The facts are public knowledge: five people have been murdered. Each has died from a blow to the head. And the media-dubbed Prince Charming killer has left a “calling card” with each victim. A single thornless rose.
But there’s another fact...one that the police haven’t made public. Something no one, except the killer and the police, should know. But Gabriel Donner does - and he can’t figure out why. All he knows is that he’s begun hearing voices, sleepwalking and dreaming vividly of the murders...as they happen.
He can’t go to the police, but there is someone who can help him. Laura Dane, a psychic who’s worked on cases like his before, is the only person he can trust with his terrible truths. But as her suspicion about Gabriel’s innocence grows, so does the evidence that points to his guilt. Because Gabriel knows more than any innocent man should.

Yes....Sharon is an excellent writer. This is a very well written book. Just a bit too sad....
Someone who really seemed to enjoy the story. Whether it's the writing or the narration, it was short and choppy. I almost couldn't finish the book.
the story lives up to the expectations set by Sharon Sala's other books. the narrator hits just the right note - capturing the nuances and subtleties of the characters and moments, without being over the top. for those who are new to Sharon Sala, this is a great place to start.
The intricate plot, with changes and surprises at every turn. It really grips your attention.
The story could run the risk of being seen as overly sentimental, but it steers clear of that. the narrator really helps keep this grounded, so you can relate to the different characters and feel them as fully-detailed individuals with a range of moods and emotions.
happily ever afters
Hands down the narration. Am I wrong in thinking it's the director's job to actually "direct" the voice artist so they don't come across as though their bored with the story?
What's so sad is that this book in paperback form has remained on my keeper shelf for years; and, I leaped at the opportunity to own it in audio form. It's a great, intriguing romance with fully developed characters.
True audio book fans will agree a skilled narrator is as important as the author's story. A narrator can make or break your listening experience. It pains me to say that I did not like this narrator's style in the least. Wallpaper paste has more life, more personality than a reading that sounded, for lack of a better word, quite elementary.
None because the story wasn't overwritten.
I'd love to know who makes the decisions on reader assignments and what considerations are taken into account.
And a general comment - Why does Audible purchase and add series books out of sequence?
