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)

    "Fun and Funny"

    Some of the most delightful characters are found in this book. I want more of them. The narration is wonderful. The story about Lois nearly tickled me silly.

    Story
    "FBI to the rescue."

    I am huge fan of Julie Garwood's older books and I like her newer stuff, just not as much as I enjoyed her Highlander or Regency books. This book is good but I wouldn't say great. I didn't connect with the characters as well as I would have liked. I have a hard time when the main characters are lacking any flaws. One thing that annoyed me is that we never hear the stories being told about Nick and Tommy only that there are stories and that they were funny. Maybe she was going for heartwarming and not funny because I didn't laugh. Narrator was okay, the recording had a few instances where the sound would drop, it usually only last a couple of seconds.

    Story
    "The Formula Reigns"

    First, I enjoyed this book and Tanya Eby's performance with exception of her attempts at a French accent. Julie Garwood's writing made the rather predictable plot enjoyable. However, I've tired of the worn out character devices--The beautiful, sexy, young woman is sucked into love with a virtual stranger who is overwhelmed with lust. The lust translate to irrational overprotectiveness, blah, blah, blah. The lust affair interrupted the flow of the story while adding little to move the plot forward. It is unlikely that I'll purchase any more books by this author.

    "Too Juvenile, Just Couldn't Get Through It!"

    Got this book on sale use one credit, get two books. The reviews looked promising stating it was a chiller with romance and humor, which can work together when you have a good, grown-up plot and funny lines. I am not finding this to be the case with this book. I should have known when one of the grown-up characters was named Tommy:) Sorry Garwood lovers....

    "No struggle here."

    If you were following my pitiful reviews you will know I have had a few disappointing books. Been trying to decide what has been driving me up the wall. Maybe it is the narrators who just read it to me. Whoever this one was took the time to draw the picture of the voices with hers. Impressive. Really good book.

    Story
    "Not Garwood's Best"

    The book itself is not Garwood's best. There is a lot of editorial issues For example one character refers to a pair of sheets instead of a set of sheets. There are a lot of other such problems. Beyond that, there is way too much unnecessary narration that doesn't add to or carry the story.

    This makes for a mediocre story way less than the quality expected from Ms. Garwood.

    Add to that a horrible performance of the narration. The heroine starts out having a little accent that is even referred to in the narration, but very quickly the accent goes away and never comes back. For the rest of the book her voice is simply Miss Bedroom voice.

    The male voices are horrid. Nothing else can be said about them.

    The narration pulls the already mediocre story into the 2 star rating.

    "Great book!"
    Have you listened to any of Tanya Eby’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Love her performances. Have listened to others. She is a five star reader.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great series by Garwood. When are the rest coming out?!
