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.

One of my all time favorite books. I enjoyed the audio edition but there were some repeat sentences. The print edition I have has some additional content that I wish would have been included in the audio
Just love the characters
More Judith McNaught books please!!!
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.
You don't get the actual ending except for the happily ever after.
NONE!!! I would have included to ones you took out!
So upset that I paid for this when so much was removed and there were several repeat sentences.
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
She is fine but need to pay attention, repeats her lines throughout the book
do more Judith McNaught books
Audio-fiction ADDICT !
This book was purely MAGICAL ! This is my first Judith's book . I can not believe how extraordinary her writing is! I love a book that makes your heart ache, those are rare in the new contemporary books.
This is one of my top audiobooks ever!
I am sooo disappointed that there are no more Judith mcnaught's books on audible !!!! PLEASEEEEEEEE audible more Judith books I beg you :(
I enjoy her books but have a pet peeve with either Audible or Publisher. I hate when a whole series is not available. This is book 4. Where is 1 - 3?
Susan did an exceptional job in the reading of this book. she was superb at changing her voice for each character. AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME
From the perspective of plot, depth of characters, this book ranks high. Overall performance ranks very low, painful listening.
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.
Continuous Action, layers
The chemistry at the start. The reuniting at the end.
I truly believed there were more than one person reading.
Chemistry in the real world.
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.
This is a great story that is well read.
This is my first Laura Dean book
It is the kind of story that makes your heart hurt and end happily ever after.
Was hoping for more of Matt and Merideth, was a bit disappointed there.
Do not cut out parts of the book when it is supposed to be unabridged. If you are going to omit pages/scenes from the book, then call the version abridged NOT unabridged. I have read this book more than once and absolutely loved it. I bought this version because it said UNABRIDGED. I had previously listened to the abridged version and was very disappointed because half of the book was cut out. So, when I saw there was an unabridged version, I was looking forward to listening to the WHOLE BOOK, however, there are parts of the book left out. I thought unabridged meant nothing would be cut out; however, that was not the case. I can think of at least 4 scenes that were left out of the book. Without giving too much away for anyone who has not read the book, there is a scene in the book between Calli and Mitchell regarding Kate and Mitchell's relationship after Mitchell learns of Danny and the abduction; one where Danny had shaving cream on his face and was pretending to shave like his father; the small party Mitchell throws after Danny's recovery to try to win Kate back; and Kate's aborted date. There are probably others, but I specifically remember these things from the book. I think these scenes and perhaps others were pertinent to the storyline and since this was supposed to be the unabridged version of the book those omitted scenes should have been included. Also, the narrator repeated sentences a few times during the book. This should have been corrected during the editing process.While this is an excellent book, if you are expecting to listen to the whole unabridged version, then this is not the CD for you.
I enjoyed many of the characters in this book for different reasons.
She repeated sentences. I do not know if that is her fault or if it happened in the editing process.
The book itself runs through the whole spectrum of emotions from anger, sadness, happiness, etc. The CD was a disappointment since certain scenes I expected to listed to were omitted from the book.
I have read (several times) and totally enjoyed all of Judith McNaught's books and would love to see all of them produced on CD in their unabridged entirety.
Not Judith McNaught's best, felt a bit rushed, left loose ends but was quite enjoyable.
i love both of them,but ofcourse in audible i prefereed the print one as i envisioned a different voice for mitchell
the island scene
