It's no coincidence when Grace Elland finds a vodka bottle next to the lifeless body of her boss, motivational speaker Sprague Witherspoon. The bottle is a terrifying - and deliberate - reminder of the horrors of her past. Grace retreats to her hometown to regroup and tries to put everything she's learned about positive thinking into practice - a process that is seriously challenged on the world's worst blind date. Awkward doesn't begin to describe her evening with venture-capitalist Julius Arkwright. She has nothing in common with a man who lives to make money, but the intense former Marine does have some skills that Grace can use - and he's the perfect man to help her when it becomes clear she is being stalked. As Witherspoon's financial empire continues to crumble around them, taking a deadly toll, Julius will help Grace step into her past to uncover a devious plan to destroy not only Grace, but everyone around her.

Best of her books. Wonderful characters, intriguing mystery ans delightful romance
Grace's affirmations, though at times too many, are thought provoking
The culprits were a major surprise
Seven reasons why this was a worthwhile use of a credit at Audible.
Excellent narration, Amanda Cobb again did a superb job and made it all a very easy listen.
A set of mysterious circumstances all entwined and linked.
Grace - a charming character who doesn't deserve her life to be turned into the turmoil that happens when she discovers a body. And it's not the first one. She already has nightmares. Grace though is intelligent, talented and mostly positive, she has been the reason why her dead boss has made such an impact.
Julius - while Grace doesn't appreciate the blind date her friends set her up with, it turns out Julius might be the one for Grace. Julius is a successful businessman - nothing bad about that!
Little surprises along the way. Trust the title of the book - Trust No One, that's Julius' little motto and in this case he's on the money.
At the final resolution when the cavalry arrives the women have it all in hand.
Oh yeah!It has a happy ever after. - "Love Changes Everything".
The narration of the book was lacking. The main female character came off as really whinny. I don't know if it was the narrators voice or the way she was reading it, but it left me disappointed. Don't get me wrong, I love Mrs Krentz books, this one just didn't hit the mark.
I had real problems with this reading; I couldn't like the characters as portrayed. The narration sounded stilted with poor inflection, it was hard to discern between characters, and worst of all, most of the characters came across as whiny. Couldn't wait for it to be over.
I am glad I took the chance and got this book. I have really grown tired of the Arcane series and to an extent the Rainshadow series. This book is a complete standalone - straight romantic-suspense. Loved it!
Would try another Krentz book. I loved her book, River Road, and was looking forward to more of her books but this one was disappointing. I may have liked it better if it was narrated by someone else. I won't listen to anymore books narrated by Amanda Cobb. I couldn't wait to finish this book because her narration was terrible. Unrealistic, unnatural, affected narration of dialog. Does Amanda Cobb think people sound like that when they talk? I'm surprised whoever produced this performance thought it was acceptable. If I were the author, I'd be insulted.
Yes, if Amanda Cobb didn't narrate.
Yes, some good dialog
either one would be good
its my first audio book, and i loved this gal's voice, and the way she changed tones and inflections, it was very riveting, and i love jayne ann krentz's sense of humor, and this gal got it all operfectly
the way something would happen and she would say Breath, and you autmatically knew that was an internal thought
I was instantly intrigued with this book and its characters! The narrator did an excellent job! I couldn't put it down. It was thrilling and easy to listen to at the same time. I wish these characters were in a series of books..... I'd read them all. Enjoy!!!
