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!
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.
Just loved the surprise at the end . To find out who really was in the honeymoon suite. I just swore it was Jan Ellen.
I would recommend it, with warnings about its shortcomings.
I don't know yet.
If Sandra Brown were to write a follow-up now, it would be far better than the original.
This was a terrible book in so many ways, but I had to keep listening in spite of its many faults. The best feature was Natalie Ross's first rate narration. It went a long way in overcoming the book's shortcomings. I am a big fan of Sandra Brown, but this 1993 title is not up to her current standard. Much of it reads like a trashy romance, with a heroine who makes as many stupid choices as your average horror story stooge. However, there were moments that showed the author Sandra Brown would come. There were unexpected twists that compelled me to finish the book, even as I groaned at the cheesy dialogue and obvious errors in logic and facts. It was also enlightening to see how much our social attitudes have grown in the past twenty-two years. I'm not sorry I read the book.
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!
