"Eden's characters are complex and likable, and her plot speeds along breathlessly to a surprising and sizzling conclusion." (Publishers Weekly)
The story - this whole series is very well written and interesting. Cynthia Eden keeps you on the edge of your seat with the plot. It is very cleverly written and hot, hot hot.
Terrible southern accents. I don't know why the narrator gives this whole team southern accents. I don't think any of them except maybe Luke Dante is supposed to be from the south. Between wanting the narrator to cough or clear her throat and her really, really bad southern accent - it was difficult at times not to be pulled out of the story.
The story was really good enough to overcome the really bad narration - but it's too bad they didn't select a more skilled narrator. There is nothing worse than someone who is obviously not from the south trying to sound like they are :-)
It was a good romantic mystery, I did think I had figured it out but wasn't sure I was right until the very end. Strong characters, mysterious plot, and great hero and heroine.
It kept me on the edge thru the entire story.
Her voice was always shaky and breathy. The voices and accents were so bad and I couldn't tell if they were thinking or if they spoke, I really missed quotation marks in this one and think the book would have been the better choice.
Deadly Lies was intriguing almost from the start. I was enthralled from the beginning of the book. I was amazed by the maze the author set up for me. I wanted to be one of the people in the book, trying to figure it all out. when everything started coming to light I was just going crazy, trying to tell the characters who it was, who to look for, and what to do as if they could hear me. I didn’t exactly figure it all out because there were so many people involved. When the actual kidnapper/killer came to light I wanted to get into the book and kill him myself. This book was filled with intrigue, treachery, love, hate, and a whole host of emotions. I couldn’t believe it all, but I was fascinated by the picture she painted, and how it all turned out. To me, this was the best book in the trilogy, and the author made me want to read more of her books. Unfortunately, Audible doesn’t have any more of her books. Hopefully, they’ll get a few more.
Again, the reader was good. Sometimes, a narrator can make or break a book, but in this case, she did a good job of making the book as good as the author did.
OMG!!! Great book....although Deadly Fear is my favorite of the series so far. Can't wait for the next book Audible releases for Eden.
I liked 1 and 2 in 3 I don't know how they kept her as an agent. She gave a black eye to professional women. She was bedding a suspect and told her boss she wouldn't do what she was suppose to do she was a very weak person and a bad agent 3 could be scrapped
