    Sadie Nettleton fled Slaughter Creek ten years ago, leaving behind the only home she’d ever known - and the only man she ever loved. Unable to cope with her sister's madness, or the terrible secret she and her sister share, Sadie swore never to return. But when her grandfather is murdered, and her sister charged with the crime, Sadie has no choice but to come back and face the ghosts of the past... For Sheriff Jake Blackwood, time has not dimmed the love he felt for Sadie Nettleton - or the pain of her leaving.

    What disappointed you about Dying to Tell?

    Soooo much angst. The same thing repeated over and over. If you insist on reading this, just read the 1st two chapters and the last 3 and you'll get to keep the hours you would have spent on the whole book. How many times do we have to have the female characters kidnapped or drugged or attacked or helpless. Don't waste your time. I feel for the narrator.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Almost anything else.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narration was fine.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Frustration.

    Bowen MacRieve of the Lykae clan was nearly destroyed when he lost the one woman meant for him. The ruthless warrior grew even colder, never taking another to his bed - until a smoldering encounter with his enemy, Mariketa the Awaited, reawakens his darkest desires. When sinister forces unite against her, the Highlander finds himself using all his strength and skill to keep her alive. Temporarily stripped of her powers, Mari is forced to take refuge with her sworn adversary. Soon passion burns between them.

    Would you try another book from Kresley Cole and/or Robert Petkoff?

    No to Cole. Narrator was fine.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kresley Cole again?

    Don't think so.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Wicked Deeds on a Winter's Night?

    Too many to name.


    Any additional comments?

    Hours and hours of sniping, bitching, whining. While there was a plot buried in here, entirely too much time was spent with this juvenile dialog. Author seems to want us to believe this heroine is brave and resourceful and that the hero is proud of her. What came across to me was hours of spite, selfishness, willfulness. So may the juvenile dialog actually fits. Waste of time.

    Here's a suspense-filled romantic thriller that features a plot to destroy a critical U.S. target. To find the fugitive who can stop this attack, an undercover agent shadows a search-and-rescue specialist and her dog combing Minnesota's North Woods. But foul fiends are also on the hunt.

    Not likely


    What three words best describe Julia Gibson’s performance?

    Juvenile, Unrealistic, Silly


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Frustration


    Any additional comments?

    The 'heroine' of the story was the least Christian. It's a constant struggle to fine writers who don't feed they must make women either weak or unreasonable, or either subserviant or selfish. I wonder if the author is 15 or is writing for a target group of 15 year olds.
