A peaceful Minnesota town, where crime is something that just doesn’t happen, is about to face its worst nightmare. A young boy disappears. There are no witnesses, no clues — only a note, cleverly taunting, casually cruel. Has a cold-blooded kidnapper struck? Or is this the reawakening of a long-quiet serial killer?…

A tough-minded investigator on her first, make-or-break case…A local cop who fears that big-city evils have come to stalk his small-town home...Together they are hunting for a madman who knows no bounds, to protect a town that may never feel safe again.

    "not very good narrator"

    I don't mind sex scenes but these seem to be gratuitous and the narrator is annoying

    Story
    "MAD MAD MAD"
    What would have made Night Sins better?

    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


    Would you ever listen to anything by Tami Hoag again?

    Yes I have already listened to 6 other books and have enjoyed them, exception Guilty as Sin.


    Have you listened to any of Jennifer Van Dyck’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes Guilty as Sin which I think she was either sick or being threaten to read


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

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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

    "Stick to the storyline"

    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.

    Any additional comments?

    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!

    "Another Great book from Tami Hoag"
    If you could sum up Night Sins in three words, what would they be?

    Interesting


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    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.


    What about Jennifer VanDyck’s performance did you like?

    I always like listening to her


    Any additional comments?

    Very good book but there is a second one - Guilty as Sin - listen to this one first...

    "Should be much shorter."

    Felt like watching a soap opera, too much details and descriptions that were not really necessary and felt very superficial.

    "ugh, the clichés."

    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."

    "Too much irrelevant filler"
    Would you try another book from Tami Hoag and/or Jennifer Van Dyck?

    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.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Love Harry Bosch--although I've almost finished the latest and last. Oh, no!


    How could the performance have been better?

    ?


    What character would you cut from Night Sins?

    ?


    Any additional comments?

    Disappointing write and finish. Don't really care what comes next. Not a good sign that I will read more from same author.

    "Awful"
    Would you try another book from Tami Hoag and/or Jennifer VanDyck?

    I used to enjoy Tami Hoag's mysteries but this one was awful. I will not use another credit on her.


    What could Tami Hoag have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Leave out the unneeded sexual scenes and stay with the storyline and finish the story.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It would be hard to narrate this story well but the reader made it even harder to bare.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Night Sins?

    All sex scenes.


    Any additional comments?

    Garbage.

    Story
    "A Third Too Long"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Tami Hoag always produces a book worth reading as they are invariably well written


    Would you recommend Night Sins to your friends? Why or why not?

    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.


    Was Night Sins worth the listening time?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
