I must say that I love, adore many of the Jayne Anne Krentz Books, but I found myself cringing while listening to this story or falling asleep to "The Lost Night". I typically adore the paranormal in Jayne's stories. I also enjoy the plot replayed over and over again -- that of two powerful talents finding each other. I have not managed to finish listening to this title though I've managed to fly solo to the USA and back to Sweden and take a 11 hour train trip within Sweden... again, solo (meaning no children to watch at the time). I simply must not be a Harmony fan. It is a pity. This was my first audible listen, and a treat to myself. But it one that I could not manage.
I don't know how to be fair to Joyce Bean in this review. After-all, she portrays the messenger in this dynamic. I had a super difficult time enjoying her voice when listening about Harry Sebastian. I cannot distinguish if this is because Harry's lines were simply not pleasing for me to hear or if it were the portrayal of the lines.
I found this title by Elizabeth Peters because I was looking for another novel read by Barbara Rosenblat. I enjoyed Barbara's portrayal of all the characters in the Amelia Peabody book that I think I find myself quoting the book. If you love a gentle mystery, snatch this right up. Thank you to both Elizabeth Peters and Barbara Rosenblat for a lively story.
What is there not to love about this story? I truly enjoy the performance by Jennifer Ikeda. I sometimes get lost in the flowery descriptions by Deborah Harkness... but thankfully audible has a 30s back space so to speak. I used it so often with this story, because I had to hear it again. I finished the story today and I will buy the 2nd book immediately! Thank you Deborah Harkness & Jennifer Ikeda!! Thank you audible. Love it!
