Matters get complicated when Sam has to team up with Nick Cappuano, O’Connor’s friend and chief of staff...and the man Sam had a memorable one-night stand with years earlier. Their sexual chemistry still sizzles, and Sam has to fight to stay focused on the case. Sleeping with a material witness is another mistake she can’t afford - especially when the bodies keep piling up.

    "GREAT WHO DUNNIT & ROMANCE"


    This is a wonderful murder mystery with an intriguing plot, well developed characters, and perfect narration. After the privileged senator is murdered, his kinky secret life emerges, adding a host of characters to the list of suspects. The intense romance between Samantha (the chief investigator) and Nick (the late senator's chief of staff) appropriately evolves within the plot.


    I'm disappointed that this is the only book from Marie Force. Please, Audible, add more of her books.

    "A New Author for Me."

    A fantastic first book in a new series. The opening chapter hooks one immediately and doesn't let go till the end.
    Even though I guessed early on who the perpetrator may be it still was a very good finish.
    Give this book a read, a lil gruesome in certain areas but that adds to the mystique of the finish.

    "AMAZING!!!"

    I am so impressed with this book I am almost speechless. The strong strong character relationships carry a powerful mystery that kept me guessing until the final chapter. This was a great beginning to a series. I am hooked and going for the next book.

    This was my first Marie Force book and I bought it on the current special. I am so glad I did.

    The narrator wasn't the best but she didn't ruin this wonderful book. This is definitely one going my list of books to listen to again.

    "A good murder yarn"
    What did you like best about Fatal Affair? What did you like least?

    The characters were good. The murder mystery had good twists and turns. There was plenty of story and it wasn't overtaken by romance.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fatal Affair?

    The bomb and who did it.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Felicity Munroe?

    I wouldn't seek her out but I wouldn't avoid a book because she narrated. She did well differentiating the voices.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes. It had twists and turns.

    "Pale comparison to In Death"

    Even if this author could write as well as JD Robb, this narrator cannot come close to Susan Ericksen. So even with the main character being a cop who gets her car blown up, falls for the hunk cleared of the crime, and has a partner who is always hungry, this series is just a pale comparison of Eve Dallas and In Death.

    "Okay"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The book was pretty good. I was looking for a series that could be comparable to the In Death series as I wanted to stay with strong female lead characters. I enjoyed the story but feel like something was missing....like some characters could have been a little more developed. Of course I really couldn't get in to it like I wanted to because I didn't feel the narrator did any of the characters justice.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The voices seemed weak, almost childlike at times and I didn't think it was a good presentation for a strong female character like Sam.

    Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!

    "Second tier romantic mystery."

    This book was ok, there are much better out there. Buy this on sale or for once in a blue moon. The narrator was just ok and to me that's 75% of what makes the book. The story line was pretty good and the sex was ok but few and far between. The main characters were likable but the narrator just did not do them justice.

    "Good Book, Weak Narration"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fatal Affair to be better than the print version?

    I had not read the print version first but will now go back to read it so that I can better enjoy this book. I believe that the author wrote a significantly stronger book that the one that I heard.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to this book while on vacation and, with better narration, would almost certainly have devoured it in a weekend!

    I enjoy listening to Action Adventure books during my daily, (45 + mins) commute to work.

    "Listened to the all but the last one."
    What made the experience of listening to Fatal Affair the most enjoyable?

    It had murder, mystery, and then a little love story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nick, he just sounds like the "perfect catch."


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

    I liked the presentation.


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

    Meant to be.


    Any additional comments?

    This wasn't too much into the love affair like some of the later editions. I like listening to solving the murder part better.

    "Not my kind of thrills"

    I read the description of the plot and thought it sounded promising....but it delivered very little in terms of interesting twists and good cop drama. In fact, I was amused by the very sensitive and elaborate "bodice ripper' scenes that provided the only interesting "thrills" in an otherwise pretty bland narrative. Guess I should have guessed when I saw that Harlequin was the publisher. If you are into steamy scenes and don't care much about the plot line....go for it!
