Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Julie Garwood takes listeners from New Orleans' exclusive Garden District to the backwoods of Louisiana's mysterious bayou country in an unforgettable novel of passion and suspense that cuts straight to the heart.

When esteemed Justice Department attorney Theo Buchanan is struck ill at a New Orleans gala, Dr. Michelle Renard works fast to save his life. Soon, Theo finds himself in a race to save her when Michelle is targeted by a deadly crime ring. They call themselves the Sowing Club, a devious foursome driven by greed to accumulate millions in a secret bank account. Now they're dead set on silencing Michelle, who might know the secret behind the killing of one of their wives. Dodging a world-class hit man and a band of cunning criminals, Michelle and Theo walk a narrow path between passion and survival.

    "Mercy Please"

    Sorry. Good story as always. Narrator did just fine until she tried Cajun accent. Have listened twice now, hoped it would get better. Really, really did not!!! Please rerecord it with different narrator. Such a disservice to author.

    "Good series"

    I like this series and enjoyed this narrator. She was spot on with her accents. I do wish there was more "love" it's kinda classed over.

    "awful fake accent! Unable to sit through the book!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I don't know about the story, I couldn't get through the accent!


    Would you be willing to try another book from Julie Garwood? Why or why not?

    Yes, with another reader.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Just use your regular voice.

    "southern accent needs work."

    I enjoyed the story, however, the narration on the Cajun accent was not very good. I enjoyed the narrator on all other voices. Infact a good job. redo the Cajun and you have a great listen. maybe just add a slower southern accent.

    "Great Audiobook"

    Julie Garwood is a master at developing characters and plots. Suspense, mystery, and romance from beginning until end.

    Story
    ""Watch Out For Lois""
    What did you love best about Mercy?

    Lots of humor, but if you are in a hurry, you will miss it. This is my second time to listen since first recorded and I really can appreciate Ms Garwoods' classic understated humor. Our hero's interaction with John Patrick is priceless. His description of "Lois" will grab your heart.


    What did you like best about this story?

    deep tenderness, but you can miss it if you are not relaxed to listen


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

    C.T. grows on you with this listen. At first I had to get use to her performance, but found she is very good. I was very surprised at re listening to this story. I am now a fan of hers and will seek out more of her work.


    Any additional comments?

    When Ms Garwood recorded most of this series, I was too busy to really appreciate her ability for subtle humor. I will now have to go back and re listen. DO NOT MISS SWEET TALK! I just re listened and LOVED it. I had not given it a great review at the time and am now greatly sorry I can not take back that review. I love Angela Dawe reading of it.

    Story
    "This one is a Doozie!!!!"

    I own this book in a hardback copy never listened till now and of all Ms Garwood's Books this one is the best story ever it has all good intrigued enough romance and funny situations that makes this story well balance the explicit language was required and well annunciation by the narrator she was never flat and use the correct sounds and made characters come really alive,this would be a great television mini series or an actual small budget movie, I hope that Ms Gardwood's next book that I will purchase has the same elements as this one,great story to listen,and for those people that will buy this book also I recommend the next book, that brings these characters together again and listen is also a great story is Kill joy, buy it you won't regret it.

    Story
    "The book was great... The narration was just ok"

    I really enjoyed the story and the narrator would be fantastic in any other book where a male southern accent isn't a part of the story... Esp a Cajun accent. Every single time she spoke as one of the male characters I was reminded of Yogi Bear saying"Heya BooBoo!! Get thata pick-i-nick basket!" It was so annoying in a funny way. I couldn't helping laughing at her voices even in serious parts of the book. Entertaining though. Worth an on sale price for sure, worth a credit as a story hands down!
