ok, so it's not a great work of literature... it's fun, and easy, and the plot twists keep you interested. The San Francisco setting was cool for a SF resident.
I didn't like the narrator's voice at first- I like to listen at fast speed and her voice as too shaky to listen to that way. Hearing her do blue-collar male was especially hard. But by the end I warmed up to her, and it felt like she was someone who cared about the characters, telling me the story.
I love this book. I was hooked from the very first chapter! I also really enjoyed the narrator. I prefer a male narrator but was pleasantly surprised. She did a great Job!
I was pleasantly surprised. the plot was complex and held my interest to the end - there was a very good mystery component that was not compromised by the romantic element.
The storyline was good, and it was entertaining. Personally, I have grown quite tired of Freethy's must-marry-before-I'm-30 heroines. This is the fourth book, and the formula is unchanged.
I think I will give her books a rest. Overall, it is an okay tale.
Enjoyed from the 1st chapter! Great story good narrator and believable characters with a very good ending. My husband was reading while I was listening - he too thought it a great story and loved the mystery of it!
