SUSPICION. It burned through every nerve and fiber of Julie Carlson - the heartbreaking, infuriating suspicion that her husband was having an affair. To the rest of the world, Sid Carlson was a wealthy contractor with friends in highly influential places. But to Julie, he was a man who had cheated on their marriage vow. Heartbroken by her husband, Julie turns to a handsome stranger.
Mac McQuarry knew better than to mix women and work. And he had enough trouble of his own: The disgraced former cop had been demoted after an explosive shakedown of the Charleston police department. But when Julie Carlson hires him, Mac can't resist. Not only is she drop-dead gorgeous, but her husband was a player in Mac's inglorious downfall.
But what begins as a run-of-the-mill assignment spiced by a fiery flirtation suddenly spirals into a harrowing race for survival. Tracking the Carlsons' car down a lonely road one night, Mac witnesses an incredible hit that targeted Julie. Suddenly Mac and Julie have become the hunted. With the mob and the police in hot pursuit, they can rely only on each other as they crash their way through a maze of buried secrets and deadly deceptions.

"A top-notch romantic suspense writer....[A] steamy novel." (Booklist
Grabbed interest from start to end
Stands alone with story line,
Before the end when the characters were hiding in the tree with the gators were in the water. Just waiting to see if they could manage to evade capture.
Trust, deceit and lies. Who is the enemy- who is your friend
Great listen. Hard to take a break
Say something about yourself!
This is a fun story...I didn't get that from the introduction of the book. But it was really really funny in places. I loved these characters. And they were characters alright!
To Trust A Stranger is one of Robard's better RS books from earlier days. There are some funny lines from the H but the h is less impressive, her character made even less attractive by Hick's awful narrating voice. She gives Julie a high, almost-whiny voice, making her sound like a silly schoolgirl.
Since this book leans strongly on the male lead's POV, a male narrator would have been a better choice than the squeaky Hicks. There is an older, abridged version narrated by Kate Forbes who did a much better job. She gives Julie a warm, husky voice which makes her sexy and easier for me to get what Mac sees in her. It is a pity that the unabridged version which I wanted very much, turned out to be such a disappointment!
Hicks did alright, I've heard better, but sure have heard worse
put my ipod on x2 thru part of it as it was too predictable
I love science fiction. I love the reluctant hero. Characters that try to do the right thing no matter what.
Have almost all of her books but this one was just okay
She was okay but still not better than the voices in my head when I read the books myself.
I love God, my family and my country!
I was disappointed at the number of F-Bombs in this book not to mention all the other profanity throughout the book. I only wish someone had left a review informing potential listeners of this…I would not have wasted a credit!!
So this was daft, but it was fun! The wife is convinced her husband is two-timing her, so she enlists the help of a PI to catch him out. Of course the PI is a hunka chunka so she falls for him, but he has a previous history with the husband, so is he only using her?
