Heartbreaker | [Julie Garwood]

Heartbreaker

In the still shadows of the confessional, a madman tauntingly reveals his plan for a murder he is going to commit, pulling Father Thomas Madden into a twisted game by disclosing his next intended victim: Tom's sister, Laurant. In a frantic race to protect her, Tom calls upon his best friend, elite FBI agent Nick Buchanan, to track the predator who is closing in on Laurant. Now, as an electrifying attraction grows between Laurant and Nick, so does the danger - and one false move will cost both of them everything that matters.

What the Critics Say

"Heartbreaker moves along at a racehorse pace, its plot swerving and darting with sudden turns and jolts.... Garwood's characters are well drawn." (New York Post)

    Story
    "You might want to read this book"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I might add a little more suspense - it didn't keep me on the edge of my seat.


    What didn’t you like about Tanya Eby’s performance?

    Very annoying. The narrator had the same dragged out inflection on the last word of every other sentence (almost).


    Do you think Heartbreaker needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Already part of a series.

    I love to read. On average I read and/or listen to more than 100 books a year. Audible has been a fantastic addition to my life. Love it!

    "Great story awful narrator"

    I've read this book before but never listened to it. I still love the story but the narrator was terrible. Her accents are laughably bad. As the main character has a French accent by the end I was ready to pull my hair out listening to the narrator butcher it. Unfortunate because the story is otherwise worth a listen.

    "Read this ages ago....was nice to listen this time"
    Would you listen to Heartbreaker again? Why?

    Yes, but am going to listen to rest of series first!


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

    No, but it was enjoyable. I mostly enjoyed the interaction between characters. Narrator did a great job.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    one of the humorous scenes where Laurant jogs with a bunch of school boys following behind...it became quickly apparent Nick didn't like it too much


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    If you like Julie Garwoods books, this is an enjoyable way to "read" it.

    "So much potential, no follow through"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend the book to a friend and have. It's a wonderful and suspenseful story.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Tanya Eby?

    I would love to hear Elizabeth Klett read this story. I don't know if she would but she has an amazing way of bringing a story to life.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I would most definitely go see this if it were made into a movie.


    Any additional comments?

    I am glad I read the book before getting the audio book. Because I can't even finish it. The narrator STUBBORNLY refused to say the name of a main character correctly. I expect a little research to be done prior to the reading so that an obviously french name will be pronounced correctly. Laurant is said at least a thousand times, the "t" is silent and Ms. Eby pronounced it with the "t' every time. The only break you get is when the other charaters say her name incorrectly in the book. She can at least pronounce Lauren. Ok. . . rant over. I feel better now. I still wish I could get my money back on this one. I don't want it any more.

    "WONDERFUL STORY"

    This book kept me enthralled and kept me working fast, as I listen to books while I work at a sewing job. The story kept me enthralled right up to the end. I had a hard time figuring out the end, totally, but we all know the end eventually. It had it's twist and turns.

    "Not impressed"
    Would you try another book from Julie Garwood and/or Tanya Eby?

    No, I would not waste my money on another book by this author - her writing was amaturish and included details that seemed forced.

    "Just ok"

    The story just had too much narrating instead of the character talking. I enjoy most of the story the priest as the brother best friend FBI sexy agent and his semi bold sister the end was the best gave it 3 stars
