I love mysteries & thrillers, sometime love stories..
This was my 1st audio book & l loved it. It only took my 1 day to listen to it.
Yes, cause you had no idea of when or who was gonna be killed.
This is my 1st time using an audio book & I enjoyed it.
It was a little predictable as some of the reviews suggest, and, yes, everyone was a little stupid at times but there were some surprises and a nice romance. Just an enjoyable listen wondering who was going to be the next victim and why.
The narrator did okay, although she could work on the male voices.
I loved this book and love this series. Cynthia Eden does a great mystery. I didn't find the book or the series to be predictable and didn't completely put all the pieces together until the end. I had a few "suspects" and the killer turned out to be one of the three I thought it would be. Overall a very good read, kept me interested and on edge through the entire book. The romance side is also good, with just the right amount of steam.
Hard to say - it's a good plot, but I was pulled out of the story more than once when the main character (Catherine) would do something so stupid you wanted to smack her. The cops aren't far behind her for stupid. Two different times the main characters had ample opportunity to kill the bad guy and didn't. Yikes - stupid!
Anyone - really bad male voices.
Yeah - erase it.
Argh - frustrating book. Very annoying.
The narrator was terrible. She read slow and had no personality in her voice. She made the heroin seem mousy.
Good story that kept me entertained.
Absolutely all of it. I wanted to listen to the other books but when I found out they have the same narrator I just couldn't do it.
Listening to books is the way I separate from the stress of being an attorney. I enjoy fiction, mystery thrillers, an occasional romance, and books about cutting edge medicine and science. I was a History major so that is always interesting too.
Yes, I would make it less predictable.
I was not overly surprised or fooled.
Dane sounded like a werewolf with a two pack a day habit...ease up on the gruff and go more for deep.
More character development. These characters were too pat.
Having taken a "stab" at writing my own serial killer book, it is easy to make the story predictable, and I felt that except for the interjection of the twisted psychiatrist, this one was extremely predictable.
Sentences like this is typical for the book; "The house smelled like her. Fresh strawberries. Sweet. Heady." You know already from the first chapter what will happen between the two.
This book made me roll my eyes again and again. It's predictable and, in lack of a better word; childish.
The characters and dialogue were so stereotyped that it was painful to listen to. Very predictable in all regards.
A Jo Nesbo or Laura Lipman mystery.
The narrator was fine but sometimes the pace was too slow and dramatic sounding.
This is the only audiobook that I have not finished. I found it too painful to continue and a waste of time so I stopped and went on to another book.
I got this book and the audible version free with my KindleUnlimited yesterday afternoon. The audio is 10 hours and 56 minutes long and I was up until 4:00 this morning finishing it.
I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! Loved Dane and Katherine/Kat/Katelynn/Katie. The secondary characters, Mac, Ronnie, Harley, Marcus and Ross, were wonderful. There was 2 seriel killers but Valentine/Michael was the scariest and the main killer in this book.
One reviewer gave the impression that Dane and Katherine fell in love in a very, very short time but I certainly didn't get that impression. Another made it sound like it was mostly sex and not enough storyline and that couldn't be further from the truth. There really was just enough sex but not nearly enough build up to it.
One great read and I highly recommend it. Now, I'm off to read Fear For Me.
As to the narrator: She was OK. She did do some men's voices but they sounded kind of angry every time they spoke or, like Mac, they sounded a little girly. She wasn't the greatest but she wasn't the worst either. I will listen to the next book in the series.
try Karen Rose novels - similar theme
can't wait for the next 2 books following this one...............
