Publisher's Summary

Lisa Jackson is the #1 New York Times best-selling author of dark, erotic thrillers like Fatal Burn and Almost Dead.

Marla Cahill survives a horrific car accident, but comes out of it with near total amnesia - unable to recognize her own face. Now, confined to the Cahill mansion among strangers who claim to be her family, she begins fearing for her life. Someone was counting on Marla's death in the accident - and they may finish the job the moment her memory returns.

    I live in Michigan and have been a member of auible since it's onset. Hobbies are photography and writing...I am in the process of formatting my first novel for kindle and I hope everyone will read it. I LOVE AUDIBLE and listen to at least 3 unabridged books a month. !

    "If She Only Knew.. pick another narrator"

    I have never read or listened to a book that painted the heroine in such an unattractive light.
    Visions of the main character laying in her own vomit, did not evolke any emotion in me, because the writer never developed an emotional link between the main character and the reader.

    The narrator tried to develop a voice to suggest how it would sound if the main characters jaw was wired shut...but he never lost the lisp..throughout the whole book....
    Also the narrator was too raspy and unbelieveable in the love scenes. The voice was a struggle to listen till the finish.

    "Good Story - Poorly Narrated"

    The plot and characters were a bit weak, but not bad. The narrator should be replaced.

    Often individuals reading books assume that reading a book is just that -- reading Asthe words. Little interest in the voice is evident and there are problems with the pacing of the narration.

    Do these people read the book before they read it aloud? It seems to me that pre-reading ought to be a requirement to improve the narration.

    "Just Ok / Poor Narration"

    I was intrigued at first because the plot description give the impression that it would be an interesting story … a strange accident, amnesia, suspicious family members, evil lurking in the shadows… but my interest didn’t hold on to the end - I got bored about half way through.

    The characters weren’t that remarkable (nor even likable!), the pace was slow, the love story between Marla and Nick seemed completely contrived (I felt it was there just as an excuse for the author to write sex scenes), and The Big Reveal at the end was somewhat predictable although I do admit to being surprised at some revelations.

    I think perhaps I didn’t enjoy it because of the narrator. I regularly listen to Audiobooks in 1.5 to 1.8 speed and this often helps eliminate many of the complaints most people have about narrators, but in this case the tone was still flat and boring… it just helped me get to the end faster! Ha!

    This might one of those rare cases where the movie (if there was one) is better than the book.

    "Could not finish"
    Would you try another book from Lisa Jackson and/or Alan Nebelthau?

    OMG - - the narrator was reading the book like it was one long sentence. If they has Razzies for worst narrator he would win hands down. I do not know - - I guess I would try this author again but the narrator.... has he read any others? This seemed like a first and last time in one.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I am going back to Sandra Brown or J D Robb.... Envy - - probably will be next.


    How could the performance have been better?

    umm take a breath, vary the voices from Male - - Female - - Dog - - Cat....


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Frustration... Refund - - review....???


    Any additional comments?

    That about covers it. Like one person has already said... Try the book... as in reading it yourself.... I may do that at some point since I really liked the premise....

    "Buy the Book not the Audiobook"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The story itself is entertaining although somewhat predictable but still worth a read if you like Linda Jackson. The main problem here (like many other reviewers said) is the narration. I hear audiobooks all the time and I have never encountered such a poor narration. When I read the reviews I though "how bad can it possibly be"? Well it's REALLY bad...The narration was so bad (problems with tone, candence etc.) that is was extremely difficult to get into the story.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Predictable


    What didn’t you like about Alan Nebelthau’s performance?

    Terrible.


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

    Yes

    "Couldn't put it down!"

    This was a great mystery that kept me guessing. I thought that I had it figured out several times but I was wrong. I loved the narrator. He was perfect for this book! I'll be looking for more Lisa Jackson. I hope that the same narrator will be used.

    "Book was ok"
    Would you try another book from Lisa Jackson and/or Alan Nebelthau?

    I do enjoy Lisa Jackson books, but wasn't crazy about the narration of this one. It takes away from the book


    If you’ve listened to books by Lisa Jackson before, how does this one compare?

    This one was not as good because of the narrator.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Better narrator


    Was If She Only Knew worth the listening time?

    Yes, it was.


    Any additional comments?

    Will listen to more of Lisa Jackson because she is a good author
