Yes. I really enjoy the humor in Brockmann's series. My favorite pairing (Locke and Starrett) are at their best in this one and I recommend it to any Alyssa/Sam fan!
Humor, sexy banter between characters. Storyline was so-so, but I can overlook it since I enjoy the couples in this one so much. I thought that the narrator was excellent and am dismayed that she hasn't done many of the others as well.
I think she does them all well. I'm really hard-pressed to pick a fave.
Yes. I love books that contain relationships between people from different races/backgrounds. Brockmann's series is definitely entertaining. My favorite pairing is Alyssa and Sam, but there are some other good ones throughout as well. Although this title wasn't my favorite in the series (I was greatly amused by the love/hate banter between Alyssa and Sam in past works), Brockmann writes an entertaining story with a good balance of sexy romance and suspenseful adventure.
Not at the 'edge of my seat', but I didn't really expect that going into the series in the first place. She does seem to know a good deal about the military life and it was an exciting listen...
Deborah Hazlett for female narration for sure! As for the male...oh, I don't know....anyone other than the one who did this one?! I felt that the emotions that the narrators were trying to convey were terribly forced and I didn't care for the lack of 'smoothness' in their delivery..sorry.
Just had an extreme reaction to the narration...akin to nails on a chalkboard...again, sorry.
Yes. I felt that the narration was very good. The story was what I would expect from Koontz.
Yes. The plot delivers the intensity that the title promises....Very hard to stop listening to with lots of description that brings out the absolute evil in the villain and courage in the heroine.
She reads well and has a pleasant voice. Her inflections were well-timed and her characters distinct. With audiobooks, I find that some female narrators have difficulty reading male characters, but Ms. Burton did a very good job with this. I was very entertained and engrossed in this audiobook. I always appreciate a talented narrator who shows great acting ability through their storytelling.
This novel was well written and very engaging. The author does an excellent job in taking you through the two generations of familial history and culture with characters that are very real. Full of humor and insight, this was definitely a must read. Can't wait to see more of this talent.
In a nutshell, for anyone who may be wrongfully misguided as to what the mysterious and unique method of parenting this author is wanting to reveal, this book is nothing more than the author's guilty feelings of abandoning her children and husband after going to a retreat to "find herself". Welcome to adulthood, parenthood and real life! This book was such a waste of time and energy as it will only have any responsible mother and wife cringing in disbelief and exasperation at this selfish woman who throws out excuse after excuse for not wanting to raise her children.
