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.

"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)
The story is great, I love Julie Garwood. But this narrator is horrible! Her cadence is extremely annoying. Literally had to force myself to continue listening because I wanted to find out what happened but I hated the narrator so badly. Will make a point to never buy another audiobook she does.
I was terrified the narration would ruin this one, as I said I was pleasantly surprised. This ranks one my favorites of Garwood books. Eby did a good job with it, but Nick sounded...off. It wasn't bad but it wasn't good. It was minor problem which I quickly got over because I was sucked into the book.
Even though I have read this book a million times, Eby did a good job and, of course Garwood writes a hell of a story.
I had not read (heard) this author before. From the description, I thought the story was a thriller/suspense/mystery. It was more like a harlequin romance thinly veiled with a predictable story. Reader does a good job with accent, but has an irritating lisp.
I quit listening to this story because I could no longer take the narrator's voice. From the very beginning, it was like listening to an automated operator or Siri read a book to me. I stuck around for a few chapters because the story line was intriguing but I finally gave up.
The story was okay but the attempt at a French accent was hard to listen to. I almost gave up as it became very irritating.
This was the first listen I've had by Judy Garwood. First impression even though the beginning will grab your attention, I soon discovered that the narrator, while good with ladies voices, it was not the case when she voiced the male characters.
I had to make myself keep listening. Had the story not been interesting I would not have gone back to finish the book.
I would purchase another book by Ms Garwood but without the same narrator.
