ones. All the male characters sounded alike and female characters did not have consistent voices. I would love to buy more Mary Kay Andrew's audio books, but not when Ms. Keating is the narrator.
I could not enjoy the story of this book because the narration was so poor.
I loved Savannah Blues and was excited to find this sequel. Unfortunately, I did not believe the narrator reviews. Does the author have no input on who narrates her stories. Can't believe, if she did, that Ms. Keating would have narrated so many of her books.
I have thoroughly enjoyed several of Baldacci's books. I would listen to one of his books again.
acceptable, average, OK
I would find a much better way to bring the two plots in the book together. The story of a 14 year old girl and an assassin for the U.S. government, main characters in separate murder plots, who meet on a bus is an intruging one. Unfortunately, the explanation for the converging plots is not believable and stretches the reader's suspension of disbelief too far to be enjoyed.
This one is a waste of time and money.
