    "WOW!!!! I loved it sooo much!!!"

    Thank You Lisa Jackson, for taking me away and losing myself. It was a great ride, one that I didn't want to get off.

    Have you listened to any of Natalie Ross’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    LOVE Natalie Ross, one of the best narrators.


    Did Afraid to Die inspire you to do anything?

    "Great to see Alvarez and Pescoli again"
    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was good. There were a few unbelievable coincidences but for the most part it was a good storyline.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator needs to work on her male voices. It kind of broke up the flow when she switched to a male because it really sounded like a female trying to sound male. When it was narration or female voices she did fine.


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

    This book definitely kept me hanging on and wanting to drive around to listen. Fortunately I had lots of driving to do for work and could listen to it all in just a few days.


    Any additional comments?

    It's great to be back to the Alvarez and Pescoli storyline. I've really enjoyed this series.

    "must love Lisa Jackson"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    no, just ok


    Would you be willing to try another book from Lisa Jackson? Why or why not?

    I do not think so. the outline is good, but she just does not have the material I enjoy.


    Which character – as performed by Natalie Ross – was your favorite?

    I purchased this book because Natalie Ross was the reader. Her male voice is her strength and if you like her, then visit the books she reads. My all time favorites are there.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    I own so many...if this author has a following great...just not my cup of tea.

    Story
    "Another Christmas Serial Murderer"

    Grizzly Falls is a small town in Montana. There is a serial murderer who kidnaps young women, whose hair is coloring is brunette and all of the women are pretty. He and his wife attend the same church as some of the women. The killer has intruded into their private lives. He's aware of their movements, where they'll be at a particular time and plays the role of someone who needs help.

    The serial killer preys on women who are good and well meaning people. He'll be pulled over to the side of the road, snow falling hard from the sky. with his head under the hood of his truck, looking at the engine. A woman stops and goes to see if she can help the gentleman out. That is one of the ways he's used to pull the women into his truck and initiates fear tactics that are cruel and meant to frighten them. Some of the women know him from church and feel okay when they recognize him, which can prove fatal.

    The women are then taken to his chamber of death, where he wastes no time. He puts them into a cell like structure that prevents their escape. He then begins to drip icy cold water on them in preparation for his art sculpting.

    The time is Christmas and he tries to find places that are related to the season. When the frozen, sculpted women are placed, he derives great pleasure when the person who finds it becomes agitated, scared, screams and gets the attention of other's. Sometimes, he'll be in the crowd with other's at the scene. He gains a certain perverseness watching the people around him. He's disguised so that anyone taking pictures will not pick him out of the burdening crowd.

    The reader will also learn some very important facts about Selena Alvarez's personal life. I've read the books in order and I have been patiently waiting for some answers to my questions.

    There is also Reagan Pescoli, who does provide the reader with some laughs. I think I know what would make her life easier, such as moving in with her steady boyfriend of long standing. He has asked her many times to move in with him and to bring her son and daughter with her. He would like to see if her life could become more structured and if her children could learn how to live a normal life within a structured environment. Reagan has to decrease her stress, which hurts her ability to create what could be considered a normal, whatever normal is, home life, that would give her what she wants, a relationship with her children and respect, less screaming and more hugs.

    Pescoli and Alvarez do work well together as detectives. They are always there for one another. Their ability to be detectives, while working with one another, has been proven to solve many crimes. The sheriff's department personnel seem to work as a unit. There are times when there are disagreements that cause tension but all things usually work their way clear by the end of the day. However, as we all know, not all people like one another but as long as it causes no problems at the office, things will be good.

    I've enjoyed reading the series. Reading them in order has been good for me. The narrator, Natalie Ross, does a good job with the characterization of anger, sadness and many other feelings. I know which character is speaking. The characters continue to develop with each book that I read. Trying to get into the mind of a serial killer continues to prove quite difficult for me. Their minds are definitely twisted. The story is exciting to read. The plot is definitely on track. The book is an easy listen and enjoyable.
