"Tami Hoag is the queen of the crime story.” (New York Post)
It would have but I listened to the 2 books backwards - I listened to Guilty as Sin first - didn't know there was a first part to it as the books should be a series.
I always like listening to her
Very good book but there is a second one - Guilty as Sin - listen to this one first...
I held off getting this book because of some of the review, and I can agree that the sex in this book does feel misplaced. I'm not a prude about hearing sex, but this definitely took some of the shine off the story, hence the 4 stars instead of 5.
I really like Tami Hoag's writing and her ability to write a suspense thriller is getting better with every book of hers i read/listen too. It's an easy listen, and definitely has that, "i'll drive the long way home" because you wanna hear what happens next!
Less sex. How many ways does the sex need to be written? Thought I was reading J B Robb. Which I stopped listening to after the 4rth book because of contious sex between main characters. I am not a prude but I think it is laziness on the author part when sex is used as a filler
Yes I have already listened to 6 other books and have enjoyed them, exception Guilty as Sin.
Yes Guilty as Sin which I think she was either sick or being threaten to read
Mad Mad Mad, yes I probably should have read the reviews, and would have found out that this book was two parts. REALLY SHOULD BE PUT IN THE DESCRIPTION. If it would have I would not have wasted a credit on it.
I think these two book were written to meet her publisher quota. All the other books I have listened to I enjoyed, that why I downloaded these two...Dumb Dumb Guilty as Sin, Night Sins I should have had a clue ARRGH
“Favorite authors- Nevada Barr, Craig Johnson, Louise Penny. Narrators, Marguerite Gavin, Barbara Rosenblat, George Guidall, Ralph Cosham.”
I don't mind sex scenes but these seem to be gratuitous and the narrator is annoying
i love it but i wish she would stop using the word anvil inevery book
Really enjoyed this book. The mystery is well done, the humor had great timing. Looking forward to the continuance. I have been happy with this author and I like the narrator.
I used to enjoy Tami Hoag's mysteries but this one was awful. I will not use another credit on her.
Leave out the unneeded sexual scenes and stay with the storyline and finish the story.
It would be hard to narrate this story well but the reader made it even harder to bare.
All sex scenes.
Hard to put down. Surprising end as I still have questions that were not answered. Does this book have a sequel?
It was a good, long listen, but felt it could've been shortened a bit.
I got very tired of hearing the weather every few pages it seemed. The day, the time, the temperature, the windchill factor..... It's cold, I get it.
The main character, Megan, was a little too unbelievable. Nothing was ever gone into about her background or history to really explain why she is the way she is. Could've just as easily have said she didn't have the family or have a relationship with her family and left it at that. She was a little A little too tough to be believed. Even I was getting a little tired of the chip on her shoulder.
narrator was OK, but just OK
probably not. Not enough twists and guesses for my liking
"A Third Too Long"
Tami Hoag always produces a book worth reading as they are invariably well written
As far as the crime element of this book it is excellent but, in my opinion, is let down by the detraction of the love interest/sex scenes between the two central characters. This is all rather cliche.
As a whole the book is worth a listen but if you like your crime books to contain only crime/detection then this may not be for you.
The eighteen hours could have been edited down to around twelve and still made an excellent book.
I've read a few of Tami Hoag's books and so far none have disappointed me, Guilty as sin here I come!! Would recommend to those who like a good thriller with a bit of "romance" thrown in.
