Publisher's Summary

Unforgettable characters, sizzling romance, and riveting suspense: These are the trademarks of beloved author Judith McNaught. With millions of devoted fans and 10 New York Times best sellers to date, McNaught is a writer whose work just gets better with each new novel - and Every Breath You Take is the book listeners have been waiting for. Returning to the lavish Chicago setting of her popular novel Paradise, and revisiting some of that book's characters as well, this story will captivate in inimitable Judith McNaught style.

High atop a snow-covered hill, the stately old Wyatt mansion is perched like a crown, its stone spires pointing upward, its stained glass windows glowing like colorful jewels. Such opulence means success and, surely, happiness. But on the eve of wealthy philanthropist Cecil Wyatt's 80th birthday, all the money in the world won't bring back his missing grandson, William Wyatt. The only thing for certain: Foul play was involved.

The family, the police, the media - all have tried in vain to discover the young man's fate. Now suspicion has turned shockingly toward William's own half-brother, the rather distant and enigmatic Mitchell Wyatt.

Kate Donovan never dreamed that a chance romantic encounter on a tropical island paradise would tag her as a suspect in a high-society murder case. But after Kate tangles with the darkly charismatic Mitchell Wyatt, she finds herself cast in a shadow of guilt and mistrust. As the Chicago police tighten their net, it will take all of Kate's ingenuity to clear her name. With her calm, cool wit, and the help of a man who may or may not be a dangerous catch, Kate vows to claim the life and love she desires.

    "My Favorite"

    Just love the characters


    Any additional comments?

    "Took out my favorite parts!"
    What disappointed you about Every Breath You Take?

    I have this book and love it. I am so disappointed that chapters were removed. It really took away too much to make it enjoyable.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    You don't get the actual ending except for the happily ever after.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Every Breath You Take?

    NONE!!! I would have included to ones you took out!


    Any additional comments?

    So upset that I paid for this when so much was removed and there were several repeat sentences.

    "Love Judith McNaught!"
    Where does Every Breath You Take rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    From the perspective of plot, depth of characters, this book ranks high. Overall performance ranks very low, painful listening.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Susan Denaker?

    YES! Pace much too slow; made listening to the book frustrating. In summary -- a great book, but terrible narration. The abridged version had a much more suitable narrator; please go back to that person.

    This is one of my favorite books, I have read it so many times I can quote from chapters.. Unfortunately there are chapters missing from this audible edition and some of the lines were were repeated.

    I love the travel the characters Matt and Meredith & Julie and Zach make an appearance


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Laura Dean?

    She is fine but need to pay attention, repeats her lines throughout the book

    Story
    "Love It"
    If you could sum up Every Breath You Take in three words, what would they be?

    Continuous Action, layers


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Every Breath You Take?

    The chemistry at the start. The reuniting at the end.


    What about Laura Dean’s performance did you like?

    I truly believed there were more than one person reading.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Chemistry in the real world.


    Any additional comments?

    I've yet to read a Judith McNaught book that I did not absolutely love. Filled with actions not a bunch of descriptions that are detailed to death.

    "Another Great McNaught"
    Where does Every Breath You Take rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a great story that is well read.


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

    This is my first Laura Dean book


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

    It is the kind of story that makes your heart hurt and end happily ever after.


    Any additional comments?

    Was hoping for more of Matt and Merideth, was a bit disappointed there.

    Story
    "Wonderful book, poor recording"
    Would you try another book from Judith McNaught and/or Susan Denaker?

    I love Judith McNaught, and have been looking for her work in electronic, and audible format. This is the only one I've found so far.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The progression of love of the two characters, the connection to characters from previous books, the way Ms McNaught paints a story. I could go on and on.


    Was Every Breath You Take worth the listening time?

    Yes and no. I love the story, but was often distracted when the recording randomly yet regularly repeated the same thing. It was as if the book did its own thirty second rewind. The first time it happened, I thought I'd done it by accident. But when it continued throughout the book, it quickly became an irritant.


    Any additional comments?

    Whoever edited the recording has taken away what would have been five stars across the board. The random rewinds often took my immersion from the story. If you can overlook that, it will be quite enjoyable.

    "A completely engrossing story for a stormy night or a sunny day at the beach."

    Judith McNaught never disappoints! Lovely romance to lose oneself in for hours of entertainment. Susan Denaker is a great reader that carries one through the story effortlessly.
