The product of old San Francisco wealth, the daughter of a man who despises her, her life is forever changed when she is brutally assaulted by her sister’s husband, and then rejected by her family. Lindsay is finally forced to face up to her past when she meets S. C. Taylor, a tough ex-cop turned private investigator and computer troubleshooter. He is hired to protect her; but can he both win her trust and discover who is trying to kill her and why? Is it her family? A supposed friend or colleague?

    "A Romantic Mystery!!"
    Any additional comments?

    Coulter does a great job of weaving mystery and romance into a story with a great plot and interesting characters that you love and detest.

    I really enjoyed this story that begins with a terrible betrayal of trust and leads to violence, intrigue, romance, and vindication. Teenager Lindsay Foxe has every reason to give up after horrific treatment by her brother-in-law and receiving no support from her society family. Yet, she finds the will to become a successful young lady. The story leaves the reader wondering who continues to attack Lindsay as an adult and why they will not leave her alone. Detective Taylor provides Lindsay with the support and love that she never received from her family. Renee Raudman and Paul Costanzo provide excellent performances for each of the characters.

    "Amusing Story"

    The story itself was pretty good, the writing was a bit crappy -- she needed to hang around with REAL cops or do more research to learn how to talk tough. Most of the police interaction wasn't even close to realistic but the story was amusing. Her leaping back & forward was ackwardly put, it wasn't clear exactly where you went for a paragraph or two. Expecially on the Taylor parts.

    The narrators needed to be more balanced. Renee delivered her usual great performance - Paul was too lackluster and tended to make his portion drag.

    Story
    "Interminably Tedious....."
    What disappointed you about Beyond Eden?

    I am only half way through and don't know if I can - or even want - to finish this book. The only character in this book I can stomach is Taylor - he seems to be the only normal one in the bunch. Eden/Lindsey is a completely spineless wuss! While I could feel real sympathy for her at 16....by the time she hits her 20's, I am like, really?? Find your spine and tell that crazy moranic family to go jump off the Golden Gate bridge. Yikes, she is annoying....


    Has Beyond Eden turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrators were ok - I just don't usually care for 2 narrators doing a book, it seems disjointed and often pulls you out of the story when the voices change back and forth.


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

    Anger at the sheer stupidity of the main character and lack of spine. Her family is supposed to be evil - but really came across as cartoon villains. And have mercy - way too long to get the story told. Just scene after scene of this spineless woman trying to grow a set and stand up for herself. Really tedious.


    Any additional comments?

    So - maybe I'll finish it - but probably not.

    "Cruel and brutal in the beginning"
    Any additional comments?

    After four hours of this depressing tale I couldn't imagine a reason to go on. Cruelty, brutality and abuse fill the first four hours. If you are tender-hearted, I can not recommend it.

    "AWESOME! Of Course Its Catherine Cojlter"

    This book is SO GOOD that I was pissed off that it ended! The characters are so delicious and intersting! I loved this book! The narrators are spectacular! Catherine Coulter is again ALWAYS a good read and I just hate when the books end! Ms. Coulter's books are wonderfully engaging and just a joy to read/listen to.

    Story
    "Excellent book"
    If you could sum up Beyond Eden in three words, what would they be?

    It's so sad that this book is really close to the truth, men shouldn't be able to get away with raping a woman, and the rape victim should never be blamed. It's a frustrating world we live in when you see the guilty get away with a crime and someone innocent will go to jail because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time.


    What three words best describe Renee Raudman and Paul Costanzo ’s voice?

    I like their voices but Paul is very hard to hear at times, its very difficult to listen to this book because I have to turn the volume down a little for Renee's parts and then turn the volume all the way up for Paul and he's still hard to hear.

    "Really Bad Performance"
    How could the performance have been better?

    The Male narrator was unimaginative. He very clearly read every word and was definitely not believable. The female was better, changing her voice appropriately for the different characters. There was an actual difference in the volume between the male and female narrator. It was very noticeable from the very beginning of the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I've been a Catherine Coulter Fan for years, and if I had read the book I would have enjoyed it. The story was good, and during those times that I could overlook the bad performance, I loved it.

    "Really bummed out"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you like Catherine Coulter you can do what I did and make yourself listen to it. I am a big fan of hers and I am pushing myself to get through it. Its very predictable and I feel that the story needed more behind it.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not sure yet


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Renee Raudman and Paul Costanzo ?

    Of course


    What character would you cut from Beyond Eden?

    Her father, her sister, stupid professor. After what happened to her in the beginning that could have led to a good romance with her adorable body guard, then onto a good suspense thriller. Instead it is dragging
