I first read this book back in 2011 when it came out and thoroughly enjoyed it. I am new to this audible experience so I am going back to listen to books I have in my collection. The way the narrator reads the story it is a whole new experience, she brings such life to the characters. I really enjoyed how she made me feel the emotions that author wanted you to feel from each character whether they were agitated, worried, overwhelmed etc..you feel it through her reading of the story.
I look forward to listening to the other books in this series in the coming months.
Webs of Fate:
Intrigue is a bound at Bentleys Royale when a buyer goes missing and purchasing dependencies are found. Danielle, the promising young clothing buyer does't show for an important appointment. Her boss believes she is irresponsible, and yet, she has one who is worried who tries to find out where she is. Ordered not to go check on her friend so she could distant herself from Danielle, Ashleigh disobeyed and went to her home a second time to find evidence of some wrong doing. When hearing noises in the bushes on her first visit, she is told by security it must be a cat and not to worry. Chastised by her fiance for putting her friend ahead of an event, Ashleigh continues to look for Danielle while she puts herself in harms way.
Webs of Fate started out like an entertaining saga and then droned on liek a slow pace soap opera with only spurts of intrigue and interest. I found the characters were a bit confusing and not very well developed. With all the plots that are going on, the story still was a bit shallow and the conversations a bit trite and melodramatic.
I did not like this narrator for this story, she missed the mark.
This book just fell short of my expectations.
