    As a psychiatrist addiction is important to me. I am addicted to audible books, kindle books, my husband, and my thirteen cats.

    "Returned it!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Take a good plot, good guy vs. bad bad guy. Then add in great setting, cleaver characters and unknown upcoming events. WOW should have been great right?
    Well ruin it with poor narrator, very slow pace in places, one to many helicopter crashes, names to close to the same to understand while narrating. Oh, and don't forget to include shallow characters with little depth, unrealistic events and most importantly, no buildup, no drama just plan, yeah it happened duh. returning this one.

    "No action, no suspense, no romance"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I would like to see some of the reflection on the past as action scenes. I continued to read thinking it would eventually improve and grab my attention


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    No sure


    Would you be willing to try another one of Emily Sutton-Smith’s performances?

    Yes


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No, not at all. When I finished all I could think of was-why???

    Story
    "I kept hoping it would end!"

    I finished it but only just. I think it's amateurish and badly written. Too much of what is important to the story -- even who the "bad guy" is -- is revealed in the characters' thoughts rather than through action, i.e. something happening. And at the same time there are long scenes with sighing, looking, touching -- certainly part of developing the story, but, perhaps, not as deserving of "action" as advancing the plot. I'm sure I've said it badly. This is a big yawner -- in spite of love at first site, plane crash, escaped mass murderer, avalanche, etc.
    I was so glad when it was over and I could go on to John Sandford's latest.

    "Dissapointed in this one"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Hmm...I'm not sure. I had high hopes, as we met the hero in book 1. He seemed like a more Alpha hero. I wasn't a fan of how he lied to insert himself into the search & rescue from the get go in this story, and can't say that my opinion of his character built from there. The writing wasn't bad, I just could NOT warm up to the this hero...


    What was most disappointing about Kendra Elliot’s story?

    The hero...I really wanted to like him, but the more I learned about him, above and beyond the fact that he lied from the start, I really didn't like. He'd chosen his wife over his brother with special needs, and she didn't even come across as anything but cold. And how could he accidentally stab a friend & co worker? Why was he pacing & ranting w/ a letter opener anyway? In my eyes he came across borderline baddie.


    Did Emily Sutton-Smith do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    She did. I liked her much better than the narrator from book 1 ~ and it's too bad I just could NOT bring myself like this book.


    What character would you cut from Chilled?

    Ha. Alex, the hero.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed book 1, and like the authors writing style. I just didn't like the path she took Alex down...,and that's totally my opinion, but I couldn't even finishe this one. I got tot the part where they'd dug him out of the avalanche, and to be honest? I didn't like Alex enough to stick with it. And I really wanted to! The premise was a good one...the set up was good, but that one character killed it for me.

    "Enjoyable"

    The second of the series that has skipped forward a couple of years finding Brynn on a search and rescue team in the snow covered mountains, unknown to them they are walking into a rescue of a notorious serial killer. On that mission is Alex, supposedly a US Marshall. He has his own agenda for being on the team, however his priorities change when he sees Brynn. Lies unfold as things progress and the situation worsens when sickness and injury plague the search. The book is pretty predictable but remained enjoyable.

    "Not a bad story but characters & delivery not so"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    unless you like superficial characters, and the reader reading as if she hadn't preread it first so she misses nuances she should have caught so it'd sound right, and you enjoy the exceptional amount of swear words totally unnecessary to the story, I wouldn't recommend this one.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Action enough but lotsa swearing I don't need to hear so often!


    Did Emily Sutton-Smith do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Emily S-Smith did a reasonably good job reading but characters could be better differentiated.``


    Was Chilled worth the listening time?

    yes but won't listen again.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It kept me interested and listening


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I was pretty interested but there were only a few times I wanted to bite my nails.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The performance was okay but kind of bland. I didn't feel the excitement when it should have been there.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No

    I've always loved books. Even before I could read I've loved them. Fact or Fiction, I love books. I'd sooner read a book than see a movie.

    Story
    "Exciting Rescue or Romance?"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Chilled to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version of Chilled, but for me listening to a audio book is always more enjoyable. Audible has the best selection of titles available. I find it more relaxing to listen to various books, especially when they are performed by talented narrators. Listening allows me to do other things, like driving to work, or cook in my kitchen. You can't do that by reading a book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Chilled?

    Chilled's tale of a search and rescue team, trekking into the snow covered Cascade Mountains, after a downed plane, is exciting enough. But to throw in a escaped psychopath and a vengeance seeking ex-federal agent is icing on the cake. The characters of the S.A.R.s team were interesting and human. I enjoyed listening to the build up of each of their characterization and back stories. There is a romance with in this story, and that was okay. The only part which didn't seem necessary to the book, was the graphic sex scene near the end of the book.


    What aspect of Emily Sutton-Smith’s performance would you have changed?

    Emily's performance was fine and well paced. There wasn't any need for different accents to make much of a radiance in her performance. I would listen to her perform another book.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Chilled. You just never know what you will find, in the cold Cascade Mountains.

    "Predictable story..."
    What disappointed you about Chilled?

    It was very predictable.


    Has Chilled turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, they are an easy listen, like a filler, better if they are on sale for sure.


    What didn’t you like about Emily Sutton-Smith’s performance?

    Too many men in this story for one voice of a woman.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Irritated that they didn't try and get down the mountain with more urgency.
