    Ten months ago, Elizabeth Baker uncovered a dangerous secret about her politician husband - a secret that nearly got her killed. Now she and her children are running for their lives. When Beth is hired as the caretaker of a remote Pennsylvania estate, she dares to hope she has found a corner of the world where Congressman Richard Baker can’t find them. But when her new boss dies suddenly and his nephew inherits the estate, Beth is faced with outwitting a former homicide detective who is very smart, very suspicious - and very attractive.

    Deeadra says: "Good story. Horrible, horrible narrator."
    "This book sounds like it was read by a computer!"

    Would you try another book from Melinda Leigh and/or Amy Rubinate?

    Melinda Leigh, not sure. Amy Rubinate - No! I listened to the first five minutes and I couldn't go any further. Amy Rubinate seems to be a talented voice actress, I googled her and listened to a demo reel. But it really sounds like they sampled her voice and then used a speech synthesizer to read the book. Each sentence has the same ... inflection, cadence... it sounds very robotic.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Melinda Leigh again?

    Depends on who narrates the book.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I'm fairly forgiving as a listener, but this is the worst narration I've ever heard.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from She Can Run?

    Never got that far.
