Publisher's Summary

After a brush with death due to equipment failure, smokejumper Alexia Allen is ordered to take time off while the incident is under investigation. She makes a last-minute decision to recuperate at her mother's home and attend her high school reunion. Yet trouble seems to be following her, and within hours of arriving home she is confronted with murder, arson, and a handsome detective. But the conflicts ahead are nothing compared to the ghosts of her past. As she struggles to accept and forgive her family's past, she must also decide if the secret she's been guarding for the last ten years must finally come to light.

    I did not like the performance- the up and down cadence was distracting and disappointing.
    The story is amazing.

    Story
    "Suspense, drama, insight"

    Overall the story was good. Main character development and introduction of new characters was relatively thorough. Something bothered me w the entire story though. Why couldn't the bad guys get to Serena if they knew where she was? Also, if the enemy had figured out who was sending notes and they had the resources insinuated, why couldn't she be found? The thoughts of the main two characters were well explained and both gained personal insight and deeper faith. The author did a good job with all that detail but didn't seem to have the same thought out detail with the crime solving. I think if law enforcement saw so many attacks on one person the protection detail would have come sooner and been different. I wanted to like the book. I did enjoy the characters and plot line just too many of the situations in the story started to feel implausible. Then the book ended with a cliffhanger! No wrap up to the mystery that was the main story of the entire book. I felt cheated. Now to get the true ending I guess I need to read the next book.
    The narrator for this book did a good job with different voices and clear speaking but sounded robotic. Not enough emotion or change in diction through the reading. Exact same reading pace.

    "Edge of my seat!"

    Lynette Eason has a wonderful way of keeping you wondering how the next turn is going to end - or is it? Love the narrator on this one. Anyone who likes Christian thrillers will love this author!

    "Intriguing Story"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed following the clues to learn who the real bad guys were. At many points in the story the criminals and their motives were not so obvious. It was also nice to see the main character go through the process of healing and finding the strength to forgive. The romance was very sweet as well.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The poor narration was very distracting... at least until you could get fully wrapped into the story. Although she did the male voices well, it was still a bit annoying to listen to. However, the mystery piqued my interest and I wanted to hear how it ended.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not until I got halfway through it. Because of the narration it was easy to pause from the book and even listen to something else for a little while.


    Any additional comments?

    I haven't checked yet, but I hope book #2 is read by a different narrator. I really want to continue with the story since the end of book 1 left some questions unanswered. However if it is read by the same narrator, I may just have to live with not knowing... or read the book.

    "Couldn't get past the narration"

    The narration was too stilted for me to focus on the story - maybe that's just me, because the book has some good reviews.

    Don't read unless you like leaving loose ends unanswered. Very poor writing technique, Ms Eason.
