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)

    "Good story, terrible narrator"

    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.

    Story
    "Was pleasantly surprised."
    Where does Heartbreaker rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


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

    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.

    Story
    "Predictable."

    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.

    "ok"

    It was a decent story, but the narrator trying to do male voices and a French accent was annoying.

    "Narrator was a Heartbreaker"
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "That accent!"

    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.

    Story
    "New to this author"

    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.

    "Nope"

    Did not make it past the first 10 minutes. Just not my kind of story.
