I've listend to a few Sandra Brown books and this one was the best. I even listened to it again straight after I enjoyed it that much. The twists and turns were brilliant. Thank you for a great read/listen...makes my nights at work go much quicker...thanks
This is an awesome story with great characters and a thrilling plot. The story was long, but there were several twists and turns in the story to fill the time. And the narrator was fantastic!
Not sure what the previous reviewer disliked this story so much. I found it thoroughly entertaining and well worth the credit!
I decided to pick up Where There's Smoke after devouring both Mirror Image and White Hot. I'm glad it was on sale. The story wasn't bad, but it didn't live up to my high expectations after reading the first 2 books. Although the book maintained a good pace throughout with many twists and turns, I had a hard time enjoying it, especially after its conclusion.
One of the big problems with the audiobook was that the main characters weren’t likable. Key was more relatable than Lara, but halfway through the book he was still acting like a playboy. And while Lara wasn't a bad person, I found her very self-righteous, which turned me off her character. She was always preaching or harping at someone, which was funny since an affair had landed her in her current situation.
However, my biggest dislikes were the sex scenes and the final mystery. Usually I have no issues with sex in books, but in this case I found the vocabulary used vulgar. It wasn't sexy at all! And then the twist at the very end also put me off. Had it been revealed closer to the beginning I would have found Lara more relatable.
Although Where There's Smoke was an entertaining audiobook that contained a maze of mysteries, there are better books out there, including ones by Sandra Brown. I guess I'll just have to resume my search for the perfect book, because I didn’t find it here.
Hated sex scenes & any dialogue about sex...language was beyond unrealistic...lots of contradictions.....describes character or situation & within 2 minutes whatever happens next doesn't fit with the character development. Poorly written...felt like modern day harlequin romance. BLECK!
disappointment ....found myself speaking out loud to the narrator about how unrealistic a comment or situation was.
wish I hadn't bought....
I have read most of Sandra Brown' s books. This one was very hard to get into. I finally gave up after a few tries.
The various characters and their stories.
An abundance of talent. Natalie Ross is one of my favorite female readers.
The final chapter.
I love Sandra Brown and have listened to almost 20 books on tape but I was really impressed with this one. Actually one that I started a few years ago but got away from it, Glad I finished it!
Say something about yourself!
That not everything ends well like a fairy tale, but well enought not to have a sour taste when you finish reading
Mirrow image or other Sandra Brown novels
The secondary characters. Key's sister
There is WAY TOO MUCH filler. So much going on that is really not important at all. I get why some of the characters were introduced - but too much time was spent on completely insignificant stories. Additionally, the trip to South America was way too farfetched and lent little to the story.
Yes. I have enjoyed some of her works in the past.
I dont remember. However, I though she did an excellent job on the different characters.
I am writing this review mainly because I depend on reviews in making my decisions. This book is ok. I agree with previous reviewers that said the main characters were unlikeable. Honestly, I couldn't have cared less if they ended up together or not. I really dont know why they did based on the events of the story. On top of that, the woman was an idiot. She supposedly made these career decisions against the will of her parents and made decisions about going to South American - decisions that would make one think she strong willed; however, she sits by and lets the men in her life make decisons that ruin her life. Those are conflicting personality traits that make her unlikeable. And the main guy is just a major jerk.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
good story line
the unexpected mystery, Ms Brown always adds in her story
I love all of Ms Ross's reads...I buy stories based on her reading it.
You do not want to miss this one
This is a Sandra Brown novel; can't help but read her books. Didn't care for the narrator's voice. Story was predictable.
Good or bad Sandra's stories are captivating. Even it the story may not have depth, it still enjoyable.
The released from captivity and was in the hotel.
