This is the first book in a series with each book a great stand alone. The author creates great storylines along with sidebars of humorous home repair perils. Makes me want to visit up north!
The way the story grabs you and throws you back in time and keeps you there. I found myself loving some of the old catch phrases from "back in the day"..."Hey Mamma!" I love the character development and evolvement. At times the story had me so involved I got angry at certain characters and wanted yell.....Simply put Karin Slaughter can take me to 1970's era Atlanta GA anytime and it is always a great trip!
The time and place setting for the storyline. It was like getting in the TARDIS with Doctor Who and going back to 1970 in the deep "at times ugly" south. I grew up in this place and time so I can tell you she got it just right.
Yes. The author can write a great book but if the person reading it isn't talented, it can turn the book to poo. Kathleen Early takes a good book and turns it into a great book and a treat to enjoy. However this time she took a great book and made it supreme.
Policewoman in Atlanta during the early 70's
Simply put, it's a great read (listen). If you have enjoyed the William Trent series, you will love this book.
This book has a little something for everyone. Ghosts, suspense, dirty politicians, cults, Nazi want to be groups, sex, romance, murder and feel good family reunions.....
Yes, I would recommend it to anyone that likes romantic mysteries and supernatural suspense
Great story. The book kept my attention from the beginning to the end. Love this series but the author really went the extra mile with this one.
I enjoyed the "puzzle" within the story, the review of history for the main character and the way it was all tied up in the end.
BY THE WAY....SPOILERS......SO HAPPY with how this book ended. I for one have been waiting for this to happen in the storyline for a long time. Great way to bring it about.
Very touching.....I laughed....then I cried (with joy) for Goldie.
Perhaps this is comparable to the book (can't remember the title of the specific book in the series) in which Goldie's first husband the JeRK was murdered.
Toss up between Marla and Goldie. Love em both.
The end. SPOILERS.....the end was such a wonderful surprise and sweet gift the author gave us. Such a great way to end the story.
Read it or listen to it especially if you have read prior books in the series. This is the BEST one thus far. Thank you Diane Mott-Davidson for this one!
Have not read the written edition of this book.
An interesting assortment of characters. I liked that the main character is from the south and she is proud of her southern roots. She is smart and sassy with a taste for chocolate.
When Savanna pretends to be a drunk woman looking for her cheating boyfriend as a ploy to get into the apartment of an escaped prisoner.
Southern comfort meets southern California
Looking forward to character development and meeting all of Savanna's family.
Dallas, Roake, Fireworks
It is hard to answer this because I have listened to this book so many times! I have either listened to or read all books in this series and I go back to this book and listen to it so I can compare the characters started out and how they have evolved. As I recall yes, the first time I read (listened) to this book, I was unsure what was going to happen next.
I can not imagine listening to a book in this series without her reading it! She is great. I have listened to other books she has read and she one of my favorite readers/performers.
The first time Eve and Roake met...you could just tell that there were gonna be fireworks between them.
GREAT book, great series. Nora Roberts aka J.D. Robb has taken two characters and given them friends, family, and built a future world we are all able to see through their eyes.
As the director of a clinical research company, I don't have time to read for pleasure. I listen to audio books while traveling either by auto, plane or train. For this reason, I am unable to compare a written version to an audio version.
The vivid description of how women were treated in the workplace back in the 1970's and especially in the south, in an all male workforce was great. I really felt as if I were taken back in time. I live close to Atlanta so all the landmarks and politics were spot on. I was told stories of how businesses were back then and this book really does tell it how it was. Also, I thought this book brought much needed background to the Will Trent chacracter. It was a book I didn't want to end. I could have listened to ten more hours......maybe more,
I was so pleased to see that Will could find happiness with Sarah. Both are loveable and deserved to find one another. Hate to say it but the next book should be about Will investigating his wifes murder.....I think that will be the only way he will be able to let go of the pain she continues to cause.
PLEASE WRITE MORE BOOKS WITH WILL TRENT, SARAH LINTON, FAITH MITCHELL AND AMANDA WAGNER IN THEM.....PLEASE
