"A truly suspenseful romance." (Amazon.com)
"Fast-paced, solidly structured." (Publishers Weekly)
Took a little while to get going but then kept me intrigued. I am looking forward to her next book in the series.
The story kept me guessing.
Just other FBI series books by the same author-complicated story line.
Her voice enhanced the story instead of making herself the focus.
The descriptions of her father's visits to her while she was institutionalized. Evil!
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.
It was hard to listen to without rolling my eyes constantly. Some of the situations and conversations were so ludicrous, I wanted to just turn the book off. But I payed for it, so I suffered through it.
This is the first book from Catherine Coulter that I have gotten....it was awesome. Getting the next one and will continue in he series.
I had to find longer ways home so I could keep listening.
I hate it when the narrators "ACT!!!!" Just read the darned story, already. The reader is talented but is really annoying with her cloying little girl voice of the "heroine" and the manly voice of the "hero." Yikes! And the plot is good in many ways, but they keep retelling the events from different perspectives but with the same details. It seemed like filler. I was hating it halfway through, but I stayed to the end.
I know that C Coulter has a loyal following. I've even enjoyed a book or two, but... NO.. just no. This was so poorly written and so lame. Written in the voice of "Oh John... Oh, Martha" sappy romance dime novels, but pretending to be a mystery. Characters are totally unbelievable. NO one would behave that way. Dialog was so inane and the whole plot was ridiculous, a few times I wanted to bang my head on my ipod. I know you ask, then WHY did I continue to listen? I kept hoping (call me the optimist) that at some point it would take a turn and make sense or get better, or come to a conclusion that would have justified the time already invested in listening... but NO. I'm not a literature snob. In fact, I'm rather easy to entertain. I enjoy so many genres and appreciate many different writing styes. I rarely give negative reviews, fully realizing that what we enjoy is highly subjective. But, please save your money. This book is so, so very bad. I got it on sale and if not for that, I would be calling to get my money back.
The genre? What genre was this exactly? It wasn't a romance novel, and sure as heck wasn't a mystery. It had no genre... maybe a comic strip
Sandra was fine. She isn't responsible for bad material. Her voicing and inflections were appropriate and she did her job.
all of the above.
Run... save your money. Don't waste your time.Not to Coulter. Please show more respect for your readers. We deserve better from you.
I have always loved to read. As a child my mom actually grounded me from books if I was in trouble. Noone can do that now. Yay!
The story was predictable and boring. The characters were bland and unlikeable. Nothing about it prompted me to look for the next book in the series.
The performance was adequate, but even that didn't intrique me.
It's about in the middle.
James Quinlan - he was portrayed with more humor.
A little tough sometimes but there were a lot of characters to protray.
Finding out about the murders in The Cove
I think it's important to approach this as a "light" read. Not cloak and daggar. If you have that attitude you will find the book very enjoyable. Sometimes you just want to be entertained.
This book was a bit long but kept your interest. There was a good mystery going on and some characters who were not as they seemed. If I had read this book versus listening to it, I may not have finished it as soon. But, overall, I enjoyed it.
