    Devotee of multi-tasking, keen gardener and cross-stitcher. Now able to do both AND listen to stories at the same time. Bliss.

    Story
    "Enjoyable Mystery, but predictable"

    After a troubled past, Jayne is in search of a photo opportunity with a reclusive wood sculptor to help support her family when medical debts pile up. What she finds is a brooding ex-cop, a new stalker and the mystery of a celtic coin found under the body of a hiker. This is an enjoyable story, but not a memorable one. The narrator brings this story up to 4 stars for me and I'd happily listen to Scott Schumaker again. Worth a credit? No. The price is low enough to avoid the use of a credit, especially (at the moment) if you pay out for a Kindle Edition and take advantage of the special $1.99 cost.

    Story
    "Okay."

    Overall, the storyline is compelling. I think I may have read it for myself because the narrator made the heroine sound...whinny. Just irritating.

    Story
    "Better than I expected..new to the author."
    What made the experience of listening to Midnight Exposure the most enjoyable?

    The narrator did a fine job so I could feel like I could get involved with the story and not annoyed by the characters because of how they are voiced verses the actual characters virtues or lack thereof.

    I tend to only offer written reviews (not just stars) if the narrator is either very good or very bad.

    Story
    "Chilling!"

    I read this through Kindle Unlimited so I don't know that I'd necessarily have chosen this book otherwise. I'm glad I did! The story starts out with scene that keeps you guessing. I stayed up late to find out what would happen! The bad guys are SUPER creepy. My only complaint is that I feel like the story was a bit long.

    Story
    "A decent mystery."

    This was a decent mystery. It had me guessing for quite a while before I figured out who the kidnapper/killer was.

    I liked the main characters Reed and Jayne. Reed was tall and sexy. Jayne was beautiful and kick azz. I liked that she was a blackbelt in Karate and could take care of herself, she didn't have any TSTL moments so that is a bonus. They had some good chemistry and there is one nicely written sex scene not erotica.

    There is quite a bit of dialogue which is good but there are also A LOT of internal thoughts going on in the variety of I have too much baggage.

    The story line and plot were decent. It was different, a Celtic rituals sacrifice=kidnapping and murder in a very small town.

    The narration was very good. I really like Scott Schumaker. He does a really good job with the female voices and he reads with emotion like whispers and coughs as its called for. He has a very nice reading voice too.

    I got this as a free read free listen with my KU subscription. So for that it was worth it.

    "Creepy narrator!"

    The narrators voice sounds way to old for the character. It sounded creepy for him to talk about Jayne!

    Story
    "Never a dull moment.."
    Any additional comments?

    Really good book. Love, love, loved Reed and Jayne. And there was just enough angst for it not to get stupid with it.
    AND Scott was just awesome!!! A 17 year old that wasn't a complete and total jerk. Authors who make their teen asses aren't doing themselves any favors.
    I was sorry about Hugh and really saw no point in that happening. Doug Lang was a miserable wretch. And I was glad that Jed didn't die. Nathan and his uncle Aaron were really whacked.
    A great read with just enough sexual tension and sex to make it interesting.

    As to the narrator: Ummm.. What can I say? He wasn't really horrible but his womens voices did kinda suck. I wouldn't go out of my way to listen to him again but I wouldn't NOT buy a book because he's the narrator, either.

    "Narration not my cup of tea...."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I only managed to listen to about 10 min. before the narration got so annoying, that I had to quit. I know that it's really just a matter of taste, but I learned my lesson to always listen to the sample before buying!
