Once again a little bit of everything in this story. You get drama, action, romance all in a Christ like environment. These will make you laugh and make you cry.
I think when an author puts out a really, really great series, then goes on to other things, it is just hard not to compare. I love Robyn Carr and I do like this series. It has all the right stuff. Great characters, interesting plots even if slightly predictable. It just isn't virgin river. I know that is wrong of me but sorry I just can't help it.
I purchased this a very long time ago and I can't believe I failed to give a review. This is one of my all time favorite NR stories. NR hit the mark in every way with this one. Great story line, interesting and well formed characters, and the perfect narrator. I have listened to this book at least ten times.
I really have said it all when it comes to the In Death series in all of my previous reviews. So simply put great, love Eve and Roarke, can't wait for the next book.
This was a good first in the series. I did like the series, I feel NR has had better ones but this was in no way her worst work. I did like the characters and the story line was good, the narrator not so much. Had a little trouble with listening to her seemingly "struggle" through.
I have listened to the O'Malley stories numerous times and purchased the set of paperbacks for my mother. This is a great short story in the continuation of that series. Anyone who has read these books will know this story is a prequel to the series BUT I can't emphasize enough that Ms Henderson put it right where it belonged. It really NEEDS to be read after you read the series. I truly hope she comes out with a "ten years later" or something type story about this family, I would eagerly snap it up.
I really like this series and have read them all. I was glad to see them come out on audio. These books may never get critical acclaim, but Shelly Laurenston has taken a red hot genre, put her own spin on it and what makes this series work is her great sense of humor. She has developed crazy, interesting characters that you just have to love, laugh at and laugh with. Beast Behaving Badly is my ALL time favorite of all the stories. Once you have read this you will never look at wearing a watch in quite the same way. This narrator was well suited for the story. GREAT JOB Ms Laurenston.
First time into the steampunk genre but I loved this book. Great story line and the narrater was superb. Will be getting next one asap.
What more can be said after 37 books with each one a superb story with the very best narrater for these stories. I feel like I KNOW every "person" in these books. I can actually see them as I listen. I can not say enough about Nora Roberts and these books but also Susan Ericksen who has brought not only Eve and Roarke to life, but Mavis, Somerset, Charles, Feeney, Tibble, Dr.Meara, not to mention Peabody and McNabb, oh and Crack and Nadine. These people are so real I just can't wait to hear what happens next, They all have such individual personalities and the voices OMG great. great. great, I laugh, I cry, I smirk, I feel joy and sadness with them all. I have listened to this series multiple times and will continue to do so. These characters touch my soul,
Here again a great story with well thought out plot. Loved the narrater, and the fact she used someone else for this second in the series. Sometimes you need the same narrator but with this it works. I liked the first book but this one was even better. I don't see a third??? Hope there is a story for each of the four remaining brothers coming soon.
I liked this first book in the series. I have read a lot of romantic suspense and I think the thing I really liked about it was the author has strong male characters with dangerous occupations and ex military backgrounds and portrayed them as such without every other word being a cuss word or f...ing this and f...ing that. These guys were believeable and very male and dominant guys wothout being crude. My hats off to you Robin P. The narrator was good and I liked the storyline. I will get the next story right away to see which brother is the lead character.
