Publisher's Summary

Attorney Kenneth King can't wait to get away on vacation and leave the courtroom behind. He only has one last errand to do for his boss: drop off a flash drive to fellow attorney Emma James. But as soon as the drive is in his hands, his boss is murdered and Kenneth becomes the next target. With nowhere left to turn, he reaches out to Emma for help, but that only puts them both in danger.

Emma James just wants to settle into her new job and provide a good life for her little girl. That is all threatened when she gets a flash drive with information on it that points to an imminent terrorist attack on US soil. With her choices dwindling and her vulnerabilities made crystal clear, Emma is pushed to the limit by those who want her dead, and the rest of the country to suffer. How far will she be forced to go to save the lives of everyone around her, including those she loves?

Kenneth and Emma have to find a way to work together to stop the terrorists, but it's the most difficult trial of their lives - and the verdict will be life or death.

    "julie coulter bellon wins again!"
    If you could sum up Through Love's Trials in three words, what would they be?

    An amazing story!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked Emma, she was a strong woman that had been through a lot in her life and but was independent and in the face of trials she was strong and came away a hero. She also let Kenneth in and let him help her.


    What about Keith Michaelson’s performance did you like?

    He did an excellent job changes his voice so we knew which character was speaking.


    Any additional comments?

    I love anything Julie writes and she doesn't disappoint with this series either.

    "Great escape"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Through Love's Trials to be better than the print version?

    This review is from my wife:
    Have not read the print copy.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kenneth. Strong male lead always helps. He wasn't ex-special forces or SEALs, just an attorney. Everyday kind of guy with strong sense of morality. Emma was also good but seemed a bit weak at times. Maybe timid is more the right description. She does have her shining moments though. Julia, the daughter, was hilarious.


    What does Keith Michaelson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Never had to wonder who was speaking. The female voices were so much better than I would have thought. I forgot it was a guy narrating during their dialogue. The diversity of voices was great.


    Any additional comments?


    Great escape from the daily grind. Lots of romance books feel like soap operas or they have that retarded love triangle. This one did not. The characters were real, dealing with everyday challenges. Made them feel relatable to me. The twist at the end with Kenneth (no spoilers don't worry) was pretty good.

    "Characters and sweet story!"

    This could have been longer but was still good! I could totally see the story in my head. the narrator was pretty captivating as a storyteller. I'm so happy to have a good romance that's clean!! Glad I took a chance on this book.

    Story
    "Fast paced, quick listen"
    Would you listen to Through Love's Trials again? Why?

    Probably. Story was good, narration was good. It really moved along at a good pace. The intensity was easy to feel.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Through Love's Trials?

    The prologue really was emotional. Really pulled me in. There's a scene [spoiler alert] where Emma is attacked. It was angering and gripping at the same time. Some of the jumps in the relationship between the two main characters were a little forced, but it didn't bother me too much. Even though this is the first in a series, it seems, the book works well as a stand alone. I'd pick up the next book when it comes out.


    What about Keith Michaelson’s performance did you like?

    Have not heard him before. Voice is rich, performance consistent. As I said, the prologue was really was emotional. I think the performance had a lot to do with that and kept me listening.


    Any additional comments?

    This wasn't sappy romance. It's clean, ok for a family to listen to on a trip (as we did). Good humor as well here and there (I like Pepper). I could have done with a little more action, but it holds its own as an adventure/romance. The "court" scene at the end made me smile. Clever.

    "Where's book 2?"

    Through love's trials wraps us nicely, but it says this is book 1...so...
    Honestly, I'm not sure I would have stuck with this after the beginning if it weren't for the narrator. After what I thought was a predictable start, the story really took off and I'm glad I stuck with it. You should too! Give it a shot. I didn't regret it, neither will you! 5 stars.

    "Heart Pounding Action & Suspense"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Interesting, realistic action & suspense. A nice romance that first started off as practically enemies. Great detail that really puts you in the story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Through Love's Trials?

    When Kenneth goes to Emma's house,when she doesn't show up for their meeting together.
    He arrives just in time to fight off the Sleazy Guy that broke into Emma's house, and still was there attacking her.


    Have you listened to any of Keith Michaelson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Haven't heard him before.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    My heart was pounding when they were being chased down and when their lives are in danger.


    Any additional comments?

    Was easy to relate to and connect, by just being a parent, and having the concern when one of your children are lost or in danger.
    I avoid movies and books that have violence. This book did have fighting and even people dying, yet not all the gory, gross details of it all.

    "Well Read"

    This audio book is well done. It's not my favorite of the author's stories, but it's entertaining. The romance seems a bit rushed but they do make a point of saying how it doesn't feel like they've known each other such a short time with all they've been through together.
