Still reeling from her young son's death, Jackie Sheppard retreats to a small town in the Colorado Rockies. Comforted that no one knows of her tragic past, she's thrilled to take a job at a family law firm, where she meets Tom, the local carpenter. Jackie's distrust of others hinders their relationship, but they slowly build a budding romance.
However, as she begins to settle into her new life, disturbing things start happening to Jackie - objects are moved around her house, an indentation of a body appears on her freshly made bed, and a bouquet of wildflowers are inexplicably left by her door. With eccentric residents in the town, Jackie dismisses the oddities, but as Tom's checkered background reveals that his wife and child were murdered, Jackie believes she may be the next target of a sadistic killer.
Acclaimed for its strong characters and thrilling plot, Mind Tryst is Robyn Carr's only psychological suspense novel. Delighting fans of suspense since 1993, it will continue to leave listeners looking over their shoulders long after they've finished.

I love all of Robyn Carr's books, she is one of my favorite authors. Let me say this is not a Virgin River novel! This is a sit on the edge of your seat thriller and kept you guessing until the end. I couldn't turn it off and listened until the wee hours of the night. From what I understand, this is an older book but there is no hint of that the story is very timely. The characters were very real and the narration was right on. Well worth a credit!
I love reading and audible is the easiest way to keep up with my voracious appetite for the written word.
I think I've read every Robyn Carr book and, while realizing that this book would be different, I wasn't ready for such a departure from her tried and true genre. In short, I loved it. I liked the character development and the twists and turns of the storyline. I was initially a little conflicted with Jackie's "hunches" about Tom, but just decided to go with it and now I'm glad I did. Robyn, feel free to entertain/scare us with more of these stories.
I am someone who enjoys audible books very much now that they exist. As a young student (real young) I can remember a teacher telling me how books can transport people to different places & open up a whole new world. This is how listening to audible books make me feel. Now if I can just stop falling asleep while listening to them at night I would be fine. Ha ha
Very, very high in writing style, believability & intrigue.
I can't answer that it would give the ending away, I will say this - Wow, this book had everything a great mystery thriller book called for. It was like a cross between Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde & Sherlock Holmes. I liked everything about this book, especially how cleverly the plot kept unravelling & unravelling. From a psychological viewpoint it was mind boggling & I kept finding myself slipping into the place of the main character “Jackie.” Although I do not think I would have been as courageous & determined as she was. What is so sad is there are evil people roaming the earth like that.
I only use aufible books but she was great.
Yepper, but I had to give my mind a break every once in a while as it was overwhelming.
This was the first book by this author i have heard, but i think i will be coming back for more.
Absolutely. I love Robyn's normal romance books but I disliked this book. And yes I knew this was a different genre.
I am listening to Kristin Higgins
I don't know but this narrator had a depressing voice
I don't know, I didn't get further than 71 minutes into the book
I found this book to be absolutely depressing. I listened to 71 minutes, the first two chapters and it was all about this woman's depression with dealing with the loss of her son in a car accident and short marriage. It was just very difficult to listen too, not because of the loss but 71 minutes of the loss with more to come I am sure then to find out the male character was coping with the loss of his wife and child who had been murdered, WTH, now I have to listen to two people go on and on and on about it? This is a story, fiction, and it should not have taken over the whole story, this was just not entertaining. I got to a point where I was dreading listening to the next fifteen minutes as I was just expecting more and more of the same bleak, disheartening reading.
I usually love Robyn car but this one left me needing a happy story.
I listen for enjoyment and this just left me shook up
I only listened to the audio.
Jacque, she is a very strong a courageous woman
No, I have not.
Yes, not only did it keep you guessing but I live in the Wet Mountain Valley which made it more fun for me.
If the book references actual places maybe a little research should be done to assure correct pronunciation of the towns. Otherwise great job.
kept my interest from the first to the last
don't have one
she is a great reader
I really enjoyed this book, and I would really recommend it to anyone, it kept me in suspense until the end, the narration was good, and the sexy voice of Tom was really good, the narration was good, a good plot, I sort of figured out who Tom really was, but won't say anything about the ending. Be sure if you don't have this book, get it, it's a keeper...
This book scared the life out of me and yes I will listen to it again - but just not yet. I am a great fan of Robyn Carr and I hope she writes more books of this genre. This book was nothing like the other Robyn Carr books I have read but it was so well written that I am surprised it has taken this long for it to be made into an audiobook.
The book was always on the go - I really didn't find any flat spots. The plot kept twisting an turning. I guessed early on that Tom was not who he appeared to be but the way his previous life was woven into the story made this book compelling listening.
I have always enjoyed listening to Christina Traister. Some of her male voices can be hard to differentiate but her voice inflection, timing and fluidity always make for excellent narration.
When Jackie heard them say that Tom AKA Jason was still alive. I thought no!!! what does she have to do to kill him. And knowing that he has survived means that I will always wonder if he escaped again. Is he back out there? Will Jackie ever be able to sleep again!
I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys being just a little bit scared!
It is what it's named. You think you know, then you know you don't. In the end, I was surprised at the way the maze worked out
