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)
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.
Julie Garwood's stories are well-woven and have a good mix of depth and complexity but are still easy listening. The characters - especially the main ones - are typically likeable and well developed. I think this story could have included a little more depth for the protagonists, but it was good. I recommend it.
I really think this was the best one (for me) in the criminal mystery category. I almost always guess the culprit, and am waiting for the author to catch up with me. That did Not happen with this one. It started off a little slow & I thought it might be too cliché', but I quickly changed my mind as I was drawn into the storyline.
I loved her voice & reading style. She really pegged each character and really brought them to life.
I can't wait to start on the 2nd book in the series, and sure hope it continues with at least 2 of these characters, if not more, because I just loved them all :-)
I happen to like the narrator Tanya Eby and that is why I decided to get the book. I don't know what happened with this book. After 5 hours in I just couldn't continue and I rarely ever do that. I will either speed up the narration so at least I finish the book. But I figured maybe I would go back to it. But I can't - why waste my time when there are so many other books out there I might enjoy more. So sadly disappointed.
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.
