Publisher's Summary

Three siblings searching for the truth about their family are about to find more than they bargained for. . . .

When shy and reserved Maggie Ferringer is called for jury duty, she never expects to be kidnapped by an escaped convict. But when Cain Cannon, disguised as a prison guard, pulls a gun, she has no choice but to be taken hostage. Cain claims that he’s innocent of killing his girlfriend six years ago, and now he wants revenge on the people who put him behind bars.

Soon Maggie becomes more than just a hostage to Cain. As they slowly begin to share the secrets of their respective pasts, Maggie discovers that she wants to fight for Cain’s freedom - because he just might be the kind of man she can love.

    "Maggie's Man"

    I'm in the middle on this one. I didn't like it as much as I'd expected to. Decent romance, decent suspense but it didn't light my fire.

    Kate Rudd's tone for Maggie was too perky and cute for a heroine who's been kidnapped by a convicted felon. That was jarring and all kinds of wrong.

    Story
    "Mildly Entertaining, Heavy Cheese!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would change Maggie however this was published in 97' and Lisa Gardner is one of my favorite authors. Maggie made no sense to me. She is a mousy virgin yet a marriage counselor who had never been in a serious relationship. Really? A very naive and whiny character, Maggie just annoyed me. The characters were not very complex and I'm glad this book was written under Alicia Scott, Maggie is nothing like DD Warren and the other complex characters in her other series.


    Would you recommend Maggie's Man to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this one to a teenager who has limited experiences, they would probably find Maggie more believable.


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

    Never and I think Kate Rudd's narration added to the annoying qualities of Maggie and she reads men like they are cave men. errr.


    Was Maggie's Man worth the listening time?

    As much as I complained throughout this review, I still managed to listen to the whole book in 24 hours so it couldn't have been that bad. As I mentioned I was entertained, the book was not very complex which gave me the ability to multi-task while listening. If it was a DD Warren book or any other Lisa Gardner book, I would have been more captivated and would have stopped the multi-tasking to listen closely.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for Fear Nothing!

    "Not up to Lisa Gardner standards"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I really had a hard time with the narrator - it sounded fake or mechanical and it distracted me so much I almost gave up on the book.


    What didn’t you like about Kate Rudd’s performance?

    Over done and hard to listen to.

    "HORRIBLE"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    A pre-teen


    What could Lisa Gardner have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Her other books are so great. This was like a teen age harlequin story. Not like her other stuff at all.


    What didn’t you like about Kate Rudd’s performance?

    I loathed the pouty spoiled girl voice.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Maggie's Man?

    Honestly, from the get go every scene I could handle listening to seemed amateurish..I have a hard time believing this is the same writer who wrote WHO DO YOU LOVE. If this had been the first of her books I'd purchased, I never would have given any of her other really good books a chance.


    Any additional comments?

    She should remove this book from stores- both online and walk in stores.

    "Immature writing"
    Would you try another book from Lisa Gardner and/or Kate Rudd?

    I will buy more Lisa Gardner but not in this series.


    What was most disappointing about Lisa Gardner’s story?

    The story line seemed very immature compared to her other books. I am a big fan of Lisa Gardner but this was very disappointing.

    I feel that the narrator for this book was exceptional. She did every voice perfect. The storyline was also interesting, it had a little twist in it, also had a little bit of humor it was very enjoyable!

    "A sure no 5"

    I found this book to be one of the most interesting one's, suprising how Maggie is so calm and not scared, but say's just exactly what she think's..I would suggest you get this if you don't have it.

    Story
    "disappointing, soft core porn"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better story and better narration. The Cain character is interesting but not fleshed out enough, and the Maggie character is just ridiculous.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The second in the series, since I already purchased it.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kate Rudd’s performances?

    maybe, but not too soon.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    the story could make an interesting stage play?


    Any additional comments?

    I love Lisa Gardner's previous books, and this has none of the suspense, terror, or well drawn characters her previous works have. The story is disappointingly straightforward, the Maggie character as well as her narration are terrible, and there are parts that I are just soft core porn in disguise. Very disappointing all around.

    Story
    "Too Much Bodice- and Boxer-Ripping"
    What did you like best about Maggie's Man? What did you like least?

    Lisa Gardner's mysteries are usually among my favorites, but the Family Secrets series does not meet her usual high standards. Maggie''s Man was apparently written during the early days of Gardner's career, when she had not yet found her proper voice. This book has far too much panting, moaning and underwear-shedding for my taste.


    Would you recommend Maggie's Man to your friends? Why or why not?

    No - too embarrassing.


    Any additional comments?

    Give me more plot and fewer long, drawn-out sex scenes.
