Family secrets and a hidden past - a woman's search to uncover the truth ignites danger and passion in this novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood.
Cordelia Kane has always been a daddy's girl - her father raised her alone after her mother died in a car crash when Cordelia was just two years old. So when he has a serious heart attack, Cordelia is devastated, and the emotion is only intensified by the confusion she feels when he reveals the shocking truth about her mother.
Cordelia can't suppress her curiosity about the woman who gave birth to her, and when she discovers the answers to her questions lie in Sydney, Australia, she travels there to get them.
Hotel magnate Aiden Madison is Cordelia's best friend's older brother. He's oblivious to the fact that she's had a crush on him for years. When he gets railroaded into taking her along to Sydney on his company jet, he's unwittingly drawn into a volatile family drama.
Aiden wants to help Cordelia get answers about her mother, but threats from her wealthy, high-powered family are quickly becoming dangerous. Sparks are flying between Cordelia and Aiden, but after multiple attempts are made on Cordelia's life, Aiden realizes he must put a stop to the madness before he loses the thing he values most.

Maybe - pretty bad narration on this one.
Probably. I waited so long to finally have Aiden and Cordi's story. Love this series. Only problem with this one was the big "climax" of the story was too distant and removed from the main characters. Didn't get that - sort of anti-climatic at the end of the day b
Someone a lot better with male voices and accents. Pretty bad.
I want to see the characters continue.
A little disappointed - maybe after the long wait for this book - too much expectation. Really think the main characters should have been more involved with the final takedown.
Say something about yourself!
Happy to have the trilogy completed. Had just re-listened to Fire and Ice, and wondered when we'd find out about Cordi and Aiden.
Tanya Eby does an adequate job, but the male voices and accents were not the best.
Yeah, I would have like to have listened to this all in one sitting.
Didn't agree with some of the negative reviews I read before listening to the book.
I have never read a book by Julie Garwood that was anything but entertaining. As far as Tanya Eby goes, while the accent's could have been better. I have listen to much worse narrator's. All of Ms. Garwood's character's would be great in a book of their own. A book with these main characters have long been awaited. And for me was a real treat. I would love to see Walker's, Spencer's, and Liam's stories told.
I have been a Julie Garwood fan for some time now. I love 'Fast Track' I listened to the book in my car on my way to work. There were a few times I didn't want to leave my car, I just wanted to keep listening to the story. I love all her books. wish I could say I loved one more than the other but just can't do it..
Having Regan, Sofie and Cordie back together again..
How Cordie handled the first meeting with her mother.
I love the way the men in her stories are so wonderful....
I'm so glad this book has finally been written, now the series is complete. I enjoyed this one as much as Murder List and Fire and Ice. I like Julie Garwood's writing and am never disappointed. If it's new, I'll be in line to get it.
Middle of the range. It was good, entertaining, but I've definitely listened to better by Ms. Garwood.
Cordelia - she was head strong without being stupid.
I like Tanya Eby and she did a decent job. The Australian accents could have been better, but overall, it wasn't bad.
The beginning of the book with her father was very well written and touching.
Not a bad book. If you've read a lot of Ms. Garwood's books, then you'll know this isn't like her historical romance novels, which will always be my favorite genre by her. This storyline was better than the one for Sophie. Murder List, however, will be the best of this trilogy.
I don't write many negative reviews because I usually just return a book that is this bad...which is hard to say about such an incredibly talented author like Julie Garwood. I also realize that sometimes a book just doesn't suit the reader, but that doesn't mean it isn't going to be a good story for someone else. So, I kept plugging away at this one because I have been waiting for Cordie and Aiden's book. Which made it all that more disappointing that this story was so lackluster. It moved slowly, gave the two main characters very little time together, and not a believable romance. For me, this one way a total bust.
HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Books outside HOT genre = books given to me to review
I love Julie Garwood and am always excited to listen to a book by her. This one had me in its grips, just enough romance, mystery and action… Great stuff! Then at about the midway point it just got silly. Not even the normal cookie-cutter alpha male and delicate female, I have no other word and silly.
Don't hold this review against the author. However there are many more of her books both historical and contemporary, that are a lot of fun, dramatic etc. Look into her Hotshot series for contemporary and almost any of her historical have received four stars from me for story and overall.
Tanya Eby does an adequate job with the material given – it is performed as a story instead of the narrator trying to jump into different roles.
Notes: A few racy scenes in the boudoir
Credit worthy/$: I would not use a credit nor pay full price for this Julie Garwood I'm pretty sure I got this on sale-either paid outright or if it was a 2 for 1 credit opportunity.
Thank you for reading my review. If you found it helpful, please select yes below.
Cordelia always had a crush on her best friend's brother, Aiden, but it takes the aftermath of her father's death to bring them together. Along with a murder plot against her, because she seeks out the mother she thought had died when Cordelia was a baby.
So the story is a little bit unbelievable, but I like how Julie Garwood brings this three part series to a close.
The narrator was pretty good, the male voices were not as good as they could have been and she reads a little faster than I like, but I would definitely listen to her again.
