“Favorite authors- Nevada Barr, Craig Johnson, Louise Penny. Narrators, Marguerite Gavin, , George Guidall.”
I don't mind sex scenes but these seem to be gratuitous and the narrator is annoying
The mystery story was okay but all of the underlying sexual tension and predictable love story ruined the overall book. I wish audible would use a new category "mystery suspense/romance" I'm tired of getting books that have more cheesy romance than supposed theme.
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
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!
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 love it but i wish she would stop using the word anvil inevery book
There was a child abduction subplot in there somewhere, but fortunately, it didn't get in the way of the tormented romance between the tough-but-vulnerable federal agent and the tough-but-vulnerable small-town cop, both of whose eyes, we are reminded many, many times, "had seen too much."
I love mysteries/thrillers. When most of the book is spent describing the personal relationship in/out of bed of the two primary characters...I figure there isn't enough story to fill a book. So why do I read it? Well I fast forwarded through much of the relationship stuff--to get to the mystery. The other was not relevant to the story. I'm not sure I'll try another Tami Hoag book. Just too much other stuff used to fill spaces.
Love Harry Bosch--although I've almost finished the latest and last. Oh, no!
Disappointing write and finish. Don't really care what comes next. Not a good sign that I will read more from same author.
I really enjoyed this book taken place in MN. BUT, it would have been nice if the people in charge had found out how to pronounce some of the names of towns & colleges!! Other than that they did a good job & the story was very well done.
"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.
This book is truly outstanding. Not a word or a sentence too long. Smart, fast-paced, insightful, tense, thrilling, romantic. Loved it from start to finish. Well done Tami!
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.
