Just when you think stories couldn't get any better, Stuart Woods produces another one. Woods out did himself on this one, absolutely spellbinding would definitely recommend this to mystery lovers.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
yes as Ms Zackman brings all the colorful characters to life.
This author really knows how to open a story, bring it to full life, and give you an ending that will stay with you.
I loved all of the characters as each was so rich. The two brothers, the Detective (don't miss his explanation about his wife, LOL) James will take your heart. Older sister, who wouldn't want one like her, and of course our heroine, brave!
I didn't understand what the author meant by the title, but the ending brought it all together. Hold on to your hat!
I purchased due to Ms Zackman being the reader. Fabulous job on this book! I own over 100 of her reads as I love her interpretation of an author's works. Her male voices are yummy. Readers' AKA Isabelle Gordon. Enjoy
I listened in one day, and was overwhelmed as the end came just before bedtime. This had it all, thrills, chills, romance and nostalgia. I will seek more of this author if is it is read by a fave reader of mine
Note: use the new 1.25x speed to get the most out of this book. It matches the pace the author intended.
I loved this book because it kept me engaged to the end. character actors were convincing in every thought and was clear and concise.
The book could have been a nonfiction bio of Liz Barwick married life.
The author connected characters and places wonderfully.
For this book, everything was right.
I am from Georgia and the narrator massage my vivid imagination as though I was there in every place.
I have to admit that I'm a total Audible junkie. MUST have book going at all times. I may be the subject of a family intervention someday.
Everything. Read like a Lifetime movie. Flat steroetyped characters, predictable storyline, stiff dialogue.
I don't know - I could swear I read something really good by Woods in the past. This was set in the 80's, and it makes me wonder if it was an early effort.
The heroine was colorless, the detective a monotone, the black characters cliched. Not my favorite reading.
So disappointed. Almost sent it back, wish I hadn't stuck it out. Meh.
The narrator was obnoxious from the very beginning. She has a way of ending 2 out of 3 sentences as though it were a question with this little inflection in her voice. If that weren't bad enough she would talk in this breathy tone at a place in the story where was not warranted and distracted from the story. I won't listen to her again.
Learning about the twins past
A whole new narrator
