Publisher's Summary

As a medical examiner, Serena Hopkins is used to dealing with death. But that doesn't make it any easier when she's called to the eerie scene of a murder - especially when Serena realizes that she knows the victim. Nearly as unnerving is the presence of FBI agent Dominic Allen, her childhood crush. As evidence mounts and points to a serial killer with disturbingly familiar methods, Serena and Dominic must work to find a pattern and stop the killings before the murderer strikes again. And when Serena's own life is at stake, she must decide if the secret she has been keeping has put her next on the killer's hit list. Can she trust Dominic with the truth before it's too late?

    "Great story - bad character voices"

    The story was excellent! However the person who read it was bad with the character voices. She did a good job reading - just the character voices were bad.

    "Terrible narration"

    What I can't understand is why an author would be ok with such a terrible narrator???? It was all i could do to finish, even though i enjoyed the storyline. The only thing that kept me going was knowing that the third book in the series had a better narrator.

    "Okay story but TERRIBLE narration"

    The story line was okay but a little hard to follow--too many characters mentioned but not developed. The change in narrators voice was awful--it really distracted from the story. I almost quit listening several times, but stuck it out.

    Story
    "Story very good but....."

    The continued story in this series was very good. Suspenseful and fast paced. My problem is with the narration. I liked the narrator's enthusiasm but she was awful with additional voices. Part of the problem comes from the first book in the series. That narrator gave each character a personality that enhanced the story. This narration discarded those personalities and constantly pulled me out of the excitement of the story. Many of the voices were so close it was hard to distinguish who was talking. I hope the new narrator in book three gives the characters back their more believable personalities.

    "Wonderful"

    Loved the story so much but the performance was not the best and the change in the voices between the first book and this one was very distracting. Almost like a personality change. However the plot was fantastic and the writing incredible.

    "Great book....very disappointing performance."
    Would you try another book from Lynette Eason and/or Mia Ellis?

    Love Lynette Eason's books. Would not purchase another book performed by Mia Ellis.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I really enjoyed listening to the first book in this series. I was looking forward to the following books; however, the person reading the 2nd book totally ruins it.


    Was When a Heart Stops worth the listening time?

    The story was worth the time. Narration nearly drove me crazy.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish they would either continue these series with the same narrator, or that if they switch, the 2nd narrator would at least take into consideration how the 1st book was performed.

    "Excellent read!"

    The narrator was great. The storyline was great too. The story is suspenseful with romance. It's a clean book based on a Christian perspective.

    "PURE EASON!"

    I just LOVE this series! And this book is pure Lynette Eason!! Lots of intense drama, nail biting suspense, good story, solid characters, romance and some humor. Loved it!

    The narrator was good, but to be honest, I preferred the narrator of the first book; she was just brilliant and it would have been excellent if the same narrator did all three books in the series.

    I made the mistake of downloading book 3 before book 2 and even with that mistake, the story was still good and it did not diminish at all from being one book ahead.
