A medical miracle gave TV personality Cat Delaney more than a new heart. It gave her a second chance at life. After leaving Hollywood to host a San Antonio TV show spotlighting children with special needs, Cat fights to gain respect as a newscaster. She meets Alex Pierce, an ex-cop turned crime writer, who regards her as a woman, not as a heart patient. When fatal “accidents” begin killing the other heart recipients, Alex may – or may not – be her most important ally.
With her new world turning sinister and a mysterious stalker shadowing her every move, Cat is caught in a dark maze of betrayal and secrets…and perhaps sees too late the mask hiding a killer’s face.

“[A] page-turner…a compelling heroine…Brown has once again hit her mark.” (People)
Many books you can figure out the killer in the very beginning but this book had many twist and turns that were very unexpected. Loved it.
The narrator was a woman and her variations of voices for the different characters was awful
For what I listened to the story jumped around so much that I would not know what they were talking about or who the characters were.
just that I couldn't listen to the book so was very disappointed
For the most part, it was a good listen, but I found myself having trouble warming up to the main female character. I liked the male lead, which saved the book. The 'bad guy' was pretty easy to discern, and it was almost laughable at the end that Cat never suspected him. I think the narrator did a nice job.
This book would have been better categorized under romance, rather than mystery. I am so disappointed to have spent money on a book I do not want to even finish. I am more than half way through and can't believe I have listened to this much. This is the first book I have written a negative review for. I don't read mysteries for frequent sex scenes and teenagey romance.
I think the plot of the story acceptable. The ending with all the twists and turns of the people involved was surprising, however the voice of Kat was ok but the men in the story-the interpretation of their voices were not to pleasant to the ear of this listener.
I love Sandra Brown and I really wanted to love this book but would definitely not recommend it. Might have been a good book with less sex. It was hard to follow the main plot. Could have been 2 - 4 hours shorter.
I find myself raising my eyes to the heavens at some of the overly heated way of writing. The story was reasonably good, but the telling of it...
Performance was good - real yelling etc!
I loved it. I mean I could barely sleep or work for thinking about what was happening next. Few books captivate me like this. Absolutely Sandra keeping you guessing until the end.
I'm picky about the narrators because some of them put me to sleep or simply have an annoying voice. I look for Natalie Ross now because she has great inflection and keeps me awake and interested. I use audible a lot on road trips and it's especially important then.
Sandra Brown delivered everything her readers expects from her, yet again!
"Completely ruined by the ending"
The narration was brilliant - the best ever. Really brought the book to life. This was a great story totally destroyed, for me, by the final chapters
I was irritated at the ending. The whole romance and plot was ruined for me. Difficult to say why without spoiling the plot. I think the Hero was fixated with his dead love obsessively and never got over her. His reasons for going after the heroine, and the way he did it - which was only really revealed in the last chapters, was just icky. And the neat tidying up of the "who got whose heart" storyline, by inserting another character in the final pages was just silly and an insult to the reader who had spent the entire book trying to figure out the puzzle.
I really enjoyed listening to this book - until the final chapters. But the ending leaves a bitter taste and I will happily delete from my library.
I actually initially filled out my rating for this book at 4 stars for the story and overall (I almost never give 5 stars). This was because I was almost at the end and was enjoying it so much. Then I finished those final chapters and downgraded to one star - I was so angry at the way it ended!
