Publisher's Summary

The Cove is a quaint little postcard town made up only of old folk who sell the World's Greatest Ice Cream - a secret recipe that brings lots of tourists into town.

Into The Cove comes Sally Brainerd, daughter of murdered Amory St. John, of Washington, D.C., seeking sanctuary, and FBI Special Agent James Quinlan, who's undercover and after her. He's got a murder to solve, and he believes she's the key. But is she really?

Listen to another FBI Thriller.

    "Pretty Awful"

    Cheesy romance novel vaguely disguised as a mystery. I'm really surprised this lady has sold so many books. This was my first listen/read of Coulter and will be my last.

    "MORE TWISTS THAN A SNAKE WITH A BELLY ACHE!"

    ANother fine example of how CAtherine Coulter can grab you on page one and not let you up for air till the last chapter. Suspence., humor, disgust, anger and. thrilling are just a few words to describe this storey. Its a fun ride from start to finish and the narration was an excellent asset.

    "Get on with the story already!"

    Yawn. It is as if this were Coulter's first book! The narration like nails on a chalkboard, especially Sally. Author tried to portray her as a tough character but the voice is that of a helpless little girl. The story isn't bad but dragged on and on. If I heard the word "Sanitarium" one more time I was going commit myself into one! Skip this one.

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

    Someone with a small vocabulary.


    What was most disappointing about Catherine Coulter’s story?

    The dialogue was boring and not believable. For example, a seasoned FBI agent threatens a member of a biker gang by saying, "I'll flatten you!" It sounds like my grandma is writing the dialogue for the characters. I keep waiting for the murder suspect "Oh golly, I am in a pickle!"


    Which character – as performed by Sandra Burr – was your favorite?

    Honestly, none of them were relatable enough to care about them. I stopped listening a third of the way through because my mind kept wandering.

    "Worst narrator ever"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I can't evaluate overall or the story since I couldn't make it through the second chapter with the narrator. I listen to many audiobooks and I"ve never heard anyone so bad. It makes me mad to have spent the money.

    "okay story, terrible narration"

    The story was fun, but farfetched. Clunky dialogue made worse by the terrible narration. The male voices, in particular, were horrible (nasal, pitched, grating). Almost "returned" the book but didn't since I did listen to entire thing.

    "Painful..."

    The story itself was enough to keep me listening, but just barely. The writing was horrible, and the narration almost unbearable. I'm thankful to be finished with it, and won't read another in the series.

    "Fluff"

    I didn't realize that this book was really a "Barbara Cartland" book! So disappointing and so ridiculous. Will not choose this author again.
