The characters were good. The murder mystery had good twists and turns. There was plenty of story and it wasn't overtaken by romance.
The bomb and who did it.
I wouldn't seek her out but I wouldn't avoid a book because she narrated. She did well differentiating the voices.
Yes. It had twists and turns.
I think there are many people that might like this book. For me it was like a B movie. The dialogue seemed forced for lack of a better term.
No. I seldom recommend books that are less than a 4 or 4 1/2 and or I have listened to multiple times.
He was fine with the male voices but not the female voices. He seemed very robotic too. I am not sure for a narrator.
I did finish it and the ending was happy so, there is that.....
I gave the story 3 even though it was not near as good as other 3s because I finished it, so I didn't want to give it 2s across.
The narrator wasn't bad but, she made following some of the story difficult.
I bought two at a sale. I won't listen to the other right away.

There were a couple of annoying characters voice etc. but I guess they were necessary.
I skipped parts of this book. I may try it again another time.
The plot and twists were good, not great but good. The characters don't draw you in or make you care more than a little. The characters do grow on you.
No, probably not. Some people will like this book.
The voices were not great. The main characters are female and the narrator did not do them well. I think a different narrator would have made the book better.
No and no.
Some people will like this book. It has a decent mystery. I think the narration ruined the story for me. It could have been a 3 1/2 *
The interaction between Dallas and Rourke
The relationship with Roarke is one to be envied, of course fiction.
First, I think there are people that will like this book. When I say blame I mean they think it is one person and then another and on and on. Another farce that doesn't make sense, a father abandons a child, spends a fortune to watch over him but not help with money, school or care when the child's mother dies. Have another child soon after and give her the world. His stepsister tells him it was to protect him because he loved him. That doesn't make since. He could have taken him with him and his stepsister. This theme is essential to the story so it persists to be irritating.
I don't know. I haven't liked the last several books. I wish there were more historical fiction (paranormal, romance drama, murder) Not just romantic historical fiction, those are too predictable.
I have a few favorites that do male, female and accents exceptionally. Jennifer Ikeda, Tavia Gilbert and Kristin Potter.When she is the narrator she is good, her accents are okay, Elena okay, Miles okay but, one of the main characters Trask is terrible. I thought Trask was a girl until they stated Trask is a male.
The premise was okay. It was a little beat into the ground that you can't trust anyone. Everyone is blaming everyone else for her father's murder. It goes on and on.
I believe there are people who will like this book. I couldn't finish it. I will try again another time. In the books defense, right now if a book doesn't capture my interest in the first three chapters I will hang in there a little and quit.
The premise was good and characters. The narrator was good, his women's voices were not. The execution just made it hard to finish. I wouldn't recommend it. It was very predictable the whole way through.
This was the only one.
There were some. Probably the scene where he saves the day.
Hard to say.
Predictable all the way through. The characters were good and the story was easy to follow.
Read Ann's review it has the detail and I agree with it.
It was pretty predictable and seemed much like the first book. It was inundated with Catholic religion, suffocating.
Not the genre but, I don't think I will try another of her books.
Jennifer Ikeda, Tavia Gilbert
There is no one character that would help the book if they were cut.
I gave it two stars because I finished it.
I would try another Catherine Coulter because I have read a couple that were good. This was not. The whole thing was about using a ghost to have sex with men so the main character wouldn't have to, convoluted too. Her rescuer, prince charming tricks her into marriage and repeatedly forces her to have sex.
I will read the plot and reviews more thoroughly.
No, her voice was somewhat shrill for me and she did not differentiate between characters enough.
I am not sure, the majority were not like able and somewhat evil.The best character was a very minor character, Sinjin.
I bought two of her books at the same time. So I will try the other book, Cold Blooded.I would not seek out either one again.
The beginning was slow. The two main characters were not that comp ailing. Towards the ending she makes everyone look suspicious, trying to create suspense I guess.Main frustrations were that as soon as police believed the murderer was after the phone shrink they would have taped her office phone, house, and cell. They would have had a tail following her day and night, he was a serial killer. It would be the best way to catch him. They would have investigated the few office people completely. One had to be linked as there were only a few with access in and to a particular phone. These things made it ridiculous.
She did not differentiate between voices well at all and her male voices were poor.
A plausible story.
I am half way through Cold Blooded and it is no better. It is much the same as the first. I think she wanted to do a romance with some action or drama. The problem being if you are going to do that you have to think the story through.
I gave it the stars I did because I was able to finish it. So many I can't.
