Audible Editor Reviews

Safe Harbor is a lesbian romance and the first of seven stories in the Provincetown series.

Narrated with breathy uplift by Nicol Zanzarella, we follow Provincetown’s new deputy sheriff, Reese Conlon, a tough, smart, beautiful, and suddenly available woman. Sherrif Conlon’s swagger puts the women of Provincetown in a tizzy, but it is the brilliant Dr. Victoria "Tory" King who ultimately wins her affections. Yet the flame of new love is often at its brightest right before it flickers and dwindles down to nothing. Will the pair’s passionate relationship sustain the ordinary pains of regular life?

Several other subplots are interwoven in this poignant - and often very steamy – "slice of life" story.

    "I give up"

    Maybe two stars was a little harsh for story but it was getting so over done towards the end maybe not.
    Two things put me of here the repetitiveness of the story the same fell and dialog was getting a bit thin, I always enjoyed and looked forward to Radclyffe's story's in the lesbian short stories audible has but perhaps that's the problem length,filling holes in her story's with sex seances that are not terribly imaginative ,the last few I have read fell like it's a race to get to the end rushed and clunky.
    Right if you have decided that Radcyffe is for and you don't care for my opinion that's cool but please beware of this narrator for some reason she takes a sharp breath before every sentence I was amazed she didn't pass out from lack of oxygen I found it very disruptive perhaps you like like that kind of thing but personally I'm done...

    I'm Audible's first Editor-at-Large, the host of In Bed with Susie Bright -- and a longtime author, editor, journo, and bookworm. I listen to audio when I'm cooking, playing cards, knitting, going to bed, waking up, driving, and putting other people's kids to bed! My favorite audiobooks, ever, are: "True Grit" and "The Dog of the South."

    "P-Town Romance"

    Radlyffe’s particular brand of tough ladies, and opposites attract lesbian romance, always draws me in.

    In “Safe Harbor” we are in Provincetown where the city’s new deputy sheriff is a cut above. Tough, beautiful and mysterious she's the envy of her co-workers and catches all the ladies' eyes.

    Her counterpart Dr.Victoria Parker is reserved and reclusive, but there’s smoldering chemistry that increases with every meeting.

    Radclyffe’s story is a satisfying emotional experience with well drawn characters and not a few surprises in the plot.

    Nicol Zanzarella’s reading is smart and sexy. I could feel the sea breeze in her voice.

    "Loved it"
    Would you listen to Safe Harbor again? Why?

    Yes. This is one of my favorite book by Radclyffe.


    What does Nicol Zanzarella bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She did a good job reading but the loud inhalations was a distraction and hard to get use to.

    Story
    "Radclyffe Rocks"
    Would you listen to Safe Harbor again? Why?

    Absolutely....great story line with engaging characters...I was there right with the characters living what they were living. Excellent book.


    What other book might you compare Safe Harbor to and why?

    Radclyffe writes like Nicolas Sparks did when he first started out and Hunter Green. Hunter Green's books have the same easy smooth reading just like Radclyffe. She has tender love stories with clever plots and storylines, and none of them seem to be the same so far. I love the way this author writes, very detailed in what needs details but not so technical in her details. I can see the scenes in my head when I listen to these books and even reading her books.


    What about Nicol Zanzarella’s performance did you like?

    She has a great voice for the book, and great reflections. I was in tears and rooting for the heroes because I didn't want anyone getting hurt. Although I would have loved to know in detail what the military/deputy did to the guy in the truck besides arrest him. I have heard a lot of books since this venue came out and there has only been a couple that I simply couldn't listen to. This lady is not one of them. She engages in her narrating. I loved it.


    If you could take any character from Safe Harbor out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    The lady who owned the gym who was a very good friend to everyone. She kind of reminds me of me in that she sees a lot and doesn't hold back what needs to be said. I loved her style. She seems to be the gatekeeper for this little town, having lots of stories to share.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the 3rd book that I have read where Radclyffe is an author. I love the way she writes and I had no idea that she has so many books that she has written. I can't wait to read them all.

    "Hard headed but sweet"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes I would, the book is enchanting, captivating, and exciting. Radcliffe always keeps me on my toe and wide eyed.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tori was a great character. I really love the way she showed her love even though she did not want to admit how much in love she was with Reese.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    I really enjoyed when Reese and Tori first kissed. It showed how much they both really cared for each other, even though Tori ran from the affections afterwards.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    At first I was not really into the book but then it really hit me and i couldn't wait for the two to get together


    Any additional comments?

    All of the Radcliffe books are really enjoyable. I look forward to listening to many more of his books in the future.

    "Enjoyed it but could have been better"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator.
    The constant long lingering drawn out sounding of the last word in every sentence can be annoying...


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved that although it is very subtle this must have been originally a fan fic story. the dark hair blue tall heroine could be more obvious with a young gentle hazel bard :)


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Nicol Zanzarella?

    Tavia Gilbert without a second thought


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    yup but doubtful
